The staff was friendly and welcoming on check-in, and very helpful with dining recommendations. Our room was clean and bright. The pool and surrounding area was also immaculate. Would definitely recommend as a great family hotel. Only about 15 minutes from Yosemite gate.

We booked this place because it could accomodate our family of 5, but when checking in we were surprised to find out that in addition to 10$/night for the 5th person thay charge 16$ for the extra bed for that person. Overall the room and location were good. Breakfast was the regular horrible continental stuff. The only reason to stay...

Big rooms with everything even a fridge, also a sauna, jacuzzi, and pool. And about 16 miles away from Yosemite Park! Big LCD tv, and many places to go out and eat with the entire family. I will come again.

Arrived early around 3pm and was allowed to check in before 4 pm but we had travelled from Las Vegas to Oakhurst for 8 hours. Checked in and decided to go to the pool. The sun disappears around 1630 and there are no sun loungers, but there are tables, chairs and umbrellas. Towels are provided at reception and then you...

This hotel was good for our family of 5. It was clean and the free breakfasts were great! The staff was very helpful in changing a booking issue and helping us out. The location of the hotel and the size of the town was great, but travelers to Yosemite be warned: The road to and from Yosemite Valley is VERY...

Beautiful hotel, 15 minutes to Yosemite National Park by car, swimming pool and hot tub, very good breakfast, big bedrooms with fridge, TV, high-speed Wi-fi. Only bad point : they take 100$ when you arrive and give it back to you when you leave as a security but with the printcard they could take money only if they need. It...

The wifi service is lack of signal strength and speed.The bed is too soft, but the room size is good. The breakfast room is small, and the food is ok. The hotel is in a good location - in a nice small town with some restaurants and stores.

The hotel room seemed like it had not been updated since the 80s. The room was okay, but I was disappointed because the pictures make it look like it would be higher quality than it is. One example is that the bathroom was wallpapered in dingy light blue wallpaper that looked like it had been there for a couple decades....
