My wife and I arrived at this hotel after a terrible experience in Hotel Astoria in San Francisco. We were desperately hoping that this hotel would turn out to be different and had our hopes answered from the first step into the lobby.
The lobby was spacious, clean and comfortable. The night staff, Norma, was extremely helpful in getting us settled in.
The room was Heaven after our nightmare in San Francisco. Large, spacious and very clean. Bathtub, microwave oven, cable tv, and big enough to have a kitchen and living room in the room!! Internet Wi-Fi connection was strong and fast.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fantastic too. Cereal, wafers, muffins, toast, eggs, fruits, juices, coffee, tea all available for your selection. There is even a coin operated laundry room for guest to wash their clothes without leaving the comfort of the Hotel.
There was a fitness room and pool which we didn't get to use as it was too cold outside for swimming and we were too sore from hiking to exercise anymore.
The only downside would be the location. Located just outside the south gate of Yosemite, the 1 hour plus drive into the park on winding roads was fine during the day but a daunting drive back as it gets dark.
Still, the service and facilities make up for any hassles on the drive. Would definitely recommend this hotel for anybody looking for accommodation around Yosemite.
