We stayed while visiting friends in the area. It is located halfway between Niagara Falls and Niagara on the Lake. Great since we were visiting both places. Held true to the reviews. Dated but clean. The best part is the balcony and the view. I had never seen a canal before and to watch the HUGE ships come thru the... More

This motel is located just 10 minutes away from Niagara Falls. We stayed there to attend a wedding in Thorald. The area had been experiencing unusually high temperatures so the aire conditioning unit was working so hard to cool our room. We requested fans from the front desk and they were happy to oblige. That helped somewhat. This property is... More

Parking good. Staff nice. Hotel and room very, very old. Clean, I think, but with the age of the place, hard to tell. I had to pull up a chair to access the air conditioning in the closet area. It was confusing to operate. Great view of ships in the lock, very entertaining. Bed was comfortable but still can not... More

Some friends of ours said that this Inn was a great place to stay for day trips around the Niagara Peninsula. It was very true, and quite convenient. Three floors of rooms overlooking lock 7 of the Welland Canal give you a great view of the operation of the lock and the huge freighters that ply the Great Lakes. If... More

The sat nav brought us up a dirt road which led to the road next to the lock, not the best of beginnings! Check in was quick and painless. Accessed our room through a general metal door and concrete stairwell. The room was clean, but..... the fridge must have been from the 1970's, the plastic wrap was still left on... More

We stayed at the Inn for a wedding in a group of rooms. The locks were really neat to see and there was breakfast at the hotel. The manager was really nice and overall we really enjoyed our stay with family.

Very simple inn.. All the necessities nothing extra. Very clean and easy check in. Ear plugs may be helpful as the air conditioner is quite loud but not bad. The view was awesome, my kids loved seeing the ships come through. Love the free parking and breakfast. Friendly. Overall a good stay.

The front desk staff person was very attentive and friendly, however the room left a lot to be desired. The beds were not comfortable, the box springs were noisy, and they were sitting on metal bedframes. The noisy air conditioner couldn't keep up with the very hot day...fortunately we brought ear plugs. It was clean, so it is obvious they... More

My family and I (me plus husband and two kids ages 9 and 11) checked in after a dance competition nearby. We were early and the room wasn't ready but the owner told us he would speak to housekeeping to make it ready straight away. We popped out for a quick lunch and returned and everything was great! Room was... More

We spent a night at the Inn while visiting wine country and friends in Niagara. The Inn is located in a good position to view the large ships moving through the locks to and fro Lake Erie and Lake Ontario through the Welland Canal. We found the room clean and quiet but the whole hotel needs some upgrades to match... More
