"Apathetic Management"
It was a simple low cost hotel with comfortable beds. There was an incident on Sunday 10/25/15 where the fire alarm went off early in the morning with extreme ear piercing noise that we could not stop as it seemed hooked up to the electrical instead of batteries. This went on for a good 15-20 min. It was horrible. We are to be out by 10:00am and keys turned in to the office by way of the mail slot on the door. I left a note with my key regarding the incident and called the two numbers listed on the front door. There was no answer on either but I could leave a message on one of them which I did. So far there has been no rush by management to compensate us in any form for our discomfort so early in the morning.

"A cozy hotel and a happy Yosemite visitor"
The staff is friendly; room is quite clean, the bathroom is a little bit small, but just need one night stay during my trip to yosemite, won't complain. Good for the price. Location is quite convenient, in Mariposa downtown, restaurants / grocery / gas stations nearby.

"Nice hotel for the price"
We stayed here for two nights while visiting Yosemite. The lady at the front desk was very nice and helpful. The room was small and modest but met all of our needs. The hotel didn't provide breakfast but there were several restaurants closeby for breakfast, lunch, and supper. The only problem we encountered was the cleaning lady didn't realize we were staying two nights and since we left our toiletry items in the bathroom she threw them away. They managed to find some of them but not all. We would stay here again if ever in the area. Great value.

"Much bigger than expected, nicely appointed!"
We were very pleasantly surprised at the spaciousness of the unit we rented. The main area had a queen bed, and there was a second room with another queen bed plus a twin. The unit also had a kitchenette, with sink/faucet, electric stove, microwave and small fridge. We were very, very pleased.

We stayed one night to be close to Cathedral Overlook from our wonderful base at Wyndham Angels Camp. Staff most unfriendly and disinterested when we arrived 4:30pm...told me to move my car while we were trying to unload. Good price, old tight quarters, great comfortable beds, new A/C, packed out early AM... fantastic breakfast at Silver Pine cafe across street.

"Tidy but tiny"
The room was clean but very small. The bathroom was even smaller, you could sit and brush at same time, the shower was too small for a large person. The door had a very old lock and key and did not close well, no deadbolt or safety latch, large crack all around door. The ac worked but the filter and unit itself was filthy. Only two electrical outlets in the whole room and they were full with two lights, tv, small fridge. It also had a microwave and coffee maker but something else had to be unpluged to use them. This room was ok for one night but should have cost much less than what we paid. The queen bed was comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly.

"Hotel in good location of mid-town Mariposa"
This hotel is older and a little funky, but we truly enjoyed our stay there. The one story rooms are connected in one row with doors opening to the outside. Parking is opposite the room. Small frig and microwave are included in the rooms along with a flat screen TV. Queen bed was adequate. Bathroom was clean and has upgraded sink and toilet. Eating places are within walking distance, as well as shops and a nice park at the end of the block. The YARTS bus stops right across the street for an enjoyable trip to Yosemite Valley for the day, and returns right by the hotel property.

"Okay to stay with some drawbacks"
this hotel is sort of okay to stay with the price. Some good things - amenities are good, rooms are spacious, easy parking, family-owned so less rush, small property with 10-12 rooms, so less crowded. Some drawbacks - no staff on-property after 9pm and staff tend to mess up keys frequently.

"A nice little stay."
Great place to stay to go to yosemite. Although Yosemite was an hour away the scenic drive there was so nice you realize you're there in no time. My only issue with the lodge was there was no do not disturb sign you could place on your door. We came back to find our bed made, which was nice, but there was no notice they would do so. There was a microwave and a fridge and all was pretty much fine.

"Yukky key"
There was no light when I went to put the key in the lock, I felt a sticky substance on the key. I went in, still in the dark, and wiped the key. When I turned on the light to see - I was totally yuked out (and that's the only word to describe my reaction). The cloth had a dark red/brown color which looked like blood (and I've seen a lot of blood dried and otherwise). The manager was not in the office when I took the key & cloth, so I put it in the car and went to buy some food. When I got back I showed it to the manager who said she thought it was ketshup or some other food stuff. She did offer to give me another key. The room was very, very cold. I tried to turn the knob on the heater which came off. Walked back up the hill to the managers office again. She came to my room with a wrench and turned the knob. She said the cold air was pulled in from the top and the hot air would blow out the bottom. However I was still very cold with a light breeze blowing on me all night. Discovered the next morning when I opened the drapes that the window had been open all night. I also found the same red/brown stains on the curtain. The room itself was very outdated and in need of repairs and fixes. I was not very happy with my stay at Mother Lode Lodge.

"Wonderful Christmas in a small homey motel"
We spent Christmas week at the Mother Lode and it was very nice, homey, old-fashioned and relaxing. Three days we skied at Badger Pass (in Yosemite, not so far away) and two days we just walked around Mariposa. The public library offered us useful maps of town as well as an opportunity to print online documents we needed (as well as an awesome Friends of the Library Used Book sale, every Tuesday and Friday morning). We'll be returning for the annual American Story-Telling Festival in March (sponsored by the Mariposa Arts Council), and we'll certainly stay in the Mother Lode Motel again.

"A place to rest your head"
If it's a place to rest your head then this place you should consider. If your looking for more than a one night stay take into consideration that the bed is hard the bathroom ... is tiny. You may need to leave the bathroom door open as you are at the sink. Only a shower...that's ok for overnighter. Curtains are sheer in bathroom but the bathroom is not exposed to ground level. The window facing the parking lot has curtains that may leave a gap when they are closed. I was extremely surprised at how quite the noise control between rooms was...truly it was quite. Like I said it good for staying overnight.

"Not worth the high price"
First, our room key was given to another person so we were walked in on by another guest. Turns our we were in HIS room so we had to move rooms. We were then moved to a much smaller room with peeling linoleum in the bathroom. There was only soap and a small packet of shampoo and the pillows were incredibly small and hard. The surrounding area was also very expensive for the quality of service/food. If you want to visit the Yosemite area, spring for a more expensive place or go camping.

Overpriced for what you get.

If you just need a bed close to Yosemite it works. But if you're looking for comfort, service or amenities, this isn't the place for you.

"Look elsewhere..."
The room had a second door opening onto the Main Street but from inside it was blocked by a clothes rack. When I was outside I pushed on the door and it opened! No key needed. The front desk staff fixed it with a screw driver to the strike plate but needless to say I wasn't comfortable with the safety of the place. The bathroom window was open but no screen was in place. The shower's hot water would eventually show up. Let's just say after a 12 hour hike and hour drive I still chose to drive 3 more hours rather than spend another night here
