My husband and I originally had hotel reservations on the CAN side of Niagara Falls, but ended up changing over to The Red Coach Inn on the USA side. A friend had told us that driving to/from each side can take a very long time, especially on holiday weekends. We didn't want to deal with that when it came time to get back to the airport so we moved. So glad we did! The Red Coach Inn was just wonderful! We stayed in one of the newer rooms (The Buckingham). The room was large and spotless. The front office manager, Amanda, showed us to our room where we had a bottle of champagne and a fruit/cheese tray waiting on us as well as Godiva chocolates. Upon departure, she gave us fresh chocolate chip cookies for our trip home. Very nice touches! The bathroom was very roomy with a large Jacuzzi tub, granite countertops and a tile floor. They even provide a black washcloth for the purpose of makeup removal, ladies! We travely quite frequently, and I have never seen this before. There is also a normal size hair dryer - not one of those little useless compact ones. The beds were very comfortable. There is also a Bose radio on the table as well as a large flat screen TV. A refrigerator and coffee maker are also included as well as robes, plenty of extra blankets/pillows and an ironing board. All rooms include breakfast in the restaurant. You can choose anything from the menu. We each tried something different each morning, and everything was delicious! The wait staff was very friendly, although the service was slow at times. The inn is right across the street from the American Rapids/Falls. You can open your window and hear the rushing water. Free parking is included in the back of the inn for guests. The trolley stops not too far in front of the hotel, so we only used our rental car to go to/from the airport and over to Lockport one day. We walked over to the CAN side one day. The Rainbow Bridge is a good walk, but easy and flat. Both the CAN and USA sides were clean and beautiful. I have heard that the USA side was filthy and run down at one time. Not so anymore. We actually enjoyed the USA side more because it wasn't as crowded. The CAN side is very commericialized - has a carnival type feel to it. But still fun! From what we could tell, all of the chain type hotels were packed with people. Since The Red Coach Inn is not very large, that was not the case for us. Very quiet all of the time. If we ever get to return to Niagara Falls, we will definitely stay here again. Do not consider staying anywhere else - pay a few extra $$ and stay at The Red Coach Inn!
