Nice clean rooms, well appointed. insist on the back rooms farthest away from the reception building. much much better with woodland views and very quiet. The rooms in the reception building get all the residents cars passing and also cars arriving for the restaurant and bar. if offered a pool view room remember that it is open until 10.PM! If noisy guests use the pool for drinking and talking loudly, which some do, then it could spoil your evening.

We stayed at this hotel as it was reasonably priced and because of its location close to Yosemite ( 2 hour drive ). On arrival, the staff were very friendly. We were presented with a voucher for a complimentary drink if we had our meal in the restaurant, which we did. The hotel room was comfortable and spacious, and the hotel complex was very quiet. Breakfast was included in the price of the hotel and was served in the on site restaurant. Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visit Yosemite on a budget.

We only came here because we had to make a significant detour because of the Yosemite fire. However, it turned out to be a great choice.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was large and comfortable with good wi-fi connections. Breakfast was included in the rate and it was very good.

Overall - well recommended if you are in the area.

The service by the hotel staff was beyond expectations. The room was very comfortable, the air conditioner a bit noisy, but at the same time, it was appreciated. I had dinner at the restaurant - the service was excellent, but the steak that I ordered was not. I think I would order something else next time.

We stayed here for just one night in late August 2013, at the height of the wildfires. Although my family were concerned about the fires and the presence of smoke the next morning, the staff were great about reducing any fears that we had. This hotel is great, an oasis of calm on the edge of Yosemite. Staff were great and the room was very nicely furnished, ok a bit dated, but who needs that boutique look anyway. It was clean, comfortable and functional. Nice pool, but watch the surface on the spa pool as it ruined some of our swimwear!
The diner next door to the hotel does some great 'local' fare, the rib eye was great and there is a great salad bar with the dinner options and very reasonably priced too. The owner was great and made us feel very welcome and we had breakfast (complimentary) the next morning where again the reception was fab! Breakfast was a joy, the best we had of our 18 days in the USA.
We would certainly recommend this location and if you are visiting Yosemite, Jamestown and the railroad museum, this location is perfect, we loved it and only wish that we had been able to stay another night.

Room Tip: Go for a ground floor, pool view if possible. We had a second floor room and there are no lifts and...

Great staff, large, clean and quiet room. Free vouchers for breakfast at the attached restaurant (awesome full breakfast!). We stayed here on last minute's notice due to change in our travel plans and we found a real gem. I would give a HIGH recommendation to this hotel if you are in the area. The little restaurant was excellent too.

So it's emotional enough dropping your kid off at college for the first time, let alone in the middle of what has become the 4th largest wildfire in California State history. The Best Western Sonora Oaks has some pretty amazing people ! They were kind and helpful in spite of what was going on around them! I will be staying at this property every time I visit my kid over the next two years !
