“This hotel is perfectly fine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Our travel agency booked all the hotels for our trip through West USA. I read reviews of this hotel and was prepared for the worst when checking in. But there was absolutely nothing wrong with this hotel. The things that I find most important was there; clean, warm water, fast wifi, comfy bed.
The girls at the front desk were very pleasant. The breakfast was simple, but I'm glad it was included. Most hotels didn't offer a complimentary breakfast.
So a good price and hotel for your stay in Yosemite.

Stayed here for 4 nights while visiting Yosmite National Park. Before booking here you should know that the hotel is approximately 40minutes drive to the South Entrance of Yosemite. Once at the entrance, be prepared to drive for another 40mins to the Yosmite Valley and Visitor Centre. If you cant bear the driving, I would not suggest staying here on anywhere in Oakhurst, rather you should stay in the hotels within the park but be prepared to pay a lot more. That said, if you hav never been to YNP before, the daily drive provdes beautiful views and scenery and gives you a chance to spot for bears (we saw one on the driv in) The rooms are fairly clean if dated and could do with a few licks of paint. The rooms have N iron, microwave and decent sized fridge. The beds were comfortable if slightly on the firm side. But the bedding was very warm and comfortable. One of the lams in the room did not have a bulb but there was enough other lighting to make up for it. The bathroom is a nice size and shampoo, body lotion and conditioner are provided and replenished daily. Free wifi is provided but unless you have a room next to or near the reception, you will not benefit from it at all as the signal completely cuts off around 100 yards from the reception area. The local area is safe but very quiet, Oakhurst is a small quiet town! However there is a Raleys supermarket, Macdonalds and many other food establishments and amenities fairly nearby and within walking distance. The hotel is located on the edge of the town and is the last building before the highway. Noise wasnt an issue and the breakfast was decent; fresh waffles on request, cereals, toast and jams, juics and tea and coffee (although hot tea and coffee may need to be requested if the hot water has cooled down) the staff are friendly and helpful and free parking is provided. Good value, but only stay here if you are looking to sleep and be out all day. If you want a hotel to spend time during the day, Id stay somewher else.

Check in was fast, service was good. The receptionist was friendly and chatty. The room was surprisingly clean and comfortable, I only stayed for one night, and while there was nothing exceptional about this hotel it was better than I was hoping. I would definitely recommend it.

We are not fond of this chain of hotels but it was the best of this chain. Comfortable beds and very clean. It was close to Yosemite, unless you wanted to stay in the park itself. There were several nearby resturants and they provided a pleasant breakfast.

stayed here towards the end of July to go to Yosemite. This was a weekend and the only place with vacancies. Several concerns; Ice Machine is the old fashioned kind you reach in and grab the scooper (often buried by ice) UGH! I have seen this in restaurant kitchens but not where public has access to insert grimy/dirty hands and no sneeze guard or bug catcher present. Exterior doors ent/exits stay propped open all day and into the evening closing at 10PM if remembered but... Room door would not close without a strong shove due to problem with floor at entry way. Issues with TV remotes, after 3 different ones, we gave up as the phone wasn't working in room either. This place could use some TLC and attention in the maintenance of property. Other reveiwers right on regarding carpet. Just can't get over the ice issue, unsanitary, we bought bagged ice at the store instead.

Room Tip: Buy your own ice!!! Don't chance it!!!!!

The hotel is very clean, new and comfortable. It has all the necessary amenities. The WiFi worked very well and breakfast was generous and good. The location is about as close to Yosemite as you can get, except for the hotels inside the park.

We were apprehensive to stay here due to some negative reviews, but the avalablity. so close to Yosemite and the price were attractive. I called the manager, Desiree Lee, who reassured me and also gave me some wonderful enthusastic ideas regarding Yosemite. I trusted Desiree and was overwhelmed by the lovely room she booked for us and impressed with how nice, clean and well run this bargain is. The young woman, Stephanie, who checked us in was friendly and efficient despite a load of folks checking in at the same time. I could not have been more pleased!
