This place was inexpensive, clean, and comfortable. It looks like the rooms were recently updated. I would think they are the cheapest place to stay in Potsdam. Initially I had my worries but they were quickly gone when I walked into the room. It looked like they did quite a bit of business on a random Saturday night in January....

Nice service, clean rooms. Walmart, ALDI, AT&T is near, as well as Clarkson University. You can even take a stroll and get there, if you don't have a car in your possession. And of course very convenient price.

Had to find emergency lodging for our daughter near her college. Helpful and friendly owners, worked with us as we stayed together for the week, and made long-term arrangements for our daughter's room. Very inexpensive. A simple, clean room with microwave, refrigerator, good heat and free Wi-Fi. We got several good nights sleep there. When our plans changed the owners...

This is a nice looking hotel from the road-well maintained. The price was reasonable. The lobby smelled heavily of incense. The room seemed okay from the beginning,but then..we noticed the carpet hadn't been vacuumed. The vanity in the bathroom hadn't been cleaned (gross) AND the garbage hadn't been emptied from the last guests in the room (disgusting). The soap was...

I frequently stay at this location for business and have never been disappointed by the accommodations or service. Likewise, the staff could not be more friendly and treat one like family. Rooms are consistently clean and equipped with all the necessities one requires when traveling and more. This includes a large flat screen tv, fast wifi, a microwave and fridge....

Rooms in the Potsdam-Canton area are expensive for what you get and if you stay at a chain type of hotel you will likely pay double what the Scottish Inn costs and it's definitely not worth paying double. I stayed in room 109 for three nights and my room was spotlessly clean, nicely furnished, with newer style beds, desk, dresser,...

Best place to stay in St. Lawrence County. The couple, the business owner, are really very friendly, helpful. Close proximity to SUNY Potsdam and Clarkson University. Offered me ride to bus station early morning, offered tasty food. I will definitely stay here again.

Potsdam is a vibrant community and the service-oriented live-in managers made my stay pleasant and memorable. Scottish Inns is not a boutique inn with their facility, but their clean rooms and thoughtful service tip the scales in their favor for me. (The rate is also $100 less than the boutique inn). Thank you Kirit for your outstanding hospitality, I will...

I concur with the other positive reviews I see here. I'd never stayed with this brand before and did not know what to expect, and I was pleasantly delighted. This is a small family owned property where my first experience was not that of being checked-in, but more like I was being welcomed into a friend's home. Room was quite...
