Great family weekend trip

Awesome place to stay overlooking the falls. Great views from the room as we had a falls view room and a very short walk to the casino. Will stay here again on my next trip to Niagara.

Great location - pay extra for the view!!!!

We had a great time at Oakes, largely caused we stumped up extra for the view and weren't disappointed - it was good. If you're expecting a lovely lobby, bar, decent restaurant and communal / social areas, don't stay here, but if you want views, a pool, friendly service and recently decorated rooms then it's a great option. And seriously, pay extra for the view, well worth the money! We didn't want to leave our room!

Perfect location

Yes - it was a great room and an ideal location to experience and view the falls. The beds were comfortable with a full bath to utilise. The lifts were fast and it was close to all the local attraction. Very quiet.

Fun filled anniversary

Everything was pretty good besides having to pay $20 a day for parking. Nothing ever said that before I booked the room. Also I had to ask to get our room cleaned after the first night.

Has been good, but not this time

We parked and went into the lobby to check in to find a line up of at least 40 people deep on Saturday afternoon at 4pm. The 2 people on the desk did a pretty good job of making their way through the line, but it was still half and hour at least. Right away we were not impressed with the double bed option and of course - more money to get a queen, but so be it. We got our "courtyard" room and headed off to find it. Well the room was a 5 minute walk from the elevator with all of our stuff. A dingy hallway with multiple steps and turns along the way. When we finally got to our room, it was overlooking the parking lot - not sure if "courtyard" is synonymous with parking lot or not, but again - so be it. We didn't notice at first, but the floor at the entrance and in the bathroom area was ICE cold!! The walls were clearly very thin as we could hear the people talking in the next room. Basically - it felt like we were in a motel room, but at hotel prices. It was "ok" for our purposes. UNTIL we were woken up at 3am because of the party a door or 2 down the hall. My wife called down to the front desk a couple of times. Eventually the police came and evicted the people from the room at about 6am. We were finally able to get a few hours sleep. I titled the review - Has been good, but not this time, because I have stayed here before - in the "tower" and it was fine. This time was anything but fine. If you plan on staying here - make sure you are in the tower and not in the "motel" part of the establishment. We are now waiting for a refund.

The package they have with Remingtons and breakfast is a good deal. Food is pretty good, the hotel will shuttle you back and forth and the singing waitresses makes it fun.

bad hotel staff

Walking in and dealing with unprofessional staff was enough to put you off , room was like the staff bad .We have been travelling around US and Canada for 5 weeks had always been greeted by polite staff . What I have experienced and reading other reviews , it seems that booking directly with the hotel , which is more expensive , is equal to better treatment

Good value for money !!!!

Other than the basic amenities missing (fridge), no free to air TV channels & the hidden charges for the car parking fees (15$) the hotel is good value for money, the best view at the falls !!!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Park your car at the big parking lot of the casino resort (covered multi story car park,5 mins walk from the hotel) for only 5$ per 24 hrs (credit card only, or else u need to go down to the vallet area to pay)
