I stayed at the Yosemite Inn during a two days trip to the Yosemite Park. The hotel is very clean with large bedrooms and very good bathroom, which is everything I needed after a day at this beautiful park. The staff is friendly and the prices are also very good. It has a good breakfast with delicious waffle. I would definitely stay at the Yosemite Inn again for a short trip like this.

We escaped here after the accommodation that we were in became too hot due to the heatwave. Yosemite Inn was clean, spacious and comfortable. It wasn't beautiful to look at and we normally prefer more quirky places - however, there was something very relaxing being here after days in Yosemite.

Another thing to note is that the people who run this motel are particularly lovely. We were having airline problems when we were staying there and they could not have been more helpful in putting calls through late at night.

Spent two nights at the Yosemite Inn in June. Picked this place because I tried others and they were booked up. The only thing I knew of this place was what I had read on tripadvisor. Arrived at the motel and was a lilttle disappointed when we first saw it. It looked more like a prison compound from the street. However, once we entered the grounds it looked quite nice with plenty of parking. The room we reserved was much larger than I expected and was very modern and comfortable. Everything seemed to be very clean. We couldn't have been happier with the room from those standpoints. The only problem we had was when we arrived the refrigerator was turned off. We had to turn it on and these motel ref. are notorious for taking a long time to cool down. As a result we could not cool down our drinks until the next day. Had to use our cooler and ice until the next day.
As has been mentioned, the "free" breakfast was very basic and the room where it is located is very small. We took ours to the room the first day and skipped it the next in favor of a Burger King down the road.
Overall the stay was good and I would stay here again. They just need to take care of these minor problems to make it a real good place to stay.

Convenient location, right off the main road to Yosemite. Rooms were nIce, clean, and quiet rooms. We would like to make a suggestion, try to keep the mattress on the bed, they keep sliding off of platform.

Nice room; very clean; comfortable beds. Breakfast is simple but good. The only negative point is the noisy airco.
Even if you switch it off, there us still the noise of the airco from the rooms next door.

We stayed one night in May whilst visiting Yosemite National Park, it takes around 50 minutes to get to the accommodation from the El Portal entrance to Yosemite, to be honest it's a bit of a trek if you're travelling to Yosemite each day. We used this place for our accommodation when exiting the park.

Check in was efficient, staff are not overly friendly, the king room was very clean as were the sheets and towels. The room was actually much larger and more modern than we expected and room included a sofa. It felt as though the room had been recently refurbished. There was a fridge and microwave in the room and the included wifi was fast and reliable and there were loads of cable TV channels to choose from. We stayed in a ground floor room, there is plenty of free parking available and our stay was very peaceful.

The included breakfast was a bit disappointing - very very basic and the room is very small . It was available until 9am and consisted of cereal, waffles, yoghurts, toast and pastries.

All in all we had a good, comfortable and peaceful nights sleep. We would stay here again and recommend it.

We had such a good night's stay here that when we extended our stay at Yosemite we went back for a second night. The room was spotless and very quiet. Everything was up to date: new television and fresh paint. We had a refrigerator which was great. The only negative was the breakfast: no protein, didn't keep the coffee refilled (but did when asked), and no healthy cereal. If you like fresh waffles and pastries then the breakfast is for you. There also was no coffee maker in the room. With those being such minor inconveniences, I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to my friends.
