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.

The motel was very clean with a well equipped room. Staff was friendly at check-in and check-out. The breakfast selection was wonderful at a restuarant on site.

At best this is a two-star hotel. It's an old-fashioned hotel. Good for an overnight stay on the way to Yosemite. The staff is great, very helpful. The breakfast voucher for the restaurant was great!

Good customer service. The room was clean, and quiet. It was perfect!! The restaurant next to the hotel made it easier for me.

The room was comfy and the bed especially so. A comfortable bed and good pillows are a must for us. That's why we usually choose Best Western. We were a bit disappointed that the restaurant next door was closed for a private party because that meant we just ate our microwave popcorn for dinner (we brought it from home). We were too tired to go out again looking for another restaurant and didn't want to do room service. Although the breakfast at the restaurant was OK, the service was very slow and we had to send back some of our food that was undercooked. We prefer hotels that have their own breakfast area on site that isn't shared with other patrons.

Clean comfortable accommodations, FULL Breakfast, not cheap continental....

Nice big room. Great breakfast. Helpful staff at front desk. We visited Columbia, Jamestown, Twain Harte, and several others.

Super friendly staff. Room was ok but nothing fancy.

Watching the full moon rise Over our private balcony facing the woods was an unexpected delight! Both the free glass of wine and full breakfast were much appreciated.

pleasant stay, clean rooms and helpful staff good breakfast included

No complaints and lots of kudos! The staff here work hard to maintain a safe, clean and comfortable hotel. The rooms are big and have everything we needed and then some. Bravo!

We spent 3 nights here on our vacation. These folks work really hard to provide clean, safe, comfortable and friendly lodgings. We were greeted with a smile and an accommodating check in. The room was spacious, clean and full of practical useful amenities. The staff at Sonora Oaks could give other hotels and motel a lessons in how to create and maintain a guest centered hotel.
