The falls are amazing to see. Stay on the Canadian side for sure - better views and looked like a nicer area. Buy the package deal for the 4 attractions, which you can comfortably see all in one day. The package doesn't save you that much, but is totally worth it because it includes the bus and also gives you a reserved time to attend each attraction (except maid of the mist - so arrive there early). You still wait in line, but it did seem to save quite a bit of time. (The service desk at the behind the falls attraction seemed to have less lines when purchasing the package than the outdoor kiosks.). There are fireworks two nights a week. we planned our stay so we could see them - totally unneccesary. The fireworks were not impressive and they're not over the falls, but over the bridge instead. Tip: restaurants in the area are all chains with increased prices. Stay in Niagara, but take the 30 min drive to Niagara-on-the-Lake for independent restaurants of varying prices and wineries, too.
