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

My family and I stayed here as a base to go see Yosemite. The hotel staff were very helpful and service was great. The rooms were a decent size, not as modern as some places but I don't mind that. It has all the usual facilities including pool, spa etc and there was a restaurant that did breakfast (even though... 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.

3 of us stayed there recently for 2 nights in 1 room with 2 queen beds and the room was incredible and very spacious. It smelled so clean the minute we walked in. It had a frig, microwave, coffee maker, ironing board & iron. Very nice bathroom. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay there again. We... More

Stopped here for a quick night on the way to the airport. Check-in was very smooth and the room was more than adequate. Included breakfast at an onsite restaurant that was pretty good. Perfectly fine place to stay if you are in the area.

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
