Score from 291 reviews Very good
It's proximity to yosemite and cheap price.
carpet and sink/bathroom fixtures are outdated. No microwave.
1. Good location fairly near Yosemite's entrance 2. Comfortable and clean room 3. Very beautifully decorated common room with colourful Xmas trees
Internet extremely slow and intermittent - cannot even surf normal news webpages and load emails
The room was large with plenty of counter space in the bath. There was a frig but no microwave.
I guess we visited in the 'off' season as there were not many guests around which may be the reason that the grill looked uninviting, trash around the door and when we did a walk through no one approached us to offer seating or a menu. The restaurant was closed.
Every thing, the location,the facilities, the staff, the services, the rates,
good service and clean rooms
the food in the compound restaurant was somewhat poor
The rates applied to a 2 queen bed room in December made this hotel very good value for money. It is an older but very well maintained facility that we found clean and comfortable. The heated pool and spa were a bonus.
Cheap, swimming indoor and outdoor, hot tub
The rooms are a bit cold and the heating system is noisy
Cleanliness and peace of the place
pool was cold )) maybe its November?
We went off season, so price of room was $80 for 4 persons (2 queen beds). Good value for a clean, older accommodation. But the high season, the same room will cost $260/nite---that's a ripoff.
No nearby dining except for the on-site restaurant. Breakfast buffet was excellent, but higher priced at $13, dinner was not good (burger grill-type food, tasteless and poorly prepared)
Very comfortable bed. Fairly close to Yosemite. Nice river access. Excellent shampoo and soaps Clean warm showers Green certified restaurant Indoor pool (though I didn't test it out) Minimal noise from adjacent rooms. Minimal noise from highway. Easy to find Nice landscaping. Plenty of convenient parking. Pleasant staff. Fridge is on the large side.
Pay for wifi. Pay for coffee. Notably few electrical outlets (one easily accessible in the bathroom, one if you pull out a bed, one behind the TV stand).
Beautiful location, quiet and clean. My son loved the little train set up right in front of our room.
The restaurant was closed when we were there
The room was clean and quiet. The jacuzzi and swimming pool were very pleasant
The breakfast wasn't included in the room rate. You have to pay too many surprise cost: $11.95 for the buffet didn't include the drinks; which was not explained. We paid $35 for 2 people for breakfast when told $11.95 per person. It's just a SCANDAL!
Decent hotel that's relatively close to Yosemite. Its a bit dated but better than camping.
The Towels were hung to dry and were rough. Maid didn't refill our coffee supplies.
No hot water
Nearly every electrical appliances provided though a bit old, say, microoven, but all in good condition. Matress is super that's what I want to share the most.
Electric wires are old and light a bit outdated. Breakfast doesn't have much choices except cereal, milk and these stuff available in the grocery. They don't cook anything for you , maybe it's because I was traveling in the low season
The location and the ambiance with the carved bears and other animals.
The Wi-Fi was too expensive for overnight and there was no cell service. The Cable TV had poor reception with very few viewable stations. Parents with kids would have a problem unless they brought a DVD player with them.
the hot tub
The TV quality was horrendous. We were so excited to relax and watch HBO. Terrible picture quality on the TV.
Excellent value for budget travel. kids really like the pool!
Was a great lodge to rest on our big drive from Bakersfield. Perfect location to wake up and begin our day driving through Yosemite! The restaurant had amazing dinner and brekkie. Shame breakfast isn't included in the booking as there is no where else nearby to eat. The bed and room was amazingly big and comfy!
cost of hotel was great
the buffet at the restaurant was a waste of money food was very cold and to expensive for what you got . dont waste yout time...
Location, nice, large and heated indoor pool and spa good to relax in the evening
Extra cost for WiFi 9.95 per day.
There was no hot water! We stayed at the hotel after a day in Yosemite park and we couldn't have a shower because there was no hot water... such a shame...
No free wi-fi, nothing is free even a cup of coffee
Got a special offer.
No microwave in the room. The wifi costs 10 usd a day and it is rather slow. Getting a burger at the lodge restaurant took more than an hour even if it was almost empty. With no special offer it is way more worth staying in an accommodation inside the park.
