    « Amazing Staff and Amenities »

    I travel to Oakdale for Business Several times a month and always stay at the Best Western Rama Inn! The staff is excellent and provide great friendly service. Almost like a second family now! Highly recommended!!

    « Would come back-Family Christmas-Relocation »

    First thing I have to mention is one of the staff members who went over and above. We travel a lot so we know hotels, service etc. Her name is Kandi and I called the hotel a week before our trip as we were going to be there meeting kids and grandkids who were transferred to the area and we were all staying in hotels including on Christmas day. I wanted to know if any local restaurants would be open on Christmas that I may not have found on Google. She was busy working but asked if she could get back to me that afternoon after she was off work. And she did with some options, the phone numbers-she also had called them herself and gave extra info I might need to know. I did get to meet and talk to her while we were there and got to thank her in person for her above and beyond help. She is always working when you see her, when the phones and lobby are not busy she's folding laundry or sweeping or cleaning something, always keeping busy. I hope her bosses and best western know what a gem they have in her. If she wants it make her a manager and either way this lady deserves a raise. We had a king suite at a cost less than a regular room and it was very nice and comfortable including the bed. Decent free continental breakfast with a few choices, changes daily so if you are there for an extended stay you'll get some variety. Nice heated pool and conveniently located to anything you could need.

    « family trip »

    Very good service and rooms were clean The pool was very nice and relaxing after a long travel We were new to the area and they were very helpful with anything we requested. The breakfast was good but the average hotel breakfast We stayed 4 days and were very happy

    « Very Disappointed »

    I am very upset and cannot reach anyone about our experience. This hotel listed at $106.00 a night so we clicked into it and naturally it went up $30.00. It shouldn't list at a price it isn't but that isn't my problem. We accepted it but when my husband got to the hotel at 5:00 P.M. they said they had no room for him with a King bed. I had to pay extra for it on the sight. I sent him our receipt showing that I paid $147.00 for this room. They said that there was nothing they could do and that if he wanted it he had to pay another $18.00 dollars for it. That is trickery and a rip off!!

    « Glorified super 8 »

    I don't think I've ever been told upon arrival that my reservation quote was wrong and that it had been changed to $20 more. Though the carpet in the decor was nice, the door to the stairs across the Wasteland, emergency lighting was making some type of screaming sound, and the door to the bathroom at a spring in the hinge that sounded like an outhouse door every time it closed

    « Great Value Spot »

    We spent the night at this hotel on our way to SAN Francisco from Yosemite. The hotel was very clean, staff super friendly and the room was comfy. I was very impressed by the value of this hotel. If we were staying more than one night I would have asked to be moved. Our room was across from the pool and the sounds of children playing and screaming could be heard In our room. The next morning all we could hear was stomping above us. It sounded like someone was doing an aerobic workout above us. If it wasn't for the noise issues, this would have been a great experience.

    « Home Away From Home »

    Excellent Staff, Super Breakfast and Housekeeping Excellence are three major reasons to stay here ... in addition to the indoor pool, sauna, and spa!! This is an unbelievable bargain in price for the service and cleanliness of this hotel ... Owners do an excellent job of choosing employees who make you feel like you are family, and employees always have a pleasant answer to questions and never see problems, but view them as opportunities to shine with solutions!! Best Best Western I have stayed at in the last decade!


    Best hotel in Oakdale Ca. Quiet, clean and comfortable, rates are reasonable. Get a suite if your traveling with friends, little sitting area when you enter the room with large counter and sink, little fridge and microwave with own TV and sofa bed.

    « Awesome pit stop amazing value »

    We stayed in one of the suites with an in room hot tub and I'll say after hiking around Yosemite for a couple days this was just perfect (extra $25 and worth every penny) . Hotel is half way between Yosemite and San Francisco and a perfect location to spend the night. Good restaurants around found a delicious Mexican place about a mile west on the south side of the street. Super Super Clean comfortable beds and cant beat the price. I read some bad reviews from the same group and it seems they may have been trying to get something for free because this hotel was spotless.

    « Wedding Rooms »

    Good value, great staff, very helpful with a large wedding party staying at the hotel. Clean, property was in great shape. Good stay. Needed early check in for multiple room due to wedding party, staff was very helpful and we got in early.

    « Overnight pre-Yosemite NP »

    Good clean place to stay on the way to Yosemite. The front desk people did a professional job and make check-in easy. The room was close to the front and near the breakfast area. Glad we made reservations as I saw people being turned away. Breakfast was ok for an early start on the way to the park. Was tired on arrival so really can't rate the room or service very well.

    « Oakdale Best Western »

    We stayed at this hotel coming and leaving Yosemite. It is a clean and updated facility. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The staff was helpful and professional. The breakfast isn't great but there are many options and you can cobble together an adequate start to your day.

    « Average Is Not a Bad Thing »

    Hotel was just plain average, The staff did their job including mopping the floor in the reception area; the breakfast was edible; the rooms were comfortable and the shower was hot. The price was within our budget. Lengthy trip to Sierra Mountains, but no hotels available in Sonora. All in all, we hoped for a clean hotel with easy access at a reasonable price and that is exactly what we got, so, average is not a bad thing.

    « Greta stay! »

    Truly enjoyed our stay at the Best Western (Oakdale, CA). My children wanted to swim and the pool was great. I enjoyed the sauna and of course we all enjoyed the free internet and breakfast. i would recommend this Best Western to anyone that was not their way to Yosemite as we were.

    « Great stop-off motel for travelling »

    We're a family of 3 adults and 2 teens (15 & 16) on a US touring holiday & were en route from San Fransisco to LA. We used this motel as a pre-booked stage for one night. We booked a single room with 2 Queen beds and a fold-out/sofa bed through Check in was excellent: smooth, polite and efficient. The room itself was excellent: spotlessly clean, large flat TV, 'fridge and microwave/coffee machine. TV had premium channels, including HBO. We had a peaceful, comfortable night's sleep. Morning offers a basic breakfast with cereals, coffee, juice, etc. There's ample room in the breakfast area. I did notice that the supervisor turned off the TV and breakfast machines a little early; I guess a subtle way of telling guests that breakfast time is over! There's a pool, gymn, etc, which we didn't use. No bar or restaurant. we got a takeaway pizza from a pizza shop right across the road. Can recommend this motel.

    « Not a good experience »

    Arrived for a 2 night stay after 3 pm, room was not ready then at 9 am the next morning was told I would have to move rooms due to a mistake The room they put us in was requested. No help moving rooms and to top it off there is no parking at this hotel they let many work trucks and equipment double park I complained to manager and customer service but all they could say was sorry!

    « Excellent »

    Very large Best Western motel in a main road. No noise inside the room. Beautifully decorated room, large and spacious. Decent bathroom. Large heated indoor pool, very appreciated. Huge breakfast room (meeting hall?) With a decent choice, table could be a bit cleaner. Recommended

    « Exciting trip turned sour »

    Planned an exciting water rafting trip with my family. Upon check in, was discriminated instantaneously, not racially. If you stay here, make sure you are up to THEIR standards. Booked a king suite, room was very large, living room area big enough for extra guests, jacuzzi was clean, breakfast was amazing but hotel staff were very judgemental.

    « Stay »

    In town for family reunion. sad ot have our bath leaking water onto floor. Yikes , desk did not know what to do, so we suggestd they move us or fix it with plumber! Duh. they sent a plumber who fixed the problem, but dripped dirty water onto the room carpet. yuck. Oh well, Oakdale is a sweet town.

    « A good stopover on route to Yosemite from San Francisco. »

    A clean, spacious and convienetly located hotel in a nice area. Several restaurants nearby as well as supermarkets and other shops. Breakfast was good with plenty of choices. Friendly and helpful staff.

    « Great Stop Between Yosemite and San Jose »

    We picked this hotel based on location between Yosemite and San Jose Airport where we would be flying back to Charlotte the next day. The hotel was nice, clean, and a good value for the price. Not very special, but nice. Very nice staff, nice that breakfast was served early enough that we could eat before we left around 7:30.

    « Great hotel...wrong room »

    Overall clean and comfortable, well run, but did not get the room that I paid for. Great pool, very clean, and sauna. The breakfast was good, kept us going. Stayed here when we were on the way to Yosemite National Park. Just double check your reservation, to be sure that you get the room that you signed up for.

    « Great Option if Leaving Yosemite »

    We picked this hotel because we scheduled a long day in Yosemite and didn't feel up to driving back to San Francisco. Location was perfect for that and surprisingly, there were several food options nearby. The hotel is at the beginning of town, so don't worry if you come from highway 120 and don't see anything before it. Hotel was clean, new looking, and comfortable. Front desk check in person was friendly and gave us a good dinner recommendation. The hot tub seemed fine at first, but I think they need to check the chemical levels more often. My daughter and I both had burning eyes after a few minutes in it, which is not normally a problem for us. Breakfast was good, not great. They ran out of meat and eggs, although we had at least 30 minutes before it ended. The staff was aware and working to replenish it, but when they did they brought such a small quantity not everyone waiting was able to get what they wanted. If the hotel can get more help in the morning or cook larger quantities, their guest's experience will improve greatly.

    « I would stay here anytime! »

    Great service, nice clean rooms and an indoor pool. Coffee is always available for my early morning departures and when I have the time, a nice breakfast is a wonderful way to start my day. Only drawback is it sits right on Hwy 120 - but I have never been bothered by any street noise.

    « Home away from home »

    Always a pleasure to stay at the Rama Inn, when visiting the Oakdale area. The staff is has always been helpful and friendly. Since we come here every year for our kids camps; we have become a familiar face to them. Great place to stay when on vacation.

    « Overall good »

    After an easy check in and good advice from the front desk to park in the back and take the stairs instead of elevator, to avoid the long walk, the room was in good clean condition, bathroom was also very nice. Between the gym, indoor pool and location next to food and grocery, it is pretty nice. The breakfast offered in the morning could use a pick me up, but over all it was a good stay. Just don't be surprised Monday mornings at 4AM when the gardener outside your window fires up his leaf blower at 4am, and a few car alarms as well.

    « What a blessing this place was! »

    We travelled from Mariposa through Yosemite to this place - in 38 degrees. Large car park and foyer, air conditioned entrance and a smiling, welcoming, helpful gentleman on the desk. Couldn't have asked for a better welcome. Made polite conversation, checked us in efficiently and explained facilities clearly. Initially booked into a room right next to the drinks machines (far too noisy) we were moved without question to a room on another floor, opposite end to the machines (they're on every floor). There wasn't a lot in Oakdale so we made use of the pool/jaccuzi/sauna for 2-3 hours. Wonderful - just what we needed to recover from the journey and the heat. Walked through the town to explore a little, ate at the Mexican place opposite the hotel. Slept well. Shower great, room clean and spacious, very comfortable beds. Breakfast plentiful and relaxing. Highly recommended. Special mention to the guy on the desk through the night - who also helped me figure out the room's coffee machine!

    « oakdale best western »

    typical best western facility but great staff....particularly shawn.. he went out of his way to accomodate our group and made it a very pleasureable experience. the complimentary bkfst was also well served by ?..... all in all, a quality experience!

    « Good budget hotel between the Bay area and Yosemite NP »

    Close enough to Yosemite NP, and a good mid-way point to-from the Bay Area. Loved their swimming pool/jacuzzi/sauna area. The room was basic, with fridge and microwave. We were given a handicap-accessible room, which was fine. Since there was no tub, the water overflows to the sink and toilet area whenever someone takes a shower. We only stayed for 1 night, but it was uncomfortable having a wet floor whenever you use the bathroom. Basic (complimentary) breakfast.

    « No AAA Discount »

    Worst experience in a Best Western ever, starting with refusing a AAA discount. Room was OK with some poor lighting and TV problems, but not worth the money paid. Really loud and irritating fan noise in bathroom.

    « "Go West" vacation with friends. »

    This hotel was our first stop on a weeklong vacation to California. The staff were very nice and helpful. Suggestion to have lunch at the Mexican restaurant across the parking lot was perfect! The rooms were large, new and CLEAN! We didn't get a chance to use the pool but it was inviting. Breakfast was basic fare but certainly plentiful and hit the spot. Would definitely recommend to others.

    « Updates and Staff are Awesome! »

    Great staff!!! every shift had a wonderful person behind the counter. Breakfast was both hot and cold with a variety of items and rotation every day. The refresh in décor looks good, beds may need a little updating to something with out springs (for those who have lower back pain). The fridge, microwave and coffee pot were awesome for staying long term. WiFi was good but you have to sign in every 24 hours or so. Nice pool and sauna. Gym has 2 pieces of cardio equipment a bench and free waits with a water cooler. Really only bad thing is that the fitness center dosn't have an air control so it gets a little toasty.

    « Clean & good »

    We spent a night here recently on our way from San Francisco to Yosemite. Our room was clean & comfortable even though room temperature was above 75 upon our arrival. The free breakfast had plenty of options. The nearby area had gas, grocery, Subway, & Starbucks - perfect for restocking!

    « Always Stay Here When I'm Traveling Through Oakdale »

    This hotel is a credit to Best Western. It's very clean and the beds are very cozy and I stay here for a night or two when I'm in the area. I travel quite often for work and leisure and often stay in 4-5 star hotels so I'm a little spoiled, but the Best Western Rama Inn's cleanliness, comfort and customer service fill my needs nicely when I'm traveling on a budget. Staff is very helpful and friendly and free breakfast in the morning is a great addition. It's a great rest stop if you're on your way to Yosemite from the San Francisco Bay Area.

    « We will be back! »

    Great accommodations for business travelers. We had a great stay and will be back! Quiet rooms, great beds. Would have liked a bit more lighting in one room, but overall great stay. We were staying while attending fire training in town and needed a lot of spread-out room, good internet, and you fit the bill.

    « A great get away »

    A nice place to stay for a get away. Great location, close to restaurants and shopping. Has indoor swimming pool and hot tub for relaxing. Great family place. Had a great time as usual and definitely will be back

    « Nice Safe Place »

    I stay here a couple times per year for working in the area, always like it here, clean, safe, nice staff, lots of shopping if needed, good local places to eat, pool and spa are inside, so I can use them anytime of year

    « very nice »

    My husband and i stayed for 4 days.It is a very modern Best Western. It was very clean and well maintained. They have a large breakfast eating section. The pool and spa are enclosed. The staff was friendly.

    « Satisfied »

    I had a great experience with the entire staff and accommodations. The staff makes you feel welcomed and conscientious of your stay and concerned that your stay was satisfactory. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, but the cost to stay is somewhat high, may have the tendency to scare some people away.

    « Last min stay due to road closres »

    We were heading to Yosemite to a campsite we had booked but after so many road closures we gave up as we had been driving for 16hours luckily we came across this hotel and despite it being the early hours of the morning the lady on reception found us a room. The hotel was pretty full so we ended up in a suite which had a jacuzzi bath which was a nice relaxing treat after the drive. The breakfast was good and the staff very friendly. Car park was free and plenty of spaces. There are also vending machines if you need a late night snack!

    « Does the job »

    Perfectly comfortable hotel, providing exactly what I needed. Standard BW Plus, as best I can tell. Clean rooms/common areas. Good facilities available 24/hrs. Front desk staff friendly, efficient, prof.

    « Family Get Together »

    Family trip - meeting in the middle of where everyone lives. Had a great time and the hotel was a perfect home base! We went to Nearby Knights Ferry for then Civil War Re-enactment. It was amazing to be in the park.

    « Very nice place to stay in Oakdale, CA »

    This was a very nice hotel and the decor in the room was very nice. There were many families yet the noise was very low. We would stay here again on our way through this area. The staff was helpful and also very nice.


    This was an early Valentines present and it was a very comforatble stay. Clean, modern and roomy. The indoor pool, hot tub sauna and weight room, (with a shower nearby to rinse off before and after) were all clean and well kept. Clean towels are provided poolside so that you don't have to use your room towels There's a laundry room for guest use & is $1 to wash and $1 to dry, which came in handy ater swimming. Clerk (Monique) was helpful and printed a wepage for Chicken Ranch Casino/Bingo. Breakast was generous and varied. Dinning area was roomy and clean. Quiet surroundings except for Hwy 108 which is tame until the commuters go at it. I will bring a little fan next time to create some white noise or book a room away from the street. People who stayed here were not party types but rather blue collar workers and travelers

    « Fam visit stopover »

    This was a late nite stop before a weekend visit with fam. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Very knowledgeable about the breakfast buffet and with the control of television in the room which I had trouble with

    « A single night's stay »

    I searched Oakdale for a hotel that I would feel comfortable and safe in for the evening. I needed a place to stay before an early morning funeral that I needed to attend. This place was economical in comparison and clean. However, I did find a couple of things during my stay that I found annoying but not a real issue. First, the room seemed warm all night despite adjustments made to the thermostat. Lastly, I finally go down for breakfast and a BW staff member decides that the moment I go down to eat does she decide to start sweeping the floor to the dining room. Other than those two odd issues, I would recommend this hotel.

    « Nice hotel with descent breakfast »

    Nice hotel with a descent breakfast at a "first night when arriving at San Francisco international Airport" distance towards for example Sequoia National Park. Free parking avaliable. Close to restaurants.

    « Unexpectedly good stay »

    Having stayed in BW plus hotels in Napa and Monterey this one at half their price was better than each of them. Very helpful Dwayne on front desk showed us the local restaurant options in walking range after a difficult drive from Yosemite and breakfast had lots of options. Great bathroom and lovely bed. Would stay here again.

    « Honeymoon »

    We got married in Vegas and traveled by car via San Fran to LA . Oakdale was a stop over hotel. Calling it a hotel as motel doesn't give it credit. Jacuzzi tub in the room/ big comfy bed, spacious bathroom with coffee machine. The pool / spa areas we had to ours selves , very clean. Small free breakfast again clean with member of staff to help with waffles! Would stay again !

    « Nicest place in town »

    I've stayed at other hotels in town and in my opinion this place is the best. My room was clean and up to date. The location is good, there are stores and restaurants near by (Javi's right next door has great mexican food). The staff at the hotel were both helpful and pleasant.

    « Rates up there w/ high end Hotels »

    Very spacious nicely appointed room. Loved the bed, which is hightly important for my business travel to be able to sleep comfortably. White linens, a must and they provided. Fridge and micro and single cup coffee maker, cups prewrapped so no worries of not cleaned or santized properly. Only drawback is their wall A/C unit. They have gone the way of the high end Hotels in that, the A/C turns off during periods of inactivity and no lights which is while sleeping, although fan can keep blowing, the a/c temp get warmer. I suffer from an auto immune disorder and it was enough to wake me during night, which interupts my rest for next day work.

    « enjoyable »

    part of a travel tour in antique cars. we enjoyed out stay, and making out breakfast was easy and had a good selection. easy access and parking for out group. Pool delightful Staff helped with some research and made good suggestions.

    « Plus works for this BW hotel »

    It is a normal hotel not motel. Room very comfortable, nicely decorated, of decent size, with all amenities including microwave. Breakfast - continental, with fried eggs, sausages, waffles, cheese etc. Checking in and out easy, no hassle. Wifi of normal speed. On a minor side - the exit signs on the floors and for elevator are not very clearly indicated, i have not managed to get in the right direction of elevator without loosing my way. But that is easy to fix. Would stay again and recommend.

    « Helpful staff »

    This is a fabulous hotel. We had a lovely room and enjoyed the use of the pool and tub. The breakfast was very adequate and the wifi free and fast. Best of all was the helpful staff. When we had a problem with our hire car Rachelle sorted it all for us by spending ages on the phone and fighting our corner for us. Thank you Rachelle.

    « Overnight after the concert. »

    Although we only stayed overnight, we were greeted very pleasantly by the night clerk and quickly checked-in. The room was well appointed and comfortable. The hotel is close to several restaurants and easy to reach the highways.

    « Girls' overnight before golf tournament »

    This hotel is clean and updated. Nice staff. Fridges in the rooms, great air conditioning, plenty of room to move about, great TV and the bathroom is well stocked with towels and toiletries. I'd come back ??

    « They cancelled my booking »

    I booked a room for one night through When I arrived at 10 pm after 14 hrs of driving they had sold my room to someone else because their system couldn't handle the security standards of my credit card. They had no vacancies. The person behind me in line had the same problem. Still they had not given her room away, her card didn't work even though she was there (mine worked fine with a PIN number) and that person got to go home and get cash to pay for her room. Not happy with their services. Had to find a different hotel at 10pm and they didn't even offer to help!!

    « Family vacation »

    These is the first time we vacation around the area, so these is the first time I stay at these hotel. I really like the hotel is small but very Coffey. I like the room was big and very comfortable, the indoor pool is nice all 3 days we wen in and there was no people at all. The breakfast hours are very good from 6:00am to 9:30am is the first Best Western hotel that I stay that the hour do not vary. I would definitely will stay in these hotel if we will be in the area

    « Excellent customer service »

    We made reservations in Oakdale on our way to Yosemite. The room was quite nice, but the customer service was excellent. The check-in was quick and efficient, and the gentleman who checked us in had excellent customer service skills. He made some suggestions for dinner, and his suggestion was perfect! I would definitely stay again simply because of the great service. When we woke up in the morning, he was again at front counter, and again extended his warm welcome and assistance.

    « Nice hotel »

    This was a nice hotel. Its a 2 hour drive to Yosemite if you cannot stay in the park this is a good option. The indoor pool was nice since it was 101 degrees and I was tired of being in the sun. There are lots of nearby stores and a movie theater with recliners

    « Family visit »

    We traveled from Indiana to California for a quick family visit and celebration. This Best Western was located near to where the celebration was and was also near other cities we visited during our stay. We loved being able to use their computer center and printer to print our boarding passes the evening before we left.

    « Gem in Oakdale »

    My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night (July 22, 2016) on our way to Yosemite. The hotel itself is perfectly located with lots of stores nearby for last minute shopping before heading to the park. The room exceeded our expectations; from its layout to size, cleanliness and overall upkeep, as well as in room amenities. As far as breakfast goes, it is a standard continental breakfast, but it definitely needs improvement. The breakfast fell short for everything else going great with this hotel. Finally, I would like to address our room location within the hotel. We were assigned room 319. Please keep in mind that this room is located next to the vending machine as well as the ice machine. In addition, this room has a connecting door. You can literally hear everything happening in the next room, as well as the noise outside the room. I tried switching rooms with no luck whatsoever due to unavailability for our room type (king size bed). The only option presented to us was to upgrade to a two beds room at extra cost, which it was not reasonable. We were told our room is a hotel room like any other room, and someone had to occupy it; however, as Best Western members we expected more. Free parking and Wi-Fi. We will definitely stay at this hotel if in the area again. Great hotel overall!

    « Four star hotel but five due to the friendly staff »

    We flew into San Francisco airport about 5:30 PM on a weeknight. It took us about 2 hours 15 minutes to get to this hotel through traffic. I think this hotel was a very good choice for us as we were going to Yosemite the next morning. It helped get us there a little earlier! It only took us 1 ½ hours to get to the Big Flat road gate the next morning. - The room was clean. The bedding etc. was all in good shape. - The staff was all friendly and helpful. - The breakfast was good. The breakfast had bacon, eggs, cereal, bagels and a waffle maker. Cleaner and well maintained by the staff than a lot of hotels we have stayed. - There are stores across the street. We got a cooler and food from the Kmart across the street. This saved us a lot of money as we stayed at hotel closer to Yosemite next. I can see why this is a high rated stop over hotel in Oakdale.

    « Excellent customer service »

    The room was very nice with lots of handy features a little above and beyond the average. What really struck me though was how exceptionally courteous and helpful the desk clerks were. We were greeted with a handshake and "Hello, I'm Dwayne. Welcome to Best Western. How can I help you?" The staff both morning and evening were just exceptionally courteous and helpful. I overheard a young boy asking countless questions of the morning clerk and the clerk was so patient and cute with the boy. The only negative was that the room was a little pricey and they wouldn't give the AAA discount that they advertised because they were almost fully booked.

    « Heavenly weekend away with the girl of my dreams »

    This hotel has to be by far one of my favourites that we've been too. The hotel itself is clean and feels nice the moment you first walk in. Very friendly and helpful staff. The room was just perfect we went for the executive room with the jetted tub and omg we need this in our house it just was so much fun being able to relax in a bubble bath together while watching a movie just magical. It feels so romantic and was a perfect vacation together. I would highly recommend this hotel to any couple who is looking for their own romantic getaway.

    « Great Location and Customer Service!! »

    This is a nice hotel about midway between Yosemite and the Bay Area. Oakdale is a nice sized town with lots of stores and food options to help you load up before you head to Yosemite. The rooms at the hotel are nicely updated, too. The main reason why I'm writing this review, however, is because of the EXCELLENT customer service we received. My younger brother left his wallet behind at the hotel with over $200 in it (he had been saving up his money for vacation). Once we made it to Yosemite and realized it was missing, we called the hotel to see if it had been found, figuring there was NO WAY we'd ever see that wallet again. Cathy gave us a call back later that afternoon and told us that one of the housekeeping staff had found the wallet and turned it in -- we couldn't believe it! Faith in humanity restored! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to wonderful staff at the Best Western Plus Rama Inn & Suites!

    « Good hotel »

    Excellent service and courteous staff. Arrived on a Thursday night, and it seemed only one staffer was on hand - the front desk clerk. When I mentioned that there were no hotel towels in the fitness center, he got them himself and restocked the shelves within a few minutes. This after he took care of a couple checking in and another client who had a question about his room.

    « Great customer service »

    We stopped here after leaving Yosemite. A great stop. Rooms were clean. Laundry facility was great. Kids loved the pool. Breakfast was standard fare. All in all a convenient relaxing stop for the night. No freezer in the fridges though if you need it. Ice makers on every floor.

    « Great place to stay for a night »

    We booked this hotel to stay one night before we went to Mono County the next day. It is very convenient and in the middle of town. The hotel is very clean. The kids enjoy the indoor heat swimming pool and the hot tub. The rooms are clean and have a lot of space. Over all it was a great stay! We like to stay here again in the future.

    « Hotel in the way to yosemite »

    We staied in this hotel in our way to yosemite because it is in the middle way from San Francisco. There are many shops just across the street. They have free and good breakfast. The hotel is upgraded and very clean and comfortable.

    Always clean and comfortable. Helpful friendly staff. Love the food in the mornings. Also pet friendly. We look for these hotels whenever we are traveling. Also, usually near good places to eat. Highly recommend these hotels to other people.

    « Loud Traffic »

    It is a typical Best Western room nothing special but overall a nice updated room for the price point. The room was clean. The main complaint I had was the traffic outside our room was very loud because it is on a busy road through town and it was hard for me to sleep because I was woke up constantly starting around 5am. Breakfast was below average for hotel breakfasts and was not maintained well. We ate around 8am and there was almost no food left and the coffee was running very low. WiFi worked great and it was a good location to stay on our way to Yosemite.

    « Nice Room »

    The hotel staff was very pleasant. The desk employee, (Cathy) who checked us in, was very helpful. We had some issues with ants coming in thru the window. She sent her maintenance man out to buy some floral scented ant spray. A couple of shots of the floral scented ant spray and the ants were gone and did not return. The room was just what we needed for exploring the area.

    « Nice place »

    Rooms updated and clean. Hotel in easy spot to get around. Parking good and staff very helpful. Breakfast was good and room is large. Pool is small and so is fitness room in case it matters. Bed was on stiffer side too.

    « Visiting family »

    We always try to stay in this motel when we visit family in Oakdale. Occasionally we have had to stay in Modesto when this model was full. We especially like the warm indoor pool and the fact that this motel is always kept up.

    « Great Weekend Get-away »

    This hotel was perfect for our family of 5. We were all able to stay in one room comfortably because of the pull-out couch. It was clean and the staff was pleasant. Breakfast was available, but we chose to join other family members for breakfast out. There were some great restaurants within a close drive. The only complaint, if I were to have one, is that the rooms were a little too warm. We turned on the air conditioner for a bit and took care of that problem.

    « Best Western »

    Very clean hotel, excellent staff. Nice breakfast selections. Location was good with walking distance to the central area of Oakdale. I believe owner was on the premises and paid a great deal of attention to the hotel.

    « Great hotel »

    I was in town for business and loved this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful , the hotel is very nice by far the best as far as looks. The Bed was very comfortable , the only negative I have about the hotel is the fact that the pillows SUCKS, bring a pillow. I would recommend this home to anyone

    « Oakdae CA Best Western Rama Inn »

    We always stay there when in town. The staff always goes out of their way to accommodate us and the value is great. the rooms are very nice ,comfortable and clean and the amenities are great for the entire family.

    « Reputation for best hotel in Oakdale »

    Based on recommendations by local family, we booked rooms for a family trip. It was a very busy weekend for the hotel, but they went out of their way to accommodate us in the requested rooms. We ended up having to move around night to night at the beginning, but they did their best to assist that. The rooms were quiet, beds comfortable, and bathrooms clean and stocked with basics. The whole building apparently was recently renovated, and it showed. We didn't have any time to lounge around the property so can't comment on that. Breakfast was satisfactory for this type of hotel. Plenty of coffee, juice, waffles, cold cereal, yogurt, breads and pastries, eggs and either bacon or sausage, fruit. Price was reasonable. Maids were super friendly.

    « The Ice Machine is where? »

    Very clean comfortable hotel. There was construction going on when we arrived for our 3 night stay. We got our room when it occurred to me to ask where it was located. Hopefully not right over the construction area right? You guessed it, right above the noise. So we asked to have another room in a quiet section, after all we were staying three nights. Lovely room located right next to the ice machine. Did you know people actually use the ice machine at 4:40 AM? Now I do. But the bright side to all of this is the Free Breakfast. Super clean area, kept well stocked with fresh ingredients.Could have used a few bananas but everything else was very nice. Oh and it has a lovely indoor pool.

    « great room, very helpful staff »

    great room, large and very clean, helpful staff. Central location, close to gas station, shops and restaurants. Good place to stop on your way to Calaberas County wine country, also good place to stop on your way to Yosemite.

    « comfortable stay »

    our stay was just overnight, but the room we clean and very comfortable. The staff was friendly and informative. We asked about some negative reviews we saw online and we were assured that the hotel goes over and above to insure a clean and safe stay.

    « Great Hotel in a small city »

    I recently stayed in the Best Western when I traveled to Oakdale for a memorial. The rooms have recently been upgraded and are nice and modern! The whole hotel was clean, though they had a large bee keeper group staying and they tracked mud in. The indoor pool is pleasantly warm as well as the spa. They do have a sauna though I didn't get a chance to use it. The breakfast is basic, but good for a free meal.

    « No complaints »

    We were in town for a wedding and most guests stayed here. The rooms were acceptable. We reserved a suite, which was the minimal size I would expect for a normal hotel room. Everything worked, but the beds were extremely hard. I like a hard bed, but this was like sleeping on hardwood floor. A couple of glasses would have been nice (plastic and paper cups provided in room). Coffee maker made inferior brew, and coffee at continental breakfast was worse. Continental breakfast was not up to standard fare at free breakfasts.

    « Business Trip - Comfortable Stay »

    I am writing to review my first stay at the Best Western Rama Inn, though due to business I will be having four more stays at this property in the coming year. Since Oakdale is a pretty small town, one does not (or at least they should not) expect the lodging options to be more than basic. That is what this Best Western provides, a basic place to stay with some nicer perks. The rooms are relatively large and comfortable, with cool color tones and contemporary furnishings. There are only 49 rooms total, all located on either the second or third floor. The ground floor is fully dedicated to the lobby, breakfast area/conference room, pool/spa, guest laundry, caretaker apartment, small workout gym and sauna. All rooms are accessed through interior hallways; no exterior walkways here. The highlight of my stay is actually the sauna. It is very nice to have one, and somewhat surprising considering that even high-end Hilton properties don't have these. Very big perk, BW! The one downside, though, is that this hotel does not have bath robes available at all. Getting robes and making them available to guests who ask for them to use the spa/pool/sauna would be very advisable. The workout area is very small, but can still be used. The stationary bike machine was not operational during my stay, but the treadmill worked well. Adding a pull-up bar here would be a nice inexpensive amenity. I got what I had reserved, a single King bed standard room. I am Best Western Rewards Diamond Select, and perhaps have become somewhat spoiled with other BW properties providing complementary upgrades to nicer rooms. No upgrade was offered, though I don't know if this property has anything more than just standard rooms. Just a small and generally unimportant note, but if you're looking to get upgraded yourself because of BWR status, consider my experience and don't expect to get anything more than what you reserved. I'll be staying here again myself, so I can certainly say it is recommended.

    « Good »

    Clean, comfortable and in a good location. Wifi worked most of the time. Decent breakfast options. Hotel staff were nice and helpful. The price is a little high but I would stay here again if I was in the area.

    « Pleasant stay »

    As a stop-over point on our way to play in the snow, this was a convenient option. All the amenities expected of a 4-star hotel at a reasonable price. Hot breakfast was a key differentiator for us. Quality consistent with other large cities.

    « Girls weekend getaway »

    We stayed overnight. Close to lots of eateries and stores. Rooms were recently remodeled. Very clean and comfortable. I would definately stay again. We stayed in the suite which had a couch bed and two queens. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast could use a little help but sufficed.

    « Wedding Night Stay »

    The bridal suite was booked for our wedding night. We were able to check in about 20 minutes before check-in due to the room already being finished. When we arrived in the room, I was pleased with the look of it. I unpacked our stuff, got ready for my wedding and left. We came back after the wedding and discovered our fireplace and Jacuzzi both were not working. Staff was unable to get them to work as well. As a result, we were charged for a regular room rate instead. I appreciate the help of the staff but still disappointed that the main reasons for us booking this suite did not work.

    « Wonderful Hotel »

    Check in was smooth and easy. Had problems with wifi right off the bat not connecting but desk clerk had me up and running in 5 minutes. Rooms were pretty and fresh. Nice bathroom with big clean tub. Plenty of towels and necessities. Bed was comfortable and pillows were plentiful and soft. TV was a little hard to figure out but we got it! Ac seemed as if it wasn't blowing hard enough but room stay cool and comfortable our entire 2 dat stay. Indoor pool and hot tub were an added bonus to a long day that we took advantage of. Breakfast was hot with a nice selection of different items. Shawn the check out clerk was super handy with helping me print a receipt from my email. What a doll!!! We will stay here again when business brings us to Oakdale.

    « Nice hotel after a long day. »

    Traveling from Las Vegas to SF via Yosemite. Got this hotel since it was on the way. Have to admit I wasn't expecting much, but I was very surprised how good we were treated. From the check-in, to the check-out. We were always around friendly staff. And that call after we settled in our room to check on us and see if anything was wrong, or if we needed something extra for our stay was a really nice. Breakfast was pleasant. Lots of fast food restaurants around, so we could grab a quick bite to eat in the evening. And the bed was specially comfortable! We will definitely be staying here again when we drive though.

    « Room Was Quiet »

    Everyone deserves a good night's sleep. Sleep is essential for my health and well-being and a quiet environment is a healing environment. In a normal working day there's so much coming at you to process that you just can't deal with it all. Getting good quality sleep makes me feel rested when I wake up. A comfortable sleep environment is an important factor in getting a good night's sleep and Best Western does it for me.

    « Comfortable, just remodeled rooms, clean »

    Nice clean rooms, new carpets, furniture, bedheads. Staff is friendly. Decent breakfast. We never used the pool, but it seemed clean and nice, enough parking space to share with a bunch of trucks of some people going to the rodeo that weekend.

    « Great motel in Oakdale »

    A friend and I needed to stay in Oakdale for the Zombie train experience. Everything from the employees, to the price, to the room, to the breakfast was great. The room was comfortable and quiet. Although I normally stay at high end hotels, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the property, especially given the reduced AAA pricing. Would definitely recommend.

    « Great place to stay »

    Excellent service & friendly employees. Loved the pool & spa. Great breakfast and very clean in the rooms, halls & hotel We were there for a family wedding and this was our first stay at Best Western. We would recommend this hotel to family, friends & for business.

    « None Better »

    Having stayed at numerous Best Western hotels over the years, the Rama Inn in Oakdale, CA, was the very finest we have ever experienced. Newly renovated, the rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. This was a second choice for us, not being able to get our first choice, and we were thrilled with it. Will definitely stay here again if in the area.

    « Yosemite Bound »

    20 day road trip choosing hotels based on legs of the trip can be an adventure. Having never been through Oakdale, Ca. we lacked any firsthand knowledge as to its accommodations. We always feel B.W. is a safe bet and this was no exception, a clean well staffed hotel great beds and quite.If we ever get back to Oakdale the B.W.Plus is where you can find us.

    « Excellent Hotel with a nice indoor heated pool »

    My wife booked this hotel as a halfway stop coming from Yosemite going to San Francisco. First thing I'd like to say is that it is a good location to stay from a distance perspective. Check in was nice, I'm sorry I can't remember the name of the guy who checked us in, but he was brilliant and even called us once we got into the room to check everything was okay. The room was modern and clean. The heated indoor pool and Jacuzzi was exactly what me and my wife needed after visiting Yosemite and Sequoia parks. My wife also used the sauna. The hotel is really close by to lots of eating places. The pool was not busy at all only 2 other people in the pool. I would definitely recommend staying here.

    « Nice place »

    Perfect place to stay for events at the rodeo grounds... It's literally within walking distance. Has newly remodeled rooms & an indoor pool & spa. Usual hotel breakfast & in room coffee makers, microwaves & mini fridges. Pillows were not comfortable, but beds were fine. Clean & modern.

    « Good stopover for Yosemite »

    There's not a great deal to say about this hotel. It's average, it was noisy and the door lock was broken. We didn't have time to use the facilities so I can't comment on them. Food and shops are close by and the hotel is easy to find. Breakfast was nice, with lots of seating and a good selection.

    « Exactly what i needed after yosemite »

    what can i say, i wasnt expecting it do be amazing but it was, after 3 days in the national parks and lots of walking a sauna and a heated pool was exactly what i needed. Although we only stayed 1 night here. it was really relaxing. the staff were really pleasant and the food places are within walking distance difintely recommend a stay here on your travels to or from yosemite

    « A good place to stay in Oakdale »

    We have family in the area so we stay here once or twice a year. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The location is easy to find and conveniently located near stores and restaurants. The pool is warm enough for adults to enjoy.
