“It's too bad because with a good cleaning this would be a great place.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We were stuck and unprepared to stay the night. So when we arrived we were estatic to find a motel so close to the falls and attractions The owner is great! He was really nice and accommodating. The room itself was very dirty. For the price we were expecting it. It is a shame though because what a great location. Won't ever stay again, I couldn't even shower because the floors were so gross. Hope they update, would be a gem!!!

My family and I stayed here on a family vacation to Niagara Falls. For the price, we weren't expecting much, but the rooms were worse than we thought. Moldy wallpaper, dirty towels, and unclean carpets greeted us. The mattresses were rock hard and the pillows were flat. The only redeeming quality was the location, a five minute drive from the falls, and the staff, who were friendly and helpful as best as they could be. Also, the place does have WiFi.

Very good value for money. Nice room without hassles. It also has Wi-Fi in case you need internet. Owner is very helpful and accommodating. It is a quiet place away from all noise near the falls but within 5 minutes drive from the falls. It is also very close to Wonderland. You cannot ask for more.

Well if you are just looking for a cheap place to stay and want a nice friendly person to check you in then no complaints. However if cleanliness and appearance is an issue drive right past. Mold on the walls, wallpaper filthy dirty, dirt everywhere. Probably the worst room I have ever slept in but wasn't expecting much.

This was a great place to stay, especially considering that the price my girlfriend and our friends paid was unmatched by any other hotel in Niagara. It was fairly clean and the beds were made neatly, and the bathroom was not dirty. It is definitely worth the money and I would choose to stay at the Surfside Inn over many other hotels that are around the same price. But for those people who expect a super romantic luxury hotel of their dreams...wake up. Don't get me wrong, its a great place, but people need to understand that the hotel needs more people in order to make more money before it becomes a big and famous hotel.

Would have been nice if someone at sometime bothered to dust or wipe off fingerprints from the mirrors. What a dump! Goes to show you get what you pay for. A shame, too, because at onetime the Surfside was the chaming best kept secret in Niagara Falls.
