      Historical Traveler Reviews Michael's Inn By The Falls Niagara Falls

      Close to it all!


      Michael's Inn is a great bargain, worth more than the money you have to pay. The people are friendly. Yeah, the view isn't all that great, but with close access to everything...that's all you are missing!

      Aston michael s hotel


      we recentlly stayed at the aston michaels hotel in niagara ontario, i just cannot praise this hotel enough, the staff will go out of there way to make you feel comfortable, the rooms are absolutely spotless, we stopped there for nine nights from the 10th december , and could not fault it.we will choose this hotel again on our next visit to canada as it is situated in an excellent position for the falls, if you have a need to use a wheelchair there are not any gradients to overcome to get to the falls.the dining room offers an excellent fare, and the service is as excellent as the food. --- top marks from us. ok so the hotel is not new , but dont let that put you off staying there. in all an excellent base.

      Quirky !


      This was the cleanest hotel room I think I've ever stayed in! How they manage to keep a hotel this clean I don't know despite the fact that the place hasn't been updated for perhaps 30 years! The decor is straight out of the 1970's (and maybe that's not so bad?). The staff were efficient, but not over-freindly, or particularly curteous. The restaurant serves fuel, rather than particularly good food. But, remember that this is one of the biggest tourist areas in North America - so you maybe don't expect high quality. The view of the falls is perhaps a misleading claim, yes, you can just, just see the American falls under the Rainbow bridge from the hotel lobby, but I doubt you can from any of the rooms. A fair, budget hotel, in a highly competative area

      Save your money


      Save your money, the only view we had was of the hotel sign and the lights on it that flickered all nite long. Staff was not very helpful, the room and the hotel need a facelift.

      Like the convenience


      We stayed at Michaels Inn last summer & the room was clean and fine..We liked the fact that we were close to everything and could walk.

      Everyone was very nice and helpful. I have AAA & when checking out they never applied my discount so after I got home, 2+ hours away, I called and it was taken care of immediately. I recently stayed at the Marriott Fallsview (July 2003) it was beautiful and expensive with nice view of the falls but if I go again, I will not hesitate to stay at Michaels Inn again.

      Very nice older style hotel


      The rooms are very clean and well-appointed. The balconies overlook the river and provide a beautiful view. The food in the restaurant is great and the waiters are very efficient and remembered us from our visit two months earlier! It is an older style hotel but the service is wonderful (they insist upon opening the door evertime you enter) and I won't stay anywhere else in Niagara Falls. Also, very close to the casino.

      A good bargain


      In need of an update but clean and service orientated. Free parking and within walking distance to everything. Good food as well.

      I won't go anywhere else.


      Canada isn't known for glamorous hotels on the strips, but I have to

      say Michael's Inn is the best I've been to. I go to Niagara Falls quite

      often, and I've stayed everwhere from The Days Inn to the little roach

      motels for "a penny". I made a decision after trying the others that

      I'd only stay at Michael's from now on--and I have. I like it. There's

      never been too much noise, or bothersome guests. The service desk is

      very helpful. The restaurant has not only edible food (compared to some

      of the other hotels) but it's quite delicious. I can't complain about

      the room prices either. It's not the best, but it's no where near scum,

      and I feel I pay the right amount...Now as for your honeymoon

      hotel...Maybe you shouldn't be sleeping in the heart of Niagara Falls

      if you wanted that much privacy and ---! I love Michael's and I

      constantly recommend it to all my friends and family.



      The prices are great! The rooms are wonderful and spacious. I loved the pool. Our balcony had some broken glass on it and plastic chairs...but that was the only draw back... It's great for families.

      The worst hotel I have ever experienced


      On our honeymoon we stayed at Michael's Inn. The sheets on the bed were at least 10 year old - gray and dingy. The chair seat broke through when I sat in it - I only weigh 158 pounds. The Great view they boost of is an out right lie. The only way we could see the falls is if we leaned out our window (because the balconies they advertised do not exist)and look under the bridge to see them. The service was terrible and the people when confronted with the situation said take it or leave it. No refund of our $140 it we left. Our advice is to avoid Michael's Inn at all costs and notify all your friends.

      If you have any enemies, recommend it highly.

      ... US falls. If you only have time or money for one activity, I would make it Cave of the Winds trip. There is no time limit. You are free to walk around there for as long as you like. The cost for this walk was less than the Canadian tunnel walk too. My hands and feet were quite cold by the time we had finished.

      The Cave of the Winds walk is via a series of wooden steps and platforms which are removed every late autumn and replaced after the winter. The boards ...

      One of the highlights of my trip to Canada was Niagara Falls. Probably it's the most famous waterfalls of the world and I was eager to see it for a long time. So as soon as I arrived in Toronto, I checked up on a weather forecast and chose a day to go there and planed everything else after that. Besides, I picked out the most popular tour from Toronto. Unfortunately, however, the tour didn't live up to my expectation.

      Anyway, they were scheduled to ...

      Today we went to Niagra Falls. We met Aunt Meridith, Uncle Ron, Aunt Barb, Cousin Josh and Suzie at the park and ride where we left our rental and hopped a ride with Josh.

      Walked upstream to cross the bridge over to Goat Island which I circumnavigated on foot...very pretty with lovely woods and trees and squirrels.

      ... how I feel about road trips, there wasn't much to see on our way. I was drifting in and out of consciousness and I thought I saw a huge alien tower out the corner of my eye. I sit straight up. Oh my goodness, there were hundreds of these huge, white tall fans everywhere. I must say I was frightened. I'm so glad it was daylight, I can't imagine seeing that at night. I searched on my phone and ...
