Birthday at Surfside Inn

We were so pleasantly surprised how nice and accommodating the whole place is. Very clean and beautiful beachfront,pool area and a rooftop cabana. Very nice staff and the cleanliness of the rooms was terrific.
I mistakenly left my bathing suit on the back of the bathroom door hook and I called and the hotel and they offered to mail it... more

We were stuck and unprepared to stay the night. So when we arrived we were estatic to find a motel so close to the falls and attractions The owner is great! He was really nice and accommodating. The room itself was very dirty. For the price we were expecting it. It is a shame though because what a great location.... more

Location of Hotel Great - Service extremely Bad
June 30, 2013

While the location of the Hotel was great and access was not an issue. The Service and lack of amenities were a cause that I doubt we will be staying there again. No maid/room cleaning service between the two nights, no extra towels, or clean sheets available. AC worked only intermittently and no working TV. Glad I brought a Laptop and a few DVD's to watch.

Cheap but dirty
March 16, 2013

My family and I stayed here on a family vacation to Niagara Falls. For the price, we weren't expecting much, but the rooms were worse than we thought. Moldy wallpaper, dirty towels, and unclean carpets greeted us. The mattresses were rock hard and the pillows were flat. The only redeeming quality was the location, a five minute drive from the... more

I have known this motel from its origin, I have never seen so much deteriation and lack of maintainance, I paId for a first class room and was not satisfied, it needs a modernization. We had to put the heater in the bathroom on as the one in the room did not work properly.Nothing

Nice hotel to stay
September 18, 2012

Very good value for money. Nice room without hassles. It also has Wi-Fi in case you need internet. Owner is very helpful and accommodating. It is a quiet place away from all noise near the falls but within 5 minutes drive from the falls. It is also very close to Wonderland. You cannot ask for more.

Depends on your expectations
September 02, 2012

Well if you are just looking for a cheap place to stay and want a nice friendly person to check you in then no complaints. However if cleanliness and appearance is an issue drive right past. Mold on the walls, wallpaper filthy dirty, dirt everywhere. Probably the worst room I have ever slept in but wasn't expecting much.

Clean it up
July 04, 2012

Would have been nice if someone at sometime bothered to dust or wipe off fingerprints from the mirrors. What a dump! Goes to show you get what you pay for. A shame, too, because at onetime the Surfside was the chaming best kept secret in Niagara Falls.

This hotel is completely misrepresented by Hotels.com. The room was FILTHY and a request for cleaning was ignored. The room had no window to open, no hair dryer, no clock, no sofa bed, no tissues, and 1 roll of TP. That's a first in 30 years of travel! There is one iron on the property and no ironing board. Sheets/pillow cases were not changed. Yuck! Good location though. We were envious of the... more

We were very disappointed with this motel. I booked there because of good reviews, it was away from the downtown area crowds with shuttle service, Wi-Fi and a reasonable cost for a king w/hot tub. Upon arrival, we were told shuttle service was discontinued (resulting in $70 total cab fares we were not expecting). Wi-Fi was inconsistent. There was no... more

Surfside Inn : not radical, not tubular but definately gnarly
August 03, 2010

First, I'd like to point out that the staff was friendly and willing to help but it didn't exactly compensate for the false advertising or rough state of the room. We searched on their website because it was affordable and seemed delightfully tacky and I'm sure it would have been 20 years ago.
This was our experience.

Parking is free, service is VERY Friendly, and very helpful with what to see, do, and how to get there. We arrived before check-in time and since the room was already cleaned, they let us check in early. That was great! It was about a five minute drive and a 30 minute walk, with a good pace, and had a nice little restaurant two doors down where you could get a good meal at a very decent price!... more
