“Pleasant stay near Yosemite”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We were looking for a comfortable overnight stay before visiting Yosemite, and had Best Western points to use for a room. This hotel greatly exceeded expectations. It is beautifully landscaped, feels more like a resort than a motel. Lovely playground under the oaks nearby, indoor pool and nice gym. The room was quite spacious and equipped with microwave and fridge. We did not try the breakfast as we needed to get an early start.

The Room was nice. Dinner at the restaurant was OK. Breakfast was horrible - even though the restaurant was empty they sat us next to the trash and took over 20 minutes to get our simple dish. The hotel is a bit pricey. The internet is verrry slow.

This hotel showed great promise. The hotel is beautiful on the outside, and I looked forward to a room in the hills. Sadly my room was connected to the lobby :( for almost $200 I expected more. The fridge wasn't very cold and the t.v.had several channels (including nickalodeon for my 4 yr old) that were fuzzy. Overall I would still stay again. It was the nicest hotel in the Oakhurst area that I saw.

Really nice hotel with great facilities. Room was large and well equipped. Beds were really comfy so managed to get a good nights sleep prior to hitting the park. Only issue was with breakfast. Only 2 staff serving in a really busy restaurant. We got close to walking out as we wanted to get to the park early. Food was good when we eventually got it but if had known would have gone to restaurant next door.

We stayed at the Best Western Plus in Oakhurst while visiting Yosemite. The hotel was clean, beds were comfortable and the staff friendly. The small bar sink with the microwave and mini-fridge was a nice convenience too. There are other places to stay in/around Yosemite, but they book up fast and are way overpriced! There is plenty of food options in Oakhurst and it's only about 20 +/- miles to the south park entrance.

This is the first time that I have stayed at this hotel, I have passed it a number of times, had canceled at least one reservation previously due to schedule change, however this time, I was able to stay. After a full day in Yosemite, a nice drive out of the Portal with the overlook of the valley behind, I made my way along Highway 41 to Oakhurst. When I had passed this hotel previously on my many trips to this area, the hotel looked typically Best Western, meaning that it was a nice place, but nothing outstanding from the Highway. Well, it is more than just a typical BW. This is a very nice place to rest after a long day in the YO Valley. It is much larger than what you see from the road, the rooms are nice (we had a king), It had a microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, and a very nice little cat that chose to spend the night with us. I called her "Border Kitty" because she had the same markings as our Border Collie "Brier". There are a number of Motel Cats that roam the property, and the staff look after them with care, not contempt. In a lot of BW, there is a free breakfast buffet, however in this one, there is not, but there is an adjoining restaurant that is part of the hotel, and you do receive a price discount for your breakfast. The grounds are kept nicely landscaped and clean. One of the owners is a prolific artist and most of the rooms have wall murals painted by her, and in the restaurant there are a number of paintings that can be purchased (the artist is an octogenarian). Plan ahead and make your reservations early, especially during the summer months for the YO Valley is a very popular hang-out for the world travelers both locally (US) and the rest of the known universe. I would recommend this hotel for anyone that is planning on visiting the YO Valley for a day or after spending a number of days in the Valley, for a nice respite after leaving the Valley.

Room Tip: This hotel is situated on the side of a small hillside, and there are a number of separated building...

We stayed in a family suite with our daughter, son in law and 6 month old grandson. Our accommodations were clean, ample linens, delicious breakfast a few steps away in restaurant affiliated with the hotel, easy drive into and out of Yosemite. There are beautiful paintings all over the facility. We especially loved the painted mural above our beds. It was absolutely stunning and much nicer than typical art hanging on hotel room walls.
