very good view, rooms were big and comfortable, I was surprised however about a couple of things especially because of the price of the rooms. Price did not include breakfast or even free coffee in the morning, T here was free internet but only outdoor parking and that was at a surcharge! There was no welcome book in the room... More

We located this hotel via google maps to see what hotel was closest to the falls and we were not disappointed with the stunning view of the falls from our hotel room. This hotel is one of the only hotels looking directly down over the horse shoe falls. It was amazing to see the beautiful view especially at night when... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights recently and the hotel is basic. The reception area is a bit tired looking. The room on 2nd floor overlooking carpark was okay with 2 comfortable beds. The air conditioning is very old fashioned and noisy. Was amazed that in this day and age there is no safe in the rooms. We... More

We stayed 1 night, got a very good deal through expedia.com. Our room was on the 6th floor (21 floors total). We asked for a higher level room and were told that for the room category we had they only had rooms on levels 1-7. Would have been $100 more to upgrade to next level room. We did have a... More

You have to unplug the lamps to be able to charge your phones, while the room is so dark even with lamps. This is funny. It's a touristic area, people are using their phone alot and they need to charge it even before they go to bed. Toilet and shower are located in a very tight space. They economized the... More

I read many poor reviews for the Oakes hotel; however, I wanted a view of the falls and was willing to sacrifice the quality of the room for the view. I know I probably would not spend much time in the room. Here is what you need to know. SURPRISE SOMEONE – THE VIEW - I was taking someone who... More

The Oakes Hotel is located close to the Niagara Falls, a very popular touristic destination. The double bed classic room reserved was very comfortable. Contrary to the publicity, the room reserved by internet, didn't overlook the falls... The building did! The price per night varied also. We reserved two rooms, one for friends and one for us. The price varied... More
