We enjoyed our stay in this clean, spacious, comfy hotel. It is well worth a repeat visit. The location is convenient for the Gold Country and as a stopping off point before heading to Yosemite. The sit-down, made-to-order breakfast was a bonus treat. A "YARTS" bus stop is on site if you want to save wear and tear on your... More

Having lived in Sonora for many years we knew that the Best Western Plus Sonora Oaks hotel was respected as clean with excellent service. So we never thought about staying anywhere else when we return to the area to visit family and friends. That was until I waited to late to book a room and ended up at the The... More

At check in the staff was very friendly and helpful. Suggested where to park the bike at the best location. The restaurant was very friendly and the breakfasts which came with the room was very good. My hotel room was close to the pool but the room was very quiet and restful.

Conveniently located near the sonora area. The check in was quick and the front desk personnel were polite and friendly. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The room also had a microwave, mini refrigerator and plenty of convenient plugs for electronics. The reason I didn't give them a higher rating is that the room was a little noisy in... More

We stayed here as a base for our visit to Yosemite. The hotel is situated some distance out of Sonora and eating in the hotel was the best option. The hotel is a motel type hotel with the rooms centering around the swimming pool and reception and the Pine Tree restaurant and bar. Our room was large with two double... More

What a great detailed review! Since it is detailed, I might make a few observations: We are not a motel; many California hotel have rooms situated around the pool for esthetics. We have Queens and King beds, no doubles. Instead of a room safe we have keyed boxes, like a bank, at the front desk. We have never had a... More

We hope you had a great time in Yosemite! We will share the compliments on our staff and service. They love feedback! We will mention the smiles feedback at the restaurant, too. You are correct: We have many great restaurants in the area but most close by 9:00-10:00pm. Some deliver, if you are too road weary to go out. More

This hotel was a great fit for our family as we visited Pinecrest Lake and Yosemite! the suite room made our family stay very comfortable. We'd come back on a future trip to this area. The service at the hotel was very good.
