“Great!”
Reviewed May 7, 2010

The beds are very comfortable and the rooms are very nice and clean. I love the breakfast in the morning when I wake up. I am able to grab my food and go back into my room to eat or they have a great breakfast seating area. The front desk is very nice and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going out to Chowchilla, CA.

A very enjoyable experience for my adult son and myself. When we decided to spend an exta day in the area there was absoulutely no problem extending our stay. From the time we checked in until we checked out, all of the staff we talked with was very pleasant and gave the impression they were glad we were there.

This is a brand new hotel off Hwy 99 with impeccable facilities: comfortable beds, complementary WiFi access, equipped with a refrigerator and a microwave in every room and continental breakfast buffet.

We were on a hiking trip to Yosemite and decided to stay at HI in Chowchilla because it’d offered great amenities, had gotten raving reviews, and we didn’t want to spend exorbitant amount of money to stay in the park at a hotel that offers same amenities.

However, it is, as one reviewer had already mentioned, in the middle of nowhere, and it took a lot longer to drive to Yosemite Village than we’d anticipated, about 2 ½ hours vs. an hour as stated when we Google maped it.

Driving to the park was not as nearly as bad as the drive back after a long day of hiking, and staying in Chowchilla definitely limited our dining options, as there are only fast food restaurants.

Also, the hotel is located near the train tracks and a small airport, and although the facilities are new, they did not do a good job sound proofing the windows. Unfortunately, there was a train going by almost hourly, and the noise was definitely bothersome throughout the night.

I would recommend the hotel only if you’re looking for a comfortable place to stay for 1 night, and if you’re a deep sleeper, but those looking for more dining options or looking to get goodnights sleep should opt to stay in Merced or one of the bigger towns near by.

We arrived bone tired after a long day at Yosemite to find this absolutely beautiful hotel in the middle of nowhere! The room was beautiful, the free breakfast was hot and bountiful, all of the facilities were sparkling clean. Best of all the hotel was less expensive than any other place near Yosemite.

Happy that I stayed here on my vacation. This was a last minute decision and I'm glad I made it. Comfortable plush beds, great staff and even a little kitchenette lounge with everything you would need. And breakfast to boot, for cheaper than most other hotels. Glad I stayed.

I never write reviews but this hotel was impressive and I have to let everyone know that I have never been treated this great at any other hotel. They really do care about everyone staying there. The hotel is brand new so everything is nice. The rooms are clean and very spacous. It was convenient for me that they had a great breakfast with biscuits and gravy. I am going to come back with my family and visit Yosemite National Park.
