Very Pleased with our stay. We booked last minute on Priceline.com and did not know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised! The Owners left the light on for us and stayed in constant contact by phone or text. The Decor was beautiful, the bed was comfy, the room was spotless. Highly recommend

We stayed in the queen suite which was recently renovated and is really nice. Bed was very comfortable and room extra clean. Owner was very accommodating for our unusual request. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend. Also within walking distance of several restaurants.

After reading reviews on tripadvisor I decided to book our stay at the Oakland Motel. I was a little apprehensive because we usually stay with the larger chains. I asked to see the room first and Brent, the owner didn't hesitate to accomodate my request. He did say while he was opening the door that I would not find a cleaner room and he was right. I am so glad we stayed here, it is a wonderful little inn. Spotlessly clean and absolutely nothing that I could have asked for or improved upon. We asked for restaurant recommendations and he was very helpful in helping us choose where we went for dinner. The El Canelo was 1/2 mile away and a very good dinner. Don't hesitate to book this inn, you will be glad you did! Thank you Brent.

There are several advantages of staying in a family owned motel, compared to a chain like Days Inn. To start with, at the Oakland Motel, the rooms have been customized—no similar cookie-cutter appearance to each room. Our room, for example, had a fishing motif. One of the other rooms even has a baby grand piano. Another advantage is personal attention. The owner, Brent, stopped by several times during our stay to see how we were doing, and to ask if we needed anything. Our room was a decent size, and had a king size bed, which was comfortable. With a few exceptions, the room was furnished pretty well. We had a large credenza which provided closet and dresser space, along with a 32” LCD TV. The room had a small frig, along with a microwave. There were plenty of coffee and tea supplies, along with a roll of paper towels. There were a few small end tables, which had little fishing ‘doo-dads’ on them. While they added to the ambiance of the room, having the space on these end tables for our stuff would have been helpful. Only one chair was provided, and a second chair would have helped. Providing a box of tissues would have been beneficial, too. I do want to spend a moment and talk about the rug. The Oakland Motel did a great job of keeping the room, including the carpet, clean. In comparison, my wife and I had been in a luxury entry-level hotel in Ocean City back in late June. We wore our socks there while walking around the room, and they were extremely dirty each day. We didn’t see anything on our socks here, which shows how carefully the rooms are cleaned. Good job! While the sleeping/living area was pretty much up to date, I can’t say the same about the bathroom. It was clean, but in need of a facelift. There was little counter space, which could have been helped by having a shelf, and there was a good-sized crack in the floor. Adding a hook to the back of the bathroom door would have helped. The prices were very reasonable too, so I felt the Oakland Motel represents a good value. The motel checks most of the right boxes, so if you’re going to visit the Oakland or Deep Creek Lake area, you should consider staying here.

My family had a last minute change in our travel plans and needed a place to stay. This little gem of a motel came up in our search and we were soooo happy we were able to stay here. Since we are a family of 4, I rented two double rooms (on more weird sleeping configurations with teenagers) on Bookings. Let's start with my only concerns as a city dweller: door locks. Specifically, deadbolts. As a security conscientious parents, I like to be able to lock our doors to feel safe and secure. Both rooms had keyed locks in the door knob (for your room key) and deadbolt locks. However, both of the deadbolt's locking tumblers were removed and each of the door jambs were in need of some repair. Now, I can imagine how it came to be and even understand why it still is, but it is a little disconcerting to see the damage. Of course, we were able to get over it, as we have stayed in accommodations all over the world that had similar 'door situations'. Why is my rating a Very Good?? I think the accommodations, services, staff, and locations were all very good. The hotel staff tries to support your every desire. I reserved two doubles on Bookings, but wanted a single bed for my wife and I. At check-in, I was moved to a King Room. I was happy for the change, but I was also impressed that my request was remembered and honored some 5-days later and acted on. The check-in process was smooth and easy. The staff is full of helpful information and we were given a local map, magazines and information about the attractions. Our rooms were very clean, comfortable and tidy. The themes were a great touch. My kids thought they had the better room. The small window AC units maintained what I thought was refrigerator cold room temps. Especially at night, we turned our to the less cool setting. There is a small refrigerator, coffee maker and microwave in the rooms with enough counter space to easily prepare meals. We used them for lunch. Besides the doors, the rooms showed no wear and tear. The carpets are clean, everything work. The beds are supper comfortable and when you close the curtains, the rooms are blackout dark at night. I thought the rooms were recently refurbished, because everything was well appointed. The bathrooms were very clean. New windows and a brand new shower stall. The towels were plush and very absorbent. You can walk to downtown Oakland in just a couple of minutes and have easy access to shopping. The big box store is just down the road, but you can walk to at least 4 restaurants, the Sheetz gas station and the Sunoco/7-11 in another. We did spend a good deal of time on the lake. It was only a 10-15 minute drive to the Uno's Pizza restaurant (if you know where that is located).
