The room was very comfortable and quite. Traveling by myself with dogs for a dog show, I need to feel safe and protected. This hotel offered both. The grounds were clean and well lite. When I checked in they had dog bowls, balls, cookies and poop bags. It was great.

I Spent a night in this hotel for visiting the Yosemite. The place is near the Yosemite. So you can stay here for one night and then start your trip in Yosemite on the next day. The breakfast is delicious.

We stayed here one night with our small dog. The room was very spacious and near to areas of use to a pet. The people at the desk gave us a little dog bowl with a toy and some other things, what a nice/smart touch. The free breakfast came in the form of a voucher for a restaurant next door...

Clean, Comfy, and great breakfast. We needed a late check in (got in @ 3am) and it was the only one in the area that would allow it. I'm happy we chose Best Western. The staff at check in and out were so nice.

We are happy to offer a late check-out, if possible. We also offer an early check-in, if our rooms are available. We will share that the rooms were clean and the full hot served breakfast was enjoyed. Thank you, so much! Christopher Link General Manager

Friendly staff. Excellent, updated, clean, large room. The complimentary full-cooked breakfast at the restaurant on the property was very good, but it took almost 30 minutes to receive because of so many people there. However, I would still wholeheartedly recommend staying at this BW.

The bottom line for this hotel is its absolutely quiet. Worth its weight in gold. The breakfast is excellent and on Tuesday and Thursday's they have the managers reception with hors devours and 2 free drinks. The hotel is located a bit of a distance from Sonora but for the quiet it is worth it.

We must be crazy! Free served hot breakfast and a free Managers Reception! We are pleased that our guests enjoy these special offerings. We are only 2 ½ miles from busy downtown historic Sonora, which is why we are so quiet. The setting in the grove of ancient Valley Oaks is beautiful and tranquil, but we are close to all...

We recently stayed at the Best Western Plus in Sonora for two nights while visiting Yosemite NP. The hotel is located just off CA-108 and within a couple miles of stores and services in Sonora.

Thank you for the great review! Very detailed and accurate. Although the full hot served sit-down breakfast is limited to 6 popular items, guests can apply a $5.00 credit to anything on the menu.

We stopped by Best Western Sonora to put up for a night when visiting Yosemite National Park with family during labor day weekend. One thing that stood out in the entire experience was how large their rooms were. Rooms were also neat and had basic amenities like TV, fridge, coffee maker, microwave, and other toiletries.

We first stayed here 4yrs ago and had a great time so it was an easy choice to come back. Efficient check in and nice rooms - nothing special but big comfy beds and a good shower. We spent some time in the pool and hot tub which helped wind down from the drive over the Tioga Pass.
