Came to ridgeway for our 10th anniversary. Decided to forgo the expensive Niagara Falls room and do a smaller quaint motel and a local restaurant for our night away. The crystal beach motel room that we stayed in was very clean and cute. The kitchenette area was very nice, the bed comfortable and the furnishings nice. The outside of the...

If anyone has stayed in the motel previously, you will be amazed at the changes. The motel changed ownership early 2015, and they started redoing the rooms right away. Huge improvements last year, even more this year. The room we stayed in this year was so nice, didn't have that motel feel. King sized bed, good pillows, bar fridge, 4...

The location of the motel was ok , the room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. There were some amenities missing however .For example no coffee maker , microwave or blow dryer, very basic . Could use more insulation between floors and walls, you could hear people outside and in the building, I'm a light sleeper so this...

We used to stay at this motel every year but you need to be aware of a few things I witnessed on my last visit a month ago, ownership has changed and its nothing more than a dumpy trailer park now, they have decided to rent U-Haul trucks out of their parking lot which declasses the motel, they now rent...

This is a cute little old place that is a complete departure from the world of Comfort Inns, Holiday Inns, and their ilk. A darling little town, a quaint hotel and a beautiful beach, what's not to like. This is not Miami so be prepared to unwind in a small town atmosphere. The pool is out of operation which was...

Thank you Jim. Yes Crystal Beach is a beautiful 'Hideaway in Niagara'. Among the several great things about this town are of course the beaches, the town itself, the proximity to the US Border and Niagara Falls. There is a lot to do here for people of all ages. We are glad you enjoyed the Motel. Each room and the...

Recently stayed at this motel for the week with several friends and loved it! Each of our rooms were uniquely and exquisitely decorated and very clean. We also made several requests of the staff and each were accommodated and met with hospitality. The distance to the beach was easy enough that my kids and I could walk back to the...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night to attend a friends birthday party. The room was clean and the owners were friendly, so that's good. There weren't any toiletries in the room, however I didnt ask for any either so this could have been a simple oversight. My big problem with the place was the price, I found...
