Terrible service, no hot water and broken bed.
This place is a complete ripoff! No heater turned on, no help with reservations with dinner or tv. No hot water and the bed frame was broken.
This is an old place and could be charming but it’s not. Food was good but very expensive. Very disappointed! No way a four star!!!

Pleasant unplanned stay
Weer arrived laaste evening without a booking. The young lady at reception was very friendly and helpful. We got a room with a view - was great to wake up to the storms of water in the creek. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed but e were there to the Cowboy Tavern - which turned out to be an enjoyable evening with good food.
The room was clean and had everything you would need. We would return, if we are lucky enough to return to this part of the world again

Need a cleaning
The location is perfect, but inn is poorly maintained
Found leftover packaging under the beds covered in dust. Sunbeds at the pool as well as all other outdoor furniture were too filthy to use. The balcony was too small for 4 people- with a table fit only as firewood

Driving onto the property was quaint and inviting. We had come here as it was only 3 minutes from the Jazz Train. The room was horrible! The furniture was overly worn and floors dirty. We had to run the water for at least 15 minutes to get hot water! What a waste of our valuable water! We did not notice the smoke alarm was not working until the next morning. We were not sure why the alarm was wrapped up in tissue or paper!!! I am attaching pictures that speak for themselves!

We just returned from a trip to Yosemite National Park. The Park is absolutely worth the trip but we were extremely disappointed in Narrow Gauge Inn. We paid $330+ per night for a an extremely tired room. First the positives. 1). Good location - very serene. That is really the only good thing I can say. Negatives: This was probably a very quaint & sweet inn back in the day - like maybe the 1960's. It is DESPERATELY in need of a facelift. The room was very dark &. dingy. It had knotty pine paneling (like we had in our "rumpus room' back in the 60's), extremely old furniture (you would not even be able to sell it at a yard sale), the shower didn't drain properly so you had to stand in dirty water, the plumbing did not work on the bathroom sink, the mattress was covered with a topper & very uncomfortable. I realize you don't come to Yosemite for the accommodations; however, it's nice to return to a pleasant room after a long day at the Park. Save your money. For just a little more you can go to the beautiful, new Tenaya Lodge just a few minutes down the road!
