Stayed there in late May 2011. Good place to stop on the way from Sequoia National Park to Yosemite. Still about 45 miles to the Park, but much better than driving in from one of the larger cities for a couple hours or more. Hotel has multiple buildings, ours was a family suite with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths which was great with 2 teenage girls. A large living area was shared with other rooms in the building- could get the whole building with 5 or 6 rooms if you had a larger group. Rooms were small but clean. Pool was right out side our room and the girls enjoyed the heated pool. Check in and Check out were easy, and we were able to park right next to our building. It is a mountain town, so the nights were chilly but heat worked fine. Not a 5 start hotel, but certainly suitable for a good night sleep on the way to Yosemite, or perhaps on the way back. Room rate was reasonable for a 2 room, 2 bath suite, we just called and made arrangements the day we traveled there.
Just a block or so away are some restaurants, though Mariposa is small and stretched out. Grabbed Subway sandwiches for our lunch in Yosemite. Good grocery store though you'll need directions, not on the main road. Smaller store, part of liquor store, is just south of the hotel. Also has a drug store on the east end of town.
