Staff is very friendly. Location is fantastic. Hotel is run down, inside and out. It is a high foot traffic tourist area and the weather can be damp and snowy. It shows here. But again, I stress they are VERY nice, on the telephone and in person. The continental breakfast will help you get by until you can hit a... More

We (parents and two teenage girls) stayed at the Howard Johnson for one night on our way into Canada. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful and the location was ideal for walking to the American side of the falls, to the nearby hiking trails, and to the Canadian border. The hotel is in need of a face lift .... More

Looking for a great location on the American side with free parking and sites within walking distance...Howard Johnson is the place. It was even within walking distance to walk across the boarder versus driving, if you prefer for a day trip. As far as the hotel itself, it appears newly renovated on the outside, but the inside tells another story.... More

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
