Wilson Lodge at Oglebay Resort & Conference Center

Reviewed July 8, 2014

After reading some of the reviews on this website, I was a bit nervous about staying there. My sister and I traveled here the end of June to attend the wedding of my brother who was getting married in the Caddy Camp Cabin. Though this is an older resort, the ambience and nostalgic feel to it was quite charming. As we were driving into the resort, we were stunned to see many deer laying in the ruts on the side of the road. They are everywhere, so take your time driving around. The grounds are impeccable. The pool was large and clean. Our room in the older section of the Wilson Lodge, though dated, served us well for our weekend stay. The staff was pleasant and we had no complaints. We opted for the bed and breakfast package and the breakfast buffet was delicious with enough selections to please everyone. We dined one night at the Glassworks Lounge and found the food to be good.

We visited the Good Zoo and were amazed at the variety of animals - some of which are endangered species. Instead of taking the train to get around, we opted to travel on foot which took us about 1-1/2 hours but allowed us to take our time at each exhibit. Well worth the $10 admission.

The Caddy Camp where the wedding and reception were was well-maintained and air-conditioned, which was a must for the end of June. It was comfortable and the surroundings were very pleasant, even though it was in the middle of the golf course.

All-in-all I would visit this resort again. There is something for everyone here and it is a year-round resort.

Room Tip: There are older and newer sections in Wilson Lodge. The older is more dated and rustic.

My family and I have gone here every winter for the Festival of Lights and it's been such a great memory each year. We love oglebay! Would recommend it to any family :) there is so much fun things to do and lots of things for the family. The buffet is great and such a wonderful low key but fun filled thing to do!

We stayed in the newer section '8' overlooking the grounds. It was a nice view and the room, a suite (it had a couch and a desk) had a fireplace. The room was comfortable, included a nespresso coffee machine. Listed as the fourth floor, it was really on the second floor. We were there to play golf, so we did not use the spa or visit any of the other facilities, although we have stayed in the past and visited the museums (glass, Oglebay home, etc) and walked the grounds and pond. Nice when the weather is good - it is a beautiful area. The staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant food - both the bar and the restaurant - is really only so-so - and as we have eaten here many times over the years, this is consistent, and seem to cater to groups of men playing golf, as well as families (which isn't surprising). They offer a lot of packages which are probably better deals, depending on what you are visiting for, and there are more amenities than we took advantage of during our stay, which was over a long weekend.

Spent a couple of nights, loved the July 3rd fireworks. Beautiful grounds, lots of kids stuff, very good time. Staff very friendly, but service in restaurant a little slow. Price seemed quite reasonable. Love to go back.

First off all of the staff was completely rude and with a price of almost 200.00 per night I would of appreciated not hearing the neighbors toilet flushing! Killed 5 bugs in room on the first night. Room was small and all TV stations looked as if I was watching it through a pair of 1970s rabbit ears. Worst resort I have ever stayed in this far with some of the rudest people I have ever came across!!!

My family and I have been coming to Oglebay since my son was 2 years old...he is now almost 28 years old. I am hoping that as he has children, he brings them here to create the family traditions that his father and I created for him. The rooms at the Lodge are very well-appointed, comfortable and very clean. The staff is professional and courteous, helpful and friendly. The food at the Ihlenfeld dining room is superb. There are plenty of things for people of all ages to enjoy all year round. We were here this past time for our 30th wedding anniversary and were pleased with everything as usual. We highly recommend Oglebay to all!

Room Tip: I would recommend a room in the new addition of the Lodge. The rooms are newer and well-appointed.
