My wife and I a package which included one night stay at The Oakes, dinner at Remington's Steak restaurant, breakfast at Applebee's (attached to the hotel) and some other smaller attractions. The room was on the 6th.fllor, was clean and had a great view of the Falls.
We had a great weekend, dinner at Remington's was excellent and also included a shuttle service so you didn't have to drive.
We highly recommend the hotel and this package.

Once again my wife and I had a great stay at the Oakes. We were on the 12th floor and you couldn't ask for a better view of both falls. The deal that is offered is one of the best, the meal at Remingtions Steak house is great, service wonderful.

Room Tip: Try to get a room above the 9th floor, that way you are over the tree line and have the best view of...

My husband and I spent two nights in Niagara Falls, Ontario, for his birthday in February. We stayed at the Oakes Hotel in a Fallsview room on the 11th floor. I must say that the view was breathtaking. It was very cold at this time and there was ice all over both the Horseshoe and American Falls, which were both in view from our room.
The room was very nice with two Queen beds and floor to ceiling windows for the ultimate view. The bathroom was great with a jacuzzi tub and large vanity and mirror. The only thing I would have liked extra in the room would be a bar fridge.
The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful, with tips on the attractions and where to dine. Had a great deal at Remingtons Steakhouse up on the hill and Applebees right in the hotel.
We both enjoyed our getaway and would definately stay at the Oakes again.

Absolutely nothing bad to say about this hotel. Very reasonable rate. (we arrived Feb 11/13). Great location. Within walking distance to all that the "Falls" has to offer. Very friendly staff. Room very clean and comfortable. Having a quick breakfast at Applebees (next door) was
good.

Got a Travelzoo voucher for The Oakes, which I've always wanted to stay at. It was fantastic. Right from a smooth, and courteous check in, the view, nothing could beat this! One of the best deals in Niagara Falls and central to everything. Can't wait to return. It was in early March so there was still ice on the river and of course the roaring falls - simply breathtaking. We all loved our stay and can't as I say wait till there is another offer. The Oakes as well has a great deal all the time. Check it out - you won't be sorry!

We were lured to give the Oakes hotel a shot by a travelzoo offer not knowing what to expect. The exterior of the hotel needs work, but the location is pretty good. We were assigned a two queen fallsview room on the 8th floor even though I had booked a king, they said that a king room required an upgrade fee of $50..not mentioned at all when I booked the room. The hotel has free wifi, but it was so slow that it was pretty much unusable which required me to tethered my cell phone to check my email. The view of the falls was pretty good considering we were only on the 8th floor, but the room itself was extremely dated. The TV was an old 27" CRT that had such a bad signal it was hard to make the channels out over the snowy distortions. The carpet, furniture, and bedding were all something you would expect out of a holiday inn from 1980. Kind of a mixed bag really, if you want a good view of the falls and find a good deal then this might be the hotel for you. A romantic weekend getaway, this is not.

We stayed on the 11th floor, view was just breathtaking. Really hit the spot, the room itself was ok, big bed, tv, coffee machine, bathroom was fine, the room itself was maybe showing a bit of age as with the corridors leading to the rooms, saying that you don't go to a hotel with a view like this to shut the curtains.. Staff were friendly and helpfull, Applebee's is a must just next door, great diner, huge portions and great staff
