Passing by on a family vacation, this was an excellent hotel to spend the night.
Would definitely recommend.

While looking for a hotel in the Niagara Falls Ontario area, I noticed that this Clarion in Fort Erie, Ontario had once been a Holiday Inn. Also the Choice Privileges points charge is only 8,000 per night. It sounded too good to pass up and I booked for 2 nights which were a Saturday and Sunday. What a deal it turned out to be. The hotel is 15 miles West of Niagara Falls along the QEW highway but the little bit of extra travel saved us literally hundreds of dollars since the hotels around the falls run from $150 to $300 per night in July. The Peace Bridge to Buffalo, Ny is 10 minutes away. At this hotel, there is a very very nice pool and whirlpool. The pool is about 6 feet deep at its deep end and the water temperature was a wonderful 85 degrees. No shivering here. It opens at 6 am and closes at 11 pm. We stayed in room #463 which was spotless. Apparently it was just spruced up because there were no smears on the paint or wallpaper and the bathroom had a new tub/shower enclosure as well as being spotless.. The tub wall is about an 18" step if heigth is a concern. the water pressure nere is the best. The bedding while perhaps not new, is very comfortable . The cooling system will definitely keep you very cool if you want and come from a wall location. Therefore it is very quiet. In the room, is a refrigerator and a small sink, but this may not be true for all rooms. A restaurant is on site but we chose to eat at the Green Acres Family restaurant which is 1/4 miles from the hotel and is rated on Tripadvisor as #2 out of 54. We ate there 2 nights and it should be rated highly.It is also about 1/3 the price of food at the falls. This hotel was indeed a good deal and we will stay here on our future trips.

We were in the area for a family event. Had a "family suite" at the Clarion for the very reasonable price of $149 per night. The room was huge,with a king bed in one room, and 2 queen beds in the other room. Standard hotel bathroom, plus additional small sink in the kitchenette area. The beds were comfortable and the room was quiet. There is an indoor pool and a restaurant on site. Plenty of free parking. Hotel is nice and quiet. The only negative thing I can say is that the room had not been cleaned thoroughly. We found old food in our mini-fridge and there was a pair of underwear beneath our bed. Yuck. Otherwise, great place to stay for a family. Very short drive to Niagra Falls via the very scenic drive along the river.

Don't even look anywhere else. There are such few options! Hotel is never busy, old and stale and stripped of its Holiday Inn brand-now a Clarion.
Service is friendly enough, don't expect any extras.
The rooms are usually fairly clean but extremely basic.
The restaurant is only open for 2-3 hours for early breakfast, so you will be making your way down the road to Tim Horton's or McDonald's.

Stayed here for a hockey tournament, obviously the price was jacked up for that weekend. 139 per night is a bit much, I have snagged Boston downtown hotels for less than that. But there is not many options in the area. Room was spacious, although really dated. Fairly clean, although I had a dark stain on my outer bed sheet. Fitness room was really outdated and it was right off the front lobby. We ate twice in the hotel, both times very ordinary food. Bed was all right, glad I was only there for 2 nights though. Free wifi was a bonus.

Quiet room, even though we were on the roadside; very clean; nice pool with separate dressing & shower facilities; lovely lobby reminiscent of a higher priced hotel. Really comfortable bed & pillows...and plenty of those. Coffee pot & supplies in the room & small utility sink, but no refrigerator which I would have liked to keep extra water cold. It looks like the cabinet beneath the sink would accomodate one so maybe it's just not added yet. Beverage & ice machines on each floor; unfortunately, the ice machine on the second floor wasn't working, but they did have a sign posted. When we first arrived, we discovered that the toilet wouldn't flush, called the desk & within 5 minutes, yes 5 minutes!!!, a maintenance person was knocking at the door to take care of it! I've never had anyone respond so fast to a request and the problem was a minor one, just a valve sticking. The nice young woman who checked us in, also personally brought up a map of the local area. The only thing I would have liked other than an in-room refrigerator, would be an exhaust fan for the bathroom. Didn't visit the restaurant or work out center. Historic Fort Erie is minutes away and very interesting. Hotel is 20 minutes or so from the main Falls area. We would definitely stay here again! Overall, a pleasant experience.

This is a very good place to stay near teh Niagra Falls, which are about 20 minutes away. The rates are good, unlike some of the lesser quality hotels close to the Great Falls. Plus the rooms are really comfortable and huge. The staff is courteous and responsive. Only thing is that the Breakfast is not included in the tarrif.

Room Tip: Choose one facing the front of the Hotel
