Loved our stay. We had a king suite on the second floor. Clean! Comfortable! Beautiful interior! Great breakfast by Lisa! Amazing price! The owner called us to be sure we arrived and found everything in order. The bed was very comfortable and that is a big part of how we rate our stay.

The Old Library Inn comes. Private bedrooms, air conditioning, and cable, in the most lovely building, built in 1895. Lois, the Inn manager, was extremely accommodating and personable. We loved the made to order breakfast and the excellent service and care we received.

This is the third time I've stayed at the Old Library Bed and Breakfast and it was terrific, as always. I'll gladly continue to stay here when visiting the area. The atmosphere on the first floor is welcoming and the room I stayed in on the second floor was excellent. Although I was here on a personal visit this time,... More

I came into Olean late on a Thursday night called the number listed and within minutes Joe came and checked me in. The house is amazing, old world craftsmanship, the room was better than any local hotel you could find and breakfast the next morning was outstanding. It will always be my first choice when traveling in that area. I... More

There are pretty much no charming hotels and b&bs in Olean or environs. Except this one. The interior is spacious and fabulously in period. My room was furnished with beautiful old oak pieces and also a nice big TV and private bath. Breakfast was delicious and ample. I love old hotels, and I come up to the area every fall,... More

This was our second stay at this B&B and we really enjoyed our stay in the Major Hoops room. This inn is spotless and the beds are very comfy. The rooms are very quiet and private. Breakfast is so good. I love their LA cinnamon toast with vanilla glaze. Super bacon, too. We've already booked another trip in October. This... More
