10 days in Cabin 4 was just ideal. I was there alone, doing photography full-time. TPR was the ideal location for the upper reaches of Yosemite, the eastern Sierra and beyond. Warm, friendly people, good food (don't go looking for fine dining and a big wine list-you're in the wrong place) and very comfortable accommodation. All that you could ask... More

We love to stay here because there are lots of beautiful hikes nearby. The rooms are not cheap, but the location is great, about a mile outside the Tioga Pass gate to Yosemite and surrounded by mountains. The rooms are rustic, but the water is hot, and they offer a $5 breakfast to guests. The restaurant, like the rooms, offers... More

Rustic is a good word to describe this place. I believe this is the closest facility to the Toulumne Meadows that is akin to a motel, versus the tents at Toulumne Meadows Lodge. My room had a bathroom, but the shower was in a separate adjacent room (accessed from outside), shared with nearby guests. I didn't use the shower. If... More

We ate lunch at this resort. Delicious homemade desserts. Yummy meal.... Definitely would recommend for a good meal with lots of charm. Meatloaf sandwich was delicious. Must leave Yosemite to eat there but worth the extra mile! Would eat there again if in the area.

This is our second stay at TPR. As before, staff was warm and friendly, cabin was cold and cosy (BETTER TO NOTICE THERE IS A HEATER BEFORE YOUR FIRST NIGHT ENDS); we really liked the overall atmosphere of our cabin, though we wish we hadn't been so close to the road. Although it's out of keeping with the style of... More

This motel, which is very expansive (570$ for 3 nights for a 2 queen beds, due to the location), gives you a cabin, just in front of the parking lot and the road. The cabin is dirty, with lot of dust on the floor. The table hasn't been cleaned from the previous customers. We found their (the previous customers) shampoo... More

Overall we had a nice stay at TPR- cabin 5. I was really worried b/c a few other reviews mentioned tree rats, I did not see any such critters during the whole stay (just keep doors closed and food stored). Rooms: -relatively clean, some allergies since under the bed was dusty -nice to have a full kitchen with dishes and... More

We had one of the really rustic motel rooms in a cabin and enjoyed it a lot. The cabins are old and really simple (we had no fridge) but clean, we had no problems with the mice after putting all our eatable stuff according to the instructions in the foreseen container. Be aware that you have to cross a small... More

Very conveniently located just outside Yosemite. We arrived just before 8PM in the dark, it was hard to see the resort and find our room but were welcomed in a very friendly way. The cafe closes at 9PM in high season and 8PM in low season so make sure you arrive before if you want to have dinner. It gets... More

We stayed in Cabin 4 for two nights - and rodents (wood rats?) scampered around the cabin all night. As if the live sightings of the critters weren't enough, the abundant poops on either side of our bed, in the kitchen/dining area and in the bathroom were also testimony to their presence. I am not opposed to "rustic" but at... More

“The "rooms" are close together; we had some noise from a child in the next room (singing until well past 11pm); next time we will opt for a cabin so we have a bit more privacy.”
