The staff at the Clarkson Inn is wonderful, and the room very comfortable. It is right in downtown Potsdam, so one can walk to everything they need. Book early, as they will fill up. Don't let the remote location fool you. Lots of ice hockey...More

Lovely welcome in the lobby, Tea Time was nice, and the room was large, well equipped, clean, comfortable. Overall, the property decor is vintage but well kept. Besides, we were there to visit college, walked around town and enjoy the weekend!

After many visits to Potsdam while our kids were in college the charm of this hotel keeps us coming back. There is a Victorian historical feel with this hotel, they have a lovely afternoon tea, and comfortable rooms. Truelly an original and gem.
