    Charming venue in downtown Potsdam. Walking distance to campus. Lovely furnishings. Helpful staff. Good size rooms. Stay on the parking lot side if you can so the wandering students don't keep you up half the night.

    We have stayed at the Clarkson Inn several times and enjoy our visits. The hotel is nicely decorated and the staff is wonderful. The hotel is convenient to the colleges in Potsdam and really not that far to Canton and St. Lawrence University.
