I wasn't sure what to expect based on the reviews. Our family had a great breakfast at the Inn. Very nice atmosphere in the historic building, we had made reservations in advance. Great selection on the menu and very reasonable pricing. We had a variety of meals from omelettes to eggs Benedict and croissant with eggs. Home fries were great... More

We stayed here in June in one of their standard rooms ($105). Never again. The room was very small and barely able to walk around the twin beds and difficult finding space for our 2 pieces of luggage.. The bathroom was maybe 3' x 3'. There's no cell service, wi-fi, coffee or TV in the room. There's no elevator, so... More

This inn is beautiful (outside) and situated by the Middle Falls in the park. The park, the 3 falls and the gorge are awesome. To be fair, Glen Iris has been operating as an inn in the park since 1914, so it is OLD. However, staying here was the pits. We had a standard room for $105 (in May) with... More

Make a stop at the Glen Iris Inn for drinks on the porch and dinner. We hosted a small family reunion there and were delighted with both the service and the food. All the staff were extremely accommodating to our group which included one member in a wheelchair. Even though we had a reservation they allowed us to overshoot our... More

We stayed at this beautiful inn while we enjoyed hiking in Letchworth State Park. Our room was cozy and well appointed, the food at the Inn restaurant was simple fare, huge portions and delicious . What was spectacular was the view of the middle falls and the surrounding gorges! A must see and stay!

Love the Glen Iris. Great view of the falls and great atmosphere. Wonderful lady in the gift shop by the name of Millie. She helped us with our selections and gave us a menu so we could eat on the porch while enjoying the great WNY weather. She had such a vast knowledge of the area too. Toni from the... More

WARNING: No cell service or wifi anywhere near the Inn. Don't even ask because staff members will give you an attitude. The whole Inn is very outdated but the food in the restaurant was good. We covered most of the park hiking in one day and left the Inn a day early. The park was beautiful!

I would suggest not eating here. If you do don't get a steak. My wife and I both had the strip steak. It had no flavor. There was two other couples that got the same thing. And they were not pleased either. One couple sent their steak back. And the service was not that great either.
