Terrific stay! I was graciously received, had a nice room with all the amenities including Wi-Fi and complimentary continental breakfast. Dinner in their tavern was very good – friendly staff, nice atmosphere, imaginative food. They care enough to bring in local produce, artisan baked goods (admittedly from an affiliated company), feature seasonal menu items, and to have 5 local craft brews on tap. All for less than the price of a typical Hampton Inn. For context, I accumulated enough Hilton Honors points in 2008 for my family to stay nine free nights in Italy, so I’ve been in a few hotels. I cannot fathom the negative comments. If you are looking for a sterile experience in an anonymous, cookie-cutter hotel whose idea of breakfast is Trix and Sugar Pops served on Styrofoam with plastic utensils, complemented by a Costco box of muffins and sweet rolls, then stay at a Hampton, you’ll be happy there. If you like human interaction with the staff, a welcoming atmosphere, real plates, metal utensils, and table cloths, then the Colgate Inn is a step up for no incremental money. Oh, and you can actually take a walk around picturesque Hamilton, as opposed to being stuck on a highway access road five miles out of town across the way from the Anywhere, USA mall (Applebee’s, anyone?). Do I have quibbles? I have quibbles with every place I have ever stayed. The breakfast room is too dark and cold, the Wi-Fi seems slow. Yes, the bathroom is small, so what, I was not planning on holding meetings in there. I guess they should put out free coffee and cookies in the lobby, like other hotels do. That's about it in the complaints dept.
