The hotel has a great location, room and customer service! It's near Yosemite national park and Oakhurst has different places to eat. The wifi didn't work at the bedroom, but we didn't go there to navigate on the Internet, so it wasn't a big problem. Actually, we think it was a plus to enjoy the trip and each other better.

This is mostly a two-star hotel...not new and basic, but adequate. The rooms are sizable, though oddly laid out (bathroom sink right next to front door). It's right on the highway, but set back far enough that noise isn't a huge issue. However, them claiming they provide internet access is bordering on criminal. It's slower than AOL in 1995. If...

Stayed for 2 nights whilst visiting Yosemite park, handily placed just over an hour drive away.Nice big room, well equipped with comfortable bed. Staff are friendly and helpful.Breakfast very poor. Awful bland powdery waffle mix, muffins, cereals, yoghurts with artificial additives, bread for toast. Where is the protein? Awful high carb artificial sugary food, not good enough. The toiletries are... More

We stayed here for one night in August 2015. It was about 30 minutes from the Yosemite south entrance. Clean and decent size rooms. WiFi is free but was slow. Bathroom was clean - though could use some updates. The staff was very friendly. Basic continental breakfast was included in the rate. There is a Denny's restaurant right across the... More

Relatively large hotel, with very friendly front desk staff, who did everything possible to help us. Rooms are large and clean, though somewhat out-dated in terms of styling - we had no problem with this. Breakfast was basic but more than enough to power us up for a day hiking in Yosemite. Oakhurst has a number of good restaurants within... More

Good location for exploring Yesomite. The decoration is old fashioned but seems fitting with this area. We had a king size bed with a sofa bed for our family of 4. The sofa bed wasn't hugely comfortable but the room was nice and clean. The room was nice and big and would have been better with a couple of queen... More

Great location for the southern entrance of Yosemite. The hotel was quiet, clean, and the room very large. It had a small kitchenette. The laundry room was clean and bright. It was very convenient to markets and restaurants. The staff was welcoming and helpful with directions. The breakfast was great. We would stay here again.

We stayed for two nights while visiting Yosemite. It was very convenient for the park, clean and good inclusive breakfasts. Air Con was noisy and the rooms were a little dated but it was reasonable value for the location. The carpets in the communal areas (landings) were very worn. There was a Dennys in the car park which served quick... More

we stayed here on our recent trip to Yosemite. This hotel is located about 1 hour away from the Waimea entrance to the park. Rooms were clean; staff were courteous and helpful; plenty of resturants nearby.

We spent two days in Yosemite and stayed in this well equipped lodge. Very comfortable with an eatable breakfast included but so far from the park. It takes more than an hour to get to Yosemite village and to the real attractions of the park..... If I had known in advance I wouldn't have booked the night there!!!
