Had never been to groveland before but purchased the deal from living social so that we could visit Yosemite. The groveland hotel is a great place to stay. The building is a landmark so it really has the gold country charm. The rooms were comfortable and clean. We received champaine and chocolate covered stawberries that were delicious, free breakfasts both days and a voucher for the hotel restaurant. The breakfasts were really good but the dinner was excellent. Try the rib eye or BBQ ribs, so good! Has an in house bar with a friendly bartender but it closes early. The staff are all so nice and work hard to make you feel at home. Take advantage of the half off massage, Brian does a great job and really gets all the kinks out. Barbara at the front desk was great with all the accommodations, even provided me a free toothbrush because I'd forgotten mine! The beds were very comfortable, maybe feather, the bedding was definitly feather so it was easy to snuggle in. My freind love seeing the hocky network on the tv so that was an unexpected treat. There is a wine tasting that also goes with the deal but we didnt find the time to take advantage of this. Groveland is 20 minutes from the Yosemite gate and an hour from the village so you get a reasonable priced trip, Yosemite, a fun old style saloon across the street (oldest in CA, pricy drinks but a lot of fun) and friendly warm accommodations. If you want a change from the sterile, corporate type trip where you feel like a walking wallet, try this war, friendly hotel where the owner makes a point to thank each guest for visiting and the staff is so nice that it's contagious! You'll leave smiling...
