Ok for the pricePosted Dec 2, 2013
Pros: Reasonably priced
Cons: Better snow removal
The hotel is relatively inexpensive and is what I expected in this price range. I've stayed here before, and it was a similar experience. About the only downside was that it snowed while I was there and the parking lot wasn't very well cleared, as it was, I fell trying to clear off my car. Not a big deal but there was quite a bit of ice under the snow.

Clean, small roomsPosted Sep 17, 2013
Pros: Clean, comfortable. They have installed digital receivers so valuable desk space in such a small room was not taken up.
Cons: Breakfast buffet.
Few clients during our stay. We were just passing through. Small room, very clean and comfortable, good shower. These to my mind determine whether a motel is good or not, and the answer is "yes." Free WiFi. It's a bit out of town so you have to use your car to get into Potsdam. We passed on the breakfast buffet which was minimal.

Good price, decent hotelPosted Sep 15, 2013
The hotel rooms are small but clean, beds comfortable and you can't beat the price. Close to Clarkson University, we'll stay there when visiting our son.

The room had a small refrigerator,a microwave,television with many channels,table and chair,ironing board w/iron,comfy bed,and air conditioning unit which is a big plus. Staff was courteous and kind. Bathroom was fine.

Friendly, helpful owners, cute, cozy rooms.Posted Aug 13, 2013
This hotel had cute, cozy, comfortable rooms. They felt very clean. The owners live on site, and they are always there to make sure everything is going well for you. Unfortunately, the room I was first assigned smelled like cigarette smoke, but they immediately switched me to a different room, which smelled wonderful. There are swings, picnic tables, and a barbecue outside for anyone's use. My son loved all the swings. The hotel is three minutes away from Walmart, and five minutes away from Clarkson University and downtown Potsdam. My only complaint is that the boxsprings of the beds were squeaky. All in all, a wonderful, inexpensive, cozy place to stay, much cheaper and better than just about any place around.

Best deal we found on our tripPosted Jul 27, 2013
Location: The motel is close to Potsdam village and to a Walmart. Dining at all levels, as well as shopping, is conveniently available in the village.
Our room was clean, well maintained and equipped with microwave and refrigerator.. Internet connection was a little slow but free. Also free was not only local but also long distance telephone. The dresser, nightstand and desk were generously sized, and the tops available as the flat screen TV was wall mounted. The only downside was the size. The furniture filled the room, leaving only narrow corridors. At $40 per night less than comparable rooms elsewhere, we could manage. The management was a family whom we found to be friendly, courteous and helpful.. The park like grounds, complete with a settee swing, added to the attractiveness of the setting.

road wearyPosted Apr 19, 2013
Pros: location, customer service, ease of internet connection, room comfort
Cons: odd shower angle
Location: route 11...minutes from both Potsdam AND Canton...not too far from Watertown and Malone.
This place is , without a doubt, the BEST dollar for dollar value. I am a business traveler and Scottish Inn Potsdam absoultley exceeded my expectations. I will stay there again and again

OK if it's on your route.Posted Apr 5, 2013
Pros: It was en-route.
Cons: Very small room.
Location: On a main route through the state.
If you're looking for a quick stop this place will suffice but there are probably other hotels that may be a better choice. It was OK, but nothing special. The room was very tiny and we were awakened at 5 am by the sound of the young kids next door banging on the walls and jumping on the bed. Breakfast was minimal but you could still get a coffee and a danish.
