We stayed in room 202 for one night on our way into Yosemite. Location of hotel is acceptable-was about 1 hour from Yosemite valley floor in little traffic. Upon check-in, the room seemed acceptable. Liked the tile floor at the entrance and bathroom area. No apparent problems that evening. However, in the morning, we found that ANTS had found our breakfast that we had brought into our room the night before. There were 500+ ants crawling up the wall, on the ceiling, all over the microwave/coffee area. And all over inside and outside of our donut packs! It was very gross and unacceptable! When I tried discussing it with the front desk upon checkout, I wasn't offered any apologies. I was told that I should not have taken food into my room, or ants would get it. I was told they had a pesticide company working to get rid of the ants, but I shouldn't have brought food into the room. Needless to say, no apologies or refunds were offered and I felt like I was being told it was my issue, not the hotel's. For this reason, I cannot recommend this hotel and would definitely not stay here again.
