No complaints about the room or food but felt the front desk could of been a little more welcoming. Offered us no information on check in other then the key, did not know spa hours or let us know about their pool etc. mix up on spa treatment charges on check out and they could not help at all.

We have stayed at the Osthoff on and off for the last 13 years. When the kids were younger (under 10 or so) it was a great place because everything is right there and the condo offerings are so much better than trying to stay in a regular hotel room. The beach is just a short walk and is well... More

Tucked on the shore of Elkhart Lake, near Road America is the Osthoff Resort. My stay was there for business but I will return with friends to participate in their on - site cooking school. The two restaurants were beyond wonderful. A surprising treat at Otto's was a baked berry pancake. Amazing! It's definitely worth the slightly confusing drive to... More

The Osthoff is a sprawling complex of recent vintage with lovely manicured grounds and a pseudo-Late Victorian vinyl exterior that in some ways mimics the older resorts just adjacent to it. The building felt both imposing and somewhat incongruous upon the approach, clearly more functional for things like the convention I was attending, but out of scale with its emphatically... More

We stayed here & visited the spa for a romantic weekend. It is clearly a place for families. The rooms have big kitchens and the couches fold out into beds. It was clean but not fancy. We're saving our next visit until there are some rug rats in tow.

I stayed here for a conference and was prepared for a lesser stay because often groups get the lesser rooms. When I was told all the conference rooms (i.e., smaller ones) were only in one area, I was prepared for a bad experience in a place with a beautiful lobby but substandard rooms. That impression held when I looked at... More

Everything was wonderful! We had a nice romantic getaway and couldn't ask for a better room. The king size bed was to die for and the pillows were heavenly! We had a suite and everything was there, wine glasses, silverware, plates, etc. the two person tub was also incredible! We used it every night when we stayed! The grounds were... More

Stayed at the Osthoff resort and had a great weekend. The beds were comfortable and the two bedroom suite was roomy. The spa services were also very good. The service was a little slow in Otto's restaurant and at the spa at check-in and check-out but since I was there to relax, it was not a big deal.

FANTASTIC hotel! We were just there for a convention this weekend. We had a 2-room HC Accessible suite, rooms 411A and 411B. The rooms are very beautiful and more than spacious! We had a kitchenette, a pantry with basic plates and utensils and pots and pans. A dining table for 4, a couch and 2 chairs and a fireplace! The... More
