Rather than pay for the expensive hotels right next to the falls, I decided it was OK to be 20 miles away at this hotel. The top reason was the price - at $70 a night, it was hard to beat for a Saturday stay! The hotel is showing it's age a little, but it still is in decent shape, is clean, and is a good value. The staff was friendly, and check-in was easy. The neighborhood is very quiet - a few blocks off the interstate, with nothing really around it other than the Sonoma Grille and Lounge on the grounds. There is a pool, but it was closed for the season. They serve a small continental breakfast, but nothing really caught my eye. The only complaint is that my bathroom was in need of a makeover, but I got a good night of rest and would recommend it to anyone willing to drive a few miles to get to the falls.
I love to recommend this little place to all people interested on going to Niagara falls, this little motel is on the NY side ,, even though the canadian side has waaaay more to see, US side is a little cheaper and you can cross the border anyways,, so if you have rented a car this is your best choice
average price is 45 dls,,, they have an old fashion pepsi machine in the lot,,, great old painted postcard as souvenir in the room, is little, private, clean,, and owners are really nice , every morning they take fresh oj and croissants to your room and besides that they have a very old device to give you massage for a quarter...very 70´s....
We stayed here one night because I was drawn to the historical aspect of the building. We stayed in a suite, which was really comfortable and nicely decorated. The service was wonderful and we enjoyed our stay here very much. Oh, it's just a couple of blocks from the falls, in fact you can hear the falls from the hotel. Shopping, parking and dinning are all very near.

I booked in to this hotel in the down season and got a great rate. But the view was looking out the back of the hotel. For a small extra I was able to upgrade to a front room with an amazing view of the falls.
The room was huge with two double beds and a lounge suite right by the window looking down on the falls.
The casino is right next door for some night time entertainment!
If you want something slightly less bland than the average $23/night motel you can always stay in a bed and breakfast over in Niagara on the Lake. See my tip in the "must see" section for a description.
Being a native, I've never needed accommodations in Niagara Falls, so I can't recommend one. But I can tell you that Niagara Falls Blvd, the city's main artery, is littered with motels. Nothing special, but you can get a room for less than $25 a night. You can't beat that. If you want something a bit more upscale there are a few high-rises in the downtown area. Those go for about $85 a night. The casino is adding a hotel as well which should be ready in a year or so.
I do not recommend Fallsview Travelodge. I stayed there recently and it was the WORST experience.
- bugs in the rooms even when the windows are closed, smashed bugs on stained shower curtain and window
- soap left from previous occupant
- leaking facet with calcium deposits
- old blankets with holes and pilling
- final web price does not reflect check out price, they have 12% tax
- many more reasons, no room to fill out
Do not book 2-nights getaway. Food is not great with dirty dishes and coffee mugs.
They are cheap and walking distant to the falls. There is a view of Niagra Falls but the steam between the glass prevented a good view. The windows does not stay open and cannot open for more than 6 inches. Becareful if you get the room I stayed in, the window slams down, no springs.
The night in Casale's Tavern was pretty awful...
We were coming back from our road trip and wanted to stay one night in Niagara Falls to shop the next day. We got in late, and stayed at Casale's tavern because the hotel we had stayed in last had doubled its prices.
Casale's Tavern was cheap, 32 $, but what a night. The motel has a bar attached to it, a real dive bar, but I didn't really pay attention to that.
At about two in the morning voices from the next room woke us up. A couple was having a very bad fight. They were obviously totally drunk. It was so loud, you could hear every word, like you were in one room with them. It made me so angry but I was too afraid to say something - the guy sounded violent. This went on forever. We tried calling reception - no one there at night. We even sneaked across the parking lot to the bar to get help, but no one there anymore either.
So we listened to the fight more, hoping no one would get killed. when we were too angry and tired to care anymore about the shopping, we just took our things and left for Ithaca in the middle of the night.
A sleazy dive bar is attached. The walls are paper-thin.
Highly Recommended especially if you don't drive because of it's proximity to the Falls and Islands.
Cheap rates and walking distance to the Three Sisters Island, Cave of the Wind, Bridal Veil Falls and Horseshoe Falls.
Stay here one night. It pretty much looks like the postcard. It was neat and clean. The motel attendance were so nice and friendly too!

It is situated by the Gorge River and has a beautiful view of it.
I've always found that it's much cheaper to find a room on the Canadian side of the falls. The strong US Dollar helps.... There is more to do on that side anyway.
No special recommendations....
But if you want to book a hotel room with a breathtaking view of the Falls, then it HAS to be in one of the seven hotels located on the Canadian portion of Niagara Falls e.g. the Marriott, Sheraton or Ramada.
If you aren't fastidious, then there are plenty of accommodations to suit every individual's needs and budgets. Me? No, I didn't stay here overnight.
There are plenty of hotels in the area- a majority of them crappy inns or motels that are very overpriced. My recommendation- if for some reason you want to spend a night in Niagara Falls, find a hotel outside the Falls district.
$250 for a Falls view room. $190 normal room. 2-night packages with a $50 food credit will save you some money.
Rooms with outstanding Falls views. Any hotel that will give you a decent view of the Falls has to be on the Canadian side of the falls.
i had really hard time to find out an available room to stay even one night since most of rooms in well-known accomodation, such as holiday inn or the like, were all booked... and finally with some doubts, i made a phone call to the oakes inn from montreal and reserved a room for us three--mom, jay, my sister, and i...
twin room / one night / july.17
room charge : $198.00
room tax : $ 9.90
goods&sales tax : $13.86
total : $221.76
this might sound so weird, though, any restaurant in every accomodation i've ever stayed so far offers facinating waffle and pancakes... that's why i have them for my breakfast wherever i stay. you won't be blamed if you want to say, ' you are just entertaning a superstitous belief in them...' well... what can i say really? and why don't you have some pieces of waffle and pancake in the restaurant in the oakes inn?!?!
