This place had great value for the price we paid. Rooms were clean. Staff was very friendly. We needed room in Niagara Falls but hotel cancelled on us. So we stayed at the Hipwell Motel and we were very satisfied we did. Would definately stay there again.

Looks like a run down place from the outside but the interior and overall the place is clean and very comfortable. We stayed a week to watch a lacrosse tournament in St Catharines, We had two fridges, microwave and a stove top. The TV worked well. The towels were really clean for a motel. Shampoos etc were of good quality.... More

The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean as were the bedding and towels. They also had an outdoor heated pool that was very clean. This motel is an older motel that could use some refurbishing but for the price we were more then happy and would definitley stay again. Jennifer Marcov Stirling, Ontario

Stayed here a couple of nights and it got everything you can ask for a motel. Its clean and the bed doesn't destroy your back. I recommend this place if you are traveling to the area or visiting Miniwargaming.

I had sold my house, and purchased another. There were 4 days between the closings, and I had to find a short term place for my dog and I. There aren't many places that accept pets in this area, so when I found Hipwell's and it was very reasonably priced, I jumped at it. The room was small, the shower... More

The older couple running the motel are very sweet and friendly. The grounds are well kept, though the pool was empty in July. The room itself hadn't been updated in a while, but the bedding, towels and mattress all seemed new. It was very clean, which was my most important criterion. When my partner arrived, he called it "creepy" and... More

When we pulled up to the motel we were not impressed at all. It looks and actually is dilapidated. And for the price I am very disappointed, however the price was lower than any other and that and the average review swayed me to go there given that it was for a one night stay over only without any time...

A traditional family run roadside motel. The rooms were clean and quiet. However, the mattresses were hard and getting lumpy. Pillows were rather thin. There was lots of hotwater and just two rather small towels and two face clothes. This is an alternative to the noisier motels in Niagara Falls where I always seem to get a room where some... More
