Had a great time on the American side. Yes it is not like the Canadian side but for those who cannot enter Canada the American side is fine. HJ is in a great location and the price is right. It is not a 4 or 5 star hotel and it does not advertise to be one. If you are looking... More

Okay, so this hotel is in a great location to the falls. It doesn't have a view, but no hotels on the american side does, and this is just 2 blocks from the park. That's pretty much all I can say about it. The room was filthy! I don't mean just dirty, really filthy!! The tub was literally black in... More

I was very surprised by Americas side of Niagara. The Hotel looked like town... outdated and run down. But everyone was very nice, beds gave a clean place to sleep and my kids enjoyed the pool (however pool was not as heated as advertised.. maybe the temperature needs upped a notch). I would stay again if staying on America side,... More

I prebooked 3 nights through Wyndham, its corporate company. Online pics looked plain but needed just a safe and clean place to bathe and sleep. It is a very old property. Smelly and musty. Dark hallways. 2 of the 5 staff I encountered were very unfriendly, looked at me and didn't say a word. Worst experience my beddings were not... More

The parking was free and very close to the falls. The staff was very friendly and helpful with directions to the attractions we wanted to see. The rooms are very old looking and the matresses are not very comfortable. The rooms were musty smelling, but we brought our own Lysol to spray. But it was a one night stay and... More
