4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here while visiting Yosemite. The two young ladies at the front desk were very welcoming and friendly, even though they were swamped. Room was clean, comfortable, quiet, and blessedly cool after coming in from the 100 degree heat. There is a restaurant on the premises if you don't want to drive elsewhere. They give you a slip for a... More

We stayed here for leisure and had a nice king bed suite which enabled us to spread out a bit after travelling through other towns. Would definately recommend this hotel but the restaurant needs to improve the quality of some of the meals served. Salad old and steak tough but the waitress was very helpful though a complaint to the... More

The service at this hotel was fantastic! When we walked through the front doors, Staci greeted us with a smile and throughout our stay that smile never left. The manager, Kathy, was visible, helpful, and approachable. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. We will be visiting Sonora yearly and this is where we will be staying!

Stayed for one night for a conference. Traveled from the Bay area. The drive from the Bay area was beautiful. The room was average, but clean. We arrived somewhat late and did not take advantage of the amenities. However, the front desk staff person was very helpful in helping us to locate a restaurant that we would enjoy.

Hotel was quiet, clean, and had friendly staff. They had a managers reception in the evening where they served mini hotdogs, nachos with cheese, and an assortment of wine, beer, and soft drinks. On the hotel property there is a restaurant. You are given a voucher for a complimentary breakfast. You could choose from 3 options or take $5 off... More

Our location is right off Highway 108, on our own Exit “Hess Ave” from the West and “Phoenix Lake Road” from the East. We are so sorry that it was hard to find. Since we are located out of the noisy town, in a park-like setting, you have to travel up the road about 5 minutes. Feel free to call... More

The hotel was easy to find with GPS, and staff was pleasant. We had late check-in together with a lot of other families, so we had to wait in line for some time, beds were nice, and we had a nice stay, considering that we just spent the night before moving on!

The staff was very friendly, professional, kind, and hospitable. The free breakfast was for a meal at the adjoining restaurant; had a really tasty pecan waffle. The room was clean and included wifi. I had a pleasant stay.

Gross place - not near Yosemite !!! No good freeway access - breakfast is in an offsite restaurant which you get to visit with a "voucher" for breakfast. The lobby is shabby and uninviting - the entire place was a joke.
