“An excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

My stay at The Rex Motel was one of the best experiences I have ever had. The room was super clean. I was greeted by Emi one of the owners who went out of her way to make me feel like an old friend. I congratulated her on the Trip Advisor award and she said "This is our home we are welcoming you to our home" She showed me the room, each one has a different theme, she even had home made pastries to enjoy as a treat. Emi gave me directions to the restaurant I wished to eat at, and made other suggestions as well. The owners have made the most out of this little blast from the past and updated it nicely. I had the Italian room which included a charming little bistro set to enjoy the pastries at. The bed was comfortable and cozy and the bathroom was very clean.
One word of advice though, this IS an old motel and as such their vintage purpose was to offer a room to sleep in for the night to weary travellers so the rooms are not spacious, but they are comfortable and neat. My only suggestion is to add deadbolts to the doors for an added sense of security.
Over all the owners cannot do enough for you, they are the friendliest and warmest people. My next excursion to Niagara Falls will include a stay at The Rex Motel.

The four C's - Clean, Comfortable, Convienent, and Cheap. The owners made the stay special, taking care of all our needs. They even printed out my airline boarding passes. The warm homemade pastries were a bonus. The family owned motel is a very special place. Our room was the South of France room. If you are traveling to NF, I would highly recommend you check out the Rex Motel.

We were travelling via Niagara and wanted a place for one night. We were given the Carribean room which was clean and nicely decorated and could park right outside the door. The owner was very pleasant and gave us a lot of information and directions for our days stay. You will definitely need a car to access the sights area and we were advised when to park for free too!
All in All very good value.

We stayed in ROMANCE FOR TWO room - very clean. The bed was queen size and very comfortable, which is not so common. The location is good, free on-site parking.The staff is really friendly and helpful. We would stay there again.

My boyfriend and I are ardent travelers. He works as ground crew for an airline, and my job for a major US corporation keeps me in hotels about 300 days a year. When we aren't traveling for work, we are traveling for vacation.
When we visited Niagara Falls last weekend, we were looking for a quaint place to stay that was near the Falls and that was also a good value.
I read the trip advisor reviews for The Rex, and we decided to give it a try. I have to say that I fell in love with The Rex!!
When we arrived on Saturday, the owner Emilia took us into 4 different rooms to show us their "nationality" and to let us choose which one we liked best. She and her family have turned these rooms into a little slice of different countries with the decor of the rooms. There was Tuscany, Greece, Caribbean, French and others. The colors and decor were designed to invoke the feelings of the room's theme.
We chose the Greece themed room. The room was painted in pretty, pale turquoise and the bed spread was ocean themed. There were beautiful paintings on the walls depicting Greek life and landscape. The room was sparkling clean! The tub looked like it had never been used. The room had a mini fridge, a microwave and free wifi. The bed was very comfortable and the temperature in the room was perfect.
Emilia gave us fresh hot pastries when we arrived that were delicious!! There was a small mosaic table and charis in the room where we sat and ate our pastries. Emilia was so warm and welcoming! She provided us with a map of the area and gave us parking tips. We felt really at home.
On Sunday, she greeted us as we were leaving, and we met more of her family as they were getting the rooms ready for the afternoon guests.
If you are looking to get away from the cookie cutter chain hotels and to have a unique Niagara experience, stay at The Rex. You won't be disappointed!!!

This wonderful place is a powerful demonstration of how family owner-managers can turn a typical "motel" into something so much more than expected. Creativity, attention to detail, design flare and a lot of very hard work have made this a VERY special and welcoming place. The rooms are lovely, each one designed to reflect a different geographic region. My wife and I stayed in #10, South Africa. Beautifully decorated! The king-size bed was extremely comfortable, and the pillows, bedding and linens were first class. The place is perfectly maintained and the rooms are absolutely, spotlessly, clean. Emilia is a charming, attentive, and fastidious hostess. She treats you like honored guests and maintains the rooms like they were her home.

Good location. It is an older motel BUT the owner's have really redone it. Each room has a different theme - we stayed in the French room. VERY clean!! The owner is a wealth of info on how and what to do in the area and saved us a lot of time and money with her suggestions - so with the room you get CONCIERGE service! For the money, this was an excellent choice!!
