Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Inn The Pointe Niagara Falls
Best on the New York Side
We arrived very early, far before check-in, but the staff offered us the first avil room which was excellent. We were given great tips on the local sites, and where to eat during the off-season.
The Hotel is just steps away from the Falls, and several hikeing trails.
Only negative about the entire trip was the 60 dollars charged for the trip from BUF to the Hotel. The return trip we shared with another couple and that made it more affordable.
The hotel was clean, the staff was extremely friendly,and if spending a day or two on the N.Y. side, I'd highly recommend them.
Decided to stay on USA side for Labor Day weekend trip to the falls. You can walk from the hotel to every attraction on the USA side - and the rainbow bridge to Canada - in less than five minutes. Granted, other than niagara falls national park, the USA side is a pretty weak tourist destination. However, it's just a 10 minute walk over to Canada where you get the full view plus tons of tourist activities, casinos and nightlife.
The rooms here are large and clean but don't expect anything even resembling luxury. The breakfast is decent, but they serve it down in the catacombs and it's as do-it-yourself as they come. That said, you get a good room with free parking in the middle of everything.
Finally, for what you will pay at this hotel you would be lucky to find a musty 1950's era motel with shag carpets on the canadian side.
You have got to stay at this hotel it is grrrrrreat!!!
This hotel was the bomb. Very centrally located. Close to everything. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Big room. Great amenities. Very safe neighborhood. Word to people traveling there however, check in at this hotel very nice but make sure you bring plenty of money because there are not a whole lot of restaurants around and those one that are close are pretty expensive. The cheapest cheeseburger is ten dollars. Has nothing to do with hotel but just a word of caution to fellow travelers.
Decent but needs work
Our college group was attending a conference in Syracuse but we made an overnight trip to Niagara Falls. We had to limit our sightseeing to the American side. We were able to get some decent views of the Falls, though.
The best part of the hotel is definitely the location. It is within walking distance to Niagara Falls State Park and all of the best lookout points. Our room itself was pretty clean but the AC was unplugged, the lights by the beds did not work, and the shower drain was broken. The hotel is connected to a tacky tourist complex and similar shops are located in the area. The better attractions, hotels, restaurants, views, etc. are on the Canadian side but be sure to bring proper credentials to travel to Canada and to get back to the US. Some of our group did not, so we could not explore the Canadian side. Not a bad place to stay but other Choice Hotels I've stayed at have been better.
We staid at this hotel for on night last week. I liked the room very much. It was large and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Our room was in the 6th floor so that we could see the spray of the falls. The location was very good. You could walk over the bridge on the canadian site (app. 10 minutes) where the hole nightlife goes on. The continental breakfast was opulent. This was for sure one of our best hotels while our holidays.
This hotel disappointed us! The hotel in general, and our room in particular, were not very clean. We entered our room in the dark - the light bulb in the entrance hall was burned out - and the toilet was running on. Luckily, my husband fixed the toilet or else we were prepared to ask for another room. There was no fridge in the room; a rarity in this day and age.
Our visit was off-season (mid-Oct.), so many of the walk-to attractions were closed at night. The area is run down and was quite deserted the night we were there. The Hard Rock Cafe is fun and an easy walk from the hotel, although we found the staff indifferent and even slightly rude.
On the plus side, the king sized bed was very comfortable, and the continental breakfast is very good, but would not stay here again. To be fair, the entire area needs a good, healthy make-over, not just this hotel.
Great hotel, wonderful location, great breakfast
I reserved two rooms 4 of us and stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms were large and to our pleasant surprise interconnected. So it turned out to be a 2 bdr 2bath suite. The rooms were clean and there was good service.
The location of the hotel is wonderful, you can walk 500 feet to a bunch of shops selling food and entertainment stuff (putt-putt golf, hot balloon tour, toy car racing etc) and will keep kids entertained.
The breakfast is great (boiled eggs, cereal, waffle, fruits) etc and of value. There are available conference rooms for parties etc.
The front desk is helpful and the place is just wonderful. Loved it.
After staying in 2 hotels in as many days, I sure wished I had booked this hotel from the get go!
The staff was very friendly and the location is wonderful. Within walking distance to the Rainbow Bridge/Canada and the Niagra Falls State Park (it's a MUST to visit). This hotel is listed as a "gold medal" winner, although I have stayed at nicer gold medal winners. To me it would qualify as a "silver medal" winner.
The "tourist trap" of vendors around the hotel is your usual, but past them is the best of a quiet, relaxing trip. We walked to Canada and didn't have to fight the long traffic lines at customs.
I met a friend that was on our tour group who was staying at the Howard Johnson's and she said she will stay at the hotel in the future.
The beds were very comfortable and the view was outstanding! If you can overlook the slightly dirty/stained hall floors and a little musty smell in the rooms, you should be satisfied.
Good base for Niagara activities
I went to Niagara Falls recently to celebrate a five year anniversary. We stayed at Comfort Inn the Pointe, and had a very nice stay. The rooms are standard hotel rooms. the beds were very comfortable, on the firm side. The room and the bathroom were very clean. The window in the room opened, and you could hear the roar of the river rapids and Niagara falls. Niagara State Park is literally across the street. The falls are a short walk away, as is the Rainbow bridge.
The hotel has a nice (but carb heavy) breakfast buffet.
I agree with the previous reviewer; it is hard to find a dinner place on the American side. We checked out the restaurant that overlooks the falls on the american side and were suprised to find it closed on a Friday nite. We ended up having a later snack at Denny's instead.
If you are planning on going to Niagara Falls, Comfort Inn the Pointe is a really good base for your activities.
Nice hotel and good time
We went to Niagara Falls from May 6-9th and stayed at the Comfort Inn at the Pointe. Nice hotel and close to a lot. Walk to Canada was 10 minutes and the state park it just minutes away too. Breakfast is good and the rooms are nice. Only beef about the New York side is that there are hardly any restaurants to eat at??!! We were shocked and surprised that we ended up eating at the Hard Rock (good food though) because that was pretty much it! Most of the city is literally ghetto and very run down, it is very sad. The only thing it has going for them is the Seneca Casino and the National Park Goat Island (which is fantastic). The CI at the Pointe is within all of these things, it's the nicest two block there. Very quaint. But like I said, go into the city more and its really run down. There is just no were to eat or shop on this side. The Canadian side is fun, very pricey. We loved the Casino Niagara and liked it better than the Seneca Casino in NY. We thought the guests were very rude in the Seneca compared to Canada. We liked the Canadian side and had stayed on that side the previous time we went. Cant say much else went bad except for the lack of restaurants and food on the NY Side. There is a buffet at the Seneca casino that is FANTASTIC! But word of advice, if you plan to eat it make reservations EARLY. They don't take them over the phone either, you have to go there and make them. We went at 630 and couldn't eat until 1030. Worth the wait but wish we would have known. If you want a quiet weekend, stay at the Pointe (and its only a short walk to Canada). If you want a more happening atmosphere, stay on the Canadian site. That's just my opinion from my two visits and comparisons. Would love to go back a third, the falls are always a good time.

... our passports so couldn't go on the Canadian side which we had been told was even better....maybe 3am starts are not the best for remembering things!!
We walked around for a while and just figured out where to buy tickets for the activities we wanted to do and then decided to go get a table and wait for our friends. Hard Rock was pretty cool and Darren enjoyed looking at all of the memorabilia...we had a really nice lunch and it was great catching up ...
... The butterflies are gorgeous, the blue ones that never seem to land were our favourite, there were even black ones that look like they are cut from velvet and some species were the size of my hand! Next stop is the Bird Kingdom, every kind of bird imaginable in a lush setting of greenery, there was also some insects and reptiles to view also. By the way, everything Ciera and I chose to do today were the things ...
... the tunnel tour worthwhile but by the time we'd finished it was getting quite frigid and we were glad to get back to the warm hotel. The Embassy Suites are owned by Hilton and they'd given us vouchers for a complimentary drink before dinner. Jarn's beer and my wine spritzer, both served in plastic cups, confirmed the opinion we'd formed of Hilton in our NY stay, not bad but tacky at times - either Paris has a hand in their operations or it runs in the family. Dinner was ...
When we woke up we walked down to look at the falls and went on a boat ride called maid of the mist. I could not take many photos when we were nearly under the falls as there was so much water…We got on the boat and went right up to horseshoe falls but I could not take many photos as there was so much water…. We saw someone singing like Elvis Presley near the pier when we got off the boat.
After that we went to have a look at a house that had been ...
... staff quarters). I take a walk the Disney land that is Main Street to the falls and am greeted with the astounding Niagara Falls and views to America. lunch in the park by the falls and back to the hostel to pick up the bike and take a quick ride up to the whirlpool. I get sidetracked talking to the hostel owner who gives me lots of tips on what to check out in the area. The hostel has a great vibe and I meet heaps of people. That night we head out for drinks and I meet Mark and ...
