“Just stay in Canada”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2005

In no way shape or form were we expecting a luxurious hotel experience by staying at the HoJo's, but it definitely shows it's age and is very dirty. It was a cheap hotel, I'll give it that much, but spend a few extra dollars and stay somewhere else....like Canada!
Besides the hotel, the area sucked. It was a dirty run down town with no place to get any decent food.
If I had to pick anything good about it - it was close to the falls and the people were generally friendly. That's it.

I don't understand where all these good reviews come from.... The good thing about the place is that it was 2 blocks from the falls and the casino, also the staff was very nice and welcoming.... But just about every hotel up there is close also...The only reason why we choose this hotel was because they accepted pets and we took our dog.....
Other than that there was hair on the bathroom floor (not just 1), dead bugs on the window, it needs a makeover----period!!!! Stains all over the floor and not to mention I don't think the air conditioning worked over 85 degrees.... We were very uncomfortable sleeping at night..... Looking back I wish we would have stayed on the canadian side (much more to do)..... Just spend the extra money to stay at a nicer place....

The hotel is nice and clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. My husband and I took the Bedore Tours, which is located at this hotel. I had booked the tour beforehand online and saved some money. The tour was fun, interesting, and well worth the money (Thanks, Brady!). By booking my stay online ahead of time, I locked into a great rate. Everything you need is close by. My husband and I really enjoyed our vacation at Niagara Falls. For a nice, economical place to saty, I recommend this hotel.
