I hope to visit Tornonto next August, can anyone recommend a hotel in a good central location that won't cost a fortune. 
Also, how far is Toronto from Niagara Falls?  Is it visitable in a day?

The Delta Chelsea is good and moderately priced tho' very large (well over 1000 rooms) and always busy.

The Marriott Courtyard (Marriott's moderate brand) offers good deals from time to time and is well run.

Cambridge Suites offers very large rooms at a reasonable price.

The Victoria
, on Yonge Street, has a European flavour and a funky little personality.

My brother stays at the Quality Hotel Midtown in a good location on Bloor Street by the University of Toronto. Very good for the money and nice neighbourhood.

Finally, the Bond Place Hotel is a good, plain budget choice. All of these places are well run and near the Toronto subway (underground) which is clean, efficient and runs until 2 a.m.

Niagara Falls is 80 miles away and easily reachable as a day trip by bus. Popular both for the obvious sight of the Falls and for its first rate and very large Casino. You can see one of the wonders of the world and lose your shirt all on the same day. The bus terminal is at Bay St. and Dundas St. in the city center. Service is at least hourly and take 90 minutes or so depending on how many stops, if any, the bus makes. First buses out leave about 6:30 a.m. Last one back is about 11:30 p.m.

Niagara Falls is a one-day trip from Toronto, but I want to give you a heads-up about the traffic.

The month of August is the summer season, with many many Torontonians heading out of town, in all directions, for the weekend. The traffic on the QEW highway to Niagara Falls can be especially terrible on weekends, often in both directions, as people flock to their weekend-getaways. So, if you plan a daytrip, I recommend that you try and avoid weekends. Also, keep in mind that Aug 3-6, 2012 is the Civic holiday weekend in Canada, so that traffic will also be bad on the Thursday (as people leave the City early) and Monday (given the day off, people will return to the City later than usual).

Traffic anything I've driven from Toronto to Niagara Falls has been pretty smooth, it helps if you can start your trip after rush hour though (5pm)
