“A weekend escapade”
Reviewed July 19, 2009

We stayed at the oakridge hotel for a weekend event with our culinary club.
The room we were assigned was very nice, clean and well maintained. We had a view n the small lake next to the hotel. There is a trail around the lake where you can walk,
The quality of the food and beverage was outstanding.We started with a giantgantic paella.
The staff was very friendly and professional at the same time.
We had been there before and we will certainly come again.
A great weekend escapade, just 30 minutes from downtown Minneaplis

We stayed for two nights and were amazed by the quiet solitude of the motel. The lake view was beautiful and would love to return in the summer months. Our room had wall to wall windows overlooking the lake and included a window seat-beds were so comfortable. We purchased the room with breakfast and were so impressed with the service and food--especially Laurie the omelet chef -ingredients were fresh and varied as was fruit offerings. the motel is beautiful with massive fireplaces and soaring lake views. there were many verandas and patios to enjoy the view-also greenways for exploring the countryside. We were only 20 minutes from the va hospital, airport and mall of america. will never again stay near the moa with hordes of badly behaved children and rude vacationers.

Stayed here for 8 nights. A beautiful and very comfortable property. Comfortable beds, great food, and very helpful and friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again. A great location for business meetings or family events.

  • Liked — comfortable accommodations and friendly people
  • Disliked — isolated and not close to a lot of things

We were there for a wedding and could not have been more pleased with the quality of service, exceptional food and the building itself. Beautiful grounds and caring staff made it a very special event..

I just returned from the Oak Ridge after being there for a conference [about 100-120 people] from noon Friday, over night, until noon on Saturday.

The rooms are excellent, but the key system (with credit card type magnetic strip) is frustrating because one has to find the precise speed at which the card must be swiped - picky, picky, no doubt.

The food is outstanding - tasty with good variety. The service, including front desk, lounge and wherever we had occasion to observe it, is impeccable. Having to park some distance from the front door involves some healthful walking or using the courteous bellman, valet services.

The directional signs leave something to be desired - a problem which an accomplished Sign consultant/company could solve simply and expeditiously.

One needs to look and think carefully to find anything of significance to critique. Overall, an excellent venue with a dramatic gas-fired fireplace topped with a gleaming chimney.

With the availability of places like the Oak Ridge, Minnesota's reputation as a destination of excellence will continue to grow.

  • Liked — The courtesy of the staff
  • Disliked — Can't find anything to fit in here.

On the advice of a friend, we purchased a week-end package at Oak Ridge. Our stay was fabulous, the package included dinner and breakfast. Our room must have been recently renovated as it looked like we were the first ones to stay in it. Our room had a great view over the lake. The staff were very friendly and went out of there way to make us feel special. We even had a table next to the incredible marble fireplace. The food was excellent, I had the rack of lamb and my wife had the stuffed chicken breast. We shared an unbelievable cheesecake with passion fruit carmel sauce. We had a lot to work off the next morning. I couldn't believe their gym and work out facilities-really state of the art (they have a great story about their equipment).
