“Pleasant staff at the HoJo.”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

As with all hotels there are good and bad points. First the good: The location is excellent. Walking distance to all Falls attractions. The staff as mentioned earlier was very nice. Pleasant greeting at check in and nothing but smiles from any staff encountered throughout our stay. The hotel, although dated, was clean and neat. It had a nice pool and the room was comfortable and clean. The price we paid couldn't be beat in comparison to surrounding hotels. Now the bad, and mind you there wasn't a lot. The room includes continental breakfast. Folks this is a joke. The room they use for this is tiny. Its smaller then a guest room. So you can imagine what it is like when you go down to get a bite to eat. The room is packed. It has three or four tables which were perpetually full. Trying to get a muffin or pastry before they were gone again was nearly impossible. I won't bore you with any more on that subject. It's a decent hotel for a nice weekend in Niagra falls. I certainly recommend it.

We stayed for two nights and hotel was ok for that. Worn, but good location and friendly staff. Also lady selling tours in the lobby was friendly and gave us a map and some useful hints even we didn't book a tour. Location is great! We walked to all falls attractions, including Canada side. Hotel was safe and clean enough. free parking, free motel breakfast (muffins, cereals and coffee etc.). No bed bug not other bugs. Beds were firm and ok to sleep. Room was big enough for family of four. This looked better than the neighbour hotel which was a bit cheaper. I'd say that hotel's level was in line with the whole Niagara US side.. Good value for money.

My friends and I stayed here for 1 night when visiting the Falls. The location was great and we were able to walk across the Rainbow Bridge from here quite easily. We were only in our room to sleep and that was ok. My friends said their beds were too hard but I guess that is personal preference. I had the rollaway bed and unfortunately the mattress was too thin so could feel the inner springs digging into my back. To solve that I put the mattress on the floor and did away with the rollaway springs and that did the job. The hotel was clean enough, the staff were friendly and accommodating, and for the price it was more than adequate. I am fairly easily pleased though s if you are fussy it may not exactly work for you.
