We stayed for 2 nights at the Oaks. The best thing about it is that it is only a short walk from everything. We had a studio apartment which was small but adequate. There was once a washing machine in the bathroom but for some reason it has been removed.
Two things caused me to give the hotel an average rating. The first is that the onsite bar and tavern is very noisy, as is the night club located next door. Also, groups of people from both establishments often hang around outside the hotel smoking. It can be a little intimidating to enter or leave the hotel late at night when some of the groups are being particularly rowdy.
The second thing is that the buffet breakfast is awful. It consists of little more than overcooked bacon, eggs floating in water, cold scrambled eggs, a few other sides, a few box cereals and some tiny pastries. There is a pancake machine where you can make your own (why can't the hotel make them) but it was out of order. We only ate there once and skipped breakfast the second day.
If you do stay at the Oaks, make sure you have a room high up as the traffic noise and noise from the bars is very evident on the lower floors.
