We enjoyed our stay. It was amazing to see the fire damage all around the facility, But, you have done a great job on making it a beautiful, unique place. My hope and prayers are that the trees and greenery come back, and keep this place safe. It was fun.

The hotel was very nice and clean. The room we had was larger than other hotels we have stayed in. It was great for the family of 6 people. The water was from a well and so it had a bit of a smell and we preferred not to drink it, but it did not appear to have any off color in the water. The staff of the hotel spoke with us like visiting family and were extremely friendly. We will definitely go back in the future.

Your are already driving for hours on this trip, so stay in Groveland or somewhere cheaper and drive to this neck of the woods. That is unless $179 is not a lot of money to you. The Inn itself is fine, standard roadside motel quality. The location is incredible if you don't mind paying and want to stay right in the woods. It's sort of like the choice of staying at a hotel on the beach or a hotel a few blocks away. One important note: All fire roads and campgrounds are closed in the area as of 4/26/2014 due to the big forest fire last year. The burn area is humongous and the Inn is right in the middle of it, although it should not keep you from visiting the area. It is an awesome sight.

We booked the room after having a terrible night at the red rooster lodge so anything in comparison looked like the hilton. The road to lodge is very confusing. There were signs that said keep out and road closed so it's a metal struggle to go down it as the saying goes "be with god". When we arrived we were greeted by the most unpersonable inkeeper. He was very black and white and seemed like a struggle for him to smile. On a lighter note the room was very cute and clean ie it was out "Hilton".

This is a very OLD place. You feel like you have gone back 50 years. If this inn was not about 1 hour away from Yosemite you would probably pay $35 to $40 a night. Rooms are bit up and breakfast is just some pastries (old). Stay in Yosemite and even if you pay a few dollars more it is worth it.

The location to Yosemite is outstanding. The grounds on the property are beautiful. The concierge is helpful about info in the area. We happened to stay in the new bldg. on the ground floor. The steps up and down were so noisy we couldn't sleep when the late neighbors came home the nite before and the early in the morning neighbors woke up. So we only got about 6 hours shut eye. Breakfast items would run out and not be replaced in a timely manner or not at all.

We paid $180 for 4 of us. I knew we were lucky to get any place to stay around Yosemite in Aug. within a week but it was just too expensive for what it was. The little room was clean but everything was so old and almost scary, none of us even wanted to use the shower. There is a restaurant 3 miles away, a grocery store and few more places to eat 15 miles away. The breakfast was typical continental breakfast and the lady working there was very nice and friendly. Good location to go visit Yosemite since it was close to the west entrance. But we will try to pich a tent next time to save money.

The grounds are beautiful and the staff are nice, but for over $150 a night I'd expect better accommodations. We had 3 parties there and all had rooms in a different building. The complaints ranged from water smelling of sulfur, lack of deadbolt, extremely creaky floors and stairs, shower heads at nipple level, and really poor linens. The rooms were outdated and I can do without the TV/microwave/fridge in every room, but the security of our door freaked me out and I really can't think of a reason for a shower head to be that low. If you are driving to Yosemite: BRING YOUR OWN BREAKFAST, TOWELS, and PILLOW and you will fare alright. The only true perk is it is THE last place to stay on 120 before you get to the park, but it's still a solid 15-30 min drive to any park destination.

This was such a charming little place, located about 10 miles from the west Yosemite entrance. Our room was clean and comfortable. There was a nice little stream behind the cabin containing our room. The owners had placed picnic tables and several chairs out there, and we ate a picnic dinner and drank wine beside the stream as the sun went down. It was perfect for us.

Some rooms appear to be in better conditions than others. Ours, unfortunately was very disappointing. The room was small, cramped and awkward. It was also unclean. Old towels left behind by previous guests and hair all over the bathroom walls. The worst part was the attitude of the owner. When we tried to express our concerns to the owner, she became very short and rude. She dismissed our concerns and was extremely unprofessional. Wish I would have believed the other negative reviews. This place is not worth the money.

This charming cozy cabinish environment was a delightful find for the price. Our small cabin was next to the river with plenty of seating in the perfect tranquil environment after a long day of hiking the trails in Yosemite. We never turned the TV on in the 5 days we were there choosing to relax outside next to the river. It is located 10 miles from the west entrance to Yosemite. It's a few miles to drive into town for a restaurant nut you' d expect that in this location. The owners were charming and pleasant. Breakfast was included and was a typical continental style. We were completely out of internet and cell phone range until we were up at the highest peaks in Yosemite. And hey, we didn't mind a bit. One morning while getting ready for a hike, we witnessed a real cattle drive complete with cowboys and herding dogs - about 40 head! It was VERY cool to see.

Room was dirty and small and old and smelly. You will find hair in a few spots, from bed to bathtub. Hotel was very hard to find on GPS and no civilization around to ask for directions. You have to drive 20 minutes to find even a small dive to eat at. No wonder once you make reservation you cannot cancel or reduce your stay. Once you reserve for x days you have to stay ALL x days or you will be charged. If you want to ruin your vacation then this is the place to stay at.

Situated in the woods and alongside a little river close enough to the main road to be convenient but far enough to be completely isolated from it in terms of lights or noise. Our DeLuxe rooms we spacious and had all modern conveniences. It isn't modern or hip, and the continental breakfast wasn't "haute cuisine" or "a la carte" but fresh and easygoing, and I slept like a King in my King bed with the window wide open to listen to the little river pass by. Despite my last minute booking through Expedia the Inn was fully aware that I was coming, had my reservations printed out on the table, rooms and keys ready to go, very friendly staff and no issues whatsoever. Great place to go when you want to be able to go in and out of Yosemite, without staying in Yosemite Valley. No cell phone reception or internet, which is great if you really want to relax and focus on your travel companions!

The riverside Inn was great. They allowed us to check in very late. The room was clean and warm. A great retreat for our week long visit to Yosemite. The Inn is located only 20 minutes from the front gate of Yosemite National Park, and the gate is another 30 minutes from the Yosemite Valley itself. No complaints at all. Checkout was a breeze.

We wanted to see Yosemite in a weekend and it was good to stay in this hotel after the first day and have a warm shower. However please keep in mind there are not much hotels or facilities around the Yosemite area (within one hour). So based on that this hotel is acceptable. However compared to hotels in Manteca or Oakdale, the quality is by far different. So adjust your expectations. Here, internet means a satellite internet with 200 MB cap for all the guests!! Which barely let's you check your email after 5 mins of waiting. Also apparently there is a mismatch between hotels.com and what the hotel says. It turned out that the sluggish super slow internet is not even free, and we had to pay $5. Also for the heating system, it's kind of weird, so maybe carry a portable space heater with you. We had a baby and the room was not warm enough as we expected. There were two heaters but we couldn't figure out how to turn them on. The staff later told us that one of them was not working and for the other one we had to open it and adjust the a thermostat inside. Well, I never dared to do that on my own without any directions! The positive side, the staff are warm and good. Also make sure you check in before 10pm as they will be closed afterwards. The area outside is calm and beautiful, we enjoyed seating on the benches facing the river and relaxing. Overall it was a good stay, and thanks to the staff for providing the service.

Having read many unhappy reviews about the Yosemite Riverside Inn, I was somewhat apprehensive but upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised to find a rustic and comfortable cabin in the woods type place. I upgraded to a deluxe river view room which had a balcony overlooking the river and woods. There was a cool rocking bench to sit on and enjoy the view. Our room itself was clean and the carpet seemed fairly new. There was a fridge and microwave as well. The sinks and shower were older but functional and fine. The bed was comfortable and all was pleasant. The towels could use an upgrade, on the thin side for sure. They don't serve breakfast until April 15 so no comment on that. The people were nice on check in and check out, even let us slide on a later checkout. The location could not get closer to Yosemite without being in the park (18 miles from Groveland) which was great as we came for the great outdoors not to hang out in a hotel. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a comfortable and convenient place to crash after a long day of outdoor adventure. Hope this review helps set your mind at ease about the Yosemite Riverside Inn!
