Rooms very comfortable and the kitchenette was perfect for our use. We stayed in the building with the inside pool and hot tub and it was the perfect respite from all the hiking. The inhouse restaurant had the best steaks and one of the best Long Island Ice Tea's I have had in many years. We had a couple of issues but they fixed them quickly. Would stay here again

Beautiful location. Right on the Merced River in El Portal, which is about 2 miles outside the park entrance on Hwy 140. The hotel and rooms are very clean and spacious, though a bit outdated. They seem to have refurbished the bathrooms, which have marble counter tops and rooms have a Jacuzzi tub with dual shower heads. Most of the rooms have a private patio which overlooks the river. The hotel is expensive, but all accommodations in and around Yosemite are (I think even tent cabins at Camp Curry go for over $150/night). My advice, book early. The rates increased by over $300/night from the time we booked to what someone would pay this summer. There aren't many food choices around because El Portal is a small town. Because of that, people pretty much are limited to an onsite restaurant and a pizza parlor. Breakfasts are buffet only at $18.95 per person. Dinners are very good and not exorbitantly priced for a hotel. All rooms have a kitchenette with a stove, microwave and a small refrigerator, so you can bring food and eat in your room. I'd say, if you can't get a room in Yosemite, this is your best alternative. I would not hesitate to recommend it.

I don't even know where to start... The price of this place is astronomically expensive for the utterly appalling service you receive. Upon check in, the staff were rude, unhelpful and unaccommodating. They then stood chatting in Spanish amongst themselves for a good 5 minutes instead of checking us in. Wifi is then charged at £10 a DAY on-top of their minimum £300 a night room rate in a place with zero service. We didn't come to Yosemite to be on our phones, however, due to our long stay here we wanted to let family back home know we were safe. The onsite restaurant charges £30 for a pizza and their other restaurant charges £25 for a burger, not reflecting the online price of £18. Room service was unavailable throughout our stay. The on-site ATM charged $5 to withdraw cash too. The kitchens in the room are tiny and unequipped for cooking just about any meal. Their 'mountain view' room is literally just a room overlooking the road. The location isn't even very good for the price you pay as you're still outside of the park and you HAVE to make a reservation to get in, which the hotel don't tell you about and is fully booked for summer 2022. So to actually see Yosemite we had to leave the hotel by 5am every morning. Nobody should have to stay here and pay the prices for this greedy corporation to remain open. Utterly shocking service and treatment from quite honestly rude people who couldn't care less about delivering any kind of customer service - avoid at ALL costs and stay in the park at Yosemite Valley instead.

We stayed here for 4 nights and booked a room with king-size bed and private whirlpool. The room was just great - spacious, clean, quiet. The tube was hugh and there was even a (electric) fireplace which created a beautiful atmosphere. The room also had a small kitchenett with fridge, cooker and sink.The bathroom was also quiet big (a shower for two) and clean. Small downside, we have not had room service once; however upon call they will bring you new towels etc. The pizza place is a very good dining option; and there is also a small shop to buy certain goods, however I recommend in bying them on your way to this hotel at a wallmart (or equivalent) as the products are expensive. There are several swimming- and whirlpools available, however we have not used these facilities. The close distance to Yosemite NP is perfect - it takes you another 15 - 20 minutes to get to the park. We highly recommend this property and would love to return again.
