This was a very clean place to stay. Not any elaborate furnishings but very comfortable. We had a 2 bed unit and had a microwave, fridge, phone, large tv, wifi and lots of room for clothing. Nice large dresser, desk and a wardrobe as well as 2 comfortable chairs.. The staff were very friendly and willing to help in any... More

The only good thing to say about the place, is the owners agreed to refund fully it was dirty smelled of cigarettes dusty sink with dirt of previous stays... I would not let my pets stay there. Really, do yourself a favor do not stay there.

The management is shady and know this place is a sham. Dirty from the time you drive in. Place is old but it doesn't have to be filthy. It is. Mattresses are severely stained. Dust and dirt everywhere. Electrical outlets rigged, not safe. Wasps around room entrances. Smelly rooms. Water temperature unpredictable. More burnt out bulbs then working. TVs did... More

Very nice staff and the cleanliness of the rooms was terrific. I mistakenly left my bathing suit on the back of the bathroom door hook and I called and the hotel and they offered to mail it... More

The room itself was very dirty. For the price we were expecting it. It is a shame though because what a great location.... More

My family and I stayed here on a family vacation to Niagara Falls. For the price, we weren't expecting much, but the rooms were worse than we thought. Moldy wallpaper, dirty towels, and unclean carpets greeted us. The mattresses were rock hard and the pillows were flat. The only redeeming quality was the location, a five minute drive from the...

Very good value for money. Nice room without hassles. It also has Wi-Fi in case you need internet. Owner is very helpful and accommodating. It is a quiet place away from all noise near the falls but within 5 minutes drive from the falls. It is also very close to Wonderland. You cannot ask for more.

Well if you are just looking for a cheap place to stay and want a nice friendly person to check you in then no complaints. However if cleanliness and appearance is an issue drive right past. Mold on the walls, wallpaper filthy dirty, dirt everywhere. Probably the worst room I have ever slept in but wasn't expecting much.
