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!

We enjoyed our stay at Gridley Inn very much. This was our first stay at a B&B. The hosts were friendly, rooms were very clean and comfortable. Price was very reasonable and included a 3 course breakfast, which was a culinary delight.

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.

We had the suite at the front of the house with the bay window. Beautiful room comfortable bed, very well decorated. The entire house was very well done. However they no longer serve breakfast. Too bad.

Spent two nights here, one on our way out, one back. Very clean, quiet, well kept home. Large well kept rooms, friendly and cozy! Keys were waiting for us when we arrived and cookies and snacks were set out in the living room. Though we never met the proprietors, information was left to contact if needed but wasn't required.
