Okay, so we stayed at this hotel for 4 days on a vacation to Yosemite. The rooms were cozy and had a cool cabin theme. There was a big fireplace and 3 large beds. We went in a group of 5, and we weren't squeezed together. The only problem I could really find was the freezing cold showers. Anyway, the complementary breakfast was great, and they had a nice selection. The location was even better though, with Lewis Creek trailhead being a few miles away. And you can't forget Yosemite. 4 stars total, and I recommend this place to anyone who plans on going to Yosemite.

We had a great stay at the Sierra Sky Ranch in Oakhurst during a recent trip to Yosemite National Park. The hotel is about 1 hour from both Yosemite's Tunnel View and Glacier Point if you leave early enough to beat traffic. (We left the hotel around 5 am each day of our visit.) The beds were incredibly comfortable, though the pillows could use an upgrade. Room size was good and having a balcony was a nice addition, especially to hang wet towels and bathing suits after using the pool. We could hear the people next to us, but that's how it is with every hotel anymore. Bring some ear plugs and you'll be fine. We took advantage of the complimentary coffee each morning and also enjoyed the hot chocolate one night, but we left before the breakfast so I cannot say anything about that. It was too bad the restaurant was closed, but I highly recommend South Gate Brewing in Oakhurst for lunch or dinner as an alternative! Overall, we really only used the hotel to sleep and get ready so we could spend very full days at Yosemite, and the hotel did everything we needed it to do. It's not quite at a "resort" level if you plant to spend the whole day there, but is was great for those of us who just need a great place to sleep and recharge at the end of a long day.
