“Great View of the Falls, Great weekend Packages”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

We stayed at The Oaks for a weekend. We purchased the Casino & Dinner package which we were very happy with the value, the dinner was a quality sit down roast beef dinner at Remingtons of Niagara with no hidden coast except for your booze and gratuity. The meal was excellent. The restaurant is over on the Clifton Hill Side. They supply a shuttle service to the restaurant with a van that was small for the 18 people waiting so the driver had to make two trips. The Fallsview room was clean and the beds were comfortable, the hotel is right beside Fallsview Casino and 10 minute walk to see the Falls, 25 minute walk to Clifton Hill. Check out was quick an efficient. Very good value with dining package, looking forward to our next stay.

Beautiful views. Great location. Clean room. I'm on my second day of a two day stay here. The views from the rooms are stunning, but the best thing about this hotel aside from the views is the staff. Whitney at the front desk is genuinely friendly and took care of every need our group had. Erin from the house keeping staff was also very friendly and did a great job keeping my room clean.

Fantastic views of both the falls . We stayed on the 19th floor . Wind direction might affect view of the falls because of the huge misty clouds from bottom of the falls. The view is majestic.
Disappointment : no free wifi, break fast not included, don't expect any room service.

We are from South Africa, my husband & I booked in to celebrate my birthday. It was well worth it, we were on the 19th floor facing the falls, it was breathtaking & so exciting! The room was clean & the bed was very comfortable. We had a wonderful time, thank you!

Room Tip: Ask for Fall facing room, the higher the better

I stayed in one of the fallsview rooms on one of the high levels of the hotel. I had a direct view of the falls from my room which was breathtaking. The room however wasn't overly clean or modern. Some modern bed linen and a good clean would have gone a long way.
The view however more than compensated for this, I will definitely be back!

I have read many reviews about the Oakes Hotel both good & bad. Sure its needs some updating but for what your paying its that bad. Here's the secret if you what really good view of the falls you must request the tower rooms above the 8th floor but of course you will have to pay for the Million dollar view. My wife & I stayed here on a one night package deal and were in room 1617 we had a excellent view of both the falls and the early morning sunrise this was our second time staying here and would definitely stay here again. John T.

Room Tip: Get Tower Room For the View.

We went to the Oakes Hotel recently on a Getaway package that included a night stay, dinner, breakfast, and casino vouchers. It was an amazing deal. The view of the Falls from the room was spectacular and the dinner we had at Remington's steakhouse was fabulous.
But what made the trip was the hospitality we received from the time we got there to the time we left. The hotel manager Michael was so friendly and welcoming. Every time we saw him over the 2 days he always went out of his way to chat with us and made sure we were having a great time. And he always remembered our name. And we weren't the only ones. He treated all his guests that way. We always saw him talking and laughing with others in the lobby. I had never taken the time to ever go onto a website and talk about my experience somewhere. But the experience I had at the oakes hotel has to be shared. We will definitely go back.
Thank you,
Albert
