Property features
Billing itself as the "closest inn to the Falls," the AAA 3-diamond Michael’s Inn by the Falls is a full-service property steps away from the falls, Clifton Hill and both area casinos. Recreation and fitness options abound, with a children's wading pool, oversized Jacuzzi, sauna and state-of-the-art fitness center equipped with basic cardio machines and plate-loaded weight training stations. Other amenities include an on-site ATM, safe deposit box at the front desk, free newspaper on Saturdays and room service from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. (varies by season).

The on-site Embers restaurant serves three square meals daily, from casual meals to intimate dinners (children's menus available). There's also Open Hearth Restaurant, a concept venue where the chef prepares innovative entrees in full view of guests, from a glass-enclosed kitchen that offers an energy that's unrivaled in Niagara-area dining.

Nice Hotel

Reasonably priced. Lovely room! Short walk (around 10 minutes) to Clifton Hill and the Horseshoe falls. Hotel doesn't have free breakfast. There is also no round-the-clock free coffee/tea/water at the hotel and $10 for parking per day -- which, I understand, is typical for most hotels in the area. There is a restaurant at the hotel, open for a limited time in the mornings. Great and friendly staff!

Gratifying Stay

I was pleased to find the Hotel so easily. Just a right turn off of the Rainbow bridge into Canada. Pleasant and most helpful Hotel Staff. Easy access to Pool, Sauna, and Hot Tub area. Quiet, Restful. Clean. I got my money's worth. Thank you! PS There was an unexpected charge of $10.00 for parking, however , parking charges throughout the Falls area were much higher , averaging $20.00.

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.
