“Best Value in Niagara”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

This is absolutely the best value in Niagara, period. The hospitality and helpfulness of the staff is unmatched! They were extremely knowledgeable about the area and provided us with several key tips to enhance our experience. Our room was immaculate and beautifully themed like a cottage in Bulgaria. The Motel is located within a few miles of the falls with bus transport available.I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone looking to see the falls.

We stayed as a couple at the rex motel for two nights and had a great stay.
The staff are very friendly and eager to help, the rooms are clean and ours was newly refurbished.

The location is a few miles away from the actual falls but there is parking if you have a car or the bus stops right outside or as we did you can walk without much effort. The motel also has a few restaurants and a 7/11 in the immediate vicinity as well as a very good vietnamese restaurant not far away on dunn street.

The price we paid for the room would have just covered a budget hotel/motel near the falls and having looked at a few the rex motel offers much better value for money in my opinion.

Great stay would highly recommend if you arent staying in a room with a view.

The reception staff is amongst the friendliest and hospitable I have encountered. The rooms are clean and newly renovated. You can back up your car literally to feet from your room door so unloading/loading is a snap. The room was modestly priced and a good value for budget lodging. Seems to be a well run motel.

I would not by any stretch say this is the best lodging in Niagara Falls. Couple of observations to pass on to the forum. All room face McLeod Road and it gets noisy starting 6 am, you will definitely hear the delivery bigger trucks on the road. There is only one lock on the door, no deadbolt or chain. No phone in room. The motel is 1-2 miles from the central attractions. It is close to a grocery store, an A&W fast food place and a gas station.

Stayed for one night with my girlfriend. The care and precision taken in every aspect of the room is mind blowing. It is a motel, yes. But I would take a room here over ANY mid-tier hotel, and it costs considerably less. As far as I'm considered, next time I'm in Niagara Falls, I will either spend big bucks on a fancy hotel, or stay at the Rex. And considering the price difference, it will probably almost always be the second option. My girlfriend loved it! There is parking and a mini fridge, and the Wifi worked perfectly. Will definitely go back next time, cannot say enough good things about this place. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We had the mediterranean, it was fabulous.

This place is perfect if you are planning to visit the falls with a limited budget.
It has the basics that you need for your comfort:
1- Close to the falls (15 minutes walk or 5 minutes' drive)
2- Clean and well taken care of
3- Friendly owners who are always around to help and provide suggestions and directions
4- Excellent price
5- Free WiFi connection (Not the best coverage if you are on the other side of the motel)

We stayed there for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom' apartment that offers a fridge, a microwave and a coffee machine.

Stay at The Rex and save your money for attractions and activities around the falls!

Stayed August 2013

(Review from a 20 year old female) When pulling up to the motel, I was shocked, I thought I booked the wrong place! (Because of the outside appearance) - but don't judge the book by it's cover! Step inside and it is such a BEAUTIFUL place with a great homie feeling, I was pleasantly surprised! The receptionist is great, she was very helpful, very nice, and loves to chat! Highly recommend stay here also because of the amazing affordable price! The one and only downside is that it's quite a walk to the falls and main strip, but you can always drive and park at the casino for only $5 for the whole day! Hope this review helped :)

Stayed there for one night last June on a quick visit to see the falls. When we arrived, the owner was just cleaning rooms, so we got to choose. We saw that each room was decorated with a different theme. For example, there was the Medieval room, the Paris room, and we chose the Mediterranean room. The room was clean, comfortable, and had free wifi. The owner was very friendly and helpful, by suggesting places to visit and cheap places to park. The main attractions are about a 10 minute drive. We probably could have walked it, but it happened to be raining that day. We took a taxi back into town that evening, and that also was fairly hassle free. So all-in-all, I would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay when visiting Niagara Falls for excellent value, and one of the nicest motels I've stayed in.
