4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed on the ground floor, upper main lodge overlooking golf course. Quiet and spacious but not completely clean. When looking for somewhere to recharge my iPad I looked behind a couch and found an empty water bottle and other paper scraps. Breakfast at dining room good if overpriced. Eager to get to the beach which is 2-3 min walk.... More

I just spent 5 days and 4 nights at the Oakwood Resort in Grand Bend for a conference. The grounds are stunning as is the golf course. The grounds keepers work very hard to keep the entire resort looking beautiful. Our large group had the entire resort while we were there. All meals also were eaten here and prepared and... More

We took the scenic route on the way back from Michigan. After not moving for several minutes due to road works we turned around and checked in to the resort. Staff were very helpful and booked us a golf game for $30 incl cart, early morning tee off. The meal in the pub was satisfactory, not fine dining, efficient waitress... More

Booked a room this past Saturday as a little get away for myself and my hubby. As I travel often past the resort, we never had the opportunity to visit. We arrived a little early and the room was ready. Beautiful grounds, very inviting....until we got the key to our room. Cabin 78. Tremendously disappointed! For $300.00+ a night, definitely... More

My family and I stayed at the Oakwood from Sep.9-11 for a wedding. Overall, we were disappointed with stay. While the grounds are beautiful, the rooms are not. Instead, they are dark, uninviting, and tired. Small attempts have been made at renos, but these seem cheap. Our room smelled musty and was freezing. We tried to turn the heat on... More

Stayed at Oakwood last week, the week following Labor Day. The startup was a little rocky - we requested something thru the original Expedia reservation that could not be done...only found out about it when I called. The lady at the front desk was pretty snarky - nothing like a Marriott, that's for sure. She basically wanted to chastise me... More

The golf course - overall, is nothing really challenging. A few tee offs from the fake grass and rubber tees kind of suck but, not horrible. The course was well maintained and a fun course to play. Full bar offered from beer carts, which is nice. Price of those drinks though, well, $6 for spirits and $6.25 for beer. A... More

We've stayed a few time at the Oakwood both in the winter and summer, and although it has its advantages, such as walking distance to a small beach, a decent golf course and a pub, the property in general has seen better days. This place could be amazing if the rooms were renovated, the wood panelling was gone, the common... More
