Nice, convenient, a bit overpriced
Went to visit family studying at Clarkson University. The Clarkson Inn is in the middle of "downtown" Potsdam convenient to shops, restaurants, and a movie theater. It is withing walking distance of many places. The Inn is very cozy. Rooms are very well decorated and clean. We overlooked the river. Beware there is no elevator to the second floor. Not a problem but if you are carrying luggage you need to know. The lobby is really nice. We did not opt for the in house breakfast. There is a bagel place and a diner withing walking distance at much more reasonable price. I would say it was a little overpriced for the area.

Pricey hotel near Clarkson
My son and I stayed for a visit to Clarkson University. It is a good location. Hotel is comfortable but too pricey for it offers. Breakfast is not even included in $170 price. The hotel amenities are limited. There were people partying just down from our room late into the morning hours.
