I would have given an excellent but the rooms could stand a little updating. The air conditioner was far away from the bedroom. The staff was lovely and professional. The rooms and facility were very clean. I would stay there again.

Everything below could be overlooked if The White Inn had management that was friendly and customer-service oriented. Instead, management is haughty, unresponsive, and uncooperative. The White Inn has the potential to be a charming hotel, but not under the disposition of current management. Staff is mostly teenagers who have no authority to help when there is a problem.

The White Inn located in Fredonia New York is a quaint, clean, safe, pleasant place to stay. Our room was very large and comfy with a new rug and a remodeled bathroom. The AC worked very well also. Full breakfast bar was included with the room price. It has a full service restaurant and bar on the premises. Staff is... More

We stay here everytime we are in New York! We love it, always treated very well by staff and love the room we get. To those who say it is pricey, I say nay. It is an Inn in a small town and I appreciate them keeping it open. We go visit family who teach at the university and we... More

Agree completely with “Way overpriced for what you get.”. Great old building. Could be so fabulous. Staff was completely unengaged. The girls were nice when we talked to them but were very busy with their cell phones. We were able to walk to town where we went to Ellicottville Brewing Company. Food was great. Server was FABULOUS!

From what we saw of the options around the heart of Fredonia, The White Inn is probably the best, if not the only option. The lobby is charming and the exterior too has nice appeal. Our room was clean, but quite small. The restaurant has charm as well and the service was friendly, but there were many items on the... More

I love old, historic hotels. Given a choice, I'd rather stay at one - even if a little funky - over a modern chain hotel. While the price point was very high for a hotel in the middle of nowhere, I was hoping charm, atmosphere and roominess would offset the cost. Sadly, the White Inn disappoints on many levels. What...

I love the White Inn. It's a beautiful place. Clean and updated with and excellent staff. Everyone here is super nice and the place is a historical landmark of sorts. Can't say enough good things about it.our room was upgraded at no charge and we had the kind suite which was well, pretty sweet!

This was once our favorite place to stay when visiting Suny Fredonia. Our last 2 visits have been serious disappointments. The restaurant was sold to a separate entity some time ago, and the Inn no longer serves a complete breakfast as part of the rate. Now what is offered is plastic warmer coffee and mediocre bagels and bread. More than... More

As we do offer daily housekeeping service to our guests, there is no excuse as to why your room was overlooked. This has since been addressed with our housekeeping department and we thank you for bringing this to our attention.... More

Our room was an 80's/90's throwback, but the entrance to the hotel was nice, as was the restaurant downstairs. This place could easily be improved with some new window treatments and by getting rid of some of the terrible, dated wallpaper. Staff was nice and everything seemed clean. Overall I think our room was very overpriced for the way that... More
