Great Value

Our 2 night stay was a pleasant experience. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was exceptionally nice and accommodating. It's an older hotel, but fit our needs and budget perfectly. It was just a short walk to the falls and numerous restaurants. It's also pet friendly, which was great since we had our 2 mutts along with us. I would definitely stay there again if we were in the Niagara Falls area.

Check out the gastropub Griffon Pub a few miles from the hotel. The food is amazing - make a reservation - it's worth it!

Anyone Visiting NF, NY. stay here

The hotel and room was good. The location of hotel is perfect and that too includes parking. The best thing they serve the breakfast as well so we don't have to look for the hotel in the morning. The room was having all the features like refrigerator, TV, Microwave, iron, coffee machine...Though the view from my room was not great but who cares if its close to NF state park. Thanks

If you like Indian food then "Zaika Indian Cuisine" at 421 3rd St, Niagara Falls, NY 14301 is very good restaurant. It has very good indian veg and non veg food.

Bad choice

I booked this hotel because it is closer to falls but our experience was not great. Rooms were old, bedsheets had burnt holes and iron box had something stuck to it which we didnt notice and it burnt my husband's t-shirt. Only advantage was that it was very close to the niagara park.

a cold but great trip

The hotel is in a great location you can see Canada from the window in room. The falls and the casino are less than a mile away. The staff was always so helpful and nice they always got us a cab very quickly and greeted us and asked us how our day was going it was very refreshing. I would stay at this hotel again it was great

Okay place

The front desk staff was great with suggestions and directions for enjoying Niagara Falls. My biggest complaint - there was a spill in the elevator when we checked in and it was still there 15 hours later when we checked out.
