    Great Packages, Great Place

    by

    I am pleased to recommend this property to anyone visiting Niagara Falls. My family and I had a chance to stay at the Skyline Inn this weekend and it prove to be a total relaxing and enjoyable experience.

    The staff is outstanding from the minute you arrive till you leave. They tend to your every whim at any time of the day.

    Their water park getaway is just incredible and totally worth the money. The best 150.00 I ever spent

  • Comfortable hotel but

    by

    The Skyline Inn ( not the Brock Skyline ) was very clean and comfortable. Every member of staff was friendly and helpful. Having an evening flight back to the Scotland we decided to keep our room on as there was no bathroom facilities at the hotel once you have checked out. My opinion is almost $58 for 3 hours was very expensive.

    Directions: Good Location

    Just ask

    by

    Real friendly staff.
    Don't be afraid to ask for a room overlooking the falls. Mention that you have come a long way to see the sights and you just might get a high priced room at a cheaper rate.

    Unique Quality: Fabulous views - if you get a room at the front.

    THE hotel to stay in

    by

    We stayed here in Feb 99, it was then called the Skyline Brock, although I believe that it has now changed its name to Brock Plaza.

    It is one of two hotels, almost facing the American Falls (on the Canadian side)

    Unique Quality: We opened our window, and could hear water - thats how close we were to the falls.

    Inside, the hotel was really cosy, and it was dressed elegantly, with old fashioned style furniture and it wasnt too big.

    The staff were so helpful, and the restaurant which is located on the top floor of the hotel served outstanding food.

    If you walk through the hotel next door, you go along a walkway and are inside the Casino, there were shops and a Pizza Hut.

This a very decent hotel and I recommend to somebody else. It's good family and couple. The water park is pretty enough to keep you busy on those days that you don't want to go out.

About the Niagara Falls Casinos

by niagarafalls101 about Casinos

When gambling was first introduced to the Niagara region back in the 1990's it was the general consensus that casinos would be our salvation in tough economic times.

Local manufacturing jobs were disappearing because of "globalization" and the Niagara Falls tourism industry, which never did produce much more that minimum wage jobs, was stagnant. We had to do something to stimulate our local economy and the answer was casinos!

Casinos will bring in a whole new type of tourist. People with money! They will come to gamble but when they arrive they will be so overcome by the incredible beauty of the local parkland and the awe-inspiring site of "the Falls" they will be motivated to: do some sightseeing; eat in the local restaurants; and patronize our shops!

Did it work? Yes and no!

Gamblers are here and spending money. Unfortunately, not much of their money is being spread around. They arrive at the casino/hotel, check-in, hit the slots or the craps table, eat in one of the casino restaurants, check out the view of "the Falls" from the restaurant window, shop in the casino boutiques, drink in one of the many casino bars, go back to their hotel room to relax/recover/sleep then leave the next morning.

YES, casinos are contributing to our local economy because many local businesses contract services to the casino operators and thousands of new jobs have been created. NO, because gamblers never seem to wander too far away from the casinos, the existence of the casinos isn't doing much to help local restaurants, motels, souvenir shops or any local tourist businesses other than the casinos and the hotels that surround them.

Of course casino gambling itself presents another problem to the locals. Most out-of-town visitors come to the Niagara Falls casinos to have a little fun, try their luck at the slots or Black Jack tables and win or lose (most likely lose) head back home and don't think about gambling again until their next vacation. This isn't the case with many of the local residence. When a casino is "just down the street", the temptation is great! Far too many locals have become addicted to gambling and have lost, or are in the process of losing, everything. Savings are gone, families broken apart, jobs lost, lives lost! BE WARNED!

About the Niagara Casinos

There are three casinos in Niagara Falls. Two in Niagara Falls, Ontario and one in Niagara Falls, New York.

Casino Niagara: The oldest and most casual (not too glitzy) is Casino Niagara in Niagara Falls, Ontario. They offer all the usual gaming facilities, slots table games and poker room, as well as a sports book. The amenities include restaurants, an all-you-can-eat buffet (best bang for your buck in Niagara Falls), bars and comedy club. The casino is located in the Clifton Hill area and surrounded by hotels i.e. Sheraton on the Falls, Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls-Fallsview Hotel and the Skyline Inn. Please note that under Province of Ontario Law, smoking is prohibited in the casino as well as restaurants and bars, in fact, the only place you can smoke is outside. The pit bosses can offer players some freebies such as a restaurant voucher for the buffet but NO FREE LIQUOR. You have to pay for your drinks!

Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort: The largest and most "Vegas" like casino (lots of sparkle and glitz) is located in the Fallsview area of Niagara Falls, Ontario. They offer the usual slots and table games with huge poker room and a VIP room for high rollers as well as bars, restaurants, all-you-can-eat-buffet (not to pricey with excellent food choices), a theatre/ballroom featuring first class entertainers and stage shows, boutiques and a patio overlooking "the Falls". The casino is part of a hotel/spa complex and is surrounded by several major hotels on Fallsview Avenue including the Hilton, Oaks, Marriott and Embassy Suites. Please note that under Province of Ontario Law, smoking is prohibited in the casino as well as restaurants and bars, in fact, the only place you can smoke is outside. The pit bosses can offer players some freebies such as a restaurant voucher for the buffet but NO FREE LIQUOR. You have to pay for your drinks!

Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel: Located in Niagara Falls, New York. I have only been to this casino twice and can't say I know much about it other than it has all the amenities a casino should have i.e. table games and slots. From what I've heard from other people, the buffet is outstanding and the the fact that you can smoke in the casino and drinks (liquor) are free sure is appealing. The following has been extracted from their website ?If you?re looking to get the most out of every visit to the Casino, then you'll love Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel. From the very latest slot machines to your favorite table games to world-class dining and entertainment, Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel is the real deal for real players.?

If you're planning a trip to Niagara to do a little gambling, please take some time to "smell the roses". This is a beautiful area with magnificent scenery, first-class tourist facilities and countless sites of historical importance to both Canadians and Americans dating back to and before the War of 1812.

Potential for a great budget inn

by A TripAdvisor Member

We just finished spending a nite at Skyline Inn. I think it is okay for the money but there are areas to watch out for.

The Inn is going through renovation. So, it is kind of dusty and messy in there. When we opened the door, we could smell fresh paint. There were no microwaves, no refrigerator and the some of the TV channel receptions were bad. At night, you could hear people walking upstairs and outside. There was no thermostat for the heater. The covered parking garage is wet and dark. The breakfast menu in Perkins, the attacked restaurant, is way overpriced.

On the positive side, the staff is friendly and helpful. The bathroom was just newly renovated and the location is convenient.

Not bad for the money - friendly staff

by A TripAdvisor Member

The Skyline Inn is currently constructing a large indoor waterpark so there's lots of noise during the day but it is quiet at night. The waterpark is to open in April or May of this year. The hotel was a great value - stop at a visitor's center before you arrive and book your stay at a discount. The only downside - the rate was so cheap that on the weekend the hotel was invaded by large groups of intoxicated college students.

Unfortunately...No

by TripAdvisor Member northerndynasty

Ok...when you've never stayed at a particular hotel/inn/motel, smart travelers read what others say...they add up the pros and the cons, and those who still want to take the "chance", do...and they summarize it like this:

There are two (maybe three) positive aspects going for this Inn. And objectively, they are: a) The outside overall presentation b) Location to all that Niagara Falls has to offer c) A trained and pleasant front-desk staff . After that, it really depends on the type of traveler you are. I, for one, am generally spoiled by the "Heavenly Bed" accomodations that some hotels offer. However, this was a trip on my own - no family this time - and primarily an over-nighter with most of my time spent in the Casino.

Relatively newer paint on the outside and a very clean lobby make the initial approach nice. Registration parking (free) right by the front-door is a god-send! The property is 45 steps (I counted) from the front door of Casino Niagara. The decor in the front lobby looks "fancy" but I bet you it's come from a previous (and true "fancy") hotel...I just have that feeling. Front desk staff are young, but respectful and trying. That's where my nicities end.

The room assigned to me was not ready by 3pm for check-in. However, a somewhat similar room was offered to me at the same price (fair enough). As you walk through odor-free hallways towards the room, you're thinking, hey, this ain't so bad. Step out in to the courtyard of the entrance to your room, and you'd think you'd just hit an abandoned town! See...you're drawn in by the outside...but what you didn't see on the inside is a whole different ballgame!

Use the dated-who-else-has-a-key-to-this-room door system, and this is where you gage the type of traveler you are. Two queen sized beds, with 1980's styled covers, that yes, are torn, atop beds that had concaved centers to them. Thankfully, no real disturbing odors, though. Sparsely appointed - small desk, 2 lamps (one that didn't work), a chair, night table, a phone that might have come from your home (no dial-up internet port here), and a clock-radio-alarm. TV...worked, had an apparent Internet capability at $13/24hrs use, and a joystick. No VCR; sorry. Bathroom: watch your step-up (where did they get this concept from??). Very VERY 80's...probably earlier. However, amidst the not-totally-clean tiling and yes, the original tub (which you could only accept as having mold-spots due to it's age), and the 1940's tap system, all functions of the bathroom did work. At least, it looked like whoever cleans the rooms gives it an effort. (please don't look up at the ceiling tiles) The age doesn't help. Carpeting - probably a few years old, but it appeared somewhat clean.

It was quiet...and the parking is darn cheap (compared to others - only $6 here a day); Perkins next door and the area is safe for local night travel. What can I say...the $129/night 2/queen room was probably not worth more than $75/night...but I survived without any long-term traumas.

But if you're used to the Heavenly Bed environment - you probably should be looking elsewhere.

OK for one night

by TripAdvisor Member arkadiyb

Th hotel was reasonably OK for one night, the view from the windows was relatively nice, and the couryard would be a nice place to relax with a glass of wine late at night without worrying about finding babysitters for kids. If only we had time to do it...

On the negative side, the dirty trick with charging you for parking even though free lot is across the road is not nice at all. On the other hand, when I needed to park the car after checkout, I was told about the free lot. They could have charged me 8 dollars more. So I guess the employees are nice people who have to follow a bad policy.

Continental breakfast would be very important out there, because the whole area is just one big money pump. Too bad it's not avaialble. Not even coffee maker in the room! You'll pay through the nose for food there. Check out Basel's on Victoria Road - it's about 5 minute drive from there, once you manage a U-turn, and may just be the best value in town. Lunch for 2 adults+2 kids - $36, and we did not need dinner that night.

Not what I expected...

by A TripAdvisor Member

Upon arrival this Inn looked nice, even the lobby. When we walked to the room, the courtyard also appeared nice. The room smelled pretty foul and I didn't feel real safe with the (to quote someone else's review) "who else has a key to this room" deal. The beds were not too bad, the blankets were pretty old and junky, as were the chairs in the room.
I thought that we got a real good deal booking through a cheaper travel company, but when I returned home, the $6.00ish parking that I had them put on my credit card, turned out somehow to be 40.00.....
It was not really a pleasant experience, I guess you get what you pay for.
