The massive Niagara Falls lies on the border between New York in the United States and Ontario in Canada, and is a popular tourist attraction from both sides. The views from the U.S. side are said to be better because the falls on the Canadian side (only really visible from the U.S.) are more impressive. But the Canadian side tends to be a little more popular because of the additional attractions and accommodation options. No matter which side you start on, chances are good you will want to visit the other side as well just to get the full picture. And either way, you will want a cheap hotel in Niagara Falls for your stay.
While this is a major tourist attraction for both the U.S. and Canada, you will not find many major luxury hotels on either side of the falls. The good news is that you will find lots of cheap hotels in Niagara Falls. Even during the busy summer high season, you can find good deals on budget hotels on both sides of the border. There are more options on the Canada side, however, so if you are really looking for the most variety of choice you will want to head north.
Many cheap hotels in Niagara Falls offer views of the falls from some of the rooms – some rooms come with a partial view, and others with a “full falls view,” so be sure to get specific about which one you prefer. And not surprisingly, you should be prepared to pay a bit more for a full falls view room, especially in the summer.
On the Canadian side, these are some of the cheap hotels in Niagara you should consider – The Eastwood Lodge (a B&B inn a short walk from the falls, free WiFi, some rooms with balconies with view of falls), Brock Plaza Hotel (234 rooms, directly across from the falls, many rooms with falls view), and the Sheraton on the Falls Hotel (670 rooms, directly across from the falls, spa on site).
On the American side, check out these hotels – Fallside Hotel (200 rooms, across from Niagara River, 1 mile from the falls) and Holiday Inn Niagara Falls (more than 180 guest rooms, located in downtown Niagara Falls, minutes from the falls).
