“Charming Inn in an historic mill town on the Eric Canal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

While traveling across country, we looked for a B&B at 8:30 on a Saturday night within a reasonable distance of the New York State Thruway. Canal Side Inn in Little Falls, New York, came up. We called, and were offered a suite for $99. I explained that we were still an hour away, and the owner said, "no problem." The Inn is compromised of three suites on the upper floor of a small restaurant. We stayed in the largest (Boucase suite) and it was enormous. It felt like we had a private apartment to ourselves. There was a sleigh bed in the bedroom which featured exposed brick walls. The living room had a pullout sofa, which was adequate (although not as comfortable as the bed.) The bathroom was enormous. The only drawbacks of the Inn itself was that the lighting in the living room was poor. Also, the stairs to get up to the suite were quite steep. Not a problem for us, but could be for others. In the morning we took a stroll along the Erie Canal. There is a no-frills restaurant close by for breakfast. (Not the restaurant that is part of the Inn.) Apparently the other guests had received coupons from the Inn to eat at the restaurant for free. We were told about the restaurant but not given chits, perhaps because the owner had already given us a nice break on the price of the room since we booked at the last minute. In any event, the breakfast place was extremely inexpensive, and seemed to be a local hangout. Little Falls is an historic mill town. It is a charming place to go. What a change of pace from the chain hotels along the highway.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

Our table of 6 was warmly welcomed and seated promptly. For appetizers, the soft shell crab and calamari were especially good. Some dinners were also served with salad and soup. (I think I missed this on the menu.) My vegetable bisque was very good. Although the Caesar salad was also good, I was filling up too fast to finish it! My filet was well seasoned, properly cooked, and extremely tender. The lamb chops and salmon in cider sauce were also very well received. For the dessert, the coconut crème brulee was outstanding. Service throughout was excellent.

Room Tip: We did not overnight at the Inn.

Roomy, clean and well-appointed rooms, with a fine restaurant downstairs featuring fine French-inspired cuisine. Take a stroll around Little Falls to take in the canal and some great architecture. A nice surprise.
