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.

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.

Do not try them.

Hotel was run down. Staff was NOT friendly at all. A/C run like engine room. Asked for king bed, no luck. Not worth it at all.

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.

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!
