Needs Some TLC

This Inn is fine if you are only staying for just a few days and just need a place to crash. To be honest it is a bit stuffy and dingy. Its needs some serious TLC! The location made the place doable. It is a very short walk to anything you would like to do or see. Our car was parked our entire stay. If you are looking for a 3-4 star hotel this is not your pick, but if you want something that "will do" and that is with in walking distance to everything, this is your place. I can't say I will be going back, but it was all right for just a few nights.

Michael's Inn, Niagara Falls Canada

The location is perfect, the rooms dingy but clean, the pool and jacuzzi were nice. If this place were updated it would be a real gem. DO NOT eat there, breakfast was horrible.

To expectation

I'm 45 years old, never had seen Niagra Falls. Wanted a room close to everything available. Was not disappointed, within walking distance to everything. Nice family run establishment, hope fully will be back soon.

Michaels was a good place to stay

Michael's was easy to get to from the Rainbow bridge. It was not fancy, but affordable and did fit my needs for two rooms and 6 family members without breaking the bank. Their breakfast was a bit pricey but you will not go hungry.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

This hotel is close enough to easily walk to the falls without paying premium prices for being so close.
