Avoid this place at all costs. Disgusting. Dirty. Unsafe. See the pictures of the door in the room they wanted us to stay in. Pubic hair all over bathroom in the room they wanted us to move to after we complained. Not family friendly. This place should be shut down. And they don't want to give us a refund (we...

We discovered huge bed bugs in the middle of the night, informed management, and were thrown out at 3am to wander the streets with no refund, no apology, in a city we did not live in or know well. This was after having no sleep because of a multitude of kids drinking, throwing beer bottles off of our third floor...

On arrival in the crowded parking lot we were greeted by the stench of curry from the restaurant. It was everywhere even outside the room. Check in was fast however we had 3 flights of stairs to carry all our luggage up to get to our room with no assistance offered by the staff. The room was not the cleanest...

The worst hotel I have never seen. Very bad condition in the bathroom and the room too. Bathroom was not pleasant (not super clean, towels not good, shower lever/valve barely worked). When I started to take shower valve of faucet came to my hand, small parking, etc..... Not recommended at all.

This is an old motel. I'm sure it was once one of Niagara's famed honeymoon spots. We stayed here for 3 nights. Oddly, we ended up staying in 3 different rooms. Each room was completely different and had completely different "oddities" about it. Let's be honest--this is a cheap motel. If you're expecting the Hilton, you WILL be disappointed. If...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We bought the old Empress Motel in March 2008 at 5951 Clark Avenue in the middle of the tourist attractions of Niagara Falls. The property has 80 guest rooms, indoor swimming pool, whirlpool, sauna bath, meeting rooms and 83 seats restaurant with bar. We have been busy renovating and upgrading our facilities during our first year in business. Gradually, we are transforming the old motel into a full service hotel. We have already achieved 3 star status from Niagara Falls Tourism. Our reception area and offices have been totally renovated. We removed everything from the concrete walls and roof structure and rebuilt our rooms. We even changed the roof!!! Past clients of the Empress Motel have been impressed!!! Best of all, we have kept our prices very reasonable. ... more   less
