Howard Johnson Closest to the Falls and Casino

Reviewed 8 June 2014

This is definitely an old hotel. My understanding is that it was build in about 1963. It has been upgraded as you can see the water pipes in the ceiling for the fire suppression system. The room was clean and comfortable to sleep in. We were one the ground floor and could not hear any outside noise except for the tour helicopter that lands next door. You are so close to the park, you can see Discovery Center and the trolleys going back and forth. Wish the center was open but it was closed for construction. I say this, because you could not hear the construction noise either.

Breakfast was light and the eating area was small. We took our food back to the room as we were directly across the hall. The hotel could use some help. The most endearing thing about this hotel is the guys working the front desk and tour desk. They were a hoot and made out stay enjoyable. That had plenty of information about the area.

The only thing good about this hotel was its location. The hotel is old and very worn. Updating is badly needed. The size of the room was good but everything about the place screams for renovation. Breakfast was adequate but nothing to write home about. Very disappointing.

the hotel is a little dated but the room was very clean and the staff was very friendly. front desk was very nice and gave me a free upgrade to a king bed. the pool was so warm and relaxing. housekeeping was very nice and cleaned our room quickly in the morning. the free breakfast was average with cereal and fruit but a nice thing to have for the morning. I wanted to order in pizza for dinner and the front desk staff was really helpful telling me a ton of places near by that had good food. the hotels tour desk was very helpful even though I did not buy a tour from them they still help me get the most out of Niagara falls. all in all even though the hotel is a little old the staff really makes you feel at home.

The hotel was clean. The staff was great. It was also within walking distance to the Falls. I would diffidently use this hotel again. I did like that hotel had a tour company downstairs in the lobby so I could book a sightseeing tour without leaving the hotel.

The hotel is located in a good place but unfortunately that is the only good thing about this place. The service is pathetic and attitude towards guest is hostile . I would not recommend this place to anybody....
