Staff are available at the front desk during limited hours.
Hotel was very quiet and very clean. Great view of the ships going thru the Welland canal and with biking or easy driving distance to other lockes in canal and visitor centers. Hotel was easy to find lots of parking and private balconies.
Office did not open until 7:30 so it was hard to leave early to turn in the key. No phones in room (cell phone plan did not include canada). Wireless was spotty at best.
The view of Welland Canal is awesome from every room in this hotel as the balcony is facing the lock. A trail for running and biking also starts near this hotel and makes a great running path in the morning (assuming weather is good).
They surprised us with a $10/child/night charge (every child over 5) on the morning we left that wasn't part of booking. No shampoo, soap, and few towels (even though they charged). English language barrier with owner can be issue. A/C was lacking.
