Small motels enjoying tourism boom
From the Niagara Falls Review:
It’s not just the traditional tourism powerhouses in Niagara Falls that are experiencing a banner summer season.
The smaller mom and pop motels along Lundy’s Lane are also reaping the benefits of a strong U.S. dollar and a weaker Canadian loonie.
“This year we’re seeing at least a 15 to 20 per cent increase in business,” said Max Patel, general manager of the Westlodge Inn & Suites.
“I think it’s the dollar. Canadians are staying on this side because of the price.”
