Rooms decent enough for the price we paid but could do with a good refurbishment. But in hindsight, I think I would have much preferred to have paid more and stayed a lot closer to Yosemite Valley as the drive in was over an hour.

Our family's favorite place to stay on the way to Yosemite. A great place to rest weary bones after a long day's drive. We sleep here and then drive the curvy roads into the park during the daylight. Staff is friendly. Accommodations are spacious and clean. We love the wooded grounds and the play area for the kid. It feels... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom family room. It was spacious and decent enough room. The location to Yosemite was great and oakhurst has all the restaurants/supermarkets you need too. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The only downside of the motel was the floors were dirty. We had a toddler and we let her crawl around and her... More

5 of us stayed for 2 nights whilst visiting Yosemite. This was a great base and we would not hesitate to recommend the hotel - yes the decor is dated but the rooms are very spacious. We also ate at the restaurant for the 2 nights - the food was reasonable and very tasty and the Malbec was great for... More

We only stayed for one night in the 4th of July, we arrived late afternoon and just had time to check in and get change before heading out again. The staff were efficient and very helpful, the room was massive if not a wee bit dated but it was clean so that's what matters. It looked like a nice place... More

Nice room & amenities, very cute lobby. Super location in Oakhurst outside the south entrance to Yosemite and Mariposa Grove. We were put in a new room with excellent bathroom counter space and quiet a/c.

One of the best-the grounds were stunning and the rooms were very spacious and well appointed. Staff was very professional and their main objective was to see that your visit would be very pleasurable.

We had a room with two bedrooms with two different TVs which was very convenient with the kids. We tried both the indoor and outdoors pools and hot tubs. All were very clean. Our room was up the hill at the back so very quiet. Rooms could definitely use renovating but all very functional and clean.

We enjoyed this place a lot. We picked this hotel over others because of it's Dog Friendly accommodations. Our dog loved all the nature smells and the staff was wonderful. Would recommend again and bring your pet! We used as central base to go into Yosemite. It's about an hour to Yosemite Valley and 1+ hour to Glacier Point.
