Just came back from this hotel. On the reception desk, there is a framed document stating this hotel has 4 stars out of 5 from Tripadvisor. Through our stay, we kept wondering - how come?
- We have reserved a room for 5 people, and when we came in at 11 pm we had only 2 queen beds in the room. They were out of extra beds and I had to go down to the lobby to take myself some extra blankets. Then I discovered we have only 4 towels. I was too tired to go down again.
-The ceiling in the room is low. I find this annoying.
-They advertise that they have a heated tub and pool, but turns out it is closed in the winter.
-They advertise that they have free wi-fi in the rooms, but the wi-fi is sooo slow, that you give up using it at all.
-Breakfast was very poor. There was only one type of bread - no bagels, no roles, no choice of bread. The tables were dirty.
This hotel is certainly expensive for what it provides.
It also has a misleading name. It is about 45 minutes drive to the gates of Yosemite.
