Stay away from lower floors i.e. "City View"

Had a nice 2nd night stay on the 11th floor. Horrible first night in the 2nd floor. I should have known better than choosing the lowest priced option for this property. The City View is essentially a view of the parking lot on the 2nd floor which could honestly be considered a separate building (though attached). Take my advice which is validated by the staff I spoke to - DO NOT stay below the 8th floor because you will NOT see the falls from your room. The receptionist also recommended against the highest floor if you want the very best view. His advice 9-11 are best. The surrounding area is great for dining out and exploring the town.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If you like to walk, you will enjoying a day out on foot as there is plenty to see. Do the Maid of the Mist if you want to see and "feel" the falls up close.

The perfect Niagara Falls view.

We asked for falls view and end up getting falls and city view. Can't get any better then that. At 10pm we had the perfect fireworks view right from our room. Loved it.

Great Deal for the money

Had a great time. Hotel room was very comfortable. Not all rooms with a falls view are equal. You must go at least to the 11th floor to get a fully unobstructed view since trees are in he way. Did get a small credit when I complained about the view. Otherwise great location.

A three star hotel with no star room!

The courtyard room was a very ordinary motel room facing the Applebee's parking lot! The hotel was listed as a three star but does not say anything about the tower part being different from the courtyard! The furniture was broken and everything else in the room had a very worn out look. They charge for parking, but not enough space in lot!

Nice view but not so impressed about the rest

Normally we do not complain but with kids it is a big neg not to have breakfast available at the hotel, wifi didn't work in the room and no one in the staff said good morning.
