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 owners are friendly and helpful. The rooms are immaculately clean, spacious and have everything a traveler could possibly need. Ice and coffee were available around...

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...

My family was here for 1week visiting other family members. The rooms are newly remodled. It is quiet and we did not have any problems with noise from other guests. The bathroom and closet are spacious and the rooms have storage also. We will definitely be back next year.
