I had read the other reviews so I was aware of the extra $15 for one night parking but the cable was less than basic. If it's rainy or you're bring the family better bring your own entertainment. They have about 10 cable channels with expensive
movie options. At first you think...this is great look at all great first run movies we can choose from until you look at the cost...$16.99 a movie and it's live. It's not DVR, you change the channel you pay to restart the movie!
Overall great view that I expected, big room but the staff is average at best. I'll probably try another hotel next time before I'd come back to this one to see how they campair.
We were very happy at the Oakes Hotel. The reception staff were very friendly and professional. The room was very clean and comfortable. And the view! It was everything we were hoping for. We have already recommended it to our friends.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
The hotel offered a dining package for dinner at the Remington Restaurant, including shuttle service. Very good food for a reasonable price. And the wine tasting coupons made for a very nice trip the next day!
At check in we were required to sign a non-smoking agreement with the threat of a $250.00 fine if they determined we smoked in the room. We had requested a non-smoking room, we do not smoke. The room smelled like there was cigarettes burning in
it. When I went to the front desk, they told me that the only other room available was on a lower floor, we barely could see the falls from our room, my fault-fall side of the building does not mean falls view. The front desk person went on to lecture me about how they would need to deodorize the room if we smoked in it (non-smokers!) While her workmate rolled her eyes at me.
Location was wonderful overlooking the falls. We could see the fireworks from our window. Room & bath were nicely decorated and clean. Front desk staff was very courteous & helpful. There was an extra daily charge for parking.
Barely a 2 star hotel but it was clean but old, hallways old old carpet wall paper barely hanging on but when we opened the door and saw are view we decided to live with the old hallways, are room was 1129 u could see both falls from r room fairly
well but the higher u r the better the view, when I booked they guaranteed floors 10 thru 12 We got on the 11 th floor and were satisfied with room beds were ok pillows average small bathroom with sink outside of bathroom biggest complaint no coffee in lobby have to walk to Starbucks in embassy suites across st
