Nice rooms, comfy beds, very nice service staff, all around great place!

our stay was very pleasant and the staff were very accomidating for us

Good value and convenient!stayed on NYE, breakfast was great!

Good location before visiting Yosemite. 30 minutes from Pinecrest. Clean and quiet.

Nice hotel, good breakfast.friendly staff.felt comfortable during the stay.

Fantastic hotel with very friendly staff! Very clean and the best free breakfast staff ever.

This is a very ordinary motel. The room decor is very plain, but they do have a microwave and small refrigerator. There is nothing wrong with respect to comfort, cleanliness, quality of free breakfast, or friendliness of staff. But it is far more expensive than a room of this type should be.

It was a quick stay bed was a bit too soft for our taste but overall it was nice.

May have been cheaper to call the hotel direct. Nice clean room in a good location for exploring the gold country surrounding Sonora. Had a hot tub although it was a little cold to go outside in a swimsuit. Thanks for the great suggestion it was fun to go there and spend some time for a holiday. The polar express Jamestown is a must. Also Murchpys and columbia state park are fun too. A bonus was Mercer Caverns tour of the cave. Had a great time. Yatataatatara hahaha mullaha.

Sonora is a cool area, this hotel is near everything. comfortable, quiet and an excellent included breakfast.

Loved, loved , loved the free breakfast. Nice hotel. Could have softer pillows, that's my only suggestion.

We picked this place last minute for a quick getaway to Yosemite. The room was clean, the room had a nice balcony table in the back with the view of the pool. They even had a free social hour that offered free drinks and appetizers, and a voucher for free breakfast the next morning at the nearby restaurant. We definitely enjoyed our stay here, check it out!

It is nice Hotel. very Friendly staff. Complimentary Breakfast is very good. It doesn't have elevator, so if your room is upstairs, then you have to carry luggage and for elders, it is a problem.

Briefly speaking, the hotel is old, terrible, and nasty. Literally, everything inside the room was disgusting, old, and not clean enough. Towels were smelly and quite old. The room was not clean enough - when my phone dropped behind the bad, oh my God, I would better not to see what was there. The room was also noisy because of the terrible and old A/C. When A/C is turned off, the room emerges old grandma smells. We decided to stay in this hotel because we could not find better options when we traveled to Yosemite National Park, which is stunning by the way. Do not make the same mistake as we did! Find something else to stay. After this hotel, I will never ever stop at Best Western.

Terrible experience. Had a non smoking room where people were smoking just outside the entry door that filtered in and smelled. Awakened several times by drunk, rude guests who were there for a wedding. We had to call the front desk several times. They responded, but the loud guests continued until we had to confront them ourselves. Not a restful night....

Very friendly and helpful staff. Stayed in two different rooms and both were very comfortable. Nice balcony on one of them. Close to shopping malls and restaurants. Issued a voucher for breakfast at restaurant next door at check in. Valid from 7am to 11 am. Not short hours like some places. Food was excellent. Great experience all around.

Everything was perfect. The room great and the food was excellent.

Staff very welcoming. Good location for visits to Columbia, Rail Museum, and Yosemite. A few minutes drive from the local amenities and one or two are within walking distance.

The room was excellent and the full breakfast at the adjoining restaurant was great. There were plenty of parking spots for the motel, but it was a little challenging for parking a full size pickup.
