Oakes Hotel Overlooking the Falls
Ranked #36 of 128 Hotels in Niagara Falls
Reviewed November 11, 2012

My husband, son and I went at the Oakes for the weekend, check in time was 4pm but we got there a little later due to the traffic from Toronto. Arrived: check in was fast, front desk service was ok... went to the room with my little infant, my husband was trying to turn on the heat but it wasnt working. I turned on the lights and they kept flicking off and on as if we were in Paranormal activity.
called for service they came fix the lights and heat. We carried our own sheets and socks.

The bigger factor of it all is check out time was 11am on sunday Morning my husband just stepped outside to take our luggage down to the car, return and found the card wasnt working and it was wayyy before 11am. We were like what the Heck!!! what type of services is this... we didnt bother to make a fuss out of it at the front desk because we had our little infant...

other than the above mention we enjoyed the view of the falls..

This was the best package deal on a trip to Niagara Falls we've ever had! The room & view was fantastic! We were tempted to not leave the room at all with it's huge Jaccuzzi tub, floor to ceiling windows and table and comfy chairs overlooking a killer view of the falls, but the need for food got the better of us. The meal vouchers were an added bonus, though breakfast at Applebee's could use some REAL orange juice instead of watered down "Tang". Dinner at Remmington's was awsome! The prime rib was a beautiful cut of melt-in-your-mouth beef and the servers were top-notch. This restaurant really seems to apprieciate your patronage, hotel voucher or not. We look forward to staying at the Oakes Hotel in the future and hope they keep offering these great deals and would definitly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We got a GREAT deal on a up-grade from a queen room to a king suite with a jaccuzi overlooking the f...

This hotel is my get-away preference. Be sure to book a room that faces the falls- The windows in those rooms are floor to ceiling. You can see both Canadian & U.S. falls up close and almost hear the thunder. The rates are far better than any hotel overlooking the falls. Rooms are spacious, have coffee machine, and wide flat-screen t.v. The casino is a 4 minute walk away. Parking is outdoors and in their private, secured area. There is a great upper walkway outside that overlooks the falls. friendlystaff and breakfast is right next door at Applebees.

Room Tip: Get one facing the falls--they are lit up at night. Turn your comfychair around to watch the falls f...

Booked this room 3 days before the trip. Had a GREAT deal on a king suite with jaccuzi overlooking the falls. WOW WOW WOW, we ended up with a wrap around corner suite with windows on 2 sides of the room on the 13th floor. The view was AMAZING !!! A couple of years ago I stayed at the Marriot just a block away and it doesn't compare to this. The angle is PERFECT for the falls. Yes the carpets would need a change in the room but it was clean, very clean. Front desk were very fast et friendly. T.V. has only 10 channels.... But who cares with this view of the falls. Elevators were fast, yes parking is 15$/night but you have in/out privilege ( you do not get that from other hotel parking ) Hotel is near everything. Just do NOT go to Appelbee's for breakfast OMG you get 3 eggs, 2 slices of bacon a few potatoes and ONE toast. How can you eat 3 eggs with ONE toast ?? and it was way to much $$ for it.

Next time I am in Niagara falls, I will be at the Oakes hotel for sure !

We enjoyed our stay. The room was nice and we really did find this view to be the best of all the other hotels we've stayed at along that strip. It's very close to the casino. The whirlpool tub is also nicer than the rest due to how deep it is and the different shape. The carpeting in the hallways needs to be redone, but found everything else to be in good shape. We didn't turn on the tv or use wifi. We bought the breakfast add on and enjoyed the meal. We liked the elevators with windows to the outside. We'd stay again for sure.

Room Tip: We were room 1017 and found it to have a lot of windows as it was a corner room. Great views and qui...

Nice hotel. Had to get codes each night for wifi. Parking 15$ per night stay. Rooms spacious and we had view if falls. Although partial I still looked out each morning at them. Hotel is bit old and could do with a revamp. Worth it for the price u pay.would probably try a different hotel if I visit falls again.

Room was nice with view overlooking the falls....tv had only a few channels-fewest tv channels I have seen in many years in a hotel room......the internet reception was spotty and eventually kicked me off......there were not enough power outlets to accommodate my computer....overall it was an OK stay but there are better places. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable...I would probably source another spot next time we travel to the falls and we do so often. The Applebees (attached to hotel and provides their breakfast if you opt for the breakfast package) offered good food, great service and reasonable prices. Be careful not to go to the Friday's located right beside the Oakes for any meals....their prices are extremely high and what I consider "tourist gouging" ....prices do not compare at all with Friday's restaurants in the USA.....how about 16 bucks for a hamburg and 37 bucks for a steak.....I got caught there by mistake....stay away to avoid getting ripped off.
