I concur with the other positive reviews I see here. I'd never stayed with this brand before and did not know what to expect, and I was pleasantly delighted. This is a small family owned property where my first experience was not that of being checked-in, but more like I was being welcomed into a friend's home. Room was quite...

This unassuming jewel provides a clean and comfortable room. They offer a lovely little continental style breakfast and the recent improvements to the property show that the (fabulous!) owners are investing in the place to make it nice. The location is close to Potsdam and Canton. Best of all, the place boasts LOTS of security cameras. I felt very safe...

Whatever brings you to Potsdam, consider this location- it is close to everything, reasonably priced and has sweet and courteous staff. Clean rooms /bathrooms. It also offers a small breakfast. I will definitely return to the Scottish Inns.

We have stayed at the Scottish Inns on two separate occasions and I am sure even more in the future since our daughter is a student at Clarkson. We enjoy the close location to school and the fact that we are able to bring our little dog. We have found the hotel to be clean, neat and tidy. This is...

The room was a little smaller than I thought it would be from looking at photos on-line. It was a good value for the price, very clean and comfortable. The staff was accommodating, the manager even offered to make coffee for my wife one night.The location is good. It's only about ten minutes from downtown and five from Clarkson University....

They say you get what you pay for. I guess that's kind of true. This is a small motel run by a young family Who do everything from managing the place to cleaning the place and servicing the rooms. My room was small but adequate, very clean, well kept and in good repair. The innkeepers were very friendly and helpful....

Came up here for a wedding. My fiancé's mom booked the place. Neither she nor I am content with the service and quality of the hotel. The bathroom door in the room that we are sharing doesn't close. We have informed the front desk multiple times that we are sleeping four in the room and yet we still get two...

Was great for just sleeping. Bed was very comfortable. Motel is old (I actually worked there as a kid about 50 years ago), but well maintained and appeared to have been remodeled. Nothing fancy, great price for what you get.

Kirit P, Owner at Scottish Inns Potsdam, responded to this review

I'm very sorry that this happened. To make a long story short, this was a big mix-up with Booking.com. I would like to fix this by offering you a free room anytime. Please call me ahead and I'll be happy to setup your room. Sincerely, Kirit
