Days Inn at the Falls
Travel Blogs from Niagara Falls
Well, what can I say. We had a bit of a dramatic start to the day as we went in early, around 0630 to collect our bikes from the parking garage, Icon, across the road. Initially, when the hotel contacted them, they didn't want to take to bikes which meant we would not have stayed at the hotel. Then, they decided to take them and insisted that we …

The Maid of the Mist was very nice - no real crowds to speak of. If it were not for a big group of Russian tourists we would have nearly had it to our selves. Very dramatic to see the water rushing by.
However, the real surprise and highlight for us was the Cave of the Winds. This ...
After a sad goodbye with the Waglers we stopped at the St. Jacobs farmers market on our way to Niagara Falls. What a find that was!!! Super shopping for fresh produce....tomatoes, corn, pickled corn, raspberries, carrots, peppers, potatoes, bread, bread, more bread and bulk maple syrup directly from the Amish producer. We also found a stand for sausage rolls and meat pies so the kids were able to satisfy their cravings. Homemade butter ...

Oh but quickly before I finish!! on our flight out of Buffalo to Washington the pilot did a lower loop over the falls, and it was on our side of the plane, so we got to top off a perfect two days in Niagra with a close up by boat, underneath behind the falls, above on land ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Days Inn at the Falls Niagara Falls
Great rate...didn't expect much
We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. We payed $117.00 for 2 nights (this included all taxes). For what I paid, I think I got an amazing deal...sure it's not the best hotel, but then I didn't expect it to be..I think people expect way too much. If I expected to spend my time in the room, then I would have gone somewhere else, but I expected to be out most of the time. If you want superior, then pay the price. Bed was comfortable -- everything was clean and the people were very very helpful and nice... Would definitely stay here again. It was close to everything I wanted...
We called by phone the day before our stay and requested the rate and made a reservation. Upon arriving at the hotel, the rate was increased $20 per night. We complained but to no avail. The front desk manager and staff was very rude.
Frankly, this place was horrible
Easily the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. The place was dirty, and even the nonsmoking rooms absolutely reaked of smoke. The staff was nice enough, but the hotel is an absolute dungeon that was reminiscent of Cold War Russia. I doubt it can be remodeled; they should knock it down and start over.
I'm sorry to be brutally honest, but this place is a dump.
This hotel was terrible.
The people were rude,the hotel was dirty. I paid in cash and they also debited my account. They are trying top make 400.00 off of a one night stay.
OK, but not as nice as expected
This hotel was OK, but not a good value. The building has started showing it's age and wasn't real clean. The rooms were nice... for a Day's Inn. We had a spectacular view of a parking lot. It seems the only part of the building air conditioned are the rooms themselves. There is a Denny's on site but don't eat there; the food was very poor. The staff wasn't bad, but don't expect them to go out of their way to help you. If I ever go back to Niagara Falls, I am going to stay on the Canadian side for sure. I would not reccomend this hotel unless you can get a room very cheap.
january 28thru the 30th 2005, my boyfriend planned a getaway for us. The getaway had a big meaning to it, but when we arrived it was nothing we expected. The gentlman at the counter was the rudest man i have ever meant. He was short with us, would not let us see the room before we checked in his reply was "When you check in you'll see the room, even if you don't like the room your still going to pay for it." He was very unprofessional and almost chased us away. There was a security guard that helped us and took us to our room to see it, as we went up to the room we were amazed to see that the money we were paying was nothing we expected. The room was small and not so nice. The fireplace glass was so dirty you could not see the fire, the TV was older than we were not to mention you only have one station that worked and that was if you could get the remote to work, and the view is nothing it said it was. When you advertise a room with falls view you would expect to see the falls. The purpose of the getaway was for my boyfriend of six years was to ask me to marry him. If it wasen't for the fact that we had no idea if we were able to find another room because if we could have we would of. We made the best of what we had, but I will not return to this hotel. The only good thing about our stay is that my boyfriend of six years asked me to marry him and the security guard that talked us in to staying.
A wonderful experience
The Days Inn was perfect for our stay in Niagara Falls. No it isnt the Plaza Hotel, but the room was clean and the people were helpful and friendly there. Plus, it had 24 hour restaurant for us night owls. It is within a short distance from the falls and easy to navigate. The only complaint i have is the fitness center with only two stations that appear ancient and no treadmill!
Health club/pool area
Fumes from parking garage made working out imposible. Also no changing area near the pool. Pool looked nice, but would not avail myself of it, as I would not go from my room to pool dressed in suit. The food in adjoining rest. (Denny's) was bad, expensive, and not to Denny's usual standards.
Yikes. Glad to leave Days Inn at the Falls
Don't let the beautiful lobby fool you. This place is a real disappointment. Filthy carpet (corridor and room), small old bathrooms, ancient tvs. Very depressing.
Not happy with Days Inn
Travelled on the Friday the day after the black out. Stayed in the Days Inn in the New York State side next to the Rainbow Bridge. The environmen is not my style too dirty and seedy looking. The indoor pool looked nice but anyone walking by the hotle can have a clear view of the pool. The hotel had lots of business. It felt like Grand Central station in New York City. The lobby carpets was extremely dirty. Our room was very comfortable but the hallways were aweful. The room was very nicely air conditioned but the halls were not. The hallway carpets had large lumps due to the humidity. My husband and I would never stay there again. We only stayed for the one night instead of 7 nights. Booked a room at the Super 8 Motel in Canada.
