“A fantastic week”
Reviewed 30 July 2012

I stay at Acorn Ridge because of the warm friendly staff, clean rooms, comfortable beds and a country atmosphere. Acorn Ridge is in the country yet very convenient to Oshkosh. It is not just a motel stay, it's an experience. Coming here is like going through a time warp to times when life was less hectic. I have a fast paced lifestyle as a Physician and I like to relax when I am on vacation. If you are looking for a hotel with lots of action and fast paced night life this may not be for you, but if you would like to relax and sit out on the motel deck on a warm Wisconsin evening with other guests and many times, the motel owners, this may be for you. I come back every year and take home fond memories of people whom I have met that come to Acorn Ridge from all over the world. Thanks to the staff for another memorable week. I have already made my reservation for next year.

This place is cozy and friendly. The rooms are very comfortable with great air conditioning. The owners are great people who would do anything to make sure you enjoy your stay. Across the street is a great restaurant called Bernie's, with a excellent menu and full bar. I've stayed here 3 times so far and would definitely stay again and recommend to friends.

Thanks to the staff at the Acorn Ridge for another super stay. Eight days every year for the last eleven years.... Every year was a treat. Very clean, relaxing motife, grasious, attentive owners and staff make the stay a pleasure. Hard to beleive the pricing....very economical. We book are rooms for next year before checking oiut. We are conducting business at Air Venture and find the location of the motel extremely accommodating and peaceful after a long day. Access to a local restaraunt just across the street adds to the total package. It is so relaxing to set out on the patio and visit with the other guests and owners. We always bring our Grandchildren, what great memories. We often talk about our past trips and what are plans are for our next stay at the ACorn Ridge. Thanks again.

The lodging is pretty basic and rooms are definitely outdated, yet clean and comfortable. A little on the pricey side for what you get in my opinion, then again you are out in the country and I'm from the city. But the staff is accommodating, and it was an overall pleasant stay. Rooms are equipped with air conditioning, refrigerator, t.v., alarm clock/radio and we received a care packet from the front desk - more geared towards men (snore strips and the likes).

A walk across the street will take you over to Bernie's Steakhouse - great food and after bar, though don't expect them to be open until bar close.

I've stayed here a couple times during visits to Princeton, and would stay here again.

The owners of Acorn Ridge Motel enjoy the hard work of running thier own business. It is worth every dollar for the stay. We have been staying here during Oshkosh for over ten years and it will always be our choice, the rooms are always very clean and have been updated over the years since it was purchased by the new owners. Beds are comfortable and you have all the normal hotel extras. Wonderful quite location and very hospitalible owners. Thanks for the wonderful memories Eric and Linda see you next year.

This hotel is by no means worth the money they are charging. Very nice couple runs the place but the hotel needs some serious updating. It has not changed in over 7 years from the last time we stayed and before that probably another 30! And that inclused the bed's that are rock hard boards! Slept a bit the first night thanks to a few cocktails but the 2nd night none of the 4 ladies got a wink of sleep oh wait....except for the one that brought her own air mattress! Which bring me to another point! We paid for a room with 2 queen beds which traditionaly a queen bed sleeps 2 but had to pay an extra $20 a night because we had 4 ladies! What a rip off! We will never stay here again! $140 a night for 4 to stay in a room that is listed as $89 is just not worth it!

Room Tip: If you want sleep on a comfortable bed stay away from the acorn! If you like a firm/hard mattress t...

I stayed here for two months in the early summer on business. The motel is located in a rural area close to Green Lake. The sunsets were beautiful! The owners are great people who would do anything for their customers. The rooms are clean and have microwaves, fridges, and coffee makers. There is an on-site grill and picnic table area to enjoy the outdoors. The best part about this motel is the service. I highly recommend staying at the Acorn Ridge Motel!
