Room was nice for the price. the owners were very nice.i left my blanket there and the next time i stayed the owner gave it back to me, It was so nice of her. It's also nice that they have free coffee in the morning.

The person that checked me in was very very nice and explained to me an issue about the room. When I made the reservation and told this lady I was traveling alone she cut me a deal on my room. The room itself at first glance was great minus the lack of accessible electrical outlets. I sat on the bed...

Friends and I were the area for a Tough Mudder and could NOT have been more pleased. The lady and daughter who run it are beyond accommodating. The rooms were sparkling clean, and I know ours had recently been renovated. Beds were comfortable, Nice Continental breakfast. Haven't a single complaint and HIGHLY recommend!

On finding the Saxon Inn full on a recent visit to the area we opted for this, a property once well-known as the Squirrel's Nest. At one time it was a reasonable place to stay for parents and others visiting Alfred, but sadly it has deteriorated to the point where I would not want to return (and I've been willing...

In all my life this was the absolute worst motel considering we paid $80 for this dump. I couldve accepted all the bad things about the room. What topped itto off was my fiance waking up to bug bites all over his face and body. It didnt have a shower head. Water kept going ice cold to scolding hot. The...

What a dump! The 1st thing I did was look for bedbugs. The room needed paint to get rid of the ground in dirt on the walls and trim. The tile ceiling was in need of replacing as it was starting to fall in and to get rid of the water stain. The floor you could have falling through if...

If newly renovated means they glued rubber baseboard to the bathtub in a lame attempt to hide the mildew and mold, then you bet its been "renovated". The place is scary inside-we found a steak in the freezer that I'm sure had thawed and spoiled as the whole room smelled bad. We bought spray to kill the smell, but when...

I stayed there recently for alumni weekend. It's not the greatest hotel but the people are very friendly. It's close to the campuses and easy to find. It's a college town with limited amenities! The Saxon isn't that much better to be honest and it's way more expensive. It's a good place to stay if you are on a budget...

This is a family owned business. The mother and daughter are very nice and attentative. However, the amenities are very poor. We had to stay in Alfred, NY for one week. The rooms are NOT newly renovated as stated in the local advertisement circulars. There are stains on the mattresses, unfinished plywood baseboards, stains in the drop ceilings. The furniture...
