Family Getaway

It is good for the price we paid. The only down side is there is no free breakfast that comes with it. In some inns or hotels the price includes a simple breakfast even just milk, coffee, cereal, bread or donut nothing fancy that I expect. Also, there is no refrigerator in the room you have to request one if you want. But overall decent place to stay and only a few minutes walk to the falls.

Convenient location, decent value

A cheaper option available near old casino. Rooms smell of smoke though, which was disappointing.

treated poorly

Grouchy staff

When we first pulled up to the hotel it looked awful. Much worse then the pictures. For the price, i wasn't expecting the Ritz but I also wasn't expecting the Bates motel. Inside the lobby looked like a motel. There was a front desk lady arguing with a male customer. Another female clerk called me to the counter. She said "ID and credit card" in a seargents tone. No hello, no can i help you, nothing. Between the terrible look of the hotel and the rude staff, i wanted to leave. We gave it a chance, went to the room and it was "ok". Very small but clean. We also used their pool which was also clean a of average size. The location was no too bad. About a 10 minute walk to get to clifton hill, casino etc. Still after coming home yesterday i'm still upset how i was treated so rudely and by the way the man beside me was treated by his front desk clerk its obviously happening to everyone. I hope the owner reads this review because the front desk makes or breaks you like it did with us.

Good deal

Location is good but a free continental breakfast would be best Paid a buffet breakfast but did not realize had to pay for the coffee and juices separate.Years past did not have to pay for parking - parking fee is a rip-off - the room had a balcony which was very nice but the light on the balcony kept us awake! Couldn't turn it off. But we would return anyways because of the location.

Parking was a pain

It does mention that you have to pay to park, but outside it says that you must pay at a meter as soon as you get there. So i paid at the meter then went inside. Here they said i wasn't suppose to pay at the meter because they charge me $10 a day as well. So i had to pay twice for parking due to their lack of information

Got what I paid for: "Very little!"

Below average room. Noise from air conditioning unit kept me up. Called front desk to have someone look at it and no one responded. Bed springs were coming through mattress. Our room faced a run down abandoned house

Won't stay again.

have stayed at michaels several times over the years and this was the worst stay i have had. They were renovating the lobby so everthing was torn up. they should have renovated the rooms first since they are in rough shape. The blankets and comforter were dirty and had hairs all over them. We asked the desk if they could change them but no one ever showed up even though they said they would. The next day I asked the desk again and they finally had someone change them. If you eat at the breakfast area plan on eating on concrete since they tore up all the carpet. Overall the rooms are not very clean and I think I would stay somewhere else before staying there again. Keep in mind that this is where we stayed on our honeymoon yrars ago.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Niagara on the lakes was a very nice town to spend the day at. It is about 10 miles away. If you like wine tasting there are several wineries in that area.
