Scene

Inviting mid-range chain with a central location

The attractive lobby is cozy and eclectic for a mid-range chain

While the hotel entrance looks unassuming from the street outside, the lobby is attractive and welcoming, with a small, comfortable seating area, tiled floors, and a large wooden front desk. A fountain and plenty of plants add a sense of calm that contrasts with the busy street outside. There's also a small souvenir area next to a public computer and printer. Elevators are right in the lobby and hallways lead to the indoor courtyard, guest laundry facilities, and the fitness center. The hotel’s restaurant, Doc Magilligan's Irish Pub, has a entrance from the lobby and a second, separate outdoor entrance.

Location

Not attractive, but very convenient

Map of BEST WESTERN PLUS Cairn Croft Hotel

The Best Western Plus Cairn Croft Hotel is located on a busy highway in the Lundy's Lane tourist district between a McDonalds and a paint shop, and it's a short walk from a variety of restaurants and shops. While the street has a lot of traffic and isn’t particularly attractive, there are a number of dining and entertainment options, and guests are around a 10-minute drive from Niagara Falls. Other nearby attractions include outlet shopping, museums, golfing, and casinos.

Rooms

Clean and generic, with mini-fridges and coffeemakers

The spacious Standard Queen is comfortable and clean, with neutral decor

Those familiar with the brand’s style won’t be surprised—rooms at the Best Western Plus are spacious, simple, and clean, and are decorated in neutral tones. Standard Rooms have a good amount of space and include coffeemakers and free Wi-Fi. Suites are also available for those who prefer more space and amenities, and offer options such as pull-out couches, fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, refrigerators, microwaves, wet bars, and separate living areas. Views are mostly of the highway and nearby buildings, or of the large parking lot on the property.

Features

The indoor courtyard with a heated pool is the highlight here.

Doc Magilligan's Irish Pub serves comfort three times a day

The main feature here is the indoor courtyard, which has lush landscaping and a heated, rectangular indoor pool. The two hot tubs are welcome in chillier weather, as the courtyard can get cool thanks to poor insulation from glass skylights and windows. The poolside bar has a lax dress code, so guests can get served cocktails in their swimsuits. The kids' play area next to the pool has a slide and arcade games.

The fitness center has big windows, a few cardio machines (including one newer treadmill with an individual TV), a strength-training machine, and free weights. There's also a business center and laundry facilities. The restaurant, Doc Magilligan's Irish Pub, serves up comfort food for all three meals, but unfortunately, breakfast is not included in room rates. The parking area is large and wraps around the hotel, but there is a daily fee for parking. The hotel is located close to a number of shops and restaurants; sundry items are also available for purchase at the front desk.
