          We stayed in Mariposa for our visit to Yosemite which was a good choice. The bathroom needed some tlc as there was a large old stain on the floor but that aside it was comfortable and quiet - lots of parking opposite the rooms.

          Both from in- and outside, this motel needs necessary maintanance. Beds are not really clean and of a bad quality. There must be much better ones on your way to Yoshemite Park. And it was not cheap at all!
