We normally travel to Yosemite via Hwy 140 and stay at a place in El Portal. My husband, is generally very picky, and really hates that place we usually stay at (which is also twice the price of...

This is a good, quiet option for visiting Yosemite, although it is 1 hour drive to the entree. Our room was spacious, with comfy beds, but we missed a table and another chair since we were 3 adults in the room with just 1 chair and 1 armchair. Taking breakfast in the room, was not comfortable. And there is no...

Cracking 3 nights stay. We did our research on trip advisor and it lived up to expectations. Room was very comfortable with good shower. Good night was had downstairs in the bar, food and drink was excellent. Only an hours drive into Yosemite Valley, but this was in October so guessing longer in peak season.

Nothing fancy but the location so close to the park was fantastic. And the price was so incredible.
