“Still not bad for the price”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I originally reviewed this hotel in 2010 and this year we stayed there again. There are a couple things to know about this hotel, yes it is dated, and yes the pictures were either taken by a very good photographer, or they are from when the hotel opened!! The rooms don't look like the photos. Keep in mind this is not a 5 star hotel, and my rate was $57/night! Can't beat it!! I requested a room with a fridge and microwave and got a room on the 4th floor. The room was fine. I pulled back the sheets to investigate the mattress and it looked new. I checked it for cleanliness and it was again fine. The pool was great and heated, so my son was happy! I did not expect the miracles, and was thrilled with the price! I would suggest if you get a room that you are unhappy with then ask the desk to make a switch. There are better rooms, and as the other reviewers have noted, the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful! And for the record, I carry Lysol wipes to wipe out the bathroom because I don't think they ever really clean hotel bathrooms!! Just don't expect the Taj Mahal, and for $57/night you can't beat it!

Room Tip: I had a decent room on the 4th floor

Pictures in hotels web page shows the rooms but in their angle. The beds and room is clean but the furniture and the especially the paint on the walls, rugs and hallways, barrooms etc are very old that you do not even want to touch anything. I will not stay here one more time. (by the way staff is friendly, no complaints on their side but renovation is a must!!!)

Room Tip: do not accept rooms in the first floor.

We are happy with the stay but it is a regular hotel/inn, nothing fancy or posh. Nice swimming pool and sauna (closed for January though). The rooms were warm and spacious. Very close to Rainbow Bridge to Canada and Horseshoe Falls (10 mins walk). Only one minus - the bathtub was not clean when we came.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. It was a great value and the accommodations were very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful with recommendations. Very close to walk to everything which is nice since you have to pay to park in any of the other public lots ($5-$10). Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the backside so we didn't hear any traffic. Had a king size with whirlpool tub that...
