My stay here was a very pleasurable experience. The staff was extremely helpful and polite and went out of their way to make you comfortable. Room was immaculate and clean and was cozy. If you are in this area, I would highly recommend a stay here and the area is quiet and very close to the places you need to... More

The New Lantern Motel is just a few miles from St. Bonaventure University outside Olean, NY. The motel is on the opposite side of the interstate from Olean. As such, it is on a very quiet stretch of highway. The rooms, albeit postage-size, are quite clean. The NY taxes are quite high. Add $30 onto the price of the $90... More

My family was here for 1week visiting other family members. The rooms are newly remodled. It is quiet and we did not have any problems with noise from other guests. The bathroom and closet are spacious and the rooms have storage also. We will definitely be back next year.

I have stayed here before and thought what a nice new place. I suggested some things they needed for this new hotel, well these are the things that they do not have. No hair dryer. Only 2 towels for bath. No Wi Fi, but they always claim it's down. They turn heat off to save money, which is fine but... More

I am sorry about your latest stay. We do have wifi and is working. As far as not having heat on it was 75 degrees that day and turned back on when temps went below 70. This is a small motel with the lowest prices in the area and we try to save money any way possible. I have spent... More

Our room was clean, newly renovated and attractive but small. It had a microwave and fridge but no coffee maker. Bed was very comfortable but walls were thin (could hear neighbors). Disappointed that they didn't tell us when we called to make reservations that there was an additional charge for using a credit card. Stayed here to save a little... More

Great little motel on the outskirts of Olean, NY. Super clean, newly remodeled and done very simple and tasteful. It was the perfect place to spend the night when attending a family function in town. We told our family how nice it was so when others were visiting from out of town they would know it was an option, and... More

We needed a place to stay in the Olean area on short notice due to a death in our family. Unfortunately for us it was also Family Weekend at St Bonaventure and most lodging in the area had been booked for months. We had almost given up any hope of staying nearby but, even though typically a motel would not... More

Old motel with a great remodel. The room was very small but no problem for me. New flat screen with cable stations galore. Bathroom was very spacious. Room was very clean! I had a very good nights sleep. Nice bed and pillows. $62 with tax. Best deal in town. I'd stay there again.
