The two-and-a-half-pearl Comfort Inn Yosemite Area is decent, affordable option in central Oakhurst near restaurants, bars, and shops, and the south entrance of Yosemite is a 25-minute drive. Facilities are solid for a hotel in its category, with a seasonal outdoor pool and hot tub, and a free hot breakfast buffet that earns high marks from guests.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Budget motel with seasonal outdoor pool for families and Yosemite visitors

The Comfort Inn is housed in a two-floor motel building on grounds that are rather pretty for a budget property, with trees, flowers, shrubs, and a bench for guests to sit and relax. Cheap, dated furniture characterizes the lobby, while the breakfast room features dark-wood cupboards and is more attractive, but it can get a bit crowded during peak hours. A wide range of guests, including couples, families with kids, tour groups, and international travelers, make their way here for affordable rooms and value-added amenities, plus the hotel's central Oakhurst location.  

Location

Central Oakhurst location near restaurants, a 25-minute drive from Yosemite

The Comfort Inn is on Highway 41 in central Oakhurst in an area with restaurants, bars, shops, and a supermarket. The Oakhurst Best Western bus stop is a two-minute walk for access to the surrounding area. Guests planning excursions in the area can walk a little less than five minutes to reach the Visit Yosemite/Madera County Visitors Center. Children’s Museum of the Sierra is a five-minute stroll, while Oakhurst Community Park is five minutes by car or a 10-minute walk. Other area attractions include Golden Chain Theatre and Fresno Flats Historical Park (both three minutes by car), Bass Lake (a 10-minute drive or 15 minutes by bus), and the Yosemite Sugar Pine Railroad (a 15-minute drive). The south entrance of Yosemite National Park is 25 minutes by car, and the Yosemite Valley floor is about 90 minutes away. Fresno Yosemite International Airport is a little less than an hours' drive from the Comfort Inn.  

Rooms

Simple but spacious, with mini-fridges, microwaves, and coffee/tea makers

Guest rooms at the Comfort Inn have a simple, contemporary look, with a certain visual appeal. There's dark-wood furniture and a warm color palette of tan, muted brown, burnt-orange, and dark green. Standard amenities in the 117 rooms include flat-screen TVs with HBO, coffeemakers, microwaves, and free Wi-Fi. Some rooms have mini-fridges, and for those that don’t, guests can request them from the front desk. Views are nothing special in most units, but a few rooms have partial views of the mountains. Bathrooms come with hairdryers and shower/tub combos, and vanities are en-suite. 

Features

Seasonal pool and hot tub and free hot breakfast buffet, but no fitness room 

The highlight among amenities at this hotel is the small freeform outdoor pool, bordered by a deck with sun loungers and a small hot tub. The pool is open seasonally and is unheated, but the water is shallow so in warmer weather the temperature is almost always comfortable enough for a swim. Another perk is the free breakfast buffet, which is well-liked by most guests and features an ample spread of scrambled eggs, sausages, and a wide range of cold items. Outdoor seating is available in warm weather. The dining room is a bit small, so it tends to get quite crowded in the summer high season. Free coffee is available 24 hours a day. The hotel has no restaurant for lunch and dinner, but there are several restaurants within a short walk of the hotel. There's also no fitness room. 

The on-site gift shop has an excellent range of items for purchase, including Yosemite-related items. A 24-hour front desk, lobby computer, free on-site parking, and free Wi-Fi throughout round out the property's features. Up to two pets are allowed per room for a nightly per-pet fee.
