Internet very flaky and variable, but free. Clean, limited number of TV stations. Very quiet. Be sure to see the tufa towers on nearby Mono Lake; drive up Tioga Pass to see the mountains. No refrigerator or microwave, but did have a coffee service in the room. To eat, try Nicely's down the street, or head over to June Lake.

My wife and I recently stayed here for 1 night on the way from Yosemite to Death Valley. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and were given a downstairs room which was a bit basic, but spacious and reasonably furnished. Sound insulation was an issue as we could hear people in adjoining rooms and, especially, from outside where the car... More

We stayed in a cottage for 2. The cottage was cute, but the bed is one of the worst we've ever had. Not only was it too soft, but the sheets smelled sweaty, and the bed creaked every time you rolled over in it or got up out of bed. I don't know how the hotel rooms are, but recommend... More

Stayed here Friday night 10/31/14 and enjoyed my stay. The gentleman at the front desk was very friendly and welcoming. The room, bath and full kitchen in my motel room were clean and well kept. The tv was a flat screen tv placed in the cabinet where the old crt tv had been. The bed and pillows were comfortable, large... More

We were directed to a wooden chalet which was compact but gorgeous. If we hadn't had so much luggage it would have been easier - but we found places for everything. The staff were very caring and when we had problems opening our door the receptionist left the desk unattended so he could help us. The bathroom was rather small... More

We stayed in a cabin. It was clean enough, but the linens were thread bare and long past due for replacement. The desk clerk is not well trained or proficient at her job. Next time we will keep driving. If you do stay in the cabin ask to be away from the chickens and Roosters. They get started about 4:30... More

Stayed here from 10/9 to 10/12 this October. Very pleasant motel. Clean, decent sized room with a view toward Mono Lake. Couldn't see the actual lake but the foreground was nicely landscaped with planters full of flowers. Nice areas around the grounds to sit and take in the view. Good shower and bed but limited video choices. At least I... More

If she worked for... More

Stayed here after a trip to Yosemite and on the way to Vegas. The room was huge, with a huge bathroom, kitchen area with fridge, microwave and tv. We stayed early October and there was only 1 restaurant open in town - Nicelys - however the food was good and reasonable. The hotel is a great location for visiting Mono... More

stayed here 1 night before entering Yosemite. Wooden new cabins, wireless a bit flaky. Nice small town with a few restaurants. Worth to visit the Mono lake in the afternoon. Friendly service, would certainly return and recommend!
