The female Front Desk employee was very disrespectful and wrongly assumed that because we were a group of friends under 25 that we would be loud and cause trouble. She followed us as we explored the hotel when we first arrived and also followed us to the pool area and watched over us. She demanded a damage deposit and insisted... More

I cannot stress enough how much you shouldn't stay at this hotel. We booked it through Priceline (which turned out to be a huge mistake even though we have never had an issue with them in the past) 2 days before arriving. When we got there the staff was fine, and we went to our room. Our room turned out... More

We checked in, this was likely the best part of our visit. It was the first time we had ever been giving a contract when checking into a hotel, that we wouldn't cook anywhere on the property, not that this was our intent, as the rooms didn't have any such facilities. We had a member of our party in a... More

Reserved 2 nights MONTHS in advance. After started travel, received VoiceMail that they were 'undergoing renovations.' Renovations are generally scheduled well in advance. Why was I not notified sooner than 3 days before arrival - if it was an actual emergency, why not call it that? Would have understood. Also, said they tried to email me, but never received.

Wanted to take family to New Years Eve in Niagara Falls, experience the annual outdoor concert, etc. Found the Econo Lodge By the Falls online, with great prices, and located right at the top of Clifton Hill (the touristy district). Booked online, for two nights. The room had a bit of a 1970s decor, and the shower's ceramic tiles looked... More

It really can't get any more basic than this. But if you like to be right in the center of the (somewhat tacky) action of Niagara Falls and walking distance to the Falls, and don't mind the outdated, grany-five channel-TV type Motel feeling with really nothing other than friendly staff/reception, this is for you!

Stayed here 20 years ago, not much has changed - literally! Hot tub is out of order and covered over permanently closed. This place needs a major update and cleaning. Our toilet didn't flush and as we found out in the morning, the shower didn't work either. When mentioned to the staff at checkout, no apology and not a hint... More

If you want to save money and don't mind an older hotel with dated furnishings that is clean this is the spot. I stayed here on points with wife and kids. It is right in the middle of the action on the strip. Free parking and walking was the ticket.

We didn't want to spend more than $200 for a night on a Sat and wanted to be able to walk to the falls and enjoy clifton hill with the kids. This place did that for us. It looks a bit run down but the staff was super nice, the room was a bit dated but had everything you needed.... More

The first thing you notice when you step into the hotel is the smell. The stench is everywhere in the building including your room! Its obvious people have been smoking there. The next thing that I noticed was the room was not properly cleaned. People left their underwear and coke bottles in the room and the staff did not pick... More
