Our room was clean, and the area was perfect. Just off of main street. Soft bed. Staff was nice and helpful. We liked being about to sit outside. We were only able to stay one night but we will be back.

This is an older motel, park in front of your room, enjoy sitting on a lawn chair, or walk two or three blocks to downtown. Clean, reasonably priced, great location. Highly recommend this classic motel.

We have stayed at the Oak Park several times before but always in a standard hotel room. My wife needed a sofa to sleep upright due to a breathing problem. The Oak Park has a couple of rooms that are really two rooms with beds in one part and sofa and easy chairs in the other. Who knew? My wife... More

As a reviewer below me mentioned, we were camping up on the Blue Ridge Parkway and were having consistent bad weather. It was our 2nd day of bad weather and it was obvious it wasn't going to stop. Somehow I managed to have a cell phone signal and I went online to find a nearby hotel. We looked for something... More

This small, independent motel within walking distance of eclectic downtown Waynesville, NC is run by super nice folks, features 40-some rooms that are clean, homey, with a retro motor court vibe. Reasonably priced and near many mountain attractions, don't drive by without checking it out. Coffee and pastries are served each morning along a wealth of info about places to... More

We stayed here on a camping tour down Blue Ridge Parkway, after four consecutive nights of bad weather and a soaking tent... This place is your run-of-the-mill roadside motel; it is clean, the manager is nice, there is free wifi and coffee with pastries in the morning. The restaurant nearby is very good, by the way.

We stayed here in june 2014. The rooms are old yes, but exceptionally clean. Paid 89$, and yes best westerns provide shampoo and this place doesn't, however this is an independent business with character. A cheap chain hotel would cost the same and have none of the characterand probably be very dirty. SService was good.

I am torn to write this review as we just got back and we truly love the Oak Park Inn. I am a local who stayed here 12-15 years ago and knew what to expect. It hasn't changed a bit and I would consider it a motel, retro ( think maple furniture, pine panelling and country critter wallpaper trim) super... More

We love Waynesville especially during their Music Street Festivals. A very short walk from the motel to the main street makes this the best motel in the area to stay. It isn't fancy, but it is clean and comfortable. Priced right. We enjoy the locally owned motels when we travel. Staff was very friendly.

Kind of a retro motor motel in style. No dining on site, but the owner recommended a family style restaurant a short walk away, which was very good. Beds were extremely comfortable. The room was clean. The included breakfast consisted of cellophane wrapped pastries and coffee or tea with powdered whitener. We opted for another walk to another restaurant in... More
