The purpose of this trip was to take my elderly mom to see Yosemite (hopefully not) one last time. As a result, camping was not an option; the dirt ground is bad for her back (but it's great for mine).
I had spent a night here once before way back in '01, and remembered it being moderately priced and only a one-hour stone's throw away from the valley. Sure enough, the place remains clean and it hasn't moved any further away from the park.
We wanted to spend as much time as possible outdoors, so we were out early in the morning and didn't get back till late. That meant we didn't partake of all the amenities, such as the free breakfast or swimming pool, but as far as the room is concerned, it was very clean and comfortable. It had a fridge (which protected my Whopper from spoilage), a microwave (which came in handy when I remembered I left a Whopper in the fridge), and a coffee maker with not-that-bad coffee pouches.
Unfortunately, since it was Memorial Day weekend, we also couldn't find any rooms on the first floor, so my mom had to slowly climb the stairs up to the second floor, but she hacked it just fine.
The two occasions I interacted with the staff was when I checked in, then out. Both times they were very friendly, so I give them bonus points for that.
So in conclusion, personally, I like staying in a tent, but when that's not possible, I'd def recommend Days Inn Yosemite Sierra Inn.
