Save your money

Horrible hotel, no fridge, no microwave, rusting ceiling in the bathroom, the shower head is made for people 5'6" or shorter, the heater/AC was temperamental and loud, one bed was soft the other hard as the floor, the tv is out of the dinosaur age, old, blurry, and the channel selection is lacking. The pool was really dirty and cold, even my 6 year old said we should have stayed somewhere else. Parking for $15 is a joke since there is enough parking for less than half the rooms.

Personal disappointment

At fist I thought got a good deal, but unfortunately nobody in your family or your wife or girlfriend will end up appreciating you finding this 'gem'. Probably you will end up feeling terrible yourself for taking that decision. Rooms are dirty, carpet that you don;t want to walk on w/o shoes, even the lamp covers look damaged from partying. AC system is probably from 1980 and in he specific case of my room (terrible 2nd floor annex rooms) there was this repetitive vibration noise that could drive you nuts at night. With all honesty, you will wish you have paid $20 or whatever dollars more somewhere not to experience this.

Great view of Falls

The view of the Falls was lovely. There was a loud knocking sound periodically that I think was related to the plumbing. We also received coupons for local resturants.

Nice hotel, good location, not a lot of parking

The hotel was all around a good hotel with a good view of the falls, clean rooms, and helpful staff. Parking however wasn't the best especially since they charge an extra $15 per day and it is almost impossible to get a spot on the weekend.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Combo packages are offered for some attractions(Ripley's, wax museum, ect.) and can save money. Also, there are lots of coupon catalogs at most attrations that can save money at several different places, worth grabbing if you plan on doing the tourist thing.

FANTASTIC STAY IN NIAGARA FALLS ONTARIO CDA

The Hotel is located incredibly strategically overlooking the Falls. Their name does not lie !! as long as one opts for a fallsview room. Extremely clean, quiet and central !! Walk to everywhere , close to the Casino but not party to the Casino clamor ... so close to Horseshoe Falls, one can dodge from the path overlooking the Falls to the Hotel door. Adjacent to Appleby's , you dont need a coat. Elevators to the upper floors boast glass windows to the top so you can still enjoy the view when inside.... Within minutes of great restaurants like Vinny's, East Side Mario's , Shoeless Joe's, Margueritaville, and the Casino Hotel gallery of indoor shops and food kiosques. Staff is well trained, highly helpful and personable and thoroughly delightful ! Rooms are well and pleasantly appointed with great colours and amenities. The only disappointment was faulty machines in the exercise room but hey, not everyone is an fitness addict. and PS the run along the Falls pathway is a sheer delight. Would I go again. You bet I would, without even inquiring about other accommodation type. Rates on the off season are unparalleled for value !!

The package the Oak Hotel overlooking the Falls with Remington Restaurant was a deal !! The restaurant is one of a kind in decor, ambiance and CUISINEand only a short walk away though the entertainment centre which in itself is a blast !! We would return again and again !!

decent hotel for price.

The staff was a bit rude during check-in. Once I entered my room, there was a distinct smell of urine. The bathroom was not cleaned. Our view of the falls was fantastic. That was about the only thing that was great about our room. Carpet was dirty, wallpaper was pealing off and the hotel needs a general make over. All-in-all, the location and views are great, but would not recommend staying at this hotel.

Not worth the money

Not enough outlets to charge phones and iPads.. Lighting is restricted to plug in lamps which use up the outlets availability. There is a $15 charge to park your car in the lot. Wi Fi is not free. The observation area of the falls is nothing more than a window with a bench in front of it. However the view of the Falls from the room was spectacular, but we already experienced the Falls first hand during the day... Could have saved money across the street at the comfort inn which had free Wi Fi and continental breakfast..
