I do not recommend this place, at least if you are going to pay the price we paid, which was what we were told was a generous, discounted rate of $200 per night (instead of the supposed regular rate of $338 per night) for two adjoining rooms (the rooms were very small). The place was not very clean, and even... More

Located just outside the National park this motel offers a great affordable alternative to the much more expensive Park hotels. Very basic rooms but they still offer TV and coffee maker. Cheap food is offered in the on site restaurant. Wifi is included.

Great staff great beds...quiet and away from crowds. Restaurant closed but Wawona lodge in the park is good up the road.... I would stay here again. Very peaceful. Great stop over before you get to the park.affordable. Buy lunch fare in Oakhurst before you come there

The location is perfect, extremely close to Mariposa Grove, around ten minutes driving. The front desk person was very helpful. Rooms are quite big and clean, the free internet connection works fine. It is a great value for the money, we booked it initially for the incredible price of 32$/night, then decided to spend an extra night at the doubed... More

Its a nice quite place to relax. This motel was built in the 1900's so you must take that into consideration. Yes there are small out-dated showers and the rooms are smaller than other hotels, if your looking for a sweet place to lay your head White Chief is the place. This motel is a very clean, comfortable, simple place.... More

This motel is an excellent value! Nothing fancy, but clean. It is the best value when visiting Yosemite and you can't beat the proximity to the park entrance, which is just 2 miles! There is also a restaurant on premises which offers decent food at a fair price,

The staff is great. The place is reasonably priced. Pretty clean . We stayed here because it was the closest, cheapest place to half dome that was available and would stay here again if the price was reasonable. The shower can use a little updating.

Not much complaints. Location is ideal for south entrance to National Park. Only problem with room is no air conditioning and wifi is not the best. Within walking distance of Tenaya Lodge which is very very nice. Went here for meals as the restaurant at accommodation was closed.

No Air condicioner, small room.We didn't have towels when we arrived, no coffee refill in the morning. It says "room with refrigerator" but we couldn't fit even a soda bottle. When trying to have a Shower in the morning, they shut down the hot water for the whole day. Very low profile for the price they charge.

There are not a lot of choices for staying in the Yosemite area. Lodging in the park itself is extremely expensive and requires almost a year advance reservations. Just outside the entrance to the park (but still an hour drive within the park to the main village) is "Fish Camp" (city). The White Chief Mtn Lodge (and restaurant) is located... More
