My wife and I stayed at The Rex for 3 nights while we celebrated our 10th anniversary. Overall we were very satisfied with our stay.
The room was clean, beautifully decorated, and it was easy to tell that the owners really want you to have a great stay. The bed (king size) was comfortable and the sheets clean. The shower was excellent (no tub) and there was a small area between the bedroom and bathroom that doubled as the closet and kitchenette (fridge and microwave). The television worked in our room although we really didn't watch it much since we were out most of the time. We were able to park in front of our room all but one night. Check-in/out was easy and the owner really took pride in sharing any information she had about the area's restaurants, attractions, and parking. Easily the best value around ($ 75 - $ 100 /night less expensive than hotels near the falls on a long weekend.)
Really not that close to the falls tourist area. My wife and I are relatively fit but by Sunday afternoon I was spent! The WeGo buses are great but, unfortunately, there aren't any stops near the motel which meant walking (3 km to the falls) or driving and parking. Also, remember that while it's a beautiful motel it is still a motel which has been beautified by the current owners. The walls are thin so you can hear your neighbors if they speak loudly or use the plumbing.
A great place to stay. I'd return to say hi or if I was in Niagara on business but when my wife and I return with the kids we'll stay closer to the falls and Clifton Hill.
