What a great visit I experienced in Oakhurst with my daughter, grandson and granddaughter. Staying at the Hotel topped it off. The swimming pool was a slight hike but then why not; we are in the mountaines. The pool was clean and slightly secluded. Greenery all around and the hot tub was very secluded. My grandson decided to stay with... More

The outside is very inviting. There were flies all over our rooms. There was evidence of earlier travelers killing flies. The toilet seat was loose. The exercise center was not to open until 8 A.M. and didn't open then either. The room was musty, and had not been remodeled since Reagan was in office.

This is a solid hotel on the way into Yosemite. The room was large enough with a good bed. It was clean. Our specific rooms opened to a patio above the pool, where we had a nice gathering before dinner. The hotel has a lot of unique character that separates it from a chain location. It appears that every room... More

Fabulous stay, great location. We were traveling thru and needed a place to stay with a pool. This place was perfect! Great pool and hot tub. We ate dinner and breakfast at the hotel and the meals were great! It's nice when you don't need to leave the property!

We requested a room in the newest building and it was awesome! Although the view is practically nonexistent with just looking out to parking lots and Denny's, the room itself was in pristine condition, super clean, spacious, and very pretty with beautiful decor. It was very quiet and comfortable. The restaurant was a bit annoying on the two occasions that... More

We found this Best Western last minute when our other Valentine's plans fell through and we decided to take our dog with us to Yosemite. So on top of needing to find a nice hotel last minute, it needed to be a dog friendly hotel. The price was perfect, no extra charge for our dog. We were surprised when we... More

We chose this hotel as it was centrally located to where everyone lived (Northern and Southern California) and we had a classmate who lives in Oakhurst who hosted us. The hotel was convenient to the entrance of Yosemite National Park and very close to many stores and restaurants. The hotel was awesome!! They put all of us in the same... More

The hotel was actually nice, clean, spacious... But it was not the closest choice to Yosemite Valley, which was 1 hr 20 min away. We drove down Friday night and checked in, then went to the park on Saturday, which was fine since we were driving in the morning. We were supposed to stay a second night, but decided to... More

My husband and I stayed at this BW before a trip through Yosemite NP. This hotel is very close to the park and looks like it belongs there. Check in was fast and efficient and friendly. Our room was clean and the bed was nice. There was a huge painting of Glacier Point above the bed and other artwork that... More

This is a great hotel. We had excellent service, and it is close to Yosemite. The lobby is awesome, and staff is friendly and helpful. Check-in was easy, and the internet worked wonderfully. We will definitely stay here again if/when we head back to Yosemite!
