Rooms and availability

Check in desk closes at 10 pm. Very expensive compared to similar standards offered. Takes advantage of location close to Yosemite. Restaurant closes at 10pm, so if you watch sunset at the park. Forget about dinner. Staff looks like there were forced to slavery, unhappy and unfriendly. All this for $179.00 + tax
It's convenient location to yosemite park entrance gate.
It is one of the closest hotels to Yosemite Valley. It was available when the much more expensive hotels inside the park were not. The room was large with two queen beds, very clean and neat, and the restaurant next door was good. I would definitely stay there again.
At times the front desk staff weren't very knowledgeable of the area and couldn't give directions. The restaurant next door is one of the very few good options. The next restaurant is 11 miles away.
Convenience to Yosemite Nat'l park.
Food could have been better
It was the only one available near Yosemite
Quite expensive for a "normal" motel.
Pleasant room with good queen beds
Coffe and tea tasted really poor in styrofoam cups.
Close to Yosemity. Clean, comfortable. Good swimming pool. Good bathroom, with small night light. Roadside restaurant next door is ok. Internet worked really well.
Towels were treated with fabric conditioner.
The proximity of the park, the comfort and the restaurant near
Staff were friendly, welcoming & helpful with suggestions & directions to local town & Yosemite. Basic simple room & continental breakfast as described when booking. Location only approximately 10 miles from West Entrance to Yosemite. Restaurant next door for great, friendly service for dinner, breakfast or a drink.
The room was ok and checkin was fast.
Sigange for the hotel was not great - would of passed it if I wasnt really looking hard. Check out was a bit lagged with one person more concerned about answering the phone than attending the desk.
Everything was clean and attractive. Our unit had been renovated in a very neat unpretentious and pleasant style. The restaurant on the grounds was convenient, clean, and OK. It was not haute cuisine, however, and was not inexpensive.
Pretty pricey, but perhaps not so given its location; and what I would presume have to be a lot of seasonal "down" periods.
Newly renovated clean room good shower, microwave an. Frig included without asking
Would be nice to have late check in capability. We called and had to request a late check in and we were told we had to be there by 10:30pm latest. It takes a long time to get to the hotel from Yosemite village
The room was great: comfortable bed, clean bathroom, appliances inside the room (microwave, coffee machine and fridge). The location is very convenient if you are there to visit Yosemite (20 / 25 min to the 120 freeway park entrance). The front desk responsible was not very friendly though.
Clean, spacious rooms. Good housekeeping. Proximity to Yosemite Park - closest lodge to the west gate entrance.
The Lodge has been updated so the room was pretty as well as clean. Nice to have the frig, microwave and coffee pot. The good restaurant next door was definitely a plus.
