My family of five stayed at the Sierra Sky Ranch when visiting Yosemite in July 2012. We had two rooms, a single queen and a double queen. Both rooms were in the main building with french doors that opened to a large veranda. At first glance, you can appreciate the building's history and the location, but that's where the appreciation ends. The double queen room was tight. The shower needed cleaning or it could be hard water stains, don't know. The complimentary breakfast was meager. I asked for sugar and they had none. The AC vent in our room was directly over our bed, blowing on our heads. The AC broke in the kids room so the hotel manager offered the kids complimentary dinner in the hotel's restaurant which was very good but it didn't make up for the stifling heat. That same night, someone tried to forcefully enter my kids' room through the french doors. My girls thought it was just children playing. They looked outside but saw no one; it was 2:30 AM. We found out later the ranch is supposed to be haunted. The ranch could be a really nice place if the owner invested some time and money in the place. Don't think I'll be staying here again.
