Paid Wifi. Ongoing Refurbishment of Entrance Lobby Desk Staff not very friendly and helpful.
The place is very close to Yosemite Village (about 15min), it has a very good restaurant and also a pizzeria. Very large rooms with fully equipped kitchens.
The room was a little over priced but close access to the park entrance which was nice.
Lorena at the front desk helped us at check in. She was awesome! We upgraded our room from Mountain View to River View and so happy we did that. It was so beautiful.
No pillows very dusty
The restaurants and hotel store are extremely overpriced. The food quality was poor-average especially given the price. The food and beer inside the park was much more reasonably priced than the hotel outside! Seems strange! Come prepared with food and cook your own thing in the kitchenette.
Great location- only better would be inside the valley but much more expensive. Only about a 5 minute drive to park entrance. There are some villages that are also close to the park, but not as easy to access Yosemite village. We had a great patio area that overlooked the stunning Merced river- a lovely way to unwind at the end of a long day of walking. We didn't use the paid wifi as it was fairly expensive. the guy in the hotel store gave great advice to go to Prospectors Brewery in Mariposa which was a lovely place with great beer. Stop there if you can (and access all the free wifi in Mariposa!)
Towels are quite old and not too absorbent.
the merced river flows at the back of this hotel. You can hear the flowing of the river.
Main desk staff weren't very friendly. Outside could be cleaner. Couldn't believe we had to pay for WIFI and only one person could use it.
Closeness to Yosemite. Good breakfast buffet.
Food options not brilliant.
Really good place to stay for the cost. Basic but clean and cleaned/refreshed daily. Would definitely go back.
We stayed in the Sequoia section. It was very clean. Were quite surprised to find it located right on a beautiful rushing river. A sliding glass door opened to a lani that was only about 30 from the river. The bathroom included a jacuzzi tub. This room was a great value for $129.
The beds were very hard and the towels like sand paper!
We were pleasantly surprised! Clean rooms, right on the river, pet friendly, restaurant and pizza place on site a plus (not much to eat in the park) So close to Yosemite, easy drive in! Pools and arcade were also a bonus at night.
Dinner was so-so. You could do better for the money, though there really aren't any other restaurants around in El Portal. Pay a little more and go to the Mountain Room in the Valley. Comforters on beds were low quality and stiff. Clean, but not as comfortable as I would like.
While this isn't the highest quality hotel, it was very nice. The best pry was our room with the balcony facing the river. I could spend all day in thy balcony watching and listening to the river. It was wonderful. Rooms were clean, kitchenette was nice. Having a sink, microwave, and even plates provided was nice - especially because we have a 5 month old. There was a even a two burner range though we didn't use it. Restaurant has really nice attentive staff. Buffet breakfast was pretty good. Spa tub was nice. Convenience to Yosemite was great. About 20-30 min to the valley.

Needs a good cleaning
The stove and kitchen area was inundated by ants. There were weeds on the entire patio area and it was full of large beetles and bugs. There was dirty food and crumbs all over the kitchen chairs. The carpet had disgusting stains by the beds. We paid for 4 guests but were not left enough towels on any of the nights we stayed. The front desk person was rude and unwelcoming. I have stayed at this hotel many time over the past 13 years, but I will not go back again. The price was double what it should have been.
The close proximity of Yosemite valley. Nice gas fireplace.
The room lacks natural lighting and was far too dark even with all the lights turned on. Paid wifi?......really??=(
The location was close to the national park
Price, staff attitude, no outside trash cans in parking lot, door chain lock was not really attached and fell out.
Location relevant to park, setting, kitchenette
Paid for Wifi. I think it should be free.
Loved our room. It was clean, had a fireplace, large jet tub, kitchen, all overlooking the Merced River. Beautiful.
Slightly smelly fridge.
Kitchen allowed us to make packed lunches for hikes, hot spa was great at end of day, staff v friendly and upgraded us for free when hotel empty. Beautiful views.
My fault; I didn't ask for an upgrade by the river. Next time.
Very well located, very clean. Reasonable for where it is ( so near the Park). The laughing faces weren't all indicated because I comparied you to the Wowana.
For the price the rooms need an upgrade. Funny smell in the room. Pool and spa outside were very cold.
Loved the view, the food and the staff.
Early in season. On-site restaurant had some kinks to work out.
We were upgraded to a family suite upon arrival. Separate sitting area with a pull out sofa. Nice to get away from the kids!
