Staying in Niagara Falls, NY

Can someone tell me whether it's better to stay in Niagara downtown itself or stay 10 miles away, and try find parking when I visit the falls? The hotels in downtown NIagara seem expensive, but will solve the parking problem. Would love to know if anybody has an idea of the parking in the NY area. I dont intend to go to the Canadian Side. Also, some recos on hotels will be very helpful?

Parking is $10.00 on US side in Niagara Falls State Park and also in city lots. Many people stay downtown, as they can walk to all attractions without paying multiple parking fees...

I recommend Howard Johnson at 454 Main Street as you will be walking distance to everything and they have decent rates.

Guru,

I may be wrong, but can't you park at the casino for free. It really isn't a horrible walk,. about 1/2 a mile to goat island or is it longer?

I always just eat it and pay to park on Goat island-

$10.00 includes the whole day.

Casino has video surveillance, I wouldn't recommend it. They are a sovereign nation and it may be tough to get your car back if they do something to it. They are pretty picky about stuff...

You or I as locals may try it, but I wouldn't want a tourist to get into trouble...
