I had sold my house, and purchased another. There were 4 days between the closings, and I had to find a short term place for my dog and I. There aren't many places that accept pets in this area, so when I found Hipwell's and it was very reasonably priced, I jumped at it. The room was small, the shower... More

The older couple running the motel are very sweet and friendly. The grounds are well kept, though the pool was empty in July. The room itself hadn't been updated in a while, but the bedding, towels and mattress all seemed new. It was very clean, which was my most important criterion. When my partner arrived, he called it "creepy" and... More

When we pulled up to the motel we were not impressed at all. It looks and actually is dilapidated. And for the price I am very disappointed, however the price was lower than any other and that and the average review swayed me to go there given that it was for a one night stay over only without any time...

At first I thought a motel we are staying at for the weekend I was thinking this is not going to work for me but to my surprise...it is so clean and they owners are really nice. The mattress is a bit lumpy and I like flat pillows but I still slept. We are only in our room to sleep... More

A traditional family run roadside motel. The rooms were clean and quiet. However, the mattresses were hard and getting lumpy. Pillows were rather thin. There was lots of hotwater and just two rather small towels and two face clothes. This is an alternative to the noisier motels in Niagara Falls where I always seem to get a room where some... More

We spent 2 nights in this wonderful Motel. The room, the scenery and the staff were all great. The staff were very courteous and very accommodating that we were able to check-in earlier than usual. The bed was very comfortable, the room very clean, and the complimentary wifi was an awesome bonus.

The Motel staff were very welcoming and accommodating as the couple at the front desk chatted with us about restaurants, stores and local events in the small community. Situated approximately 20 min away from the hectic nightlight of Niagara falls, Perfect if you just want to rest and get away from the distractions of lights and noise. Rooms were very... More
