“Save your money and book a different hotel”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

I have stayed at many budget hotels, and whatever the price paid, I do expect that as a minimum both the hotel and my room should at least be clean - this was not the case at this hotel. The front of the hotel is apparently undergoing some renovation, meaning that plaster and cement was lying around on the car park from where it had come off of the wall. There were bags of cement lying around outside reception, next to the filthy dirty swimming pool. Although the room appeared to look fairly clean, there was a musty smell, with stained carpets and cigarette burns in the furniture, even though this is a totally non-smoking hotel. There were several large family groups that appeared to be new immigrants to Canada, so maybe the local government is using this hotel as emergency accommodation for new arrivals? They certainly appeared to be happy with their stay, sitting around on the floor of the car park eating a picnic meal - I was not happy. No drinks making facilities in the room, and the vending machines at the reception were completely empty so there was no way of getting any food or drink at the hotel. Even though the rate was extremely cheap, it was a prepaid rate meaning that I paid for nothing at all and ended up staying at a much more expensive (but worth every penny) hotel nearer the centre of town. The description also does not make it clear that this hotel is situated in a 'rather tired' residential area of Niagara Falls, meaning a walk of 20 minutes or so each way to the river and attractions that this lovely town has to offer.

O.M.G Clean newly decorated walls, fresh smelling and bright, staff friendly. polite and under standing... I stayed here in 2010 and it was much more basic drab not so pleasant, but had bad management, this visit was An eye opener, they obviously had a re-vamp, and the new manager must be doing something wright. they have spent time and thought in to customers needs
its not the Ritz. or Sherrington or Hilton. But a respectable tidy motel- Hotel home from home.
free Wi-Fi. I spoke to manager who tells me that new furniture and beds are being installed in may with flat screen T.Vs. that will defiantly put it in my top 10 hotels in Niagara falls. Leant of attractions and falls and restaurants in a 5 min walk. And a very large out side pool in hotel. Will defiantly be back in summer for that. forget old bad reports come see for your self..

Im a twenty year old, who spent a night here with my boyfriend and 2 other couples for NYE 2013.
Im okay to spend a night in a bad hotel, but this was something else.

When we first got there, and first checked out our friend's room, it had a horrible smell. Like something had been or still was rotting in the room and definetly someone was smoking in there. The light fixture was broken and sitting on the dresser and there were stains on the sheets. The beds werent in place. And the furniture had been scattered. VERY dirty! It looked like a murder scene.

Our room smelled okay, but the whole room was dirty. The mirror was filthy. There were hairs on the toilet. The tub was stained and rusted. When we checked out the bed, there were stains of god knows what on the sheets....

As sketchy as it may look outside, its exactly just as sketchy inside. I would NOT reconmend this hotel to anyone. It was terrible!

I spend a long weekend at the Red carpet with my grandson. At first arrival, looking from outside, we were not sure, but it happens that the inside was perfect and clean, the bed comfortables for a good value. The staff welcome you with a smile and are more than helpfull to make your stay comfortable.
The place is convenient on the exit of road 420, so easy to find and easy to leave from. It is also not more than 15 minutes walk to the top part of the famous Clifton Hill Street where most of the activities are. So, if you want, you don't have top look for a parking, you can leave the car at the Hotel.
For us, we bought the 4 water falls activities who included the 4 colors WEGO Bus who drop you at all sites, at your convenience, from 9am up to late for some.

Room Tip: We choose the back section for the quietness

The room was great for the night. Very clean room. Beds were comfy enough. Room had a phone, television, mini fridge and free WiFi. Iron and ironing board as well as a hair dryer. Not far from the hustle and bustle but far enough to be quiet at night. Very accomodating and wonderful staff, that were available for anything you needed.

Room Tip: Stairs to reach 2nd level, should request main floor if mobility is an issue.

The Rooms are very basic, Bedroom with no tea or coffee facility and no fridge as it said when booked, TV worked OK. The shower worked well, There was an hair dryer plus iron and irining board, The room did have AC but was not used so dont know if it worked.

We stayed 15th to 20th Sept 2012, I went to reception at 1.15pm and was told check in was 3pm as room was being cleaned ? Rooms were never cleaned while I was there and never saw a cleaner. I never saw more than 10 rooms being used, Maybe they use the same room over and over.

No maid service, Beds and towels were not changed, The day before we left I called into the office and was told thet guests said they did not want to be disturbed so they did not clean unless they were asked. I was given clean towels over the counter.

The decor in the room had been repainted at somepoint but had not been done well.

It was a cheap Motel style inn and if you expect a 5 star job stay away. We only slept in it as we were out from morning to bedtime so was ok. If you stay or pop back throughout the day this Inn might not be for you.

Room Tip: I dont think there was any rooms that had anything to single them out.

We arrived without a reservation and the hotel was one of the few economic alternatives that were in the area. We stayed two night to visit Niagara Falls Canada side. The hotel and its furnishings are old. Not clean and they smell of cigarettes in their rooms. One of the advantages is that it is a short distance from the falls. Overall a resolve but do not recommend it. I understand that for the same price you can get better at another location in this area.
