We’ve stayed here 3 or 4 times now. This is a good, clean and quiet stopover for travelers on their way to Yosemite or up Sonora Pass. Breakfast at the adjoining restaurant is a good, and included in the room price. The front desk is efficient and helpful. Rooms are a little tired and the yellow paint in ours was... More

Outdated. Poor Quality. EXPENSIVE. NO INTERNET!!! Would highly recommend going somewhere else. The only plus about this hotel was that it included a full restaurant breakfast, however the quality of the breakfast was not good.

This is high season. For lower rates we suggest our sister hotel, Inns of California-Sonora, a nice 2 diamond lodging. Also we have lower rates after the popular summer season. Although most people have enjoyed our Complimentary Full Hot Served Breakfast, we are sorry it did not exceed your expectations. We actually do have internet; one of the fastwest in... More

After leaving San Francisco via Mur woods we stopped at this hotel in Sonora oaks. For a stop over this hotel was ok with good wifi and ac. Breakfast was complimentary and was of a good standard. This breaks the drive to Yosemite before you head to Las Vegas.

We are happy that you used us for a stopover on the way to great adventures. Next time we hope you can stay and enjoy some of the famous local attractions and parks. I just took some travel agents to cave exploring, zip lining, stagecoach rides, and a steam train ride. We hope to can "stop and smell the roses";... More

We normally stay at Bed and Breakfasts when visiting the Gold Country. We decided to try the Best Western in Sonora this time. We got a good rate (through Trip Advisor) and a very nice room near the Pool. The room was clean and comfortable. Very nice beds. The AC worked almost too well which was nice as it was... More

The hotel overall has a nice appearance. Our room was a good size, good layout in general. We did not feel cramped in any way. The was also a small deck outside (we were on the second floor) with a view of the trees, this was a nice feature. However, the bathroom had a VERY noisy fan, that went on... More

We stayed here for some much needed rest before our adventure in Yosemite. It is approximately an hour from park. A flood had pushed us to the north entrance so that is why we drove up north. Good hotel in small, quiet town. Breakfast is minimal but free parking and on Main Street in town. Easy to get to.

An enjoyable 3 days at this hotel as part of a tour of California. Hotel facilities were all in order, room was clean, pool was small but clean. We visited Yosemite; it's quite a long drive but there aren't many quality places nearer so this is a good base.

Thank you using our hotel as a base for visiting Yosemite National Park, which is in our county. On the beautiful Highway 120/108 we are approximately 75 minutes from the park. Getting there is part of the beauty and adventure! More

The price of $ 179.99 per night for a standard room with 2 queen beds is just to high. The idea that we had room to park a truck and trailer is nice. Even though we have to back out, and tie up the parking lot access for about 5 minuets, for the other guests.

Room 114 was extremely noisy all night long, from the refrigerator, air conditioning unit, and icemaker in the hallway outside the room. In addition, flies were buzzing around and we had to kill several in the room! I reported the noise and fly problems at checkout.
