“Great place to stay around Yosemite”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

I was there with couple of my friends visiting Yosemite. Staff was very friendly, and the rooms were excellent. Nice location as well, on top of the hill overlooking the town of mariposa. Lots of nice restuarants to eat around. The breakfast had lot of variety and is excellent. Great Value for money.

Location is convenient and interesting drive to Yosemite. Staff was very helpful in finding local eating establishments and were knowledgeable about park. Rooms were clean but older design with limited parking. Breakfast was good.

This motel is located at the top of a hill overlooking the quaint town of Mariposa. The management is very helpful and welcoming upon our arrival. It is a two block walk to town but is pretty steep for the elderly. Best to take the car if you have physical handicaps. We would return for a night away from the business since it is only a forty-five minute drive from our city. In another forty-five minutes you can enter Yosemite National Park. We love the Sunday brunch at Miner's Inn although the Inn offers the standard motel breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the ground level. There are no elevators. Rooms at the rear of the motel are good...

Great little place to stop for a night of two. Mariposa has some great food too! Management was nice, rooms were clean and quite, and the area seemed safe and fun loving. Would definitely recommend! Check out the town too, people are great and the Sugar Pine Cafe is fantastic!

We’re one block from historic downtown Mariposa, our rooms are clean and quiet, and deluxe breakfast buffet is included. Mariposa is a great place so come on back!

Stayed for one night only upon exiting Yosemite National Park. Jo on reception was very welcoming and suggestive with places in the local area to go out for a drink and decent meal.

The room was comfortable with fast wifi and string heater. Couldn't use it during the night though as it was extremely loud! One suggestion would be to change the light bulb fittings to something more subtle - they were quite fluorescent and unsightly.

Breakfast was okay - consisted of all the regular continental offerings plus sausages and scrambled eggs.

Highly recommend the Alley wine bar down the street for a tipple after exploring the Park all day!

Had a last minute reschedule at Yosemite Park because of the wildfires and was lucky to come across this hotel. Very accommodating staff that went out of their way to make arrangements for our group. Suites were clean and well maintained, and throwing in breakfast was great.
