“Dishonest Owner/ Bugs in the room”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

The town is wonderful unfortunately this hotel was awful. There were earwigs in our room. We asked for an extra pillow apparantly they do not have any. Also we had the same situation as others we were charged and quoted one price, and then behind the scenes the owner up charged the cost on our credit cards. A rather big "Bait and Switch"!!! We called and complained with no benefit! he should be put out of business.

Room Tip: Not worth the cost

You know that weird, unfortunate smell some old motels have. Well it's here as soon as you open the door to the lobby. The big issue for me was value. If you just need a place to sleep it's not horrible. But almost $200??? Not a fair value for the money. They're riding on their location near Yosemite.

Here's the bad: REALLY old furniture, mattresses that seem to be inverted under the bedspread (super old or just super cheap), a big black bug walking through the room, ants (in bathroom and a couple of dead ones in my bed), really loud water pipes. When people above us showered it sounded like an industrial water pump was in the ceiling. There were also some random black hairs in my bed sheets near the head of the bed. I don't even want to think anymore about that.

Having said all this I noticed a lot of hikers and day trippers from Yosemite. They have a terrific ice machine, friendly staff, they are pet friendly and I noticed laundry facilities which seemed to be used constantly.

I think next time I'll try to stay in Mariposa. Oakhurst was nothing to write home about.

Room Tip: I would recommend being upstairs because of the noise.

This inn is greatly located within 30 mins driving distance from the Yosemite South Gate. We got a room which was very big with two big queen beds. All the good stuffs about this hotel ends there. The carpets in the room was horribly bad beyond the tolerable levels of sanitary conditions. If you end up staying in this hotel, never walk bare footed. The sticky dirt from the carpet just sticks with the bottom of the foot forming a brownish/muddy layer. The bath-room looked shabby. Don't fall for the complementary breakfast. You will be better off not eating here - either buy something in the nearby Raleys' supermarket or go get something somewhere else in the town. Not worth for the ~$270 we paid for 2 nights. If you are a part of 3-4, you may look into Best Western or Yosemite South Gate Lodge or you may look into B&Bs if couples. I will NOT stay here if I go back and will NOT recommend to friends/anyone that are looking to have a good value/stay for the money.

Room Tip: We stayed in #147

Good value if on a budget. Staff was very friendly, but no uniforms or name tags. Free waffles was the highlight of the breakfast otherwise it was below average. Cleanliness of room could be better. All chair arms were very sticky. We had to wrap the TV remote in a tissue it was very sticky. Bed was comfortable. Just an OK stay.

Stayed one night after visiting Yosemite. Located at the far end of the small town, about 40 minutes from the Mariposa Grove of Sequoias.
Close to a couple of restaurants. Check in smooth, requested room at back away from highway which was accommodated.
Check in staff did not wear uniform which always gives a poor first impression.
Advised to use rear entrance off the car park to access our room, this door had a hand written note stating it was not locked but that guests had to ensure it was closed. Unsure whether it was locked at night but it was accessible to any one.
The internal corridor carpet had seen better days and was very worn.
The room was clean and the bed comfortable,but the bed cover has a hole in it.
Fridge, microwave and coffee maker were provided.
The continental breakfast was served in a small room, not large enough to accommodate a rush of guests. The quality of the food was on the poor side.
This hotel gave the overall impression of not having to try too hard as it is close to Yosemite. Next time I would consider other options in Oakhurst.
