If you are after a view of the Falls then this hotel is not for you - there are no hotels on the US side that have views. Saying that - the location was great only about a 10 minute walk to the viewing platform and Rainbow Bridge. Check-in was painless, the staff were very friendly and the room was clean. Bed was comfortable and bathroom also clean but the best part was the view of the autumn trees across the road in the park. Breakfast consisted of sweet pastries, juice and coffee although I did manage to spy some bread in a plastic bag for toast which came in handy for my Vegemite. The breakfast room itself was VERY small and it didn't help that people I presume who were staying at the hotel had bought large hot breakfasts elsewhere and came here to eat it leaving no room for those who wanted to eat the hotel food. Lots and lots of souvenir outlets in the vicinity including one huge mega store that promised the best view of the falls - but failed to deliver as everything was under renovation. Dining at Dennys or The Hard Rock Cafe are just a couple of option we found good. Overall a good 'no fancy trimmings' hotel.
