“Comfortable, atmospheric, scruffy in places.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

This hotel is ideally situated for Yosemite National Park. In September the evenings were getting cold, but a log fire was lit on each of our two evenings and the heating was turned on the second night. One of our rooms was superb, my own being musty-smelling and rather small, but the bed was very comfortable. The dining room and lounge are excellent, with a lovely, old-colonial atmosphere, beautifully furnished and well cared-for. In other, outside, areas neglect is obvious. Staff were very helpful, breakfast good and dinner was available even though we were late on our first night. Don't come here for a luxury stay, but you will have a convenient base for visiting Yosemite, and a good night's sleep.

Room Tip: There seemed to be a discrepancy in the quality of different rooms and you may want to try to ensure...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in August while visiting Yosemite. The lodge itself is beautiful, the rooms are lovely and the staff super friendly. We had dinner at the restaurant which was amazing (great ribs and good wine) but were disappointed with breakfast. Overall though, the bad breakfast didn't take anything away from the great stay we had. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Go into Oakhurst for breakfast

The lodge is located in an absolutely stunning location. The staff were very friendly both in the hotel and in the restaurant. They have a few cats that wonder about the lobby, that we felt added a bit of charm. The lobby area was lovely, very charming.
We had a family room in the bunk house and it was very basic accommodation. In my opinion the rooms really require updating.
The bedding was clean but the sheets were ripped in places. In our room there were a couple of strips missing from the vertical blinds which meant people could see into our room from outside.
The outside pool could also do with an update as the water was dirty. It was a real shame that the rooms were not up to standard as this place could be a gem as the location was stunning and the staff were so nice. Compared to other places we stayed on our trip around all of California this worked out as the most expensive room and the poorest standard!

My husband and I stayed last night at this hotel for a wedding. We had a slight problem booking a room and messages not being returned however the day of the wedding the hotel made arrangements to get us a room we would be comfortable in and discounted it down for us for all the trouble. During the wedding the hotel was wonderful with service we enjoyed a long conversation with the young waiter joe he was very pleasant and fun to talk to!! We truly enjoyed our stay

The three stay was absolutely excellent. The ambiance is perfect, the rooms cozy, comfy and inviting. The grounds are well maintained. The staff is beyond perfect and the food, while portions are huge, was divine. The smallest or largest request was seen to immediately. I would recommend this to anyone and will definitely stay again.

Stayed for 3 days with teenagers and all of us enjoyed this very charming place. Located about 10 miles from south entrance of Yosemite park, it was nice to come back to this cosy and ranch decor place. The restaurant is very convenient and offers good food but be aware of the American size portions. Few remarks though : poor breakfast, small rooms and old material but would still recommend the place for its unbeatable charm.

We stayed for three days and every minute was enjoyable -a special place.From the check in to our departure you are made to feel at home by the owner and the excellent staff led by Joe. It has a rustic charm that could be considered a little quirky.But quirky is excellent in comparison to those boring hotel chains. After a hard day walking or touring it is a delight to return and have a sun downer on your veranda after a dip in the pool.Afterwards have dinner in the restaurant -portions are American size and we split the plates- the extra 6 dollar charge is worth it as you eat everything.Wine by the glass or the bottle - very reasonable price. Then to bed and sleep like a baby in that cool mountain air.The location is beautiful and you are only a 10 minutes drive to the South entrance of the Yosemite.For Europeans touring California this is a great place to stay -so different and yet so American with all the ranch decor etc. One small negative was the casual approach at breakfast -no problem with laid back,but ensure that the food is replenished. Having said that, still highly recommended.
