I stayed here for 2 nights back in June 2016. The hotel itself was average with a small buffet breakfast area. There was no bar or proper lounge, it had more of a hostel feel. However it was clean and well maintained. I had some issues with my booking and when I arrived my 'pay at hotel' booking had been...

This hotel is perfect for a short stay. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and the simple continental breakfast just enough. It included fresh fruit, cereal, bread/muffins, fruit juices and coffee. We will certainly stay here again.

This hotel has a nice fireplace in the lobby. The staff was very helpful. We had a first floor room, right off the pool and hot tub. The room was large, nicely appointed, and very clean. There were some extras like: a vanity with seat, microwave, bar, and refrigerator. Continental breakfast was included. We would definitely stay here again!

This is a very good choice to stay while visiting Yosemite. Hotel is all indoors, spacious lobby, free basic breakfast (cereal, toast, pastries, juice) and clean, comfortable rooms. The only downside (and it's very minor) is while they have a modern HD TV, the cable (Direct TV) is standard definition, making for a very grainy viewing experience.

This hotel was excellent. The staffs allowed us to check in early before heading to Yosemite. The room was nice and big with microwave, sink, refrigerator, and coffee maker. The bed was comfortable including the sofa bed. They also have a gym, indoor sauna and steam room. They have a pool outdoors and jacuzzi which is closed in the winter.

Nice hotel, very friendly and helpful staff, very spacious rooms. The hotel is clean, the breakfast is OK. Lots of restaurants and shops close-by. Great location for visitors of the Yosemite National Park. The only complaint is that the intermediate floor/ceiling was not sound-proof and the people in the room above ours were making a lot of noise during the...

First hotel on our two week long road trip for which I have no complaints. Room was big and clean. Location was close to the Park. Service was friendly. The only thing is that the continental breakfast was a little bare. Would 100% stay again.
