Overview

About the property

Hard to beat location

The River Lane Condos are located within a stones throw to Casino Niagara, the beautiful US Falls itself, Hard Rock Café, the Bird Kingdom, Restaurants, Clifton Hill and more.

Hard to beat location, no car needed to Falls/Attractions so no need to look for parking, just walk a minute or two and be part of the action. Located on the end of John Street, the River Lane Condos allow you to watch the fireworks from your front porch and to your left, is river road and the beautiful gorge (Niagara River). Great hiking and biking trails on top of it all.

I have just opened up two more units at a different house: #No car needed to Falls: Property 4532673 & @No car needed to Falls: Property 4507578 . Please look at these properties if your dates aren't available in this listing.

The Space

This is an older home (100 + years) that has three separate and private apartments in it. The apartments themselves have updated décor. The exterior of the house and lobby are a work-in progress and (still need work). Windows are very old.

There are three units in the building, this is the two of three that is ready for guests to stay at.

Apartments #1 & #3 are ready. Each pic specifies if it is apartment #1 or #3. Please contact me about availability or request the specific unit when you book and I will let you know if it is open.

Linens, Towels and every kitchen item you need to cook a meal is all there for you! Professionally cleaned between each guest can gives you the peace of mind of a hotel plus all the benefits of staying at an apartment. If anything is missing, please let me know and I will call the cleaning company.

Getting Around

Free, dedicated parking space for each condo, directly beside the house.

Other Things to Note

Please note: Exterior of building under renovation (older home - working to get the exterior to match interior). Windows are very old and will be replaced in 2018. TV has Netflix only though Roku.

Apartment #1 - One bedroom with queen size bed & pull out queen size sofa (brand new July 2016)

Apartment #3 - Two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed (as shown in pictures) & the other bedroom has a double bed

If you require a high chair or play yard, please let us know upon booking so we can make it available to you.

Disappointing

  • 2 of 5

The lighting in the kitchen was very dim and difficult to see around at night. The dishwasher did not work and there were no dish clothes/towels or soap for hand washing them.

The shower had tiles laying on the floor, the towel bar was broken off the wall and the shelf behind the toilet was unstable.

The ceiling had visible water damage.

The cost in the reservation appeared to be $140 per night however once all the fees etc were added in the costs exceeded $200 per night that I never would have paid had I realized all the extra fees that would be included. The website is not very transparent about additional costs. The only additional cost I was aware of was a $20+ cleaning fee.

The windows were filthy, I understand they are old but they can still be cleaned.

The only positive thing was the dining room was bright and roomy.

Can't beat the location.

  • 3 of 5

My family and I arrived several hours early as we drove from Wisconsin all night. I messaged the owner to ask if we could park at the property before check in and he responded rather quickly with YES! Bonus! This location couldn't be more perfect as we enjoyed walking to the falls each night while in town. Saved us on paying the expense for parking. Also, the bus stops were close by.

As for the apartment, it was quite spacious (we had the first floor unit) and charming with lots of character. The owner did mention in his description that the building was still being restored so we expected to see work in progress, as it was. Sheets and towels were clean as were all the dishes.

Some minor notes to keep in mind. The dishwasher was not in working order for us. We didn't do much cooking but enjoyed quick breakfasts and late night pizza in the evenings. Had to wash dishes, this wasn't the end of the world. The front door to our apartment was very loud and creaky which didn't bother us but I was worried we'd disturb other guests. No washrags were provided for the bathroom or kitchen. We are from the states so we are used to them being part of the supplies of the unit. We ended up running to Walmart to pick some up, no biggie. The handle to the shower kept falling off so we would turn on/off the shower and set the handle aside so it wouldn't fall onto the tile. Also, the shower didn't drain real fast so we had to stagger our shower times so the water wouldn't over flow onto the bathroom floor. (No tub just shower) I want to lastly comment that we didn't spend much time in the unit so none of this was really an issue for us. We would stay here again.

Comfortable home feel, so much better than a hotel

  • 5 of 5

We stayed on the first floor. Comfortable home away from home, enjoyed cooking our meals daily. Very relaxed atmosphere. Didn't feel the need to rush to go anywhere to accommodate housekeeping like in a hotel. Loved sitting on the front porch at night and watching the fireworks! Close to the action yet a quiet area. Definitely recommend it!

As advertised!

  • 4 of 5

This place is exactly what our family of 3 was looking for - we were within walking distance to most everything we wanted to do, and a WeGo stop was very close for the things that weren't or when we got tired of walking. This old house is a renovation-in-progress and we were a little apprehensive when we pulled up, but when we got into our apartment (#3) we knew we made the right choice. It had everything we needed - kitchen, two bedrooms, a bathroom with a nice shower, and a view of the nightly fireworks at the falls! It was a little warm during the few days that we were there, so we had the A/C cranked up to 11 most of the time and the provided fan running to keep it cool as apartment 3 is on the top floor, but it was otherwise very comfortable. A good value!

Nice condo, well located, but missing some details

  • 3 of 5

we had a nice stay rom the 2nd day on this condo as the first day, the air conditioning was not working at all and it was really hot outside. Condo is well located, just steps away from all attractions, nice size for 2 adults and 2 small kids (sofa bed was not confo for the kids however). Kitchen is not well equipped, decoration is nice but some of the things were not functioning well (no towel bar, faucet in the shower was falling on the floor and some areas need paint. Could have used more instructions on close out..where to leave the trash, leave the key, etc..
