Historical Traveler Reviews Best Days Hotel Niagara Falls
We stayed here when a neighboring property was overbooked, so we were sent here. We waited in line to check-in for 30 mins. while 1 front desk clerk helped a line literally out the door. This was happening while a gentleman that appeared to be the manager was visbile in the back office!! The first room we went to had a horrble odor of mold and mildew. The 2nd, much smaller than the 1st(we had to turn sideways to even get past a table inside the front door. It then took us 3 1/2 hrs. to receive one that was ok. Then the ice machine on our side of the hotel was broken. The pool was so cold, my kids wouldn't even swim in it. Had to call for towels every day of my stay(we would recieve 1-2 every day with 2 adults and 2 kids in the room,... Will not return!!
Stayed at this Hotel for three nights and was quite happy. Our room overlooked the gorge. Room was comfortable and clean and of a good size. Courtesy bus took us to heart of Niagara every hour. Swimming pool inside is of a good size and clean. Wouldnt hesitate to recommend this hotel if a quieter location was wanted instead of the heart of Niagara.
You pay for what you get
My buddy and I just spent May 25-28/04 at the Days Inn North of the falls. We were there on a 4 day golfing vacation. While the price was good @ 44.00 per night, you do get what you pay for.
They advertise you get HBO, well that's about all you do get. The TV stations run from 2-13 only. If you're lucky you'll receive HBO and maybe 2 other station that are actually watchable. The other 9 stations are snowy and static. They do not have cable, just an antenna.
The shower head is a laugh. All you could get is a fine mist at best. The toilet would constantly run on, even after a repair person had replaced a part.
The lady at the lobby desk was not the pleasant personality you're use to being greated by. She was very abrupt and never even cracked a smile. On the third day there, the room key card did not work. We went to see her and she said it was only programmed for 2 nights, even though we we booked for 3 nights. She reprogramed the cards and handed them back without any apology.
On a positive note, the pool was large and clean and the water warm. However, if you're staying in a smoking room, you'll need to walk through the parking lot, into the lobby, up the staircase to the 2nd floor and down the hall, to get to the pool.
This is the second Days Inn I've stayed at in as many years and did not enjoy my stay at either hotel.
This place was a nice getaway to unwind after spending the days in Niagara Falls and Niagara on the Lake. The fireplace was a nice feature during a colder than normal March break. The free shuttle service to the heart of Niagara falls is a very nice feature so you don't have to contend with traffic and parking in the busy areas. The pool and whirlpool are another added feature for kids and adults alike. The whirlpool rapids and other attractions on the north side of Niagara Falls are easily accesible from here. The wineries, shaw festival and art galleries are a short drive to the north along the picturesque Niagara Parkway. I would definitely stay here again.
Comfortable & convenient
An older hotel that has been updated. That said, the bathroom was clean, satisfactory but smallish. The gas fireplace worked nicely and was a great way to relax. All rooms have porches, so a smoker (my wife) could step outside while the room remained clean. Staff was very helpful and directed us well. We had to use the restaurant across the street since their's is closed during winter. The pool has both a sauna and whirlpool and is large and clean and has lots of natural light. A free shuttle (2x/hour) to the Casino was prompt and fast. I recommend the hotel.
I liked it
My boyfriend and I went to this hotel last March. We got a great deal on the room somewhere around $26 per night which included $40 gift certificate toward dinner in the restaurant (which we both enjoyed)and breakfast at the hotel next door. The room was clean and we loved the gas fireplace! I would definately come to this hotel again for the winter break package.
Horrible, Don't ever stay here
We had shopped around for hotel deals in Niagara Falls ahead of time and found a reasonable rate for this hotel, that required us to pay for it ahead of time. Which was just fine.
We arrived at the hotel before check in and just wanted them to know that we were here and make sure our was still available, it was. So went on our way and came back 3 hours after you can check in. To our surprise they GAVE OUR ROOM AWAY thet we had already payed for. And told us we we're going to get a different room with one king bed and pull out sofa. When we need 2 beds because there was 3 adults. The forst room they tried to move us to only had one bed in it. The second room was they said it would, but it was very uncomfortable, to sleep on the sofa.
The next night we told them we wanted the correct room. They gave us one. It was said that it had been recently remolded. That was kinda true. THe ceiling in the this was pealing off as well as the wall paper. Also ther was no elevator or continential breakfast like most other hotels in the area.
Pay the extra money and go to a different hotel
Very bad room/deal
We called for an advertised pkg that stated rooms "as low as $39 a night for couples" over a month ago. Of course we could not get such a price because we wanted Memorial Day weekend--my birthday. But they offered us a pkg of 2 nights at $279 to include 2 breakfasts for 2 days and dinner for 2 one night. We asked for a smoking room since we both smoke and were told no problem. When we got there we were given a non-smoking room with a balcony which was approx. 3 ft from the pool room and faced the outside wall of this. We lugged our belongings up stairs to the 3rd floor. Our tiny depressing room stank of chlorine so bad it choked us. I called the front desk and asked what happened to the smoking room and they said quite unconcerned that they do not guarantee room type. So I asked what was the use of reserving a smoking room then. They end up telling me the whole building is non-smoking! So why didn't they tell us that in the first place? I asked if calling the toll-free number we used to reserve would help and they quickly asked if they could call us back in 5 mins. In about 2 minutes they called and said we could move next door to Travel Lodge with the same pkg rate into a smoking room. Much better. Spacious room facing the Niagara Gorge, clean, and odor free and an elevator and fireplace. Be careful of this Days Inn. Not a good place in my opinion.
Give them another chance
I made a reservation here, then noticed the other reviews, so I was a little worried. However, they had completely refurbished each room with quality beds, nice gas fireplaces, new carpeting. Upon close inspection, you can see that they made some cosmetic changes and could still replace the sinks, etc. , however, it was clean and quiet and better than 2002. We stayed March 2003. I would like to say that they refunded our money when we had an emergency and had to cancel our second night stay. That was really appreciated. Give them another try for the money!
Bad place to stay
Thought we were going for a nice relaxing stay for New Years Eve what a great dissappointment, no garbage pail in room, the bed was way past its expiry date, it sank in the middle and the service was terrible. Came home and complained and the owner just appoligized saying if not satisfied then who cares pretty much. If you don't want a good nights rest then stay at this Hotel.

... lunch with Joy and the kids and said a teary goodbye. It was the perfect end to
our trip to spend the last 4 days with this wonderful family. They have put up
with us invading their home, listened to us moaning about insurance companies
and parking tickets helped Tom plan the next couple of years of his life,
driven us around and fed us beautiful, home cooked food- to name but a few
things. It has been great to share this ...

Well after seeing the top of the falls, and being surprised that you could easily hop over the railing and off the edge of the falls, we headed to the Skylon Tower. We showed the "free" pass and none of them seemed to know what it was. We showed it to the ticket desk and they just ...

So anyway where was I? ahh yes Niagra Falls.
We left NYC and flew to Buffalo. Buffalo is still on the American side in New York State, but it only took a 30 minute shuttle bus ride to arrive at the Canadian border to cross into Canada, Niagra Falls. We were both quite excited ...
... somewhere in northern Canada came in and joined me at the bar. They were good value and very keen to travel to New Zealand. After a drink, they headed off to some haunted house thing but were back half an hour later just as I was finishing my pitcher and salad. I had a couple more drinks with them and they bought me a shot of something awful so I returned the favour with Jaegermeister :)
With a slight glow-on, I headed back to my hotel. I reached into my ...
