“Better than the Hilton!”
Reviewed October 5, 2009

Stayed 2-nights after a night at the Hilton not too far from the Diplomat Inn. Very friendly staff. The room with the Jacuzzi was clean, spacious, and reasonably priced. The location is close by the major attractions.

My girlfriend and I stayed here over Labor Day weekend. We just needed a place to stay and get dressed as we planned on being out on the town for the whole trip. The Diplomat was excellent. It was a short walk from everything. The showers were amazing (water pressure like that of the falls). The owner was very nice and so hospitable. We recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet place to sleep in Niagara.

I Would like to recommend this place to everyone. It has Free Parking. Rooms are clean, inventory is replenished every day. Washrooms are clean. We booked for $49.00/night. when we got there the advertised price there was $44.00/night. i don't mind paying $49.00/night for weekdays. i don't see any problem in this motel. One thing i have noticed is that their blanckets/comforters are not very clean. I would recommend bringing your own comforter set and rest is fine at this place.
i would come back as i spend most of the day outside and just go to this place to sleep.
try it youself and see that its a good place.

Me and a few of my buddies picked this place after seeing the good reviews about on this website. We booked the same day we arrived as it was a last minute, spur of the moment thing. We were basically looking for a cheap motel to go to, that wasn't an absolute dump. The Diplomat was far from a dump.

Our room was nice and tidy, and the bathroom was clean. It basically feels like any Holiday Inn/Comfort Inn etc. that I have been too, except its decorated like one from the late 80's, early 90's. But who cares, we were there to party downtown, and only really cared about how comfortable the beds were (and they were comfy!). The only complaint I have about the room, is that the lighting is very dim, making the room kind of dull. Better lights/light placement would be an easy fix to this problem, but after a few drinks, the lighting doesn't really matter anymore.

The next morning, we checked out, and they let us keep our truck parked there so we could just walk to Clifton Hills, the falls, and casino. This was nice of them, as it saved us a lot in parking.

Me and my buddies are planning on going back before it gets cold, because the night life in Niagara is really good; when we do go back, we are staying at the Diplomat.

First of all: The people running this little motel are the nicest and most helpful people, ant it meant a lot for the success of our stay here. They spontaneously helped getting tickets for some attractions at reduced prices and were always ready to help us out, give directions etc. We were happy not to stay in the Clifton Hill area (so tacky, loud and packed), but although this hotel is only a five minute walk from there it was good to get a bit away and be in a more relaxed part of town. Nice little pool, free parking, coffee machine in the lobby and a good breakfast place nearby was all we needed - and we found it here.

Air-condition was a bit loud at times, at it would have been nice to be able to open the window in the room (which was very spacy and easily accommodated all of us).

So unless you're looking for fancy casinos and modern furniture this is a great place to stay. After all we visited Niagara because of the Falls, and we could easily walk anywhere in about 10 minutes. And the room price is great - you'll end up spending lots of money visiting the sights anyway.
