Lock Seven
just what we expected, great ship viewing! Room was a nice size, comfortable beds, updated bath. Would like to go back in warmer weather to enjoy the balcony and back yard picnic tables. Quick walk to a few good restaurants.

Where the steamships climb the mountain....
My family has been coming to the Inn at Lock 7 since the 1960's. This is a niche experience for boat lovers; a clean, modest hotel whose 25 rooms all directly overlook one of the world's engineering marvels, the Welland Canal, allowing guests to watch up-close, whilst relaxing on their private balcony, as huge cargo ships from the Great Lakes and beyond are raised and lowered in the namesake lock. The rooms are simple, clean and comfortable, with recently remodeled showers, flat screen tvs, free wifi, and refrigerators. Continental breakfast is served daily in the cozy breakfast room, adorned with years of ship photography and other nautical memorabilia. The Inn is minutes away from the best wine country in Canada, and many other attractions. A rare gem.

Lock 7 Motel
The location was the best thing about the room. From the balcony, we were able to view the barges travel Lock 7. The bed was not comfortable and I could not get a good nights rest. The breakfast was awful. It did not start until 7:30am. It consisted of cereal and toast and coffee.It was not worth the cost of $ 145.00.
