Good location

Staff seemed disaffected and rushed. But we liked the location and the view is quite nice of the falls at night. A good budget stay.

Broken Hotel, Awesome view

We stayed here 7/12/14. I read reviews that this hotel was broken down, dirty, but had a great location. They were all right. I noticed that the light fixtures in the lobby were all sticking out. The whole hotel was out dated by a good 30 years. Went up to our room, the hotel walls looked half complete from a remodel but obviously they weren't remodeling. The only thing that was perfect was the view. We were on the tenth floor room 1023. Excellent view. So, sheets were clean and no holes.

Amazing views of the falls

The best thing about this hotel is the views! The staff is nice and kind, the rooms are clean, and the location is great. But the view is the best feature of this hotel. Make sure you get a 'fallsview' room and not a 'fallsside' room. Fallsside rooms are standard rooms in floors 2-8. And falsview rooms are 8 and upper floors.
