This motel is simply WONDERFUL!! Each theme room is beautifully decorated. We stayed in the "South of France" room, and you really felt as if you were there. The owners have gone to great pains to get every detail right in each room. The bed was so comfortable, with top of the line bedding. What I could not get over was how CLEAN everything was. Absolutely SPOTLESS!! The owners were so kind and friendly. You felt as if you were staying in someone's home, rather than at a motel. When we came back to our room after dinner, we found a plate of pastry the owners make daily, for a evening treat for us to enjoy. So close to everything, and at such a great price!! Sadly, we were in town for just one evening. I would have liked to have stayed longer and tried some of the other rooms!! We will certainly be back next year for a longer stay!!!

My husband and I stayed here three nights while visiting Niagra Falls. We were in room #9, the Bulgarian room. It was VERY clean, which is the main thing that we look for in a motel. Per other reviews that we had read, we called ahead at let the owner know that we would be arriving late, so she left our key for us. What great service! The towels were made into the shape of swans. Yes, the room is small, but certainly adequate for us, since we spent very little time in the room. We were too busy viewing all that Niagra Falls had to offer. The free parking is another plus. Wifi in the room is spotty, but that was minor. We appreciated the pastries in our room each day.

I would highly recommend the Rex. Clean, and a great value, and excellent service. What more could you ask for?

Room Tip: We had the Bulgarian and loved it!

This is a 50's retro motel that has been renovated, yet not enlarged. Service was superb, room was very clean. Sparse lighting, electrical outlets, space, amenities. If you want the retro feel, go for this motel, otherwise try another.

We booked this motel as it topped the ranking in Niagara Falls. Taking the room rates into account, we did not expect too much from the beginning. If you don't do either, I think this is overall a good choice.

Pros: Owner is very friendly. Free parking. Very good value. Charming rooms. Clean bathroom. We could check in 2 hours early. Free Wifi (but you may have to go outside for a first connection). There is a 7-Eleven gas station directly opposite to the hotel. We went there for coffee & hot chocolate.

Cons: Room is directly accessible from the outside. The door handle is a bit shaky and the key very small. Certainly it would be not difficult to break in. There is no safe. Thin walls. Motel is next to busy street (but was no problem during the night). Location - too far away from Niagara falls for walking - but excellent if you have a car.

While Niagara Falls is not a beautiful town (very touristic), consider driving to Niagara-on-the-Lake which is an extremely beautiful place.

Nice room. Very well maintained and extremely clean. Everything you can wish for in a motel room. Just a short drive to Niagara falls (just a bit too far to walk, 3 km).
Very nice owners! Explained parking at Niagara falls and had allready a room ready for us in the morning.

I selected this hotel for a one night stay after reviewing what was available on Trip Adviser. When we go away, we spend very little time in a room, preferring to spend our money on what's available in the area (activities, restaurants, etc.) and minimize what we spend on a space we just sleep in, so this small motel met our needs in this respect. It had character, due to each room being individually decorated, and we were given a choice of what was available at the time we checked-in - I selected 'Venetian'. The room was clean, comfortable, had a hairdryer, TV, microwave, fridge and coffee machine. Good water pressure in the shower. The absence of a room to be provided with, or to eat, breakfast was the only disadvantage for us. However, a disadvantage others might consider is that their terms/conditions don't allow alcohol in the rooms. There is a 7-11 across the road at which one can buy food. The Rex is some distance from the Falls ( 30 - 45 minutes brisk walking), but that wasn't a disadvantage for us as we like to walk. We'd recommend it and would return ourselves.

Room Tip: Venetian room was quiet - no guest room to its left.

We started the part of Canada in Rex motel and could not be better, the motel is very cute and the owners are very kind, they helped us with the maps, how to arrive to Niagara, and also very kinds with a problem we had with the car and they helped us as much as they could.

If you go by car, the best hotel to stay at.

Thanks!
