My wife and I and our two children stayed in Building Four (room 406) on the basement level in a two-bedroom, two-bath apartment for a week in November. The apartment, overall, was clean upon our arrival, and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The apartment was a little dated in its decor, but it appeared to be maintained well. The kitchen was tiny... It appeared that they chose to create a really small kitchen in order to squeeze a second bathroom into the design. We found it difficult to cook in the small space, but it was not impossible. The beds were very comfortable with memory foam mattresses, and the showers were very enjoyable. The tubs had jacuzzi jets in them, but you'd have to be a very small person today in that tub comfortably. I was also impressed with the sound control. At most resorts weve stayed at, there has been a lot of noise travelling through the walls. However, my wife and i were struck by the inability to hear such noises from our room at the Oakmont. Overall, the apartment was adequate for our needs, and we enjoyed the apartment when we were in it.
As for amenities, I don't have too much to say because we didn't use many of them. There sort appeared to have an active regimen of activities going on each day, and our limited interaction with staff was pleasant. Nothing in our unit malfunctioned, so we did not interact with maintenance staff. I understand there is a pool on the premises, but we did not use it. We did use the free washer and dryer that's as just down the hall from our unit, and that was a nice plus. We considered using the wifi for Internet in our room, but it was not very fast. We instead used our cellular program as a hotspot, which was much faster. The wifi in the room provided by the resort was not free (but cheap), but it was available.
We didn't use many of the amenities because there was so much to do off the campus of the resort that we were quite busy. There were dinner shows, amusement parks, and many other activities available in the area. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at the Oakmont because it put us close to all of the action. Because of the "stress free" location and nature of the resort, my family and I would not be opposed to staying here again.
