Not far from Niagara Falls, Niagara on the Lake and St. Catherines is the small town of Thorold. We stayed at the Inn at Lock Seven. It was old but clean and comfortable. The best part was our balcony directly across from Lock 7. We watched ships go North and South through t

We chose the Inn as we came for a friend’s wedding just down the road. Simple but clean accommodation, kids (and grown ups!) entertained by the big ships passing through the lock), only 20 minutes drive to Niagara.

The Inn was a lovely surprise. The owner was gracious and accommodating with an error I made in booking. The inn was walking distance to the little downtown. The spot is a perfect location for watching the ships go through the locks. Stay here if you get a chance!

Hello and thank you for your stay with us. Generally, guests are allowed to check-in much before 3.00 p.m.if the rooms are ready. It's not our policy to make guests wait right until the check-in time. Your patience to wait in the lobby until 3.15 p.m for check-in is much appreciated, thanks. Vacant spots at the parking lot mid afternoon do not decide the room occupancy. We thank you for the feedback, have a wonderful day!
