The hotel is fairly new. It is clean and quiet. The elevator is very slow, we used the stairs except when carrying our bags. Check in was slow. There was one person on the desk and they did not seem to be in a hurry to help the customer in front of us or us. They did not call another... More

I booked a room at a motel down the street. Needless to say I left and grabbed a room here. Glad I did because they happen to have only one room available. The hotel desk was helpful, the room as clean, felt safe and the bed was very comfy. I highly recommend spending a few extra bucks and staying here.

Stayed a night during a trip to Yosemite. The staff was friendly and check-in was quick. The room was nice. The only thing that would have been better was the A/C unit was controlled on the unit. Most nicer hotel rooms now come with a specific thermostat on the wall. Breakfast was OK but the pancake machine was under cooking... More

We spent here two nights. First, when we came from San Francisco and second, when we went back from Yosemite. It's nice and small hotel with pool and some close restaurants. Although this city seems to be hot and sleepy, I will always remember it we spent here some very quiet time.
