We stayed one night on our way to Niagara Falls. Check in was fine. Room was clean. The tub shower was very slippery so it was hard to shower. Free breakfast, which we did not use, looked like it consisted of toast,coffee and cereal. Bed was comfortable and room also had a refrigerator and microwave. The ice machine was empty...

We had to go to Bradford for a funeral and found the Holiday House very clean, quiet, and relaxing after a long 7 hour trip by auto. The rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and courteous. I became lost and a very wonderful staff member guided me right to the hotel....

It's an old, old vintage Holiday Inn. Room was in good condition, everything I used was in good working order. Bathroom a bit dated but functional. Continental breakfast is offered, nothing special. Bulk dispensed cereal was somewhat stale. Breads, donuts, apples, OJ, milk, coffee also offered. Those were all good. Fine for a place to spend the night if you're...

I just spent the night in NY for Seneca high stakes bingo game. This place is about a 20 miles drive from Seneca casino and bingo hall. Well worth driving the few extra miles especially if you don't want to shell out several hundred dollars to stay at the casino, and you are looking for a good bargain. At $60...

Quite a large motel, in walking distance from the Zippo factory. The condition of the rooms is alright, given the price. I had some problems with the heating but nothing serious. I would stay here again if I was to make the same trip.

I was working in the area and booked a room here for a 2 week stay. The management was very accommodating and gave me a a great rate, a clean and comfortable room on the first floor with a decent Wi-Fi connection. It's an older motel maintained in fair condition and good for someone on a budget or that doesn't...

This hotel is a great find in an area where hotels do not accept pets. Room furnishings were relatively new and clean and proprietors were friendly and ready to meet our needs. Coffee, juice, fruit and pastries were provided free of charge. A terrific bargain compared to other hotels in the area. We requested and reserved a first floor room...

I stay at this place everytime I come home to McKean County and I've never had just dramatic problems as the previous reviews. It's out in the country area so you're far removed from drunkards bumbling around the town. It's safe. It's not elegant, or luxurious, but if you're paying $50-$70 bucks, you need to have relative expectations. The rooms...

“The east side of the hotel faces US 219 and the mountains - the west side is right up against old 219. East side rooms would be better in my opinion.”
