Near Yosemite!
The room we were in was nice and big with 2 beds and a pull out couch, but when we pulled out the hide-a-bed, the sheets from the last person were still on it with human hair. The whole room could have used a good cleaning, but it was a really nice room setup. Also, we prepaid the room through Hotels.com, but when checking my statement realized we were also charged by the hotel. This was the second time on our trip this has happened! When I called the hotel, they were very nice and took care of it right away, but it was a hassle. I would stay here again, especially being so close to Yosemite.

Close to Yosemite, and much cleaner and more updated than I had expected based on the pictures shared here. The staff could definitely improve on helpfulness, friendliness and handling crowds. Check in was a long line, wi-fi was a "not our company, not our problem" situation. They do have a shop/general store on property and a diner. We did not eat on property but these amenities would be valuable based on the proximity of other amenities in the park. Overall, the cleanliness and room were much better than expected and the staff interactions weren't enough to detract from our stay. We were happy to have somewhere close to Yosemite after a long day of driving and exploring the park.

Great location! Only about 20 minutes to the valley floor, but that's where it ends. As many people have said in the reviews, the wifi for $9.99/day is a rip off, but you're stuck and have no other choice, and the hotel owners know it. The channel selection on the television is horrible, just bare bones minimum. Also, get a 2nd floor room if you can, we had a first floor room, and could hear the people above us walking around at all hours of the night.

Poor room amenities
We tried to check in at noon before getting into Yosemite National park, but was told that no room was available yet, which was apparently no true. We ended up checking in at 9 pm after returning from the park. Room was quite roomy with good location not too far from the park. But amenities is minimum, bath room condition is poor and with min. TV channels...no CNN! No ice from the ice maker! Even no parking space! Given the steep price ($200) the hotel was over priced even though it is close to Yosemite park
