My wife and I went to Yosemite for our Anniversary and stayed here. Oakhurst is a cozy little town in the hills just outside Yosemite. That in itself was a treat. This hotel was a lovely addition to our trip. First, the ambiance of the registration building is charming - cathedral ceiling decorated with both nostalgic relics from the early...

You don't have to leave, it is all right the landscaping makes you feel as if your in the forest already. Went to just get some well needed rest and relax and it was so worth it. The restuarant staff was excellent and so was the coffee. If your thinking of heading to Yosemite or just for a drive this...

Our stay at this hotel was part of a road trip down Hwy 1 to San Simeon then up to Yosemite National Park. When planning our holiday we had questioned whether going to see the Yosemite National Park was worth the detour. Have no doubts it is more than worth giving time to visit this incredible natural wonder. During our...

Lodgers will really enjoy the original art murals on the room walls, created by the wife of the owner of the motel. Exceedingly clean rooms with a delightful view of the Sierra. Well staffed. Be advised that it snows in winter in Oakhurst, and chains on state highways may be required on tires. Access to the interior rooms are on...

We love this hotel, have stayed here many times. Beautiful setting, nice rooms. Love the indoor pool. Staff is courteous, service is good. Only (minor) complaint is that bar/lounge closes early, even on weekends.

This is the third year we have stayed at this hotel for our Thanksgiving gathering. Great location to the family residence. It's central to all the other services available in Oakhurst. It's a good location to access Yosemite which we have done the past two years. Everyone is friendly and helpful and we appreciate the service we receive.

Outside the hotel blends in seamlessly with the surroundings. This hotel has a great open, quirky lobby/reception area. Upstairs has an interesting (not overpriced) souvenir collection. The staff are welcoming and very helpful. The rooms are large and more than comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it.

This hotel was spread over many acres on a steep hill. Lovely private balconies, a swimming pool and a laundry. The room was spacious and well equipped. Only the restaurant let it down - the main restaurant was closed and food was served in the bar at restaurant prices with two noisy televisions that no-one was watching. The waiter refused...

Michele and I had a very nice two night stay at this location while visiting her sister in Oakhurst. Our room was large and very comfortable. It was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The lobby was very attractive. The front desk staff was courteous and very helpful in making our stay great. We will be returning again...
