I stayed at the Gridley for the Women's March & was very impressed. The new owners are making nice improvements to a historical inn. Breakfast was delicious! I received a very warm welcome and stayed in the State Room which was very well appointed and so comfy!

Beautiful, historic B&B, with friendly, welcoming owners, lovely guest rooms, and a huge, delicious breakfast in the morning. Located right on Main St., so easy to get to any destination from their property. Looking forward to another stay.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful 2-night stay at The Gridley Inn for our visit to Seneca Falls for the It's a Wonderful Life festival. This was the first year we had to find new accommodations after the B&B we'd stayed at the last 4 years for the festival closed. We were worried the experience couldn't possibly be as...

Maddy and Steph made our stay at the Gridley very very welcoming and comfortable. Couldn't be more pleasant and accommodating! The Victorian themed rooms were very pleasant and the breakfast was definitely five star! I look forward to visiting again to see the upgrades and changes they are planning, though it was pretty perfect as is!

I was happy with the Gridley Inn. It was clean, loaded with antiques, had a comfortable bed, was quiet, had a great location and was reasonably priced. It was a terrific stop between Cleveland & Boston. Across the street there is an excellent breakfast place, West Main Diner for your breakfast pleasure.
