Day 128 of Andy and Suez's Great Adventure
After our 4 and a half hours sleep we were up. A continental breakfast was included in the hotel cost so we were down making sure we go our money's worth before our long trip on the bus. I was really impressed with what they had to offer. I had toast and raisin bran with orange juice and tea. Andy …

Yesterday we drove from Cleveland to Niagara Falls. The drive was uneventful, besides the ridiculous number of toll booths, so we're skipping over a separate entry for that day.
I mentioned in an earlier entry how we rely heavily on Justin's GPS app on his phone. We call the GPS "Bibs"-- a name we borrowed from …
We left Washington at 9am after a buffet breakfast and drove up through Maryland and Pennsylvania, stopping in Enola at the Summerdale Plaza at McDonald's for a coffee break and Arby's in Mansfield for lunch. We arrived in Niagara at 7pm and had dinner in the Quality Inn's restaurant, the Golden Griddle, which was very nice and I had a very good …
... after arriving from a long flight has proved to be a good one. Got some sleep on the way.
Arrive at Byblos Hotel (not an easy name to remember when the Customs man at the Niagara American/Canadian border is demanding to know where you're staying!) at 5ish.
Leave at 6:00 for...
Amazingly and spectacular.
Crossed over to the Canadian side where the view was even ...
... antsy from too much sitting. After checking in at the hotel we walked to view the Falls and had dinner at the Top of the Falls restaurant. The food was good and the view was spectacular. Tomorrow we plan to do the Maid of the Mist ride and walk to Cave of the Winds. My friends at the library told me to get to one of the attractions early, before it opens, but the kids are planning another early morning swim, so I guess we will ...

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.
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.

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.
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.
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!
