Modesto, California
Reviewed 24 October 2016

Nice rooms, quiet, out of town, but close enough to go into town if you want to. Good restaurant right next door. Not a gourmet restaurant, but better than a Denny's for example. Great selection of breakfast items.

We stayed here while visiting Yosemite. The hotel and the rooms are nice, clean and adequate. We got free breakfast at the restaraunt attached. They are very busy in the morning and the staff can be rude.

We flew out from Waco Texas for our oldest daughters wedding this past weekend in Sonora and stayed at the Best Western. The service was first class, the room very clean, and the breakfast at the restaurant was five star.

Was in town for five days and the staff at the hotel us great. The rooms were fine and the bed very comfortable. The restaurant serves a great breakfast. I would stay again, but would request a first floor room. In order to be a "plus" Best Western, I would think it would have an elevator.
