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.

Family Getaway

Hotel was great, the staff could have been more friendly and check in was at 3:00 but did not have our room ready till 4:30 so having to wait in lobby with kids was very inconvenienced, but overall was a great place.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

I would recommend bringing your own drinks with you if you can due to a 20oz bottled water or soda is $3.00 a piece, and food is double the price you would pay in the states.
