Nice place

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.

excellent location

The hotel was excellent, location to the falls, restaraunts, attractions, was minutes away. they are currently fixing a tram systwem behind the hotel that will go directly down to the falls, so that you can reach them in minutes with little walking. There is a fantastic walkway behind the hotel that connects you to the casino as well as Murray street, with many views of the falls with stops along the way to view the falls from different locations. no matter what you like to do it can be done right there. we must have walked about 20 miles in 3 days and enjoyed every moment.

THE place to stay at Niagara Falls

I always say I don't want to spend my days away from home and work inside a hotel. So, why should I pay for it? At The Oakes, I was walking distance from the Falls, restaurants, casinos and everything I wanted. I went to sleep with the sound of the crushing falls and a view that could have easily cost twice what I paid. BTW, one can take great pictures of Niagara Falls from the room's window on the Falls side of the hotel. Next time I'm in the NF Ontario, I won't even look at other places.
