“Great Place for the Price”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

Stayed there for a night in July. Although it's small & very basic, it was very clean & comfortable. Staff was very friendly, and the free continental breakfast was good (simple, but good).
Pros: bath towels can double as sandpaper
Cons: Very difficult to get out of bed because is was so comfortable

The worst sleep ever. Bed had a plastic sheet under the bed and the Air Conditioner was very loud. Price wasn't the best but we were on the motorcycles travelling so we stayed here. Not the best value. I wondererd why they used plastic sheet in the bed. Every times I turned over to hear plastic noise.

Room Tip: Small room..You can park your car or motorcycle right infront of your room.

I have stayed in a lot of different places and I take a lot of road trips. This was not bad for the price. They also took my AARP discount. I have to be back in the area in a few weeks and will be staying there again.

My husband is in the Military and has been for 23 years, we have travel all over the country and world. I can honestly say I have never stayed in a hotel worse than the Scottish Inns. To get started upon arrival they didn't have the room promised when I booked the reservation. We still took the room offered, however we quickly regretted it. Upon entering the room it was 89 degrees, with just a small air conditioner in the back of the room. When you sit on the bed you sink in, due to the fact that the mattresses are just foam! We had a room with two full size beds. the bed to the back of the room is 23 inches from the wall, and at the end of the bed they have hung a clothes rack on the wall at head hight. With which I damn near knocked myself out cold with, while getting out of bed to use the rest room! The bathroom is very tiny with a small shower stall, that the door doesn't close tight on and leaks water. The bottom of the shower is BLACK with filth. The toilet is so close to the wall you must turn a bit not to hit the toilet paper holder. The room does have a small fridge and microwave which is located on a stand wedged in beside the first bed. The rubber seal of the Fridge is COVERED in mold, which is why we slept in the second bed, so not to have to beath mold fumes all night! If it had been possible we would have checked out upon arrival and gone somewhere else, but due to there being an orientaion at the college and no other vacancies at other local hotels we had to stay. But I promise, it will be our last stay with them in that filthy, broken down place!

Room Tip: Go to another HOTEL, Please!

The owner is very nice and the place is clean . For $70 for a double you can't go wrong if you need a place to sleep. Internet is included, shower is good, towels a bit thin but you get what you pay for. You should bring your own shampoo/conditioner.

This is a very nice lil' Inn and the prices are more than resonable. The beds are comfortable, showers warm, and the owners very friendly. Great area for fishing and many outdoor activities including but not limited to: camping, hiking, rafting and hunting as well. Potsdam also has a great bar scene, skiing in the winter, and many great lil shops and restaurants.
