“Value for Money Budget Motel”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

This motel was probably about 3 miles form Niagara Falls so you do need a car for your sight seeing. However, the motel itself was clean and tidy and has a small pool. There are a few eating places nearby, (fast food), and a very friendly local bar on the next block.

The lady on reception was very nice and helpful when we asked for directions back to the "falls" - (our room wasn't ready as it was before 11am when we arrived)

It was, as most motels are, cheap and cheerful and for a 1 night stay we could have no complaints at all - it was a value for money budget motel and if motels are your thing then dont' look past this place..

We went to Swiss Cottage Inn from Sept. 10-12. Weather was really hot for this time of year.
The pool was still open, which was great as temp was 30 degrees plus the humidex. Room was reasonably priced, clean, no bugs. Shopping, eating, all within walking distance. There was a
free shuttle to the casino which runs every hour. Overall, we had an awesome time and will return to this motel next time we take a trip to the falls.

We had the room with three doubles
Beds were comfy, was hot and the air conditioner had trouble keeping up at times
Bathroom was tiny but new and very clean
Room had dated furniture but extremely clean rooms
We didn't get a chance to use the pool because it rained every evening we were there but nice appearance
Would definitely stay again

Among the many other motels on the boulevard, I would surely recommend this place! We visit the falls every year and have stayed at other motels (only because Swiss Cottage was fully booked) and still prefer it over the others. The rooms are impeccably clean, we had one with two double beds that was just renovated. The furniture is new, the mattress was comfortable and the carpet is fresh. The owners who run the place are a friendly older couple who really go out of their way to make sure that our stay is always pleasant. We always go in the summer and take our kids, they love the swimming pool! It is not a 5 star hotel, is a small family-run business. So if you are looking for an affordable friendly place to stay, in a great location, I recommend Swiss Cottage Inns.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the renovated rooms!

clean and simple. Everyone was nice and helpfull . Good budget hotel.Had a swim in pool which was nice as most hotels along that stretch don't have pools.
We were there for outlet malls that were a short distance away.Had wings not to far away that were great.

Good budget hotel with a easy bus ride ti the falls. Hotel owner was pleasant and helpful, let us leave our bags before check in and after check out. Fron the reviews we weren't expecting much but for under $50 a night we were happy. However for another night (friday) they were asking $100+ each would have been another story.
The bus into the falls was easy and cheap, $2 a ride or $10 for a day pass if I remember correctly.
On the downside the wifi was very poor and we were relying in it quite a lot to plan our travels.

We were looking for the least expensive place to stay in Niagara falls. Even though we knew it was going to be small we were a little bit shocked when we walked into the room. It was very small and very dated. The shower did not have a light fixture, it was like showering inside a dark cave. I had to leave the curtain open to be able to see the soap and shampoo. Like the shower was an afterthought or a bigger room was divided into two smaller ones. It was weird to stay here. I felt dirty, like we were staying at a place that charges by the hour. However, there was a fridge and a microwave in the room which was nice. We could hear people sneezing outside our window. I would not recommended this hotel. I will pay more next time and at least get a real shower.
