... suitcase out of the luggage hold and re-packed it not once, but 3 times. She would no sooner get back on the bus then 5 minutes later she was off again, dragging her suitcase on to the pavement where she would put something in, or take something out, re-jig it and put it back. Fascinating.
I swear they put fairy dust through the air con on these buses, as we have now joined the Chinese and become sleepers. I don't normally sleep ...
... Tunnels done it was off to Near the Falls, a viewing platform located right next to the falls....wowee...the old Nikon got copped a hammering, it was an amazing show by mother nature. Last up was the Maid of the Mist boat tour to the foot of the falls. We pushed our way to a good vantage point on the side of the boat. Our journey commenced, passing the American falls, they're the poorer cousin to the Canadian horseshoe ...
... I am cycling across the USA from the Pacific to the Atlantic and the New York coast line was only 400m away and I didn't feel in the mood to add 450m to my trip! However, the East coast of the US is far more populated and there are many many more roads. In Montana and Dakota there was only 1 road, so that made planning pretty simple! However, when I looked at Google maps I realised that it was 400m to NY, 550m to Boston and 675m to Brunswick MA which is ...
Previous Blog: Cleveland Rocks was the theme song from that hit TV show Drew Carey, it was originally performed by Ian Hunter.
Things that are different in the USA: The indicators on cars are red not orange.
T-shirt count: lost count now but resisted buying an Al Capone t-shirt and a rock hall of fame tee shirt but weakened and brought a Dog Father tee shirt so the random buying of tee shirts is well underway.
... Falls were close – very close, the water was literally flowing on the other side of the barrier and then plunged down the waterfall. The perspective on the Horseshoe Falls was likewise very close. You could feel the power of the river and mist drizzled you lightly if the breeze blew just right, so it was very much a ‘nature’ moment. Apart from the Falls there is little enough to do apart from visiting amusement parks, casinos and 4D films about the falls. The ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge Niagara Falls Bonaventure
What a jewel of a motel!
We changed our reservation in N.F. due to bad review by Trip Advisor, to this Travelodge which was highly ranked (#2 in N.F.). We were not disappointed!! Very nice staff and attitude -- they gave we and our 5 yr. old son the choice of our original reservation or the Sleepy Bear (mascot) room -- which he and we loved. Close to good restaurants and had a night shuttle to the Falls Casino -- only we used for sightseeing which was also permitted. Clean room was used 2 nights and all amenities inside were as expected or more. Parking closeby. Some weekend noise by kids going to/from pool.
I have stayed at this location a few times. Its a good vacation spot for those really short getaways when there isn't enough time to fly somewhere. There is a nice big indoor pool which is great in the winter and there is a nice outdoor pool. It is nice that they keep both pools open in the summer. The hot tub is nice and hot and they have a small sauna too, which was more than expected for the value. The rooms are comfortable and extremely clean! There are rooms that are indoors and rooms with an outdoor entrance (motel style). The outdoor rooms are bigger and definitely the best choice in the summer. The indoor rooms are better in the winter as it can be cold walking back to your room after going swimming if you have to go outdoors. All in all, as far as value for your dollar goes, this one takes the cake. I have stayed at a lot of mediocre and crappy travelodge hotels before, but this one.....wow!
We stayed here for two nights this past October and the hotel itself was fine. We had a problem with the TV, but they did bring us another one so it was all good on that.
We spent the night of August 21, 2004 at the Bonaventure and I think it's the cleanest motel or hotel I've ever been in. It didn't have that musty "motel" smell either, which I hate. Even their public restroom was really clean. The staff was business-like, but friendly. The hotel was quiet and we never even saw another person on our floor. We had breakfast in their little restaurant and it was quite tasty yet inexpensive because of the exchange rate. The hotel is away from the busy tourist area of the Falls, but it's not far to drive there if you want to. We actually were in town to see a concert in Buffalo, which took us about a half hour or less to drive to. You won't be sorry if you choose to stay here.
We visited Niagara Falls, ON on the third week of August of 2004 and stayed at this hotel. It was a very pleasant experience, e.g. the hotel room was very clean and well decorated, free parking, very affordable breakfast, and it was not too expensive. I'd recomend this hotel as a great place to stay and save!!!
Clean, Clean, Clean
The Bonaventure was an excellant value. We stayed here for three nights. The rooms were very clean, the staff very courteous and helpful. The pools (indoor & Out) and the hot tub were very clean and well maintained. The restaurant although only open for breakfast was a great meal with very generous portions. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thanks for a great trip to Niagara Falls.
The facilities are relatively new, and there are quite a few extras (nice pools). Since it is a mile or two down Lundys Lane, the price is extremely reasonable. Definitely worthwhile, a solid value.
Travelodge Bonaventure is great!!!
My family has stayed numerous times a year at this location over the past 5 years and we always are assured a bright, clean room. The pool is clean, large and warm. The water is actually deep as opposed to some locations. The spa/hot tub is actually warm (like it should be). The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The location is very clean.
We always choose this location as we have stayed in numerous locations and find this the best!!
This is the 4th year in a row that we have stayed at this Travelodge...We got married at the Chapel beside it in October 2000 and we have been back every year to celebrate our anniversary. We are treated special every time we come there and are very comfortable with the location, the facilities and the wonderful staff that greet us every year. It is pleasant to look forward to going there every year, as we know we will be treated as well as the first year we went there. We tried a night down by the falls but were invaded by ladybugs... so we left and went backt to the Travelodge on Lundy,s Lane, where we should have all along... The other hotel was not very eager to refund our money for our 2nd night booked but they had no choice as we would have taken it much further, as we already had our 1st Anniversary night ruined.....
We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights this past July and the hotel was nice. The room was large,the beds were comfortable and everything was clean. The staff were very friendly...We had a large bathroom and everything was in good working order. The hotel seems like it is fairly new. It also has a restaurant on the premises that serves breakfast.
The hotel gave us a coupon. Wasn't noisy or anything like that...would definately stay there again.
