Great Location

The room's view overlooking the Falls was great, although the decor and furnishings were somewhat jaded and tired. There are no facilities for eating or drinking at the hotel and the reception area can get congested. We were only there for two nights and that was about right.

Great trip to Niagara Falls

The room was great and the view was awesome. We were on the 20th floor, which overlooked both American and Horseshoe Falls. Hotel a short walk from the Horseshoe Falls. Just remember to book a Fallsview room with Jacuzzi suite.

You are a short walk from Applebees, but make sure you have lunch at the Keg Room, across the street, as view is out of this world. Also, the foodcourt at the Casino is great for lunch.

Great views but...

While the bed was comfortable, the furniture near the windows were heavily stained from many occupants who had rest their arms on the fabric. Our room was 1018; the view was spectacular which was what we paid for at $165 a night. One particular front desk gentleman was less than that as I overheard him speak to guests. Our friend's room was awful; bed had to be over 20 years old and showed it. Terrible sleep for them. Ask for the highest floor possible. Anything under 9th you miss out on the New York side falls.

Average Except for the Great Location and Nice VIew

The positives of the Oakes are the great location with a good view of the Horseshoe Falls with quick access to the Table Rock Welcome Centre via the nearby "Incline railway". The view of the falls from our sixth floor room was good with an even better view from the 14th floor viewing area. The onsite Applebee's was convenient for breakfast. The room was clean but a bit outdated to dull as was the rest of the place; the pool room seemed particularly unattractive. Our only real problem was the lack of any convenient way to charge our phones/electronics. Ask for a discount at Applebee's with your room key

The "Incline Railway" with a great view of the falls is just a short walk from the Oakes hotel. Get an all day pass to ride as many times as you want. It takes you quickly to the Niagara Parks Table Rock Visitor Center.

needs to be updated

The staff was great but the hotel needs a renovation the pool was indoors but cold the hot tub was just warm and the sauna was not very hot with the temp turned right up the fitness room had a couple of bikes and that was about it and anyone walking by the hotel could see you. There is no fridge or microwave in the rooms and there is only ice machines on the 2 4 6 8 10 and 12th floors we were on the 12th floor but the machine was broken and looked like it had been that way for some time there is 21 floors and only 6 ice machines the hallway carpet had spots where the pattern was almost worn off from the traffic over the years and the walls had wear marks from the carts hitting it over and over again our room was nice but there where holes in the wall in the bathroom where stuff use to hang but had been moved and we got the king bed with the jetted tub it was nice but they put mirrors on the tap side and the back wall and the other wall is wall paper not a smart choise if u ask me. The view was great but I heard on the lower floors the trees get in the way of the view and the staff were very nice and very helpful . I would rec. this hotel if you are looking for a cheaper hotel close to the falls with a great view if you want the high class feel then this is not the hotel for u.

if you dont wanna drive the entertainment pass that does the maid of the mist and walk behind the falls is great as it gives you 4 attractions plus free bus service for 2 24 hour periods and the bus picks you up right infront of applebees which is right beside the hotel

Terrible experience.

I booked this hotel asking for Fallside, and I ended up getting a second floor room with a view to their back parking lot and dumpsters. Before I even checked in, the couple in front of me was arguing with the incompetent front staff about not receiving a desired room as well. Overall, terrible experience, and would highly recommend people to stay away from this hotel.

Amazing views of the falls

The best thing about this hotel is the views! The staff is nice and kind, the rooms are clean, and the location is great. But the view is the best feature of this hotel. Make sure you get a 'fallsview' room and not a 'fallsside' room. Fallsside rooms are standard rooms in floors 2-8. And falsview rooms are 8 and upper floors.

Excellent!

The location is the best. We got a room with full falls view....my 9 year old son loved it. He had his best birthday ever!, he said. A good restaurant would make it perfect....we are not big funs of Apple Bee's (next door restaurant associated).
