Days Inn Jordan Station / St Catharines
When we visited the Niagara region, it was in the middle of a festival which filled up most of the hotels in the area. We booked into the local Days Inn for the first two days, switching to a different hotel when we could. All we were hoping for from the Day's Inn was a convenient location and a quiet place to spend the night.
At about $80/night, this wasn't super cheap, but compared to many hotels in this high tourist location, it was about as cheap as you can get! Their claim that this was in St. Catharines was a bit far fetched. It is squarely in Jordan Station, about 15 minutes from St. Catharines. They say it has five restaurants. Actually, it has ZERO restaurants. What they mean is that they are NEAR a Subway, a family restaurant and a few other fast food locations.
Our friend from England, Peter, had been expecting to use their laundry facilities to clean some clothing, since he was out for 2 weeks. Despite their website claim that they had facilities, they of course had none.
We went out for the day of winery visits, and when we got back our room magnetic keys no longer worked. We had to have Peter call into the front desk and wait 10 minutes for them to come out and give us knew keys. Maybe it was related to the fact that they had my name backwards in their system - from my Expedia reservation - and couldn't change or fix it.
The back door opened out to a full length walkway that went along all the back of the hotel. This was our "balcony". They said they had a pool and whirlpool, but given the shoddy state of the room and bathroom, we decided not to give that a try.
If you're planning a trip to the Niagara area, it's well worth it to call ahead and stay in some of the nearby hotels that are a few dollars more but far higher quality.
