The butter was old and choice very limited. At checkout there was a older couple working behind the countre. They were really unfriendly. They didn't say anything after I... More

We really thought we had got the wrong hotel, looks nothing like the photos on its website. In fact looks like a burger king or McDonald's. Check in receptionist very rude and wouldn't believe we were non smokers. Room was awful, polyfillaed holes in 2 of the walls, rubbish around fridge that we couldn't turn off, so it was pumping...

Had the hotel cost a quarter of what we paid, I would rate it average. The best thing about this hotel is its location. It is within walking distance of many restaurants and stores. The room was cramped and had a moldy smell. The bathroom was not clean. Many items in the room were in disrepair. The AC unit would... More

This place is terrible. The "heated pool" is heated only by the sun. The wi-fi works less than half the time. Our TV would freeze up every 10 minutes and require us to turn off the receiver, which would then take 10 minutes before it worked again. They don't give you enough towels and act annoyed if you ask for... More

Poor on so many levels. The pool is not heated like it says it is and was super cold and dirty. Being July it would have been nice to have a comfortable pool. They charge you more for kids over 10 years old, which it doesn't state anywhere on the website. The owner was incredible rude. The decor is outdated.... More

It is located about 40 min drive until the Valley. Check-in was fast. The room was big, clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff was very kind and helpful. The breakfast was terrible. They shouldn't offer that. the wi-fi wasn't paid but it was too slow.

Our experience with this hotel is ok. Nothing extraordinary nor terrible. Room is small but location is great. Breakfast is average, service is good, pricey but everything close to Yosemite is pricey.
