"Bad Experience at Hotel Eldorado"
If anyone is planning on giving a gift and booking on you credit card, don't do it, as I gave my grandson a birthday gift to spend two (2) days in Pinecrest at this hotel, he wanted to spend time in the mountains. They would not accept my information that I had booked thru Hotel.com. Lucky for him he had cash on him and he had to pay for two nights, if he paid for only one night, he would not had a room. I called the hotel and told them any information they wanted I could give that it was not a bogus card. Nope wanted cash.

"Nice little motel in the wood"
Well, it's a nice little motel in the wood. It is next to the road so it can be a little noisy from the passing cars. Good thing it's a small road so noise is still manageable I think. However, for some light sleepers it can be hard to get a good rest because some cars/truck did drive pretty fast in the evening making a little noisy. The check-in office is quite small, so one may have to wait outside while another guest is inside. Ice maker is also located in this office. I don't know how do guest get ice if the office closes at 10pm, we got ours before 10pm. We booked our room through Expedia. The confusing part was there was one section/package that included car parking spot, and another section/package that excluded parking. We got the package that excluded parking since others were sold out with parking. This was a bit concerning for us in the beginning wondering where would we park our car. It all turned out OK, we just parked in front of our room or where ever available in the lot as told by the front desk lady.

"Bad odor, stains, poor quality bed"
There was a terrible odor in the room and the bathroom... A combination of mildew and a sweet chemical odor. I kept the outer door open for a half hour, and despite the fact that my room with a twin bed measured only about eight foot by eight foot, the odor would not go away. Some parts of the room appeared to have never been cleaned (fridge shelf and blinds). All the shelves in the room were made with 2 X 4s and plywood screwed into the walls, done really sloppily. I would not sit in the chair. It appeared to have 20 years worth of stains on it. There was not an inch without stains. The bed was not hotel quality, but a combination of springs and vaguely hammocky.... Cheapest quality that can be purchased. Bedcover had stains and cigarette holes. Hotel owner was nice, sheets and pillows and towels were immaculately clean, which is the only thing that kept me there. Bathroom was very clean, though it had a mildew smell.

"Dirty, otherwise just ok"
I was planning a very late arrival at this hotel. Knowing this I called the hotel weeks in advance to check if this was a problem. The person on the phone gave a big sigh and said it would be fine but it didn't make me feel particularly welcome. When I did arrive at the hotel the man who checked me in didn't really speak English. He was able to communicate very strongly however, that the room was non smoking. When I did get to my room at 2am, however, it REEKED of smoke, badly - and continued to do so during my 4 night stay, despite leaving a fan on all day with an open window. Additionally, the walls were FILTHY. I had a bottle of cleaner left in my room which I sprayed on the wall where I saw a bunch of brown splotches and after I had rubbed a bit with a washcloth... well what do you know it came right off. They need to seriously take some elbow grease to this room. Also, the chair included in the room was COVERED in dirty stains. How hard is it to get some stain remover, or get another $10 chair from a thrift store? Honestly I don't have high expectations but this was just ridiculous. I was nervous I would be charged their ridiculous smoking fee the room smelled so bad - and told the hotel lady so - she said as long as I didn't smoke it'd be fine, but it smelled so strongly I don't even know if she could have noticed the difference. From Yosemite Valley itself (the little city inside the park) to the hotel is roughly a 105-120 min drive.

"It was my second choice in 2 years."
The Wildwood had uncomfortable furniture, so I booked The Eldorado to see. It filled my needs , but the cleanliness in the shower and walls in the bathroom needed a deep cleaning. The Hot Tub smelled like it had not been treated recently and was in need of repair. The visit was a 2. But, it was close to where I was vacationing while my family camped for the week in the Sierras.

The only complaint I had was that the appliances were a bit dated. The owners were incredibly friendly and accommodating. My sister and I were more than impressed by the motel. Also, it was a quick ten minute walk to downtown Twain Harte. We fell in love with motel and the town and have every intention of revisiting the area and staying in the same motel.

"Not a good location if visiting Yosemite."
Although this motel was fine, it was very far from the nearest entrance to Yosemite National Park. (1hr 15 mins). There are several other towns that are closer and have more things to do. This town is really out in the middle of nowhere with few amenities. I found the staff friendly and helpful, the facilities were pretty clean - but if you are a single traveller, be aware that one room, I think it is 12a, is extremely small.

"Good hotel but far from Yosemite"
The room was comfortable for the price and the staff very helping and nice, but the motel absolutely isn't "25 miles to Yosemite Big Oak Flat Entrance" as it says on the description, it's 55 miles away (Google maps), and it's all windy roads limited to 25 to 35 mph, so it takes a good 2 hours to get to the park. This kinda ruined the trip for us, as we expected to be 30 minutes away from Yosemite.

Terrible since I got the small room. It was the smallest motel room I ever gotten since I started vacationing in the 1970s. My bathroom at home is bigger than the room I got. The smoke alarm was broken and the plumbing pipes made gurgling noise when the sink or shower was used.

Carpet was dirty and under the bed it has been awhile since cleaned.The room was the smallest one I've ever stayed in (thus they only allow one person in the tiny twin bed) I could touch ethe front door and bath door at the same time. There were missing light bulbs in two of the fixed ceiling lamps. The tiny refrigerator froze my nightcralwers which I brought in so they woul dnot freeze in the car. (Fishing trip)

"Service was horrible"
I had actually booked this hotel 3 months ago and they asked for my credit card to put on file. The person that I spoke to at the time said they only needed it to make the reservation and I was assured they would NOT charge my debit card and that I have the option to at cash upon arrival. After I checked in, the owner who barely spoke english told me my credit card was declined and made a fit about my wanting to pay cash. Ummmmmm who the heck authorized my credit card to be swiped? It had been declined cause I had changed to a new card as the old one was tarnished. I was then told that my reservation was cancelled back then because they couldn't get the money first. She then had me upgrade to another room that cost more. That was uncalled for.

Very nice owners of this small hotel. They are renovating rooms and the one I was given had been painted recently. This made it hard for me to breathe due to chemical sensitivity. The manager very kindly upgraded me to a larger room. Then she called me on the room phone to make sure i was comfortable. Everything was clean and the location is quiet - in a quaint little mountain town on highway 108.

"Small, inexpensive, lovely staff"
I've been going to El Dorado for a few years now. I don't spent too much time in the room when I'm up in the Sierras. I like this motel as it's small, one level and I had a spinal fusion. The owners are the sweetest people and are always very nice to me. There is a pool and a hot tub. This is the least expensive hotel I think you can find and it's quiet, perfectly suitable. I'd rather spend my money on dinner or other things. I've stayed at some of the bigger motels in Twaine Harte and gotten nothing more from it and not that personal feeling and feeling of safety I get at the El Dorado.

"El Dorado Motel and the small town of Twain Harte"
After four days in the wilderness of Yosemite area my girlfriend and I went to the small town of Twain Harte and the appropriately small motel - El Dorado Motel. Anything would have fit our needs coming off the trail. Smelly, grungy and starving we loved our stay in this fun small town, it was nice to be tucked away in the corner of the Valley near the mountains. The town itself has everything you'll need, ice cream, Chinese restaurant, Pizza, Food market and an amazing little breakfast cafe all on the small main street of Twain Harte, El Dorado is just a quarter mile down the road, a quick drive or sprawling walk to everything you need. The Motel was a small room and bathroom, but after staying in what was suppose to be a Hotel in San Francisco, El Dorado looked more like a Hilton in our eyes. The proprietor was quick and straight to business when checking in and very accommodating to making sure we had everything we need. They have a pool and spa, which unfortunately we didn't get to check out - overly exhausted and starving we never found the time. Overall an overlooked town, this motel fit the style of Twain Harte, though maybe a bit more expensive than we'd expect, it was worth giving to the small town's tourist economy.

"False advertising"
This motel advertises that it is 39 miles from Yosemite Valley. I booked the room for four days based on that claim. I was extremely upset when I find out they are 110 miles from Yosemite Valley. When confronted with this the owner immediately blurts "it is 39 miles as the crow flies" I based my whole trip on the assumption that this motel was a reasonable distance from the park.

"Hotel rated highly bc of relativity"
Compare this hotel to a similarly priced hotel in a suburban city like Roseville, and it's a dump. The only reason the prices are so high and the ratings high in return, is because there isn't much competition. Aka it's in the middle of no where. I don't think that's any reason to review it any differently. The room was fine enough. We just needed a bed to sleep in and a bathroom to get ready in (for a wedding). But the bathroom smelled terrible, like something got stuck in the pipes. The bedding could use some updates. And more pillows should be provided (though I'm sure we could have asked). This hotel still uses actual keys! Which is not necessarily a bad thing, but a reflection of how old it is.

Not a bad choice if one is looking for Bed, Bath (& not much Beyond). Room has all the basic amenities - Mini fridge, Microwave, TV etc.. Manager/Owner (Mr Jain) was courteous even when we checked in well past midnight. Even though this Motel is in a very scenic location, it must be noted that it is at least 1.5 hours from Yosemite National park. All in all, I don't have any complaints about this Hotel & I consider it as a decent Budget Motel.
