We had a Groupon for 2 nights with a $10 dining credit and were pleased to have adjoining rooms with our family. This motel is just a few minutes outside the gate into Yosemite National Park. It is nice to stay inside the Park, but this location on the river and a year-round heated pool is great for families. The front desk was very helpful and a couple of minor problems were dealt with immediately.
The restaurant was very good, but a little overpriced. I think a hamburger was $12 or 15, but the kid's menu was more reasonable. Unless you bring your own food, there isn't anywhere else to eat except in the Park. The office does have a few food items for sale.The motel is pet-friendly and because we didn't want to leave our new puppy alone in the room, we opted for take-out from the restaurant. They did an excellent job even with the soup and salad bar.
Request a ground floor room with a river-view and you will have a fenced patio on the river that is about 1/2 the size of your large room. Upstairs rooms have only a small balcony. Our room had a kitchenette with 2 burner stovetop, fridge and microwave. Oh, I almost forgot about the huge jetted jacuzzi - accommodated 4 kids and a gas fireplace that added ambience to our cold winter stay.
