Review of budget friendly accommodation: Motel 6, Cadillac… tips to save money on motels in Niagara Falls
Many of the popular Niagara Falls motels are clustered around Horseshoe Falls, and especially in the Clifton Hill district.
Motels in Niagara Falls downtown and its rooms are simply decorated, with basic amenities, like TV, fridge continental breakfast, Internet… Majority of these motels provide affordable rates and discounts.
Try to find a tourist office, as they carry maps, all kind of information and booklets with numerous coupons for attractions, tours, restaurants… and even motels.
Motels in Niagara Falls are OK for one or two nights and especially for couples and budget oriented families as an inexpensive way to go through the night.
Typical Niagara Falls motels are places centrally located, with the famous “romantic” heart shaped Jacuzzi tub rooms, designed for couples.
These places with a cheap accommodation are good alternative for visitors looking for a bed only, and they provide an easy access to Clifton Hill, with all the fun, entertainment and bars it offers.
Clifton Hill is noisy area, with a lot of traffic, so booking a room away, at the end of the motel, is a good idea.
For families, we suggest you to go with cheaper hotels or Inns, since they provide a higher quality of the service, have more amenities and provide also Niagara Falls deals you will like.
One of the decent and affordable Niagara Falls motels that we recommend is Motel 6. It is situated on a convenient spot, only few blocks from the Clifton Hill area on one side, and minutes away from the top high raised hotels, Niagara Falls, Skylon Tower and Fallsview casino resort on the other side.
If you have been attracted by the room rates, and in order to avoid any disappointment, we suggest you to inspect these motels personally.
Even if you are on a budget, it is good to know that the cheapest motels you will find there, are not offering much. They are not even attractive. Better option is to book one of the cheaper hotels or Inns. There are many available, with good location and rates, and more quality amenities.
How to save money when booking one of the Niagara Falls Motels?
- Use coupons that can be found in many Niagara Falls info centers
- Use discounts offered by your credit card company
- Use discounts as a member of CAA, AAA…
- Book a room during the week days, avoid holidays and peak season
- Book one of the many vacation packages
- Shop online for the best deals and discounts
They will rather sacrifice the quality and number of amenities, just to have more money for attractions, to play at one of the casinos or any other kind of entertainment.
And these are the reasons why to search and book a room in one of Niagara motels instead.
