Awesome location, you dont feel like you're at a hotel with the surroundings. I go there for work and have stayed at this location for the past 4 years and have been satisfied. We will continue to use this location for future stays.

I wish we could have stayed here longer but we realized this BW was 1 hour 15 minutes from the western entrance of Yosemite Park where Yosemite Valley Visitor Center and viewing of much of the park is. However, if you are going to Mariposa Grove and the steam train it is a good place to stay.

This was my initial reaction upon opening the door to the room. This is my 4th trip to Yosemite (in 2 years!) and I haven't stayed in the same place twice. If you read my previous review, you would see that I was less than impressed with the Tenaya. There are a few miles difference in distance and a huge... More

We booked well in advance knowing how crowded the area can get. Had room 235-- quiet, clean and convenient. Friendly, efficient staff in the hotel, restaurant and bar. Food is average + and reasonable for a tourist area. Would stay again.

I didn't know where to stay on my trip to Yosemite, but I trust Best Western and the price was very reasonable. The room was a bargain, and the hotel is excellent. If you need a place to stay while visiting Yosemite, this is it. It's about 12 miles from the park's south entrance. The front desk staff even helped... More

Very Nice Place! Clean and close to Bass Lake which was beautiful, where we attended a wedding. Close to the Yosemite Gateway. They also had a restaurant at the location that had an awesome breakfast.

We left towels on the floor to be changed and the same dirt that was on them was on the " new " folded ones leading me to believe that she just folded and returned to the towel bar. Rooms are very old.

Our stay at this hotel was beyond excellent. Our room was much bigger than expected and beyond clean. The staff were all lovely and friendly and the staff in the restaurant were absolutely brilliant. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and we will most definitely be staying again next time we are in the States.

This was the third night of our road trip and the only one that wasn't at a La Quinta. This Best Western just happens to be dog friendly at no extra charge (least expensive place we stayed in fact). In addition, Oakhurst is conveniently close to Yosemite National Park and our best choice considering I wanted to catch the sunset... More

This is an excellent choice to spend the night if you are going to Yosemite. Everything about our stay was top of the line. The bar was lovely with bartenders that make a great drink and the restaurant has a nice selection of well prepared food. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Highly... More
