Reviewed 7 October 2015

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 bridge and drive up a small steep dirt road (we enjoyed it but it might be challenging for small cars or inexperienced continental drivers). You can certainly walk up but as you should not leave anything tempting the bears inside your car, this might be strenuous. The location is really great, the staff at the receiption also rustic but friendly. The bed was comfy, however we woke up several times due to sounds of animals around the cabin in the night (no idea what it was but we found it exiting). We had a heater which we needed and a clean shared shower, but a privat lavatory. The price it a bit high, but well, it's at the height of Tioga pass, historic and opened only few months a year. We would come here again.

Room Tip: Room 1 was fine, it sleeps 3 and we had on the extra bed enough space for out luggage and items we w...

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 cold at night but extra blankets are provided. Rooms are far from sound proof but ok otherwise - though very rustic and basic. Shared shower for the rooms, just so you are aware ;)

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 200+ a night, this is not what we were paying for. I am awaiting response from the management who thus far has been unresponsive to this concern. I suspect TRP was managed with more care when it was privately run. Would have been better to stay in Yosemite or to take the beautiful drive into Lee Vining where there are more options.

We are day hikers but not campers and so were so happy when we found this place right outside of the east entrance to Yosemite. It is just a couple miles past it- super convenient, especially when the only other options are down in Lee Vining. This is at the TOP of the pass so it's a very easy quick drive back I to the park. Cabins are adorable and well maintained. It was COLD when we were here (35 at night) in July but they have adequate heaters and lots of blankets. Staff is very helpful. The restaurant is very good but a bit pricey for us...we ended up getting groceries in the park and making most of our meals,

On our way to Yosemite we spent one night here in one of the single rooms. Bed was comfortable although It can get very cold at night. The outside shower was experience...;) The staff at the cafe was very friendly and we could check in early. The food for dinner and breakfast was simple but tasty. Very good granola for breakfast!!!
