Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Inn Yosemite Area Oakhurst
Nice and comfortable, tasty breakfast, expensive phone calls !
We needed a basic place to explore Yosemite National Park and this did the job. There was a special rate of $60US per night and the room was large enough, with free wi-fi internet. Only one thing to beware of - DON'T USE THE PHONE !!
I called reception to see how much a call to Israel or Australia would be, the person was unhelpful and told me to check with the network !? We made 2 overseas calls, each less than 5 minutes and each costing $16US.
Anyway, they served a great breakfast with nice pastries , fruit and really good quakers oatmeal.
For a two stars, it's excellent.
too bad the walls are thin paper, we could hear all the others rooms.
We put on the fan of the A/C and we were able to cover the sounds coming from the others rooms.
Bed could more comfortable.
overall, it was very clean, great bathroom, looks to be recently renovated
An okay stay
Decent place to stay near Yosemite
Stayed here with my wife and brother-in-law as a base for a short visit to Yosemite.
The 2-3 staff members I had contact with were pleasant and helpful. The rooms were clean, but just starting to show their age. The beds were fine, sheets were clean, and linens were not worn or outdated. There was a small pool and hot tub that I did not use, but they looked clean and I saw a maintenance person treating and cleaning it both mornings of my stay. The continental breakfast was the typical assortment of danishes, cereal, breads, coffee, and juice. There seemed to be plenty of food, but the seats in the lobby filled up fast so some people were left to stand or bring food back to their rooms.
Oakhurst has ample grocery stores and restaurants, so supplies were conveniently found. Not everything is within walking distance in this town, but most of what you would need can be found on the main road that the motel is on.
We chose this motel based on price. Some local places have lower rates, but not being from the area we wanted to stick with a known chain. This was considerably cheaper than the lodges and inns closer to and inside Yosemite, but the drive to the park is long and curvy and can take an hour to get to the valley, so it may be worth the extra cost to avoid the daily drive into the park.
I would have no problem staying here again, aside from the drive. The motel facility is not top of the line, but is very suitable as a base for Yosemite day trips.
An OK place for a trip to Yosemite
Used Oakhurst as our base while visiting Yosemite which is less than 20 miles away. Hotel is on the older side, but was overall clean. Some items in the room were way past thier time for replacement (toilet seat for example!). While seat was not dirty, it was "bubbling" in places and could have been replaced very inexpensively. You would be surprised what replacing that minor room item could have done to boost my overall impression of the room :-). Anyway....property is a collection of two story buildings connected by a courtyard and breezeways. Small pool in courtyard with pretty garden setting. Outer facing rooms have lovely mountain views, while courtyard rooms face the pool/whilrpool. They were re-paving the parking lot during our stay and spaces were scarce. Was a bit inconvenient as we were reluctant to leave our spot and possibly not find one upon our return. There is a Chinese restaurant across the parking lot which is not much to look at but had terrific food. There are several restaurants in walking distance, and the center of Oakhurst with more dining/shopping options is just a 2 minute drive away. Continental breakfast is served in the large lobby but is pretty limited. Coffee/tea/hot chocolate is available in lobby around the clock. Room has small fridge which was convenient. Don't expect luxury...but it is a clean place to sleep within a half hour drive to Yosemite.
Stay somewhere else
Staff downright rude or simply clueless. We stayed here on our way to Yosemite and will never stay here again.
We stayed at the Comfort Inn on our way to Yosemite. Our bid was accepted through Priceline. We arrived late and the night staff was very nice. The lobby is also a lovely gift shop and spacious continental breakfast area, with gleaming dark wood and big windows. Our room was immaculate and decorated with rich deep colors and thick, textured neutral wallpaper. There was a refrigerator, which we were happy to see. Also, we were glad that they accepted pets ($10 fee). All in all, we left with a very good opinion of Oakhurst in general.
Great for Government/Military Personnel
Our group rented 3 rooms during our visit to Yosemite in June, 2004. We found the rooms clean and comfortable. The staff was very competent. We qualified for the government/military rate which saved us almost half the cost of the regular rate. We enjoyed the good restaurants and quaint shops in Oakhurst. We would stay again.
Great Place Near Yosemite
The Comfort Inn Oakhurst was a clean, well-kept motel. We needed a place to stay convenient to Yosemite, and it fit our need. A continental breakfast was included. Oakhurst has restaurants, shopping, gas stations, etc. I would recommend.
Not so hot for us
We came to this motel because of priceline and they accepted our bid.
The receptionist pointed out that we got a low bid and I felt uncomfortable. The first room had a leaky tub and had not been cleaned well if at all. The second room reeked of smoke and I had to get febreeze from housekeeping who also had to do some touch up cleaning in this room! Sue the head housekeeper was great and apologetic which is more than I can say for any of the staff I met over our four day stay.
If I hadn't gotten the rooms at rock bottom prices I would have asked for a refund! I have no idea how they could get away with charging up to $225. I wouldn't stay here again if it were free!
Gateway to Yosemite
Comfort Inn, Oakhurst is excellent. Very good location at top of town. Short walk to shops. First class motel, decor and cleanliness of rooms very good, breakfast was good with pastries etc. We felt safe. Pool very good. It is ideal for an overtime stop as there is not a lot to do during the day. We stayed overnight on our way to Yosemite. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would stay there again. Very pretty little town. Good rates.

ZZZZZZZZ...vi er trætte i dag.
Mange dage med masser af indtryk hver dag har sat sit spor på energiniveauet, og det var VIRKELIG svært at nå op til morgenmaden, inden de lukkede kl. 10, så i dag holder vi dovnedag ved poolen, og det er skøøøøøøønt! Vi har den hele næsten for os selv!

Stod op til den flotteste udsigt over bjergene ved Mammoth Lakes. Det er ikke svært at forestille sig, at området er et fantastisk skiområde om vinteren. Her er virkeligt smukt og hotellet er bare hyggeligt. Lidt ærgerligt, at vi allerede skal videre i dag, men på den anden side, så er temperaturen sneget sig ned på 13 grader, så vi må videre efter …
Early breakfast at ihop, great pancakes there! Then made the drive over the Golden Gate Bridge this morning, fun to drive over and very surreal being on it, its sooo big! We didn't cycle it as i'd planned after yesterdays epic walking effort :) Didn't have sore legs like we'd expected though. We made a last minute decision to visit the AT&T …

The Sequoias we saw at Grants Grove were huge, but unfortunately, unlike Redwood National Park, the Kings Canyon National Park trails all had fences around the Sequoias so you couldn't really get close to them.
