Very clean motel, nice attentive owner. She did everything possible to accommodate us, even showed us the local beach and joined us. The housekeeping was impeccable. There were fridge and microwave in the room. The motel is located at the town entry. Recommended!

I generally stay at a place across the road but they were booked so I called Oakwood. I managed to get a room. The Oakwood is amazing. The owners go above and beyond to help anyone. While I was there people pulled in looking for a place to stay, sadly she was full. The owner offered her parking lot and... More

When you drive into Gravenhurst and pass the gate you will find the Oakwood on your right. Not the original owners but they have done their best to bring the rooms into today's standards. Simple, clean and tidy. Fridge in our room and the owners were very pleasant. They do not have food on site and the town closes at... More

I believe the Oakwood is one of the original motels in this area. It is small quaint and has a very pretty garden. The owners are very nice and very attentive. The rooms are simple, clean, microwave, coffee, a mini kitchen of sorts and equipped bathroom with shower. A pleasant stay on the main road just outside of the main... More

A family owned business in a great location highly recommended on all accounts. Markus and Renata are a lovely couple who go out of their way to make your visit an excellent experience. Far far better than any motel chain in the same price range. We know as we have done some high mileage touring in Ontario, Alberta and BC... More

Excellently equipped motel. Very clean, very comfortable. Useful kitchenette area and lovely bathroom with bath and shower. Very helpful staff and reasonably priced. The owners have definitely made the best of what they have by providing a little seating area outside the rooms too. The best motel I've stayed in whilst in Canada.

From the cheerful greeting, from the host, Renata, to the clean and comfortable rooms, our May long week-end stay at the Oakwood will be a motel experience my wife and I thought was long gone.. This definitely is "No Big Chain Motel"... These people truly believe in service and customer care.... I had asked Renata if it was possible to... More

I arrived with two tiny children in the dark and pouring rain. Renata was super friendly and helpful. She found some stories for my little ones and a flashlight and wagon for me. We stayed two nights while attending a wedding. It is an easy walk to downtown, to Tims, and to the playground. We will stay here again.

Excellent value. Very clean unit, comfortable bed. Within walking distance of downtown (10 min). Hosts are super nice. Renata went out of her way to return a forgotten item. I would book here again in a heartbeat.
