... running down (from 70ft up) and get some photos - by this stage we could see a bit of both sides of the horseshoe but the middle was still blocked with mist. We caught the venicular car up to our hotel and grabbed a hot drink before heading up to the room to dry off a little before heading our again.
The car got brought around and we piled in and headed to the border to cross back to the American side. From this side we were able to view The ...
... is unbelievable you are mesmerized. The pressure of the water has erroded the falls which have reseded or fallen away by seven miles since first dicovered by a french explorer Father Hennepin in 1678. We went in the main centre to do our first tour Journey Behind the Falls (they swipe your Adventure Pass you wear around your neck). You get in a lift and go down about 170ft through tunnels to see glimpses of the water ...
... for the trip), we headed to Niagara Falls. We had planned to stop at both the American and the Canadian side and had decided to hit the Canadian side first. I guess I forgot just how much of a tourist attraction the falls actually are. It was a Monday and yet, the line of cars to even cross the border was really, really long. I did not actually look at the clock to see how long we sat there, but it was a long time. I probably should ...
... because they are so cool! Most features are the same as any normal gas vehicle, on the surface (radio, AC, cup-holders) but when it comes to the mechanics--everything changes: the silent electric mode, fuel we save, the exciting moments of watching the battery charge when you go downhill! We've been averaging about 45-50 miles/gallon and its been so fun and different to turn ...
... a bad viewing place. However, I did work myself to the top deck and almost to the very front – it pays to be big and tall at times. Though we were stuffed like sardines on this boat and could hardly move. As we got close to the base of the falls it got very windy with a ton of spray hitting us. Everyone’s blue ponchos were going all over the place which made it hard at times to take pictures or videos. Soon you could not even take pictures as the spray turned into an ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Inn Fallsview Niagara Falls
Just a quick note to explain the truth about the hotel. It is very new, (opened Aug/2006). It is very clean and well maintained, but of course, it is new! I don't know how anyone could be disappointed with this hotel, other than if they are looking for the floor to ceiling windows, with a view of the falls. If it's a view of the falls you must have, than don't stay here, inspite of the name. Others that have complained about the rates, you must bear in mind, this is a tourist destination. You are going to get a wide variance in prices according to the season, and night of the week. I stayed here on a Thursday nite in Feb/2007 for $50 cdn. I'm sure that weekend nites in the summer, the rate would be triple that, and probably still a good value.
Good New Hotel - don't bother with falls view room
Very new hotel less than a year old so every thing clean and modern. Conveniently located near the top of the incline railway, the large casino and the Skylon tower. Large car park but a charge for using it despite there only being about 8 cars in it. Small heated indoor pool. There is a premium ($9 i think) for a room with a falls view but don't bother (see photo)
We visited Niagara at the late October, since late October is not a high season we have not done any reservation, when we arrived at the front desk of the hotel, we where given the price which was four (4) times more than the average price I could get on the internet if we would book it before in the same hotel. Average price was 82$ at the time and we where charged 309$. We where tired so we took it.... maybe our fault, we could not consult internet at that time and we did not know the average booking price.
We recently stayed at this hotel, great choice! The hotel is only about 3-4 months old. The staff were very helpful and friendly, the location was ideal.
Talk about clean . . . . this place was immaculate and we couldn't have been treated better. Front desk staff were friendly and most helpful. We had lots of questions about places to eat and things to see. Although only two of us were staying at this hotel they made a special effort to make a get-together for nine of us comfortable by bringing in extra chairs / glasses etc.
Beware of price
Price seemed high for the back of the building with a view of the parking lot.
Facility is new and clean but were disappointed by the total lack of any view, attitude of front desk staff and parking charge of $9/CDN.
Price was higher than anticipated but the location of hotel was good.
Loved Niagara Falls but would definitely stay some where else next time.
We've been travelling to Niagara Falls now for about 17 years, about 3 to 4 times a year. My wife and I have tried various places through out the years, our AAA agent reccomended the all new Comfort Inn, because of their "Grand Opening Special". The indoor pool opened on the second day of our stay and let me tell you, it was amazing. The proximity to everything such as the falls, attractions, restaurants, couldn't have been better. We parked onsite at the hotel and were within walking distance to everything, it was 9 CDN to park but thats cheap compared to everywhere else. The casino was directly across the street and so were the horse shoe falls and their onsite restaurant "World Famous My Cousin Vinnys" was unbelieveable, the entertainment was top notch, and the food was excellent. Would reccomend to anyone looking for a great time in the falls.
Not bad for the price
Please don't let the name fool you. It has a partial view of the Niagara river from the top floors which is down a street next to the Embassy Suites.
My wife and I were here for a three day vacation on the way to Toronto. It's a centrally located hotel but the view is atrocious if you consider the fact you must pay extra for it.
If you want a good comfortable room in Niagara Falls for a "decent" price, it's an excellent place but if you truly want a good view of the falls; Go to someplace else like the Radisson or the Embassy Suites.
The price is suspect if you consider what they think as being Fallsview but as a whole, it's not that bad considering the going rate. I think the parking cost at 9/CDN was a little much but again, going rate.
Recently came back from a four day trip to Niagara Falls. We stayed at the Fallsview Comfort Inn and found it to be "new", but not ready to really be opened yet. I saw a "special" in the AAA magazine, but of course they no longer had "that deal available" even though I called 2 days after the magazine arrived. We had to wait 2 hours to get our room, The elevator did not work correctly and of course we were on the 8th floor to enjoy "the view from our balcony". The balcony turned out to be 9 inches of platform outside of our sliding glass door. (Hint: do not take any room ending in 01 or 10 or you will find yourself with the "mini balcony". The other balconies although small were adequate. The door to the room did not shut properly, The sliding glass door to our "mini balcony" did not lock, The phone did not work, The "new pool and hot tub" were not ready even though we were told they would be on numerous ocassions, The outdoor hot tub was extremely cool, The front desk people did not have a clue as to what they were doing, parking was $9.00 per day( Hint: park at the casino...free with a players card). And to top it off we were over charged about $50.00 more than we were quoted which could not be adjusted because "that's the right price". If it seems too good to be true it probably is!. Niagara itself was wonderful...the "cave of the winds" was a great attraction and only cost 10.00...don't miss this ! The U.S. side except for goat island was dismal, the casino was tight, The aquarium was embarrassingly small . I love Niagara, but will NEVER again stay at the Fallsview Comfort Inn...You would be wise to do the same!!!!
