“very well decorated rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

We stayed here for one night as we had to catch the Amtrek the next morning.

The owner was very friendly and chatty. She gave us chocolates when checking in and gave us useful information about cheap taxis and walk to the falls.


The rooms were very well decorated, small details in decoration were beautiful.

The facilities in the room were adequate. The microwave, kettle and luxurious toiletries were much appreciated.

As we visited during Christmas holidays there was a beautiful poem about the holidays and more chocolates on the bed. :-)

We enjoyed our short stay in this small hidden motel.

Don't let the word "motel" scare you away from this place! My husband and I were going to be in Niagara Falls for just one night and decided to stay here, based on the overwhelming positive reviews. They are all true. The Rex Motel was exactly what we were looking for. Nothing fancy but absolutely charming and welcoming (not to mention affordable). Upon arrival (we were early) Emi met us in the parking lot and said that we could check in right away, no problem. She gave us a tour of the rooms that were available (each room has its own theme...quirky but adorable)...they were all very clean and in wonderful condition), she suggested which rooms might be quieter than others and, generally, was a wealth of knowledge. She even told us where we could park near the falls, free of charge (most lots are around $15). Our stay was brief but we were very comfortable and couldn't have been happier to have chosen The Rex Motel. When visiting Niagara, we will never stay anywhere else!

Stayed at this property while visiting friends in the area. The rooms are very, very clean and nicely decorated. Even though the property is close to the street, there was no noise from the cars. The rates are very reasonable, and the owners are really sweet. I would definitely stay here again. A lot of chain hotels could learn a lot from this very cozy place. Emi is a great hotelier.

My husband and I like to go in Rex Motel. Very clean and unique rooms. The owners make you feel like you are guest in there own house... and also the price is good. Convenient and free parking. I would not hesitate to recommend this motel to anyone wanting to visit Niagara!

We were driving with my brother from Toronto to New York. We had seen the good reviews the motel rated in tripadvisor and thought to book the night there.

The service was friendly and helpful. The rooms are unique (each one is differently decorated). And the morning surprise was tasty.

In general it was a nice overnight stay.

Stayed at rex motel for three days and from the first day we arrived the owner made it feel like home.. She advised us of the attractions in the area and of the places we could park for the cheapest rate. She allowed us to pick the room we would like to stay in from three different rooms. The bed was so comortable we had trouble getting out of bed in the morning. The rooms are kept very very clean. Even compared to some of the five star hotels we have stayed at in the past this room exceeded their quality. Will be staying here again in the future if we travel again.

My wife and I spent a few days in Niagara Falls and Toronto the week after Christmas. I booked this place because I saw all the great reviews. We were not disappointed. It's nothing fancy but exactly what we needed. Park the car right in front of your door. Rooms were a little small but clean and comfortable. The family that owns and runs this place is terrific. Just great people. Very friendly and helpful. You can tell they take great pride in their business. Simeone and his wife Emi are sweethearts. The Falls are about a 5-10 minute car ride. We took a taxi there because we new we'd be drinking at the casino. A cab ride is under $10
We would definitely stay here again. Big thumbs up.
