I 'm giving it only four stars because it's a classic old-timey motel, nothing fancy. But for what it is, it's five stars as far as I'm concerned. I was attracted to it because of the pictures showing it nestled next to the trees, looking so peaceful. And that's exactly how it is. The room was totally clean, the bed... More

This motel is not worth the money. Except for the new TV, its standard is of 1960. It is way too expensive, especially given that real attractions like Yosemite are still far away. Our neighbors at the weekend were loud, even in the night till 3 am. The owners are not very friendly but incompliant. When we asked for a... More

Where do I start? Comparing the place with a dump is an understatement. I booked it through hotels.com and I was supposed to have a suite with a kitchenette. The clerk did not honor my reservation. The room smelled like green onions. The towels were white but every thing else (linens, etc) were gray color and the comforter had severe... More

This reminds me of the motels I stayed in in the 60's as a kid. Rooms are worn, dingy and small, but the bed was newer and very clean. No bugs!! The walls are thick, couldn't hear the family next door, and they had a child. It could use a good cleaning and replace the carpet, but not bad. There... More

We had the "presidential suite" and it was a nightmare. The place is old and smelly, Their carpet is old. The tv screen was green and impossible to watch. There was mold. This place needs a lot of help. Maybe a remodeling would help. We were very disappointed. We should have stayed at the campground for that price. Warning- STAY... More

We were not getting any hotel for the long weekend in Yosemite. We got El Dorado for a very good rate. We were 2 families & we got 2 separate rooms which were so neat & clean. The room had every comfort & was quite comfortable with 2 queen beds. An excellent beautiful location with a golf course across the... More

The motel is old, but is kept clean and tidy. The rooms are quiet. The owners were nice and helpful. The motel is located in the sleepy little town of Twain Hart, close to the golf course and good restaurants.

The owners are an Indian family, very sweet, helpful and friendly. They would call you after you check in to ensure you are fine.. And suggest nice breakfast places around. The rooms were very clean for a motel. Prices are Ok considering its California and peak tourist season. Much better than other motels around.

The owners were very helpful and accommodating. The facility was quiet and restful. The pool and the spa were an added factor that made the stay so pleasant; The price was very good for two people and a small dog. It is a nice walk to travel on a serene pathway into the main part of Twain Heart. I am... More
