High priced and rude service!!!

The good... The location to the falls is awesome, and if you get a fallsview room.. Even better!..... Ok, the bad... When we checked in no one ever welcomed us!! The lady at the front desk said " name?" and checked us in.. You have to prepay for you parking up front!! $15 bucks per day!! Plus tax!!... The rooms are comfortable, but very outdated!! It seems the hotel is all about the view and nothing else!! No one including concierge ever greets you coming or going!! The staff at this hotel will treat you as if you are a burden instead of a guest!! Only come to this hotel for the view of the falls only and nothing else!!!! We will not stay at this hotel again.. We met some people who were staying at the embassy, and they loved it!!! If your looking for customer service do NOT stay at the oaks!!! The staff will make you feel as if your at the DMV!!!

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Mcdonalds is on Stanley road. Go here for breakfast... All other restuarants around the hotel offer a all you can eat buffet for 6.99 , but will also charge you $3 for a small orange juice.. And be prepared for 18% tax everywhere!!! It is very expensive at niagra falls!! For every $100 you spend $18 will be for tax!!!

The hotel was beautiful. We were on the 17th floor and we had a awesome few of the falls. We will certainly go back to Niagara Falls and stay at that hotel again.

Great Views

Great location to view the falls. Plenty of restuarants nearby. They only had ice machines on every other floor. They charged $15.00 a day to use an empty refrigerater in your room, otherwise; it was locked. Workout room was a sham.

Great Vacation

The location was great walking distance to the falls,restaurants and all you need. i love the the view from the fallviews 6 floor we saw fireworks and ilumination of the falls at night. room was basic and very clean, tv sucks no too many channels. the food court at the casino next door was very affordable, they told me the casino buffet is great and cheap but you have to be 19 years old; and we were traveling with my daughter thats 5 so we couldnt enjoy. one of my best trip the falls are an amazing creation of God.

Oakes Hotel

The hotel is in a great location, but the building is a little run-down on the exterior and in the corridors and rooms. The lobby is nice and has been updated fairly recently. The staff and reception was just ok.
