We were very impressed with our 2 bedroom suite with full kitchen. The hotel was very clean. The pool area was very nice. I was pleased with the comfortable temperature of the indoor pool. The staff was very pleasant. The doorman went out of his way to be courteous.

Wonderful resort with everything we needed for a long weekend. After traveling over 10 hours on a place, this place was great - full holiday apartment, kitchen, laundry, pool, bar, restaurant - all contained in one place!

Went for dancing weekend. Placed several things going on. Check in and check out was very fast. Very quiet room. Will get kitchen room next time. Very busy so did not get to try everything. Have been here 5 or 6 times before. Nice stay!

My wife and I stayed at the Osthoof for two nights on a recent weekend. We stayed in one of the Woodland view suites. The view of the condos across the street wasn't particularly scenic, but we don't spend time in a hotel room viewing out the window. The suite is very spacious with a private balcony with access from...

Stayed here overnight for a wedding, the place is absolutely beautiful, let me start by saying that. The staff is extraordinary, unlike any hotel I've ever been to. The check-in was very easy and they gave us a map of the grounds. The rooms were fantastic! The only reason I didn't give this a 5-star was because our bed was...

We loved this resort. I was there for a business conference, but brought my husband and 3 year old son also. It was very peaceful and clean, with beautiful grounds. We were there during the winter, so I would love to go back in the spring or summer, as I am positive that it would be amazing during that time.

Our first visit to The Osthoff was filled with disappointments in summer. Dirty, loud, no quiet areas for adults at any pool, heating issues. Do to the concern of the director of the Osthoff when I voiced my concerns in a survey we were invited to revisit the resort. We came back in Fall after the craziness of the summer...

Stayed here for the second year in a row now, & it just keeps getting better. Our server/bartender at Otto's couldn't have been sweeter, & the room is exquisite as always! I can't wait to come here again!

We've used the Osthoff for corporate weekend retreats for almost a decade. The group rates are great, communications with staff are amazing, and the venue itself is welcoming and well kept up. These are guestrooms that are owned and rented out, combined in the same building with two restaurants, a spa, a great cooking classroom, and first class service. We...
