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

Recently spent two nights at the Inn and it was very enjoyable. The room was spacious and very clean and reasonably priced. It's true it's a bit dated but we had no complaints. The balcony is fairly small but there's plenty of room for the two chairs and table. The room has a coffee maker and small fridge but no... More

This is one of those "out of the ordinary" hotels. Each room has a balcony or patio with a great, close-up view of the Welland Canal Lock 7. The lock is so close that, with a good wind-up, I could probably get a baseball in the water from my balcony. Watch ships go up and down the locks all day... More

Inn was very nice and clean, rooms were spacious, canal views were awesome. Location was a short drive to many of the sites in the area. Neighborhood was very quite, and a nice break from all the crowds at the Falls. Rooms were dated, but in very good shape. Breakfast was very basic.

The location for viewing ships transitting the canal is excellent, but the rooms are very dated and sadly in need of major renovations. The A/C unit was the old in- window type and it was very noisy and not very effective.

Located overlooking lock 7 of the Welland Canal, you could sit on your balcony and watch the large lake freighters go through the lock. Modest accommodations, friendly reception and very helpful. Very close to the Bruce Trail and other biking and hiking opportunities. We were only there one night as we had activities planned in the area.

Polite owner and clean inn, but was not impressed with pricing for families. I booked a stay for my wife and I, but we decided to bring our young children. I told the owners this when I checked in and was charged $30 for both children. The room came with two beds, this felt like poor business practices. I've stayed... More
