"Clean but...."
The Hotel was very clean, the AC never cooled the room, the water pressure in our shower was a trickle, hot water never made an appearance in the shower, the bed was comfortable, no hair dryer in room, fridge, microwave and coffee maker worked fine.

"Close to Yosemite"
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.

"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.

"Nice and simple motel"
A nice and simple motel in a lovely little town. The motel is located in the center and everything is walking distance. One hour to Yosemite. The room is small and simple but it's clean and pretty quite. The current in the shower was a little slow but nothing to worry about.

"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.

Nice check in experience. Room is older, but bed is comfortable and good place for an overnight. Talk about safe. I accidentally left the key in the door all night and wasn't bothered, but of course I wouldn't recommend doing this. Bathroom is pretty small, but functional. Coffee in room was decent and overall the place was pretty quite. no complaints.

"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. The pool is falling apart and dirty, the a/c didn't work, the gaps around the doors are ridiculous, there was hair and coffee grounds in our ice bucket, and the office has very limited hours. 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.

Overall, a very quality venue. My only issue would be the basketball court that's next door to a room (my room it so happens!!). The lodge just doesn't seem to be large enough to have the court and not be disruptive. The lodge should seriously consider removing it.

"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

"Nice location, but poor hotel"
The air conditioner didn't cool the room on a 100 degree day and because people are allowed to smoke outside of the rooms I couldn't open my window. The pool should be condemned. My daughter found a used toothbrush behind the nightstand and the overall cleanliness of the room was low. The office is only open for a few hours each day. On Sunday when I went to check out I wanted to bring my issues up with the staff but the office was locked at 9:30 a.m. so I didn't have the opportunity to speak with anyone. Beyond the room and pool issues the price I made my reservation on Expedia was one price, I put in my credit card info to confirm the room and I received a higher rate and I was then charge an even higher rate. It was only $15 but the point of it all was discouraging. Go to this place if you have zero expectations other than a great location to enjoy the town and have easy access at a cheep rate to the park.

"Not bad, Not very good!"
The room size average, bathroom slightly larger than a large motor home, none of the electronics plugged in, except the TV which was operationally marginal. The refrigerator was cool and items that need to be kept that way, weren't. I wasn't informed of the unplugged items, like lamps, etc. and sorta figured it out on an as needed basis, and unfortunately did discover the refrigerator until it was too late. Since I had to leave early in the AM before their office opened I was was unable to convey my disappoint at their quality and service.

Reception/owner hardly ever there, busy with her children, very casual. Charged me for room price via Expedia, plus $25, didn't seem to realize I had already paid through Expedia, including tax. Not sure now if I've paid twice! Will have to follow up, to make sure. Definitely overpriced.

"High priced Mom & Pop Motel"
The desk lady was more than friendly and extremely responsive and helpful. She took care of a couple of our needs (extra pillow, re-programming the remote). The room was ok, bed was fine, carpet could use a good cleaning, bathroom was so small that you had trouble turning around: but the main issue was that there was no phone in the room. Not only did I have to go up and down a steep hill a couple times to reach the front desk, but for seniors not having a room in case of an emergency is disconcerting. Net, Net it should have been priced at about $35.00.

"Pretty Nice, although not fancy"
This little privately-owned hotel was a bit quaint, and pretty nice. The front-desk staff was very helpful and nice. I would, however, say you should not stay here with your lady if you want to impress her. While nice enough, it is not fancy. The only way in which I thought it came up sort was in the bathroom. The shower stall was smaller than I am used to, although still quite usable, and I am a big guy. The big thing (mostly for a lady, I would think) is the sink does not have any counter space around it. There is a more-than-adequate shelf off to the side over the toilet, but nothing right next to the sink. For me? No problem. If my lady had been there... it would have been "ok," but it wouldn't have been appreciated. All in all, for convenience and location, combined with price, this place is a little gem.

The room was roomy and beds were comfortable. We had an oven but no pots or plates to cook with. The room was clean relatively except for some minor details. It was about an hour from Yosemite village so it was ok for the price. The neighbors in room 12 were noisy so it was hard to sleep the second night but that is not the loge's fault. Overall it was one of the cheapest places around so we saved some money and had a nice stay. If you not picky were you stay and want so save some money it is a good place to be at.

Excellent location but next time would spend the extra money to stay in a nicer place as the experience with depressing and the beds were uncomfortable so I didn't get much sleep.
