There is not much choice, so this is probably one of the best places to stay. It is clean and the rooms are large with 2 sinks one outside the bathroom. Lovely gardens. It is an old hotel but well maintained. Not much supply so prices are quite high for the property. It is very close to the Tioga Pass... More

the windows in our cabin didn't open and close properly. Very small bathroom. expensive for what you got. Perhaps the hotel rooms that our in the main building are better. the bed was OK. It wouldn't be my first choice when I return to the area.

Extremely expensive for what you get in return: I paid USD 170 for one night in a simple motel room. Very old bed covers, almost impossible to connect to the motel wifi network, no breakfast - you just get a 10% discount in a nearby restaurant if you show your room access card. On the positive side the location is... More

We drove from Vegas (via Death Valley) to Lee Vining. We picked this spot as it is very near to the Tioga pass entrance to Yosemite. Lee Vining is a pretty small, yet it is sufficient for a night stay. It was a long drive from Vegas (plus day trip in Death Valley), we arrived Lee Vining in the evening... More

Last minute booking on route to Lake Tahoe. Room was big and clean. Reception very friendly. Well situated in Lee Vining for short excursions to Mammoth and June Lakes areas. Nice little kitchen which came in handy too. Well worth the price. Happy to recommend.

Stayed in one of the cabins, which was very clean and comfortable, though there is no view of the lake. The small restaurant at the motel is outstanding and does have a view, great for breakfast outside. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again. The area has a lot to see with Mono Lake, Bodie and Yosemite.

Old time 50's motel in Lee Vining. Stayed one night before going to Yosemite. Clean, front desk was great. The name is deceiving-no ocean view. There is virtually no wi-fi available. If you stay in one of the 2 bedroom cabins, they are in the back, you are unable to even access even poor WiFi and you faces the back... More

It's a nice town and a good place to stop over or stay if you're visiting Yosemite. The hotel has a charm to it. It's a basic motel, but a charm non the less. Our room was a good size, which was nice. But unfortunately it was a bit smelly so I'd probably not stay again if I could find... More

This motel has beautiful grounds and some views of Mono Lake. The room was spacious, with older furnishings and comfortable chairs, but the lighting was horrible in the room and the bathroom. Because it was extremely dim, it was impossible to put on makeup. I had to sit by the window instead. Why not just use brighter lightbulbs? We appreciated... More

The hotel is clean and convenient for a quick stayover before you visit the beautiful Mono Lake Tufa Reserve. Most importantly, the Mono Lake Committee Information Center is close by and you can get a lot of information about this area.
