We have stayed here several time, this time a different room. Always, clean, peaceful and relaxing. Comfortable beds, area w couch and chair to stretch out in, fireplace to take the chill off. Great place right in town!

My wife and I stayed at The Gaffer the night after our wedding. The night before we were down the street at The Radisson, which wasn't bad at all, but we were looking for a more homey room that wasn't a chain hotel. The Inn at The Gaffer was exactly what we were looking for. It's located right at the... More

We saw mixed reviews and was a little concerned about our stay. We were in the Majestic room, and it was better than the pictures. Nice bed, away from street, and nice living room area. With kitchenette area. Only issue at all was connecting to wifi, not sure there antenna is tuned for 2nd floor. Would recommend for couples. Corning... More

Stayed in the Crimson suite which is on the front of the building so you get some street noise at night. Bedroom area away from the windows so that helps, but you get some street lights coming in through the blinds. Block out curtains would be helpful for a dark room to sleep in. Bedding was comfortable. Whirlpool shower was... More

Wonderful little spot in the heart of Corning. Great reception from bartender at check in, nice spacious room with all the comforts of traditional lodging properties. Bedding was particularly nice. In spite of warnings, the room and surroundings were fairly quiet for business location. No elevator - rooms on second floor and no bellman. Overall great experience - would recommend... More

Only a very limited number of rooms but this could be a really good inn and in a terrific location in the heart of the gaffer/downtown area. The rooms have all recently been renovated and, if ours is typical, in very comfortable/elegant style. But our room suggested that the place is not getting the care and attention it deserves -...

Stayed here in mid-May for two nights. It is truly an interesting place. The rooms are large and decorated in leather and dark wood. The location is over the Gaffer Grill in downtown Corning and the museums and touristy places are all within walking distance. Very comfortable. If you need anything you just have to ask the bartender who was... More

The steep metal stairs from the parking lot could be an issue for some people getting up to their rooms. The street side door is steep also and parking could be an issue getting in from there. Once inside your room you can be surprised, we stayed in the Majestic, it was spacious and well appointed. Our only gripes were... More
