Another great "Gold Country" Corvette Club trip, and stay at the Best Western in Sonora. We have stayed here many times over the years and it just seems to get better each time. Our room was quite large and included a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker, the furnishings were in great condition and the king size bed was firm but... More

This place is not the best looking place and was definitely too expensive for what you get. But it is very clean and the staff was very nice. The breakfast is pretty good too but it is at the restaurant in the corner. A warning, if you don't eat one of the "Included" breakfasts it is really expensive, even with... More

Our hotel was remodeled in 2010 and is being remodeled again this year. Although it is 25 years old (young), it is well-maintained by a caring team. We did not often get feedback for high prices, but we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. 95% of our guests choose the free hot served breakfast with 6 choices, and very... More

We stayed here on our way to Yosemite. It is a little out of the way, but a good price, good breakfast and clean rooms. Staff was very helpful. Had a nice quiet nights stay. I would make sure to get an interior room on the weekend since there is a bar nearby. The pool looked clean but we didn't... More

The staff at the hotel was wonderful, the room was good, modern, and comfortable. The hotel partners with the restaurant in the same parking lot, so the breakfast was a regular breakfast with fruit, orange juice, sausage, eggs, hashbrowns, and an an English Muffin. Great friendly staff at the hotel, and even though the breakfast was free, they treated you... More

There was not much about this hotel that we liked. We requested a quiet room when we booked this room far in advance. Then when we checked in we again requested a quiet room. What we were given was a room opening onto the parking lot, so we got to hear everyone coming and going all evening. This was about... More

Thank you for your constructive feedback. We are pleased that your enjoyed our complimentary served full hot breakfast options. We do not receive many comments about noise in this quiet hotel with a park-like setting, but apparently you had some concerns about your room placement; we honestly apologize for that. Finding any sort of cleanliness problem is far below our... More

After checking out of the Best Western Sonora, we visited Yosemite. We had no cell phone service. I became very ill and at 3:30 we called to cancel our reservations for Best Western Lake Tahoe. They billed us for the night even though we were only 30 minutes past the cancellation time. I feel this was not very considerate and... More

Important clarification! This was not a complaint about our hotel. We received 5 stars! The concerned guest used our hotel name to discuss a reservation problem at their next stay; a totally different hotel. Best Western has an effective guest service desk at 1 800 WESTERN; the team will respond to all inquiries. I suggest that this guest use that... More

The hotel is clean and the rooms are big and clean. Only the smell in the room, especially in the bathroom was disturbing. I tried to be as quick as possible in the bathroom due to the smell. The pool is very nice and the staff is very friendly. I just had a room on the ground floor and people... More

It is so unusual for guests to feel unsafe at our hotel; our family and friends stay with us and we like to treat the guests the same way. We are concerned for you, though. The Best Western PLUS Sonora Oaks Hotel has a great track record of safety and guest service; we are sorry that we did not know... More

Friendly and accommodating staff. Went out of their way to print us directions to Yosemite national park. Loved that the breakfast was at the restaurant, this gave many options for different meals with the continental breakfast discount.

The Hotel was clean. Location was good, near shopping centers in East Sonora. Staff very friendly and helpful. Good prices, includes full breakfast. Will probably stay there each year when we return to Sonora for Class Reunion for Sonora Union High School.

This is a great place to stay. The rooms are not extremely fancy, but clean, comfortable and a very nice location. Close to shopping, freeway and the Pine Tree restaurant made it easy to grab a bite.
