You really need to understand location for this one. Yosemite park is about 20 minutes away, but Yosemite Valley is about 80 minutes away. Accommodations in the park book very far in advance. That means that this place (which is somewhat dated but nice) rents for about $100 more than the room would be worth elsewhere. The staff is very... More

During our roadtrip we did plan to stay in Yosemite for two days during the peak in august. The hotel is good and is split into various lodges which are surrounded by vegetation and gardens. Outdoor and Indoor swimming pools are perfect after a long day of hiking. If you do not want to go to restaurants, there is a... More

I picked this hotel because it was one of the stop off points for Yosemite tour we were taking the following day. The hotel is located on the main highway and accessible right from the roadside. There is a good selection of shops, restaurants and gas station all within walking distance of the hotel. The hotel itself is quite quirky... More

Our room double room was a nice size, updated, huge bathroom, cold a/c and a balcony with a mountain view. We didn't eat at the on site restaurant... More

Nice hotel/motel with fairly big rooms and a nice balcony in the back. Comfortabele beds, cussions not so. No breakfast included but the little kitchenette allows you make your own. No cuttlery though. Room was clean for the most part, but not everywhere. We saw spiderwebs hanging from the ceiling. Also a bit dated. Nevertheless o.k. place to stay if... More

This property is large and appears to have it all. We only utilized the room. At check in the clerk gave her son cash in the middle of our transaction. She was polite about it. Our room lacked natural light. It appeared clean under lamp lights. We had to move a table to use the weak air conditioner. Good nights... More

Nice woodland view and in a good position for visiting Yosemite park. Laundrette useful, near pool area too. 2nd floor room, without lifts, may be tricky for older people with suitcases. Meal in hotel disappointing - my husbands wasnt hot enough so he sent it back.Called at Tenaya Lodge for brunch on way to park. Good value 20 dollars, nice... More

Nice hotel with rustic feel to rooms. Clean and super friendly staff. The only complaint is that both pools were so full of chlorine it was unbearable to go in the water. The indoor pool was especially pungent, practically smacking you in the face when you open the door.
