“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Gave our niece and her partner a weekend package for Christmas. They went last weekend and had a wonderful time. A really terrific value.

Thanks for making their well deserved mini vacation so special.

The OAKES Hotel is a great facility. Not only is its location prime and its name justified, but the clean condition of the premises and professionalism of staff are a delight to experience . While slightly recessed from the main road, it is highly well located to scrutinize the falls and landscape from a variety of angles, as long as you opt for a fallsview room. Adjacent to the famous Appleby's casual restaurant, it is a skip and a hop from the Casino with its gallery of shops and foodcourt, a short walk from the concentrated entertainment district and the slew of restaurants and pubs that confuse you with their endless offerings. The only small feature missing was the faulty exercise machine but few tourists are seeking that on vacation. Great running path along the falls just behind the Hotel. Would and will return....

Room Tip: choose fallsview side of course, that is why you are there ...

Once again our package deal at the Oakes Hotel was wonderful. Even though the hotel is well-used and could use some new furniture and carpets, our room was clean, beds comfortable, our view was great, our meals at Applebees and Remingtons and our wine tastings were delicious - not to mention our Seneca Casino vouchers - we made $$ on their $$! This was our second visit to the Oakes and we'll be back again for our annual couples trip with our best friends.

Room Tip: We booked early at the lower price level for a 2 night package and asked to stay on the highest floo...

I paid for the top of the line room the Premium King. The view was excellent and the room was good. The food at Remington was great ,best meal I have had at the falls. Overall hotel is tired and in need of a major overhaul. Carpet worn out, marks on the walls, the viewing area on floor 14 old and looked bleak and dirty. I would only go back and stay in a Premium room i would be scared to rent one of the lower category rooms.

Room Tip: choose the premium room

For the price and the view this is a hotel that can't be beat.

This hotel is literally right on the falls. It's at the edge of the horseshoe falls on the Canada side. We stayed on the 10th floor and it offered an incredible view of both falls. it was around $150 US or under a night. We had the king suite with a jacuzzi and an awesome view!

It's easy to walk down the all the falls attractions and lookouts. You just cross the street. There is also an incline that will take you up and down the huge hill for a small fee. Highly recommend. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful on what to do in the area, and know where to help you get discounts.

Now the place is a little sparsely decorated and a bit dated, but again, worth the price. It's a bit cheaper than others in the area. You do have to pay for wifi, and they don't really have enough spots in the parking lot, but its not horrible.

There is an Applebee's attached to the lobby for food, or there are other restaurants/bars down the street. There is a casino a block down too. Definitely walkable

Room Tip: Definitely get a room on at least the 10th floor or higher, or the trees will block your view of the...

Room Tip: the 19th floor is the best!!

I was so excited until we arrived. We were here for our 6th anniversary. We ordered the romance packaging thinking we would get everything it said. FYI February was "ROMANCE PACKAGE MONTH". We arrived and we were missing the wine, flowers and chocolate and that was mostly the reason for ordering this package. When asking the desk person they stated that there was only 1 kind of wine left out of 3 kinds. (It was of course the kind I didn't want) No more chocolates left and they gave us free parking to replace the chocolates... Oh yay so romantic. I was so disappointed I felt like our anniversary was ruined before it started! Never ever coming back! How can they advertise for "ROMANCE PACKAGE MONTH" and not have any supplies to fulfill their promise! Worst hotel experience ever!
