Convenient location, decent value

A cheaper option available near old casino. Rooms smell of smoke though, which was disappointing.

Parking was a pain

It does mention that you have to pay to park, but outside it says that you must pay at a meter as soon as you get there. So i paid at the meter then went inside. Here they said i wasn't suppose to pay at the meter because they charge me $10 a day as well. So i had to pay twice for parking due to their lack of information

Good value for your buck

The hotel was under renovations, but they still had fairly clean halls, but the room was clean and comfortable. The air-conditioning could have gotten cooler, but it was very liveable. Pool and gym clean quiet comfortable. All things considered it was a good stay.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Get a people mover pass. for the $11.00 we paid in conjunction with some other passes it was worth every penny and more.

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 The bathroom was outdated but clean.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)

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.

Just fine

Everything was fine. Hotel looked a little funky from the outside. Hallways smelled a bit of smoke. Room was clean, got a Fallsview room, could only see the falls from a balcony if you leaned over and craned your neck. Don't bother with the extra $$ for falls view.
