We had to take the tour bus to Niagara falls...and the hotel was at walking distance
Good breakfast...and coffee at the lobby through the whole day.
I thought that the way this tiny hotel was wedged into this older part of time was cool. Literally the hotel is so small I almost missed it even when looking right at it. A bigger sign would've been helpful. The breakfast bar was good, the staff was friendly, the room was small but had everything needed.
My one major complaint was the inability to control the thermostat. There was no cool feature on the thermostat, only heat, and the staff for some reason couldn't explain this to me. I was simply told it would get cooler as the temperature went down. So during the day when it was almost 80 degrees outside, it was almost 80 degrees in our room as well. We were only able to cool the room off at night by opening our window. Also, even though I told the staff several times before my stay (I made my reservation about a month ahead of time) that I would be coming in at 6am I was still unable to get in my room until 1pm. So after riding a bus for 7 miserable hours my wife and I had to walk around NYC for another 7 hours, wearing the same clothes from the day before and with no sleep or showers.
The young woman at the front desk was so kind and helpful. It was a wonderful experience.
