Red Heart-Shaped Tub..probably not clean, but cool looking in the corner of our room.

lovely in a cheesy-i'm-in-niagara-falls-so-im-going-to-be ironically hipster-cheeseball sort of a way.

Weekend getaway

Room was nice but decor was dated. Looking forward to seeing the renovations they have done to the front lobby and resturant move through the entire hotel. Would definitely stay again, and staff was very friendly and helpful.

Great family getaway for the price

Micheals Inn rates are very reasonable. We were pleasantly surprised with the hotel for the price we paid! The rooms were clean and the staff was very accommodating. We arrived hours before check in and they did everything they could to get our rooms ready which they did. We will definitely stay at Micheals Inn on our next stay!

Basic but pretty decent!

I was a little hesitant about staying here but it was great! perfect location, great staff and pretty nice pool area! The location was excellent! Our room looked out over the Niagara River. We had a balcony which was nice. The room décor is very dated and the hotel is a little rough around the edges but we enjoyed our stay and will stay again.

Michaels Inn Niagara Falls

Great location, 10 minutes walk to the Clifton Hills, except for the location, everything else is just average. When checking out, I had to wait at the front desk for about 15 minutes, so that they can send someone up to check the room, make sure nothing is missing.

Gratifying Stay

I was pleased to find the Hotel so easily. Just a right turn off of the Rainbow bridge into Canada. Pleasant and most helpful Hotel Staff. Easy access to Pool, Sauna, and Hot Tub area. Quiet, Restful. Clean. I got my money's worth. Thank you! PS There was an unexpected charge of $10.00 for parking, however , parking charges throughout the Falls area were much higher , averaging $20.00.

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.
