“no complaints”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

The hotel is not new but the room are spacious and clean, cozy. The hole property is very pleasant, the wifi works well and the restaurant serves a nice breakfast. I have no complaints about the hotel or of the staying, also well located. The hotel reception is an atraction by itself.

Room Tip: I got a room close to the indoor pool, since was cold, that was useful.

Very clean rooms. Well kept. Good eats nearby. A little bit of a drive to Yosemite but plenty to see between the Inn and Yosemite. Will go back next May. I will be with 12 other people next time.

Plenty of stores and a very good grocery store on the corner as you come into town.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the road are still pretty quiet.

This motel feels a bit old but is still clean and acceptable for spending the night. We used it as a base in and out of Yosemite in early summer for 3 nights and it was good for that purpose as we spent very little time in the room. Checkin/out was simple and quick. The room we had was on a lower level than the carpark which meant lugging bags done stairs. Room decor is hand painted scenery that works for some I guess. But it was clean and quiet.
Pool area looked ok but was too cold for swimming anyway.
Other advantage is that Oakhurst has plenty of food and fuel outlets.
We enjoyed the drive in and out of the park as well.

Room Tip: top level near carpark

The rooms are awful and smelly! The decoration is horrible, everything in dark colors and few lights on the room. It looks like I'm in a dungeon!! I asked for a newer room, and the staff told me I'm already at the newest room! I would NEVER EVER indicate this hotel to anyone! Except for the rooms that are creepy, the staff is really friendly and helpful and the location is great.

The room was large, clean and spacious. It was good to have Coffee/tea provided for in the room. The breakfast had a good spread with both hot and cold servings. It was a bit of an effort getting our heavy suitcases up to the first floor as there wasn't a lift. I would definitely stay there again !!!

Room Tip: If you are travelling with heavy suitcases avoid rooms on the first floor

We chose this hotel because we like the BW Plus brands and it was so convenient to the Yosemite entrance. I do have to agree with a previous review about the rooms being somewhat dated, but the bed and bath room in our room was so large that we can overlook the somewhat dated furnishings. The grounds are beautiful and that makes it easy to overlook a thing or two. There are a couple of things that I would suggest you improve. Please put more than 2 towels in each room. Women, especially those of us with long(er) hair, need 2 towels just for ourselves. Please mount the flat screen TV to the wall. Having it lower than the end of the bed makes viewing difficult if you're laying in bed, which you will be. I had to look around and over the hubbys feet. I hate the things, but you need some speed bumps. Twice we had a speeding car come flying by as we walked to and from the restaurant. The restaurant will be your death. We ate dinner after we arrived. The food was decent but there was only one waitress who doubled as the bartender. That woman ran the whole time and we have no complaints about her service, but clearly you needed more staff. The hostess, did nothing since most came into the lounge and sat themselves. Dump the hostess, get another waitress. The next morning the buffet was disgusting. It took forever to get a table since the girl running the register and checking the buffet tickets was too busy making coffee to get the line moving. We finally just walked by and found a table. There was little on the buffet that was hot and actually edible. You were out of plates, bowls, silverware, juice cups and coffee cups all at the same time. Hard to serve yourself at a buffet when there's nothing to put it on. My husband took one look at the buffet and decided to order from the menu. He brought eggs over easy that were so raw that the clear slime was covering the yolks so they had to be sent back since we don't want to take a chance of him getting sick from eating raw eggs. Although one table had a girl bringing them coffee, no one else was brought coffee. We overheard the girl saying that there are no waitresses at breakfast, just the young girls who bus tables and get things here and there as requested. How do you order from a menu if you don't have waiters/waitresses? We'd come back to the hotel, but as we told the desk clerk during checkout, we'd avoid the restaurant like the plague unless we see some serious changes and that restaurant will deter alot of folks from coming back.

Room Tip: Be mindful of the fact that there are two levels to each block of rooms and no elevators.
