The Saxon Inn is on the campus of Alfred University. It is where we stay when we went to tour the school and move our daughter in. Whenever we are there to watch her play soccer or other parent events, this is where we will stay. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly. They go out of their way...

I'm a horseback rider that stayed at the Saxon inn for a horse show at Alfred State. I stayed with one other family so it was four people in a room. The room was small with two beds not much bigger then a twin bed. The hotel is very close to the collage and is very convenient. The breakfast is...

Thank you for your review. The deluxe rooms are a bit small for four adults, I recommend reserving 2 rooms if you aren't comfortable with four adults in that room size. The beds are all full or queen size in all of our rooms. Hope you enjoyed the horse show at Alfred University.

We enjoyed this inn, the public space was comfortable for the evening, the front desk people were happy to chat. I love that the windows open. Would have really enjoyed queen beds instead of full size, and a couple more cereal choices at breakfast.

I took a 2-week workshop at Alfred and stayed at the Saxon Inn. The staff was great and accommodated all of my needs! Even stored my stuff for a couple of days while I flew to NYC to meet my husband over the weekend! Highly recommend it. Decor a little "quaint" but very comfortable!

Very nice building, rooms and furniture. Super clean. Excellent quality free breakfast. Very quiet, although Alfred is very quite in the summer. Very helpful staff. Convenient parking. Can't say enough! The land the inn sits on used to be tennis courts and a soccer field. This is a much better use!

I have stayed here numerous times over the past few years and have always enjoyed it. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms are clean and well maintained. I especially like the corner rooms with windows on two sides. I look forward to future stays.

A very nice 25 room inn. We had the queen fireplace suite which was quite roomy and lovely. The staff is very friendly and helpful. A continental breakfast is served in a formal dining room, and coffee is available all day. Plenty of parking. A perfect place to stay when visiting the Alfred area.

This is like a Holiday Inn or Best Western motel right in the center of Alfred. Buffet breakfast is included in the room price. The staff was very helpful and friendly and answered all my questions. Definitely the best place to stay in town.

We recently spent 4 nights at the Saxon Inn as we celebrated the wedding of a close relative. The main feeling one gets with the Saxon Inn is similar to a B&B in that the staff is very attentive and personable and the inn is gorgeous in a gorgeous setting. Naturally the rooms are hotel rooms and the breakfast is...
