The Riverside Inn is about 1/2 mile down Cherry Lake Road, just over the bridge. The grounds are quite peaceful, and there were tables and chairs around the grounds and on the riverbank. There is no restaurant within walking distance so if you get a room without a kitchenette, you will need to go into Groveland for food. We got... More

Very calm place to stay, like 20 min from the main entrance I believe. We stayed here for two nights with my girlfriend. The wifi is $5 for the entire stay. Breakfast is ok, and the table room can get overcrowded so wake up early!

I couldn't be more disgusted with this inn. The wifi is not free-it is $5, but doesn't allow for all types of service (web surfing, texting, phone calls, e-mails). From the towels with holes in them, to the dirty floor, to the insane amount of bugs-this place was horrible. We unfortunately spent 3 nights here-I couldn't wait to leave. Our... More

We stopped here for 1 night and found it very pretty. The room was clean and had everything we needed for the night. However if staying longer a fridge would have been helpful as the nearest store and restaurants are around 12 miles away. They are located in a lovely area with river views and a rock pool near by...

We stayed at the Yosemite Riverside Inn for two nights during the memorial day weekend. Loved the riverside location and easy access to Yosemite which was around 45 minutes to an hour drive from here. We stayed in two different rooms for the 2 nights we were there. The rooms were basic but pretty clean and we did not have... More

This was a chalet type room with a small kitchen area. It had two Queen Anne beds which were very clean and comfortable. As the sign says it's by the river and it's very pleasant hearing the river flowing by. A bonus is the air conditioning which kept us nice and cool on a hot day. It was peaceful and... More

Lodges in Yosemite were sold out, so we took a chance on the Yosemite Riverside Inn. It's not fancy, but the room was clean, bed was comfortable, and it was quiet. The biggest advantage is its proximity to Yosemite entrance on the north west side and price compared to other places. We had read that it was hard to find,... More

We picked this room because of it's location - less than 2 hours from Yosemite Valley. Our room had a great view of the river with a couple of cheap plastic seats. The room itself was very musty smelling. The sheet were stained and had a stick spot on them. I called the front desk and the young man on... More

What happened to customer service and having a conscience! We recommend staying somewhere else. We could not get to the hotel as ALL roads were closed due to a huge storm. Although the hotel was completely booked they would not refund us but I'm sure they resold the room anyway.

This place was considerable cheaper than other motels we looked at but it was an hours drive from Yosemite Park, so its OK for a short stay.The setting was lovely as there were gardens and a river with outdoor seating and BBQ area. Rooms were basic but clean. Location with regards to other amenities (eg petrol, food) was about a... More
