Prices on Expedia were better than hotel's website. Closest hotel to Yosemite Valley, outside of the park itself - very convenient. Reception was a bustle of activity, they could use more staff and cut down on the wait time. Gift shop & store was full of junk, and not a lot of useful stuff (like food variety). The place was sterile feeling on the outside, pedestrians and cars competed with each other on the road/driveways because sidewalks are poorly laid out. Restaurant was good, pleasant staff, adequate variety. Interiors could use some refreshing - very 80's - but clean. Bathroom windows face right onto walkways - no privacy if the window is open to let out steam/odor. Kitchen was equipped with cookware, but the dishes were chipped and needed replacement. First floor rooms have an ICE COLD bathroom floor with no heat flowing into the room, very uncomfortable. High fences on the first floors block views of the river -- so ask for an upper floor unit.
