During a road trip 10 years ago I've stayed in this motel. A great place if you want to visit Yosemite National Park. Clean rooms, friendly staff, good location and a nice restaurant too. Loved the atmosphere!

Location, location, location.
Such a great place to stay if you’re visiting Yosemite. Stayed for three nights as a family of four. Room was clean and comfortable with plenty of space for us. Rooms have fridge but no microwave, although you can use the one in the lobby. Kids loved the huge outdoor pool and fishing/swimming in the river across the street. Cute gift shop, great bar/restaurant. Would recommend to friends and family visiting the area.

The only good thing about this hotel is the location to Yosemite. It was dingy, dirty, and just kinda seedy. They clearly do not put any of the extremely high rates they charge back into the rooms. The a/c units were old and very loud and nothing really seemed clean. Before you assume I'm a snob when it comes to hotels - I really am not. I've stayed in multiple National Parks where the facilities were lacking and I don't expect a 5 star stay everywhere I go. But my bare minimums of cleanliness were not met at all. I would never stay here again, and I highly recommend no one else does either.

Older Style But It Fits the Location.
This is a charming older motel, but it feels right at home in this rustic location. It is nestled in the hills right on Hwy 140 just a short drive from the Yosemite Park gate. The bedding was fine, rooms were clean. There are two pools, both pretty nice. And just across the road is a beach on the river. There are carved bears all over the property, a friendly touch. We thought the price was pretty good for such a close location.

reasonable hotel option for visiting Yosemite
Check in was quick and the staff was pleasant
This was an older hotel, but it was clean
The room was decent sized.
The room had a few outlets, but they were quite old and wouldn’t hold most plugs without them falling out. Charging phones was difficult. It was a moot point because there is no cell service at all. Wifi was $10 per day and worked OK, but not super fast.
The air conditioner worked well.
They had a big TV, but not very many channels
They only had one working ice machine for over 100 rooms. It was quickly emptied with people filling big coolers.
They had a very nice pool, but it was very popular since it was over 100 F that day. We ended up going to the river across the street which was also popular. Very refreshing.
The main restaurant was closed, but the grill was open. It had a quite limited menu, but the items were good and service was pretty quick.
The hotel was reasonably quiet
There were a few annoying issues, but overall the hotel was satisfactory for our needs when visiting Yosemite.
