We booked this hotel as a 3 star mystery hotel near Fallsview. I was disappointed when I completed my booking and found this to be the hotel. It was really far from the falls, and had some pretty bed reviews on here.
When we arrived, though it was pretty far from everything, it appeared to be a decent looking place. The lobby looked like it was recently updated, the pool area looked clean (we never went there though) and the front desk staff were friendly. I did notice a weird smell throughout.
We got our room key (235) and went to get settled in. When we got in our room I was happy that it was tolerable. The weird smell was still lurking though. The beds looked decent and there were clean duvets on the beds as opposed to itchy blankets. We turned the tv on and the channel selection was not the greatest. Our remote did not work too well either. As previous reviews had mentioned there is no wifi. Though this may not be a big deal to some people to me, it was upsetting. With a poor selection of tv channels it would have been nice to watch some Netflix on my iPad to kill some time in between excursions and in the evening.
Now to the ANTS. We went to bed on our first night and I left some iced tea in an open bottle and some fruit on a plate on the night stand. I didn't think too much of this as I have done similar things in other hotels without a problem. Well, this time it was a problem. I woke up to a few ants on the sheets of the bed. I was still waking up and was thinking it was pretty gross but wasn't horrified. This changed in about 3 seconds when I came to my senses and got up to investigate. I looked at the nightstand and there must have been 300 ants crawling all over the place. The strawberry was unrecognizable and the bottle of iced tea was coated. I immediately went to the front desk to get this corrected. They gave me a new room, but didn't seemed to phased by this which leads me to believe it is a common occurrence. I would have appreciated a heartfelt apology or an offer of an upgrade or something. Nothing of the sort was mentioned.
Our new room appeared to be ant free. We had no other problems except for the weird lingering odour that I now believe was a combination of ant repellant and air freshener.
As soon as I booked the mystery offer on Travelocity I regretted it. I wish I had booked something closer to the falls that had better reviews. I will not be going that route ever again. Thankfully it was inexpensive and only 2 nights.
This hotel would have tolerable if it weren't for the ants. Yuck, I still cringe thinking about it.
