Clean room with newly renovated bathroom. Overall adequate for a short stay. Rather expensive due to scarcity of hotels in Yosemite area. Area has very few restaurants and they are also highly priced. Good for a park visit and in close proximity to national park. About 20 to 30 minutes. Stayed two nights which is good to see entire park.... More

First of all, yes the price seems a bit much but it is in keeping with all the others in the area--you are paying for the location NOT the accommodations. This was the most comfortable bed we had in our 9 day vacation. And the room was clean and updated. Guess we were lucky to have a second floor room--didn't... More

Bit of a hiccup checking in where we told we had only one room instead of the two we had booked and there were no vacancies. It was sorted out in the end so no one had to sleep in the car. The hotel was very handy for our day in Yosemite but I wouldn't want to drive back and... More

Stayed for four nights whilst visiting Yosemite NP. Located at the southern, old, end of town few minutes walks from restaurants etc. Huge well-appointed room with fridge, microwave, coffee maker. Very comfortable bed. A basic breakfast is served in a room by the pool. Breakfast could have been better for the price ! Our only problem was that a huge... More

Stayed here to visit Sequoia and Yosemite National Parks and it worked out great! Rooms were clean and comfortable and the service was very helpful. The highlight was the great hot breakfast and the wonderful service we received from hostess Linda. She was constantly tending the supplies and asking everyone if they needed anything with a smile. What a joy... More

We stayed at this hotel during a recent trip to Yosemite. It is in good proximity to Yosemite, only about 40 miles from the park. Rooms were clean and appeared recently refurbished. Breakfast bar had a lot to be desired. Hot food items did not taste well, selection of other foods items was limited unless you like bread and cereal.... More

We were pleased with the motel, service and location. The breakfast was the traditional free hotel buffet breakfast with eggs, meat, waffles, cereal etc. The rooms were clean and tidy. We knew we would only have two nights to spend in the area and that we were taking a tour through the park. The motel is located in the village... More

Very underwhelmed with this hotel. Most of the staff were great but the receptionist was extremely rude and unwelcoming on arrival. Room was okay but overpriced (in line with most in reach of Yosemite). Definitely the worst of 6 hotels we stayed in on our California vacation.

Good room, mediocre breakfast, check in staff not good that day! Stayed there to visit Yosemite, it was a bit further than I would have preferred. Hotel was undergoing renovations (when I checked in my room was not ready yet and there was NO bathroom I could use - sent to place down the road!)
