This is a no-frills, family friendly hotel within easy walking distance to the Falls. It's exactly what you'd expect for the price.
Rooms are outdated to the point of being kind of retro-funky. However, they are well-designed for families with a dressing area outside the bathroom, an extra sink outside of the washroom, and plenty of closet and luggage storage space.
The indoor pool is small but well-maintained with a lifeguard on staff. There's also a sauna, which was a nice surprise for us.
There is a decent breakfast selection--cereal, fresh fruit, bagels and muffins...the usual suspects. The attendant went out of her way to be helpful and make sure everyone had enuogh of what they wanted.
The desk staff was welcoming and extremely helpful with directions, restaurant recommendations, etc.
You can't see the Falls from any of the rooms--in fact, I don't think you can see them from any hotels on the American Side.
