The Fallsview Lodge was the AAAA Royal Motel until about a year ago. The sign looked almost the same then though it advertised “rooms for any budget” where it now says “low rates”. It had terrible reviews then and still has. There are many other motels/hotels to choose in the Clifton Hill area of Niagara Falls if you need to stay overnight.

  1. I’ve stayed there! Love Niagara Falls 🙂

  2. Strange that a place near a tourist icon doesn’t have better accommodation and therefore could offer higher prices + guaranteed to get customers and good reviews.

  3. There’s lots of signs to see in this photo. Interesting!

  4. Sad to hear the new management didn’t make any difference in quality. With all the nearby competition, one would think they might try.

  5. This looks like an original sign from the 1950s. Good find.

  6. Nice find Lesley. I bet at one time that it was one of the better motels at the falls. Judging by the style of the sign it has been there for a long time.

  7. I’ve never understood the draw of a “jacuzzi room”. Who wants to take a bath in the middle of their hotel room?

  8. I hate to be judgemental but sometimes you can tell a place is going to be cheesey just by the sign. I love the sign though.

  9. makes me want to go on vacation!

  10. I collect old motel postcards – I should have a look at this one to see if I have one from way back.
    And next time you’re up in Southampton, go check the Amphitheatre – it’s free to walk around and the gardens are lovely in the summer.

  11. you answered my question without my asking! close to Niagara Falls, makes sense to have several motels.

  12. hee hee…That sign does seem to tell the tale!
