Rooms need updating a bit. Clean and nice surroundings. Separate buildings make for quiet and nice landscaping areas. Nice indoor pool and spa. Attractive lobby. Front desk could be more helpful and friendly. Convenient to Yosemite.

Firstly the location is amazing, about 20 mins outside the park entrance. The grounds are also lovely here, there are two pools and a playground which is why I chose it. Oakhurst is fairly pretty there are lots of shops and restaurants nearby. The room was disappointing. The floor was dirty and the whole room needed upgrading to be honest.... More

Lovely place to stay, great room, great setting, quite a treat and very reasonable in cost. Unfortunately for someone who likes quiet, this place is very busy with activity seemingly all hours of the night and early morning which I found disruptive. If this is not bothersome to you, this is the place; I like to be able to sleep... More

Setting of the room was woodsy and beautiful with a private patio. Room was clean and comfortable and had more admen ties than most - microwave, refrigerator and coffee pot. Enjoyed my stay and will book again.

If you have to stay outside of Yosemite, this is an excellent choice. It's about 30 minutes to the entrance, however, the real drive is from the entrance to the village (an hours worth of twisty driving) The rooms are comfortable, the staff excellent. There's an indoor and outdoor pool. With hot tubs. Great place to relax after a days... More

everything was great - beautiful surroundings - even saw a family of 4 deer on the property - everyone was very helpful and courteous. Affordable - great experience for the money. Great place for children as well.

Made an online reservation an requested a room away from the pool area. At check in was put in a room directly in front of the pool. The pool was used ALL night by a bunch of loud drunk men and young girls. Don't believe that the pool closes at 10 pm, it doesn't! The staff here does not care.... More

Worst Hotel Experience in 20 years. Entire room was dirty. Smelled like stale smoke. Décor is from the 70's as are the beds. Popcorn Ceiling, needs painting. Fixtures were old and dated. Balcony was dirty. Entry Locks were credit key style with a upper deadbolt (Illegal). Outdoor stairs and grounds were dirty and unkempt.

My family and I stayed here for my brothers wedding weekend and we had a really nice stay. The rooms are clean and beds are comfy. It's a huge hotel so it's really cool walking around and exploring the property. Outside of our room were a herd of deer that hung out to drink water. It was really neat to... More

Stayed at this motel during a visit to Yosemite National Park, because of its location close to the south entrance to the Park. While the outward appearance of the hotel was reasonably attractive, and the lobby where we checked in was fine, the room was dated, dark, carpets appeared to be dirty, and the room was too noisy because it...
