We have stayed here several times now....this time we decided to book 2 adjoining rooms and travel with my 2 adult daughters and their boyfriends...party of 6 in all. What a fantastic time we had at the falls! Dinner at Remington's excellent as usual. Breakfast at Applebees great! A little disappointed with the service we received this time at the... More

We stayed here for one night whilst visiting the falls. Having paid extra for a room with a falls view we were not disappointed. The room was immaculate and very spacious, even better than the photos on their website with an amazing view - we were on the 13th floor. My only complaint was that the shower sounded like it...

We divided our time between two hotels in our most recent visit to Niagara Falls. Over the weekend, when prices are INSANE, we stayed at the Oakes Hotel Overlooking the Falls. And BOY does it overlook the falls! The hotel claims to be the closest hotel to the stunning Canadian falls, and I believe this to be a well-founded claim.... More

Watch carefully which rooms you are assigned-out courtyard room faced an old parking lot-very disappointed with room quality and cleanliness for price. Better rooms and hotels for just slightly more near by that would have made it a better getaway experience.

Let me just say, if you're going to spend over $300 bucks a night to stay at a hotel for the week-end in Niagra Falls, DON'T STAY AT THIS ONE, because it's totally not worth it! First of all, I'm pretty sure the rooms have not been re-decorated since the 70's. The linen didn't seem overly fresh to me. The... More

When location and deal are good it starts off well. Rooms are variable as they are a bit tired. Staff are efficient. Will use this hotel again

My husband and i stayed at The Oakes for 3 nights at the beginning of September 2011. Stayed in room 1717 A King Fallsview Suite. What a great room with an amazing view from all three sides. The double Jacuzzi bath was great and the Swan towels were sweet.. Ice makers of 4 floors which is handy but they are... More

Upper rooms gave a terrific view of both the Canadian and American Falls. Room was large, clean, bed was comfortable, bathroom was fine. However, this hotel has no cable or satellite TV. Limited channels. And old box TVs, not flat screens. Definite upgrade needed. Also, no room service. Attached Applebees and other nearby restaurants deliver. Overall good price/good value. Front...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the 11th floor overlooking the falls. If you don't want to pay more for the upper floors, spend time in the cozy chairs on the 14th floor which features an observation area. An older property, it didn't have microwave or refrig in room. Beds were comfortable, and room was clean. Front desk staff was... More
