to tell the truth the Niagara falls are beautiful, we have the first visit on the American side and the next day on the Canadian side crossing the rainbow bridge. on the Canadian side in the morning we climbed to the top of the Skylon Tower, and the view from the top is amazing.A nice walk and then we took a boat ride with the (maid of the mist) Two years before we had visited the (Falls Victoria) and honestly when you saw those the other seems much smaller. I would like to make a suggestion staying on the U.S. side and make a walk across the bridge or if you are in new york take a tour day, a day in niagara is enough!!!

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for Memorial Day weekend and were pleasantly surprised. There was a minor issue when checking in due to the credit card machine acting up, but it was quickly resolved. When we first entered our room, the first thing we noticed was how outdated the decor was, however, we were able to quickly overlook that once we realized how clean it actually was. Our room was on the 4th floor and faced Canada, which was nice to look at, especially at night when it was all lit up. The AC worked fine, we had a comfortable queen size bed, large TV, fridge, microwave, and a couple of other amenities, not to mention the room itself was very spacious, enough so, that another bed probably could've fit in there. The hotel itself was also very conveniently located to dining, shopping, the Seneca-Niagara Casino, and most importantly, Niagara Falls State Park. The continental breakfast was ok...definitely a little small in terms of the space of the room it was in, but there were additional tables in the lobby. It's manageable if you're on a tight budget, and mainly consisted of donuts, small muffins, cereal, juice and coffee. The location of the hotel couldn't have been better. We walked just about everywhere, which was a huge advantage because traffic was very congested at times and also because we saved a lot of money in parking fees. I'd say Niagara Falls itself was probably a 5-10 minute walk with other areas of the park being maybe a 15 minute walk or a little more. The casino was about a 10 minute walk, and the various shops and restaurants were also probably between a 5-15 minute walk. Again...we saved a good chunk of money in parking fees, and avoided the hassle of getting stuck in traffic just by walking from this hotel. There were lots of international dining options and facilities nearby, from food trucks to food courts to sit-down restaurants, we encountered American, Indian, Italian, and Asian cuisine, but definitely a lot of Indian/Pakistani cuisine.There were other state parks along the Niagara River that were maybe a 10-15 minute drive, as well as wineries and the historical Fort Niagara on Lake Ontario within a 20-30 minute drive (opposite direction of traffic). There was a helicopter tour that shared the parking lot with the hotel, so you did hear that frequently, but it stopped around 9pm. The front desk staff was friendly and the hotel was one of the least expensive ones in the area. Overall, it was a good experience, and I would definitely stay there again.

Older hotel but good value for the money. Within walking distance to Falls & Goat Island. Nice spacious room, clean, friendly staff. Breakfast consisted mainly of cereals, pastries, toast, apples, coffee, and juices. Breakfast area is very small. Had fridge, microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer in room. Bed was comfortable. Had plenty of pillows. Heat & air easy to work. Cable wasn't too bad. Internet was slow at times but not too bad. Only downsize was on 2nd morning had to ask for toilet paper. Even after cleaned room no additional toilet paper in room. Had a great stay. Would definitely stay there again.

Highly recommended for Indian travellers. Nice big rooms with clean bed sheets. Breakfast was good but was a bit crowded. The location of the hotel is excellent, right next to the falls. Highly recommended.
