Would stay here again!

The best views of the falls. The pool and hot tub were average. There are a number of places to eat just outside the front door. Located next to casino and shopping. Hotel sits just behind the lift to go up and down the hill, so you dont have to walk (this is a big plus). Rooms were clean, and staff was very nice.

convenient location

The location was fantastic; although, the rooms were not very nice. The pillows were as thin as paper and we needed to ask for more The coffee maker was broken and the room overall was in need of an upgrading.

christmas night stay

seemed to be understaffed, and could be since it was Christmas. The room was not in the main tower, hard to believe its rated as a 4 star???? Just not the best hotel stay for sure, adequate at best. maybe being in building would have been ok, requested adjoining rooms..not available..will look else where next time for sure. The pool was nice, but not spotless.

The Falls

The location is outstanding! Right next to the Falls. Even the non-view rooms can get a good view from the overlook balconies. Very good quality place. and they did not charge the outragious $20 parking fee that the other local hotels add to your bill.

good view of falls, not much else

The room needed some updating. The carpeting was in need of a major cleaning. Both of the chairs in the room showed wear on the arms and one of the chairs had a large tear in it. There wasn't any information in the room regarding the hotel or surrounding area.

Great location, view and price

The hotel was fantastic. The staff was very friendly. Check-ins are at 3:00pm, but we arrived earlier, the lady in the front desk gave us the room right away and it help cause we had time to do some rides at the niagara falls. The rooms were very clean, the view from our room was perfect we couldn't ask for more. The one thing we didn't like at all was the pool area, it wasn't as clean as we thought. I will recommend this hotel to anyone.

I would recommend to eat at the restaurants that are on the niagara parkway instead of the ones that are right around the hotel cause they are much better and cheaper...

I was not thrilled

The staff gave misinformation. Housekeeping never got to my room befor 4:00. They are too busy cleaning the "check-outs". After a full day of sightseeing that was not pleasant. Vieww of the falls was limited. You have to pay more to go over the 8th floor to see the falls. Available tours from the tour desk were limited. I did better at the Visitors Center, elsewhere.

Hotel is close to the IMAX and the Skylon Tower. If you have a car, it is easy to get around from this location.

Great View if above the 5th floor

The view from my room was spectacular I was on the 7th floor anything below that is not worth your while. However there are viewing areas on higher floors where you can see the falls, both sides, and the fireworks and lights. The staff was ok do not go before check in time because you will have to wait but they do have a concierge who will hold your bags at no fee. The best place for breakfast is Perkins, it's two streets over from the front of the hotel. There is an Applebees downstairs and casinos on both sides of the street. We had a wonderful time we did Maid of the mist, journey behind the falls, white water rapids and a 3D movie of the creation of the falls. I suggest that you buy the package at the foot of the hill which gives you 4 sites and 2 all day passes on the people mover bus. All in all we had a great trip and we would stay at the Oakes again.
