What Our Guests are Saying
The Best of the Best—Reviewed October 8, 2017
"I can't say enough about WestGate Lodging. From the time you arrive you are treated like family. Gary and Cindy (the Property Managers) go above and beyond to make sure you are enjoying your stay. The maintenance man (Mr. Mike) is right there night or day when you have a maintenance issue. And housekeeping always makes sure you are happy with the services they provide. The grounds are beautiful, especially the courtyard. You will always run into Gary or Cindy walking the property and they will take time to sit and chat with you. You can tell they love this place. They treat this place like they own it. I have never stayed anywhere else where I felt so welcome. I can't wait until my next visit to Oak Ridge so I can stay at WestGate Lodging again. Its like a home away from home."
Hurricane Irma—Reviewed October 17, 2017
"My family and friends live in Jupiter FL and we were in a mandatory evacuation zone for Hurricane Irma 9/2017. We loaded up 5 cars with 13 adults, 5 children, 1 infant and 4 pets and headed north towards Georgia. There were no hotels available anywhere! So.... I called my friend who owns the Westgate Lodge in Oakridge TN to see if there were 5 rooms available. They only had 2 rooms available so we booked them and headed for TN. By the time we arrived (19+ hours later OUCH), Westgate was able to get us all 5 rooms! The property managers personally stopped by to be sure we had everything we needed. We ended up staying 1 week and made the best out of the last moment trip. The children swam in the pool, fished in the creek behind the buildings, hiked on the trails across the street! The cleaning staff was great, and the property is well maintained. And it gets BETTER! When we went into the office to check out, the property managers asked us to sign some FEMA forms and that the cost of the stay would be paid for by FEMA. Westgate Lodge saved our family and we will be forever grateful for all they did! Home away from home!"
Great Place for an Extended Stay! Highly Recommend!—Reviewed December 18, 2016
"I stayed at Westgate Lodging for two summers, from June to September 2015 and May to August 2016. Both times, my one-bedroom apartment (unit 101G) was in immaculate condition. The staff, both managers and housekeeping, were extremely friendly and made me right at home. The courtyard and grounds are well maintained and landscaped with an attractive outdoor pool area. You cannot beat the price if you think about that pretty much everything is included like cable, phone, internet/wifi, laundry facilities, furniture, housekeeping and more. This was one of the main reasons for me to choose this place since I temporarily moved to Oak Ridge from Germany for two summer internships. Gary and Cindy were always very helpful. I would stay there again any time. Thank you for two great summers so far away from home."
