The beds were comfortable and our room was very clean on arrival. The outdoor pool was clean and refreshing after a day of driving. It was a perfect place to begin our trip to Yosemite. We would stay here again if we had the chance.

We stayed the night of 9/12 and was welcomed at arrival. After moving our luggage into the room, we went downstairs and found there was menus of all local restaurants in the area. This was a nice thing for the ownership to do. Our room was really a suite with all the room it included. We did find that the... More

I stayed at this hotel towards the end of August 2016 beginning of September 2016. It was a beautiful hotel. The front desk lady was wonderful. However, we got to our room there was water all over our bathroom floor as if someone had taken a shower or something of that sort. There were like 10 pieces of hair on... More

Was in town for our son's wedding and had the family stay in several rooms at this property. Is was clean, comfortable, friendly and well equipped in the midst of town surrounded by restaurants and other services. We really enjoyed the stay and would highly recommend it for others. Continental breakfast is a bit skimpy but adequate to get the... More

We spent one night here after driving through Yosemite. We had a large room with a comfortable king size bed. The room was clean and quiet. It's not all new but everything worked and it didn't smell stale. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Our morning breakfast was muffins & coffee. I believe there were more selections offered.... More

Big and clean room to accommodate 5 people ( with rollaway) Great location outside the park. Reasonable prices, they even give discount if your kid made the high honor roll when you book on line -nice idea!! Breakfast area could be improved -too small and so the menu .

This hotel is a good option if you want to avoid the high prices of accommodation in Yosemite Park during high season. It is about a one and a half hour drive to Yosemite Valley or Glacier Point. It is a nice drive with good views. Easy check in and out, with pleasant reception staff. The room was really big.... More
