The location of the hotel and its parking facilities are great for visiting Yosemite. Mariposa is also a nice little village. From the outside the hotel looks great, but is pretty simple inside. The room itself and its facilities are OK, although the interior's design looks old-fashioned. The WIFI was very poor. The price was inclusive breakfast, but I would... More

Very poor upkeep of the entire motel; very bad breakfast (ran out of coffee, the toaster burned all the toast everyone tried to make, warm milk for cereal, canned apple and orange mice out of a machine, etc.); TV turned on by itself in the middle of the night and we had to unplug it to keep it off; air-conditioning...

Good location in the centre of town, close to restaurants. Room clean beds comfortable. Air conditioning is old and noisy. Foyer was unprofessional and cramped. Breakfast was substandard, insufficient supplies and space to eat. No choices, not even iced water. Not amenities in lobby Tables were dirty and the staff did not handle food in a sanitary manner.

This was booked via our travel agent. After reading the reviews whilst staying there we agree with the negative feedback. The reception people are very unfriendly and rude. Had 2 towels for 3 people and when requested more they made you feel that it was too much trouble. There was old coffee cups and food under the bed. Room not... More

This is the worst hotel I have ever been in. It is dirty and disgusting. I would rather sleep on the street.It is far from Yosemite like an hour drive. There is no reason to stay here. It is hot, has no gym and the pool is the size of a jacuzzi. It smells bad and has zero housekeeping.

Deciding to stay in Mariposa on a Saturday night in the middle of summer ... all other hotels were booked. The Monarch Inn had one room left ... and it was pet-friendly. Perfect. A great location in walking distance of the main downtown area, full of shops and restaurants. I arrived early, called their parking lot ... the receptionist said... More

Hotel is a very short walking distance from the restaurants and bars from Mariposa and 1 h 15 drive from Yosemite Valley, which was convenient for us in high season when higher up accommodation are fully booked. Reception was friendly. The hotel is indeed a bit old and not super well maintained, breakfast disappointing. But hey, it is an Inn.

Booked 3 nights here based on reviews from booking.com. For the price it's pretty run down, expected more. Breakfast was a joke, cold waffles, bland juice (how do you mess up juice??) we ended up at Happy Burger Diner down the road for a real breakfast. Our 2nd morning we happened to walk past where they prep breakfast and saw... More
