Stayed here one night recently. You know "that little voice..." that you should always trust and act on? When I entered the "office" I was immediately on guard, seemed like a makeshift deal and very messy, including the people working there. I asked to see a room first before booking one. It was what I expected, very spartan simple cheap... More

We found the place at the last minute snd thanks that it was Lee Vining Motel because it was really clean, nice and warm. Just one disadvantage that the sink didint work in room. But everything was good.

Nice motel, clean, reasonable, the staff are so nice! I left my ipod and headphones after coming down from a long backpack trip and was exhausted. They found them, and then mailed them to me. They even put the nightgown I had forgotten into the box! Small town charm and hospitality.

We spend the night for checking out Bodie and Mono Lake the next day. Fine for 1 night. $70-ish price category. Very small rooms, but in the end it did the job. Wifi was very slow. So rather then spend another night, we drove to Yosemite in the afternoon.

This is a very nice small motel the was a nice respite after leaving Yosemite. We stopped for the night hoping to find a place to rest. The first place was "No Vacancy." Then we found this place. They had one room left. It was all we needed with a single queen bed and a nice shower. Very clean and... More

I was in town eating an early dinner when a huge thunderstorm began to develop. Although I was camping in Yosemite, I decided to give myself a treat and get a hotel room to spend a stormy night inside. I checked in and headed to my room. My impressions went like this: Why are all the room windows open? (it... More

This is a small motel in Lee Vining and suitable to spend a night if you want to visit Yosemite, but not stay in the park itself. The room was clean and larger than I expected. There was sufficient parking space and prices were reasonable.

The sink it outside the bathroom in the room, a bit awkward unless it's just you and a partner. The windows aren't that secure. It is clean and affordable for the area. Staff was friendly and professional. Has what one needs for a decent nights sleep, but could be better. Wifi is super slow and not that good.

For $70/night in the Eastern Sierras during the summer, this is a fantastic deal and I am grateful that it is here. This motel is exactly what it appears to be: Small rooms, with furniture that you would expect, bathroom clean and tidy. I found the room absolutely spotless. Service is four stars, the office is only open from 4:0pm... More
