We stayed here on a trip to do gold panning with the kids before the start of school. Gary at CA Gold Panning recommended this, and it was a good one night stay option and just as expected. Reception was courteous and room was clean, though smelled strongly of air freshener. It was well maintained, if spartan. There was a... More

It appears that you had a great stay and some adventures at the local parks. I love Columbia State Park, too. A great add-on to Yosemite. You are right about our location and quiet hotel. If anyone is really sensitive to noise, I recommend reserving rooms in the executive wing, back in the woods a bit. More

This is the first time we visit this hotel. The hotel has a few years on it, but it is well-maintained. The rooms are pretty basic, nothing... More

When we were greeted, we were asked if it was a special occasion and it was my birthday. A few minutes later she came out with a bag full of pretty tissue paper and inside was a nice bottle of red wine, some chocolates and cashews. A very unexpected surprise.

My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It was clean and well managed. The hotel staff were extremely helpful during our stay. I would recommend the Best Western Conference Center to anyone visiting in the Sonora area. The hotel is also a stop for a (YARTS) bus shuttle to Yosemite National Park.

In addition to your great Sonora experience, you tried out the Yosemite bus! I have taken that scenic bus trip, also. Fun to have someone else drive in a new 45' coach. With free shuttles in the park, it makes a very easy trip. We will share you comment about our teams. They enjoy the positive feedback. More
