“Something A Little Different......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013 via mobile

Booked hotel whilst visiting Yosemite. Really quirky hotel, loads of character. Staff very friendly and food in restaurant is really good.

Room was very cute and clean.

Ranch is reported haunted and can feel very eerie. Not sure if I experienced something or that I was so conscience of it being haunted I dreamt it.........

Great location to reach Yosemite.

Stayed October 2013, traveled with friends

Whilst visiting Yosemite National Park, my wife and I wanted to stay somewhere a bit different to the hotels and motels we were staying in throughout the rest of our trip. With this in mid, the Sierra Sky Ranch was the perfect place for us to stay.

The Ranch has history and real atmosphere. Our room was very warm and cosy with real rustic charm.

Breakfast is included in the room rate, which was extremely welcome. The choice of pancakes or a cooked breakfast was perfect.

On our 2nd night in the ranch, we just relaxed in one of the sitting rooms with a glass of wine ($6 for the biggest glass of red ever!) and chilled out with the cats that live at the ranch.

All in all a really lovely stay.

Why just 4 stars? On arriving at the Ranch, we got a little bit lost, as although there is a big sign on the main road, there is nothing visible in the dark when you drive past. This left us feeling a bit lost and confused. Also, the Ranch feels like it would just benefit from a little bit of TLC, but was a lovely place to stay.

This hotel is ideally situated for Yosemite National Park. In September the evenings were getting cold, but a log fire was lit on each of our two evenings and the heating was turned on the second night. One of our rooms was superb, my own being musty-smelling and rather small, but the bed was very comfortable. The dining room and lounge are excellent, with a lovely, old-colonial atmosphere, beautifully furnished and well cared-for. In other, outside, areas neglect is obvious. Staff were very helpful, breakfast good and dinner was available even though we were late on our first night. Don't come here for a luxury stay, but you will have a convenient base for visiting Yosemite, and a good night's sleep.

Room Tip: There seemed to be a discrepancy in the quality of different rooms and you may want to try to ensure...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in August while visiting Yosemite. The lodge itself is beautiful, the rooms are lovely and the staff super friendly. We had dinner at the restaurant which was amazing (great ribs and good wine) but were disappointed with breakfast. Overall though, the bad breakfast didn't take anything away from the great stay we had. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Go into Oakhurst for breakfast

The lodge is located in an absolutely stunning location. The staff were very friendly both in the hotel and in the restaurant. They have a few cats that wonder about the lobby, that we felt added a bit of charm. The lobby area was lovely, very charming.
We had a family room in the bunk house and it was very basic accommodation. In my opinion the rooms really require updating.
The bedding was clean but the sheets were ripped in places. In our room there were a couple of strips missing from the vertical blinds which meant people could see into our room from outside.
The outside pool could also do with an update as the water was dirty. It was a real shame that the rooms were not up to standard as this place could be a gem as the location was stunning and the staff were so nice. Compared to other places we stayed on our trip around all of California this worked out as the most expensive room and the poorest standard!

My husband and I stayed last night at this hotel for a wedding. We had a slight problem booking a room and messages not being returned however the day of the wedding the hotel made arrangements to get us a room we would be comfortable in and discounted it down for us for all the trouble. During the wedding the hotel was wonderful with service we enjoyed a long conversation with the young waiter joe he was very pleasant and fun to talk to!! We truly enjoyed our stay

The three stay was absolutely excellent. The ambiance is perfect, the rooms cozy, comfy and inviting. The grounds are well maintained. The staff is beyond perfect and the food, while portions are huge, was divine. The smallest or largest request was seen to immediately. I would recommend this to anyone and will definitely stay again.
