    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.

    ... The show was quite good. Considering they do it three times a week, you can understand they'll soon run out of money if they spend millions each time, but it was good as far as fireworks go. It lasted about 15 minutes, so once it finished we headed back to the B&B for showers and an early night: we had a bus to Buffalo early in the morning.

    ... now we are in Canada. Instead of everything being in both English and Spanish now it's in English and French. We upgraded our car to a SUV, braved the rain and drove had quite a boring drive down the freeway to Niagara, which has a population of 15,500. Thank goodness that by the time we arrived it had cleared up a little. The Falls are spectacular - there is the straight shaped one which is in USA and the horseshoe ones which are in Canada. You can get very ...

    ... Brian I would head downstairs to get us a sandwich and something to drink so I could start on my antibiotics. We had already decided to take it easy today as I need to rest today so that my bronchitis (self diagnosed) will hopefully get better, not worse.

    Down the 22 floors I went in the lift to Starbucks in the foyer of the hotel. Sorry, no sandwiches … head out to the Casino 5 mins walk and you’ll find a food court where you’ll get all ...

    ... Ice wine is made from 30x more grapes than it takes to make one bottle of normal wine, it can also be only be made after the grapes have been in temperatures of -10 to -14 for 3 consecutive nights and has to be picked at night. It is incredibly sweet but nice I thought. They suggested the best way to eat it was over vanilla ice cream. They were also plugging the fact that Dan Akroyd had created a line of wines after investing ...

    ... has been going back & forth over the Niagara whirlpool. It starts in Canada, crosses into & out of the USA in the air, before landing in Canada, then back again. I got back to the car, took Highway 420 to Queen Elizabeth Way, and carried on South to Fort Erie, a reconstructed fort on the shore of Lake Erie. The original changed hands twice in the 1812-1815 war, where the USA, knowing the Brits were pre-occupied with ...
