Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just back from our nine day stay here, hotel is a bit out of the way not much around shopping centre which just sells gifts is just up the road and the hungry moose food court, these were both only open until 4pm as a lot of places close early after labour day, so we went into town every day. There is also down town about a 15min walk up the road which we only discovered a couple of days before we left. My advice is to google the area to find out whats open, we also used the local pizza takeaway a couple of times which was very good. The hotel its self is fine large rooms comfy beds and decent sized bathroom my only gripe is that it was not cleaned very often and bedding was never changed while there. Would like to give a shout out to Greg from reception who worked the back shift lovely friendly and very helpful guy. Also very nice staff who work in the breakfast bar apart from one girl who insisted we put plastic gloves on to get our breakfast one morning never had to do that with any of the other staff, think it was way over the top especially when a girl put the cooked waffles in container with her bare hands and very fancy nail art lol. So overall okay but wouldnt stay here again if i ever returned to Niagara.

Was a quiet and clean place when we stayed there for a night. Few guest nevertheless were still smoking right outside of the back entrance door, with one lady bringing up a folding chair to seat, smoke and read the book... needless to say the smoke was getting into the neighboring units to the left and above left of the entrance (therefore avoid by all means staying in the units #s between 1 and 6, e.g. 102, 202, 104, 204, 106, 206) Niagara Region recently updated the Smoke and Vape-Free Outdoor Spaces By-law. This is one line that applies here - "(smoke is prohibited) Within nine meters of an entrance or exit of a publicly accessible place, building or workplace (new)" It will be a good thing for Hotel's Management to post permanent signs in related areas and enforce it, to continue maintaining the smoke-free status of the hotel - the competitive advantage that brings in many tourists with families.

Very clean. Free parking free breakfast. The staff from the cafeteria super friendly! The front desk employee at night did a great job during our late check-in. Close to the falls. Great location. No elevators. The pool is clean. The building is dated.

I and my family stayed 2 days at the River Rapids hotel. We wanted to see the Niagara Falls but not live in the circus which is in the area around. For us River Rapids had perfect location - as we didn't want to drive our car download - a taxi costs C$14 . The hotel is a bit dated - but big clean rooms , breakfast was a bit boring. Big pool which my kids liked - we didn't use the sauna The reception people where very polite and even called our room after our check in to follow up if everything has okay.

I am very happy to say we took our grandson who is four years old to this hotel… We had our own entrance they look like cute little townhomes… The value you get especially in Niagara Falls is outstanding… The hotel is older but has been renovated… The staff was wonderful and extremely helpful… Reese was the girl who greeted us they let us check in early because we showed up at noon… Greg and Emmanuel we’re also very helpful… The pool was so warm we had a great time… The location was very close to the Wego bus made it very convenient to get to all the attractions… Rapid Rivers Hotel is the best kept secret I definitely would recommend this place ..great value for the money… Like I said very clean very quiet I love the rooms that have the outside entrance… Was nice for us to be able to sit outside on the porch at night while our grandson was sleeping …definitely this will be our hotel of choice next time we go to the falls… Oh and not to mention you get a fully cooked breakfast scrambled eggs sausage pastries coffee juice everything you could imagine… or Do you have a Keurig coffee maker in your room with a fridge to keep some cold drinks…You can’t beat the price… I was very impressed… They gave us fresh towels every day and toiletries plus the pool comes with towels… I definitely was Impressed with this quaint little hotel… Big shout out to the staff thank you again… See you soon

We booked this hotel as a long weekend trip to Niagra Falls for my sons wedding. We had a great view of the Niagra River from the 4th floor ! It was a good value, great location, clean rooms, and free parking. I think the best feature was the free breakfast and the amazing staff in the breakfast area ! I can’t say enough about Karen who runs the breakfast eatery ! She not only made the breakfast area very safe with the COVID protocols, she also offered a wonderful array of breakfast food to choose from each morning ! She was such a genuine kind person who took time to talk to us about my sons wedding and even helped with suggestions of where to get a cake! We had a wonderful stay here and would definitely come back!

The River Rapids Inn in Niagara Falls has a lot going for it – good value, a great location, clean well-maintained rooms, free parking, breakfast included, well-enforced COVID protocols and a helpful/agreeable staff at the reception. Karen who runs the breakfast eatery is also a star – she works hard to make the breakfast area more COVID-safe than any other dining establishment in the region. We did have ONE NEGATIVE EXPERIENCE and that came when we tried to make reservations directly with the hotel by phone. It entailed a couple telephone exchanges worthy of a Monty Python episode – though it was difficult to see any humour in them at the time. It is hard to understand why they were so prickly, even more so given the positive experience of our subsequent stay at the hotel. Maybe it had more to do with the cumulated stresses on the hotel business through the pandemic?

Thank you for your review Not sure what your speaking about in regard to your Monty Python statement but being picky is not a bad thing asking questions and making sure we have wonderful guests staying with us and helping them navigate our city and their stay is not a bad thing either We strive on customer service and exceeding our guests expectations We also saved you money booking directly with us

We elected to stay here during a very short mid-week getaway to the area. LOCATION: Due to covid, we didn't want to stay right in the middle of all the tourist attractions, so this worked out well. We were mainly visiting Niagara-on-the-Lake and other towns along the wine route, and this facility worked out really conveniently as a bit of a base. We did drive to the Falls themselves one evening - it was super close. There are no real grounds or anything at the hotel, and some of the surrounding area isn't the greatest, but it is a short drive to restaurants, parks, and otherwise. It was also nice to be situated along the river parkway and made for a convenient drive either to other towns in our plans or to tourist destinations or to restaurants. HOTEL: it was very quiet when we were there; not sure how many guests were checked-in (note: we went mid-week, not a weekend) but despite it being a quiet time, the staff at the front desk were very nice every time we passed by. As others have noted, there are no elevators which didn't bother us, but worth noting for others. We stayed on the 2nd floor so didn't have much of a view from the room, but that wasn't a priority for us. They did have breakfast - looked like a mixture of hot and cold items - and that breakfast room seemed clean with good covid protocols as well. I only grabbed a coffee so didn't eat any of it, felt kinda' bad for the staff member working there room as there was no one else there! Hope other guests took advantage of the breakfast so nothing went to waste. ROOM: really good size (2 queen beds, standard room) and exceptionally clean for a budget hotel. All in-room amenities - WiFi, TV, coffee maker, mini-fridge, hairdryer worked fine. I would have liked more accessible outlets to plug in various devices, but so few hotels have enough that it wasn't unusual to have to unplug a light in order to plug in devices. As others have mentioned, the bathroom was small but nothing too unusual - I've stayed in far worse for sure. The hallways were very hot in temperature (we were travelling during a humid, muggy heatwave) but the in-room air conditioner worked really well (yay!). All-in-all, it was very good value for the price and while I don't know what it is like during a "normal" summer, it was a good choice for us for a short stay during the 2nd covid summer! Oh, and they do have a pool but it was closed while we were there. They made that closure very clear in advance so it wasn't a surprise nor a disappointment.

The location is close to all the attractions and to the Niagara Gorge where we like to hike. The rooms are very clean, bathrooms are very clean and well kept. The staff are amazing, Donna goes above and beyond for her customers. Travis has been amazing too. Breakfast was well organized and very clean. Best place to stay because it has everything and a great staff. Will be visiting again and this was always our second stay this summer.
