  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We've stayed at the Scottish Inns a couple of times. Nice little motel, the facilities are up-to-date and it's kept spotlessly clean. For the price, you can't go wrong -- just keep in mind that it's only a "mom & pop" motel, not a major chain. Convenient location and one of only a few hotels located right in the village of Potsdam.

Rooms are clean but quite small. Double bed mattresses were very comfortable.
