“do'in them Red,White and Blues”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Carrol and I did our annual Red,White and Blues festival on 9/8/12.It runs Friday and Saturday but we just do the one day that has all the Bands in town.The morning monsoon was in effect but tapered off before "Gina V and the 3rd Degree Blues" played,great band.The White Inn moved them inside because of the threat of more rain.Our room was fine,it hasn't been renovated yet but was clean and comfy.The Inn is still running under split management,one for the inn and one for the restaurant and bar.Food was great we had soup(French onion for Carrol and Chicken Gumbo for me) followed by stuffed hot peppers with melted cheese and champagne during the show(1:30-3:30pm).We went down town and caught a few more Bands and drinks(they suspend open container and as long as you use your manners there is no problem with the foot patrol)then went back for dinner on the veranda.Carrol had prime rib(two thumbs up from her)and I had a strip steak(also two thumbs up)along with another bottle of champagne followed by an elevator ride.A very good visit with no snags(includes a breakfast voucher good for a choice from two featured items).We rebooked for next year 9/7/13,hope it's as good.

We had friends in town for a wedding and we wanted them stay at the White Inn. Realizing that the White Inn is under new ownership I got online to read some of the reviews and became concerned about sending them to the White Inn. Long story made short, they had a great stay and thought the place was great!

After reading some of the reviews I was a little concern with my decision to rebook a room. I have stayed here once a year for the last 5 years and was concerned about the new mangagement and the increases in room fees. When we arrived we were greeted by the nicest young lady, she did a great job in checking us in. I noticed lunchers on the porch and a newer cocktail lounge, very nice. Our room was pretty much the same but with newer mattresses, thank you. This is an old hotel and that is what makes it charming. There is breakfast included, a choice of two and our waitress was lovely. I was happy to see the changes for the good, but I do"nt think any higher increases in room charges would be a good idea.

My daughter enrolled in the local college so my husband and I decided to stay at the Inn for the weekend. Beautiful place although it is old, management is constantly renovating rooms. She gave me a quick glimpse of the new rooms (GORGEOUS.) I definetly recommend staying at this hotel. I had no trouble with any employee, they were all very very friendly and helpful. If you don't plan on staying at the hotel atleast have dinner there!!!!!!

This was our third stay at White Inn, but the first under the new management, and we were sadly disappointed. The exterior of the Inn has been improved but the rooms (at least those on the second floor) were dated and in poor repair. There were no amenities, which I would expect in a hotel that is charging me over $200/night to stay. There wasn't even coffee available in the rooms or easily available in the lobby. The most disappointing thing was the constant feel that the management was trying to nickel and dime their guests. Example: breakfast for guests was limited to two choices (previously you could order anything on the menu), more than one coffee refill cost extra and breakfast was served with one piece of dry toast. The management really needs to get their act together if they plan on staying in business. This could be a great hotel, especially since there are so few options to stay in this quaint college town. Unfortunately, I'm not sure we will be back for another stay.

all i can say this place was great,clean, friendly,very beautiful place. dinner was fantastic,dinner wait staff great,front desk help great,breakfast food great,but the breakfast wait staff were the worst.not only was there service bad but so was there attitudes,not to say they were nasty but they were not friendly,and made so many mistakes,it was like they just did not care and we were a bother. i believe this is because guests at the hotel get free breakfast and maybe many guests dont tip well or dont tip at all because it is free. i dont blame the breakfast wait staff for being discouraged if that is the reason but they should do a better job. i tipped every breakfast as i normally would 25% and still got bad service.

We stayed for two nights and our room was not cleaned. When we asked at the front desk about cleaning they said it hadn't been cleaned because we had the "do not disturb" sign on the door, which we absolutely did not. The bathroom was in serious need of a good scrubbing and replacement of broken tiles. Also the room had a musty smell to it. We like to frequent locally-owned hotels and B&B's when traveling but on our next trip to Fredonia, the chain hotels will have our business.
