We felt it was a 'take or leave' attitude. I suppose because so many traveling tourists come from the coast on their way to Yosemite that they have... More

The room was clean and the upgrade was helpful traveling with two teenagers. The breakfast in the morning is always a bonus and the coffee is always good. The location was perfect for our trip into Yosemite.
