Check room location before booking

Fallside room does not mean you have a view of the falls. Rooms in the lower block are dirty and urgently need a total refit and are not fit to be offerred to the public. Rooms at the top of the tower block have fantastic falls view although they could still be cleaner and the decor is 'tired'. The booking information for this hotel was misleading. We expected the rooms booked to have a view of the falls, not the car park and service area of adjoining properties.Several rooms had a smell of stale cigarette smoke, although hotel claims to be No Smoking. Unable to change rooms until the second day.If we hadn't paid in full in advance we would have left and gone elsewhere!

Awesome Hotel

The hotel location is awesome.. but it is not that clean and the AC doesn't work in the hallways.. check out the 14th floor for an amazing view of the falls

Don't be fooled by the price

The hotel has two sides.....the newer wing and then the dismal abyss on the other end. If you do choose this hotel it might be well worth it to ask where your room is. Would not stay here again

Do not stay At This Hotel

room was listed as courtside room, there were no courtside rooms. looking out our window the view was a trash dumpster. Carpets very dirty. Would not ever recommend this hotel to anyone.

Could have been better...

The location was great...everything close by. We did not hear much of anyone else in the hotel during the evening hours. The view was obstructed by trees, and booking in mid-February, I would have expected a room with a much better view than from the 4th floor. The rooms were nice sized, but were in need of updates...bedspreads were old and pillows were not comfortable. The bathroom ventillation fan did not work, so it made the room quite warm after showers. Thankfully, the AC did work properly and kept the room cool.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Go to Yappi's across the street for their large pizza and pitcher of pop special from 2:30 to 4:00...it was great pizza at a reasonable price!

College Frat Party

The location of the hotel is fantastic, and the view from the upper floors is superb. However we received a room on the second floor in the older section of the hotel. We were surrounded by groups of college students, and the hall and rooms looked like they hadn't been remodeled since the mid-90's. Walpaper was peeling off the walls, ceiling tiles leaked and there were stains on the carpet. The rooms seemed clean, but we were somewhat creeped out by sleeping under blankets that looked like they were 10+ years old. The staff was not overly friendly.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Niagara on the Lake was a beautiful little town! If we go back we will stay there for sure.
