We've stayed here twice on vacation & the hotel has always been well accommodated & clean. The staff, especially Nora and Darnelle at the front desk go the extra mile to make guests feel welcome & have everything they need. The hotel was also quiet and the breakfast next door is good. This is our go to spot in Sonora.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Even without a pet, this hotel is excellent for this category of hotel. Very comfortable, excellent staff, very clean and maintained rooms and property. If you have a pet, they don't seem to shove you in a dingy room in the back and it is one of the best Pet friendly hotels I have tried. The room was very comfortable...

Thank you for noticing that we chose pet rooms for the benefit of the dog and the guest. The ones we strive to recommend have easy access to guests cars and dog walking paths. Some of the rooms are right next door to the breakfast and restaurant. If you need a closer placement, please ask front desk We also deep...

Staff was very friendly, the room was nice and breakfast was one of four choices at the adjacent restaurant. Very nice! The only negative was the lame TV remote which didn't have much of a range and was super slow. But that's minor.

Nice hotel. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms not fancy but clean and had a small refrigerator and microwave. There is an evening managers reception with appetizers, beer, wine, and soft drinks. Chris was very friendly greeting guests as they entered the reception and checking tables during evening to refill your glass and be sure you were...

This hotel is an unexpected treasure a few hours drive of Yosemite within the quaint town of Senora. Everything far exceeded my expectations: from booking with Nora, who made sure I received a wine basket and reserved a room with a view of wooded area at the best rate possible, to the free and well supplied Happy Hour Thurs, to...

Our team thanks you for your wonderful, detailed review! Your observations are welcome and your hotel details are correct. We are working on that elevator concept right now; we hope to have resolved and installed by Fall 2017. In the meantime we have free baggage service for all our rooms and guests.

Hotel is fine but pricey. Stayed on way back from Yosemite. Service staff very friendly and helpful. Restaurant is average. The rooms were lean and comfortable . I enjoyed my stay but felt the hotel was expensive. It seemed like many of the hotels in that area were expensive as well.

We are sorry that the room rates seemed higher than you wanted to spend. Please consider off days or off season to save even more. Sign up for BW Rewards to give you points for future stays. I hope that helps. We are happy you enjoyed you stay and Yosemite National Park.

This hotel has an older section and a newer section. We were in the newer section and it was very peaceful. The staff is always very helpful and friendly. The hotel is away from the downtown area, which in my opinion is a good thing as downtown can get congested and noisy. The restaurant on site, though not affiliated, is...

We appreciate your review of our hotel. I should point out that the difference between the "old and new" areas of the hotel are minor. Both were remodeled at the same time. I agree that the section you occupied is quiet and in the woods. Nice! The other section has great rooms facing the pool. For pool oriented guests or...

My friend and I stayed here for a weekend trip from the Bay Area. We rented the 2 Queen suite, but it was weirdly furnished so we didn't end up using the extra living room at all. Furniture is scarce and all pushed to the sides, leaving a barren room-- but if you want to do yoga, jumping jacks, or...

Thank you for your feedback about the rooms and hairdryer. Although we are not certain about your concerns, we will inspect all of our two room suites . Your main concern seems to be a hair dryer that clicked off and the big rooms with not enough furniture. We hope you enjoyed your bike trip in our beautiful region.

The rooms were pretty nice. Beds were quite comfortable. They need better, firmer pillows. The pool looked very inviting, though we arrived later and left early. It was an outside pool. The man behind the counter upon arrival was a bit of a jerk, but the hotel itself was not bad at all.
