AA Royal Motel & Campground, July 13-18, 2017

Rating:  3.0 on a scale of 5

Location: The location of this campground was perfect for sightseeing in Niagara Falls (New York and Ontario). It was on Route 62 (Niagara Falls Boulevard), which will take you through town to Niagara Falls State Park where you can access many of the US attractions. You can also drive (or walk) into Canada at the Rainbow Bridge crossing that is next to the park. There are main roads to the Niagara Falls area, but we found route 62 to have less traffic jams and an easier route.

Lot size: We had a nice pull through lot with full hookups. It was long enough for us to be able to leave our tow dollar hooked up and park our car. All sites have a picnic table and fire ring. There are more back-in sites, but we were fortunate to get a pull through. The park is relatively small but each site is of a decent size. 

Here are some views of the campground. It is basically a loop road with sites on the exterior side of the loop and the pull throughs in the middle of the loop.

Amenities: Free wifi (get the password from the office) and cable TV are provided here. There is a small laundry room in the bath house at the rear of the park. If you are looking for other amenities, this is not the place for you.

Cost: $60.70 per night; $242.80 for 4 night stay. All of the RV parks I researched in the area were very expensive ($90-110) which is the primary reason we decided to stay here. 

Management: Check in was efficient and fast. I had to ring a bell at the office door when we arrived, but it was answered immediately. Making reservations here was also a breeze and I received an email confirmation right away.

General Comments:  I had very low expectations for this place as I knew it was a motel with a campground in the back. 

However, it turned out to be a great home base in Niagara Falls for us. It was exactly what we wanted for our stay here. I would recommend it for those who are looking for the same. We met some congenial neighbors who told us that they were awakened in the wee hours of the morning by other campers, but we heard nothing (our bedroom is at the opposite end of our RV from theirs, and we had our air conditioner running...)
