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.

Fine hotel, but...

The hotel is fine, location good, clean, etc. But, they have multiple signs in the lobby offering a 50% discount on your next stay if you give them a good review and send them a copy. Also, I had to pay $10 for parking in their lot, which wasn't included (or mentioned) in the booked price.

Its just ok

not the cheapest place, but it was nicer than the motels and other inn's. The hot tub, room w/balcony, service was alright. The bathroom was outdated but clean. The location was great. Walking distance to the Clifton strip. We also can see the US falls about 20 min walk to niagara falls (but it was a nice walk)

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

5 min cab ride under 8 bucks to falls view casino! Fun and exciting! Afterwards hit up club dragonfly downstairs of the casino. The crowd ranged from 25-40.

"Run of the House" room was a dump!

Purchased "economy run of house" room through Orbitz. The room was a dump. Peeling wall paper, old 70's decor, old bathroom. Unfriendly staff. Had to cross to another building to get ice. Only positive - walking distance to falls.

Extremely close to the falls! Great stay

Very close to the Niagara falls, across the bird kingdom very near to the main street, Victoria Ave. The room was cleaned and the staff very friendly. Breakfast was good and free parking!
