Three of us had a very good 2 night stay here, using the motel as our base for a Tuolumne River white water rafting trip with AO Rafting.
Our double queen room had a 1 person futon sofa bed, air conditioning, dinette table, microwave, mini fridge, coffee maker, and updated tile bathroom. Outdoor pool and spa are great amenities to come back to. No complaints. But expect to pay +$200 during summer weekend.
We would say this is the best motel accommodation on Hwy 120 on the approach to Yosemite. About 1 hour drive to the Yosemite Valley floor, add an extra 90 min more if visiting on a Saturday as Valley traffic is horrible beginning at El Capitan on Saturdays. Everything else is either a B&B or very rustic and funky. Will definitely stay again.
