We spend the night for checking out Bodie and Mono Lake the next day. Fine for 1 night. $70-ish price category. Very small rooms, but in the end it did the job. Wifi was very slow. So rather then spend another night, we drove to Yosemite in the afternoon.

This is a very nice small motel the was a nice respite after leaving Yosemite. We stopped for the night hoping to find a place to rest. The first place was "No Vacancy." Then we found this place. They had one room left. It was all we needed with a single queen bed and a nice shower. Very clean and... More

I was in town eating an early dinner when a huge thunderstorm began to develop. Although I was camping in Yosemite, I decided to give myself a treat and get a hotel room to spend a stormy night inside. I checked in and headed to my room. My impressions went like this: Why are all the room windows open? (it... More

This is a small motel in Lee Vining and suitable to spend a night if you want to visit Yosemite, but not stay in the park itself. The room was clean and larger than I expected. There was sufficient parking space and prices were reasonable.

The sink it outside the bathroom in the room, a bit awkward unless it's just you and a partner. The windows aren't that secure. It is clean and affordable for the area. Staff was friendly and professional. Has what one needs for a decent nights sleep, but could be better. Wifi is super slow and not that good.

For $70/night in the Eastern Sierras during the summer, this is a fantastic deal and I am grateful that it is here. This motel is exactly what it appears to be: Small rooms, with furniture that you would expect, bathroom clean and tidy. I found the room absolutely spotless. Service is four stars, the office is only open from 4:0pm... More

Needed a room for a night, town sorta full. Got my money's worth. Bed and pillows just ok, but the room was very clean, shower was a 9 1/2 Absolutely got my money's worth. Not what I'd choose for a long term stay but a truly honest value! My check in was honest and easy! I'm filling space for the... More

Guests are welcomed by a a note in the room: "Do not use faucet. Fridge and stove do not work". Room heating defect. Owner totally desinterested (I do not know). Needless to say that WIFI does not work.

Reception staff were ok but that is were it-went downhill. Wi fi was non existent along with customer care. The lights in our room were so dim my wife lost her contact lens in the so called bathroom. The water in the shower is best described as cool lukewarm at all times during the two nights we stayed there. My... More
