"Close to Yosemite"
Nice and orderly hotel room. Nice in room amenities. The overall appearance is very clean. We had 2 queen beds and one appeared to have some sand in it however so not sure if sheets on one of the beds were changed.

Decent rooms and close to the park. Bring food! There is a diner next door but the food was far from great! Prices are high but that's the only place around.

"Modern style in the wilderness"
Hotel has updated rooms and lots of space. Also located next to a restaurant which is difficult to find in Yosemite. Unfortunately there was no water for the first night, which the staff claimed was due to "draught".

"Cozy place to stay outside of Yosemite"
Nice and quiet place to stay about an hour from Yosemite valley. There's a nice little restaurant next door called Buck Meadows that served a good breakfast and had polite, friendly service. The hotel has a pool and jacuzzi that are refreshing to relax in after spending the day in Yosemite. About 5 minutes away is Rainbow Pools that has a waterfall and natural pool to swim in.

"Good place to stay, clean and mostly comfortable."
Our initial greeting from the front desk person was extremely rude. He was not helpful at all. Our pillows on the first night were awful, very hard and uncomfortable. However, they were changed out and we were much more comfortable the second night. The person who checked us out upon leaving was very very friendly and helpful giving us directions to our next destination.

"Convenient"
If you are looking to visit Yosemite park for a few days this is a nice choice. The diner right outside the hotel is quick a good. Then there is a fishing/ slash swimming hole right down the road, about 10 min. Called swimming pools. Small falls. And then the gas station is also not very far cause it's on the way to the park. So I liked this very much based on location. The room was very spacious. Had what we needed for our trip. The only missing thing that would have been nice to have would have been wifi . Internet. Just in case. We were trying to search online about maps and stuff for the park. So if you are visiting Yosemite make sure to come prepared with maps.

"Great alternative to Yosemite Lodge"
Great location if you're visiting Yosemite and not staying in Yosemite Valley! The hotel staff is VERY friendly. The rooms are updated and comfortable. Plenty of hot water and fluffy white towels. Microwave oven and mini fridge are great extras. The one thing missing: INTERNET ACCESS. This is an issue particularly because the cell phone service in the area is weak. (There are places in Yosemite that offer WiFi, so you can always take care of your internet needs in the Valley before you leave the park.)

"Close to Park and Comfortable"
The hotel location is a 45 mile drive from the Yosemite Valley that we accepted to perform every day of our stay because nothing else was available. Our room was adequate. Hot water and showers met our expectations. The beds were not very comfortable; wife and I had trouble sleeping through the night. The hotel staff was adequate; there was some slow trash pickup near some rooms. Showers were hot enough. Towels were sufficient throughout the stay. The restaurant on the adjacent property was OK; it serves dishes with lots of carbohydrates for every entree. Flavors were good for most entrees. If one wants to be transported by bus into Yosemite Valley or beyond, this location is on the route. A traveler could also bus to Sonora/Jamestown from here.

"Lots of location issues"
Rooms are newly updated, location was quiet, but a few caveats. 1--there is absolutely no Internet, Wi-Fi or otherwise, to be had, and we had to drive all the way back to Groveland (11 miles) before getting 1 iffy bar of AT&T cell service in only a few areas of town--next cell service is 40 miles the other way in Yosemite Valley. So if you do need to check e-mail, etc., several times a day this may not be the choice for you. 2--the restaurant next door is OK for breakfast, but there is nowhere else to eat that is not awful, especially in Groveland. 3--it takes a loooong time to get to Yosemite from here. And while we were there they were repaving the Tioga Pass road and so there was an endless procession of asphalt trucks moving 15 mph on the road. If you are thinking to bounce in and out of Yosemite multiple days it takes a significant toll on your time in the park.

"Yosemite Vacation"
The hotel was much more than I expected for such a remote location and so close to yosemite entrance. My only complaint/warning would be that there is absolutely no cell phone service or internet at this hotel. This of course is due to the fact that it is in such a remote location but we were just not really prepared to spend 3 days with no outside contact.

"OK But Very Basic"
There is no Ethernet nor WIFI at all, and there is no signal for T-Mobile or Verizon (not even voice). You need to pay for calling LA. Think through if you're not ready to be isolated from the internet. There is only one restaurant close by, and the closest town with supermarket and food is 15 minutes away. The room was clean when we arrived, but not that clean after the housekeeping.

"Great place to stay!"
We booked a room for a spur of the moment trip to Yosemite. We were already on our way when we booked the last room they had available. This lodge had good reviews but I didn't get to see any pictures since we were already in the car. I was worried we would be settling but I was wrong. As soon as we saw the lodge, we were excited. The place is beautiful. When we checked in, the man who was at the front desk was very courteous, helpful and funny. When we got to our room, I was expecting plain walls, floral print bedding and a tiny bathroom. I was wrong again. The inside our room was great. It was very modern looking and clean. We had a hair dryer, an iron, microwave, fridge, flat screen and a huge bathroom (4 people comfortably got ready at the same time the next day). Also being that the hotel was full, I was expecting it to be a little loud. Nope! It was quiet all night. The bed and pillows were very comfortable too. The next morning we discovered a little restaurant next door (walking distance) which was convenient. Outside the lodge is a pool and playground (we didn't get a chance to check those out). There is also vending machines and ice machines (which is a plus to chill your water before going hiking). When we were checking out, the same man helped us and he was again very courteous and made sure we had a good stay! The one and only con is that there is no cell service or wifi. We are already planning our next trip to Yosemite and this is where we will be staying a

"Quiet, clean, remodeled."
This is a no-nonsense but great hotel about 1 hour out of Yosemite Valley. The rooms are modern, looks like theyve had a remodel a couple years back. Very nice rooms for the price (I paid 160) It appears this hotel is family run by a young Indian family who was kind upon check in and check out. Very comfy beds. Our 2 queen room had a mini kitchenette with microwave, cofffee maker and fridge. There is a diner next door which is convenient. Even though its right on HWY 120 it was very quiet - except for in the morning I could hear one of the housekeepers having a loud phone chat outside my door. -__ This hotel doesnt have any frills such as a free breakfast, gym, or wi-fi but it makes up for it in the quality of the rooms and bed and quiet. I recommend it.

There is no cell phone signal in the 40 mile range. So it is easy to miss. There is no internet in the hotel as well. So if you need work and stock during your vacation, stay somewhere else. But it's very close to the gate, only 15 min driving. So very nice for coming back next day. The price is same for the tent in village, so if possible, select this one. The breakfast next door is wonderful except it's slow.

My only complaint is they have a late check in fee. This may not be unreasonable but I've never had to pay one at any place I've ever stayed. Driving up to Yosemite is a long drive so to get up there late and tired to find out you are penalized is just not a cheerful way to begin your stay.

"Decent Motel"
Hotel/Motel was ok for the money and the distance to the west entrance of Yosemite Park. Not a bargain by any means but not a total rip off either. Just so so. Disappointed that we were charged for 2 kids, 16 and 13 for both nights, an extra $10 per kid but oh well, not a lot of choices if you want to stay close to entrance and I think they know that. Hotel has massive cow webs hanging everywhere you look and I hated having to pull those off me anytime I walked anywhere on the property. Room it self decent, nice upgrade for a motel quality site and cleanliness was good also. If you don't have kids please ask to be put up in a room next to no families with small children, our first night was a night mare as the family next to us had 2-3 small kids with them in the room and they were up pretty late screaming, kicking and banging on walls....parents please learn to control your kids, in the morning they got up at 6 am doing the same thing waking us up in the process. Asked to get moved to another room and the front desk guy claimed they were booked lol, I'm sure they weren't as the parking lot pretty empty but whatever, I probably would not stay again, also fyi, there is absolutely no data, wifi or cell phone connection there in the whole area so be prepared.
