Historical Traveler Reviews Days Inn Clifton Hill Casino Niagara Falls
On July of 2003 a friend and i spent a couple of days in this hotel. We got a good deal in the heart of the summer season but that was all we got. When we were there, the pool was not opened and the staff were functional at best. I'm blind and my friend is visually impaired but despite that we were put in those motel like rooms where you have to climb stairs to get to. During the remainder of our stay, the staff offered no assistance whatsoever. Luckily, we managed to get around.
The restaurants on site were okay but i grew tired of paying $40 each morning for breakfast. We did have a nice meal at the fine dining establishment however which is the other restaurant on site.
Bottomline; if you are looking for a great rate, by all means stay here but at your own risk. the location of this property is it's greatest asset. Personally, I wouldn't touch it again with a ten foot pole. On January of 2004 I stayed two nights at the Sheraton on the Falls; what a world of difference! Chehck out my review by clicking on that property's name. obviously, when it comes to hotels, four stars and up is the way to go.
Avoid this place!!!!
If you are looking for a nice place to relax...don't stop here...just keep driving! Just yesterday we returned from a two day "ordeal" at the Days Inn Clifton Hill Casino Hotel and we will never set foot in that place again! Rooms were hard to get to, lots of steps in every direction. Swimming pool was in the main building which meant you had to walk across the parking lot to get there. Worst of all was the the clientele which stayed there. The room below ours was rented to a rowdy group of beer drinking, loud cursing guys who stayed up (and outside their door) all night drinking, yelling, screaming, kicking doors, throwing beer cans and causing problems for anyone wanting to rest or sleep. We contacted management who failed to do anything about it.
After this went on all night, some other hotel guests must have gotten fed up because the police was called and we heard nothing but swearing and yelling. Finally it was quiet. However, the noise and drinking began anew the following morning and evening and even after we contacted the manager AGAIN, nothing was done. The managers/desk staff were totally inept in handling this problem situation and our long awaited getaway turned into a hellish experience. When we left the following morning, we did notice quite a few weird characters checking in to the hotel so maybe management is comfortable dealing with undesirables. We will certainly NEVER RECOMMEND THIS AWFUL PLACE TO ANYONE!
Great family hotel
I just read the last couple of reviews and just had to put in MY 2 cents. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and obviously the guest that wrote the last review did not enjoy their stay as we did. Nor did they have as great a room as we did. I guess you get what you pay for. How can you expect all the luxuries of a nice brand new hotel when you are paying under $40 Canadian a night? However... we paid only $55 Canadian and had a brand new beautiful room with all new funriture and a large balcony. It was spacious and clean and just all-around great. They have a indoor pool and jacuzzi, and the hotel is right at the top of Clifton Hill and SO close to all the attractions. There's wax museums and rides, mini golf and midway games for the kids (and the adults too!) all within a 3 minute walk from your door. Tell me that's not perfect for a family location! And with 2 restaurants right onsite, you can relax after a long day of walking and playing. Our family (my wife and I, and our 2 small boys) will definately be back. It's a great hotel. Give it a try. You'll see for yourself.
Excellent location - stay in main building for excellent rooms
We stayed at the Days Inn Clifton Hill Casino, Nigara Falls, Ontario in August 2003. This hotel was in a great location if you want to park your car and never have to move it the whole time you are in Niagara Falls, The hotel is a few blocks from the Falls, the bridge to US side, restaurants, amusements on Clifton Hill and across from the Casino. We were not happy with the room (motel style in back) and moved into the main building which was brand new and very spacious. When I complained about not receiving the same discount on the new room, I was originally told I could not receive it. Several weeks later Days Inn sent me a refund check so I ended up paying the same amount for the suite as I would have in the motel room.
We stayed at the Days Inn Clifton Casino with two adults and three kids in one room, and two adults in a second room. I got a super great deal on this hotel through an online site! If anything, we were surprised and SO pleased to pay under $40 for each room - we really couldn't believe it!
When we first got there, we were so happy that it was so close to Clifton Hill - totally within walking distance - even with small children. That was good! And the hotel looked beautiful! All brand new - very clean. Then we checked in and they gave us the room keys. You can imagine our disappointment to see these rooms. They weren't in the "new" part of the building - they were behind the building. Obviously an old old old hotel from years ago or something. They were all ground rooms, small, dark and junky. The screens in the windows were torn, and the window in the bathroom looked out into a scary old little alley.
Plus, they totally did not look secure at all! The doors were old, and tons of chipping paint around it. Everything looked leftover from the 70's. We were very not happy about it.
However, it WAS worth the great price we paid, since we only were going to be sleeping there. I just didn't like feeling that we were 'pushed' to the 'bad' part of the hotel, because we paid such a low price.
I would not recommend this hotel if you are going to be spending much time in your room, or like the comforts and conviences of newer hotels.
They did have a pool, but personally, I could not get over the fact that the window-walls around the pool area were directly looking in to the parking lot and public area. Plus, since we were in the back part of the building, we had to walk outside in our swimsuits before we got to the pool.
Again, if you are getting a great deal on the room, and don't really care much about staying in a hotel itself, and are really out to have fun visiting around Niagara Falls, then I would recommend it. If you are looking for a cozy, family hotel with great views of the Falls, I would probably advise against it.
Just my two cents!
Very enjoyable stay
We had the pleasure of staying at the Days Inn Clifton Hill and thoroughly enjoyed it. The family suite was one of the largest rooms we have ever stayed in. We had 4 adults and 1 child in the room and were never crowded. The 2 night package with the meals included was the best value of all of the hotels we have stayed in while visiting Niagara Falls. The hotel is close enough to everything that you can park your car and walk. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would stay there again.
It was alrite!`
The overall impression of the hotel was horrible besides the room. The room was nice. The hotel management were very rude to me and my friends. We are only 19 and were coming for the weekend. I paid 66 dollars for a room when my friends who are guys paid 55 for a family suite. The pool looks like crap. Personally I wouldnt ever swim in that pool ever. It looked disgusting and the walls around it are so not private. You have the entire hotel as well as parking lot looking in on you. Not nice at all. Besides the fact that our balconywas beautiful at nite there was such a view of everything in Niagara Falls. It was also nice to have an applebees right inside the hotel. With it being -2 degrees we were right at home at the bar at Applebees. If I would say anything about this hotel it would be, go there if your kids, its definitley not a family enviroment hotel. go to Hampton Inn down the road much more of a family kind of hotel.
We just spent a weekend at this hotel and we were very pleased with our stay. We booked a family suite for our family and were very surprised with the room when we got there. This room was the biggest suite we ever stayed in. It was 2 full sized rooms. Great for a family. We walked to Clifton Hill not even 2 minutes. It is just across from the Casino(we couldn't go with kids). This is a brand new hotel with a great swimming pool and easy to get around.
Beautiful Brand New Hotel...
My husband and I just returned from a long road-trip through Canada and had the opportunity to spend a few days in the wonderful city of Niagara Falls. We chose this hotel because, as we were strolling down the tourist area, we saw this beautiful BRAND NEW hotel with a great restaurant right on the premises. i have honestly never seen such a nice Days Inn in all of our travels. And it's in the perfect location - right across from the casino and SO close to the falls and all of the attractions. Both the hotel and the rooms are beautiful (we booked the standard room with a balcony), the staff was very helpful and friendly, and i would recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone.
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. It was awful. The door to the hotel room stuck so bad that it was difficult to open without really kicking it. A real safety issue in case of fire. The room was dirty. Our only regret was that we paid for two nights before seeing the room. Avoid this place if at all possible.

... In the end, I could have had another 30 min, because we took a little while to get going.
We bought a "WeGo" bus pass which will hopefully be good tomorrow as well given we only went three stops before getting off at Hornblower cruises to do the Whirlpool tour. On the American side, this is known as Maid of the Mist. This was exhilarating. Getting right up to both the American falls and the Canadian "Horseshoe" Falls and getting showered by the mist. The Tour supplies ...
... that opened his house to travellers for a discretional fee. This was a mistake as not only was the neighbourhood pretty intimidating but the place was poorly equipped to house the amount of travellers that were there and it never felt very welcoming. We therefore left early next day to see the remainder of Pittsburgh's industrial factories and then hit the road until we reached the impressive Niagara Falls where we met Alex's uncle on the Canadian side. He showed us the ...
Planning to spend some time hitting some of the places we have wanted to visit more in the past and just never have, such as Savannah and St. Augustine.
And from there... The bad news is that although our first choice for this trip was Namibia and Botswana, sadly it is just not in the cards for this year. The good news is that we will be travelling to another spot we've always wanted to go ...
... and we waited.
While waiting in the airport terminal, we were all shocked at the new reports on the TV about the blizzard Hercules and how people had already died and then they declared a state of emergency!!! My god, we really thought what we were experiencing was pretty normal in winter in NYC and that's when I realised what we did earlier trying to get to the pick up point was maybe a bit crazy - but we were ok and everyone waiting for the plane ...
... Horsehoe Falls and a third one I can't remember. (Surprise!) I don't think we really got the scope of their size because we were looking down on them. We'll see what it's like from the boat tomorrow. Stopped for pizza on our way back. First pizza the whole trip! Gotta be a record. Carol will tell you all about our tour tomorrow nite. Meanwhile, I'm gonna label a few pics and hit the hay. Keep us in your Thots, as we keep you all in ours. Really miss you, Mr G! Love to all. ...
