“Old fashioned charm with modern comfort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

What a wonderful and charming old fashioned hotel with modern comfort. A great place to stay after our backpacking trip in Yosemite. Our room was comfortable, the food delicious, and the staff extremely helpful, even going out of their way to get us a ride to the service station when our car broke down. We look forward to another stay on our next trip to Yosemite.

Room Tip: Each room has a cute story. Lyle's Room included one about a ghost. No sighting during our visit...

Spent a night here recently - quite nice and would return again. Good food, good service, and a nice quaint country living style. Good value once you consider the extras (morning breakfast, etc.). The restaurant is excellent.

Wi-fi is poor. AT&T service is poor to non-existent. So if you're looking to do some work prior to/after a trip to Yosemite, forget about it.

We stayed at this hotel for one night and arrived quite late. This is a small town where all of the restaurants close early. Our bartender (Greg) and server (Kim) went over the top and although their kitchen was closed and they had no chef, they went back there and prepared a great meal for my friend and I (including delicious creative dessert) We were incredibly grateful for the kindness. Wonderful service and because of this I would recommend to passerbys heading to Yosemite.

Our little family had a really nice breakfast at The Groveland Hotel every morning of our visit, courtesy of our innkeepers at Sugar Pine Ranch. Our server/hostess was the very sweet Ms. Barbie Olivera who made our visit warm and welcoming every morning. She was so sweet to our children, they wanted to adopt her as an Auntie!

We did not stay at the hotel but it looked very charming from all aspects outside and around the grounds. A great place to stay overnight (or even a couple nights) if you're visiting Yosemite or Pine Mountain Lake.

In such a beautiful location this hotel did not disappoint. The hotel is proud of it's historical history and decor inside was charming and comfortable. The themed and named rooms were a sweet touch. Large rooms with an extremely comfy bed, traditionally furnished it added to the original american experience as well as being very clean. Also after falling ill I remember the bath being comforting and large the breakfast was delicious and there was plenty of choice from continental to american pancakes. it was great for our one night stay just outside of Yosemite. The staff were welcoming. The only little niggle is, that it was rather expensive, but worth it.

We stayed at one of the cottages of Sugar Pine Ranch for 2 nights in July. We loved it!! The cottage was lovely, everthing we nedded and more. There was a large pool that we only used once because we were so busy visiting Yosemite. Craig, the owner was very kind and helpful, thanks to him we even went to Tenaya Lake. We had breakfast in the Groveland hotel, a very good start of the day. We want to visit Yosemite again and we will go back to the Sugar Pine Ranch to enjoy the surroundings and the pool. I can only recommend this place to people (though I actually want to keep it to myself).

Don't be fooled by the exterior... This hotel was great! The rooms were beautifully decorated and the beds were so comfortable. The bedrooms were clean and large. The breakfast was delicious. We sat on the outdoor patio and it was refreshing. This is a great place to stay for a night after visiting Yosemite. I highly recommend!
