Very family friendly

Great location - it was really only one block to the Falls and all attractions / restaurants. The room was very comfortable and much larger than most of the Inn we were staing. The room was very clean. We will recomend this hotel to all our friends who is planning to go to see the Niagra Falls.

Great Value

My experience with Michael's Inn was very positive. The hotel staff was polite and efficient. The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable. For the value, I would definitely stay there again on my next visit to the Niagara Falls. The location is extremely convenient; all the sites were relatively close--within a short stroll. The hotel offers adequate amenities as well.

Great value

Michaels Inn is a very nice hotel close to the Falls. It's one of the older hotels, and is well kept. The room rates are extremely reasonable. I like this hotel a lot and always stay here because it is tucked away from the busy district of Clifton Hill, but is within walking distance of tourist attractions and restaurants.

Perfect!

This hotel was fantastic! It's right over the border and only a 5 minute walk to the falls (a little longer for the Canadian ones). It's right next to the bird aviary which is an amazing site. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The pool, hot tub, and rooms were all wonderful, and the price was so cheap! We were expecting the pictures to be false because of how cheap the hotel was, but all the pictures are true. Only bad part, no free breakfast. But hey, you can't have it all!

Check out the bird aviary right next door--it's really an experience! And make sure you get the falls pass for $40, not just the Maid of the Mist boat ride. The other tours are completely worth it.

Friendly, convenient, plesant

Michael's was a good choice for our stay in Niagara. The room was clean, and comfortable. The Inn was near all the attractions, which saved us on parking and time.

great location

after reviewing several properties for our anniversary trip to Niagara Falls, i kept returning to Michael's Inn. The location, free parking, view, and price confirmed I had made an excellent choice. We do not stay in our room much ever so some amenities were not experienced. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you like being close to attractions but not the noise!

Good bargin, older but solid hotel.

So I would have given the hotel a 4.5 but couldn't get it that precise. Staff was super nice and efficient, room was very clean, no odors or other problems. The half off would be it is a older hotel with older stuff. TV is CRT, ugly green tiles in bathroom. Certainly if it was your home then you would want to update but for a night or two you can live with it. Price was very good for the area, you are very close to the Rainbow Bridge(the customs guy pointed to it), and also a short walk if you don't mind walking to downtown. Parking free, internet was free. Quiet because you are just far enought from the roads to not be bothered but close enough to walk to the falls, boats, downtown, etc. Again the hostesses were very nice.

Sandstone Grill on Victoria is off the main drag, if you go right when you go up the hill to Victoria you are about a block away. Great food!! Great people!! not a tourist trap. Italian and Grill
