My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and breakfast package offered. It was better than advertised with a wonderful dinner (pretty much everything on the menu) and a buffet breakfast. I had a steak and my wife had the tenderloin medallions - everything was hot and ready. Tasty appetizers were included in the package. The breakfast was hot and... More

If you've never spent a little time at Oakwood, you're missing a real treat. You can't beat the atmosphere of the entire facility. Friendly and accommodating with customer service at the front of their goals. Beautiful lakeside walks, golf at your doorstep and great food and views at Dave's Pub. Spent a couple days for a golf getaway......Don't miss this... More

We recently stayed at the Oakwood Resort in the quaint town of Grand Bend and had an absolutely fantastic time. The rooms were clean and spacious with a fabulous view, the golf course beautiful, and the grounds very well maintained. I would like to draw special attention to a young lady by the name of Bre who provided us with... More

I stayed at the hotel as part of a two day conference in late September. As a few other reviewers noted, the hotel had exceptionally bad luck with their room card machine breaking down on the same weekend that the power authority had planned an outage. If you are unfamiliar with the layout of the resort it is a collection... More

Didn't play golf... but decided 'Top Notch' is still a perfect description of the Oakwood Resort. :) Just returned from an overnight bike trip & stay at Oakwood. Great experience, a perfect stay! Room: Asked for an upper floor room with a balcony and nice view, and recv'd just that. We had a deluxe room in the main lodge overlooking... More

My wife and I spent a Sunday and Monday at this place. We played golf the 1st day. The course is pretty flat which is what you would expect so close to the Lake. It has a lame tee block for 1st and 10th tees, consisting of a mat similar to a driving range. The 8th, which is a par... More

We went to a conference over the weekend at the resort and everything that could go wrong did. The power went off and the key maker for the rooms was broken. The staff was tremendous. They cheerfully escorted us to our rooms, with out delay. They were apoligetic about what happened. The food was great and the price is very... More

The popular resort town of Grand Bend is desperately short of quality accommodations. Oakwood Resort is the place to stay. The resort is a collection of buildings built in a rustic style. Each of the buildings is different with different sized units, different views and facilities. Some units have balconies and some have patios. There is a very nice indoor... More

Spent two nights at the hotel for a conference. Hope to never go back. Check in was a debacle. No room keys. We were given mixed stories about this over the weekend, which just goes to show that as a business you should stick with the truth, and only the truth. The consequence was that the hotel had to give... More
