When we first got there we weren't too impressed because the streets surrounding the hotel are pretty dull. The hotel itself is very small. We checked in and the lady at the front desk was very nice. We had a room on the first floor and did not have any issues with noise. However, I did find they were cleaning all day, vacuuming the whole time we were in the room. The room had a long hallway, i guess to insure if there is noise it won't travel all the way down the hallway. The bathroom was huge and so luxurious! The jetted tub was huge and the shower also, both amazing. We had a king bed which was comfy, but my boyfriend found it a little hard. Some other reviewers said they found their bed hard too. They tell you you have a choice for breakfast but not really. Its either a tiny cup of orange juice or apple juice. It was pretty good though, but if I had to eat that every morning I would probably go else where. For one day it was okay, especially considering it was complimentary. The only thing that bothered me is you get to choose the time. We said 945. However she came at 9. Not that big of a deal but it was for me. What is the point of choosing a time when you do not follow it. It was Very nice to have free in room wifi which worked well, considering some hotels charge you $13 per night.. Like the Marriott..
The hotel location is great too. 2 min walk to cliffton hill area and 15 to the canadian falls. The best part is THE FREE PARKING!! i was soo happy to find that out. Other hotels will charge you $30 ! Its a really great hotel for the price. I wasn't too impressed with the cracked lights beside the bed and the button for the fireplace was really dirty and disgusting. Overall this is a great hotel for a great price though, the free parking and location makes it a must! We also stayed at the Marriott Fallsview and Spa (the better Marriott) on our second night which is on the opposite side where the canadian falls are. It was super also! Feel free to check out my review on that one also.
Attractions - just to give you a bit more info about Niagara falls
Even though cliffton hill seems "kidish" my boyfriend and I had a great time. ( We are in our twenties ) Definitely recommend getting the fun pass for $25, even if you dont go to all the attractions that are included, you still save money. The SkyWheel is great. You get two admissions so it is best to go once in the day and once at night. It's open pretty late. The was museum is pretty good, at the end you have the choice of going to the exit or going through a "haunted house" part.. Which was terrifying! I ran right through it, was pretty long actually. The galaxy gofl was a huge disappointment. It was cool the glow in the dark, but all the holes are the same, just with different objects. The ghostblasters I found really fun, you go on a ride and shoot at monsters with a laser gun. My boyfriend really enjoyed the 6D motion movie theater. It's pretty cool actually, it's a simulator of a rollercoaster ride. Very well done. You also get Tokens for the midway arcade which is really fun. You need a lot of tokens to get a decent prize though!
Also, two good restaurants are the Skylon Tower and HardRock cafe. We went for the Early Dinner at the Skylon Tower, which is $30 and you get a delicious garden salad, choice of an entree (I got the beef tips -- AMAZING!) and a chocolate mousse. Really impressed. They also gave us a piece of a caramel cheesecake because it was our 2 year anniversary. All the workers are soo nice!! Especially Dan! Very nice guy. I feel like he really went above and beyond for us. You also get to go to the observation deck for free since you ate there, which is very convenient.
Hope I was helpful in my review.
