... and casinos lining the falls. Whereas the American side is basically visitor centres and walking paths through parks along the front and the buildings are further back. Coming back across the bridge I got to stand in two countries at the same time at the marker they have that indicates exactly where the border is. It was a pretty crazy thought that I was in both Canada and America all at once. I entered customs in the us side and ...
... the warmer months (totally dismantled during winter) which allows you to get very close to the American Falls. It's called Cave of the Winds - the original cave collapsed many years ago, however. Also did the mandatory 'Maid of the Mist' boat tour which lived up to expectations. They give you blue ponchos to help keep you dry. A man took his dog onto the boat, wearing the canine version! Drove across the ...
It was our earliest start to a day getting up at 4 am to catch a shuttle bus to Newark Airport and then through a complicated set of airport shuttles to the local airport Hilton.
We gathered with 11 other travellers all about 1/2 our age. Most were from England and a couple of girls from the Central Coast. Our tour leader was Cat and girl in her mid 20's who is also doubles as a bus driver.
We headed ...
... the town of Bergeron and the fromagerie, best known for its cheese. And finally, Daveluyville is a most interesting name. Crossing the border into New York was a breeze, and then we were into Adirondack country. Driving along a bumpy highway dislodged the glued front right fender of the car. It had likely come loose when I hit a curb in Regina, but the constant vibrations finished the job. Duct tape to the rescue! We stuck the tape on and voila! It worked. We arrived ...

The next stage was cave of winds (see photos see yellow ponchos and check out the free sandals), where we had great fun getting wet and misbehaving under the spray, and the roar of the falls was deafening.
Next we travelled over the the Canadian side (yay another stamp on ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Econo Lodge at the Falls North Niagara Falls
Great place and great price
I was a little hesitant booking this hotel since it was the cheapest one I found in the area. BUT I am glad that I did. I read some of these reviews, and they sounded pretty good. The rooms where really clean. The beds where good. The price was right! The breakfast was really good, all the food tasted fresh. And the best of all, the hotel was close to the shopping areas (expamle Prime Outlet, Target)
I would definitely recommend this place!
Would Not Go Back
Room in need of repairs, pillows were horrible and the bath towels, hand towels and face clothes were Discolored (that's grey, not white)
Very Good Choice
Good Choice. Using the Trip Advisors reviews we selected this facility on Niagara Boulevard for a night stay the middle of October. We were not disappointed. Nothing fancy but very clean, well maintained and neat. Wonderful location .. 3 miles from Senaca Casino and the bridge over to Canada. We had no complaint at all and priced very reasonable..at $51.00 for King Size bedroom.
Effecient, inexpensive, a will-do hotel
At an AARP rate of $42.46 per night: What a great bargain! We stayed at the Econo Lodge on October 6 after reviewing tripadvisor.com comments and searching other hotels for prices and convenience to the Falls. Even though removed from the actual Falls by several miles, we found from discussions with other tourists staying "at" the Falls that none of the hotels offer what you would call easy access. And some charge more for parking overnight than you would pay for public parking near the Falls.
Although our room was not spotless, and the pillows were not plush, the room was ok, surprisingly quiet for an exterior cooridor layout, and the staff were friendly. I would strongly recommend it.
Great - would recommend!
We stayed here for one night and it was great. The rooms are spacious, well equipped and clean - the one we were in looked like it had recently been refurbished.
The staff were friendly, professional and helpful. A complimentary breakfast is included and there is a pool and games room. You get complimentary passes for the trolley which takes you to the falls and back again.
Would definately stay there again - it's great value and good quality too.
Reasonable and Clean Lodging
Just stayed for four days at this lodging. Noticed in the lobby had received several hospitality awards. Nice pool and gabezo area. Received a newspaper each morning at our door. Excellent location to 190 and easy access to other attractions -- Canada, Fort Niagara, Lockport Canals.
Would recommend this lodging and would return.

Good place for the pice
We stayed at the econolodge last weekend. I think that in general the price was right for the rooms that we stayed in. Rooms were clean, breakfast was included, staff friendly.
If you can, it is much nicer to stay on the Canadian side.
