"Before the Sonora pass"
Great little place to stay for a night or two before crossing the Rockies. Clean, good value and nice little town just down the road for a bit to eat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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.

Response by El Dorado Motel I am so very sorry you did not have a good experience at our motel. However, I would like to mention that we haven’t mentioned the distance of Yosemite Park on our official web site. We always advice our guests to check the distance and travel condition for any destination before making any travel plans. We sincerely apologies for inconvenience caused.

"Decent "Budget Motel""
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Better slep in your car"
My car is clean and my wife and I would have liked to sleep in our car if it was not for our baby. Such a shame the management does not care for the pitiful condition that this hotel is in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Handy to "downtown" Twain Harte""
Accommodations were modest, but comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"older but comfortable"
Not all shiny and new, not a classic beauty. An older hotel in good condition at a fair price. It was cold when we were there and the heater worked good.. Microwave, mini fridge, coffee pot, hair dryer in room. would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good price,small room"
The twin bed room was small. I barely was able to move in it. The staff was fine. The online price was really the only reason I stayed. I had been staying at a diiferent intown hotel for the past month but only used this as the price of the other location increased to more than I was willing to pay. I wolud guess the larger rooms are probably more comfortable. […] The location was good for my stay as I was working in the area again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very friendly staff, very remote location"
This was a lovely place to stay during our trip to Yosemite, but it suffered from being a little TOO far out of the way to make a good staging area. On the plus side, the drive out along 108 was beautiful, the room was spacious and had a full kitchenette (with an oven!), and the pool and hot tub were lovely. If you need to head this way, it's definitely […] a good place to spend the night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Go Else Where!"
I was sucked in by other reviews.... Should have looked around moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This isn't the nicest place around but it offers fair prices and a comfortable stay. All my immediate needs were met and the husband and wife running it were very nice and helpful. The only downfall was I felt as if the shower wasn't as clean as it should be and the only coffee filter they provided was dirty. Other than these two details the room and […] surrounding area was simple, clean, and overall well kept. I'd come back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quaint, small, private, quiet motel"
If you want an upscale, modern hotel, this is not the place for you. We found the location for our purposes to be satisfactory. It was a very quiet location set in the woods outside the quaint village of Twain Harte. There were several restaurants close by but not within easy walking distance. You could walk but it would be a hike. There is a pool and […] spa but, as they are located outdoors, it was not an appropriate time of year to use them. The room was very clean and had obviously been recently renovated with fresh paint. The bathrooms were outfitted with newer facilities--toilet, vanity and shower. Our only negative were the beds. The linens, pillows and coverings were clean and fresh and appeared to be quite new. However, the mattresses were not of the best quality and were not very comfortable. If we were to travel in the area again, we would probably stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The service was bad and the bathroom dirty. It is too far away from the national park.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The El Dorado Inn"
This is a great place to stay when it gets late & you don't feel like driving home. Close to Pinecrest and Black Oak CasinoGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"El Dorado Motel"
The motel is older and definitely not high end. However, the bedding, towels and room were very clean. The bed was comfortable. There is free WiFi in the room. The air conditioner was the most annoying thing -- too noisy to keep on at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice rooms, friendly staff"
I was slightly worried by the other reviews for this place, but booked it for two nights anyway. I was positively surprised. Not only was the staff very friendly and willing to help, I also found the room to be quite nice and clean. It had nice furniture, and in addition to a small table with a chair, my room had a comfortable armchair in it. There […] also was a fridge, microwave oven and a coffee maker in the room. The main drawback was the bathroom, which just appeared old and rundown. It seemed to be clean, but there were non-removable stains on the floor and the appliances. About the location: Twain Harte is a beautiful small town located in the forest. You can reach a number of restaurants and a seven up store within like five minutes of walking distance from the motel. I stayed in Twain Harte to go hiking in Yosemite, and it worked quite well. It is a two hour drive however if you want to get to the center of Yosemite. It wasn't a problem for me and there are many other great outdoor places closer to Twain Harte, but keep that in mind if you are planning to visit Yosemite from here. I can clearly recommend this place, even for longer stays. Only if a modern bathroom is important for you, you should look for something else (until the new management manages to renovate those).

"支配人に感謝 Thaks for the Master"
When I used this motel, I had really bad snow storm. I could get there 3 in the morning. It was also so cold but they warmed up for me from 7 pm. I was totally feel confortable and safe at that time.Genuine Expedia guest review

Where do I start? Comparing the place with a dump is an understatement. I booked it through hotels.com and I was supposed to have a suite with a kitchenette. The clerk did not honor my reservation. The room smelled like green onions. The towels were white but every thing else (linens, etc) were gray color and the comforter had severe stain marks on it. The bathroom was disgusting. We had bed tics and our bodies were itching. We put our clothes back on to sleep. Everything else in the room is outdated and run down. We could not find another property at that time of the night but escaped as soon as the sun came out. This place is expensive and it offers a disgusting product to clients. I would not allow my dog to stay there. It is a shame that the owners do not do anything to improve the conditions of this hotel.
"Old but clean"
07/06/13 Debra C Grover Beach, California
This reminds me of the motels I stayed in in the 60's as a kid. Rooms are worn, dingy and small, but the bed was newer and very clean. No bugs!! The walls are thick, couldn't hear the family next door, and they had a child. It could use a good cleaning and replace the carpet, but not bad. There is a smell from decades of people smoking in the room, but replacing the carpet would remove most of that smell. Not for those demanding a new hotel, this is an old fashioned MOTEL!!
06/27/13 F P Salinas, California
We had the "presidential suite" and it was a nightmare. The place is old and smelly, Their carpet is old. The tv screen was green and impossible to watch. There was mold. This place needs a lot of help. Maybe a remodeling would help. We were very disappointed. We should have stayed at the campground for that price. Warning- STAY AWAY!
06/24/13 Manoj S Sunnyvale, California
We were not getting any hotel for the long weekend in Yosemite. We got El Dorado for a very good rate. We were 2 families & we got 2 separate rooms which were so neat & clean. The room had every comfort & was quite comfortable with 2 queen beds. An excellent beautiful location with a golf course across the road. We enjoyed our stay there so much. The property is owned by a beautiful couple who were also very friendly. We definitely would love to stay again in such a beautiful area.
"Nice, vintage motel."
05/28/13 rainyoroville Oroville
The motel is old, but is kept clean and tidy. The rooms are quiet. The owners were nice and helpful. The motel is located in the sleepy little town of Twain Hart, close to the golf course and good restaurants.
"For a motel, it was an excellent place, very clean, helpful, friendly and perfect location as a stop to Yosemite or way back"
The owners are an Indian family, very sweet, helpful and friendly. They would call you after you check in to ensure you are fine.. And suggest nice breakfast places around. The rooms were very clean for a motel. Prices are Ok considering its California and peak tourist season. Much better than other motels around.
"A friendly, caring, helpful place, with wonderful amenities"
05/05/13 kathTurlock Turlock
The owners were very helpful and accommodating. The facility was quiet and restful. The pool and the spa were an added factor that made the stay so pleasant; The price was very good for two people and a small dog. It is a nice walk to travel on a serene pathway into the main part of Twain Heart. I am a 66 year old women, and because of balance am required to use a walker. The town was even within reach under those conditions. The bus stop for the county is just down the street on the opposite side of the road. At night or early morning you can look out of the window and see the beautiful trees, and if you open your door, you will hear the chirping birds. I would like to come back and take advantage of there suite, that can accommodate 4 people, with the use of kitchen facilities. The price is right. One last factor, I did not have a car, so was on foot most of the time. I give a big thank you to the owners and the help.

The mattress pads were filthy with hair and cigarette burns obviously not washed between guests,, there was no guide in the room to figure out the tv or the WiFi access, the dead bolt did not lock it was 10 pm and the owner said she would get her husband but it would have to wait until after he did his nightime prayers. Seriously....that's customer service???? She could not understand why we were frustrated. The heat did not work but the air worked really well like freezing. In the summer the pool closed by 9:30..special time for me because I questioned. Wouldn't you think in the summer it would be open like most motels to accomodate their guests . The rug was shredded by the bathroom door and the final straw was she made it sound like she was renting us the room....doing us a favor as it was her last room available... NOT.... the parking lot was no way full at 12 midnight. The business folks in town all lifted their eyes when we said where we were staying and warned us not to stay at the WildWood (old name) across from pee wee golf because their son ran it and it is just as bad.
"Nice quiet place"
04/23/12 Whale271 San Francisco
The heating problem has been resolved -- I had three heaters in my room. The room itself was clean, and the place was very nice and quiet, we had a good sleep. The only problem is the strong smell of "air fresheners" is actually typical for 1-2-star hotels/motels, but if the managers can address that, this would improve the quality of stay. The managers were very nice and friendly, so I recommend this place for families.
"decent for the price"

For five people and a dog I thought the price was great. Room comes with mini fridge, microwave and a coffe pot.
