It's technically a motel. And it feels like it. The rooms are fine, just very generic. It definitely looks better on the pictures. The bathroom seemed older and too basic.
The motel is 10 miles outside of Yosemite park. The park itself is huge. So from the park village to the motel is 1 hour drive. It's something to consider. Also next to the motel there is a restaurant (which we thought was good) and that's all for another 10 miles or so. And there is no internet connection or phone reception of any kind. So plan accordingly.
Overall not a bad place, it does the job. Just ends up being overpriced for what it is.
