“Convenient location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Average hotel but convenient location. Service was fair. We weren't exactly made to feel welcome. Also strange to check out pool towels. If there was another convenient option we'd go elsewhere next time.

Have gone for 3 yrs straight in July/Aug. Lovely place about 3 blocks from beach on Lake Erie. Nice indoor pool and hot tub. Afordable restaurants and golf a minute away. Only a 20 min. drive to Niagara-on-the-Lake or Niagara Falls which is much more beautiful than the American side.

Offers nice rooms at a reasonable rate. Staff is friendly and helpful, but a little unsure about the specials, so be patient and ask about anything you are unsure of. Ultimately, they helped us out a lot and offered some great advice on deals.

Room Tip: A nice place to stay

For the price, breakfast should be included. The room was fine, didn't use any othe the other facilities- place seemed deserted - too expensive for traveller overnight business.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

We stayed at this hotel twice last summer, and again this July. A very nice hotel, very clean rooms and comfortable beds - definitely recommended.
My rating of the restaurant is from last July. We made the mistake of thinking the breakfast was included with our room - it wasn't. We decided to eat there anyways...we waited ages for our simple breakfast. People who arrived and ordered long after us were eating their food and we were still waiting - very frustrating when you're on a long road trip and want to get underway. The food itself was awful, and fairly pricey, What a disappointment.
So, stay at the hotel, but go to Tim Horton's for breakfast!

Passing by on a family vacation, this was an excellent hotel to spend the night.
Would definitely recommend.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

While looking for a hotel in the Niagara Falls Ontario area, I noticed that this Clarion in Fort Erie, Ontario had once been a Holiday Inn. Also the Choice Privileges points charge is only 8,000 per night. It sounded too good to pass up and I booked for 2 nights which were a Saturday and Sunday. What a deal it turned out to be. The hotel is 15 miles West of Niagara Falls along the QEW highway but the little bit of extra travel saved us literally hundreds of dollars since the hotels around the falls run from $150 to $300 per night in July. The Peace Bridge to Buffalo, Ny is 10 minutes away. At this hotel, there is a very very nice pool and whirlpool. The pool is about 6 feet deep at its deep end and the water temperature was a wonderful 85 degrees. No shivering here. It opens at 6 am and closes at 11 pm. We stayed in room #463 which was spotless. Apparently it was just spruced up because there were no smears on the paint or wallpaper and the bathroom had a new tub/shower enclosure as well as being spotless.. The tub wall is about an 18" step if heigth is a concern. the water pressure nere is the best. The bedding while perhaps not new, is very comfortable . The cooling system will definitely keep you very cool if you want and come from a wall location. Therefore it is very quiet. In the room, is a refrigerator and a small sink, but this may not be true for all rooms. A restaurant is on site but we chose to eat at the Green Acres Family restaurant which is 1/4 miles from the hotel and is rated on Tripadvisor as #2 out of 54. We ate there 2 nights and it should be rated highly.It is also about 1/3 the price of food at the falls. This hotel was indeed a good deal and we will stay here on our future trips.
