Perfect Stay

You can not get a better view of the Falls than from a Falls View Room at the Oakes hotel. Yes, the hotel has basic amenities, no bar, but when you look out of your window and see Niagara, it really doesn't matter. The staff were friendly, our room was 2 story and suited all our needs. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Family Trip

The staff was friendly and inviting, they had a machine malfunction but handling of the situation was well. The room was a bit smaller then expected but it did the job. It was clean but did not like the layout of the sink in the middle of the entrance and no closet. The price I found was great compared to all the other hotels and just got more expensive after. Really like the observation floor beautiful view over the falls.

Outstanding Falls View

This by far was the best Fall view room in all of Niagara. What a spectacular view and experience for my wife's first visit to the falls. The staff was outstanding and the room was very, very nice and clean and close to everything. The falls elevator is right out front so getting to the direct falls is easy

2nd honeymoon

The hotel location was close to the Falls & walking distance to lots of restaurants & shops. We were disappointed in our room which was located down long hallways & on the 2nd floor. The back exterior of the part of the hotel was crumbling & old. There was a moldy smell too. The staff at the front desk were not very informative unless asked a question. We booked our room 2 1/2 months in advance & requested a room with a view of the Falls. We were 2nd floor & a parking lot view! Very disappointing for our one & only time there & in Canada!

Gouged at Niagara

This hotel is clearly in it for the money. The lobby is bare-bones, and the rooms, even more so. The room was billed as fall-side, but the only view was of the parking lot. When we called down to the lobby to ask for extra pillows, we were told they were sold out, and had no extra pillows. This room was expensive, and I felt it was not even close to being worth what we paid for it.

Family catch up

Rooms were very basic and not very clean. Main toilets in the foyer were very unclean. Asked for a room overlooking the falls as this was stated in the syllabus.... Hotel does not overlook the falls at all. Complaints to staff were disregarded. Definitely would avoid this hotel in the future.

First trip to Canada.

I had a great view from my hotel! Very comfortable. However, had to pay extra for WIFi which was spotty and parking is an extra $20 a day. Probably could have done with out the view for wifi and parking elsewhere.
