Little hotel, great rooms, good shower pressure, nice restaurant, generous employees, hard to find parking for and over size vehicle but overall it was a nice hotel/small get away spot. Any time I stay in Sonora I always choose here!

Located just a short distance from downtown. Room had microwave, decent size refrigerator, free internet, cable tv with HBO. Bathroom area separate sink/toliet tub shower area. Our room came with complimentary full breakfast at their restaurant. Don't know if always available. Outside access, no interior corridor. Bed was very comfy to us.

This place is just great! The room was super comfortable, everything worked, and we were very, very pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, the furniture was absolutely adequate, the beds were very comfortable and we had great access to our car from the room.

We live in Sonora and had to use a hotel to spend the night because of snow conditions at our home. We would not stay anywhere else in town except at this hotel-always good and never a disappointment. Restaurant is also a good mix with the hotel-they offer breakfast with the room and the breakfast is excellent and very filling.

No frills but this hotel met my needs. It was clean and the staff friendly and helpful, an overall good value. I found the beds too hard and have the usual complaint that people smoke too close to entrances and exits. After leaving Sonora, we stayed two nights at the at Yosemite View Lodge.

Thank you for sharing that the Best Western Plus Sonora Oaks Hotel is better than others in the area. Due to the efforts of our team, we are voted the Best Hotel in the County, and parts of Yosemite are in our county, too. I agree that it is irritating to have smokers around doorways outside.
