This was our 5th stay at the Old Library over the past few years. My wife and I always enjoy our stay at this comfortable and charming inn. Spotlessly clean, friendly staff and a breakfast made to order are the things that draw us back when ever we are in the area. Has the feel of being a guest in... More

Tried this B & B recently, and it was a very nice surprise! The inn has beautiful hardwood floors and staircases, along with new-looking carpeting upstairs. The room was a good value, and they serve a "made-to-order" breakfast with great choices.... The food was excellent and plenty of it... Will definitely stay in again when in the Olean area.

Great location at the heart of the town, yet not crowded. Exudes old world charm. Each room has a character of its own. Personalized breakfast at the long table is hard to get by nowadays. Overall a very satisfying experience.

My wife and I recently spent a couple nights at the Old Library B&B (in two different rooms). From the first call to make the reservation to check-out, the staff at the Old Library were exceptionally friendly - always going above and beyond. The house is charming and comfy, but it's important to remember it is an old house. The... More

For about the same, you can have charm, comfort, cleanliness and a great breakfast with friendly chat-in the middle of town, across from a park and close to some good places to eat. The Inn is actually next to the library and has a small sign that can be hard to spot on the first trip.

Olean would have just been another town name on an exit sign along the interstate if it weren't for my car breaking down. So the misfortune of car trouble requiring an overnight back in 2012, led to this wonderful find, and the root of our mini vacation this June, 2013. When I described the place to my wife during my...

I had my wedding reception at the Old Library Events, next door to the Old Library Bed and Breakfast. It was wonderful to have the Bed and Breakfast next door, especially when we were getting ready and after the reception. The staff was gracious and were more than happy to accommodate myself and my family. They made us an excellent... More

The bed and breakfast is located in a very old house. If you are expecting the Ritz Carlton then do not stay here, but if you are looking for a very nice bed and breakfast this is a good place. We stayed for three nights and enjoyed every minute. The staff was super friendly and very accommodating. Breakfast was cooked... More

It has been a few years since my first review and we are just finishing up our stay. I wanted to take a minute to mention that they have addressed all of the points in my first review. The bathroom (same room) is now bright and has two outlets. The bedding is luxurious and even the purple carpet on the... More
