The staff was very friendly. The view from the room was very nice, ocean view. The beds were nice, then linens seems to have been updated. As others have said, the bathroom areas need updating. We felt aade

The view is really nice. You can see the Pacific across the street. At dusk, the sunset behind the old train trestle is rather lovely. That said, this is an older property. While it looks like it has new paint and windows, it's a bit rough around the edges. The property is quite safe and secure-feeling. The staff was truly helpful and really nice. I'd definitely stay here again.

Great view and room. Convenient location! Nice bed!

Overlooked the Pudding Creek.

The motel is ok. I dont have anything positive to note that stood out. We were very surprised there was no microwave, i have never stayed at a motel that didnt and certainly expected best western to have one. This made it challenging with our child and i feel it made us spend more on food than we usually do. Front desk service was mediocre, when we went swimming we seemed like a bother asking for towels, and when we asked for an extra he responded "we need to make sure we have enough for everyone" in a rude tone. My thoughts are, if 1 extra towel is going to be a problem, then this motel must not be prepared for its guests. Not the service ive ever experienced at a best western in th past. Also, the balconies have ZERO privacy, like your basically sitting with random strangers out there. Theyre connected by open bars. We will not be staying here again. To be honest motel 6 is similar but much cheaper, and all rooms have a microwave!

Older property that definitely needs updating. Cleanliness was questionable given age of furnishings.

The views were excellent. A peaceful location and just two minute walk to the beach! Hotel just a room, but clean and cozy.

Older hotel, decent room. Pool undergoing renovations. Staff is polite. Road work going on next to hotel so expect some traffic.

Nice cottage room, 3 bedroom and fully equipped kitchen are great for family gathering.

I did not give 5 stars..The room was clean, but it was hot! No aircondition, and for a pregnant woman who’s about to give birth next week needed it most, i was sweating in the middle of the night so i took a cardboard and fanned myself @3am! First time to stay in a room without airconditioning!

The lady at the checkout was nice and polite. Cehcin was quick and easy. Breakfast was good. Would stay again.

Ocean view that you pay more for is not what is pictured, it’s actally a view of a bridge with some visible waves peeking through. Very misleading in description and pictures

Hotel was very helpful in helping us check in early due to an event just down the street. Hotel was also right across the street from the beach, very clean, & the staff was very friendly. We will definitely be coming back here. Thank you!

No parking, migrants staying in hotel . Dirty floors, old sheets on bed.

It's difficult to stay very close to Yosemite, so Oakhurst on the very south side is an option. Vista Manor "lodge" is a nice enough older Best Western motel (2 stars?); better than some I've stayed at. Good location since it's on the YARTS bus line to Yosemite. Motel has several separate buildings built on a hill so quite a bit of steep walking up and down to restaurant, lobby, bus stop. Quiet area and quiet room; could park right outside my door. Didn't see any breakfast set out in the lobby, just coffee. Staff was ok but not exactly friendly; maybe they are sick of tourists by mid-July? Room was nice enough; had a view of the pool. Pool was clean and cool and very nice on a hot sunny afternoon; small deck around didn't have enough lounge chairs for everyone. Restaurant was pretty good. Overall, it's a good option for Yosemite.

Staff was friendly. Minor issue checking in with our room keys, but other than that our stay was great. We had a wonderful view of the ocean, balcony off room, wonderful breakfast options, and nice indoor pool. The beds were very comfortable. Parking was easy. Location is easy to get to- be cautious of massive pot holes at hotel's entrance. Grounds were nicely kept. Lobby was clean. Room was very clean.

Lovely property, generally very quiet. Cross Hwy. 1 and you are at the beach and miles of walking trails. Big beautiful windows look out onto the ocean. There is some noise from the highway, but the view more than compensates. Just bring earplugs.
