Like going back to the 50's! Comfortable enough, good location but miles from anywhere. Breakfast a little basic but OK. If you're looking for a woodland cabin experience, with no on-site restaurant, this is for you. Staff friendly and helpful but all seemed a little uncared for.. Old cathode-ray TV took up half the cabin!

This place is in a lovely setting if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of it all. We were lucky enough to get a room down near the river. The only slightly disappointing thing was that the room stated it had a a double bed and sofabed, but it was actually a small room with just... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting Yosemite. It's about 45 minutes from the village, but it's a beautiful Drive in and it's nice to be nestled into a small area away from a lot of people. It's also only a few minutes drive or a fifteen minute walk to the rainbow pool. The rooms are dated,... More

Room was tired, carpet worn and stained and smelt stale, blanket had holes in it, ran out of some breakfast items. Generally a dated room in need of some attention. Price was expensive considering the standard.

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.
