We are so happy with the Rex. For the price they charge you will be very very hard pressed to find a better place to stay. Super friendly owners, exceptionally clean rooms, cute themed rooms, comfy beds, free parking and wifi, flexible when we had to change our travel date.... I would recommend bringing your own toiletries, but I do...

Just a heads up that there is no free cancelation policy in place and a $25.00 charge will immediately go through on your credit card upon booking. Even, with 3 months advance notice of me wishing to cancel, the owners wouldn't. $25 is no biggie - but the charge increases (for this motel) the closer to the date you get.

This motel is owned by a lovely couple who are always friendly and helpful. It is a little far from the tourist area, but with a GPS or taxi, you can navigate the city quite easily. The rooms are themed (cute), but the ones that we have stayed in are quite small. For a night or two stay, it's just...

Room is very beautiful, cozy, clean. And I think you should bring your own things. Their's only microwave oven and ref. (soap, shampoo, towel too) But it's far from falls or hill If you have car, I'll strongly recommend to you. But if not, want to say 'it'll be little hard babe'

My airline stopped service on my original days of travel which resulted in me having to cancel my trip. Orbitz called Rex motel requesting a full refund. Amelia the owner refused to refund my money even though the cancellation was beyond my control was done way in advance. We cancelled 3 months in advance. I have never had a hotel...

The Rex Hotel is a nice little place on the Canada side of Niagara Falls. It's about 10 minutes and $15 by uber to get to the falls. The motel has a friendly staff member who has done all things possible to make the motel feel homely. Each room is themed to a different location. We had the Greek room,...

Good pricing for a small room, but clean and with good bedding. Do not take room #1 as the parking lot is taken up by the motel owner and generate some noise with the car doors. Very friendly welcome.

Spent two nights here when visiting the Falls. No view, but much more economical than motels that were closer. Plus parking is free! Checkin - fast and very friendly. Room - recently renovated. A little smaller than some we have been but perfectly manageable. Comfortable bed. Wifi - worked faultlessly. Hot water - lots of it. Security - no issues.

We stayed here on 12/21 and the place was actually very nice.  Much cleaner than some of the larger chain hotels we've stayed at and for $42 American, we couldn't beat the price. I'm sure this is lower being off-season.  The owner was very nice and gave us vouchers for a wine tasting tour but we arrived too late. However,...

Owner was very friendly and helpful. Room was tastefully decorated with a theme. Lots of little personal touches (fanned towels, 2 sets of bath soaps, pillows matching the theme, 2 china coffee cups with saucers). Very comfortable beds. Great value for the price. Windows were relatively new and sealed well and workable. Room was small but there was enough room...
