Great location

My first impression of the oaks hotel was really great. There were lots of activity going on which means many people were enjoying their time there. The hotel was really clean and well taken care of. The rooms were very nice. The location was terrific, you could walk to everything including the casino and many great restaurants. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone.

Hotel gave us a $10 off coupon for a meal which we missed because we did not see it in our room key packet. Look for it.

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.

Located very convenient

The Oakes was a nice hotel, but nothing special for the money when the $15/night parking was added to the invoice. Staying "falls side", but only on the 3rd Floor meant I had a a very limited view of the falls. The Hotel was convenient to the inclined railway which takes travelers to the Visitor Center and the rim of the falls.

The inclined railway is a $2 "short-cut" to the rim of the falls. The Journey Behind the falls is worth every penny.

A more than pleasant experience!

I loved the hotel. The location was perfect! Walking distance to the Falls and to the attractions. The view from the room was astounding. Both falls (Canada and US) could be seen from our room. The hotel employees were very kind. We left our luggage in a room and were able to do sightseeing before check in time. I was surprised of how modern, comfortable and centric the hotel is for the price paid. I will definetly recommend it to friends and family. It has been one of the best hotels I have stayed in.
