This is a property that runs up pros and runs up cons much too easily, as many of these reviews attest. Pros: Proximity to the park, lovely location along Merced River, large rooms with kitchenettes, multiple pools and spas (though not all appear to have been open last week), onsite restaurant and bar and grocery store (quality issues aside, at...

The overwhelming feeling I got from this hotel and its employees is they know you have no other choice but to stay there, so you will take what you can get. We stayed at this hotel for one night due to road closures in the park and I am glad it was only for one night. The hotel was understaffed,...

I was calling to change my reservation this coming July. My plans had changed and I needled to add a day. The first time I called I explained my situation and the lady(Marisela) put me on hold without taking my name or the date I wished to add. I was on hold for 11 minutes. So I hang up and...

Great location just a few minutes from Valley entrance. Make sure you get a room away from the road - our room faced the road and felt like cars were driving through it. Room itself was decent with a little kitchenette but the towels were like sandpaper.

I can't complain, except it is a little overpriced but I think everything in Yosemite is. The hotel is better than what the pictures show. Our room, standard 2-queen, was comfortable and clean. No weird smells or other unpleasant surprises. The kitchenettes are well-equipped. The bathroom was spacious. As others have mentioned, there are two restaurants onsite. We tried the...

If you are booking a hotel for the location alone you cannot beat this one. But if you are looking for luxury its not for you. The rooms are on the basic side. They are clean but definitely no frills. Our room had two double beds and a kitchenette which was handy. Our balcony was on the road side and...

We just spent two nights here and my overall impression is that it just needs a good cleaning. I can handle tired decor, but stains on the sheets, crumbs on the carpet, weird stuff (I'm trying hard not to think of what it really was) on tables and walls, leftover food from previous guests in the mini-fridge, random acts of...

One star is too good for this place! However I will say the location was beautiful but unfortunately not worth a stay in the hotel. The accommodation was disgusting, run down and the room was just filthy. There was finger nail clippings all over the floor from previous guests. Blood stains on the doors. The bedding and towels were yellow,...

Location just outside Yosemite National Park was excellent. Room provided was clean and basic. Limited options for food included a pizza place and a restaurant. The food store was very limited in supplies and over the 3 nights we stayed, we didn't notice any improvement in stock. The kids enjoyed the heated indoor pool and spa but the towels provided...

This hotel is a good option if you don't mind 1980's style rooms and lumpy pillows. Being on the river is nice and most of the rooms have balconies. Plus, it's as close to Yosemite as you can get without staying in the park. Nonetheless, I would rather plan ahead and book a hotel inside the park but the reservations...
