This hotel is not even 5 miles from the track, it's got comfortable beds, clean rooms and great staff. The breakfast is excellent with hot eggs, hash browns, oatmeal, waffles and lots of other great stuff.

Dear RacingMom, I'm very happy to hear you had a wonderful stay with us. I'll let our Breakfast Attendants and Guest Service Associates know you appreciated their service as much as you did the comfort of our beds, and the variety of breakfast items! I hope you visit us again on all future race events you attend in our area.... More

We had a great stay here. The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was pretty standard fare. The only critism I had was the shampoo and conditioner which were very small and barely enough for one person. It was a bit difficult to get to. We had to drive through a Walmart parking lot to get to it. I would... More

I was very pleasantly surprised when we arrived at this hotel how welcoming the staff are, how clean and presentable the hotel appeared. The breakfast was fresh and good, the rooms were very clean and the hotel was very unique. The best part I have to say is the service from the staff, they were extremely welcoming and very helpful...

Front desk was very professional and check in and out was quick and uneventful. Rooms are big and roomy and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was very good for a hotel breakfast. Eggs, bacon, hash browns and grits were serviced as well as the typical baggles and mUffins. I am running out of things to say so I'm just... More

Top shelf, zero issues. A very, very good place to hang your hat. I spend at least 150 nights per year on the road. It sucks but it is what it is - If I have to be on the road - I want more places like Best Western Plus in Oakwood to exist. Great, absolutely great place to stay.

Best Bargain (BW PLUS LAKE LANIER/GAINESVILLE) Not the cheapest and far from the most expensive BUT perhaps the best bargain in the Gainesville, GA area for a one or two night stay. The staff was friendly, the manager John was impressive, the accommodations met my threshold for cleanliness, comfort and close proximity to interstate and navigating the surrounding area. I...

We arrived at this hotel in the midst of a winter ice storm. Through no fault of the hotel, the power kept going on and off. Despite that, the staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Tina got us checked in while trying to handle about 15 anxious other guests. Ian walked us upstairs to our room by... More
