Getaway.......... Disappointed

Booked fallsview room only to find out the deceit. The front desk girl had condescending attitude. I mentioned about the room and what floor we had, which was 2nd, with no view,only to be told by her and very rude to go to the 14th floor observation tower if we wanted view. Construction in the hallways, very inconvenient. Experience there very disappointing, not recommending to anyone!!!!

View is best but what about hair in Jacuzzi tub?

Location is best, there is no way you can get better view of the Falls but what about cleanliness ? I found too many hair pieces around bathroom and inside jacuzzu tub, I went down to Front desk to talk to Manager but girl told me that Managers dont stay after 5PM until 9 AM, what a joke! A huge hotel without manager for 16 hours? Again, great location, double check your room and tub before you enter and have them to clean well, then you have best location, bad management

Needs a makeover!

We checked in pretty late and only stayed for a total of 12 hours. The lobby was maybe the nicest part of the hotel, the air conditioning was pretty weak. The rooms definitely need renovations, is not modern, beds are not as comfortable, tv well there's not many channels, quality not clear. Hallways wallpaper falling apart. The checkout staff kept us waiting for awhile before we were acknowledged. Maybe finish your paper after customers are served or at least tell us to wait abit, instead we awkwardly stood there. Not as welcomed as a 4-5* hotel. But I guess should've expected that as the price definitely reflects the hotel. Actually the Ramada by the outlet is comparable in price and a lot nicer and more modern. If you don't care too much on where you stay then It's ok. The view on the 4th floor is of trees and the midst of the falls.

Pick another hotel in Niagara Falls.

The pictures were very deceiving. They showcased the hotel with these luxurious accommodations which were, in reality, far from it. The hotel is undergoing some major renovations so the hallway carpet was dirty and the hallway walls were peeling. We got a courtyard view which meant we could see the dumpster. "Overlooking the falls?", more like overlooking the parking lot. We were assigned a room on this two-story building adjacent to the main hotel, and it looked like a rundown motel. On our first time in Niagara Falls, we had the misfortune of staying at this hotel, when for around the same price, we could have roomed at a chain hotel with free amenities. I will never go back to this hotel ever again.

Location was great ! Ammenities not so much

For the money paid to stay on a weekday where the falls was really very close to the hotel, I would say location was the BEST! In order for us to save, we decided to go on a weekday. If it was on a weekend, it was almost double. They dont have free parking so either you pay $20/night to park right at the hotel or park elsewhere which is about $10/night. Wifi is almost non existent. You pay $ 10 to use it for the whole trip but signal only works if you are in the lobby. Staff was great and gave me a refund on wifi charge, We were on the 7 floor which did not have a super great view because of the trees. I did request a higher floor ( they have about 19 or 20 floors ) but assigned us on the 7th. I also requested a refrigerator but they did not have anything for me to use. I guess they were all out of it. You would also pay for these if you want a ref in your room. We took the double Queen beds and the mattress, sheets and pillows were awesome. I wish I knew the brand of the pillows, just loved it. Clean room, no cabinets but lots of drawers. We all slept very well. Some view of the falls on the 7th floor. I would recommend this hotel as everything is very close by. Just request for higher floors if you want a better view.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you want to save when eating, go a block after the tourist spot area. Avoid Falls view Blvd and Stanley Ave. unless you are willing to pay 2 kinds of taxes.. 13% and 3% as these streets are tourist areas. A block after these streets are cheaper. They have coupon books in hotel entries so use those as well to save more.

A million dollar worth view

The best feature of this hotel is the view to Niagara falls thus a room with a fallsview is a must. WiFi is satisfactory, everything else corresponds with 3* hotel status.

Wonderful view, needs refurbishment

Booked it for the falls view, which was very good, though we would have preferred to stay on higher floors than 9th. The lobby is being refurbished, and the room was old and needs refurbishment. It smelled (and was full of) dust because of the old conditioner. Pity the windows do not open. Expected a better room, but the views of the falls are very nice.

Didn't live up to expectations

Hotel under renovation. The was a $20 parking fee that wasn't stated in the reservation. The falls weren't really visible as they said they will be.
