Editor's Analysis
Updated on Apr 6, 2013
Overview
The Econo Lodge Fort Erie, formerly the Comfort Inn Fort Erie, is 7 minutes away by car from the nearest Queen Elizabeth Way interchange and 5 minutes away by car from the Peace Bridge, which provides access to the Canada/U.S. border. This hotel would be a good fit for travellers who want quick access to the border and those who want to explore the surrounding area by car.

Each of the 70 individually climate-controlled room comes with an iron and ironing board, a coffeemaker, cable TV, an alarm clock, a desk and chair and a hair dryer. Select rooms feature a microwave and mini-fridge. Smoking and non-smoking accommodations are available.

A complimentary continental breakfast is provided and on-site parking is free. Pets are permitted to stay at this hotel for a fee of $15 per night.

Other hotel features include fax and copy service, currency exchange, vending machines, a 24-hour front desk, guest laundry and complimentary newspapers in the lobby.

Niagara Falls attractions like the Skylon Tower and Marineland are 24 to 25 minutes away by car. There are a few restaurants within a 5-minute drive from the property and include Kelsey's, Green Acres Family Restaurant, Blackcreek Restaurant (pub style fare) and Artemis Family Restaurant. Shopping is nearby at Factory Outlets, 24 minutes by car. (All driving estimates: Google Maps)

Verified with the front desk on March 20, 2013: pet policy, free Wi-Fi, free breakfast, guest laundry and microwave and mini-fridge availability.
The Good
The reviews consulted for this analysis were mixed. Guests gave positive feedback on the location, rooms, rates and service.

The hotel's location was a big draw for many reviewers. They liked that it was easily accessible and thought it was conveniently near the highway. Some guests felt the hotel was quiet despite its proximity to the major road while others thought it was convenient for accessing the Peace Bridge.

Several guests thought the rooms were very clean and that the room rates were quite reasonable for the Niagara area.

The staff, according to some reviewers, were friendly.

The Bad
As mentioned above, the reviews consulted for this analysis were mixed with guests giving negative feedback on the furniture and decor, the beds, the breakfast and the bathtubs.

According to many guests, the furnishings and decor were dated. Some guests described the furniture as worn while others felt the decor could be updated.

The beds did not receive rave reviews and were described as uncomfortable and small by several guests. 

The breakfast was another source of disappointment for several reviewers. They thought it was limited and the seating area was small.

A few guests had issues with the bathtubs. They claimed the bathtubs drained too slowly or were heavily clogged up.
