My family stayed in several rooms at Oak Park last winter, when we were in Waynesville for a funeral, a very difficult time for us. Owners and staff did everything they could to make our stay easier. They left keys for late-arriving family members and on the day of the service, allowed us to come back late in the evening, long past usual checkout time, to change clothes before traveling home.
Aside from the fact that the owners and staff were so kind to us, we also loved a lot of things about the motel itself. Rooms were spacious and charming, and very clean. In spite of the fact that this is a wonderfully 'vintage' place, there was no 'old building smell' that I've found in other older lodging. And, the setting is beautiful, quiet and surrounded by lovely old trees and native shrubbery. It's an easy walk down Main Street to interesting shops and good restaurants, as well as the popular MAST General Store.
By the way, Oak Park offers wireless internet service for guests, which is an essential amenity for many of us.
While at Oak Park, don't miss going to Clyde's Restaurant for breakfast. In my opinion, Clyde's is the last, greatest, authentic diner in the region. To get there, turn right out of Oak Park's drive. Clyde's is about 1/2 mile from Oak Park, on the left, in the former town of Hazelwood, which is now part of Waynesville proper.
OK, I guess you can tell that I highly recommend the place? So much so, that I'm planning a week's vacation there next month, with my sister. We'll read, shop the downtown shops and the old Barber's Orchard Antique Mall (not far out of town - ask anyone for the simple directions), walk a lot, maybe drive the Blue Ridge one day, and just settle in to this nice old motel, which could easily begin to feel like home.

My three sisters and I stayed here for a long weekend to celebrate my 60th birthday in October 2004. We were all delighted with the comfort, amenities, the great front porch to laze away time and the closeness to downtown. What a find!

We love Waynesville especially during their Music Street Festivals. A very short walk from the motel to the main street makes this the best motel in the area to stay. It isn't fancy, but it is clean and comfortable. Priced right. We enjoy the locally owned motels when we travel. Staff was very friendly.

This is a Mom &Pop motel, not an Inn. Great location, walking distance to downtown. Parking is just outside the door. The owners were very pleasant. If you want to spend a night and not a fortune, this is the place for Waynesville.

My car brokedown near Waynesville and I was lucky enough to stumble upon the Oak Park Inn. It's a charming little early 50s motel with rocking chairs in front of each room. It's also within easy walking distance of all the shopping and dining in the historic downtown. The owners Rick and Carolyn could not have been nicer. They gave me a ride to get a rental truck and even helped me hook up my car - you won't get that kind of service at a chain motel by the highway. Next time I'm in town I will definitely check in.

We stayed for two nights. We were greeted by owner and she was very nice. Older family run hotel, we like these types of places where you can pull up and park right outside your room, the hosts are friendly and the place is comfortable. Great location, lots of good places to eat within walking distance. We at at Bogarts ( great sweet potato fries), Nicos (great breakfast sandwiches), and Tipping Point Tavern (best quesadilla ever!!). Hotel owners are very welcoming and friendly. We sat and chatted on the porch in the middle of the property. Motorcycle friendly as well! Only thing that would have been nice is shampoo, conditioner, and a hair dryer in the bathroom. Would definitely stay again!

We have stayed at the Oak Park Inn, Waynesville, more than ten times. It is an old country inn which has been totally renovated. The rooms are reasonably priced and well equipped. The owners and staff are friendly, down to earth people. The inn is family owned and operated and the owners are on site daily. The inn is centrally located in downtown Waynesville, walking distance to all the shops and restaurants along the brick sidewalks of main street. Would not think of staying anywhere else in the area.
