Red Carpet Inn & Suites Fallsway
Travel Blogs from Niagara Falls
After a short drive to get in touch with american cars, we arrive in Niagara Falls, in the Canadian side. Our surprise is so big when we see all the buildings, fairs and things, it is like a giant fun park! So disappointing...We leave our car at the motel and go to the falls in a short walk, but it starts raining as I had never seen before. …
Caught the bus from New York to Buffalo where I had a transfer. Unfortunately having a ticket doesnt mean having a seat. The 7am bus I had a ticket for was full and had to wait 3hrs for the next bus to niagra. If I had to guess I would say that the fact that I and a number of people were asked if we wanted to catch an earlier bus to …
... t bothered catching the WEGO bus we justed walked everywhereand to each attraction we paid to see. From the right you have the Canadian Horseshoe Falls and as you walk along a bit you stand in front of the American Falls with Goat Island separating the two falls. You can see the people on the american side of Niagara River the canyon between the two countries is very steep. There are steeps on the American side that ...
... anyone who does not know, Clifton Hill is a strip of stores, wax museums, and various oddities that apparently attract tourists. The entire area had the feel of a neighborhood where a dollar store had exploded all over a carnival. It was just plain tacky.
I guess if you think of the area in terms of a carnival instead of a major tourist attraction, then perhaps it would not be so bad. But since I was thinking of it as one ...
... minimize the impact of Toronto's infamous rush hour. So there I was, up and at it at 5AM and on the road shortly after. I was on the road so early that I even passed a Tim Horton's truck making its morning delivery. Just kidding! On a more serious note, those that know me well understand, there is a fine balance for me between being up early and successfully operating machinery. Lesson #9 - "When in Rome, do as the Romans do." As I got past ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Red Carpet Inn & Suites Fallsway Niagara Falls
The hotel is filthy dirty and so disgusting that we will NEVER go back to this hotel again. The hotel required full payment when we checked in at 1:00 PM and being told that the check-in time should be at 3:00 PM and the check-out time is 10:00 AM the next day. The room is dirty with hair and bugs all over the place. The bed sheet never clean or change because there is hair all over it. We have five towels and two of them have been used with dirt mark on them. We sure needed the towels to clean the bath tub and the floor because there was hair all over the bathroom. The soaps were from Howard Johnson Hotel and had yellow stain on them. The shampoo was from Sheraton and conditioner was from another hotel and they were all opened and dried out. The room carpet has burned mark from the iron. I informed the front desk and he already knew the burned mark was there but did not repair it. Room has TV but no remote control. The washroom mirror is damage, door stopper, hangers and light switch screw are all rusted. I do not believe it is a safe or clean place for anyone to stay. The local health board should check out this hotel to see if it is safe for people to live in.
The only plus for this hotel was the cheep rates. The flies, the smell, the lack of hot water, the fist holes in the walls, the bargain basement furniture, the crappy television reception is not worth their rates. Not to mention that the staff were indifferent at best.
Was there for 2 nights, on arrival we had to change rooms because my wife would not stay in the original room. She was attacked by bugs when she went to check the bathroom and the room was dirty. Our upgrade to a suite was no treat. My kids couldn't use the front bedroom because the air conditioner sounded like it was going to erupt. The rest of the room was dirty, bugs, smelled, peeling wallpaper, geez..... We even were left with no change of sheets or towels after the first night. The ONLY plus was that it was walking distance to the falls, but so were plenty of motels for a little more $$. Next time I'll pay the few extra bucks and stay at a hotel with a better track record. Stay away, its to beautiful an area to stay at a hotel like this .We would have left but the room was pre-paid .
Bare bones and semi-cheap for the area, but still over-priced. Rooms are clean, but the carpets are filthy. Our feet and socks turned nearly black from walking around in the room. No iron & board, no hair dryer, no TV remote, and no alarm clock. Small fridge and microwave costs extra and were not there the first night as requested. We had to wait until the next morning to get them. Watch out what you plug in the room or running multiple electrical items at once. We learned after we tripped the breaker once and power to the whole room went out.
Never mind the thread counts...what you should be concerned about is the spider count! Make sure you have your cell phone with you as you won't be able to make local, 1-800 or calling card calls. The general condition of the room was filthy. The ceiling looked like it was about to cave in at any time. The carpet, furniture and beds looked like they were bought at a thrift store. The hotel property is in a poor section of town and I'm quite surprised that I didn't witness any drug deals going down. The pool was closed pending an EPA investigation of what was floating in it. Wash rags are issued at the front desk upon request and will not be laundered for you by housekeeping!?!?!? All glass surfaces were streaked and the tv had no remote. If you want to stay in a dirty, insect infested hotel where Moe, Tipu, and Habib are your cruise directors...then the Red (brown) Carpet Inn Fallsway is for you. Any good reviews must be coming from the owners.
Red Carpet, eh? Probably ketchup stains...
I've stayed in three Red Carpet Inns now. I'm not one to confront shabby rooms, cruddy service, worn carpets, or other lousy conditions, but I DO eventually learn. The Red Carpet name practically guarantees you a level of quality- a level of quality so low you'd be better off sleeping in your car.
booked room for 2 nites on line - wallpaper loose and almost falling from wall, furniture cheap and in need of repair - towels small and not enough.
It was clean and the bed was good but the room was very sub standard for the price. We left after the first nite for another hotel but were refused a refund for the 2nd nite because they require 48 hours notice.
My husband and I went to Niagara realizing that we weren't staying at the top hotel available, but I didn't expect the conditions we found. In our room we had 2 queen beds, 2 dressers, a TV with cable, air conditioning, a bathroom, and a small refrigerator. Plus it was less than a 5-minute drive from all the excitement of the Falls. Listing the amenities you'd think this was a nice place to stay. We thought so too based on the descriptions and pictures we saw. When we arrived, however, I found the accommodations less than satisfactory. The drain in the sink was clogged with hair and gross, though I must admit the rest of the bathroom seemed clean enough. Most hotels give you soaps, shampoos, and such in case you forgot your own. The Red Carpet Inn did as well, but they were a jumble of miniatures with logos from other hotels on the bottles. The furniture in the room was miss-matched. While there we tried to make a reservation at a local restaurant but our phone wouldn't work for local calls. We talked to the people at the front desk, but there was a language barrier, which made communicating difficult. We had to go to them twice before they figured out which button to push so we could make local calls. The pool area was adequate though the chairs were outdated and uncomfortable. In general I'd describe the hotel as outdated and miss-matched. Overall I was very disappointed in the service and presentation of the hotel.
We stayed at the Red Carpet Inn in September of 2004 for my birthday. It ruined our trip and was the dirtiest place I have ever stayed. It took us some time to even find the place because it is completely out of the way behind a Kraft cheese factory. When we arrived, we were placed in a room not actually connected to the hotel at all, but across the street. The bathroom was moldy and dirty and had obviously not been cleaned before our arrival. The TV didn't have a remote and only had 3 channels. The chair in the room was at one point in it's life green, we think, but the huge stains covering it could have clouded our judgement. The bed was the worse part- it was sunk so low that we could see the bottom of the headboard. My boyfriend began repacking the car when a staff person - all Indians who did not speak great english - saw us and offered us the room next door instead. It was just as bad. He showed us 1 more room above the green and dirty pool. It smelt awful and the AC kept us awake all night. The next day when we walked to the falls (parking is expensive along the falls) we were exhausted by the time we actually got there! It was impossible to have a stroll down to ... anywhere.
