This was a cute little place to stay at. It was about 15-20min from Yosemite's entrance and about an hour from the valley. The room was clean and had everything that was necessary. They offer wifi, which was perfect because I did not have phone service in this area. Also have breakfast, nothing fancy but it was good enough. Would... More

...please be advised that this is a "Christian hotel", with the usual propaganda in rooms and the reception area. The breakfast was pretty awful, so skip that and go into Groveland. HOWEVER, the mattresses, sheets, blankets and linens were new, and there is A/C in every room. Since this is located 1/2 mile off Route 120 there is little traffic... More

The place is nice - great location and I loved the settings! However, we were placed in one of the cabins farthest away from the office / other rooms and there was absolutely NO lighting outside! After parking the car, we had to use our phones to get to the door and unlock it! Worse yet, our door had a... More

Myself and a few friends stopped off here after a long day of driving and it was just what we needed, although we didn't stay for long. The rooms were clean and comfortable, plenty of space and everything we needed. We received some additional support on the phone as to how to find the inn, as the roads were a... More

Following a long treacherous, and pleasant, day in the Yosemite National Park, there is some sort of anticipation to finish the day in an environment and ambiance that can accommodate an aching body and bitten spirit. The Yosemite Riverside Inn has neither the environment nor ambiance to match basic expectations. I am not aware of any criteria that stipulates what... More

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
