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.

2 night mother & son get -away

We came across this deal through talking to a telemarketer; It was a fallsview room which had an awesome view; the room was clean, comfortable just needed a modern decorum; it had what we needed for the time we were there. I was relieved because the comments on a hotel review panel, for the Oakes, were very mixed but we were totally fine with our room. We did not use any of the amenities.

Dreary and tired, trading on location only.

The hotel was difficult to find. The staff at the front desk were abrupt. Beyond the lobby the hotel is a tired old affair. Hallways are damaged by luggage, carpets faded and worn. The ceiling in the room was patched, the bathroom was the worst we've encountered and the bedding was cheap and minimal. The only good feature was the view.

Hotel fine, location excellent

You cannot fault this hotel's location. Where else can you see the Horseshoe Falls from your bed? Convenient location for all tourist sites in Niagara, restaurants, parking, etc. As for the hotel itself, I'd describe it as ok for a big mid/high end hotel in a popular tourist destination. However, in a few places it was a little cheap-looking. For example the hotel lobby looked a little plain, there was an old style CRT TV in our room and our bathroom was tiny and very utilitarian-looking. But all-in-all it was clean, acceptable and I would stay there again.

You get a 10% off your bill at the Applebee's restaurant next door to the hotel if you show them your room key. Whilst there is no free Wi-Fi at the hotel, $9.99 gets you in-room Wi-Fi for the duration of your stay on any number of devices.

Not so good.

Front desk made me stand there for quite some time in front of them before checking me in and then made it seem as though I was bothering them. I detected attitude and arrogance. She pointed to the elevator and said the room was on the second floor. When I asked how do I get there exactly she said, where, the elevator, doing her best to make me feel stupid. Finding the entrance to their parking lot was a challenge. They could have shared that information. Hallways were filthy and run down.
