The family suites are a great value. This is a great place to stay if you want to go into Yosemite for the day. It is also a great stopping point if you are driving through Yosemite. We have two young children and we love to take them to Yosemite to play in the snow in Badger Pass. We have...

Accommodating staff, beautiful grounds, clean rooms, fair pricing, restaurant & Lounge on the premises--what more could you want. Room types--there's something for everyone. Note, the grounds are on a hillside, 2 floors in some areas and there are no elevators so if you have mobility issues you may want to call and ask a lot of questions. Also, the restaurant...

We reserved 4 rooms for one night and were surprised that the rooms are much better than that of the average Best Western hotels. The setting is very nice as well. The Chinese restaurant next door is also a surprise for a very good Chinese diner. Over all, quite a nice experience.

I've stayed at this hotel every time I've visited Yosemite. Spending the first night here allows for early access to the park. The hotel is comfortable, it has the necessary amenities, and the staff is great.

We made this hotel our basecamp for our visit to Yosemite which is a nice 15 min or so drive away from the hotel. You can park next to your room, very convenient to load stuff into your car for hiking and snow fun. The rooms are clean and spacious also come with a microwave and a mini fridge. The...

We have stayed at this hotel several times over the last 17 years. These were the nicest rooms we have had. Can't wait to go back again. We accidentally left a pillow in the room when we departed. Upon our return the next day they went out of their way to find it for us. Thank You!
