“Better than expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

Yes it's a bit dated but room was spacious and clean. Check in was efficient. Restaurant was fine and service after a slow start was good. Food was ok if a bit pricey. Quite a trek to Yosemite Village but only 30 minutes from Mariposa Grove. Breakfast was included but wouldn't pay for it as choice is very limited. Overall good for money.

New section had gaps between the door jamb and door which let in light, air (in winter that will be an issue) and noise. I didn't sleep well with the noise or light. My family and I had problems with dustmites after our night. I think that if they dealt with those two items then I wouldn't mind coming back to the hotel when in the area. Staff were helpful but I didn't check out and so I am not sure if husband told them of our difficulties. Food was ok in their restaurant and waitress Karen was a hard worker.

Beautiful Lobby and beautiful , clean room. Good breakfast, but it is not included. People who stay here get 25% of any meals they buy. Indoor pool and hot tub are nice. Outside hot tub was closed, which was a disappointment. Grounds are nicely landscaped. It is about 50 min. to entrance to Yosemite and then another 30 minutes to the valley floor and the drive is very curvy.

Located in Oakhurst, close to restaurants and shops and grocery stores. Would recommend, especially for the cheaper price compared to many hotels in the same area. Comfy beds. Air conditioner worked great. About a half hour drive to Yosemite park entrance.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 129 I think. It was on the west side of the hotel, opposite end of the pool. So it...

Our ground floor room was spacious, clean and quiet. Sharon at check in was very helpful and friendly.

There aren't a lot of options for eating nearby. We ate at the South Gate brew pub and had quite a decent pizza.

Our room had a large mural painted by one of the owners. I have o idea if they are in every room.

Overall, our stay was good, but it is pricey for what you get.

Very nice staff and hotel; overall satisfactory experience and would recommend. After check-out the hotel staff allowed to park car in the parking lot for rest of day. Had no problems with the stay, would recommend to book as early as possible in order to get better rate.

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. We were in room 117 which is next to both the indoor and outdoor pools but also next to the vending machines and hotel laundry. The air con was very noisy and there were some interesting stains on the carpet. That said the beds were comfy and the room had both a fridge & microwave. The room was clean but a bit drab and tired. Other members of our party had one of the disabled rooms in the new block close to the restaurant and this was very spacious and all together lighter and more cheerful.
We had a breakfast included, which was unexpected but did prove a bit limited as it didn't vary.
The pool area was nice but not very big.
All in all it was ok but I won't be rushing back there.

Room Tip: It's a large site. Upper floor rooms look nicer as they have a balcony. Room numbers 135 &...
