My friend and I went up to Oakhurst for my birthday and spent 3 wonderful nights over Valentines weekend. The rates were great but the staff was even better. The Cindi's (there is more then one) were just wonderful as was all the staff...And Lucy really shows how she cares about your stay with them. Would recommend this wonderful stopping... More

Just came back from this hotel. On the reception desk, there is a framed document stating this hotel has 4 stars out of 5 from Tripadvisor. Through our stay, we kept wondering - how come? - We have reserved a room for 5 people, and when we came in at 11 pm we had only 2 queen beds in the... More

Dear Hidey: We are very sorry that you had from what it appears a very poor stay at our hotel. We apologize that your stay started off so poorly.

This hotel was absolutely wonderful. It is close enough to the Southern entrance of Yosemite while still being around businesses and food places. The hotel staff was incredible. All of our needs were met when asked. And the staff was super friendly in all of my interactions with them. My 4-year-old daughter loved being at this hotel and being able... More

The one-night business visit started off a bit comically as in the first two rooms I was sent to, the bed wasn't made. Literally - the mattresses were off the bed and the frame was disassembled!

Nice, clean, large rooms with fridge & microwave & sink area, shower fit large and tall me. Small pool and large spa both outdoors and closed in March, but looked nice. Small but adequate exercise room. Overall, a nice find.

We booked this hotel through their website in advance and got a great deal. The hotel is clean and cozy. The rooms are large with a wet bar, couch, king bed, 2 comfy chairs and a small table.
