The hotel was clean and the staff was very nice. We had a chance to meet the owner, Gargi Panchal, and she was cooperative and made us feel at home. We would recommend this hotel for people looking for a place to stay out of Yosemite, but still fairly close by.

We got a good price for the room by booking ahead. Much cheaper than staying in Yosemite Park, but we ended up driving A LOT on this trip! If you can swing it, STAY IN THE PARK. You'll save yourself many hours of mountain driving. (It took about 1 1/2 hours to get to the valley.) Anyway, the hotel was okay. Clean, but dated. Comfortable bed. The king room was just big enough for us. We appreciated the microwave and small refrigerator. Breakfast was pretty basic -- cold cereals, juices, bagels, toast, peanut butter, make-your-own waffles, etc. For what we were looking for and what we were willing to pay, it was okay. The front office staff was very nice.

We stayed here for 6 days as a base for trips to Yosemite. Staff are very helpful and relaxed. Everything is very clean and this may reflect the prescence of the owner. At least it has the feel of a personal high standard motel.

My wife and I decided last minute to head out of town for the Labor Day holiday weekend. Checked for hotels avalaible in Oakhurst since Chuckchansi Resort Casino in Coarsegold was fully booked. Last minute hotel hunting made us pay the price --- an overnight stay at this cheap hotel for $243. What a rip off. Our hotel room was not even ready yet though we were already checked-in and given the room keys. There were no towels when we went in. We had to drive to town to kill time while our room was being cleaned. The bed, pillows were very uncomfortable, woke up in the middle of the night (3am to 430am) because of a neck pain caused by the cheap pillows. Towels were so rough like rugs. Not going back to this hotel again.... stay away from this hotel.... you'll be better off going to Best Western a few blocks down the road.

If you're looking for luxury - this is not the hotel for you. If you are looking for a clean hotel, with comfortable beds, at a reasonable price.....then this may be just what you are looking for. My husband and I stayed 4 nights during August for our 40th anniversary. This was the only hotel we could find during our time frame. It turned out to be a great choice! Our hotel room was clean, bed very comfortable (mattress clean also - I always check), large refrigerator and microwave in room, and good air conditioning. Breakfast included cereals, waffles, fruit, bagels, toast, and beverages - plenty of choices for us. Hotel is located about an hour away from the valley of Yosemite which means you are not stuck with Yosemite prices for dinner! Restaurants, movies, and groceries are nearby. The Yosemite Discovers tours came right to the hotel to pick us up for a marvelous tour. Downsides for this hotel include no elevator, limited seating in the breakfast area, and limited areas outside to relax. Overall, this is a great choice for people who want a comfortable, no frill hotel, and the conveniences or visiting Yosemite without getting stuck with exorbitant "Yosemite Prices"!

Room Tip: No elevator available - so request a ground floor room if stairs are a problem for you.

My wife and I needed a place to spend the night after a long day at Yosemite. We stopped at the Days Inn in Oakhurst and asked if a room was available. The on duty clerk advised he had a room and I asked for a price. I knew it would be a little high but when he quoted 370.00 for a night in a standard room, I asked him for a AAA rate and he said that was the AAA rate, how did he know I was a AAA member??? Anyone who travels thru Oakhurst and needs a room better watch their wallets if they stop at the Days Inn.

Room Tip: We ended up staying at the Comfort Inn across the highway. All they had left was a suite. We paid...
