Stayed here in April'15. Decent place. The room was quite good with good lighting, comfortable bed. The 2 queen beds are comfortable enough for 2 couples or family with kids. Breakfast spread was nice with some good muffins and coffee. The place does look a bit old though and could do with some renovation.

My boyfriend and I needed a place to stay for one night as we were attending a concert at the Rapids Theater. This hotel was very close to the venue - we actually walked to the concert. The hotel itself is nothing to brag about but if you need a place to sleep for one night, I would recommend it.... More

This hotel needs lots of work. Wifi needs updating. Tv and their service needs updating. The rooms need to be brought into the present day. Would not stay here again or recommend it. Glad to be only staying here one night and didn't spend much time in the room.

This was a trip with 2 grandkids to spend a few days at the Falls. We chose this hotel blindly on a travel site where you set desired parameters, press the button and get what you get. This was exciting. The location was pretty good, we could walk to the Falls, although we had to cross a couple busy streets,... More

Howard Johnson Niagara Falls, April 2015 Positives: Clean and large rooms, friendly and professional staff. Nice touches of locally grown (NY State) apples at breakfast and free local Sunday newspaper. Good to walk to both sides of the Falls. Negatives: Breakfast room does not have reusable crockery or cutlery but disposable plastic bowls, cups and cutlery etc. Hasn’t Mr Howard... More

I was disappointed when we check in. The wall paper was coming off the wall and the chair in the unit had holes in it. It is old and not maintained well.

Very close to the falls, Hard Rock Cafe and souvenir shops. Breakfast room with cereal, muffins, coffee, juice, etc. Spacious room. In room safe and small refrigerator as well as coffee station. Poor wifi connection.
