We stayed two nights in a room in which there were only 3 pieces of furniture: a Queen bed, a night-stand, and a small couch. There should have been a second night-stand so both sides of the bed could have one, but the worse omission was that although the room had a small kitchenette, there was absolutely no table or...

This is a great place to stay and a good value if you aren't going to actually stay IN the park--it is a very short drive to the park entrance. Our family of 5 (all adults) stayed in two adjoining rooms with river views. The room was very nice, clean, with all the usual amenities: mini-fridge, tub, big tv. The... More

Motel is very large, we had a room along the river was very nice, but mosquitos were horrible. Room is very dark, rugs were old and dirty looking. I wouldn't walk bare feet on rug. They had a Italian restaurant near by and food was great Food was tasty. If you can't get in at Yosemite this place is very... More

The room, the view - right by the water - absolutely wonderful! Loved the room layout, clean, restaurants good food. This was a great place overall. My minor issues: towels a bit thin for a place like this for the price you pay. Also, front desk staff (mostly 20something) were not rude but just polite. No extra pleasantries were offered... More

As the title suggests .... All staff - Jessica, especially, were superb. Rooms a little tired but spacious. We had the same room as last time - ground floor with a large patio. We were grateful for the metal railings as we had a visitors- see photo. Very practical. Lots in shops and laundrette helpful. Recommended.

Great access to Yosemite. Beautiful view from large deck outside room. Air conditioner so noisy that we turned it off at night. Often lines to talk to someone in the office, but great service if you make request from your room phone. Staff at front desk are slow and less than helpful. Had problem with room reservation made through Tripadvisor,... More

We stayed for 5 days in July. We had a king room, overlooking the Merced River which was really lovely! Our room had a small kitchenette with pans/dishes provided we cooked 3 meals. I would suggest you bring your own food as the "general store" is pricey. The bathroom was huge. Yes, you have to pay for wifi, I guess... More

I was a bit reluctant to share the pictures I took in the room, as they may upset some people but I finally decided to post them to help other fellow travelers. The first impression of the hotel wasn't so bad, until we entered the room and smelled a typical old hotel odor, which made my 10yr old son literally... More
