It would be a comfortable accommodation not far from the south entrance of the national park if the linen were all fresh and clean. Mind it, the hotel could do with a little refurbishment and has not great facilities for breakfast ( at least it was so in winter 2012) but on the other side it is not expensive ,and... More

We stayed here the day after Christmas because we wanted to show the kids what Yosemite looked like blanketed in snow. We were surprised that a place this nice allowed pets. We had our one year old yellow lab, who at that point still made occasional mistakes indoors. I don't know if they still allow pets, but It was such... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. It's about 25 minutes from Yosemite south entrance and Mariposa Grove. The hotel is fine; if a little dated, but the air-con was really noisy. There's a fridge in the room which is good for when you're taking sandwiches into Yosemite.

We chose this motel because of it's proximity to the south entrance to Yosemite and we stayed there 2 nights. The room itself was comfortable and clean. They do need, however, extra plug ins by the beds to accommodate the necessary electronic chargers and CPAP machines that people travel with these days. They had a guest laundry and an inside...

We stayed at the Oakhurst Best Western for 2 nights in August as we passed through Yosemite onto Death Valley and then Vegas. Our room was in the 300's so it was right at the top of a hill, which was good as it was quiet, but a bit of a hike. The room itself was clean and big, we... More

Our family of 5 spent 2 nights in a family suite that consisted of a front room with a queen bed, bathroom, and then a back room that had two more queen beds and a small table with a couple of chairs. The hotel is a little dated but it was absolutely perfect for our needs. Everyone had a bed... More

This hotel is quite conveniently located for Yosemite, although there is a bit of a drive to get there, it is more affordable than accommodation a lot closer to the park. Having said that it was the most expensive room we stayed in on our holiday and the room itself was probably the worst. When we arrived we found black... More

Had a very neat two-king bed room at the Best Western Plus. The room included a kitchenette with sink, microwave and refrigerator. The was in their recently added section/wing. The staff and service were great. There were several deer that came almost to the front door, a plus if you like to see some wild life. The hotel is situated... More

We enjoyed our stay and accomodations very much. The restaurant for dinner was excellent!!! The staff were friendly and the setting is beautiful. What more can we say? We most likely would return again unless we went to a bed and breakfast instead.

Stayed here 2 nights (drove in late afternoon on the first day) and took a tour of Yosemite. We were way up the hill in one of the "family" rooms, which I really liked. It wasn't much more than the other standard rooms, and gave us a lot of space and separate sleeping quarters. The hotel checkin was friendly and... More
