Wonderfully surprised by this charming motel. Clean, new large well appointed room and bath. Must drive to town if you don’t want to eat at the motel, but breakfast and dinner are available. Only suggestion would be to provide washcloths.

Be careful what you pay, this establishment varies it prices from $150 right through to $400 for similar dates, I got caught for a 3 night stay and paid close to $1,200 without breakfast, just a rip off. Don’t book in advance. $150 is reasonably for what is on offer.

I wouldn't advice my traveller friends to go for this hotel for multiple reasons. Firstly Franz Josef has very limited activities and its a small town chosen majorly for its scenic beauty, the heli ride and a few hikes around. Oasis was far from town, like it was the first

We loved our three-night stay at this beautiful hotel, just a few minutes drive away from the town of Franz Josef Glacier. The rooms were spacious and the beds were extremely comfortable. Rodrigo at the front desk was amazingly helpful with travel tips and helping us to book

We adored staying at Franz Josef Oasis. It's unassuming from the outside, but the rooms were very spacious, sparkling clean, and well maintained. The most lovely couple serves as the host and hostess. They are extremely hard working and go above and beyond to make sure your stay

Yes - but please call in advance as the place is manned by only a handful of people. Early checkout is also possible - we left at 6 am and just left our key in the door of the room!

"Rooms looking towards the pond are especially nice"
"room 11 or on the back to the garden are quieter"
"Wheel chair friendly. One can park literally outside your room."
"Keep driving you will not be disappointed"
"units at the back are more quiet - since everyone has to pass the front units."
