We stayed here recently for the second time (previously three years ago). It is an usual place in the midst of magnificent scenery, and about as basic as it can be. Don't come here if you want anything fancy, but if you want a glimpse of the high Sierra as it used to be, it is fascinating. Unfortunately, there had been serious deterioration since our last visit: the motel room floor was quite dirty (how long had the Cheerios been there?), and the shower curtain was moldy. These are details than can easily be fixed, but signify a problem if the management is not bothering. The place has been there nearly a century and is a High Sierra institution, and I would hate to see it go under due to lack of attention to detail.
