“Location”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

The only thing this place has going for it is the location, with a very short walk to Clifton Hill.

The room in general looked very run down, but it was relatively clean. The bedding had various suspicious stains which was kinda disgusting. Warm water was not very consistent; during the shower it varied between ice cold and extremely hot. The AC did not really have any settings other than 'extremely cold' (even though it had a knob, it did not do anything). The free Wi-Fi apparently did not cover our rooms either.

The indoor pool was OK, but nothing special. The outdoor pool was tiny, and it was basically in the middle of the parking lot.

They claimed to have free continental breakfast, but we were not able to find it anywhere; to be fair, we did not ask either, because we figured it would be bad.

On the up side, the parking was free, and we didn't have any road noise in the room.

I had wished you had told us if you had any problems with the room. Especially regarding cleanliness, as that is our number one concern. Problems with the shower could also be a bigger issue, so it is something we like to investigate. Similarly, the air conditioner should have reacted to any changes. Our Wi-Fi is password protected, so that may have been the problem. If you did have the password and still could not connect that is very problematic. We upgraded our entire wireless system in July, so there should not have been any issues with the internet.
Had you asked where the breakfast was served, we could have told you. It is unfair just to assume it "would be bad".

Ok folks, this isn't the Hilton or Fairmont, however, in a city where EVERYTHING is over-priced, it's an excellent option for no frills accommodations!

Our room on the 2nd floor was clean and tidy and thankfully ready for us when we arrived at 12:30pm.. the check-in girl (around 21 years old but didn't catch her name) was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. After a hot afternoon of walking around the kitschy Clifton Hill area we took a dip in the indoor pool and the kids loved it! Very clean and well maintained - though we didn't use the outdoor pool we checked it out and it was equally well maintained.

The owners of this hotel are obviously professionals who take great pride in keeping the grounds in good condition..

If you're looking for a clean hotel close to the action (5 mins away on foot), then look no further, unless you want to spend at least twice the price (and you'll need that money to eat at the overpriced restaurants in the area!!!)

Just returned from a 3 day trip to Niagara with family (total 6 adults). Was great. The suite fit us all comfortably and was very clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Nice quiet place without the street noise. Close to all the sites. When I come back to Niagara Falls again this is definitely the place I will stay at.

Very affordable for Niagara Falls. We were pleased with the size and cleanliness of the room and especially pleased with the location. Walking distance to the falls, both the Canadian side and the American side via the Rainbow Bridge. Best part of the location was that it was a block or two off of the main tourist drags. We had no street noise and no crowds around the hotel. A couple of convenience stores were nearby as well as a good Chinese restaurant on the corner. Another bonus was that we couldn't hear noises or voices from other rooms. Very quiet.

The room was clean and quiet. Close to the "main drag" of Niagara Falls - within 10 minutes walking distance. Very friendly and personalable employees. Any issues were resolved immediately. Pool was clean and refreshing. Very affordable accomadations for a family on a budget. Contental Breakfast was minimal, but coffee was always available.

My fiancee and i went to Niagara falls over the weekend and i had intially gone online to try and book one of larger well known hotels but could not believe the rates they were charging (average weekend price was around $220 a night, some were actually around $300.00-$400.00!!) We do travel alot but have not stayed overnight in Niagara for a few years. Refusing to pay this price for niagara falls i stumbled upon the Americas Best Value Inn. Most of the reviews were very good and the price was much cheaper than most so we booked.I wasn't sure what to expect as we never stay in motels considering the condition of most.

We were pleasantly surprised, the grounds are manicured nicely and the rooms are very clean (just as clean as any big name hotel). The staff were friendly. You can tell that the owners do their best to maintain thier property and want to provide a great stay for thier guests while offering them reasonable rates. They have an indoor and outdoor pool but we never used it, heard it was good. Some things are dated as the motel is older (however, once you walk around check out the other motels, you will certainly be glad you stayed here) and you can't expect the same kind of "bells & whistles" you might find at the Hilton, keep in mind it is still an affordable motel. However, the motel is very clean, (no funky smells, etc) has all your basic needs and it is probably the best value in the heart of the Niagara strip. If we return to Niagara we will book here again.

This is a clean, safe option to the $300+ priced hotels with falls view. It is definately two stars, bring your own hair dryer, and no coffee in the room, but has free wifi, and is clean, clean, clean. Close walk to Clifton Hills and the falls. :)

Thank you for your review. Just as an FYI, for the rooms that do not have a hairdryer in them already, you can request one from the front desk.
