Amazing hotel, great location, affordable, easy access to Yosemite! Definitely, a must go for people who want to stay in Oakhurst on their way to Yosemite. The rooms have microwaves, kitchen sinks, TV, free coffee etc. Staff is friendly and sweet! They have a hot water pool for those cold days you want to take a dip in the water...

There was a British mother and daughter in the pool with us, and then some Asian kids jumped in, and then we talked with a foursome of Germans and saw them later at dinner in one of Oakhurst's restaurants, and some Italians sat next to us at breakfast and since I speak Italian I could understand their (highly justified) complaints...

We found this motel to be an ideal spot to tour Yosemite and the various museums in the area. The staff was especially helpful and knowledgeable. Everything in the facility is clean and appropriate for a mountain lodge. We found the breakfast to be quite adequate with lots of selections (various muffins, breads, spreads, yogurt, juice, fresh fruit, cereal and...

Huge room, but I think it needs updated. Excellent staff...courteous and very helpful (able to recommend possible hiking trails to see Sequoias as Mariposa Grove is closed). Great, simple breakfast. Beautiful lobby!!! LOVED the location for access to Yosemite. No frills, but a good value for the money!!!

The room was updated and beautiful. People are friendly. Brandon at the front desk was kind and so very helpful with everything I asked, including food menus and suggestions of what to do. Highly suggest staying here. Janet was also very knowledgeable about parks and places to eat and visit. Great visit!

We were very pleased with our room. There was lots of space, nice and clean and it had everything you could need. So why was so little effort put into breakfast? On our first day there was no fresh fruit - I assume it had all gone. Then just cereal, poor standard of bread and some tiny over sweet muffins....

The staff is super nice. The place is clean (they are currently updating it) and the rooms are big. The only way we knew they were in the process of updating is because there is a sign saying so. It was quiet and clean. Great place to stay, will stay here again if we get to come back.

I stayed here for 2 nights back in June 2016. The hotel itself was average with a small buffet breakfast area. There was no bar or proper lounge, it had more of a hostel feel. However it was clean and well maintained. I had some issues with my booking and when I arrived my 'pay at hotel' booking had been...
