I headed north to ski and was delighted to find a last minute reasonable room within 20 miles of Ellicottville, NY. The bed was very comfortable and most importantly it was on the main road heading east from Holiday Valley resort. Retuning back to the hotel tired, I forgot to turn off all of my car lights so I awoke...

We arrived at the New Lantern on a cold snowy night after a long drive. We chose it because we need a traditional (park in front of the room) motel to be able to plug in an engine heater on really cold nights. New Lantern was great. The on-site manager was nice and very helpful. The owner gave us an...

I always prefer Mom and Pop type motels over chains. So, I was happy to find info. about this place online and in the AAA Tour Guide for NY State. The price is reasonable.

The facility was amazing for a motel - it looked more like a 3-4 star hotel facility than your typical motel, and the proprietor was remarkably friendly and helpful given that I arrived at 1 AM. Overall - everything looked new and freshly painted, the room was spacious, and the bathroom was spotless. Only complaint is that the WiFi code...

The New Lantern Motel is just a few miles from St. Bonaventure University outside Olean, NY. The motel is on the opposite side of the interstate from Olean. As such, it is on a very quiet stretch of highway. The rooms, albeit postage-size, are quite clean. The NY taxes are quite high. Add $30 onto the price of the $90...
