We were in Oakhurst for the night. The price was reasonable. The staff nice. We had a small balcony that overlooked a wooded area. Deer walked the grounds. We did not use the restaurant or the pool. Our room was in the back at the top of the hill. Parking was easy. Had a nice stay. Will stay here again.

We drove from Santa Monica to this Best Western and hit at least 2 outlet shopping centres in the middle of nowhere, and 1 casino just before Oakhurst. We had a room with 2 double beds, very spacious, with refrigerator and microwave. We overlooked a forested area (near the jacuzzi) and saw fawns and a skunk from time to time....

The setting and grounds are very inviting. Helpful staff, comfortable room. Sorry I couldn't stay longer. Very convenient to the south entrance of Yosemite . Big plus: 2 EV charging stations. Several staff asked me if the charger worked (it's new)

Rooms decent enough for the price we paid but could do with a good refurbishment. But in hindsight, I think I would have much preferred to have paid more and stayed a lot closer to Yosemite Valley as the drive in was over an hour.

Our family's favorite place to stay on the way to Yosemite. A great place to rest weary bones after a long day's drive. We sleep here and then drive the curvy roads into the park during the daylight. Staff is friendly. Accommodations are spacious and clean. We love the wooded grounds and the play area for the kid. It feels...

We stayed in a 2 bedroom family room. It was spacious and decent enough room. The location to Yosemite was great and oakhurst has all the restaurants/supermarkets you need too. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The only downside of the motel was the floors were dirty. We had a toddler and we let her crawl around and her...

5 of us stayed for 2 nights whilst visiting Yosemite. This was a great base and we would not hesitate to recommend the hotel - yes the decor is dated but the rooms are very spacious. We also ate at the restaurant for the 2 nights - the food was reasonable and very tasty and the Malbec was great for...

We only stayed for one night in the 4th of July, we arrived late afternoon and just had time to check in and get change before heading out again. The staff were efficient and very helpful, the room was massive if not a wee bit dated but it was clean so that's what matters. It looked like a nice place...

Heard a great deal about a Mexican restaurant, El...
