Holiday Motel
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Oakdale
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We thoroughly appreciated our room as the owners put us near the grassy area for our dogs sake. He did not charge us a higher rate when he switched us to that more expensive room...he and his wife did it out of the goodness of their heart because the pavement was way too hot for our dogs to walk on. The outside temp was over 90 degrees so the pool plus the air cooler in the room made it very comfortable for us. And the grass nearby our room made it comfortable for our dogs.

The room was nice, accommodating and comfortable. Everything worked...the TV, the coffee maker, etc. We would stay again. There is a nice all you can eat buffet directly across the street from the motel serving Japanese and Chinese food. Good crab, tempura and sushi for a very low cost. Plus, they fill the wine to the brim of the glass.

We stayed at the Holiday Motel in Oakdale for two nights when touring California. It represented excellent value for money. The room was clean and comfortable and there was a lovely pool. We especially liked that it was possible to walk to a number of restaurants for dinner rather than get into the car again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room back from the road.

Small motel situated along the hi-way, and nearby they got lots of hotels and motels, Such as Best Western, Super 8 and Express holiday Inn etc. But this one offer slightly better rate as I am a walkin.

A swimming pool is right at the middle of parking lot, which is a good idea as it do save a space and created a nice receartional area. Room are clean, all got aircon and it also got 2 queen size bed in the room.So if you got a family, it will be better value yet. But not sure if they will charge more if one got more people to stay. Its a good place to stop over for rest if you just visited Yosemeti Park.

Nearby there are fast food and a good steak house called " House of Beef". Even Starbuck is just stone through away. Free wifi, but its signal is weak, and half the time can't get on.

Breakfast, althought it free, but it start 8 am, and it only offer hot coffee and those packaged pastry, so forget it.

Room Tip: Ask for a discount from the owner.

The room was very dirty and it smelled awful. When we turned on the aircondition, the air smelled like pee!!! Even a small movement on the bed was causing loud kirky sound. The internet didn't work. The furniture was old and very damaged, we couldn't even open the drawer.
We left the Hotel at 4 am because we couldn't stay any longer this room. It was the worst experience in our vacation. Don't even think about staying there.

Banner at the road announced "Newly Remodeled Rooms -- Lowest Rates in Town -- New Management". The last two points might have been accurate. I don't believe the first point was; or at least we didn't get one of the remodeled rooms, and we were shown two. The first room we were assigned had multiple issues: lamp with no shade, sink plunger wouldn't open and t.v. reception was very poor. The motel staff was very willing to switch us to another room. This room has deficiences also: the light "fixture" over the vanity was just bare bulbs, the in-the-door room lock didn't work, the frig and microwave were mis-matched and the frig was noisy; but we stuck with it. There was no hair dryer or alarm clock and the bars of soap stated "made of 100% vegetable oil" and that was it!

In the numerous trips to the office, there was no offer or mention of a coupon for breakfast at McDonalds. Don't know if that is still being offered.

We stayed In Holiday Motel after finishing our Yosemite park trip.
It is 2 star motel with 2 star price....no surprises....Other motels were at least from $20-30.00 more.
It is drivable distance from the park which allowed us to hike until 6pm and pay less for the night than at park pricey properties.
We stayed in double renovated room. It was clean, new bathroom, typical motel room, with color TV, 2 beds, table ect We paid 70$ via hotels.com but I saw sign $ 49.00 single...I would stay there again if need. Receptionists were not too friendly but it is not very important. I think it is a family run hotel. There are many food establishments walking distance from motel as well as few stores. We did not used their voucher for MC Donald's breakfast, but they provided it. Good stayand not expensive.

Room Tip: Ask for renovated room, I am not sure if all of them are

We booked online. When we arrived my grandma loved the place she said "it's so homey." I believe it reminded her of her younger days :0. The motel is all one floor which was excellent for us. With all the suitcases who wants to lug them upstairs. Any hoot the front desk personnel were very polite and helpful to where to go for dinner. They even give you a voucher for breakfast. Its at mc donald's, good for all of us because we are on the go in the mornings. As for our room, it was very comfortable. we felt at home really. After we settled in we went out to the pool. It was one of the cleanest pools we seen so far on our trip. All in all our experience was excellent we will actually stay on our way back that way.
