The staff attitude was terrible. The check in process was so painful. Rude staff. Car park was 35 usd - as in previous reviews. Barrier not working- so did not use it. I got the voucher - for dinner and breakfast. Dinner was so so... the waitress was singing - nice touch. Breakfast at Applebee’s. Not in the hotel. One word - HORRIBLE experience. Hardly any waitresses/waiters. We went at 0815, didn’t get seated until 0915 .... ended up having a takeout.. The view from the 17th floor was good. Only saving grace for an otherwise poorly maintained - with extremely rude reception staff.

Dear RR Thank you for sharing your experience with us, i am sorry to hear that your reception from front desk was not friendly or warm, this is not the standard of the Oakes hotel and will be addressed right away. We will pass along your feedback to both restaurants as well so that they may see how they did and were improvement is needed.

Perfect Stay

You can not get a better view of the Falls than from a Falls View Room at the Oakes hotel. Yes, the hotel has basic amenities, no bar, but when you look out of your window and see Niagara, it really doesn't matter. The staff were friendly, our room was 2 story and suited all our needs. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Family catch up

Rooms were very basic and not very clean. Main toilets in the foyer were very unclean. Asked for a room overlooking the falls as this was stated in the syllabus.... Hotel does not overlook the falls at all. Complaints to staff were disregarded. Definitely would avoid this hotel in the future.

Getaway.......... Disappointed

Booked fallsview room only to find out the deceit. The front desk girl had condescending attitude. I mentioned about the room and what floor we had, which was 2nd, with no view,only to be told by her and very rude to go to the 14th floor observation tower if we wanted view. Construction in the hallways, very inconvenient. Experience there very disappointing, not recommending to anyone!!!!

Great Location

The room's view overlooking the Falls was great, although the decor and furnishings were somewhat jaded and tired. There are no facilities for eating or drinking at the hotel and the reception area can get congested. We were only there for two nights and that was about right.

Fantastic view of falls

If you want a room with a view, this is the place to stay! Great view of the falls. Staff let's them down a bit... No free wifi, and the option to pay for it was not offered at arrival. Didn't really make an effort , which even the cheap motel 6 lodges staff do! Think they are relying on location, location, location....
