Family Getaway

Hotel was great, the staff could have been more friendly and check in was at 3:00 but did not have our room ready till 4:30 so having to wait in lobby with kids was very inconvenienced, but overall was a great place.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

I would recommend bringing your own drinks with you if you can due to a 20oz bottled water or soda is $3.00 a piece, and food is double the price you would pay in the states.

save time and money

This hotel is not overlooking the falls as they advertise unless you upgrade to their premium rooms. So add another 100 dollars per night. Not worth it. No free breakfast. No free parking. Pool is small. Their terrace consists of just a few windows. Overall not worth your time. Not worth your money.
