Oakes Hotel Overlooking The Falls

Incredible view! Staff was great but room was a disaster. There were burn holes in the bed spreads & carpet, towels were dirty. 19" tv with 12 channels. Pool & hot-tub were nice. Parking was $15. All other hotels within walking distance of this hotel offer $5 a night parking.

Journey Behind the Falls - Very close to hotel but is kind of expensive for what you get to see. Tunnel in back of falls allows you to see 2 port hole views behind the falls and one amazing view next to the falls.

Great location

Fabulous location...we stayed on the 9th floor in the 'new' tower. Couldn't have been nicer view, staff was very pleasant and the price was great. Would tell anyone who was going to Niagara to stay here. (And we hope to get back again, too!)

Diamond in the Rough

While not flashy in style or in appearance, this hotel is a good value for the dollar. I have stayed there twice now, and while the first time was actually a better experience than the second, I still had a wonderful stay. The staff is always kind and courteous and helpful. The rooms can show some age, but are clean and nicely presented. It isnt flashy as I have stated, so if that is what you are looking for, you may want to go someplace else, but if you are looking for a positive experience while getting exceptional value, book a room here.

Good Fall views, but not soo good hotel...

We stayed @ oakes for 2 nights in Feb, 2012. We had booked a Falls view room.. check in process was easy eventhough the front desk staff was not very helpful. The views of falls from our room was really amazing.. The room itself was very average for the price we paid..Our coffee maker in the room was not working and we called front desk, they did bring another one a few mins later, but it had a dead bug and dust in the coffee pot. Very small bathroom. Hotel is close to the falls, but a little far from all other major attractions.Overall, i wasnt satisfied by the hotel, and wouldn't stay there again if i go to Niagara Falls again.

It could be better

The room with full view of the falls is not really full. There were no clean towels on the swimming pool. Parking is expensive. $15 per night for on-street parking.

Great location and great view!

Could not ask for a better location. We had a fallsview room and it was better than we thought it was going to be. We didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel itself because we wanted to walk around the falls. The beds were a little stiff and uncomfortable which was a bummer. Otherwise it was spectacular.

T.G.I. Fridays is right across the street, it literally costs an arm and leg for anything, be careful with any local restaurant, very very pricey.

Great View-Great Prices--blah rooms

If you want a falls view room at a great price then this is for you! However, the rooms are not that great...think Motel 6 with a fallsview!

The view makes it worth it

We were up high enough to see both falls perfectly. The room offered very little, but it was clean.
