The staff, especially Neil, were very helpful. The room was very nice, clean, roomy and comfortable. The hotel is older but appears to have been well maintained. Price and location were very good for the area. This is definately a place that I will stay at next time I'm in Niagara Falls.

The room was clean and a good size for our family of 5 ( 2 grandkids) Breakfast was sufficent, and restocked constantly.We certainly did not go without. The big draw ( for the kids ) was the pool. Very nice clean and... More

One of the best motels I have ever stayed in. Large rooms, equipped with almost everything. But very old fashioned TV. Good breakfast with plenty of room to have it. Very close to the Falls indeed. Friendly, helpful staff. Nice, clean and calm place.

This is definitely an old hotel. My understanding is that it was build in about 1963. It has been upgraded as you can see the water pipes in the ceiling for the fire suppression system. The room was clean and comfortable to sleep in. We were one the ground floor and could not hear any outside noise except for the... More

The only thing good about this hotel was its location. The hotel is old and very worn. Updating is badly needed. The size of the room was good but everything about the place screams for renovation. Breakfast was adequate but nothing to write home about. Very disappointing.

The hotel was clean. The staff was great. It was also within walking distance to the Falls. I would diffidently use this hotel again. I did like that hotel had a tour company downstairs in the lobby so I could book a sightseeing tour without leaving the hotel.
