“Average but driving distance to Yosemite ”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

The room was spacious, there is not much to complain about. The city has a limited number of rooms. The walls are very, very thin! All I can say is average. About a 45 min drive to the park. The staff was pleasant and breakfast was average. Sells beer and few souvenirs.

Great place to stay for the night on our way to Yosemite. Appreciated the late night check in and friendly staff. :-) Bed was comfortable, enjoyed the lunar eclipse that one of the staff was talking about. Breakfast was good too. :-)

We were limited in our hotel choices of hotels by the fact that we travel with a large breed dog. That being said we found the Miners Inn clean and comfortable but very dated. They have limited internet service throughout the hotel . . .our room didn't have it. The breakfast area was large and had ample seating but the selections were waffles or cold cereal or toast. The shower head is meant for someone 5' . . . my husband is nearly 6'. There was a remote for the heat with no instructions and it wasn't obvious how to get it to work. I wouldn't stay here again.

Best small hotel found in years of US travels. Room fantastically appointed in every way. Large & roomy. Perfect finish on all decor. Furnishings & equipment excellent, including great jacuzzi & separate toilet/ shower suite. Kitchen/ dinner fully functionable & clean. Top marks due.

Miners Inn is the first hotel you will find in Mariposa when coming from the Yosemite National Park. It has clean and large rooms for a very affordable price and a very friendly atmosphere. The complementary breakfast is - for this type of hotel/motel - very good. We can also recommend the attached restaurant, Miners Roadhouse 140.

Room Tip: Generally the rooms do not have WiFi (yet). However, our room was close enough to the pool for using...

Great value for the money. Breakfast was included. Clean room and bath. One exception was the very short shower. At 5'7" I had to duck to get under the shower head. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Pretty drive to Yosemite national park.

Clean comfortable hotel 45 minutes from Yosemite entrance and 1 hour from the Valley. Decent breakfast to get your day started. Waffles, hard boiled eggs, cereals, toast, and oat meals. Would definately stay here again.
