Best value for comfort and convenience at Yosemit.
Great location super close to West Gate of Yosemite park. Next to Mercer river. Great pizza restaurant and more formal restaurant. Nice market next to check in desk. Jacuzzi was a bit run down. Fan in room was wobbly, but maintenance was quick to fix. Nice staff. Good value.

Great location for visiting Yosemite
Great location for access to Yosemite however you pay ($$$$) for the location. This would only be a three star hotel if it were in most other places

Wonderful location - not so great accommodations.
The family spent 4 night in this establishment. Lighting in the room was so poor we could barely see to unpack our suit cases. The linen and towels were clean. Everything worked in the kitchenette. The last night we arrived back at the hotel to find the door to our room was ajar.I tried to call the front desk but the telephone didn't work. Nothing was missing but it is the responsibility of the management to provide a safe and secure room. We didn't sleep well that night.

Location is not everything!
Amazing Location - 1st accommodation as leave Yosemite from East, overlooks the river/stream. Each room has patio on water - very nice. However, the setting does not warrant the management of cost we experience through your company ($278.00 months in advance of season, $325.00 1 day out, competitor on arrival: $193.00! ). Will tread slowly to use your sight again in future... this is simply gouging on your part, despite the excellent location. Definitly a sore feeling as one vacations in one of USA’s greatest national parks.

Our room had a view of the river which was awesome and the hotel is so close the park entrance! The beds are super comfortable. The hot tubs were shut down on one night of our stay which was sad and our stove top took FOREVER to heat anything to a boil or saute but overall, lovely.
