We stopped here for 1 night and found it very pretty. The room was clean and had everything we needed for the night. However if staying longer a fridge would have been helpful as the nearest store and restaurants are around 12 miles away. They are located in a lovely area with river views and a rock pool near by...

We stayed at the Yosemite Riverside Inn for two nights during the memorial day weekend. Loved the riverside location and easy access to Yosemite which was around 45 minutes to an hour drive from here. We stayed in two different rooms for the 2 nights we were there. The rooms were basic but pretty clean and we did not have...

This was a chalet type room with a small kitchen area. It had two Queen Anne beds which were very clean and comfortable. As the sign says it's by the river and it's very pleasant hearing the river flowing by. A bonus is the air conditioning which kept us nice and cool on a hot day. It was peaceful and...

Lodges in Yosemite were sold out, so we took a chance on the Yosemite Riverside Inn. It's not fancy, but the room was clean, bed was comfortable, and it was quiet. The biggest advantage is its proximity to Yosemite entrance on the north west side and price compared to other places. We had read that it was hard to find,...

We picked this room because of it's location - less than 2 hours from Yosemite Valley. Our room had a great view of the river with a couple of cheap plastic seats. The room itself was very musty smelling. The sheet were stained and had a stick spot on them. I called the front desk and the young man on...

What happened to customer service and having a conscience! We recommend staying somewhere else. We could not get to the hotel as ALL roads were closed due to a huge storm. Although the hotel was completely booked they would not refund us but I'm sure they resold the room anyway.

This place was considerable cheaper than other motels we looked at but it was an hours drive from Yosemite Park, so its OK for a short stay.The setting was lovely as there were gardens and a river with outdoor seating and BBQ area. Rooms were basic but clean. Location with regards to other amenities (eg petrol, food) was about a...

Several family members booked large apartment size rooms and cabins for a weekend getaway. We all had a great visit even though the weather did not always cooperate with our plans. The owners welcomed us and took care of all our needs and questions. Great place to relax with family and reconnect with nature and the outdoors.

I am writing the review because there isn't much information on the property. Originally I had booked a riverside cabin which looked nice in the one photo I could find. When I dug deeper I never did find or get any photos even though I asked for more information from the management, but was told the cabin was so small...

Like going back to the 50's! Comfortable enough, good location but miles from anywhere. Breakfast a little basic but OK. If you're looking for a woodland cabin experience, with no on-site restaurant, this is for you. Staff friendly and helpful but all seemed a little uncared for.. Old cathode-ray TV took up half the cabin!
