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.

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..

Don't decorate before the basics are right

  • 3 of 5

This review is for third floor Apartment 3.

Most positive reviews of this property list improvements that the owner should make to complete the apartment. Since those reviews are mostly over a year old there has been time for improvements, but none have been made. Sheet cleanliness was an issue.

There are decorator touches but they appear to have been put in before the basic renovation was complete and renovation was never finished . Cleaning service seems to have been hired out to the lowest bidder.

A property can be a work in progress, but this rental is not being improved. The apartments have potential, the price (for Niagara Falls) is ok, but unfortunately, at least until the owner completes the needed fixes, this isn't quite a great VRBO.

PRO: Great location, walk to the falls, good floor space, full sized refrigerator, range, decent internet, felt safe.

CON: No refund policy. Incomplete apartment renovation. Questionable sheets. Slow HomeAway damage deposit refund.

- The linens had black specks and a human hair. No way to know for sure, but we seriously wondered if the sheets were changed after the previous guests. Hair in bedroom 1 sheets, a speckled part of the bedroom 2 sheets (foot area) when we pulled the covers back. Not good.

- Kitchen is pretty, but so short on cabinets that the dishes are stored under the sink.

- Bathroom was clean but has zero counter space, available shelving, or anywhere else to put toiletries.

- No window or air vent in bedroom 2. Awesome if your kids like small, windowless caves.

- No screen on bedroom 1 window. Other windows that won't open.

- The living room air conditioner works, but extra trim and insulation pieces were abandoned in a pile next to it.

- A broken window was fixed using layers of clear packing tape to cover up a medium 3" hole.

- Many other unfinished details, e.g. loose hot water handle in shower, missing handle trim, broken blinds, ceiling "panels" literally tacked in place. Poor fit and finish in multiple areas.

- Somewhat crusty microwave interior. Not terrible.

- Very weak info binder. No instructions for checkout, trash, recycling, etc.

The no-refund policy says it all. This is not someone's home, it's a semi-dilapidated house that underwent partial renovation and is now being used as short term rental units.

3 stars. It has some positives. Just don't expect too much.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

The first floor apartment was very roomy and well appointed. When we had an issue, we were able to communicate with the owner by email fairly quickly. He seemed very friendly and eager to please. It was obvious that they tried hard to make this apartment comfortable for it's guests.

You can't beat the location. We kept our car parked at the free parking space and walked everywhere. We were at the falls for a wedding and had other family staying at a hotel close to the falls. We had no problem meeting up with them frequently.
