Car packed and we're off farewelling the big trees. We head towards gold mining country with the plan to visit Columbia State Historic Park, before heading into Sonora for the night. It's about 3.5 hours driving time so we get on the way. The boys entertain us with their singing we just wish they would expand their repotoire, as the same 2 songs …
Nach dem etwas planlosen gestrigen Tag, haben wir es bei der Abreise aus SF wieder etwas ordentlicher zugehen lassen. Wir haben Sacramento aus Mangel an tagesfüllenden Aktivitäten links liegen lassen und uns in Richtung Yosemite National Park orientiert.
Auf der Fahrt und im Park sind ein paar traumhafte Bilder …
After driving all day through the winding hwy 49 it was finally time to make Sonora, CA our home for the night. We checked into the hotel and then headed out to town to see if we could get the family fed and quickly...so we landed at Carl's Jr for our gourmet dinner.
We headed back to the hotel and the whole family went to the pool for a …
... is where the fires swept through, the town itself is ok but there is a burnt smell everywhere and as we set off to do our first bit of exploring of the park it was nothing but depressing. Miles and miles of burnt trees. We entered the park only to find most of it closed because of the fires and then it started hailing!! The fog came flying back in again and as we got higher and higher the rain turned to snow. Admitting defeat ...
... in the valleys. We are literally in the middle of nowhere, we are 5600ft above sea level, there is no signal and no shops, we eventually found a small restaurant and a garage to get some snacks to store in our room, the roads have no street lights, so we are not driving anywhere this evening. Our chalet log cabin and the surrounding forests are very picturesque. We are leaving early tomorrow morning, it is a 6 hour drive down to Los ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Sonora Oaks Hotel & Conference Center
Wouldn't stay here again. The room was big enough, but needed new carpet and paint. Maid needed to pay attention to the cobwebs & bugs behind and above door. Also, maid left our door open all day on Saturday. We stayed on the bottom floor and confirmed why I usually ask for the top floor. I don't know what the people above us were doing exactly on Saturday night between 10-2, but it sounded like someone was running a marathon and running a bath constantly.
The restaurant served a decent breakfast.
I booked this hotel on the internet based on others ratings. I can only say that were most disappointed. The hotel was the most expensive and least appointed of all the hotels we booked for our California vacation.
What I expected from a BW
This hotel is an above average hotel in the area. It may well be the best hotel in the area. Reasonable beds and clean room. Room was large with standard furnishings. Nothing fancy but adequate.
This is a great base for exploring the gold rush country. About 2 hours to Yosemite.
Pool Was Disgusting
The room was OK but the pool was disgusting. It was a hot summer day, end of July, when we were there. We got ready to go for a swim, but when we got to the pool, it was murky, thick, dirty, and looked like a stagnant pond. We just sat around the pool in our swim suits sweating out the summer heat staring at the pool wishing we could go in.
Great value and comfortable
We stayed one night in April. The room was clean and good-sized. Staff were friendly and courteous. Breakfast was a good buffet - loads of choice and a sensible sized restaurant (many other hotels just use a converted room, which is often very cramped). The free internet connection in reception is a nice touch.
The hotel is located close to a large choice of fast-food restaurants.
Large rooms provided
Large, clean, spacious and comfortable room. Hotel provided a kingsize bed and sofa bed which was perfect for our family. Breakfast was fine with the usual bagels, muffins, cereals etc, although there could have been more table and chairs provided. Our children enjoyed the pool. Found the staff friendly. The Pine Tree restaurant adjacent provided good value food and plenty of it.
Large enough for family of 4
My family and I recently stayed in one of the oversize rooms with king bed and queen sofa sleeper and had more room than a suite! The room was clean, staff very friendly, and adjacent restaurant convenient and reasonably priced. It served as a great 'home base' for a weekend of sledding on the mountain. We would definitely stay there again.
A clean, insect free, comfy accomodation with friendly service next to a good restaurant in nice area.
Nice hotel, quiet location yet close to shopping, restaurants, etc.
Room is spacious. There is a on-site restaurant.
Gigantic rooms but weak heating
My only major complaint with this hotel was that the heat in my room was too weak to properly heat the huge space. Normall getting a big room is a perk but in this case, my companion and I were left shivering under blankets at night. That said, it is a decent option for the area and the employees were nice. It is about a 10-15 minute drive to downtown Sonora but is right off the state highway so there are some fast-food places nearby if you get in late.
