A lot has been said on the other reviews so I'll try to keep it short. And keep it all in perspective. This resort is located a long ways from civilization with access via a treacherous road. Think about the logistics any resort operator would have to go through to keep supplies stocked. We stayed at #16, the honeymoon cabin.... More

Stayed here in June 2014. Was able to check out several different cabins, tent cabins and river front tent spots. The other reviews are spot on. The cabins are old, a little run down, but beat sleeping in a tent on the ground. You also get a 1/2 bath with running hot/cold water and a toilet. Our first two days... More

We stayed in cabin 14 in October 2013 and loved it! Yes, it's old. Yes, it's rustic. BUT the sheets and towels were clean (and the towels were plentiful!) and the pillows were so good I didn't feel the need to use the ones I'd brought from home! The night sky was filled with billions of stars visible from horizon... More

For those reviewers who were "disappointed" at the lack of amenities, the road to Mono Hot Springs is a twisty, windy, narrow road through the forest, that should have been the first clue that you weren't headed for the Hilton. Yes, the cabins are older, I would say rustic. But, Cabin 10 was clean, the people were super friendly, the... More

This place has been a family favorite for many years and more to come. It is a very relaxed atmosphere with much to do. From hot springs to Doris lake and to the river.The cabins are rustic and cozy and the bathhouse and spa have been updated. The restaurant has good food. The staff are helpful and friendly. The Winslow's... More

This is def a no frills resort but has great possibilities. People are friendly and helpful. Mixture of stone cabins, wood cabins, tent cabins & campsites. Biggest drawback was our cabin # 23, overlooked the garbage site located in middle of resort! Def need to move location of garbage to more isolated location. Best cabins were 17-21 with 20 &...

We stopped here to resupply while on the JMT for a little R&R. We booked the tent cabin. Spacious, but not especially clean. Just the beds, nothing else so you will need linens or sleeping bags. Tents are open underneath. Leave no food in your room or the squirrels will come in and help themselves. Nice porch out front with... More

Jeff with his son Joe has run this authentic no frills resort for 50 years. If you want to get close up and personal with the backcountry without backpacks and RV's this is the place. It's not perfect but it brings you back to a better time, no tv...we had to play games and had a blast! Outdoor fire pit... More

This is a review on cabin #14. I am used to backpacking and knew that the accommodation in this "resort" were going to be rustic but we thought that we were going to be able to relax in a quaint, small cabin by the river. We were expecting a nicer and cleaner cabin and more charming and beautiful area. We... More

Learned about it from the Weekend Getaway section of LA Times15 years ago - DOGS ARE WELCOMED! Sadly my Aussie died last October, but she and I shared incredible hiking off-leash and swimming in Doris and Tule Lakes near Mono Hot Springs. She would hang her head out the window taking in the forest scents as we followed the narrow,... More
