Appears to be a family-run business. Rooms are squeaky clean. Decent bed. One curiosity is a central climate control for whole motel, it seems. We could find no temperature control in the room. Each room has a theme. Owner is very interested in explaining the local sights and distances to each. Happy to see recycling bins. The outstanding feature of... More

How could I begin to say what a wonderful stay we had at the Rex Motel. It was so clean and the owner went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. The room provided us with a quiet nights sleep and we appreciated the refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. It may not be the fanciest place, but... More

Old school looking motel from the outside. Very clean, modern inside. Literally five minute drive from the falls. The owner, Amy (Amelia) is very kind and friendly. She will suggest things to do and where to park spending very little per day when visiting the falls. If you want to stay in the middle of the fall's life this is... More

Spotless, good beds, free parking, friendly well informed management, proximity to attractions, good value for the money. We had good advice for visiting attractions from them. Would stay there again in a minute.

Way overpriced on weekends. Steady traffic noise on a very busy street > trucks & bikes w/loud exhaust. Small TV & shower. Not within walking distance to attractions. Pillows worn out, clean room. A last minute pick. Small/old family operated motel that's seen better years. Will never stay here again!

The Rex motel was a pleasant surprise. A room was nice and neat. Amelia was wonderful. Very well priced. Especially for Niagara falls. I would definitely stay again. The swan on the bed was a nice touch.

Owner/operator is very friendly and helpful. She will answer any questions you have about Niagara. She suggested a parking area that saved us $15 a day near the attractions, but parking at the Motel is free (not common in Niagara). This is a Motel style of place. Rooms were very clean, good sized. Great economy place to stay in Niagara.... More

We stayed due to the high rating from TripAdvisor and the price. Amelia is a very pleasant and helpful .

Our room was clean, cozy and quiet. I read the reviews and we had a budget. We didn't need an overpriced room. Very glad that Amelia was so kind and helpful as we were arriving (very) late.

I totally booked this room based on Trip Advisors excellent rating! I was coming in to the Falls area and didn't know which side to stay on.
