Yosemite Gateway Motel, Lee Vining
Sleeping on the sidewalk by the noisy main highway
our hotel room door opens toa 2 feet of sidewalk and the curb of the main highway...I was awake most of the night because of the traffic on the street, it was like sleeping on a sidewalk of a main hghway with noisy trucks passing by within 15 feet of your bed.

Great view, Great beds, bathroom needs help.
The beds and bedding great. The bathroom clean, but tile grout falling apart. The room didn’t seem level. Great View out my window of Mono Lake. Parking hard to get into if you drive a bigger vehicle. The guy checking is in not very social or welcoming, but seemed nicer in the morning.
