I was very late checking in (train delays). Called and told them. They said OK. Finally got there and checked in. Was not thrilled with upstairs room (I'm 68), but doable. I went to the room and turned on A/C. It was filthy and noisy. Went to office and told them that I would not be able to sleep with... More

Our family stayed here two nights while we did a quick 2-day tour of Yosemite. With three teenage sons, we were very fortunate to get a room with three queen beds. (This particular room is located over the front office.) The staff was very friendly. The room was clean and was what I had expected for the price. I cannot... More

Great and excellent customer service provided by Manny. Very friendly and most helpful. Discovered that my reservation wasn't confirmed when I arrived. Manny was able to provide a room for my stay for just a little more than what I thought I had made. He even put me in touch with the Hanford Rodeway Inn where my reservation had not... More

This hotel was OLD, but very well appointed. The manager couldn't have been more accommodating. Great showerhead. We were there for 3 days and it was very enjoyable. We would stay there again, for sure. The pool was really nice, too, with an 8' depth. Room was very spacious.
