The owner Gail is so accommodating and sweet. The room was perfect for my husband and me. We already made reservations for July and will enjoy sitting by the pool. Great location and easy access to the highway.

If you are a smoker who loves loud talking and the bright aroma of Lysol over cigarette droppings, this is the place for you. Wow! Really? And, it is pricey for such a dump. No working TV on top of the horrid odor. My husband and I couldn't sleep because the odor was so deadly. The continental breakfast is the... More

My husband and I stayed over the weekend while I was performing nearby and we loved our experience at the Oakdell. The price was affordable, the room comfortable and more clean than any chain hotel I have ever experienced. I will stay there again and again. Thanks Gail!

Surprisingly, in a Saturday busy night, there were... More
