Chateau Motor Lodge
Ranked #5 of 8 Hotels in Grand Island
Reviewed 24 August 2012

Super clean rooms were also spacious. The flat screen tv was a surprise and it had all channels included. A few food options close by and we particularly enjoyed walking to Tim Hortons for coffee. The owner was helpful and his recommendations saved us time and money. Staff was great too. The pond was a nice feature and garden was pretty and inviting. Will recommend to family and friends looking for a value stay with peace of mind.

We were on a really long road trip and were arriving much later than the normal check in time, so the owner personally called us to make sure that we are still coming, told us what our room number will be (so we can park next to it) and when we arrived and called him, he was there in 2 min to check us in because he lives somewhere nearby. Overall the rooms are clean and the garden outside makes the place look cute, so it's a great deal for the value. Free wi-fi was helpful, and the bathrooms were clean. The location is just a few min away from the Niagara falls and all the attractions. Most important was the awesome service that we got after we left- we forgot an expensive suite at the hotel, and the owner called us and made all the arrangements to mail it to us as soon as possible. The suite arrived just fine and was not damaged and in the condition that we left it. Wanted to say thank you for the hospitality, place is really recommended!

Owner and staff very friendly. Room was clean and quiet. Garden with pond, tables and benches for sitting very relaxing natural setting. Would recommend this motor lodge to all who visit Grand Island/Niagara falls area.

We enjoyed our stay and were very comfortable even though this place is a bit outdated. We were there for a family reunion so we wanted to be close to the KOA. We too found the management very friendly and helpful. Everything we needed was close by. I did do laundry once at the KOA, I don't think there was any laundry facilities available. If you are looking for a reasonable and quiet place to stay, for the price this place worked very nice for us.

This is a very old property. It looks like a drive up motel from the 1950's, (which is certainly not a problem.) I found the location and room to be functional. We had a queen bed. I could sleep, but wife had trouble on the older mattress.. The room was large. It had a small fridge and small microwave. You could see where the fridge is was a kitchenette at one time that was ripped out. Drain pipe covered with duct tape. Oh boy. Well, the room was clean, the location is quiet. New TV with dish network.

If you're looking for a basic room close to the falls, this should work. If you want something like a Holiday inn express or more expensive, you will not like this place.

Owner and staff were very friendly. Owner comes and goes all day, but there was someone around the property to talk to during the day if you need something. We were coming in late, and read that the management was not on site late. We called earlier in the day and made arrangements. No one at the office, but we were able to get into our rooms and squared up the next day. There is a phone number on the door to call, and it rings through to the owner if he is not in the office. However, there are no phones in the rooms, and no pay phone on site. So if you don't have a cell phone, you're up the creek.

Across the street is a small restaurant that has decent food, pretty cheap. Cash only. Nearby are a McDonalds, Wendy's, Dunkin Donuts, and Tim Horton's. There are a few more places but didn't try them. It's close to the Falls, and about 20 minutes from the airport.

Bottom line. I prefer something like Holiday in express. If I were going back, and could not get something like a Holiday inn express, I would stay here again.

Room was very large, & bathroom was new. Excellent water pressure. It had a fridge, but no microwave. With 2 queens & cot, still had plenty of walking room. (2 adults & 2 teens) Room did smell like cig. smoke, but that is really my only complaint. Very close to the Falls, (10 min) but crossing the bridge is $1 each way. There is fast food in area. It would have been nice to have a continental breakfast to get the day started, but there is a Dunkin Donuts nearby. Did not see any bugs (and i checked!). did have maid service that made the beds, removed trash and supplied fresh towels each day. It was adequate for less than $80/night. no luxury suite, but it was good. flat screen tv w/dish was good. call hotel directly for a better room rate! We were here June 2012 for the tight rope walker over Falls.

Room Tip: call hotel directly for cheaper rate than offered online

We stay here every couple months. The rooms are always VERY clean. The service is wonderful and friendly. They recently upgraded to Dish TV so tv selection has gotten much better. They are simple rooms but always have everything we need. My kids love the beautiful pond out front. My husband and I love how large and clean all the rooms are.
