Staff at reception were rather unfriendly and unhelpful throughout our 2 day stay. There is no free WiFi here (which every other hotel & motel we have stayed in for the last 3 weeks as we have travelled across the USA offer). The price of WiFi is extortionate and there is no cellphone signal you can get in most of... More

Stopped through during a trip to Yosemite. While this place isn't located within the park, it's a fairly short drive from it. The onsite restaurant is pretty decent with a small store and several pools on the grounds as well. I would certainly stay here again.

When we first arrived the front desk was not so friendly. I thought per reviews would be good place to choice due to location to park. Its only 2 miles away. The rooms ok but outdated, beds not so good, old bedspread etc. They did have little kitchen. When we got in room it was super hot. Outside was 97... More

Room - double queen - had all the amenities. Microwave, fridge, small stovetop, chinaware and glasses. Room was nice and clean, bathroom was spacious and nice. Pool areas where nice and well kept. $ 14 for an all you can eat breakfast is ok, but selection is severely lacking in vegetables (not even a tomato slice). I made an unfortunate... More

What a perfect spot this hotel is at for visiting Yosemite. It's the nearest to the park and you can get a bus in that stops at the hotel. There's everything you would need in your room (although I had to request some hangers for the wardrobe and never got them?). The room we were in was a little tired... More

Room was good size, inclusive of the kitchen. Bath was oversized. Very nice to have A/C in addition to the ceiling fan for the 106 degree temps while we were there. Pool was refreshing. There's lots of them. Hot tubs weren't very hot. Pleasant down by the river, with the water cascading around the rocks. Enjoyed morning coffee and evening... More

We had a double queen bed room with a small patio facing the river. We stayed two nights there and found the room to be very comfortable and they were pet friendly so we were able to bring our two small pets with us. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery just out our back door and even saw a Bob Cat... More

From reading past reviews we weren’t sure what to expect but what a delight we got. Firstly, we had been upgraded to a riverside view. Not sure what we had done to be so lucky but the view was amazing. We had a huge room which was very clean with a kitchen area and patio right next to the river... More

Stayed here with friends for 2 nights at the end of May. Rooms are fine (nothing special), altho' our friends' room was lacking a few bits of inventory (balcony chairs / corkscrew / Sink drainer / bin!!). Views around are absolutely stunning, & gave us a taste of what to expect in the park. The swimming pool is a little... More

My mom (56) and I (29, female) stayed here for two nights during the week in June on our vacation to Yosemite. Park is about 30 minutes away, and the hotel is the closest to the park without being inside it. We had a third-floor river view room with a hot tub, dual shower, and balcony, and the sounds and...
