Travel Blogs from Niagara Falls
To end the day we drove north along the Niagara Parkway - as Winston Churchill says "the prettiest Sunday afternoon drive in the world" and we just happen to come across Pellar Estate Winery in time for a wine tour!!
While in Niagara we picked up lovely Fresh Strawberries which I was surprised to see given the short growing season & that the corn crop has only just started ...
... interesting billboards, our favorite made from a sheet of plywood painted florescent orange and stenciled with red neck font letters declaring: “FIREWORKS, PEPPER SPRAY, KARATE SUPPLIES NEXT EXIT”. Sadly we were unable to merge quickly enough to get any. Perhaps the drive home :/
And that brings me up to date for now…next WiFi spot and I’ll upload the blog and photos! Time to study my inner eyelids for a bit!
... taken across the boarder a little bit harder to get into the USA, Deena got told off because she still had her sunglasses on tis tis tis well we got thru and back safe to the airport. Buffalo airport is quite small in the USA the Mt Gambier airport would be a shop in Buffalo Airport just to put it in proportion we had a really nice lunch took our time and thought we had plenty of time but my watch was wrong and panic set int we have misses our plane back to Newark ...
... of the Horseshoe Falls was worth the visit (and got the use out of the poncho). I then walked the 4.1 km downriver to the White Water Walk, alongside the Niagara River rapids (category 6, for all the white-water rafting aficionados). They made Futaleufu look a bit tame, with huge waves building up. I then took the People Mover (it was 28 C by now) back upstream for the Maid of The Mist, the boat ride into the mist of the Horseshoe ...
Niagara is lovely although it was a rainy day.... I think the first time of rain since I set off 6 weeks ago....the mist was high and the views somewhat unclear but nice all the same to say I've seen Niagara..... the only disappointment.... there is no superman waiting to catch you..... hmmmm maybe that's where I went wrong.... I didn't fall!!! Oh well off now on another long drive to Ohio, not much more to say as I'm sleeping and being ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Quality Inn Niagara Falls
Enjoyed our stay
I was really worried about this hotel afer reading the reviews after I booked the hotel. We were only going to stay one night and ended up staying four nights! It is an average hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I suppose some of these people writing bad reviews must be use to the big top dollar $200 per night hotels but even those can be nasty! If luxery and presidential treatment is was you expect you will be disappointed. If all you want is a nice, clean place to sleep, this hotel is fine! I will stay here again on my next visit.
Nasty, nasty, horror place
Room was not clean, cushion smelled like kitchen, black long hairs everywhere hair clip under the blanket. The linen dirty, with spots you my guess witch use this room was for. Management did not excuse this, totally unfriendly. The lady who cleaned up the room for us later, did a good job. The breakfast restaurant ( extra charge) unfriendly service poor. The kid's called this hotel later the "horror one". Do not stay there if possible, we booked in advance. believed Quality Inn's are good hotels.
A Horrible Stay in Niagara
Do not stay here if it is the last room in Niagara Falls! Unfortunately, I did not read the reviews before I booked our rooms. That is the last time I make that mistake. The one positive thing that I can honestly say is that the staff, besides the owner, is great. They are very nice. However, the positives stop there. When we got there, our room smelled like mildew (it was so bad we had to switch rooms)and there was mold on the walls. There were ants everywhere in our room and we were traveling with our baby, so I was a bit upset. I decided to at least try out the pool with our son, that was a big selling point of this hotel. An indoor, heated pool, sounds great, right? That's what I thought. Until we were swimming and I looked on the wall over on the patio side and there were hundreds of black spiders everywhere. Not just little spiders, but hairy spiders about 2 inches in diameter. Needless to say we did not go back to the pool. It really was a terrible hotel. We travel a lot. Just this summer we have stayed in about 18 different hotels and never once have I had a complaint until now. Since our trip, I have contacted the Choice Hotel International Inc. and the NY Board of Health. I hope this review helps. The cheaper rate is not worth it.
Nothing wrong with this place
When I read all of the reviews here, I was scared to death, but I got a great rate on the Quality Inn, and decided to take a chance. It was worth it. Keep in mind, this place is not all that convenient to the falls, but it's clean and quiet. I got my money's worth.
Nasty and Dirty
Staff is not responsive to complaints (we had raw sewage dripping through ceiling). Dirty, Dirty, Dirty hotel. Never stay there.
No Quality at this Inn,old furniture,creepy staff & location
location : 7708 Niagara Fall Blvd
No cheery greeting from the front desk.
Also,as other review mentioned,poor wireless internet reception
only the middle front rooms have any signal strength.
Room was gloomy and stale,like someone died in there.
Very old bathroom. Beds were in terrible shape,matresses were
Friday nite we were there,many noisy guests could be heard from inside
Pool area was plain, no hot bubbling jacuzzi, just a cold pool which seemed unclean.
No free morning breakfast, all in all ,not a pleasant place,on a busy street
I would never recommend to anyone!
Even the Motel 6 in Amherst was much nicer atmosphere.
Pay a little more and stay at a better place, this place is a waste of money.
If you're looking for Quality, look somewhere else!
We spent one terrible night at the Quality Inn in Niagara Falls. We booked a king non-smoking room, and there had definitely been someone smoking in our room. The staff at the hotel were very unfriendly when attempting to resolve this matter. The rooms were also not very clean, and most of the furniture and linen was very, very old and worn. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, nor am I ever planning on returning.
Avoid at all costs
Quality Inn is certainly an oxymoron when it comes to this hotel. I had the misfortune of staying there while on a trip to a conference. Needless to say our group will not be staying there next year.
The hotel itself is reasonably clean, but shows its age as another non-descript 70s era hotel. Check-in was rather disorganized with nobody behind the counter taking charge. However the staff was reasonably friendly.
The room was roomy and clean, though it sported classic 80s vintage decor. What killed the entire experience were the beds. Both beds in my room should have been replaced 5 years ago. The beds were so bad that I spent the first night on the floor. The bathroom was understocked for a double room, I had the room to myself however. Not enough towels for 4 people nor were any toiletries beyond two bars of soap.
There must be better choices for comparable money on the American side of the Falls... unless they magically rennovate this hotel in the near future find another place to stay.
Very bad Experience

Hotel Code (NY181)
I called this hotel to make sure they had high speed internet (HSI) in the room. They said yes, so I booked a room for 3 nights. When we
arrived, I found out that the HSI was located in a conference room, but we could use the machine ($$$ per minute) in the lobby (you've seen the ads
on television). The hotel did offer to move their conference room around so we could use their HSI, but that's not what we wanted - we wanted
it in our room as promised. We were told later that our room was "wireless" so we purchased additional equipment for our PC, but later found out that the "wireless room" must be in their dreams - nothing in the room!
When we arrived, our room was dingy, stinky and dirty - looked like the floors haven't been cleaned in months. Our room's view was another hotel blank wall!
Our bed was like a rock. Quite honestly at this point, we thought we had made a mistake and there was part of me who had planned this trip
for weeks that wanted to go home.
We received a room next to the pool. As a couple taking a break from children, it was nice to have some piece and quiet which was shattered
the next morning at 6:45 a.m. with children and their parents screaming at the entrance to the pool and in the pool (it wasn't supposed to open
until 10 a.m.). That was the last straw. We checked out and went to another hotel.
Choice Hotels should really consider taking their name off this hotel. It doesn't live up to my expectations of their company.
Stay awway if you can...
The hotel has ample parking space and is near Niagara Falls. However, the dusty bedsheets and comforters were unforgivable! The bathrooms were clean and nice but beware, the toilet bowl can get clogged by tissue paper!
