The teen kids enjoyed the hot tub before turning in. A quick breakfast, speedy checkout and off to one of the most beautiful placed in the world (Yosemite). Beds were very comfortable and the room amenities were updated and modern. Would be even better if they had a place to eat the breakfast (the area is being refurbed).

The staff was helpful, and answered our questions about the area. It is a scenic, easy drive to Yosemite, about 20 minutes to the park entrance, and an hour to Yosemite village itself. Definitely recommend...

The hotel itself is very clean, the staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and they even provide an excellent buffet breakfast. For the price paid for the King/Mini-Suite I...

Excellent service and really nice people at the front desk. Would stay there again any time! There's a delicious breakfast in the morning and a Dennys at the other side of the parking lot. They even upgraded my room for free to one with terrace.
