Great place to stay so close to Yosemite! We stayed in the room next to the restaurant and we didn't have any noise from the restaurant. (Which, btw, the restaurant is yummy for both breakfast and dinner.) No wifi - no cell access for our phones....which was great to be unplugged! The room was clean and we slept well. It's... More

This place is in a great location not far from the main entrance to Yosemite National Park. We stayed in room 606 which was to the rear of the diner. It was quiet, the beds were clean and the room was tidy. The price of the room was also great considering the close proximity to the park. There is also... More

This is a great place to rest after a long day hiking and seeing the sites of Yosemite. It is a perfect location for those not wanting to stay at the overcrowded hotels/camps in the Yosemite valley. It is conveniently positioned not far from the entrance of Yosemite and also downtown Groveland. The room pricing was a great deal &... More

We stayed in buck meadows for one night after visiting yosemite-nationalpark. The lodge was very nice but a little bit to expensive. The restaurant nearby was great- very good breakfast!! We loved it!

We stay here every year on our way to Yosemite. One of only two places with a pool in the Groveland / Buck Meadows area, and I need to get the kinks out of my back in the water after the long drive. I believe the other lodge (Evergreen?) only has cottages. Rooms at Buck Meadows are adequate tho walls... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend after spending our 1 year anniversary at Yosemite. It was such a letdown, and while we didn't expect a Four Seasons experience for $120 outside a big national park, we expected more than this motel. First off, the little hut that is in the 1 traveler photo...is not what we experienced. Part of this... More

Our first impression was a dead bird on the stones right next to the deck to our room and then a bunch of bird poo on the deck which was from a nest in the eves of the deck (we had the room which was behind the restaurant and had a covered porch/deck to the room. From there, we stepped... More

This is very close to Yosemite and it was cold, raining, hail and mist when we were there so to arrive at our Motel to find a large warm room, we were in heaven.
