NICE VIEW NOT SO GREAT HOTEL

The hotel is close to the falls, and its has a great view unfortunately the hotel needs some TLC and was lacking in amenities. The Wifi service was really bad in our room and the TV offers only just a couple of basic channels. We didn't have a safe or a fridge in our room even after we stayed at their upgraded room. To park on the hotel grounds is $20.00 extra per day and you can't hardly find any parking even though it was the low season.

birthday vacation

The view from the room was amazing. Hotel and staff were ok. The staff was not friendly just pure business. But I would still stay there again just for the view. Had a great time with the family which was the most important thing. The room as clean and comfortable. I would recommend the staff to smile and some more amenities to be available. But again....I had a great time with the family and luckily there were fireworks we got to enjoy.

Best View of the Falls

This is the absolute truth and the location could not be better. The hotel staff was friendly and the room was fantastic. There is not a resturant in this hotel, but there are many places to dine in the imediate area, The view and price of the stay make this one of the best places to stay on the Canadian Falls of Niagra.

Great

Had room overlooking falls. It was beautiful. We had a jacuzzi tub room, but did not realize that it did not come with a shower. The only downside wAs that you could hear others taking a shower and flushing the toilet all night long. Staff was very friendly and helpful. 14th floor observation gave a beautiful view of falls

Not what you are hoping for...

Unfortunately was not impressed by the Oakes. Got there and the room was laid out horribly. Then checked the bedding and found what I would expect at a Motel 6. Rough plastic like comforter if that's what you would call it and the crunchiest sheets you could imagine. Then there was the morning......No hot water for our showers. Called front desk and the stated that the entire hotel was out of commission for at least an hour. I don't exactly want to spend my morning in beautiful Niagara Falls waiting on hot water. Needless to say I do not recommend this establishment and would not ever return. Stay at the Sheraton. Much nicer and well worth it.

The Best Hotel Stay

The view was fantastic as advertised and staff cordial and professional. We took advantage of the hotel's special discounts with local restaurants and wineries. One of the top hotels we have stayed at.
