The views from our room of the Horseshoe Falls and nightly fireworks couldn't be better. The location is close to everything and within a short walk to restaurants and all the falls activities as well as Clifton Park. The room was clean, free coffee in the morning, and the staff was very helpful, kind, and professional.
Terrible customer service, misadvertisement and no wifi
Ok, very shady description! Overlooking the falls? That's a joke! You'll be overlooking a motel driveway that doesn't even have wifi. Very shady description, they make you believe you're getting a nice hotel room then put you in a motel next door yet charge you a hotel price.
No wife, paid hotel price-- was sent to a motel next door
It wasn't worth the money at all. The room was dark, felt dirty. There were stains on the pillows, and had to kill a couple of bugs. Bathroom was dingy and dirty feeling. The place was overall very tired looking.
Friendly staff, nice location , quiet room except the air conditioner
Noisy air conditioner
Good location and nice environment
Restaurants and places nearby
Attitude of the personnel and so negative and not very helpful at all!!!
View. Since there were no leaves on trees yet, the view of the falls was good.
No refrigerator in room, no microwave, additional fee for parking, then no room in hotel lot to park. Ice machines only on odd floors of hotel. Staff unresponsive to concerns. Tourist trap, nothing included, everything required an 'upgrade'. Obviously not looking for repeat business.
walking distance to city amenities and the Falls a plus. The view from the room was amazing. Entrance lovely.
The costs were exorbitant for off season, middle of the week. The room should have had a micro wave, fridge, luggage rack for that money. Parking fee was ridiculous ($25) and a surprise for an outdoor parking space. We were given someone else's parking card initially. Armchair seat cushion in room sagged. Why is there paper on the hallway windows? Stairwells were dirty and crude. A continental breakfast should be included for that cost. The room had a tired,dated appearance in contrast to the main entrance.
If your room is on the higher floors, the view of the Horseshoe Falls is fantastic.
Parking is expensive.
Not coming back
The location to the falls and walking distance to our favorite restaurants is fantastic. The staff was friendly and efficient.
It appears there was a old two story hotel and the added the high rise later. We stayed in the out dated part of the hotel. The room smelled musty and old. It was a disappointing experience.
One of the only things that this hotel had in its "pros" column was the closeness to Niagara Falls, and the fact that we were able to check in 2 hours early.
Where do I begin? Once we checked in in the chlorine-scented lobby, we loaded our luggage in the elevator to head to our room. Because the hotel only has one spot for guest elevators, we spent the next 4-5 minutes walking the long and winding hallways to locate our room. Once in our room, we noticed the strange set up for the bathroom: toilet and shower/tub in a closed room, sink exposed in the main living area shielded only by a small wall. Moving into the bed/living room, our "view of the Niagara" was awfully green; apparently the trees hadn't been trimmed in a while. We called to the front desk to see if we could switch rooms. While the staff member was friendly, he informed us that because we booked a room with 2 double beds, he could do nothing for our concerning our "view." Since we drove 6+ hours to see Niagara Falls, we needed a place to park our vehicle while we explored. Fortunately, the hotel has a good sized parking lot that they allow guests to utilize...for a small fee of $25 per day. My next trip to Niagara, I will most likely splurge and book one of the nicer hotels neighboring Oak Hotel.
Be aware of the motel section of that section
I only liked the location
1. Be aware that this hotel has motel like section with doors open to the outside. 2. Also, house keeping was banging on the door and window at 9am with the DO NOT DISTURBE sign on the door. 3. The beds they had in the room were full size not queen.
Treated like second class citizens
The only good thing was you were close to lots of fun stuff in Niagara Falls and could "kind of" see the falls from your window. (4th level)
They "upgraded" us in a room with a king sized bed that was actually a double bed made up for one adult. We had to call down twice for extra pillows. They actually put us in a wheelchair accessible room 421 with no tub, grab bars everywhere, and a chair in the shower. The water gets everywhere in the bathroom because there is no lip to keep the water in when we put the white towel on the floor to stop the water it turned black underneath from??? Dirty floors. There is no fan in the bathroom to remove the steam so when you shower it gets really hot and hard to breathe. Then, after you run the water there is this terrible rattling sound in the wall the pipes make. The dresser drawers are broken and hazards and never stay shut. When this was brought to the attention of staff upon checkout they basically apologized and said that "well we upgraded you, we would have put you on ground level outside in the motel next door with booking.com" because we only paid $265 for the night.. Who knew that the shitty motel next door to the hotel was actually a part of the hotel. It looks like somewhere you go to get murdered not a place you spend $300 bucks to stay. I suggest save your money and go somewhere else. Would only be worth it to spend maybe $50 but parking in itself is $25.
With a stay at Oakes Hotel Overlooking the Falls in Niagara Falls (Fallsview), you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Horseshoe Falls and Skylon Tower. Featured amenities include express check-out, a 24-hour front desk, and luggage storage. Self parking (subject to charges) is available onsite.
