Room was very clean, worked great for a place to stay for a college visit for one night. Owner was very nice and helpful, and so was his family. If I come back for other visits or am ever in the area, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

The hotel itself was at a great location. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room had a fantastic setup and very clean. And who doesn't love free wifi! Overall it was a great room all for a good price!

When I arrived I was greeted with kindness and a smile. My two, and one year old were very comfortable. The playground was especially fond of by my babies, the grounds were nice, with a comfortable distance from the road. For an older inn it was fairly well maintained. I would recommend this to travelers because the cost was fair,... More

I read the reviews of the Scottish Inn but remained skeptical. However, upon my arrival, I was pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, window air conditioner worked great, small but still had a microwave and fridge in the room. The owners were super friendly and helpful. They had coffee, bagels, cereal and pastries for breakfast along with fresh fruit. It... More

This locally owned, older but refurbished motel was spotless. All the basics were there, and the owners were very anxious to see that we were comfortable and our needs were met. Beds were comfortable and the rooms were quiet. Shower, microwave, fridge, and furniture were new or in like-new condition. A pleasant screened-in gazebo with comfortable chairs for reading is...

Rooms are very nice with a roomy bathroom. We just melt into the bed at night,,,,very comfortable. Appreciate the cleanliness rooms and picnic area,,,,,especially enjoyed the hammock. They give small town attention, which seems to becoming more and more scared. 5 star

Having spent three hundred days a year in motels due to the dictates of work, this is without a doubt, one of the worst! Continental breakfast consists of what appear to to be month old Hostess doughnut packs and stale coffee. A stench of incense constantly permeates the lobby emitting from the front desk. The baseboards don't appear to have... More

This was a nice motor lodge. Very clean, reasonably quiet. Good location, right outside of Potsdam. We enjoyed our stay here. We had a queen size bed with a flat screen tv. Window unit air conditioner. Microwave and mini-fridge. Screened-in gazebo out front. We will definitely stay here again.

The price is good. the location is near town, but far enough out that it is quiet. Although on the main road, it is set back from the road behind a large lawn and trees, so the highway sounds are muted. The rooms are clean and well laid out with a large size mini-fridge. The included breakfast is modest, but... More
