Best Hotels in Niagara Falls Canada | Old Stone Inn Boutique Hotel | Travel Like a Prince

Have you ever been to Niagara Falls? It’s a great place, and honestly – I LOVE it! I can’t pinpoint exactly why. The natural beauty, the variety of things to do, and the fun family memories all come into play. If you are wondering where to stay when visiting Niagara Falls, I have a fabulous suggestion for you!

I was a guest of the Old Stone Inn. Opinions are my own. This post also contains affiliate links.

Where to Stay When Visiting Niagara Falls

During my trip to Ontario, I stayed at the Old Stone Inn Boutique Hotel, which in my opinion is one of the best hotels in Niagara Falls Canada! I adore places that have a bit of history, and this inn has a lovely one. The structure was originally built as a flour mill in 1904. There was a devastating fire in 1912 that left only the stone walls and flooring.

In the years following, it changed hands, was abandoned, and endured a second fire. In 1977 someone saw the beauty in the structure and refurbished it into the inn it is today. From tragedy into triumph, this historic hotel truly shines! Here’s why.

The Outside Is Welcoming

Bright colors and lovely flowers unite! I was there in the summer, so the foliage flourished, but the bright orange curtains are welcoming all year round.

Just take a peek at what awaits! On-site parking is also available, which is both important and convenient.

The Lobby Shows Off the Stone Walls

You can view the stone structure from the outside, and it’s also evident in the lobby. So well designed! To think of all the stories those walls could tell is amazing.

Another plus about this, which is a nice point about hotels near Niagara Falls, is that you can come back and grab a bite to eat at the on-site bar or restaurant. There is also coffee in the lobby in the morning to jump-start your day.

The Rooms Are Cozy

My daughter and I slept well and were very rested for our adventures, which is essential when considering hotels in Niagara Falls Ontario. It’s close to everything, yet it is in a quiet location to avoid crowds and the hustle and bustle of being smack in the middle of the attractions.

What a great respite at the end of the day! I took my own photos, but the last set is from the Old Stone Inn Boutique Hotel as I don’t feel that mine quite did the room justice.

Also, of note, is that there is a fully equipped bathroom, but there is also a sink and mirror in the room itself. It’s great for privacy while also allowing two people to get ready and have their own space to do so!

The Grounds are Lovely

Sometimes after – or during – a long day of sightseeing, it is nice to come back to your home base and relax. Not only does the Old Stone Inn Boutique Hotel have a lovely indoor pool, but there is an inner courtyard.

It is perfect for curling up with a good book or enjoying a glass of wine at the end of the day. The pool area has a grill in case you want to skip the restaurants and prep your meals. Take a peek at more of the stone walls on the property, too!

It Is One of the Convenient Niagara Falls Hotels

I loved the location! We left our car and were able to walk to the Clifton Hill area attractions (games, fun houses, restaurants, mini-golf, and more!) and also to the falls from the hotel. The Jolly Cut easily leads from the inn to Niagara Falls.

What a fabulous way to sneak in a bit more exercise while not having to move a car. It really was convenient! The map below shows the walkways to some of the attractions.

The first photo below is at the end of the walkway that leads to Clifton Hill. Hadley is leading the way through the Jolly Cut after a day of touring, and the last photo is of me at the falls after heading through the Jolly Cut pass.

I really like being able to stay at hotels near Niagara Falls that enable walking to the attractions, and the Old Stone Inn Boutique Hotel tops my list!

  1. I definitely think the Canadian side is the best area to stay in as there is so much more to do. I unfortunately only visited for the day, though I wish I had stayed overnight to see the falls light up at night. This hotel looks amazing and I would love to stay there on my next visit! I love that they used the surviving structure of the old mill to create it.

  2. I stayed here! I remember this place during my honeymoon. It is so ideally located near the falls and the town (which I call the tourist trap area). However I managed to great sleep here, the comfort of the beds helped very much. Loved the warm welcome I received from staff, would totally recommend a stay here also. 

    • Ha! I TOTALLY love that you stayed there, too. What a fun thing. And yes – it’s super close to the tourist area and the falls. It’s super quiet and convenient. I’m glad you liked it, too!! <3

  3. I have always wanted to visit Niagara Falls, and I must say that now my stay idea is also sorted after reading your blog. I am surely going to consider staying in Old Stone Inn Boutique Hotel when I visit Niagara Falls, because I am in love with the room. 

  4. Niagara is close-ish to me! I have been once when I was a young girl, but now that I live in Montreal, perhaps I will go again sometime soon! This hotel looks absolutely beautiful. As a young traveler on a budget, I am not 100% sure I will be able to stay here, but maybe one day!

  5. I like the hotel – it’s very charming, delightful. The rooms are so cozy and romantic. I would love to stay there! I haven’t been to Niagara Falls yet. But they are on my list, so I will take your recommendations when planning a trip.

  6. I had a stopover in Toronto in Summer last year before heading to Cuba. I sooo wanted to head to the Niagara Falls. Unfortunately, we only had around 7 hours so we were told it wouldn’t be possible in the time we had. I was devastated! We made the vow to definitely come back. The Old Stone Inn Boutique Hotel looks a fantastic place to stay. I love the design and could picture myself sitting by that pool! Sounds like you really enjoyed your stay

  7. Oh wow! This place looks really nice. We also prefer hotels that have a little more personality or history rather than a chain. We often choose an Inn or Bed & Breakfast over a regular hotel. We have not visited Niagara Falls yet, even though we have been planning it, but when we do, we would like to stay somewhere close by. I have seen that some hotels have an amazing view over the waterfall from their upper floors. 

  8. I too prefer places with history. The story of triumph of Old Stone Inn Boutique Hotel makes it all more interesting. Everything looks stylish, cozy and welcoming. 

  9. A building more than a 100 years old? That’s my kinda place to stay! Good to know they’re refurbished it well! That greenery against the bright orange curtains is perfect! Those lounge chairs would be perfect place to unwind after a day-out in Niagra. Awesome that its just walkable for major attractions.
