Awesome room,close to Yosemite,not much else
Room was awesome, small kitchenette with basic pans, bowls, utensils provided. It was very roomy and had a small balcony, the only down side was no phone service or internet so we had to pay ten dollars for internet per 24 hrs. And also not too many places to eat around there like fast food. There is a small restaurant onsite but kind of expensive and food was ok. They have a small store next to lobby with basics. Staff was very polite. Room was great! Location was very close to Yosemite enterance, maybe research where you will eat or what to take to cook before you get there.

The staff is friendly, the restaurant was very tasty, the view is amazing and the accommodations are rustic and comfortable If a bit dated. My family and I enjoyed the visit immensely and would recommend this resort for sure!
