Niagara’s Comfort Inn Clifton Hill is one of this city’s staples. Located on the popular Clifton Hill strip, it is a tucked away hidden gem. The driveway leading to this Comfort Inn is a “blink-and-you-can-miss-it” patch of road. It’s sandwiched between the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum and the Wizard’s Golf . Once you turn down that narrow stretch of road and off the hustle and bustle of Clifton Hill, you will find the 185-room hotel tucked away to the right, directly adjacent to the Dinosaur Adventure Golf and North America’s famous 175-foot Niagara SkyWheel.
In the late 1950’s, the Park Motor Hotel (currently the Comfort Inn Clifton Hill) was built on a large portion of the former Bush estate. Harry Oakes owned the Park Motor Hotel and HOCO Entertainment & Resorts (Sir Harry Oakes Company) continues to own the hotel to this day. The Park Motor Hotel later transformed into the Comfort Inn Clifton Hill as part of the Choice Hotels franchise in the late 1980’s.

The Comfort Inn Clifton Hill’s location sets it apart from the rest. Not only is it situated right on Clifton Hill (Niagara’s entertainment and dining district), but it is just one block to the falls, and a few minutes walk from Fallsview Boulevard — the place to go for the newest and most contemporary restaurants and facilities such as the Fallsview Casino.
The hotel is ideal for families looking to save time and money as the rates are reasonable and stay competitively lower than similar hotels nearby. You’ll cut your spending costs in half by parking in its available lot and leaving it there for the duration of your visit. Its close proximity to everything — literally a hop away from Niagara’s most popular attractions, make it a valuable selling point when looking for a good Niagara Falls hotel to stay at.
See for yourself what people are saying on Trip Advisor — this is why the Comfort Inn Clifton Hill was voted a “Traveler’s Choice 2013” award for being a top “Family Hotel”. You’ll notice a pattern of guests echoing the same sentiments of “location, location, location”.
