Good location outside of Yosemite. Better pricing since it is outside Yosemite yet only about an hour from valley floor. Clean rooms quite seating. free wi fi a little slow. Fridge in room. Shower only no tub

We spent the night there after a day in Yosemite. The room was clean and a decent size and had a fridge and microwave. It is convenient to restaurants in town. The bathroom had no bath soap or shampoo, just liquid soap in a container. The TV is DISH TV. It was a bit expensive for what you get, but... More

This is a very nice place off the main street and lower than the main street, so little noise. The rooms are small, but well equipped, clean and comfortable. There are not that many rooms, so little noise, and the owner can tell you all about the town, where to eat , etc. This was a one night stay and... More

About an hour away from Yosemite. Nothing special but suitable for a one night stopover. Bathroom was tiny and the shower was quite awkward to use and I'm not a big person. Room was a little tired looking and quite dismal. We stayed 2 nights and coffee wasn't replenished. Nice little town.

My brother in law and I stayed here Thurs the 8th during a moto-trip around the yosemite area. It's pretty conveninetly located and there are enough little restaurants and such within walking distance. The facilities themselves are pretty old and not perfect, but it was clean and the price wasn't bad.

Stayed here 1 night. Clean and a good location for yosemite. Nothing flash but what do you expect for budget accomodation. Fridge needed a clean but everything else ok. Didnt use the pool. If you stay here definitely try thr smoothies from the sweet place over the road, they were delicious.

This place is great for the location, being in the heart of the last town (the diner opposite offers a great quality bite) before Yosemite (1h10min away to get to Yosemite Village) as well as offering a strong wifi signal and off street parking. But that's it. Don't expect much more. The price is also it's selling point given the... More

I stayed here for two nights to visit Yosemiti. Mariposa is not to far from the Park entrance. The lodge is easy to find, and the main accomodation is set back from the road. The rooms were air conditioned and the bed was large (UK king). The only let down was the bathroom. Adequate, but the taps only dribbled water... More

A small motel in the city center , friendly staff , rooms are small but clean , the furniture is old , air-conditioning works well, but it's loud. Too bad they do not offer breakfast . In the city there is no supermarket .
