Excellent service and really nice people at the front desk. Would stay there again any time! There's a delicious breakfast in the morning and a Dennys at the other side of the parking lot. They even upgraded my room for free to one with terrace.

We enjoyed are stay and it was the front reception that was helpful. It was nice to be in updated clean room but to have an all around clean hotel that the wood trim or bathroom that was not a bunch of patch work of updates. parking was great and to get to are room we did not have to walk every where to fine it. we would stay there again.

Room Tip: look at room before paying.

We just returned from a 2 nights stay at this hotel..everyone at the front reception was very friendly and helpful..breakfast was ample and was being refilled at a fast pace, rooms were large in size, good shower pressure, large screen TV, 24 hours coffee in the lobby, parking was plentiful, location was handy for different eating options. I could not find any fault with what the hotel had to offer. The only area of improvement would be that the rooms and lobby are dated and could benefit from an update...That is the reason for the 4 stars...

I walked in on a Friday night in December and booked 2 nights. The staff was very friendly and provided excellent recommendations for food and activities in Oakhurst. The room was huge and had fridge and large flat screen TV as welll as a sitting area. Great WiFi also. You can walk to many restaurants including Dennys in the parking lot. A great find - I will be back!

We originally booked a hotel near the west gate of Yosemite but due to the Rim Fire that hotel was evacuated and we were advised to change our booking to this hotel a few days prior to our arrival to the area.
This hotel was nice and comfort. A bit old but well maintained. Rooms were generally clean. So was the shower. Room had fridge and microwave, as well as a big LCD TV.
Breakfast was also relatively good, though not very comfort as it was served in the lobby.

The hotel is far away from Yosemite valley, but is close to the southern parts of the park. We had no choice as the west entrance was closed, but if I visit Yosemite again I am not sure I will stay in this side of the park.

Completely different from what i see in their website and what i really see. Too far from Yosemite valley (may be it took me 2 hrs to reach Yosemite valley), and not a clean place, the carpets and further looks very old. Will not recommend to my friends.

If you are on the way to Yosemite and just want to sleep overnight, and care about ambience may be a good choice. Have Dennys, Mcdonalds, Starbucks nearby.

i just had an awesome stay at this hotel while visiting Yosemite Park for the first time. My room was super spacious. I was traveling alone but I could have easily fit 2-3 more adults in the room comfortably, and everyone on the hotel staff were super friendly, helpful, and accommodating.
The hotel was clean, the lobby was nice and the complimentary breakfast was pretty much what I expected, not amazing, but free, so no complaining here. Fruit, yogurt, toast, waffles, cereal, juice, and coffee. If you are looking for more options for breakfast, there is a Dennys about 5 feet away.
And considering I bought the groupon deal for this 2 night stay, I felt like I got the best deal in the world!!
