nice getaway for the price

This hotel was very nice. The room was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was muffins, toast, cereal with milk, canned fruit and waffles with juice and coffee/tea. I didn't get hot water for a shower one morning, don't know if I didn't run the water long enough or if it was gone. Everything else was fine the bed was comfortable. There are no particular frills, by the price was good. I would stay there again.

Not the first time

it not our first time staying there. we go there mostly in the winter, in the summer hotels in the falls are very expensive. we like the place, but this time the room was not as good as the times before. the AC/Heather was not working properly, the bathroom heather heated the place , so we left the bath door open. the room needs a little TLC, but hey is a 2 starts motel, your get what you pay. please don't get me wrong, this is a good place, maybe only this room is one of the exceptions. I saw some ants in the bathroom, and cleaning lady/man need to be more careful. in the bright side; the front counter person was really nice, and accommodated our needs graciously. we will be back.

short getaway

Hotel is ok the only problem we had with the hotel is that they told us when we ask about the channels on the tv that that is all the got and it was only 8 channels and 2 of them were the same channels. They did upgrade the room because they needed to 2 and we only needed I bed that was nice. Worked for both of us. Like I said the tv was only issue.

Slightly better than sleeping in the car.

Floors dirty. Hole had been knocked in wall next to bathroom. Dingy wallpaper coming loose at seams. Old low quality beat-up furnishings. Dirty, stained chair upholstery. Old low quality TV with very limited channel selection. When sitting on edge of beds, entire mattress and springs would raise and tilt over toward floor. Bathroom exhaust fan noise was terrible. Second day of stay rooms were not serviced at all. Tub and shower unit was rather new and worked well. This motel is very old and needs extensive remodeling or total replacement. Would never stay there again at any price.

HJ Express - I'm a little smarter

Staff was super duper friendly. Room met my standards. Quite warm for the cool nights. Very close to Falls as well as QEW. I would stay here again.

Back for another trip

This was my third trip back in the last three years so since I keep coming back I must like it and I do. Something new this year was the waffle maker for the free breakfast which was very nice and the waffles were good too. Also, they had breakfast cereal, raisin bran and frosted corn flakes. Breakfast was from 7-9am. Clean room and comfortable bed. I can only think of one small problem that I can complain about. The carpet in the room could use good scrubbing or better yet a new carpet. It was a little sticky.

shocked and disgusted

the worst hotel in the world! based on the photos and prices ($97/night), we thought it would be a decent hotel, it turned out to be a nightmare! it was incredibly run-down, everything was broken and non-functional. The hotel was incredibly dirty- I refused to use the hot tub or the bead spread cover. I have never paid that much money for an awful hotel like this, I will never stay in Niagara Falls again, hotels think they can charge any price for any pigsty.
