We stayed here 1 night so we could get to Yosemite relatively quickly the next day and the TA reviews were ok. This isn't the sort of place we usually stay at - too big and impersonal - however this fit the bill for our purposes on this occasion.
Room was big and well appointed.
Grounds are nicely landscaped and although the property is large and sprawling it is easy to get around using well placed stairs and walkways.
Laundry on site was a real bonus.
Two pools and spa pools - one inside, one outside. We overlooked the outside pool which was very pleasant. The spa pool was down a short set of stairs separate to the pool and nicely tucked away in a nice setting. We were able to use it with only one other couple present in the evening, a pleasant surprise considering the size of the property.
Breakfast staff were very pleasant and helpful with explaining where everything was and how it worked, was happy to tip them.
2 supermarkets just down the road so you can stock up for Yosemite at reasonable prices.
The front desk staff we encountered were all very impersonal with no warmth exhibited. Appeared to be 'going through the motions'.
The breakfast itself, although cooked options available was very average. When your waffles are dry and hard, there is a problem!
Overall met our expectations in most areas and worked well for us. Would be perfectly happy to stay here again for a night but not sure I'd want to spend a long time here.
