Do not be put off my bad reviews of this place! Myself and my boyfriend turned up expecting the worst but were pleasantly surprised! This place is set in the nicest area amongst many trees and right by a gushing river.There are a few various different lodges set in a quiet and family friendly location, with a nice garden area,...

After a long long drive from Las Vegas, due to the Tioga Pass being closed, it was a warm welcome that greeted us late at night. The room was basic but had two double beds which were very comfortable.

This was a great place to stay during our visit to Yosmite. The people at the front desk were very kind, our bed was comfortable and the internet was free and strong. The riverside location was charming as is Groveland. We'd stay here again in a heart beat. Must admit that some of the review made be a bit scared... More

Yosemite Riverside Inn is basically a nice motel in a great location -- not far outside the Big Oak Flat entrance to Yosemite National Park. It offers a number of differently configured motel style rooms and cabins, which are old, but clean, with new and comfortable bedding, television, heat and a-c, just enough off the main road to be quiet,...

Hubby and I wanted somewhere close to the park entrance and were so happy we had booked in here. Short drive to Groveland and if you go the other way the park entrance. We had room 22 which was super nice freshly painted, spacious with nice kitchenette and large bathroom with bath. Enjoyed the view of the river from our... More

The rooms are small and quite old. When people walk by you can hear every footstep and each syllable spoken, day or night. Bedding is clean but room was quite small, bathroom was poor. Shower pipe was loose, no exhaust fan, no operable window in the bathroom area. We paid $125 per night which is probably the low end but... More

Staff was friendly and accommodating of a scheduling change, and location relatively near park entrance is very nice (much closer than Groveland proper). It is a bit pricey for what it is, but not bad and location is a big plus.

Very close to the entrance. Responsive staff. Big room! Will stay here again. The room we stayed in was the front half of a larger suite. Room 36--had I known I would have reserved the entire room. Perfect location!

We stayed here on a recent long weekend to spend time in Yosemite National Park. On the plus side, the room was clean and recently painted, and the bed was comfortable. It is also close to the park entrance, although that means you have a 15 mile drive to Groveland to find a restaurant. Although breakfast is included, it was... More

An average place to stay the night located just outside Yosemite National Park. It would have been just fine if the room did not contain a strange and unpleasant odour. Also a bit dated and no sign of a river..One other thing...when I booked it online it was for bed and breakfast. But when my partner and I arrived we... More
