Awesome views

We had the most beautiful views of the falls, it is exactly how it looks in the pictures. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The housekeeping was excellent. The bed was very comfortable. It was within walking distance to everything. The Spa and pool were relaxing and kept very clean. The gym did need updating and more equipment in it. It would have been handy if there was a fridge in the room, but all in all we loved the hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel.

My cousin Vinni's pasta was not fresh pasta as advertised on there menu it was packet pasta, and not worth the money. We had really fantastic pizza and pasta at Rappi's. To save money on Maid of the mist, Journey behind the falls and lots more attractions , get an Adventure pass, it is well worth the money.

Great View and packages

A planned trip and purpose would make you enjoy your trip. We went there for the view, jacuzzi and the romance package. Veronica and Nicole were great. Call them by name and they'll be able to help. We didn't need the big flat screen, the ref and the other luxuries. Just the good price for a suite with jacuzzi, coffee maker and good food. Great staff.

needed a break

Hotel had no hot water, chamber person called for maintenance and when he came he was demeaning to her. He said there is hot water when clearly there wasn't, and there was no hot water in Jacuzzi. The mattress was awful both of us woke up with sore backs and found it hard to sleep all night. Furniture in room was torn in both chairs. We have stayed prior to this and had the same room with no complaints. They say they have a lounge on 14th floor when all it is, is a bench with windows to look out.

Second stay

The Oakes has some very nice rooms with phenomenal views of the Horseshoe Falls. The rooms are large enough and are good condition. The televisions could certainly be updated as well as the filters to remove the annoying static every time the lights flash on the roof. Otherwise you can't beat the views and value.

We found the Mama Mia restaurant, located in Bluffton Hills area, not the food court in the casino, to have excellent food for the most reasonable prices. Try the tiramisu for dessert...AWESOME!
