Where to stay in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Niagara-on-the-Lake abounds with accommodations that can be more affordable than those just a few minutes south in the city of Niagara Falls. The town's grid-like streets offer an array of choices, with Mary Street, Mississauga Street, and Queen Street among the most popular.
