As all other hotels were booked, we booked 2 rooms at this place. After reading other reviews was expecting worst during our stay. But it was not that bad. We got clean rooms (small issue with tub which they immediatey rectified). next morning our kids were late for breakfast, the lady was kind enough to wait for them to finish....

As of Aug 2013, this property must have gone under incredible changes. It was GREAT. We preferred Econo Lodge over Embassy Suites Fallsview (Ontario). I was given a military discount and we were very happy with the location, free wifi, comfortable bed (wonderful nights sleep after getting out of the whirlpool), TV channel choices, friendly staff, microwave/fridge, decent breakfast choices,...

After driving from NJ for almost 8 hrs and stopping in Buffalo to visit some family, we went on a search for hotels around the area. After many stops and no room availables we stopped here and was told they had no rooms available but could put us in one of their partnering hotels. I asked if it was as...

Made a last minute decision to spend the night after spending the day in Niagara Falls. Called and made a reservation at the last minute. Desk staff was very accommodating. We were given room no. 129. Walked in and were immediately turned off by the horrible smell of urine mixed with something else that I can't even describe. The door...

This hotel was terrible! We wished we had stayed somewhere else but choices were limited on a long weekend. We called to book a king bed but were told there were none available even though the web site clearly had a room with a King bed available. We settled for 2 Queen beds instead. When we arrived we were greeted...

WELCOMED CHANGE!!! I stayed here some years back when the hotel was the Grand Motor Inn, I was passing through with my kids and wife. What a horrible stay, the service was inadequate and my kids were treated rudely by the front desk. I was very pleased to see the property had changed management and a new hotel name appeared....

When I stayed here I was a little unsure if I had made the correct decision. When I arrived the lobby was fresh and looked new, I was greeted by warm, friendly staff. I made it up to my room, and to my surprise it was spotless. Great Value. I wold recommend to anyone to stay here.

I'm not sure where the bad reviews are coming from. I have stayed here 3 or 4 times now, and find this hotel to be well run, clean, convenient and a great value. There is a flat screen TV, microwave and fridge in the room, the bed was VERY comfortable, and I had a great stay. So close to malls...
