Very Good8.0
A free continental breakfast would have been nice, considering the room prices. I get up and out early to hike and don't eat in restaurants alone, and although the kitchenette was big I don't cook when traveling. So I ate trail mix and fruit for 3 days. Nice balcony, quiet stay. Nice bear lamp.

Excellent river view and close to Yosemite Valley
We reserved a River view room and enjoyed the water sound and excellent view during the stay. It took 15- 20 mins to Yosemite Valley. They have multiple swimming pools and jacuzzis. But the cell signal was weak in the room and wifi is not free.

overall a great place to stay
overall a wonderful stay, very quite and relaxing environment, the hotels locates near the entrance of Yosemite national park, and is sitting by the river. Several buildings named after trees like Maple, Juniper,Redwood are scattered around. The hotels also has several outdoor and indoor pools; the room even has refrigerator and cook top. Only downsides are no free breakfast, no free wifi.
