All Good Didn't experience any problems with this hotel Breakfast was the same as most hotels but all hotels should cater more to guests who have gluten allergies.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sir_78 Everything that could go wrong did
There was a pool pipe burst a couple days before we arrived. Now I understand that there was nothing that could be done about the situation but we were not informed when we checked in. The main reason that we booked this hotel was for the pool. It wasn't until the next evening, when we went to go swimming, that we were told that the pool was down.
If I had known this we would not have stayed at the hotel but since we had already stayed the night and were into the next day it was too late.
Housekeeping didn't come to our room and we had to call and ask for more towels etc. The staff was very nice and someone brought us towels. The next morning the housekeeping staff just walked into our room without knocking. Naturally I was naked on the bed.
Finally the bed was ridiculously hard. Now i understand that different people like different beds but this was like sleeping on a piece of wood. I usually sleep on my side but I couldn't because my arms were going numb.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MEDICMEAGAN BAD LOCATION AND HORRIBLE SUITES
PLANNED MY HONEYMOON AROUND NEW YEARS EVE EVENTS. REQUESTED A JACQUIZI SUITE NICEST ROOM THEY HAD WITH A NOON CHECKIN BECAUSE I HAD TO MEET WITH THE CHAPEL AT 1P. ARRIVED AND WAS SENT AWAY. WE COULDN'T CHANGE OR FRESHEN UP BEFORE GOING TO MEET THE MINISTER. THEN WENT WE GOT BACK AND CHECKED IN THE HOTEL ALREADY TOOK OFF HALF THE BALANCE AS A DEPOSIT. WE CHECK IN SHE TAKES THE WHOLE BALANCE AND EXTRA FOR A DEPOSIT. WHAT SHOULD OF BEEN A $450 CHARGE ON MY CREDIT CARD IS NO $650. WHEN I CALL HER ON THE MISTAKE SHE SAYS SHE CAN RELEASE THE CHARGE BUT NEVER DOES. ITS THE HOLIDAY AND SHE WASTED $200 OF OUR TRIP MONEY BY OVERCHARGING US RIGHT OUT THE GATE. WE GET TO OUR ROOM AND LAY DOWN FOR A NAP. ALL WE HERE THE WHOLE HOUR IS A DOG GOING CRAZY BARKING AND WHINING IN THE NEXT ROOM. I GET UP AND GO DOWN TO THE DESK. I ASKED TO HAVE OUR ROOM CHANGED AWAY FROM THE DOG. THE FRONT DESK ATTENDENT ACTS LIKE SHE CANT DO ANYTHING AND SENDS ME BACK TO MY ROOM. I WENT BACK DOWN AND TRIED TO IGNORE IT. AFTER ANOTHER 30MINS I CAME BACK DOWN AND THE MANAGER CAME OUT. SHE SWITCHED US TO THE OTHER SUITE THEY HAD. EXACT SAME ROOM JUST OTHER SIDE OF THE BUILDING. THIS ENDED UP BEING WORSE. THIS SUITE SITS BETWEEN THE WASHING MACHINE ROOM AND THE POOL. ALL WE HAD WAS NOICE ON EITHER SIDE OF US NONSTOP. FOR BEING RIGHT NEXT TO THE HOUSEKEEPINGS AREA WE DIDN'T GET OUR ROOM CLEANED UNTIL ALMOST 4P THE NEXT DAY. THE BREAKFAST AREA DIDN'T HAVE ANYWHERE NEAR ENOUGH SEATING AND THE FOOD QUALITY WAS VERY POOR. THE BACON WAS COOKED ALL THE WAY THROUGH. THE ONLY MILK THEY OFFERED WAS SKIM. THE YOGURT WAS ACTIVIA. AND NO ONE WAS CLEANING IT SO THERE WAS WAFFLE AND OTHER MESSES JUST EVERYWHERE ON THE BAR.
THIS IS THE SECOND HOLIDAY INN I HAVE STAYED AT THIS YEAR. I USED TO WORK FOR A HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS. THIS HOTEL NEEDS SOME SERIOUS ATTENTION. EVEN IN JUST THE LOCATION OF CERTAIN ROOMS. THE STAFF AND HOW THEY HELP PEOPLE. EVEN IN MAKING SURE THEY DON'T OVERCHARGE ON A HOLIDAY WEEKEND AND BANKS AREN'T OPEN TO CORRECT THE ERROR.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unhappy Lady Not Impressed with my Stay!!
My stay at the Holiday Inn Express was not great. The room was not very clean (I found garbage on the floor and the bathroom floor looked dirty). I ordered a pizza from the place listed on the hotel's speed dial and it never came (even after I called to ensure it was on its way), so my kids went to bed without dinner. We also did not get any sleep, as the noise in the building from other people staying there went on well past 1am. I did not have time to address the concerns before I left, as I was rushed to get to my plan and when I went to leave the hotel had a snowplow do out the parking lot, but the plow had literally plowed all of the vehicles in. I had to shovel out my van with my snow brush in order to leave. I was literally going to let this all slide, because that is the kind of person I am, but I now see on my bank statement that I was charged twice for the room. I am not impressed at all!! The hotel will be hearing from me first thing in the morning.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GOBLUE32 Great for shopping
The location is perfect for getting to the outlet mall or Walden.
There was ample parking
The employees were friendly and helpful. We were always greeted with a smile.
The room was very clean and comfortable.
WIFI was very reliable compared to other places I have stayed
The only issue I had was with the food at breakfast. The omelets were soggy and the bacon wasn't cooked very well. The boiled eggs seemed like they had been there for some time. It was surprising considering that the be one of the best features for the Holiday Inn Express locations we stay at. The only reason I didn't complain is because the person working breakfast was doing such a good job keeping the area stocked and clean.
The pool and fitness facilities were good
I would probably stay there again but if the quality of the breakfast was as poor as this stay, I would have to look at another location.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Roger56 Don't Stay here
Too much noise from other rooms. Breakfast is not very good. Go for the toast or cereal. I happened to mention a lock that kept falling off the bathroom door. Response? Take half the lock off. Result? Looked in bathroom due to dead bolt still on! Now with all that, I must say tha the staff did do all they could. But we didn't sleep well for two nights because people above us kept walking hard on the floor! This is beyond hotel operator's control no doubt but design of hotel makes this possible so I cannot in my conscience recommend!!

There was no "gold status" acknowledgement at check in.
There was not enough towels in the room and no bedding for the pullout couch..it was however delivered quickly,
Pretty standard hotel and stay for what I have come to expect from
Holiday Inn express.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Trinigirl Good stay & good location
We were only there for one night - our room was right near the elevator which was not ideal but we could not change rooms as hotel was full - it ended up not being noisy so it was ok - room was an average one which one would expect fom a Holiday Inn Express - clean which to me is the most important factor. Staff were very pleasant & helpful - breakfast was good - nothing fancy but that's the way I like breakfast - simple but good. Location was ideal for us - coming from Canada - very near to the border & near to the fashion outlet mall. Definitely would stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jerry24 Dirty cold pool area..
Pool smelled like urine!!! Not sure if cleanliness of the pool depends on the time of day we went (evening) but we were sorely disappointed by the experience. It was also cold. The last Holiday Inn we stayed at had a nicely heated pool area and we were hopeful that all HIs had the same standards. Breakfast was okay except for the eggs which were tasteless - we witnessed a few other guests dumping eggs in the garbage.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kandl74 Better than expected
After reading the reviews we were pleasantly surprised. We used our points, the person at the front desk was friendly and had everything ready to go. The room was clean, we didn’t find any bugs. The pool was clean, the fitness center was adequate. Breakfast was better than expected, the hotel changed it from day to day, nice touch. We enjoyed our stay, note there is nothing close by so you should have a car. I checked on the cost of a cab to the falls and was told it would be five dollars. Overall it was a nice stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sunder Decent hotel to stay. Very good front desk staff
The Hotel was good in all respects. Very good rooms. We did not have breakfast as we had to leave the next morning. However they packed a few things and gave. This hotel is very far away from Niagara falls and you require to take a taxi from here which will cost about 20$ on way. The Bufallo airport too is very far away and it costs about 60-70$ to reach airport.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mulabbs Convenient location, clean and larger than expected
We initially wanted to stay closer to the falls - so glad we didn't as that area is very run down. We made a great selection with Holiday Inn Expresss. It's convenient to Outlet Mall and Galleria Shopping and located in a nicer part of town. It was clean and the room/suite was larger that we had expected, offering a nice space to unwind and relax after shopping. I liked being able to look out window and see my car safely parked in well lit lot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EJH313 Great Hotel, Invisible Room?
My coworker and I stayed at this hotel during a business trip. The breakfast was good for a free continental; There was a good selection and we didn't walk away hungry either morning we were there. The front desk was helpful and courteous. My only complaint was that I was in the last room down our hallway. The numbering directional system when trying to find the room stopped at the number before mine (I believe my room was 427, and numbering on the directional signs stopped at 426). When we came back from working after our first night, my coworker's room exactly next to mine had been cleaned, but my "invisible" room had not been touched. I'm not a dirty person and don't move around much when I sleep, so it wasn't a big deal, but just confusing that the 6" gap between our doors seemed to be the stopping point for the cleaning crew. I'd still stay there again though, of all the hotels on Niagara Falls Blvd., this definitely appeared to be the nicest and the price was excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LibbyLew Comfy bed and clean, spacious room
When we booked our hotel over the phone, the booking agent got our dates wrong, even though she repeated them back to us correctly. After seeing our confirmation e-mail with the wrong dates, I called back and was told that those rates would not apply to our actual dates....we booked because the rates were so good! Our credit card had already been charged! We ended up getting the dates we wanted but it was a unnecessary hassle.
The only complaint regarding the actual hotel stay was the girl at the front desk had no knowledge of how to get places. She was very nice but was confused about directions.

Have stayed at this hotel many times while cross border shopping, it's the nicest hotel in the area and the closest to the outlet mall.
Bedding is clean and comfortable, fridge and microwave great especially when traveling with children. Free wifi, Many choices for breakfast and coffee available all day. Will definitely stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lisa6600 A nice getaway with Mom
I wanted to take my Mom away for a couple of days to spend some time together. We decided on Niagara Falls since it wasn't that far of a drive. I booked my hotel through the 1-800 # for Holiday Inn. When I booked my reservation I was led to believe the hotel I was booking at was located next to the Falls, which is what I wanted since my Mom recently had both of her knees replaced and it would be nice to be close so we could go back to the hotel and take breaks during the day if she needed to. When we arrived at the hotel we found that we weren't right by the Falls. This hotel is about 7 miles from the Falls, but definitely an easy drive. Initially we wanted to change our hotel to the HI located at the Falls, but after dealing with the staff at Holiday Inn Express and Suites we decided the hospitality we received, as well as the cleanliness of the hotel, we're WELL WORTH driving a little way to the Falls. On our first night in town we were leaving the casino at night and I was having trouble navigating my way back to our hotel. I called the front desk and the woman who answered, Mandy, stayed on the phone with me the entire way back to the hotel, which was a SHORT drive, but she took me through the town, street by street, until we got back. That was the beginning of the OUTSTANDING customer service we received during our stay. Mandy, who we talked to every day, was so extremely helpful and professional. She also had such a nice, personal quality to her. Working in HR for the past 15 years I have dealt with all kinds of people and I can say that Mandy was the epitome of what a true professional should be. She had such an amazing work ethic (I swear every time we turned around she was there!). Also, her customer service EXCEEDED expectation. This wasn't just with me and my Mom. I witnessed it with others as well. A family came to the dining area after hours and she brought out more food, asked them what they wanted and made sure they were fed (actually I witnessed this twice). She had such a great personality...she truly made our stay so much nicer than we expected - THANKS MANDY!!!! In addition, the other staff members we dealt with were also helpful and courteous (Ashley / front desk and housekeeping). Other upsides to staying here were the cleanliness (I have traveled A LOT for work over the past 15 years and this was one of the cleanest hotels I ever stayed in) and the location. Although a short drive to the Falls, this hotel was close to everything you could need...stores, restaurants, the Outlets (2 miles) as well as other amenities. If you are heading to the Falls on the New York side STAY HERE. You will be glad you did!
