Overpriced hotel

Although I had a good night rest the quality definitely did not reflect price paid for. Breakfast offered was the worst as food did not taste fresh.

Becoming a family tradition

Pros: The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. This establishment is family-friendly. We love it!
Cons: The outside stairs and 2nd floor walkways need to be refreshed and updated.
Location: Leland Snow Park, Dodge Ridge Ski Resort, downtown Sonora with many restaurants
The rooms were clean & comfortable. The staff was friendly and very accommodating! They went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed. Best Western in Sonora has become our go-to hotel for our snow trips. The hotel stay includes a full breakfast. The portions are huge! And delicious. It is great for a family!

Stay was just fine. Even though the facility is a little dated, it was clean and had nice "extras", such as free cocktails one evening and a restaurant close by. We stayed two evenings and would use this hotel again, if in the area.

Comfortable rooms lots of space

Staff could be gracious Rooms are comfy, clean, with plenty of amenities and space. The restaurant food is in need of an oil change I.e. The foes tasted like the hash browns which also tasted like the corned beef hash, like old grease.

Centrally located in Sonora, Ca.

Pros: Great complimentary breakfast options, large room, clean, comfortable, quiet, easily controlled temperature inside the rooms, nice bathrooms.
Cons: Covered stairs leading to second floor rooms, ability to have restaurant breakfast delivered to room.
Location: Centrally located in Sonora, Ca. Close to downtown. Not far from ski resort.
The room was large and clean. Nice amenities inside of the room. The complimentary breakfast options from the restaurant next door were exceptional. Only thing missing was the ability to have the meal delivered to your room. No elevators and the stairs are outside and uncovered even though our room was inside the building. It was raining and we were soaked when walking up and down the stairs from our room. Overall it was quiet and clean which is the most important when needing to sleep out of town.

SnowCon2015

The Best Western Plus Sonora Oaks was a fantastic hotel for our impromptu (9person) weekend convention. The location is within an hour of snow, the staff are very kind/helpful, the rooms are HUGE (and were pet friendly for some folks in our group), and free breakfast at the on site restaurant was way more than just continental bagels/cereal. Overall this was the perfect hotel for our needs and went above and beyond our expectations. We look forward to returning next year!

We were on our way to visit Yosemite.

Pros: Pleasant, clean and very comfortably cool for a good night's rest.
Cons: Replace the mattress cover on our bed.
Location: Our hotel was off the beaten path; was very quiet for sleeping. We stopped at Schnoogs Café for coffee and muffins. Good coffee and tasty treats!
Our stay at Best Western was very pleasant. The room was clean and inviting. We walked over to the nearby restaurant to have our dinner. We chose from the senior menu; the meal was tasty and adequate. We slept well and used our voucher for breakfast. We enjoyed our meal and coffee/tea. We had a pleasant stay. The hotel clerk was helpful in providing places to go for coffee. Sonora is a quaint town that had some cool places to visit but alas, our time was limited as our goal was to visit Yosemite for the day and then drive home to southern California. While checking out I mentioned to the clerk that our bed mattress cover had shrunk and the bedding didn't stay in place. I mentioned this to the hotel clerk and she said she'd notify the maid to replace it immediately.
