“Lovely hotel, fantastic setting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

We stayed here for one night en route to Yosemite. The hotel is situated in a lovely setting within the quaint town of Oakhurst. Check in was good, the lady was very friendly. Our room was huge, with two king size beds. It was very clean and well maintained, although the decor was classic which suited the surrounding area. We had a look at the pool but didn't go in as it was a bit late but looked good. The bed was very comfortable and had a fantastic nights sleep there as the surrounding area was peaceful with lack of noise in the evening. Breakfast was good, with bacon, eggs and various pastries and fruit.

The rooms are nice enough for the price you pay. The grounds are really nice with picnic tables and nice landscaping. There is a nice indoor pool with a hot tub, but there was a giant squirrel jumping around in there that was a bit disconcerting. The place is not new, but it was probably a top notch motel in its day. Still, it is not bad for the location. One funny thing happened as we decided to try the motel restaurant. We went in and there was only a few customers at the bar with many empty tables. The waitress told us there would be about a 15 or 20 minute wait. My wife commented that there is nobody in there and there was another couple standing there who said they had said the same thing. We told them we would go somewhere else and we did not bother going back.

It is an extremely quiet atmosphere. The theme is adorable. The indoor pool was nice and the breakfast was great. If you are traveling with kids ask for first floor. We were not in our room but for 20 minutes and got a call about the noise and this was around 7 at night. First time that has ever happened to us. It would have been nice for them to notice that we had just gotten into the room before calling with a "noise" problem. The kids did whisper everywhere they went because they were afraid they would get into trouble, it actually became very funny. All in all a nice place.

We were only here one night and it was OK in a motelish sort of way. We were upstairs on the corner of the building. It was relatively quiet and we didn't need the airconditioning or heat. We had two windows that opened, one in the main room and another in the bath. One of the weakest hairdryers I have ever used. Our room came with breakfast but that only included an extremely limited buffet which was as my husband said "as appealing as a prison meal". We declined to eat there and went elsewhere in town. Not sure why all the positive reviews about the breakfast or the rooms.

Staff seemed fairly surly. We arrived early but were not allowed to check in until after 4. We were told they had opened new rooms but had limited cleaning staff. Our room was ready when we returned at 5pm.

Had a very nice stay at this hotel. Loved the old landscaping, the Yosemite murals and the view. The restaurant was excellent. The service was really above and beyond. Did not want to leave. Very good access to the park as well. Most importantly this hotel is pet friendly!!!! Hope to go back soon.

Room Tip: Hotel is situated on a very steep hill. Not to worry, a golf cart will take you up if you need help.

We stayed in the "new part" that is located on the other side of the restaurant. We were told the rooms had been open for around two weeks. The new area was not very close to the pool and sauna, but you can drive up there and park pretty close. The room was spotless and the staff was very pleasant. The location was easy to find and was 16 mikes away from Yosemite. Some of the pricier packages included breakfast, but if you dont qualify for a voucher, make sure to tell the staff you have a room and we received a 25% off the check.
