We stayed here one night on a road trip from Colorado to California. We wanted to be close to Yosemite for a drive over Tioga Pass the next morning. It was a good location for us and after a long day of driving, it was nice to be able to just walk to the hotel restaurant without having to get in the car again. We sat on the balcony at the restaurant and enjoyed a glass of wine before dinner, staying outside long enough to see the moon rise over the lake. The view of the lake is somewhat obscured by trees, but we were able to see the moon and part of the lake and that was nice. Yes, there is a busy highway right next to the hotel and restaurant, between the buildings and the lake. It can be a bit noisy, but quiets down later on. The noise didn't really bother us during the night. We had a nice dinner at the restaurant and found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. Our room was the Kit Carson room, in one of the cabins. The room was simple, but had nice, knotty pine furnishings. There was no phone, or TV, or wifi, but we knew that when we booked it. Wifi was available at the lobby and restaurant, but we found that the signal was pretty weak. We weren't too worried about not having wifi for this one night, but the hotel wouldn't be a good choice if wifi is important. We could see a bit of the lake from the porch of our cabin, but the view was partially obscured by trees. Overall, we found this a pleasant place to stay that was convenient for our travel the next day over Tioga Pass.
