I had booked the Hilton Fallsview for $97 a night. I found out 3 of the 6 elevators were not working, line ups were 25 minutes long, and breakfast was extremely limited. They also add $35 a night for parking, and extra daily room charges totalling over $15. I cancelled, and thankfully, booked the River Rapids Inn instead. While a different category hotel entirely, I had a very clean king room with a walkout balcony overlooking the river. There was a welcome gift-wrapped bag of bottled water, and treats on the table, and the bed was so very comfortable. Management went above and beyond by providing delivery of a brown bag breakfast, with box juice, wrapped muffins, banana bread, granola bars and fruit. There were no extra charges added to my bill, and parking was free. I will definitely return.

Decided after months of isolation to take a little last minute getaway. Booked a Thursday and Friday night. Staff was lovely and accommodating. The rooms were simple yet clean and comfortable. The beds were comfortable and the linens crisp and clean. Parking included in the great price and a simple breakfast was hung on our door each morning. A slice of a muffin type loaf, a fruit, a yogurt and a juice. Definitely enough to keep you going to start your day. The pool could definitely use a refresh but the temperature of both the water and the air was perfect and there was a large selection of towels available. Not “on the strip” but perfectly appointed for the value. I would definitely come back.

We stayed at River Rapids Inn on Canada day and had a really pleasant stay. The staff was incredibly kind and helpful. They had many covid precautions in place and they seemed to genuinely care about the wellbeing of both themselves as staff and you as a guest. It was their first night reopened and as they weren’t as busy they upgraded us to a king room for free! Due to covid we only stayed in our room and didn’t really check out the other common areas. Even then you can tell the hotel could use a little face lift, but honestly we stayed in the Hilton over looking the falls the night before and the only thing it really had on River Rapids was the view. I would definitely recommend River Rapids Inn. Great for families, couples, and solo travel (the price was right). Especially great if you want to see what the falls have to offer and what NOTL is like (as its right in between).

Thank you KellyJ5555 for your fabulous score and king review about our hotel It was built in 1942 and did have a face lift in 2016 when it was purchased. We love the quirkiness of our hotel and wouldn't change a thing

I typically am Not very picky with hotels. The staff was so nice and very accommodating. However, it needed a lot of regular maintenance which is no big deal. The pool area was poor quality and the hot tub was closed with a slab of plywood on top of it. There was a lot of caution tape everywhere. Just in need of some TLC and maintenance. This was a package I won at a benefit so no love lost. For the price they charge it maybe fair. If you are used to a chain like Marriott or Holiday Inn even, this is not the place for you.

My girlfriend and I chose to go to the River Rapids Inn due to price and convenience! We arrived for two nights and everyone was so wonderful! The lady who owns/manages the hotel was very nice and made the stay perfect! The hotel is along the river and provides views of the river and The States on the other side. Going in winter time during non peak dates allows for a super quiet and very enjoyable stay. It's only five minutes away from Clifton Hill and is perfect for being so close to entertainment! The indoor pool was a nice feature and they even have a sauna! Perfect for a day out of the cold! The rooms are super spacious! The entire hotel was super clean and very well maintained! There is breakfast included with the stay and is perfect! Great food! Thank you, River Rapids Inn for such a wonderful stay for my girlfriend and I!
