Editor's Analysis
Updated on Jul 10, 2012
Overview
Located on Clifton Hill, (known as the "Street of Fun by the Falls"), the Thriftlodge Clifton Hill is situated in downtown Niagara Falls, and 16.8 km (approximately 21 minutes driving time) from Niagara District Airport (YCM).

With 38 rooms and in close proximity to many major tourist attractions, the Thriftlodge is positioned 350 metres from Casino Niagara (roughly 5 minutes walking time), 1 km from the Maid of the Mist (approximately 2 minutes driving time), and 8.5 km from the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens (roughly 15 minutes driving time). 

Shopping is also close to the hotel, such as Canada One Outlets which features 40 brand name stores (roughly 10 minutes driving time), the Fun Factory for gifts and souvenirs (approximately 21 seconds walking time), or Clare's Harley-Davidson at the Falls (approximately 4 seconds walking time).

Many nightlife destinations are also nearby; The Strike Rock N' Bowl Entertainment Complex (roughly 1 minute walking time), Rumours Nightclub (roughly 3 minutes walking time), and Yuk Yuk's Comedy Club (roughly 4 minutes walking time).

In addition to free outdoor parking, all rooms include 2 double beds and free high-speed internet. The hotel's on-site dining option is the Clifton Family Restaurant, which serves American cuisine, and is open daily from 8:00am to 10:00pm. The hotel also offers an outdoor heated swimming pool, on-site laundry services, ATM, currency exchange and computer access. The Thriftlodge is pet-friendly, and the front door is wheelchair accessible. The hotel is also within walking distance to several local restaurants; Ruby Tuesday's (roughly 1 minute walking time), Hard Rock Cafe (approximately 2 minutes walking time), and Kelsey's (approximately 5 minutes walking time). (All distances and travel time estimates - Google Maps).

Verified with a Front Desk Agent: All 38 rooms contain 2 double beds and free wireless internet. (Call date: June 25th, 2012).
The Good
Guests complimented the Thriftlodge Clifton Hill on its location, friendly staff, and value.

Many guests commented on the "perfect" and "amazing" location of the hotel in relation to Falls' many tourist attractions, restaurants, and nightlife.  Some lodgers also described the Thriftlodge as "close to the action" and "steps to everything".

Several reviewers complimented the Thriftlodge's "friendly" and "helpful staff", and mentioned they added significantly to their overall experience.

The hotel was touted as "good for the price", "good value" and "economical" by some guests. In addition, the rooms were described as "clean" and "comfy" by a few reviewers.

Some lodgers were positive regarding the free parking and called it a "great advantage", as free parking along Clifton Hill is sparse and paid parking can cost up to $20 per day in the summer months.

The Bad
Guests reflected negatively upon the hotel's noise levels and decor.

Many guests commented on the noise from the karaoke bar located next door. However, the hotel does ask guests to sign a waiver upon checking in, stipulating they are aware of the karaoke bar's proximity and potential noise.

Some guests remarked upon the "dated" decor of the hotel, saying it was "from the 1980s".

A couple guests complained about issues with the bathroom taps and plumbing, however such problems were fixed upon letting the front desk know.
