We paid extra for a Fallsview room and it was worth the extra money. We had a great view of both the American Falls and the Canadian Falls from our 9th floor room. The room was confortable with two queen size beds and adeguate floor space. The TV was quite dated-something out of the 1980's, with rather limited channel selection.... More

We found this hotels website to be thousands of times nicer than the actual facilities. The bedding in our room was stained and the toilet did not flush. The air conditioner in our room was noisy and did not blow cool air. Fitness room- what fitness room? One old bike from my grandmothers garage and no treadmill or weights. The... More

This was a wedding anniversay getaway. Booked the Fallsview king suite. The view was beautiful, however the room itself was a bit small for the price paid. There was a fridge in the room, but it was locked. Although the room was no-smoking, it still smelled like either someone smoked in the room before I checked in or it used... More

The view as promised was great - 3 rooms had been booked for our family group, we were placed on different floors not so great. Checkin was easy, information re: internet (password has to be renewed daily) & parking (there are several parking areas) not clear. Front desk personnel appeared disinterested in acknowledging clients as they enter the lobby area.... More

The hotel was very nice and the staff was extremely professional. The view of the Falls from our room was spectacular. We suggest you take advantage of the special offer the hotel provides that includes dinner, breakfast, and wine tastings at wineries near Niagara on the Lake. The drive to Niagara on the Lake is only about 30 minutes and... More

When we arrived our room was not ready. Had a half hr wait to get into our room. The room itself was great. We had a mini suite that was two floors. The view was fantastic at either the observation area in front of our room or our bedroom window that was a level lower. My main complaints are the... More

I wanted it all – one night in a decent hotel that was centrally located with a view of Niagara Falls that didn’t blow the budget. The Oakes Hotel fit the bill to a T. The room was a good size, it was clean and had a great view with windows all the way to the floor and enough space... More

The "observation deck" were chairs pulled up to the windows in the hallway, the "exercise room" had no real equipment, the pool water was cloudy, whirlpool tub water frothy, and the entire hotel was generally dirty. There were cobwebs in our room, the rooms dust on the dressers, the place just isn't clean.

Great views. However, I am extremely dismayed that Canadian Affair rate this hotel as 5 star, as it isn't. There is no bar or restaurant and whilst the rooms were decent enough, clean and tidy they do not have the level of luxury you would expect.

We have just returned from this hotel today and loved our stay! We went for our 12th anniversary and will go back again. We stayed on floor 20 and had a corner room in room 2017 and you couldn't ask for a better view. Windows all around..it was fantastic. Check in was a breeze and we were in our room... More
