This hotel is about 15 minutes from the south entrance to the park, but it is another hour to Yosemite valley. The rooms were large for the four of us. The breakfast was limited and if you came at a busy time there is not enough seating and the buffet is not refilled quickly. Overall, a good hotel for the... More

Great location to the southern of Yosemite. Huge rooms with fridges and microwaves. Very clean. Self service breakfast works well providing you miss the peak time. Pool area compact but again very clean. Laundry room works well for cleaning gear. Could into fault the stay.

This hotel is located close to the south entrance to Yosemite National Park. The hotel is a little dated, but it has many redeeming qualities. The staff is excellent. I travel a ton and have rarely met such happy people. The rooms are very large with room for all of your gear. They also have a fridge and microwave in... More

Nice place to stay, but does need a seating area for breakfast and a better selection. Had to stand and eat. Besides that, the rooms were ample and location perfect. The pool area was kinda compact. The Staff was very friendly. :-)

Be sure to make reservations to get a better rate. Close to Yosemite for a nice ride into the park. A lady was very upset by the walk up rate though, which from her conversation was almost $100 more than our reserved rate. It was a nice room with a pretty view when anticipating the beauty of Yosemite (which is... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights this past weekend, and while I wouldn't say I was particularly impressed by the lodgings, food, or service, it was at least decent. Since this is the cheapest hotel we could find in the area, we were not surprised Breakfast was simple and had a small selection, but it was free,... More

We stayed here and planned to enjoy their continental breakfast. There were no tables to sit at and eat. We had to sit in the lobby area with everyone else on couches or lobby chairs and use the low coffee tables. Very uncomfortable. Also, the area where the food was stationed was very crowded. One of the cereal dispensers was... More

My fiance and I just recently stayed at this hotel and were deeply dissatisfied. There was hair in the shower, flies in the room, and writing on the walls; it was filthy. The walls were paper thin and we heard people talking throughout the whole night. Our room walked out to the pool where people were swimming and hanging out... More

No, not happy. The hotel is big on saving their own money, so our very pricey room was very bare bones, with a sink faucet in need of a washer, aged coffee pods which produced a weak brown water instead of java, a pitiful and in some ways revolting "continental" breakfast and, worst of all, a gizmo on the heating/cooling...

Overall property was good for price. Very quiet since we were on the top floor. Staff was efficient and friendly. Furnishings are dated but very clean and within 15 miles of Yosemite entrance. Breakfast was ok, but a 20% discount at Denny's helps if you want a big breakfast. Rate for the time of year we visited was fair.
