Historic hotel with creaky wood floors, thick carpets, in-room sinks, and apparently a resident ghost - BUT with a chic little wine and beer bar and a gorgeous patio where they play live music. I felt like I was staying in a movie set. The rooms have the traditional layout so do not expect the cavernous expanse of the Marriot but it is fun and refreshing to stay in a hotel that has retained the original details. Great couples hotel just 30 minutes from Yosemite.

Booked a one night stay here at the last minute. What a wonderful hotel! Groveland is about 30 miles outside of Yosemite's Big Oak Flat entrance so a pretty easy drive into (or out of) the park. Our room was extremely comfortable, great bed and nice antique furnishings. All the reception desk people were incredibly nice and helpful. The back patio/eating area is lovely and comfortable. There are also a number of nice outdoor areas on the 1st and 2nd levels to sit and enjoy the evening (or morning). Couple of things to note: 1) Groveland is a VERY small town with limited dining options. 2) The hotel is right on 120 so there is traffic noise if you're in one of the front rooms. 3) There are no elevators, so if stairs are an issue for you, request a ground floor room. 4) The a/c (and probably heat) are centrally controlled, but the temperature was very comfortable when we were there. 5) Each room is unique so look at the options on line and call if you have questions - they are very helpful.

The staff, Stephanie, Caitlyn, Sam, owner Derek, Marissa, Janice (excuse the name spellings) were so welcoming, gracious and made you feel like honored guests. I had a wonderful birthday celebration there! The rooms were very clean. The bar was very fun! Live music in the wonderful outdoor garden area both nights we were there enjoying drafts of Pliney the Elder! Coffee in the morning on the front porch was delightful! Quaint town and easily walkable. We so enjoyed being outside after returning from Yosemite!! We highly recommend the Groveland Hotel and will look forward to a return visit.

Loved our stay in this charming historic hotel. About as close as you can get to Yosemite National Park without breaking the bank. Still an hour drive into Yosemite Valley, but worth it for the great food and coffee spots in Groveland, plus live music and beautiful outdoor courtyard at the hotel. A great place to come “home” to each night after adventures in YNP. Welcoming staff, charming environment, great experience here. :)

Comfortable clean hotel with awesome Provisions bar attached.

Beware of late check in call ahead if you’re going to arrive late in the evening. Welcome drinks offered at the bar nice touch. Limited menu but well done home-cooked options chef doubled as a bartender was cool to chat up. Queen room price fir good value, but pretty small. WiFi slow but acceptable, hot water scalding. About an hour to Yosemite. Get a great coffee down the street from Mountain Sage.
