Reviewed November 22, 2012

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.

Stayed: November 2012, traveled with family

It was a nice clean place to stay. The bed was very comfortable. The furniture was clean and comfortable. There was a jaccuzi tub and an overhead heater in the bathroom. The kitchen was complete and had everything that we needed. We didn't have time to use the laundry, pool or excercise room. It wasn't a new resort, but was well maintained.

Room Tip: It has everything that you need without a lot of extras. The bed was the best one that we slept in o...

First, I want to clear up any misconceptions that I have read on tripadvisor:

KITCHEN: There is plenty of room for 2 people unless 1 of them is short and weighs 300 pounds.
It is true that there is not a lot of room in there, but this idea that 2 people cannot fit in there
is ridiculous. My boyfriend and I could both fit in there fine, but my brother had to be
in there by himself. However, 2 people cannot move very fast in there.


ACTIVITIES: DO go to the informational session that is held on Monday mornings. We learned a
lot of information about what was going on around town AND got half price tix on some events,
discounts on others. Did not go to activities at the time share. Indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs were clean.
There was also a sauna. The fitness center was rarely in use and included a full nautilus machine, stationary bike and treadmill. Very nice and spacious.

2 washers and dryers, complimentary to use, in most
buildings, no problem with availability. Wi Fi in room was $5 for the WEEK!


We are not owners here and this is the first time we have been here. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit. Everything was clean and in working order. The beds
were VERY comfy! The kitchen stuff left a bit to be desired . . .no strainer for spaghetti,
no mixing bowls, service for 6 people if you don't use the silverware for something else. The dishes
are the crock kind, heavy and break easily. Take up a lot of room in the tiny dishwasher. We
didn't use the kitchen to actually cook in very much, just made salads, sandwiches, breakfast, so
we were not inconvenienced but some people may want to know this information. We bought paper plates
instead, so we were not running the dishwasher every day. Cups and all were fine.

We were on the 2nd floor and could hear people above us sometimes but it did not disturb us. They did not
wake us up and we slept til 9 or 10 every day. We were in building 7 facing the gazebo and there was
no traffic noise. There are no elevators. We checked in at 1 a.m., no problem. Night maintenance
took care of us. Excellent location. Did not go to Tuesday night bring a dish. Ignored the time share phone calls.

Had a great time!

Room Tip: Get a room on the ground floor since there are no elevators and one away from the traffic.

we stayed 7 nights at the Oakmont resort In Pigeon forge Tn. we stayed in a 2 BR 2 bath APT. It was imaculate. everything in the apt was new. It is an older resort that has the experience to know how to cater to their guests needs. The beds were GREAT. The kitchen was stocked with all the necesseties you would need to prepare the best gourmet meals.Every thing was so clean it look like it had never been used. The bathrooms were spotless. They even had free washer and dryers. 2 pools one indoors and one out. It was very quiet.No neighbor noises comming through the walls. I highly recomend this resort.

Room Tip: no need to worry they are all good.

We have been owners at Oakmont since 1990. Always great staff. We to noticed that some of the units needed an upgrade and as we always stay in building 4, our upgrade has been completed. Very comfortable units and a gret selection of restaurants, shopping and site seeing inm the area.
Come and enjoy.

We stayed at Oakmont in Pigeon Forge in March 2012, And absolutely and completely fell in love with the place. The staff was very Courteous, and very Informative of the area. I could tell 2 hours before we arrived that this place was gonna be good, On our way down, we ran into a construction zone on interstate, that had traffic backed up for 20 miles and moving at a snail pace. Which was putting way past check-in, the office closed at 7, and we were a hundred miles away at 7, so we called ahead, explained the situation, and they had someone stay over and wait for us, this to me, was above and beyond customer loyalty. they didnt charge us for the late arrival, and even chatted with us for a while. I was hooked at that point. Oakmont is not a large market like Wyndham, and some of the others, The ammenities to some might have been a little less than what they anticipated, but heres the thing, I have dealt with Wyndham, and some other larger ones, and wasnt treated anywhere close to this good.. These guys are top notch.. the place was nice.. it was clean, and the experience was fabulous!! We will be back!! again and again...

Room Tip: Any room is good , the way the resort is laid out, everything is close by. Enjoy your stay!

This resort is a little dated, but other than that we have nothing negative to say about it. Great value for the money. Staff is very cooperative and helpful. Pools are clean and grounds are well kept. Location is excellent as it is close to everything. We are already talking of a return visit.
