Great location

My daughter and I were pleased of the location and the view of the Niagara Falls. The room was clean and straight when we got there. The Front Desk staff was okay. If re-visited The Falls, I will pick The Oakes Hotel again.

Amazing Views at Great Prices

This was an amazing trip. The hotel, while not much to look at from the outside, was beautiful inside. We were upgraded at the time of check in to a king size bed and a Jacuzzi tub (which we REALLY enjoyed). The view was phenomenal. The location was perfect... a short walk to the river and attractions and an even shorter walk to the casino. I can see where a family might need more amenities for kids, but for a couple it was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed out time at the Oakes and would recommend it to others. I think its the best value for the view in the area.

Do EVEYTHING and take advantage of the "adventure pass"... you get a package of attractions at a discount and are able to ride the shuttle for up to TWO days. Unless you like walking...

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!)

View is Everything

The view was outstanding from my corner room and the King bed was great. However the rug had little dirt spots and the shower door did not close porperly but overall ir was very nice. The surprise $20 charge for parking was kind of a nickel dime thing since there was a parking garage next door at $5 day and the $3 (Canadian only) vending machine when the front guest would not change a US $10 with $3 canadian and $7 US was a little tacky. Watch out for the Canadian taxes they are a killer
