We had one of the really rustic motel rooms in a cabin and enjoyed it a lot. The cabins are old and really simple (we had no fridge) but clean, we had no problems with the mice after putting all our eatable stuff according to the instructions in the foreseen container. Be aware that you have to cross a small... More

Very conveniently located just outside Yosemite. We arrived just before 8PM in the dark, it was hard to see the resort and find our room but were welcomed in a very friendly way. The cafe closes at 9PM in high season and 8PM in low season so make sure you arrive before if you want to have dinner. It gets... More

We stayed in Cabin 4 for two nights - and rodents (wood rats?) scampered around the cabin all night. As if the live sightings of the critters weren't enough, the abundant poops on either side of our bed, in the kitchen/dining area and in the bathroom were also testimony to their presence. I am not opposed to "rustic" but at... More

We are day hikers but not campers and so were so happy when we found this place right outside of the east entrance to Yosemite. It is just a couple miles past it- super convenient, especially when the only other options are down in Lee Vining. This is at the TOP of the pass so it's a very easy quick... More

On our way to Yosemite we spent one night here in one of the single rooms. Bed was comfortable although It can get very cold at night. The outside shower was experience...;) The staff at the cafe was very friendly and we could check in early. The food for dinner and breakfast was simple but tasty. Very good granola for... More

A friend and I stayed only one night in cabin three. The cabins are very old and I loved hearing the creek all night right outside the window and the location is perfect for the Tuolumne Meadow area! Bedding was clean and I was very comfortable. There were obvious cobwebs around the whole cabin that should have been cleaned and... More

We first stopped at Tioga Pass last year after an exhilarating though exhausting swim across Tenaya Lake. Staff gave us cocoa and warm blankets while we waited for a place in the cafe. We decided to return to stay. Our cabin was light, clean and set back from the road. Kitchen light, spacious, functional and pleasant to be in. Nearby... More

cozy clean cabin in great location. Very clean simple cabin with tiny but adequate bathroom. No cell or wi-fi (sign in office says "Talk to One Another" and no refrierator or cooking facilities but good restaurant attached to "resort" (i.e. cabin) serves good fresh American food. Gigantic portions. Very good deserts.

We stayed 2 nights in the motel room. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the service from the employees was excellent. We knew this would be a rustic place with minimal services, no phone or Internet. The location is the selling point. You are just outside the park in a beautiful location. If you want to enjoy Yosemite... More

Best way to visit the Sierra High Country in Yosemite for someone who does not want to camp. Historic old cabins. Rooms basic but all you are really looking for is a comfortable bed to sleep in, you are not looking for a vacation resort. And the restaurant is great for breakfast and dinner, basic but food cooked with flair... More
