We stayed here for the blues festival in the fall, this place is terrific. We had a room on the third floor with wall to wall windows and a balcony. We could walk to all the venues and restaurants etc. It was great. The view of the boats in the lock could not have been better. Breakfast was included and... More

We've been staying here yearly for a good number of years now when we go to Canada, and as always this has been a good place to stay. It's not fancy but it's clean, quiet, and comfortable. The inn overlooks lock 7 on the Welland canal, and the balconies are a great place to watch the ships. The location is... More

I suppose this place is ok since some people seem to really enjoy it. I found it sort of old and dingy and not well cared for, though. Interestingly, the very first thing I noticed when I entered my room was dozens of dead flies on top of the shelf next to the air conditioner, right at eye level. At... More

We have been staying 3 or 4 night each time we go to Canada and have been staying at the Inn 2 or 3 times a year since 2000. Patty and Ed are wonderful hosts, the rooms are always very clean. It is a very quite place to stay and setting on the balcony watching the big ships being raised... More

I stayed in the third floor unit on the left and had a pleasant stay with my extended family. Jennifer was a great host and nice people. Hotel is older but I wouldn't update it because it is in great shape and it adds to the charm. We watched the lock in action when we woke up and it was... More

For me, this is very good. A great place that welcomes cyclists. A very convenient place to base yourself for cycling in Niagara. A tremendous place to site on the balcony after a day of riding to watch the freighters. Will be back again!

Jennifer is a wonderful host making us feel very welcome. Room 21 is perfect for relaxing and watching the freighters. Very clean rooms but could certainly use some updating. We will certainly be back again. Very enjoyable!!

This was our second trip to the Lock 7 Inn. They offer basic amenities and a clean room. We really enjoy using the patio off the room and watching the freighters come through with a good bottle of wine from one of the local wineries. A great place and a great way to relax and enjoy ourselves. Will be back... More

This was a great room for watching ships in the Welland Canal. In side the room is very clean, but the hallways are dark and dank. The water from the air conditioners runs in the halls. The room was a bit over priced as we had to pay $10 each for our boys. The breakfast was good, having muffins, toast,... More
