From the first hour to my last hour in the hotel it was clear to me that the staff not only understands their expectations, but truly strives to deliver an experience that you wouldn't get any where else. The entire staff should be commended. The quality of the service and facility greatly exceeded my expectations. The free breakfast was truly... More

A bit difficult to get to up a winding road but worth it. Room was nice, breakfast was great staff was great. Coming from the freeway you have to go past it and drive up a road that felt like a parking lot and then turn in to the left.

The hotel was nice and clean. It's a little hard to get to it because of the way the area is designed. Has an outdoor pool and decent continental breakfast. Plenty of parking, even for larger vehicles.

Arriving tired and hungry, I was simply ready for someplace to crash. However, entering the building we were greeted by a warm and inviting, seasonally decorated lobby. That set the tone as we encountered a pleasant desk clerk, followed by a clean and comfortable room. We were also provided with some options for dinner out, one of which turned out... More

Had another great stay at the Best Western in Oakwood. Was there with a group and everything was very nice. Great staff at check-in, perfectly adequate workout facility, great breakfast on time and a very nice room. Nice common areas as well. Will stay again.

The hotel was very comfortable, rooms clean, breakfast excellent and very helpful staff. It is also very pretty when you walk into the front doors, Staircase, fireplace and seating area and a Christmas Tree! Very nice to come home to each night.

I typically go to Hampton Inn because of their continuity between hotels and cleanliness, however, this Best Western in Oakwood, GA came with high recommendations. I now understand why - the staff went above and beyond to ensure my stay was comfortable. I was pleased with the cleanliness and amenities. If I return to Oakwood, GA, I will definitely stay...
