The staff was very friendly! We arrived late at night and without a reservation, and the front desk person was very helpful in helping us get a room for the evening. The rooms were very clean and quiet. We would definitely stay here again!

We booked this motel at short notice due to a last minute change of plans. It looks a little tired but was clean and comfortable and the staff were very helpful. Couldn't fault it really. There was no breakfast but coffee was available in the lobby.

The office staff was very nice, on the phone and in person. Our room was perfectly clean and comfortable. This hotel isn't located in the cute downtown, but it provided exactly what we were looking for. Comfort, safety and price. Thank you!

We had a guaranteed 3 day reservation through Expedia. We arrived late at about 9 and found our room had been given away. They put us up in the Miners Motel. We came back after one night there. Note Jamestown is a 1.5 hour drive on very winding roads from Yosemite Village. We stayed in upstairs room 22 for 2... More

We stayed here in late June,2013, while on a motorcycle trip. We ended up staying 3 nights rather than 2 due to rain. From the outside the place did not look too bad. The room was dated, okay, I can deal with that but it was also not real clean. The two chairs had stains and one of them had... More

I have never dealt with such an unprofessional, condescending, person in the hospitality business in my life. I left a pre paid room to drive over an hour and paid a lot more just to get away from this place. These people need a lesson in customer service.
