Pretty Good!

Unfortunately there is a fee to park and there is no bar/restaurant located in the hotel. But the view was great and the staff helpful!

save time and money

This hotel is not overlooking the falls as they advertise unless you upgrade to their premium rooms. So add another 100 dollars per night. Not worth it. No free breakfast. No free parking. Pool is small. Their terrace consists of just a few windows. Overall not worth your time. Not worth your money.

A Wonderful Surprise

We were extremely happy with this hotel. The view was incredible (primarily because we were lucky enough to get a room on the 20th floor) and the location could not have been better. We were a 1-minute walk from the Incline Railway (which took you directly to the Table Rock Welcome Centre at the Falls) and right next to a WEGO bus stop. The price was excellent for a room with a direct view of the falls and its own jacuzzi bathtub (which was also amazing--the jets worked great). If we return to the Falls we will definitely be staying at this hotel again. We were also there for two of the summer fireworks shows and watched both directly from our hotel room. The only negatives were that the hotel did not offer room service or have an in-house bar or restaurant. The internet was also spotty. But, if you're truly at Niagara Falls to see the falls, this is the hotel for you.

They charged parking fees in. Addition to the normal hotel. Overall, it was not worth the money

Fantastic Hotel!

My girlfriend and I shared a room with another couple and had a wonderful time. Our view from the 7th floor was perfect. We were within walking distance of almost everything and the WeGo bus picks up right outside the hotel. Our room was clean, we had plenty of towels and never had any issues. Excellent room and excellent value!

Dining tip: Not Applicable

Dining is expensive in Niagara. The Oakes gives you a couple of dining tickets to Applebees, Niagara Grill, and Remmingtons but the price is still high. I would reccommend bringing your own food if you want to save money or taking your car elsewhere. Also, parking is $20/night but you can stay in the casino lot for $5 as long as you don't move your car...and you really shouldn't have to!
