Newly remodeled rooms. very friendly staff and excellent service/attitude; Free wifi and breakfast. Basic breakfast with bread, cereals, milk, juices etc.

Very nice view of the mountains. Very quiet rooms in a solidly built hotel and no noises to keep one awake.

My son and I stayed april 16th overnight on our way to Yosemite. I had already looked online for prices and this hotel listed their prices starting at $89 per night. When we arrived at 12:15 am, we rang the door bell and woke up the clerk who had already fallen asleep. My son checked in and gave her his credit card and she proceeded to tell us the rate was $243. I asked her about the internet price and she said that she couldnt give us that rate because it was their last room. I dont think that was accurate information because the parking lot was practically empty. She proceeded to tell us that all hotels increase their rates depending on how many rooms they have available. She said she would give us the rate if we checked in the following day. There will never be a following day here! I feel she just willy nilly charged us what ever she wanted. My son and I stayed and slept for 5 hours and then continued our trip into Yosemite. The beds were average and the room was clean.

Suggestion: Call ahead and find out what they will really be charging you before you arrive.

Room Tip: Call ahead of your arrival

We arrived at 12:30 am and woke up the clerk. We had already looked up this hotel on the internet and it showed a price that was reasonable to us. We get there and the receptionist tells us it's 2.5 more than the internet price. I asked her why it was so much more than the listed internet and she said it was her last room and she could charge us what she wanted. She went on to say that all hotels do the same and she would not honor the internet price anyway. My son pulled out his credit card and just paid for the room. This price gouging is so upsetting to me.

During my California roadtrip I stayed in a few Days Inns, and they are pretty much all the same. However, the Days Inn in Oakhurst is different. You get the same features and services, but overall it is just friendlier, cleaner, nicer, better breakfast... It was a very nice place to stay, as a gateway to Yosemite National Park. I will definitely stay here again when I get back to Yosemite!

When visiting Yosemite for second time my wife and I decided to stay in Oakhurst. We chosed this hotel via web by considering price, location (Highway 41) and looking. We stayed 4 nights.
The room was clean, big enough, comfortable. Breakfast was included and met our expectations (waffle maker, cereals, fruits, coffee, and other things). Parking place was large. What is most important, the Hotel Staff people were very nice and ready to answer any question o provide advice on activities to do, places to visit or services to request. When visiting Yosemite Valley, the Hotel is no so close (60 miles away) but in vacations, who cares? We had the chance to visit other places in the sorroundings (Northfolk, lakes, ...). I would book this hotel again.
