The staff, especially Neil, were very helpful. The room was very nice, clean, roomy and comfortable. The hotel is older but appears to have been well maintained. Price and location were very good for the area. This is definately a place that I will stay at next time I'm in Niagara Falls.

We had a very enjoyable stay at Howard Johnson's Niagara Falls. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was clean and a good size for our family of 5 ( 2 grandkids) Breakfast was sufficent, and restocked constantly.We certainly did not go without. The big draw ( for the kids ) was the pool. Very nice clean and open hours were convenient. The best part is it really is within walking distance of everything. We parked our car and never used it again until we left. Had a great time. Thanks Ho Jo's

One of the best motels I have ever stayed in. Large rooms, equipped with almost everything. But very old fashioned TV. Good breakfast with plenty of room to have it. Very close to the Falls indeed. Friendly, helpful staff. Nice, clean and calm place.

This is definitely an old hotel. My understanding is that it was build in about 1963. It has been upgraded as you can see the water pipes in the ceiling for the fire suppression system. The room was clean and comfortable to sleep in. We were one the ground floor and could not hear any outside noise except for the tour helicopter that lands next door. You are so close to the park, you can see Discovery Center and the trolleys going back and forth. Wish the center was open but it was closed for construction. I say this, because you could not hear the construction noise either.

Breakfast was light and the eating area was small. We took our food back to the room as we were directly across the hall. The hotel could use some help. The most endearing thing about this hotel is the guys working the front desk and tour desk. They were a hoot and made out stay enjoyable. That had plenty of information about the area.

Room Tip: We were on ground floor and had no problems. You may want to try top floor on the falls side and ma...

The only thing good about this hotel was its location. The hotel is old and very worn. Updating is badly needed. The size of the room was good but everything about the place screams for renovation. Breakfast was adequate but nothing to write home about. Very disappointing.
