We've stayed at the Inn a number of times over the past eight years when our son and daughter were attending Colgate. The staff is excellent and the Inn is beautiful and charming. During one stay I had a bed that I found uncomfortable, and the manager told me it was one of the last rooms to be upgraded to...

We spent a cold winter's night at the Colgate Inn and found it warm, comfortable and well run. The rooms had nice amenities and the food and service in the restaurant was very good. Old fashioned comfort in an out of the way place.

Wonderful, small 40 room inn that has been beautifully renovated throughout. Cozy bar area with huge stone fireplace, and elegant dining room. Rooms are perfectly appointed with everything your want in your own home. Difficult to get rooms on busy weekends, but worth the wait.

We were running late on a super snowy cold night. We called ahead and we're able to place a dinner order to be waiting for us before the kitchen closed, per the front desk clerk (Erica's) great idea. The room was comfy and warm (but small). Breakfast was good and served quickly. Portions are huge and moderately priced. Great launching...

Lovely staff, accommodating of family and even dog, cozy and warm. We were extremely impressed by how curtious the staff was both in the hotel and tavern. Our only suggestion would be to 1. improve wifi connection. It was extremely weak. 2. Also, our toilet did not flush well so we had to go to the lobby to use the...

Very nice king size bed, jacuzzi in a small bath tub, goofy non digital alarm clock, extraordinary dinner and breakfast menu, lots of old shiny wood. What a quaint mix. It is what is it, a comfortable inn a small college town. Very quiet. I could not turn the television on, but who watches TV in places like these. Ok.

We had the opportunity to be in Hamilton, NY again and decided we would go to dinner at the Colgate Inn. Service was very good, food was delicious and even our two grand boys loved it. When grand kids love a place, you can count on that being a good review. This was like our third meal there and I...

I recently stayed at the Colgate Inn and it was absolutley perfect. Everyone from the front desk to the restaurant/ bar could not have been nicer and more hospitable. The inn was all decorated for the holiday season and it was lovely. There was a pretty good snowstorm while I was there that seemed to make the entire town look...

We recently stayed at the Inn while visiting our daughter at Colgate. Other than the location, I was not impressed. The building had a musty odor throughout and I thought the bed was going to fall apart every time you touched it. We had a minor incident that the staff quickly dismissed as a mistake; I'm not so sure. At...

There isn't a lot going on in Hamilton, especially if you aren't a student at the local university, but the Colgate Inn is a destination unto itself. It is a heritage building that underwent a multimillion dollar renovation, and stayed faithful to many of the original design features. There is wide-plank flooring in the bar (which always has an excellent...
