I would stay here again just for the excellent view from my room on the 14th floor and the location right in the center of action. It is a faded rose, and really needs a good cleaning and updating. The carpet, the TV's the bedspreads are stuck somewhere in the 80's, yet as I said it's all about the view.... More

We were on the 14th floor, in what they call Loft. Nothing like the pictures they show on internet. Living room was so cramped. Carpets were old and filthy. Windows were smudged and the bathroom off the lobby was disgusting. Pool was so cloudy and room was way too hot to swim in. Only good point...desk people were very nice... More

On behalf of the front desk staff I do thank you for your kind words about the service you received. We are looking into different renovations in the upcoming future and I will pass your concerns to our upper management. Also we will be launching a new website in the next few months with updated pictures as well. More

Reception is about 10' inside the door and as they advise you there is no check-in before 3 pm....so about 2:30, the line-up is blocking the entrance. But there is a very vacant space behind the reception desk ....what were they thinking?? The hallways are HOT with no circulation. Hotel is generally dirty. Elevators dirty. Entries dirty. Entry cards ineffective... More

The room was very nice, king size bed, fridge, in room jacuzzi, very big space. The view was awesome, both the American Falls and the Horseshoe falls from the picture window. Wi-Fi not so good, had to ask for our money back on that. The Applebees that is attached was not so good, and we usually like Applebees. Servers were... More

We had never stayed at a Hotel that overlooked the Falls before and decided to do so this time around. This was the best decision we have ever done cause the suite we stayed in (Floor 17) was worth the stay and the price. The room was very clean, hotel staff were willing to answer any questions you had and... More

The hotel staff were pleasant but it was just an average hotel. We booked the gourmet package and were shuttled to a restaurant that was just okay. The hallways leading to our room were hot and smelled like garbage and were filthy. The rugs were so stained and dirty looking it was disgusting. The room also had dirty carpets. The... More

My family and I stayed for two nights at the Oakes Hotel. We were on the 11th floor and couldn't ask for a better view of the falls.... it was AMAZING! However, that is where the compliments end. The room was disappointing to say the least. As I sit here I am really trying to think of one thing about... More

We booked, for one night on a weekday, the Romance Package and chose the King Premier Fallsview Jacuzzi Suite. Yes, pay a little more to be between floors 9 and 22 (we were on the 19th floor). The view of both falls was incredible. The dining at Remington's was very good (my prime rib was excellent), the chocolate and the... More

This is the second time me and my husband have vacationed in Niagara Falls at the Oakes Hotel. The first time, we had a very beautiful room with the view of the Falls so close, you felt like you could almost touch it. And the room was spectacular and well kept. This time was different. We were on the 8th... More
