A good location for hiking and relaxing. Both the local Big Trees State Park and Arnold Rim could keep you busy for 4 days. We never even made it to Yosemite, and were glad that we had the trails to ourselves (went in May). Also a nice drive up the pass by Markleville. The Arnold restuarants were mostly excellent, and the little shops were fun. Also a lot of nearby historical gold rush towns to visit: Columbia, Murphy, Sonora, Jackson, Placerville. The room was clean and the bedding nice. Plenty of room for another 2 people. Our major compaint was that the wireless/wifi was inadequate. The rec room lobby is under construction but should be nice when done this summer.
Be careful: Doorknob located too close to door jam. Not safe position as both my husband & I cut our hands closing the door. Recommend replacing with a lever style handle which would be safer and easier to open.
