Stayed here for a couple of nights just this week. The door paint was peeling. Check in was confusing. They gave us keys, didn't even tell us our room number, and was sent on our way. We found the room, which was not fully cleaned. There was still garbage from the previous occupants! Had to confirm that the sheets were...

Even though the price is low it doesnt mean that the place should be dirty?! We requested to pay more just for us to move to a better room but according to the receptionist the hotel is full. "Vacancy" was posted on their front sign though. We will never go here ever. The whole people from the bus felt the...

I actually really enjoyed staying here from July 23 to 24. I booked a king jacuzzi suite and the room was extremely spacious. Check in was fast. Parking was free. The room was very clean as was the hot tub which was a bonus. The decor is a bit outdated but did the job. Bed was comfy and also came...

If you are just looking for a short stay and won't be in your room much than this hotel is ok. Stained carpets and out of date decor is what describes this place best. You get what you pay for so my expectations were not high. Good location for being near attractions.

Stayed here on a bus tour, this place was an absolute terrible place, the beds were hard, the towels were as thin as a bed sheet. The linen was not pressed, and the place smelt like old socks. During the day, there is rust on all steel work, garbage was thrown on the carpark area and left outside the bottom...

I'll be honest - This is a 1 star hotel (rightly so). If you are 25 or below and want to trash the place after a fun night out then its the right place to be. If you are an adult then you have no business doing business with this establishment. The only thing that went smoothly was check-in at...

Every time I am in Niagara Falls, which is twice a month, I always stayed at Universal Inn, and I always have a great experience. The location is very convenient as the Universal Inn is only a 5-minute walk to the new casino. I recommend the Universal Inn to anybody that is looking for a nice and quite place to...

My Husband & I love this hotel. We have stayed here more than 6 times over the past few years. Every time we feel like going to Niagara Falls we call Universal Inn & Suites to book our room.
