We loved the hotel! Very comfortable and warm. The front desk was so welcoming and helpful. Would totally recommend the Mexican food next door and the little coffee shop across the street! We couldn't be happier and were so grateful for the military discount and pet friendly

Clean room, inviting lobby and historically conscious. Quiet evening. Clean bathroom with an interesting claw foot tub. Heater worked nicely during the snowy night. Comfortable hotel. Parking in the rear. Located in the middle of downtown and an easy 1/2 hour ride to Yosemite.

How far is it to Yosemite entrance? Thanks

Yes they have bathrooms. They're small but adequate - with a claw tub/shower combo. Some rooms are renovated so when booking you may want to request for an updated room (ours was). It's about 24 miles to the east entrance and another 20 miles to the village itself.

"One flight walk up, no elevator, no bell hop"
"Our room was at the back, so really quiet."
"Look at the Hotels website where they describe each room. There description of each of the rooms is spot on."
