“No frills but very friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

Great location, within walking distance of just about everything. They need to do some updating but it's good value and the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They were flexible on check out time and let us leave our car there after we had checked out so we could do a little more site seeing before we left. We will be going back.

The room was very outdated and the elevator did not work. I would not recommend staying here to anyone really. The location was decent, but we were not able to get any food in the hotel. We tried to bring some problems with the room to the staff's attention but they really seemed uninterested.

I stayed here for valantines weekend and for a first experience hotel it couldn't get any better rooms were clean, we had everything out for us towels, face cloths etc. loved the Jaccuzi tub. Excellent location being just around the corner from Clifton hill. It's a shame I didn't go in the summer time to use there pool but I will be sure to return

Even though you cannot beat the price, and we have stayed at the Blackstone many times over the last 15 years, we have now decided we will not go back unless some major renovations get done. The rooms are so outdated now it is a little scary. Furniture is beat up and scratched, carpets and walls are stained and worn. Bed and pillows very uncomfortable. The headboard was not even attached to the bed lol. Room is clean but feels dirty because of the dated decor. Bedding was ripped and outdated. Bathroom window frame was moldy. No shampoo just cheap bars of soap are offered. No hairdryer either. If you go you need to bring all that stuff and I would bring your own pillow and blankets lol. I am pretty sure you can smoke in all the rooms so the smell is not very pleasant either. Very small outdated TV. Well, I guess you get what you pay for. One thing that they have going for them is the good location, close to Clifton Hill, the Falls and the old casino.

I don't understand the negative blogs for the Blackstone Inn...?? We've been going there since 1997...and truthfully, the min. we saw the hotel..we knew what we were in for... Is it the most glamerous hotel?..no, but clearly you can tell that without even staying there... But the prices are fantastic...the management group is the best...the rooms are clean..and if you're not a smoker..then go somewhere else... There's tons of other hotels.. Gzzzz people...open your eyes... If you want an inexpensive place to stay..go to the Blackstone...if you're going to "fall out of bed unconcsioius"..then pay $350/night and have a great time....

i was awoken at 6:30am by a loud thud. when i got up i found my wife unconscious on the washroom floor. i called 911. while waiting for EMS my wife came around as i placed her on the bed. i noticed immediately large welts on her arms.
she said she got up because her arms were very itchy. thats all she remembers. the EMS crew inspected the bed and found a very large bed bug walking over the covers. the killed it and took it to the hospital. we found out from the doctors that if you are allergic to bed bug bites it can cause many complications.
my wife was led up in bed for 3 days from this. please, if you do stay here, check thoroughly every where.
we have always stayed at this place when ever we go to niagara and have never had a problem with bites.
it is a very affordable place and quite clean. but after this scary encounter we have to notify people about this issue and the consequences bed bug bites can cause.

We have stayed at the Blackstone for many years. The location is perfect, right at the top of Clifton hill. Rooms remodeled this year, new tv's. No phone in room but that is what we like, besides we have our cell phones. The owner is down to earth and available if needed. The price for the location is unbeatable. Rooms are clean and fresh. Great outdoor pool, serviced every day and always clear and sparkling clean. Great to sit and relax in the pool area or outside your room (especially on the second floor). Rooms are secure with double dead bolts (Not sure what another reviewer was talking about).
Trust me, you will not find a better stay anywhere at the falls for triple the price here.
