“Been updated, good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

I've stayed here off and on throughout the years. It was decent and reasonably priced. Still is in my opinion. And if you appreciate updated decor then you will like this hotel even more. Very modern styling, different from the dated decor it had about 5+ years ago. Rooms are clean and furniture is solid, not flimsy. Perhaps my only complaint... The light bulbs used. There's nothing truly wrong with them, but personally, I get migraine headaches. Those daylight bulbs with the bright white light can bring on one for me. If you're sensitive to this, perhaps consider calling ahead to see if they can be changed, deal with it, or maybe bring your own. Other than that, it's worth staying here. You'll appreciate the location as well.

Spent 4 nights here in July as a base for visiting Yosemite. We had a family suite which was great for our family of four as it gave us some extra space. Beds very comfy and it was pretty quiet which was surprising as it's on the main road. Very convenient to restaurants and the Kids enjoyed the pool. The breakfast was also good and made the start of the day and the drive to the park a little easier. Everything was clean and even on a day we didn't leave until noon our room was cleaned. We ate at the Chinese place next door, crab cakes send round house pizza. All were very good. Would definitely recommend round house pizza if you're looking for pizza. And d's laundromat behind the McDonald's was a quick stop for laundry before we moved on with our vacation.

Due to areservation glitch with priceline/booking.com, we lost our first night lodging reservation in Oakhurst. Luckily our original hotel had found us a room at the Comfort Inn across the road. We received a very nice military rate and the room turned out to be very nice. Clean and comfortable with ample space. The breakfast at this hotel was great- large selection of food items- hot and cold- but lack of seating for all of their guests.

When in Oakhurst ( which I think is best place to stay for Yosemite visit due to it's close proximity to the south gate, ) go with this place first instead of the Southgate across the street (which had higher prices and paltry breakfast offering)

Room Tip: Get to breakfast early- lot's to see and do inside the park- don't sleep in.

Stayed here for 4 nights. The good thing is that Oakhurst has plenty of choices for dinner and shopping, if needed. Yes, it's 16 miles from the hotel to the entrance gate but it is far from a straight shot. Very winding and twisting road (as are those in Yosemite). Takes about 30 minutes to get to the entrance.

Hotel was nice and clean. Breakfast selection was good but there really is not room to sit and eat unless you're going to sit outside and have breakfast. Internet was relatively slow and kept cutting out at times for no apparent reason.

Rooms could use a thermostat to control the a/c. Bed and pillows were very comfortable.

I would recommend to others travelling to the area.

Room Tip: Either I had a herd of elephants staying above me on the second floor or there is not a lof of sound...

We wanted the closest place to Yosemite; and this fitted the bill. Clean room with a fantastic surprise of a microwave and fridge freezer in the room. The breakfast was excellent value.
Swimming pool good; but the outdoor jacuzzi was dirty.

We wanted a place to stay reasonably close to Yosemite without the crowds or hefty price of staying in the park, this fit the ticket! Clean, friendly staff, good full breakfast included comfortable beds, large room and only 20 minute drive into the park! Nothing fancy, priced right.Plenty of restaurants in the area and shopping centers with grocery stores.The only negative was a stopped up bath tub drain they had fixed in less than 20 minutes of our reporting it and kept us advised as to when it would be taken care of. Will come again.

I booked this hotel to be close to Yosemite. It is 20 min away from it, so you can access the Sequoia grove very easily.
The hotel is ok, nothing fancy but all you need is there. The bed was good, the bathroom clean, the room fairly large with a flat screen TV. The A/C was a bit difficult to use since you had to manually adjust it.
A good point is the free breakfast which allows you to get going quickly to Yosemite without an extra stop! Breakfast is standard, with the usual toasts, eggs, and a waffle machine (which is nice!).
