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

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

When I first saw this motel, I wasn't sure about it. The owners did not emanate bonhomie and warmth. There was no air-conditioner, but they had signs up letting us know this before we took up the room. BUT, I was pleasantly surprised by the room. Ours was quite large, had a very high ceiling, which helped keep the room... More

Arrived late and were glad to find a place. Rooms are nice and clean. Hotel front area is set up very nicely for relaxing. The breakfast room is very nice and the breakfast is very cheap. Good place, would like to come again.
