The balcony outside the room with the river flowing past
Toilet leaking so we had to move rooms. New room ok, but very expensive for what was a pretty basic facility. You pay for the location.
CLOSE TO YOSEMITE..JUST A FEW MILES OUTSIDE PARK AND THE JUNCTION TO TIOGA, GLACIER PT/WAWONA AND MARIPOSA.
NO ACCESS TO WIFI WITHOUT PAYING EXTRA ESPECIALLY SINCE UNABLE TO GET CELL PHONE RECEPTION IN THE AREA. 2 BURNER STOVE BUT ONLY 1 BURNER WORKED. CARPET SHOULD BE REPLACED....LOTS OF SPOTS.
We enjoyed the hot tub and pool. We also enjoyed our view of the Merced River.
The staff was very helpful - upon checking in, the front desk staff found a better room for us, without us even asking. The kitchen amenities were just fine for a kitchenette. The location was great. The staff at the restaurant were very friendly and the food was quite good. The hotel also has several hot tubs and pools throughout the property, which were nice to soak in following a day of hiking.
The hotel is definitely old, so it could use an upgrade, but overall it was clean. The price is a bit high, but it is literally right outside the park, so that helped compensate a bit.
We have stayed here several time over the past 20 years. It is very convenient to Yosemite Valley and great to have a kitchenette.
The rooms are showing signs of age and neglect. Stained grout, a bit of mold in the shower, electrical tape on exposed wires on a lamp, peeling wallpaper, dirty carpets, broken chain on ceiling fans, heater worked intermittently. Very sad that there is no longer attention to detail in this once lovely hotel.
River view awesome. Housekeeping very accomodating
No towels or shower at pool. some construction noise early sat. a.m.
I like the location and the fact that it was really close to the Yosemite main entrance. The price was fair for the room we paid, specially since it was really close to our destination.
The room seemed to be taken out of a 1970's show. The printed wall paper along with ugly comforters and poor lighting makes you wonder what else is leaving in your room. The walls are super thin and you can hear your neighbor's every move.
We were given a free upgrade upon our arrival to King Bed, flat screen TV, fireplace, third floor w/balcony, water view, jetted xtra lge tub. We had only paid for a 2 Queen bed, mountain view room. What a pleasant stay.
Burners on stove couldn't heat enough to cook pancakes correctly. We needed (and were given upon request) a page list of TV Channel identification. Everything else was perfect.
Location, view of river, room and balcony on river, cleanliness
dinner at restaurant was poor; kitchen apparently unable to cope with medium number of customers, slow and mediocre food (rubbery chicken) altho waiter did his best.
good for watching the heron in the stream well equipped laundry restaurant and take aways available quiet location 400 yards from entrance sign for Yosemite NP El Portal was open when other entrances were closed by snow
only a basic supermarket
There is a great pizza restaurant on site.
The rooms were dirty and tired but in a great spot. We could have forgiven the stray 'personal hairs' in the shower and the blocked toilet but when we urgently needed to see a doctor the staff sent us to the medical centre in the park. The centre's website said it was closed but the staff assured us that the site was old and incorrect this misdirection added 3 hrs onto our journey to a doctor in an emergency situation.
would have been a good position in the park but a forest fire closed the road to yosemite village which meant we had to do a 2 1/2 hour detour. Room was lovely, spacious with excellent facilities.
Restaurant was expensive,poor quality & not very clean.
For a hotel outside the park, it is as close as one can get (it still takes half an hour to drive from hotel to Yosemite Village).
The high prices of the rooms.
location is good, not far away from west gate
no plate in kitchen, the room is small
Really great location, just minutes from the park entrance.
I expect to pay over the odds for such a great location, but I was annoyed by additional charges. Wifi $10 for 24hrs. Very expensive on site store. Overpriced bar and restaurant etc
near yosemite, but if u go to SF,it is sort of expens.
close to Yosemite valley, has a kitchen, spacious, Jacuzzi, indoor pool, 2 restaurants, balcony with river view.
the furniture is old, bedsheets do not look clean, the towels were so old they were falling apart. but you are not there to enjoy good towels.
Dirty towels. Dirty bloodstained bedspread
Location, close to Yosemite
Old, dumpy hotel. Needs a serious upgrade.
Raccoons broke into room during night by tearing apart the screen sliding door. Must keep the glass sliding door closed and locked. This is a known problem with management.
Most everything was good, supplies and clean as can be for older furnishings. Location can't be beat for access into the park.
Carpet needs to be replaced, just doesn't feel clean and our bed linens were a bit worn. We were surprised to see rooms listed nearly $100 less per night than what we reserved and paid over a month in advance of arrival.
We were traveling as a family with 3 children and the room was roomy and appropriate to our needs. Parking is free and available close to the rooms. our room was faced to the river and the landscape is beautiful.
The room are not that modern.
This hotel exceeded our expectations. We had a lovely large room with a balcony looking out over the river running by. ( request this if you can when booking) we also had a hot tub bath in the bedroom - not expecting that !! Restaurant was ok and take away pizzas were very nice ... But best to be prepared with your own food for breakfast and picnic for your visit to the park. ( we used the remains if the pizza we couldn't eat the night before! ) quite expensive but it is one if the few hotels near to the entrance of the national park .... Would stay there again.
The location close to Yosemite National Park was very helpful and the rooms were spacious. It was nice to have kitchenette facilities.
The beds were hard and the pillows were awful, hard and flat old foam. Our bathroom door would not open or close properly because it scraped along the carpet. Also there were mouse droppings along our balcony rail. For over $200 a night, I expected considered much better.
