The Good
Guest reviewers had mixed opinions overall about this hotel but the ones who appreciated it most were those who came to play in the waterpark with their young children.

Guests typically described the rooms as decent. They were clean, spacious, with comfortable beds and some appreciated having mini-fridges and microwaves.

Many guests enjoyed the on-site water park. Small children had a lot of fun there, the staff were good, there were plenty of lifeguards and it was easy to keep track of the kids due to its small size and layout. Guests also liked the warm temperature of the waterpark. Occasionally guests liked the arcade game area.

Guests liked the location for having neaby access to restaurants and groceries. Some liked being close enough to the Falls, but not in the busy zone.

Guests often found staff pleasant and wanting to help.

The on-site spa was touted as relaxing and professional by a few reviewers.
The Bad
Many guests provided negative feedback in reviews found online.

Some said the rooms were dated or worn and sometimes guests complained about housekeeping staff not showing up to clean the rooms and otherwise not detailed in their cleaning. 

There were also other complaints: poor cable channels with no good movie or sport channels, poor Wi-Fi in some rooms, low-grade shampoo which was combined with conditioner and body wash all in one dispenser, sticky surfaces in the rooms and floors not fully clean or vacuumed in the guest room.

Guests often complained of extra charges and felt that these added up to a price higher than they had budgeted for. They mentioned a resort fee, parking and taxes. The resort fee was an irritation to some guests who felt that the larger the room cost, the more they had to pay for this fee. They were also told it was to cover free Wi-Fi, free newspapers and printing in the business centre which made it feel unfair.

Noise was definitely an issue for guests with so many children. Some said they were allowed to run and yell in the hallways. Some said noise transferred from nearby rooms as well.

Some thought the waterpark closed too early (8 pm) and opened too late (10 am), was too small for children over 10 years of age and was crowded during their stay. Some also said the gym and spa opened late and closed early.

Occasionally guests complained of having to park in the overflow lot as customers using the waterpark for the day had taken up spaces nearer the hotel.

Some noted that the hotel only had one washer and dryer for its guest laundry facility.
