Historical Traveler Reviews Skyline Inn Niagara Falls
You are paying for three things at this place...Location, Location, Location and that is absolutely it. Like others have mentioned, you'll fear for your health after staying here as the carpets/drapes/beds look like they harvest diseases. The bathrooms are tiny. No A/C so don't dare stay here during the summer. TV barely worked and it wasn't just our room. Many others functioned the same.
Also be aware that most guest like to party so if you are looking for a quite motel, try somewhere else.. For a place that has a nice lobby, you only wonder why they can't spend some money to paint and get new linens/carpet. Good luck... Brock plaza and Sheraton are also close and might be worth the extra bills.
We could not believe how BAD it was. Lobby NICE, But as soon as you step out of the lobby YOUR IN HELL.Rusty doors lead you to your room and you have to walk outside to get to. It was raining the day we arrived we were wet and cold befor we got to our room. And once we opened up our door .....WORDS CANT TELL HOW BAD. I called the front desk to ask for changes or a different hotel. I was told nothing could be done..STAINED CARPETS,STAINED BEDDING BURNS IN DRAPES,The bathroom you had to step up to get in. WE WOULD NEVER STAY AT SUCH A PLACE AGAIN.
Great trip..but no coffee
Great staff, comfortable rooms but no coffee pot in room or vending machines, you have to walk next door to Perkins...pay $2+ for coffee.
Also $6.00 a day to park in a hotel that you are staying in...seems a little steep.
Great Value - Excellent Location
Bargain Price with a great location for walking to most everything.
Food is next door- steps to the casino. Easy to park in the garage.
Staff is friendly, rooms are clean. We were upgraded to a balcony room for no extra cost. If you want it very quiet, and want to feel less closed in: the extra money for the balcony room is worth it. We had a great time.
Slept and LEFT!!
$155 a night , aug 31 '03Good parking.....and n/aOne elevator, rugs were dirty, stained, curtains in room had holes in it..and when u closed them ..it looked like someone shot it up..Wasn't greeted while when asking for service..Slept and left for a wonderful day...Skyline looks nice from the outside... staying at sheridan next
Not bad, very affordable. Only pain is the fact that you have to walk to the pool at one of the adjacent hotels. Other than that fine, good location, steps to the Falls, Casino and the other major attactions.
Overall, I'd go back.
From check-in to check-out, we were very pleased. The room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is so close to the Casine Niagara, that one had no parking problems. Guests are treated well. We would stay there again!!
My mother, sister and I went on one of the Skyline Inn 3 day/2night packages. Boy was it worth it! The rooms decor was great, but even more than that everything was clean and in working order. The staff (everyone from the registration clerk to the maid) was pleasant and friendly. The location was perfect....close enough to walk to all the attractions and the falls, but far enough away you didn't have all the noise. We plan on going again next year!
I stayed at the Skyline Inn on their two day package. I was very impressed. The complex was very quaint from the underground parking, to their cobblestone entrance, to their tastefully decorated lobby. Most rooms face into a court yard which also adds to the quaintness. The rooms were clean and quite large. The decorating was equal to the rooms at the Brock...but larger. All Skyline guests have access to the Brock Plaza swimming pool, jacuzzi, and sauna. The only draw back here would be that in bad or cold weather it would make the short trek to the Brock unpleasant.
The package deal was awsome. The breakfast is large, served with choice of meat, eggs, hashbrowns, choice of toast or pancakes and juce or coffee. The dinner voucher also was a good deal. I opted for the Sheridan penthouse dinner. It was a very nice restaurant with a great view of the falls. (ask for a seat by the window) I ended up paying $32.00 even with the $50 voucher, still I am pleased. I would like to try the Brock Plaza Restaurant next time. At the Brock there are different meals to choose from that are completely covered on your $50.00 meal voucher (drinks and dessert extra).
Good Value..Great Location
I have stayed at the Skyline Inn on several (6) occasions. I believe the two major reasons for staying there out of all the hotels in Niagara are the location and the reasonably priced rooms. The rooms are clean and the employess friendly. It is within walking distance of all the attractions...especially the casino. The only two drawbacks (which are minor) are the parking garage and the outdoor corridors. On a scale of 1 to 5 I would give it a solid 4.

The day of our trip arrived earlier than we had planned . . . at 12.55am to be precise when a 'jingling' sound woke me up. The thought that I had imagined it was quickly dispelled by John's dulcet tones, complaining that the noise was occurring every five minutes and he hadn't slept a wink. Perhaps his tone wasn't as dulcet as it could have been! Over the next half an hour or so, we sat waiting for the noise, deciding what ...
Monday morning we got up early and headed out to Niagara Falls. Traffic was light and we had no wait at the border, got a great (and expensive!) parking spot by the falls. We got on the Hornblower cruise, which is the cruise out of the Canadian side since now maid of the mist is only on the American side. And it was awesome!!! I haven't been to the falls ...

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...

A team from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dammed the falls in June 1969 in order to clear rock from the base of the falls. Rockslides had caused a significant buildup of rock at the bottom of the American side of the falls, and the engineers were to clean up the rock and repair some faults to prevent eventual erosion of the American side of ...

Once back on the coach we drive to the elegant town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, stopping at the 'Whirlpool' rapids and rather lame Floral Clock ...
