Paid $145 for a $50 room. 😭 It was in the basement of the building (basement smells) and very dark an gloomy and outdated. Nothing like the website portrayed. We really arent picky as we use Comfort/Quality Inns alot. Our biggest issue is the curtain on the door doesnt even cover the window. See pics. 😲 the bathroom curtain was the same way but at leat the gap was at the top of the window above heads. The fridge was precariously perched on a stool. Very wobbly. The wall stuff was dusty. The air-conditioner DID NOT WORK. We woke several times sweating and couldn't do a thing about it. 😒 The bedding top covers were old. Such a disappointment as we thought we had a cozy authentic place in a good location. 😭 I understand that location can be everything but what a mess. 😳
Room was clean, cozy and a great deal so close to Yosemite. The room patio/deck was a pleasant surprise replete with beautiful rocking chairs and a pretty view. Room had good sized fridge and coffeemaker. Easy access car to door. Breakfast included hard boiled eggs, applesauce and more; perfect for heading up to Yosemite for hiking. It will be hard to go back to car camping tonight. :). Thankful for a great rest at a clean, quiet and safe place.
My wife and I stayed at the Narrow Gauge Inn this weekend. The General Manager, Tim was very informative, friendly and efficient. The inn is also following the COVID-19 guidelines. Tim provided a lot of recommendation about things to do and places to go. The room was COVID-19 clean, comfortable and cozy. The inn has a great woodsy lodge feel. It was unfortunately that restaurant and bar was closed, the air was filled with smoke and the railway next door was closed. Hope to return and enjoy the inn when the community opens back up more.
I chose this property since small is smart during a pandemic and it was near the park. My check in was quick and friendly once they got past the guests in front of me with a myriad of questions. Some would describe this hotel as quaint and rustic but to me it was a small room in dire need of renovation. The bed was too soft for my taste and would creak whenever you roll over. The A/C was noisy and the thermostat was a bit wonky and it will infringe on your moment of peace sitting on the front deck. The hot water in the tiny shower was a bit here and there too. There was only one set of towels in the room but the front desk had more available. There is no maid service until check out. Wifi is almost non-existent and my T-mobile cell reception didn't work for me either. Unfortunately the restaurant is closed and the only place to eat nearby is the Tenaya Lodge which has a terrific turkey sandwich. Coffee in the room was crappy so I went to reception where they said the maker there was off limits and wasn't Covid friendly making me wonder why it was even there. They offered hard boiled eggs and apple sauce for breakfast take-away which I found off putting. Morning of departure I was awakened by the maid at 8 am. I think they should know if you've checked out yet. I guess what you're paying so much money for is the convenient location if you want to spend more than a day near the park. It is certainly over priced otherwise.…
Fantastic place to visit and stay , very quiet , very clean room. Great views and so peaceful and quiet on the balcony looking out to the forest and mountains . Comfy bed , nice air con .. The railroad was great hearing the train down in the valley . Plenty places in Oakhurst on the way for food and supplies. Enjoyed our 2 night stay.
