My son and I recently toured Colgate University and spent the night at this lovely inn. It is situated right in the heart of Hamilton, about 1/4 mile from the university. Check in was efficient and welcoming, the rooms are very well appointed with flat screen tvs and updated bathrooms. The bed was extremely comfortable with nice linens. We enjoyed...

Tavern/restaurant: awesome! Decor, lobby, friendliness: awesome! Quiet sleep: not good The HVAC does not allow the temp to be set below 68 and even worse doesn't allow the fan to be set to permanently "on". The hallways and walls are a bit noisy so you can't sleep unless you bring your own white noise machine. Mattresses are also softer than...

If you're in the area, make sure you stay here. They really capture the details of a small town with this Inn - the price reflects it, it's a bit expensive for the area. The bed was incredibly comfortable and I didn't have any noise issues. The restaurant attached was delicious for both dinner and breakfast. The room I stayed...

I travel quite frequently to college campuses for work and have stayed at other inns in college towns--both the Middlebury Inn and the Williams Inn--and the Colgate Inn is in a class by itself. Beautiful renovations without losing the historic character of the building. Tasteful furnishings and impeccably clean bathroom. The small details also make a big difference--from local chocolates...

The Colgate Inn is beautiful and situated at the bottom of the commons that leads up to Colgate. Much like other college inns (the Nassau Inn at Princeton or the Nittany Lion Inn in State College, PA) we have enjoyed staying close to the campus for the buzz and collegiality that proximity spins. The Colgate is in the same flavor...

Stayed at Colgate Inn this past weekend when in town from NYC for a wedding! This property exceeded my expectations. I got in to the room early, the room was very well appointed and well designed. The bed was outrageously comfortable and the shower was a nice size. We ordered room service in the morning and everything was sent up...

Stayed twice now at this wonderful inn. The decor is like taking a step back in time but done so you still have the modern conveniences of today. The rooms are done with early1900's furniture, with lots of home like decorations. The bar and restaurant is warm and cozy. Food is very good and they have a great selection of...

The staff will do all they can to make your stay comfortable. The Inn is gracious, old and a bit of a time warp, but really the only place I would recommend in town. The bar and restaurant are well appointed and comfortable, the rooms are small, but you will want to be out enjoying the town and the campus....

The Colgate Inn is a gem. If you're heading to Hamilton for a visit to Colgate or just in the area, check out the Inn. It's always been a centerpiece of town and after a recent renovation it's even better. Rooms are very nicely appointed and the lobby, bar and restaurant are all very nice.

Lovely historical inn in center of Hamilton. Rating average due to room. Small and lacking luster. A bit tired. Overlooked the roof and windows of other rooms so had to keep blinds closed. For over $300 a nite it was difficult to justify. Wanted the experience but won't return unfortunately.
