Location at the entrance to the park......
Cost; age of the facility...
Excellent location with a river view right outside our room. We saw the sky full of stars at night. The room was fully equipped with microwave oven, coffee maker and a stove. We enjoyed our dinner by heating up the stuffs we bought from their mart.
They only gave me only one key for two person. The air condition doesn't work. Remote control on the T.V. didn't work.
It's convenient for the park
The buildings are ugly and look dated. Our room only had a view of the road, and no natural light. The air-con and the fridge were very noisy. The staff were brusque. The restaurants limited.The TV remote didn't work.
- Relatively short drive to the valley compared to other hotels - On-site restaurant and store that's open late - River view rooms with balconies are great if you can get them
- Expensive for the quality of room provided. You're paying a premium for the close proximity to the park - Pillows suck - Bathroom needs updating - "mountain view" room was looking past exterior walkway across a parking lot (no privacy with windows open)
Very close to Yosemite, booked late so nothing in the park was available but this was very good in terms of location, about 2 miles from the entrance on highway 140. Clean but basic rooms. Microwave, sink, dishes, fridge all available. Bathroom spacious and clean. Good night's sleep. Restaurants on sight. Indoor and outdoor pools
No kettle. Minimal toiletries. Toilet had some problems flushing.
Big, comfortable rooms. The swimming pools were an unexpected surprise, and much used by us in the evenings. LOVED the balcony over the river, however didn't realise it would cost more than original quote.
Due to the fires and road closure to park on arrival we were upgraded which worked to our advantage especially as they opened the road at 10am next morning.
Comfortable, spacious room. Excellent views from balcony (overlooking the river). A couple of good options for dinner - restaurant and pizza place. Only 20-30 minutes drive from Yosemite Village.
No free wifi
Maintenance and cleanliness
The location and the size of the room and bath.
The upholstery on the furniture needed cleaning as well as the rug but then we were there at the end of a busy season. The restaurant staff for breakfast could be a bit friendlier.
position, big bed, very big room and bathroom, very nice
- very near Yosemite - shop/grocery store/gift shop on site - 2 restaurants (pizzeria & very nice other restaurant) & bar
- carpet was stained in many places and very dirty
Location, good pizza restaurant, very good value Californian champagne (!), quick checkin and out.
Poorly provisioned kitchen area (no glasses!), road can be noisy early in the morning (workers driving into the park, perhaps), average restaurant.
Room was spacious Swimming pools very nice Perfect location for Yosemite Two nIce restaurants
Tired decor and tatty kitchen although useable Dirty sheets! Had to call housekeeping and then change them ourselves!
The closest hotel to Yosemite entrance. 24h convenience store next to the reception Lots of parking space
Noise from the highway. The price of printing one page boarding pass - USD 5.0 Every window is on the external corridor = people looking inside your room while walking
This accommodation was the best location for Yosemite being just outside the national park. We had a lovely view of the river and mountains from our balcony. Spa bath was roomy and the best of the 3 we have had on our trip so far. Bed was comfortable.
Pillows were lumpy and small. Kitchen had 6 knives, one fork and no spoons. Asked cleaner for more forks and some spoons but he didn't understand English. Rooms dated and a bit shabby but that didn't matter for us as the location and nice big spa bath made up for that.
Close to YNP entrance. Has a small store and a restaurant. Ample parking. Rooms are clean but basic.
A bit on the expensive side for what you get but good value compared to what you'd pay for a night in the park. Front desk could use some training on how to smile and greet guests.
See above. Location.
We enjoyed our stay. Delicious food in the restaurant but we had to wait a long time for a seat!
Good location, just 2 miles from the western (main) Yosemite National Park entrance. Sorry, nothing else to recommend it. Oh, we did see more wildlife in the hotel grounds (chipmunks, raccoons, deer) than in the park itself.
An example of the hotel industry at its worst, where the owners appear to be taking everything out and putting nothing back in. Although the hotel appears reasonable from the outside, one quickly realizes once inside, that it is well past its sell-by date. Our room, whilst large and airy, was in desperate need of re-decorating with dirty finger marks on most surfaces. The once white towels and bed linen were grey and threadbare, the bed was badly sprung and uncomfortable. The 'kitchenette' was dated and ill equipped (one chipped cereal bowl for four people, incomplete cutlery, an ancient non-stick frying pan with no non-stick surface left, a fridge that rattled all night and was in serious need of defrosting and an air conditioning unit that was impossible to fathom and more noisy than the fridge, and so on and so on). Our room you described as 'offering a private bath, a kitchenette and a balcony' the 'balcony' turned out to be the communal landing leading to all the rooms on this floor. Staff moral seemed to be very low, with little help and very few smiles on offer, perhaps through constantly fending off customer complaints. The hotel price is expensive and does not include breakfast, everything seems to revolve around making money, from $10 a day for WiFi to $5 just to check in on line and print off a boarding pass. The whole hotel ethos just smacks of greed.
The location - only took 20 minutes to drive and park in Yosemite. The balcony views overlooking the river and stunning views of the mountains. The kitchen area - very useful. The pool very relaxing after a day in the Park. My advice would be to stock up with groceries in Merced cheaper than buying on site.
The pillows were a bit flat, but that's the only negative aspect. We had a problem with the bathroom and it was fixed immeadiately. - great service.
The room was dirty. The staff was very unpleasant specially in the restaurants and the price is to high for the quality of this hotel.
Noisy air conditioning, expensive for what we got
