We enjoyed walking over to Maxfields for drinks one night and we had a nice lunch at First Crush. Everyone we meet was super nice.

Fire alarm went off about 10:30PM forcing everbody out into the freezing cold for 30 minutes. But staff responded well providing modest breakfast gratis. Property was nice but dated.

Quick Trip to Potsdam
The Clarkson Inn is our "go to" place to stay in Potsdam. Nice, clean, comfortable rooms. Great staff and a nice lobby for reading and enjoying a snack or coffee in the morning.

The Clarkson Inn, Potsdam
Quiet, peaceful lobby and breakfast area. No music, no TV noise. Wish more places would do that. Breakfast is not free, but it is a great deal with real food. Excellent location.
