My husband and I were here through New Year's Eve. The hotel has seen better days to be sure, however, our room was clean and comfortable and for the price, great value. Good breakfast in the morning. We will go there again .

Room was large but not updated. There was an unpleasant odor immediately when we walked into the lobby. Our room also smelled unusual. The pool was closed throughout our stay for cleaning. The staff was using bleach on the deck and stated they didn't want to sit inside with the bleach odor. The breakfast was filling, but basic. The mattresses... More

Thanks for taking the time to review our hotel on tripadvisor. I am sorry you were not able to use the pool while staying with us. The lifeguard had to close the pool for a short while to clean some debris from the pool and deck. Our pool is open from 10- am-10pm Saturday, Sunday, and 4pm-10pm Monday- Friday during... More

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
