My husband and I stayed here for the Memorial weekend to visit Yosemite. We were both apprehensive about this hotel initially (due to the reviews that we read online) but still decided to stay here as the accommodations in Yosemite were fully booked. Upon arrival, we were surprised to find that most of our concerns were uncalled for. The staff... More

After reading the reviews on this site, we were quite apprehensive about this hotel. However, since we decided to visit Yosemite only two days before arriving, we really didn't have too many choices on accomodations. Surprisingly, we had a very pleasant stay here. Our room, the bathroom, the microwave & refrigerator were spotless. The exterior of the hotel was very... More

I was desperate to find someplace to stay because the Yosemite Riverside Inn had doublebooked us. The management gave us a discount on a deluxe room and were extremely gracious, Two kings, good matresses, a dining/lounge area, new micro & fridge, very clean and comfortable. Pool, spa, laundry room. Although it is an hour to the valley floor of Yosemite,... More

We stayed here for three nights in a clean, well-maintained facility with good amenities. Fridge and microwave were new, beds were comfortable. Towels could be replaced----some were so thin that I wondered if they had just bought a bunch of shop towels! But there were plenty of extras, and they WERE clean. The management was friendly and helpful. The rate... More

We are from Georgia and stopped here on Oct. 11th and 12th because no lodging was available in Yosemite. The rooms were dirty and had ants everywhere!! The room did not have a microwave or refrigerator. No continental breakfast was served. We were not given an important telephone message that was left at the front desk. The front desk opened...

This place needs a major remodel !! Looks OK from the outside but inside is in extreme bad repair and DIRTY!!!! Areas that would be easy to clean are never touched. The resturant they say is "adjacent" should be closed, bad is not a good enough word to describe it. PASS THIS ONE BY!!!

Stayed here due to no vacancies in Yosemite Park itself (despite warnings from tripadvisor), but might as well have stayed 10 minutes away in Groveland (a few decent options there, according to tripadvisor). Room was fine (standard motel) with one exception - ants and earwigs! The ants got into our things and I had to empty out my purse of... More

When we arrived we were informed that the drinking water was not drinkable and were not offered a refund, but a few bottles of water. The motel attendants were not very informative or helpful.

Needed a last minute hotel, so called this one, having passed it several times on the way to and from Yosemite. An OK room, very basic - what every business traveler has seen many times in the early travel days of their career at least. Beds and pillows were new(ish) and comfortable anyway. Old and tired bathroom though. The big... More

Food No restaurant at the motel, only nearby choice is next door very casual fast food type atmosphere. Service Staff was polite but not very knowledgeable about the area.
