      Great Place, Great Location, Great Owners

      We loved this place and the owners! They were so helpful and accommodating. We called for a room late in the same day we wanted to stay there. They were booked up but called us back and offered to let us use their "VIP Apartment" below their living quarters (adjoining the motel) at the Single Queen Room Rate, which they normally only make available to friends and family. This apartment was just that -- not a "normal" motel room -- it had a bedroom, living room, kitchen, and bathroom (all small but all there). It was furnished and decorated very "smartly" with a Middle Eastern theme.

      We had a very nice conversation with the owners in the morning before we left. They told us about how they bought the motel with no previous experience in such things, have slowly put their own "signature" on it (decorating each of the 17 rooms, plus the VIP apartment) in the motif of a country they've visited. We wish them all the best in this endeavor -- they have apparently come so far with this little motel and made it an oh-so-charming place to stay at an oh-so-attractive price.

      The rooms at The Rex are small, approx. 120 sq ft and they make great use of the space. The furnishings are simple and classy, the bed is comfortable and the location is top notch.

      The rooms are facing Queen West, smack dab in the middle of The Entertainment District and The Rex itself is a restaurant/pub that realizes its true character as a live jazz & blues bar by night.

      The food is good and while there is no coffee maker in the room, you are treated to a complimentary breakfast in the morning. The owner is very gracious and the service from various members of his staff, is top notch.

      There is really no reason no to stay at The Rex.

It is about helping others, valuing and honoring yourself, and living your dreams. That's what we set off to do, to travel, and we were able to experience much more, getting married and enjoying this life together.

      ... of water as you gaze up close to the horseshoe falls. Dont worry though they supply you with another lovely poncho..this time in yellow. It is difficult to ever get a clear view of the water as it rushes over the edge of the cliff at Horseshoe falls because the water is hitting the Niagara river below at speeds of 60km/hr. Inevitably this causes a huge cloud of mist to form which obviously obstructs your view...even more so when you are like me and wear glasses. After a ...
