I wanted a hotel outside of Oakhurst to try and cut down on the drive time to Yosemite. The hotel was easy to find off the Hwy 41. The place was an old TB hospital and WW2 rehab facility back in the day. The grounds were well kept and the outside appearance was good. It has an onsite restaurant which...

It's an interesting place to stay. Very rustic. Not the cleanest hotel, but it still has a certain charm. This is a great place to stay with a group of friends because there is a lot of comfortable space to relax, but not much to do. I prefer to stay at hotels that pay more attention to detail, (for example,...

We stayed here for four nights as we were going to Yosemite in March and wanted a place close to the South gate as it was the only one open. If you like History this place has a ton of it. We stayed in the main building in room 3 and our room opened up to the veranda and the...

On arrival we were greeted by a friendly female member of staff and even though we arrived before check in time, we were given a tour around the property and given a run down of the history which we all found very interesting - particularly the different uses of the property over the years and that previous guests had included...

Excellent place for lodging near Mariposa Grove, just 30 min drive from south entrance to the park. Very nice surroundings, good restaurant, cosy interiors and - most importantly for larger groups - great lobby with a fireplace and a genuine grand piano!

Thank you for your review. Many of our guests do appreciate our location, just 10 miles from Yosemite's southern entrance. On a clear day, with little road traffic, you can find yourself in the park in less than 15 minutes. We are also happy that you enjoyed our main lobby. It's character comes from the fact that it is the...

I stayed for one night with my son after we had been to Yosemite for a few days. It is handily placed for visiting Glacier Point and Mariposa Grove. The room was great and our bathroom a real luxury.

Thank you for your review. We are happy that our location and atmosphere appealed to you. We often have guests enjoying the fire in our main lounge well past midnight.

We visited Sierra Sky Ranch after the whole day of travel from Berkeley, CA. It is a really charming place to stay and with a unique style.
