Just returned from the Rex MOTEL. I normally don't stay at motels but, with the great reviews I couldn't pas up the $63.00 a night rate I found on booking.com. I actually cancelled a previous reservation at a chain hotel that would of cost me $189.00 a night. My wife and I were amazed at how clean our room was, absolutely spotless! The owners were exttreamly friendly, kind and helpful.
Please keep in mind, this is a budget MOTEL. Not a HOTEL. Our king room was adequate, with a comfortable king bed. There was a small fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the room. The rooms are small but has everything one needs, if your looking for a large suite with fancy amenities, go pay 3 times this price. If your looking for a C L E A N comfortable bed to lay your head for the evening, this is a great place to stay.
I read the reviews before we went and took heed. The motel is close to a busy road, and there is a central heating system with ducts that go from room to room, so we brought ear plugs and weren't bothered by noise at all. Since the heating is central, you have no control of the tempature, but we found it very comfortable, and it went down into the 30's at night.
Upon check in, the owner explained that there were no clocks in the rooms, but if we wanted one, she would provided one, as well as an iron and board, if needed.
We returned to our room every evening to find home made pastries, what a nice surprise!
If you don't have your own transportation, this is probably not a good choice, if your going to the falls, the motel is approximately 1.3 miles away.
If you're budget minded and want a spotless place to stay, please consider all of the pluses, and consider some of the negatives and stay at the Rex MOTEL. Again, this is not a fancy spacious chain hotel and doesn't try to pretend to be. Take it for what it is, an affordable, ultra clean, budget motel.
