A total dump. Welfare hotel with crime everywhere in and outside if it. Bad part of town, garbage everywhere. Rude staff who are totally content with everything being terrible. Room has a very, very old radiator heater, torn up beds and a RAT roaming around.

I schedule two days of staying, the 7th and the 8th, but there were some accidents on the road and my stay in Niagara Falls put me behind schedule, so I called them and let them know and the person in the other line said that I need to be there so they could cancel one night, we showed up all tired on the 8th around midnight and when we arrived they told me your reservation has been cancelled.

Good evening for starters i cancelled this reservation at the property. Unable to receive the simplest assistance with my bags. I qas professional an polite as the military has taught me well. I asked the front desk person who rarely made eye contract about wat jing my belongings while i went to add additional funds to my card. It wasn't allowed. Taking my belongings out after cancelling 2 of my straps broke spilling items all over the desk vlerk nor the security who qas istting near by moved they jist kept watching their videos on their phones. A homeless guy passing by helpled me. Very disappointed. I would like a complete an immediate discount or credit towards any other reasonable accommodations giving my family an I the type of servoce ive come to expect grom travelocity. I never fill these out in a negative fashion asi know everyone has bad days vut yhis was beyond unacceptable.

Elevators were not working, even their housekeeper was complaining about it. There was nowhere to put your toiletries in the bathroom.
