Great location, walking distance to everything you need in Glens Falls. Glens Falls is a great option for a place to stay in between Lake George and Saratoga when these places are heavily busy during the summer months. Lovely B&B, welcoming service, friendly and warm. Would definitely go back.

I am so happy that I did not listen to the old reviews and took a chance on this place. Amanda the innkeeper was an absolute doll even brought our breakfasts to the room while serving other guests. Anything that we asked of her she did and she had the perfect recommendation for dinner. FIVE stars for this UNIQUE bed and breakfast!!!!!!!!!!!!

Summer weekend

2.6 on August 20, 2015

This is our second year staying at the Glens Falls Inn while going to the races at Saratoga. We came back because the Inn is a great value and an easy shot into Saratoga. That being said, there are so many little things the GFI folks could have done to make our stay more pleasant. For example: Oil the bathroom door so it doesn't squeak so horribly. Tell us the wifi password. Turn the air conditioning up (68 is a bit frigid). Stop playing The Pina Colada Song on an infinite loop. Make up the bed. Offer plain yogurt in addition to artificially sweetened. Amanda the innkeeper stuck her head in our bedroom long enough to ask us what credit card we wanted to use to pay; other than that we never saw an innkeeper, not when we got in (admittedly, after 9 pm), any morning, or when we left. GFI is clean and pretty and reasonably comfortable (though the Adirondack Room is very noisy when people in the Saratoga Room watch TV until midnight), just not very hands on with the guests.

Very disappointing.

No hot breakfast as promised on web site. What was offered was moldy or stale. Room was very dusty.

The Glens Falls Inn is a wonderful place to stay!

The Glens Falls Inn was a wonderful place to stay. The staff is exceptional & very accommodating! The inn was clean and food was excellent. It is located where you can easily walk to most places in town. Denise, Mark & Ken were spot on with their dinner recommendations. Definitely will be returning to stay there.

Saratoga Stay

The Inn was a nice place to stay for our weekend at the Saratoga Races; convenient and not so crazy expensive as staying in Saratoga Springs. Easy to get to, pretty room, decent buffet breakfast. Would go again.

Sadly, quite a disappointment

We prefer to stay in B&Bs when we travel. On the first morning the 'continental breakfast' was nearly non-existent. There was a coffee machine and a few things in the kitchen that looked leftover from the previous day. A gentleman showed up but did not replenish the food. He never spoke to us nor acted as though he cared we were there. The second morning there was adequate food, but nothing special: some fruit, some muffins, some cereal. Bundles of clean laundry stayed in the kitchen both days. The room had weeks of dust accumulated. Fresh towels were not provided for day two. Other guests were genial, but indicated they were also disappointed.

Great stay at Glens Falls Inn

The Glens Falls Inn is a clean, beautifully appointed, quiet, stately, close to restaurants, historic inn. The owners/staff are wonderful. Visit Glens Falls NY - just so you can stay here and have this great experience (our favorite room is the "French Room)

Wonderful Weekend

This was one of the best bed-and-breakfast places we have ever stayed in. It was warm and cozy as well as historic. The staff were very accommodating and polite. The rooms were clean, beds a little bit uncomfortable although is not the way historic beds were? Short walk to town for dinner and a cozy front porch for rest and relaxation. I don't have anything bad to say about this bed-and-breakfast. I highly recommend and I would return. I was a little hesitant with the cost of the room, pleasantly surprised. It is the price that would get me going back in addition to the comforts of home. The Milton's
