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!
Hotel was fine, so called manager is not
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.
The problem came with the room rate. When we made the reservation the central reservations gave us one rate (which we printed the email off) but when we checked in they would not honor the rate - even though we had the confirmation email! They did finally work out something that was only a few dollars more, but when we went to check out in the morning the manager (I still don't think he really was the manager) refused to honor the rate and we got into a big arguement at the counter about it. I finally told him to stop speaking to me because he was so rude and got a different desk agent to help me and she called someone and got it back to what the other people had told us (still a few $$ higher, but not the crazy amount he was trying for.
So even though the room itself was fine, I would never stay here again because of this problem. I have even sent copies of all the paperwork to the corporate head office and filed a formal complaint with them over the way were treated.
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!!
Nothing But 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.

... plans. Sadly, our digestive processes were affected by an unsavoury incident in the hotel lobby - a young, black man swept into the hotel and harangued the staff, all Chinese origin, with tales of assault, murder, retribution, racism and sundry other outbursts. "Off his trolly", not drugs, seems to fit the bill with hindsight. He was pursued briefly by an overweight, unqualified security guard and then confronted by a young Chinese hotel worker ...
... The show was quite good. Considering they do it three times a week, you can understand they'll soon run out of money if they spend millions each time, but it was good as far as fireworks go. It lasted about 15 minutes, so once it finished we headed back to the B&B for showers and an early night: we had a bus to Buffalo early in the morning.

... at the railing and therefore got spectacular views of the falls from all directions.
When you are above the falls they don't seem as big as they do when you are at their base. Being at the bottom where water of that power and magnitude lands really makes you feel weak and powerless, that nature really is such a wonder to behold. The boat trip was really refreshing and cleansing in a way and being a part of it ...
... me away. I don't think it helped the first sighting was of the considerably rubbisher American falls. They are the ones they don't put on the postcards! First stop was the Maid of the Mist boat, which takes you past the American falls and into the plunge pool of the Canadian Horseshoe falls. This was a bit more like it! As you get further into the waterfalls you actually see less due to the amount of mist being pumped into the air. I was one of the last on ...

We tried getting a replacement battery, but they didn't have one nearby so we resigned ourselves to driving to the campground. To make matters worse, I misplaced my sunglasses and the campground was a real dump. This was the 50th and final time that we camped on our roadtrip and it was by far the worst campground we've been in. I was so disguisted by the facilities that I didn't even take a shower and it seemed to be run ...
