Oakwood Motel
Ranked #2 of 8 Hotels in Gravenhurst
Reviewed 22 July 2014

This is an older motel located downtown Gravenhurst close to McDonald's and Tim Horton's. Renata checked us in and was super nice and accommodating. They have a rare type of customer service that is hard to find these days. The bathroom, bedding and room was clean and fresh. The beds were quite comfy and the noise from adjacent rooms was close to nil. You won't find new furniture, a flat screen TV, a pool, a weight room or a continental breakfast but if you don't mind an older motel with some thoughtful touches, then this place is an excellent place to stay. Compared to other motels in the area this one is much more affordable.

We cannot say enough good things about this motel, we stayed in the little cabin type rooms and it was great! Comfortable and friendly with a nice little area for little kids to play. The owners were friendly and helpful, everything we could have asked for in a short getaway.

Room Tip: We stayed in the 'cabin' type rooms that had little kitchenettes and are at the back of the...

An overnight stay we very much enjoyed. Friendly service, quaint room, quiet, equipped kitchenette, VERY clean and well maintained. Our bathroom had a shower (no bath) which suited us fine, and while some might remark that the room was not, say, 'ultra modern', it was very comfortable and more than suited our needs. We plan on returning to Gravenhurst again, and will definitely book there again.

Oh, and the fact that they refused to allow the woman with pets stay at the motel and gave a negative rating (that backfired, I think) was the deciding factor for us TO book. So happy that they have standards that they stick to for pets, smoking, etc.

Upon our arrival we were vary pleased to meet the friendly and very helpful owners,Renata and Markus who showed us the room. I fell in love with the place as soon as I walked inside! After staying in 3 other hotels in the past 2 weeks...I felt like I was home. From the curtains to the magazines this place spells comfort. I will stay here again. Next time we will bring some food to take advantage of the mini kitchen! Did I mention how super clean our room was?

This is a very clean basic motel at a good price. Beds were comfortable and room was very quiet. It had everything we needed for an overnight stay. My friend said it reminded her of her grandfather's cottage and I found it very charming. It is basic so it didn't have a hair dryer (I didn't need one). Shampoo and soap are provided and are in little packets. The owners are very nice and recommended restaurants for us. We were staying in town for a volleyball tournament and I would definitely stay here again. It is more interesting than the chain hotels.

Room Tip: Room 7 is at the end and has two double beds. Good size room.

Owners where super nice and very accommodating. Very clean and the bed was comfortable. We didn't spend much time in the cottage but it was exactly what we needed. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Riding motorcycles, we'd been rained off Manitoulin Island and were looking for somewhere to retrieve a few days holiday. We selected Oakwood Motel in Gravenhurst. Renate gave us one of her cabins. We had two queen sized beds and a decent kitchenette equipped with enough stuff to avoid restaurants for a few meals.
Her property is maintained to a very high standard. No they don't accept pets, but her attention to detail makes her rooms among the cleanest I've been in and most likely good for those with allergies.
Renate is a delight as hostess of her domain. We shared a cup of tea and her quick wit and storytelling was great fun one late afternoon. Yes, Renate, your motorcycle friends enjoyed their stay and will definitely return next time Muskoka beckons.
