Completely different from what i see in their website and what i really see. Too far from Yosemite valley (may be it took me 2 hrs to reach Yosemite valley), and not a clean place, the carpets and further looks very old. Will not recommend to my friends. If you are on the way to Yosemite and just want to...

i just had an awesome stay at this hotel while visiting Yosemite Park for the first time. My room was super spacious. I was traveling alone but I could have easily fit 2-3 more adults in the room comfortably, and everyone on the hotel staff were super friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The hotel was clean, the lobby was nice and...

First impression was this was one of the better hotels in Oakhurst, CA although there isn't much to choose from considering the former Ramada now called America's Best Value Inn or the Best Western are the alternatives. So in comparison to the other properties, I gave it Very Good rating. I have stayed at all three places while visiting relatives...

Large and spacious room with excellent bed. Lobby has a welcoming feel to it. Although we checked in late (11:30 p.m.) the night receptionist was pleasant and cheerful. She gave some wonderful suggestions in regards to visiting Yosemite. Location of hotel and parking was convenient. Denny's located close by. Not much variety in hotel's breakfast and eating tables are located...

We stayed here as part of our honeymoon road trip. We actually met the owner on a whale watching trip in Monterey and he suggested we stayed here when we were near Yosemite, so we looked it up and it seemed nice. We had originally booked 3 nights however had asked to change this to 2 nights after hearing the...

We were very happy with this hotel when we went to Yosemite in September. The staff was great, and gave helpful information on the park and area. Our room was very spacious, clean,updated and great beds. We had a wet bar in the room. Lots of space to unwind and relax. It was a winding drive to the South gate...

Had booked for two nights but then shortened the stay to one night, as Yosemite National Park had been closed down due to the federal funding and budget debacle. The hotel had many cancellations due to the park closure and this is not a reflection on the hotel, which was lovely and we would have stayed for a few more...
