Situated at the edge of Yosemite National Park, this is the perfect place to stay with your family to venture into the Park. The rooms are large and, although dated in its decor, they are very comfortable and clean. There are small kitchenettes so eating works for little ones and the rest after a big day in the Park. There is also a restaurant on site as well. At night, the whole area was lit up with fairy lights and during the day, the hotel has the mountains as a gorgeous backdrop. The rooms have great heating for winter and we were very comfortable even after a day in the snow. The heated pool was also a big hit with the kids (and the big ones too!). The gift shop is great and also stocks essentials and a few groceries.

Room Tip: Some buildings are on the river. In winter, the rooms near the heated pool are very handy.

Booked this hotel from groupon We were going to visit Yosemite national park for 3 days. Upon arrival I didn't have high expectations for this place. We arrive around 1pm and were able to check in early. Check in was quick. We walk into the room and were suprise it had a double shower/jacuzzi tub. Small kitchen with stove, mini fridge, microwave, and the necessary items to cook your own meals. Gas fireplace and a back porch overlooking the Merced river. The rooms are dated but it's location Yosemite gives it the rustic feel. Washer and dryer was also on site. This hotel had a small store and gift shop. Other reviews complaint about the fee for wifi, but people need to learn how to live without internet and see the beauty around you with the mountains and Merced river flowing feets away from you. Overall my stay here was a great experience.

I stayed here for two nights. The room was clean. It had blow dryer, a kitchenette, A/C, Balcony with two chairs, TV.
They also have an indoors pool and Jacuzzi, plus and additional jacuzzi outside. The stuff is very friendly and ready to assist quickly. We had an issue with one of the two electric burners and came right away. I also found it a bit difficult to figure out how to properly use the A/C.

The only disadvantage I found was the lack of restaurants. There is no other restaurants at or near El Portal. The only choice was their own restaurant and the convenience store within the hotel. The menu is very limited and expensive. The hotel is clean, but if you play close attention to detail, one finds the place in need of an update.
I would stay here again, only because of the service, location and price.

The first two rooms we were assigned to smelled like dog urine and triggered my allergic reactions. I am appreciative that the last option we were given was excellent. The sound insulation is excellent. The restaurants are also very good.

Oh dear! We have just completed a road trip across California and this was our worst experience. The room was grubby and comically outdated. The hot water did not work in the (double?) shower. The bathroom tap had snapped off. The sheets were unclean and I dread to think how long the top bedcover had been on the bed without a clean.
The hotel accepts no responsibility for its breakfast . 'It's a separate company' the proud receptionist replied. After our 40 minute wait for table for the evening meal (after which we entered to see half the tables empty and not set for dinner)we decided not to chance it.
A charge for WiFi on top of this left us thinking that this was the most cynically run establishment we have ever encountered.
