As I was searching for cheaper accomodations most of the motels along Lundy Lane (highway 20) didn't seem to be popping up on my searches as I don't remember seeing rates in the $40-60 range. Most of them are not within walking distance of the Falls but we saw a bus stop that people were waiting at or you can drive and park closer to the Falls, we saw rates starting at about $5 per day for parking.
I was able to get a stay at the Courtyard Marriot Hotel for $100 Canadian with taxes. Breakfast is included and the bonus offer of a $45 gift certificate at the Keg restaurant. These sound like stimulus packages (economy being down)
There were other offers, like a $50 chocolate gift basket
Family deals where for a little bit more money there would be attraction tickets as well.
I stayed here in November of 2008 while away working at a clients employee retreat. The resort is a bit of a drive from the Fall's, but if you're looking for a place to really get away, relax and enjoy yourself it's a good place to stay. Only about a ten or fifteen minute drive from the fall's - it's worth it for the accommodations.
It's a huge resort, with lots to do and great spa facilities (if I had, had the extra money at the time I definitely would've made use of it). The first room I was in was little, but still gorgeous. Up to date and clearly renovated recently. The bed was extremely comfy. Unfortunately, didn't end up spending an entire night there as the heater in the room broke and they moved me to a large suite with a fireplace and a massive bathroom. Was really quite nice.
My favorite was having small flat screens in the bathrooms. Since I was there for work I still had to get up early and was able to have my favorite morning program on the TV in the bathroom while I was getting ready for the day ahead.
Double occupancy rate is between $CAD 89.00 and $CAD 149.00

6 bedroom suites. Each is air-conditioned and features a deep, comfortable bed, sitting area, bath ensuite (most with Jacuzzi tubs), and romantic fireplace.
As they say Furnished and decorated with distinction private bedroom suites are designed to be "home away from home".
The place is a short walk to the falls and is situated in a very quiet neighborhood. The place is extremely beautiful with antique furniture and accessories.

Personally I have not stayed at any of these hostels as I lived in Niagara Falls for most of my life. I have seen them in passing and when taking friends on tours.
I hope you enjoy your stay in my city!
Hans and I made reservations at the QUALITY INN CLIFTON HILL because I like the location. Short walk to the Falls and lots of shops, restaurants and attractions.
The rooms were spacious, clean and had an in-room coffee-maker, T.V.
We booked the "Traveler's Discount" rate of $71.95 plus taxes ( $10.08).
We stayed here for one night. It's a little bit out of town, which is nice because it's more peaceful. We still walked to downtown though (about 1/2 hour). For $80 we had a nice room with ensuite bath. Breakfast was served in a nice dining room. The owners were really friendly and chatty and helpful in answering our questions. Plus, we ended up getting a bunch of Niagara coupons by booking online with the B&B organisation they belong to!
When I walked into our room I could hear the waters!
I opened the window and this was our view if I leant my head around!! It was amazing, I kept the window open just to listen!!
Oh, the restaurant overlooks the falls as well, book a table near to the window.
I highly recommend staying in Motels that are part of large American motel chains. The reason behind my recommendation is experience. I've been at Niagara Falls numerous times and staid at different places.
There are many motels at Niagara Falls. Most of them privately owned. Do NOT stay at those places. They drive up the prices in the summer time and will try to rip you off whenever they can! Plus they are not clean. Often furnished with old, worn out furniture and TVs. pay the little extra money for a better, bigger, cleaner motel room with air conditioning and a big screen TV. Plus safe parking for your car. I recommend Super-8, Days inn, Best Western and the other ones.
If you have tons of money to spend or you are on your honeymoon vacation, than stay in a five star ( ***** ) Hotel instead.
On this picture you can see the entrance of the Thunderbird Motel (Locally owned) we staid in a few years ago. Avoid this and other private motels if you can.
Look for these: Big screen TV, Air conditioning. Outside pool, Safe parking, quiet place. Friendly staff, clean rooms and bathrooms.
Holiday, Comfort Inns, lodges etc - all over the places and pretty expensive, too. If you really MUST stay the night here and you're on a budget - just get yourself away from the centre and you'll find plenty of modestly priced accommodations there.
There are all kinds of accommodations here to suit all budgets. When I went with my family we stayed in motels on Lundy's Lane, a historical area in it's own right.
When I go now I prefer to stay within walking distance.
Michael's Inn is a comfortable middle-of-the-range establishment, just a few minutes' walk from the Falls. Watching all that water pour over the Falls is bound to give you a thirst, so pop into the bar for a quick Labatt before dinner. Spacious rooms and a dependable restaurant make Michael's Inn an excellent place for a brief visit. Old Cliffie always stays here when he visits Niagara Falls - a look at his home page will reveal why!
This hotel and its sister property, the General Brock, have the best views of the falls. We like the Foxhead because it's a little closer, the rooms have balconies and it's more modern. The hotel is used for many tour groups from Asia, so there is a Japanese restaurant in the hotel!
