Reviewed May 3, 2012

I found this hotel clean and simple. There are no frills. It is just simply a place to spend the night. I had no complaints.

all the hotels nearby the park were very expensive. This one was cheap (115$ night) and it has a big and very nice room, m-wave and fridge. Breakfast was served in a new building next to the lobby, very good and extended continental breakfast. We spent 2 nights but did not get our room clean and new towels after the first day so I had to call and get the towels.. It was a little noisy because the doors were very cheap .

Room Tip: ask for last floor, less noise .

an old motel that has been remodelled in places. complimentary breakfast was not great but OK
room was a bit noisy. if you need to stay in Mariposa there did not seem to be many other choices. internet was very fast (best we have used) and complimentary.

Room Tip: stairs may be a problem.

This is a motel situated on the main road into Mariposa. We stayed there for two nights while visiting Yosemite. The rooms were adequate for a motel. The wifi system was so slow as to be largely unusable. Breakfast was served in a large room of a building adjacent to the motel. This room was unheated when we were there and most of the guests needed to keep their outdoor jackets on to keep warm. Also, I think this is the first hotel I have ever stayed which only provided plastic disposable plates, cups and cutlery!!

This is an old motel. There was some attempt at renovation but overall the attempt fails. It was one of the most expenive hotels we had in a two week trip. Breakfast was in a seperate building up a hill. There was a bus load of loud foreign tourists that made sleep difficult. This is one of the worst hotels I've stayed in some time.

We stayed in this motel on our way to Yosemite and can recommend it to anyone who needs a cheap place to crash before he journey to the park.
The staff was friendly, the room was really big and clean and the breakfast was what you would expect in such a motel (continental, including some of those waffle machines). The only thing which bothered us a bit was that the door was somehow crooked (you had to lift it a bit in order to close it) and that the WiFi internet access didn't work on both our laptops and smartphones. However, we didn't complain about the internet, so I can't say if they would have been able to fix it easily. Additionally they were renovating the rooms on the back but we didn't hear any noise at all in our room.
On the plus side, the location was great, right next to "downtown" with several restaurants and shops in walking distance.

A very nice room with nice bedding. The only bad thing is the exterior entries. The breakfast was only fair with not much for choices. Overall we were satisfied and would stay here again.
