I was amazed at the two floor rooms one gets at this Inn. The staff was very friendly at all points of contact. t 6 Pm there is a free snack and beverage get together. Taco night was decent. The flaw was that it was supposed to be with beer and wine but the guy with the key to the... More

My son is working in New Jersey state and I spent my annual vacation with him . I stayed with my family in Residence Inn during our visit in May 23, 2014 to Niagrafall as it is close to but away from congested area at Niagrafall. The room allocated was very specious and towards the street resulting a beautiful outside... More

This was our 3rd stay at a Residence Inn, and we were disappointed. The studio suite was much smaller than the previous ones we've stayed in. The kitchen table doubled as a desk (not very convenient!), and the pull-out couch had to be moved to open it, making the entire space a nightmare, because the couch was very close to... More

This is one of the older style Residence Inns - separate buildings with 4 or so suites in each. If you've been to one before you know exactly what to expect. If you're on the first floor there is a tad of noise from the room above - perhaps the reason they have you sign a "quiet policy" when you... More

My boyfriend and I went to Niagara Falls (late July 2014) and stayed in one of the townhouse-like suites (I think they called it a penthouse on the phone). It was so very nice and really clean and comfortable - I could move in!! We will be returning to this hotel for sure!!

I had stayed here a couple of times - once in 2001 and then again in 2010. The first time I stayed here in 2001, I recollect it was still a pretty nice property. But it seems to have deteriorated over time. I liked the general layout - the entire area consists of several two-storied building blocks, each block having... More

I would give 3.5 stars for the room, but the staff is very friendly and the pool is a nice feature in the summer so I'm bumping up to 4. The property has a bunch of small buildings with 4 or so rooms each and no elevator for 2nd floor rooms (we had our 2-year-old and quite a bit of... More

On a family trip to Niagara, we stayed at the Queen studio suite at Residence Inn. It was a wonderful stay. The room was clean and staff was very friendly. The breakfast spread was great and had a lot of options. The studio suite had a cooking option too though we didn't use it. The beds were very comfortable. I... More

We were visiting Niagara and needed a kitchen for light cooking for one of the senior members. We decided to stay in this hotel given they provide free shuttle to/from the airport until 9 PM. On way in, our flight got delayed and we couldn't take free shuttle but took a taxi to the hotel around midnight. The person at... More
