My wife and I stayed two nights at River Rock Inn while we toured Yosemite. It was quiet and comfortable enough there. We were looking forward to trying out the motel's cafe, but it was closed. Breakfast offerings were not bacon and eggs, but consisted in two sweet bread cakes, some very good fresh fruit, plain yogurt, and good coffee,... More

The place is old fashioned and tatty. Our room was painted dark purple and the had no door, my parents at least had a curtain on their bathroom. Despite being with hubby 14 years there are some things a wife prefers not to hear! The blinds did not work in either ours or my parents room, and they did not... More

We stayed at the River Rock based on Trip Advisor reviews. How any one could rate this place satisfactory I do not know. We stayed in much better motels for much less. I have now read the poor reviews and can associate with them all. Our room was dingy, sparsely furnished and not very clean. We had no bedside tables... More

This isn't your run-of-the-mill motel. Don't expect WiFi or plush amenities. This is a hundred year-old renovated building in the old gold country of California. I will say that the rooms are very comfortable and accommodating. The back patio is amazing at night. And best of all was the flexibility of the management to work with firefighters who desperately needed... More

We stayed a night here on our way back from the gorgeous Yosemite national park. We arrived quite late so had to collect our keys by the reception outside, not a big problem. The room itself was rather dingy as were the towels and bed linen. But we were far too hungry and tired to care that night. Come morning... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here on our way to Yosemite National Park. We both loved it and wished we were staying longer. The staff are so nice, the food is amazing and the rooms and out door area are really picturesque! They are not large rooms and the bathroom and shower are definitely on the small side however nothing... More

We chose to stay here to escape the craziness of Yosemite. The drive into the national park is a nice mountain road with lovely views, but it does take a while IF that is a concern. We loved the graciousness of the staff and the large suite was super. We also loved Henry, the resident dog!

We stayed 3 nights at the River Rock Inn, and it was excellent. It was the perfect base for our stay in Yosemite. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful, complete with the most fantastic homemade cakes. We stayed in one of the suite rooms and it was spacious and really well equipped, with very... More

I have taken so much time to express our opinion of the River Rock Inn and Deli Cafe as I cannot decide where to start. This was absolutely one of our favorite motels ever. The room was so amazingly clean and so wonderfully decorated. My Husband and I were so happy and comfortable here. The courtyard at the motel was... More

We are a couple with a 12yr old boy, and are so glad we chose The River Rock as out base camp for a visit to Yosemite! Let's get the only "con" over with right away - the bathroom is tiny. Clean, functional, recently tiled, but small. Done. Everything else about our stay was great. The corner suite we had... More
