Had a great stay at the hotel. Staff very friendly. Gave me a dog dish, ball and treats for my dog! Clean and in a safe location. Staff gave me printed directions to Yosemite. Nice clean pool and hot tub.

Very helpful and friendly staff. Great breakfast options in the restaurant on site. The pool was cold, but this didn't seem to bother the children at all. Rooms well appointed. Great location for exploring the surrounding countryside.

Nice place to spend the night before getting an early start to Yosemite the next morning. Great breakfast (included) option was much appreciated, not some lame cold cereal and toast, but sit down robust diner breakfast choices.
