I loved our stay at the Oakes. They staff was VERY helpful and knowledgable. Applebee's and Remington's staff and quality of service and food was exceptional! We responded with extra tipping $. We were within walking distance of all sights. I strongly am against the extra 8% tax we had to pay, and the answers we received. We went to...

This hotel has the best view of the falls. The staff was very helpful they even went to the pool area to tell my kids that it was time to come back to the room and get ready. They didn't have to do that. I was pleasantly surprised by their service. Overall a great hotel to stay at. Worth every...

Great location, rooms where clean with a fantastic view. Having 1 out of 3 elevators working on a holiday weekend meant for long waits to go up/down. Staff didn't seem overly concerned, not a way to make a good impression.

Decided to try staying here again as they were advertising newly renovated king suites - unfortunately, when we arrived to room 2017 and opened the door it was clearly unrenovated with dark brown drapes, peeling beige wall paper and a dirty dusty cheap laminate floor. The layout could be considered a suite if you wanted to move a dresser with...

Thank you for your review, I apologize that the room was not to your satisfaction. We have just installed the laminate flooring trying to see what our guests think about it. We have also starting installing new carpet into the other suite rooms. As well as a new bedding program to start in late May. also hopefully adding fridges in...

We went on a special deal. After paying upfront, we were told in a further email that we were in the unrenovated motel section. 70s decor but clean comfy and more expansive than modern decor - large everything. The only issue I have with the hotel is not staff,cleanliness or contact with the surroundings but the overall decision making of...

So we got to stay on the 19th floor, this part of the hotel only has 4 rooms per floor (I think its the 12-21). Parking as other people have mentioned sucks (there's not really enough), and part of it is kind of sketchy. You can't beat the view. The room is older (ie it smells musty, the couch creaks...

Great place to stay and you won't find a location closer to the falls. Make sure you pay the extra $ for the falls side of the hotel and our room on the 11th was very nice. As US guest we had a great deal with the present currency exchange. Be prepared for a whole host of city and county...

Thank you for your review, we are pleased that your view and room met your needs. We do offer one of the best views of the falls around. At our hotel we have tax of 13% and 8% tourism fee applied to all nightly room rates. You are right the exchange rate is great for American travellers at the moment....

Great view of the falls from our room. Older hotel that has been modernized recently. Pleasant staff, always helpful when asked questions or queried for extra room items (towels, coffee, etc.). Rooms neat & tidy, restful sleep, etc. - not the Ritz, but for the price, a great value.

Thank you Cheryl for the wonderful review, girls weekends are always great. The casino package is very popular as we are located directly beside the casino and 3 min walk to the front entrance. We hope you will return again!

“"Falls side"or "River view" means obstructed view of the falls. If you want to see the falls only book a "Falls VIEW" room.”
 of 5 bubbles Mikedsn, 7 Jan 2017 | Read review
“Higher floors always give a better view (for a price). Check "final" costs before booking, as the add-on's costs come unexpectedly.”
