I do not make a habit of writing reviews but on my recent trip to Deep Creek Lake I stayed here and was shocked to see just how nice these rooms are. On checkout I asked about the rooms and I learned that just this year all the rooms had been completely renovated. From carpet to bedding to pictures, everything is new!! There is also a family restaurant on site that is very nice as well. I will definitely stay here in the future!!

My extended family stays here in part because of the restaurant. Breakfast served all day, and they have the best omelets I've ever had. My personal favorite is the western omelet!! I do not know much about the motel, but given my family has stayed here for the past 20+ years it must be a pretty decent place.

While passing through the Oakland area on our annual summer antiquing trip our car died. The tow truck driver took us to the Oak-Mar Motel where we rented a room for the night. Unfortunately, the parts needed for our car was going to take a day to arrive. The owner of the motel kindly offered us a late checkout in hopes that the parts would arrive and be installed to get us on our way. As it turned out we did have to spend 2 nights at Oak-Mar. The entire staff was just wonderful. We were stranded in an area where we knew no one yet the owner and staff made us feel like family. My husband and I could not possibly be more happy with the service we were given.

Our family stays here every August for our family reunion. The staff is just wonderful. Rooms have everything we need, flat screen TV, microwave, small fridge, free wireless, plenty of parking. There are 2 floors to the motel. My aunt can no longer make it up the steps so she always asks for a ground floor room. There is a very nice family style restaurant as well.

Stopped by this motel while traveling north, sightseeing, along 219! Ask the owner about Deep Creek Lake, he answered my questions then suggested I see Swallow Falls State Park. What a beautiful park. I do a lot of traveling and I have yet to come across anyone more informed of their area than this owner. The rooms were clean and comfortable, very nice family restaurant, Wendy's Towne Restaurant, on site.

Friendly staff, very helpful owner, comfortable rooms. When staying here 2 weeks ago I did check other area motels. My room here was 56.00, a room at the Comfort Inn was 144.00, Silver Tree Suites 279.00. Having read a couple other reviews people need to be realistic, if you're wanting a comfortable room, then this is your place. If you need glitz and glamour, then no, this may not be your best bet. My room was very comfortable, free wifi, small fridge and microwave, owner who took several minutes giving me directions to 2 different state parks, I honestly have no idea what more one could ask for. I will definitely stay here the next time I need to come to Oakland!!!

This motel was a horrible choice. I made reservation by phone relying on a couple of positive reviews found on the internet. I am here to set this straight for anyone considering a stay at Oak Mar. My room had a strong odor resembling that of cat urine. The air conditioner did not work. The blanket on the bed was dirty and had cigarette burns. After lying down on the bed i began to itch. I suspect bed bugs as the cause for itching and the feeling of something crawling on me. I will sleep in my car before staying here another night. DO NOT STAY HERE.

My wife and I decided to take a last minute getaway to Deep Creek. After a quick search of lake area motels we decided to look further away from the lake. We came upon this motel and discovered their price was 1/2 to 1/3 the price of lake area motels. Since we weren't going to Deep Creek for the room we decided to take a gamble and we found our room to be clean and comfortable. For the price we are glad we make the 10 minute drive into Oakland to stay here. A great feature of this property is they have a family style restaurant on site and the breakfast was tasty and very reasonably priced. I would recommend this motel to my family and friends.

Several family members came to Oakland for my uncle's funeral. There were 4 rooms of us. We all felt this motel fit our needs nicely. It is less than 2 blocks from the funeral home, there is a family restaurant on site, front desk workers were friendly and gladly pointed out directions for us. The area appears safe, room was clean and fresh. Really cannot say anything bad about the place.

We came to Garrett Co to do some whitewater rafting. Given we did not know the area we were not sure where to stay. After searching online and finding rates at Deep Creek Lake from 150-295 a night we looked to find something off the lake. Finding a room for less than half those prices in Oakland at the Oak-Mar seemed to fit our bill. Our room was comfortable enough, having a family restaurant made the start of our day that much easier. I can't say Oak-Mar is fancy, but it sure was comfortable and for the savings in money we were very pleased. I would recommend this motel.

Was in town for an ice fishing tournament, asked for a recommendation where to stay, was told by a local fisherman to stay at Oak-Mar. Phoned the motel office, wasn't sure after hearing the room was 59.00 that it could be any good, however, I'm glad I did. Nice clean room, great breakfast before heading back out for another days fishing. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here 3 nights over the holidays. Great location, pretty nice room. 2 full sized beds, small fridge, micro, wireless internet, 54 a night for myself. I really like the family restaurant on site. Kind of makes it nice to go over, eat breakfast, then head out for the day. One night I had dinner and enjoyed a hot roast beef sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy for 5.95. That's my kind of eating. Yes, I would stay here again, plenty of parking, Jami checked me in, he seemed plenty competent and friendly.

I stayed at the Oak-Mar for the Savage Man events and found our room to be clean and fresh. I find it a big bonus to have a family style restaurant on site so I don't have to get back out on the road to find a good place to eat.

Our room had a small fridge, microwave, free wireless, plenty of parking, right on Rt 219 in Oakland.

I would definitely stay here again.

2 full size beds - family restaurant on site - owner made sure I had a place to park my boat - free wireless internet -
clean room - 59.00 a night - all within a few miles from the check-in point for the fishing trip I was in town for, not sure what else I could want.

Hello,
I had family from Ohio come to visit us and we took them to see Oakland & Deep Creek Lake,Md. We spent one night, on April 8th, at the Oak-Mar Motel. We had stayed there in 1996 and found it nice. However, on the 9th of April, we all got up and started our day by taking showers. But, the shower water in both rooms (26 & 27) was ice cold. We then went to the restaurant to register a complaint and get breakfast. We told the women that was at the desk what our complaints were and she then stated that they were new hot water heaters and that she called the plumber and there was nothing they could do. This is not taking care of the problem. She was rude and could have offered to contact the management or offered to refund our payments for one night. None of the 4 of us could take our showers due to the water being freezing cold. This is not giving your customers good service or compensating them for an inconvenience. I hope that this is investigated and that we receive a reply. My name is Ted Atkinson and I can be reached at 301-733-0554.
Thank you, Ted Atkinson

We were coming up for a weekend of skiing. We had called around to several of the lake hotels to get availability and pricing. When we called the Silvertree Suites at the lake, a nice woman answered the phone. After going through pricing with her, I explained that all we really needed was an economical place to sleep. She suggested we try the OakMar Motel. The Oakmar was everything we needed. Clean, comfortable and only an extra 10 minutes drive to the slopes as opposed to a lake hotel. I would definitely stay again and will call the Silvertree back and thank them for the recommendation!

Stayed here Jan 2009

My wife, two kids (3&5) stayed here for the night whilst skiing at Wisp and would certainly recommend the place as a great place to stay for up to three nights. Especially if you are planning on being out all day doing stuff.
The rooms all have two beds, are clean, have great showers whith heaps of hot water and high pressure. The cabel is basic but hey unless you are planning on staying awake alnight who cares?
I can't comment on the food as we ate out, but the menu looked fine. Service was good and it was GREAT value for money. My 4 start rating is based on value for money, clenliness and overall fit for purpose (we simply need a clean room with two beds and hot shower)

Over the past few years I have stayed at the Oak-Mar a number of times. I am told in its nearly 40 year history there have only been 2 owners, both of whom are lifelong residents. This is a very clean comfortable facility. Having an onsite family style restaurant is a real plus for us. I believe all rooms have 2 full size beds, some have micros/fridges, there is free wireless internet. I would definitely reccomend this motel.

I stayed at the Oak-Mar Motel & Restaurant recently and was pleasantly surprised by the value I received. Yes, it is a 30 year old facility, but it is well maintained, red brick exterior, not a lot to go wrong with that. Room was very clean and comfortable. I was lucky enough to have a small fridge and microwave, they have free wireless Internet. One very handy thing is the restaurant. They actually still peel potatoes and make real mashed potatoes, I thought that was a lost art. You can get breakfast, lunch or dinner 7 days a week. I was working at the local court and Oak-Mar is like 4 blocks from the court, across the street from the hospital, and right along US 219, about 7 miles from Deep Creek Lake. If you are ever in this area I really would recommend this facility.

I was going fishing up near Oakland (on the North Branch) and needed an inexpensive place to stay. I booked at the Oak-Mar based on the other review I read and was not disappointed. The room and bathroom were spotless, plenty of hot water (no flow restrictor on the showerhead), bed comfortable, TV worked, staff very friendly and accomodating - and it was very inexpensive.

Since I was fishing by myself, I asked the desk clerk to call the police if I was not back by 8 PM. He was happy to do this for me, took the info on where I would be and properly instructed the clerk for the next evening (he would not be on duty). When I returned, the clerk on duty was expecting me.

The clerk works until 10 PM. If you plan to arrive late, call ahead and they will tell you what room you will have and leave your key.

As such - I rate this very high - you will receive much more value than what you will pay.

PROS: clean, basic, quiet, easy to find, has restaurant, friendly staff
CONS: Older motel

The owner actually answered his own phone when I called to make reservations. I called during the slow season in February. Each room had cable, a small fridge, two double beds, and the restroom. The room was clean and well maintained.

PROS: Convient to everything in Oakland
CONS: Larger families may have to get two rooms

Message from Oak-Mar

The Oak-Mar Motel & Restaurant is located right in the heart of Oakland, MD. We are blocks from Garrett Memorial Hospital, banks, post office, circuit and district courts, and for those unfortunately coming to town for funerals we are blocks from both funeral homes.



We have an onsite family style restaurant that is open from 7AM to 8PM Monday through Saturday, and from 7AM to 2PM on Sundays. For breakfast we offer pancakes, omelets, french toast, sausage gravy over biscuits, and many other items. For lunch we are known for our burgers and hot roast beef w/mashed potatoes and gravy. For dinner we have various specials. We also have grilled sirloin patties, fish, ham, chicken and for lunch or dinner we have a number of salads including our very popular chef salad as well as grilled chicken salad, steak salad, breaded chicken salads as well as a house salad.



We are located 7 miles from Deep Creek Lake, 7 miles from Swallow Falls, 4 miles from Herrington Manor Park, approximately 10 miles from the Cranesville swamp, and 32 miles from Canaan Valley. Wisp Ski Resort is 13 miles north of our motel and is an easy 20 minute drive.



If you are coming to the Oakland area please give us a chance to earn your business. You can stay in Oakland and enjoy all the benefits of Deep Creek Lake for half the expense of lake area motels.



For additional questions or help feel free to email me at oaklandmotels@live.com. Thank you for your interest, Andrew Fike, owner.
