“This will work.”
Reviewed 1 October 2012

If all else is booked then this is right outside park past the town of Groveland about 15 minutes on left. Continental breakfast was ok until you get into town and really fill up. I stayed at 1 room , 2 twins for 135. Thought it was overpriced; fan was noisy and water did smell I believe because is from a well?? Location is good and quiet. If all else is booked this will work. Do Not PAY the 5 dollars for internet, does not work.

Hard to see how they survive with endless poor ratings, which we endorse. Stayed 3 nights in September as everywhere else booked out, substandard accom, with poor breakfast, however it could be fantastic with beautiful setting, but a bit like a dumping ground. Bedding clean but room only "cleaned" 2 days, and even left an envelope with expectation of a tip. Best aspect was proximity to Yosemite gate.

We stayed in a hotel room here. The room was poor/average - not much room, so-so beds, thin scratchy towels, a strange layout. Worst thing was super-thin curtains so the glow from the outside lights poured in and made it really hard for my children and I to sleep. It's also further from Groveland than I'd expected so you need to keep driving back there to get groceries or a meal (next time I'd try and stay in the town which seemed really nice). On the plus side - a lovely setting, children's playground, breakfast offering was pretty good (although you'll probably need to supplement if you're planning on hiking in Yosemite and there aren't many chairs) and lady at reception was very friendly (man is not). Overall maybe a 2.5 rating for me - I wouldn't recommend as a first choice.

This is a $40 a night accomodation that charges $125+. It is situated on a "riverside" that is more like a sewage ditch. It is close to Yosemite National Park and other outdoor attractions. The towels are like sandpaper and if you arrive after 9PM the inn-keeper is upset that you arrived so late. There are no snack machines for anyone who hasn't eaten and no stores for miles so bring food with you. The drink machine only takes coins and if you have to wake the inn keeper up for change, he will be again pissed. You will either like it or you won't but for the price, this place is a rip-off.

This review is for the hotel room, not the cabin. My wife and I stayed here last summer. The room was nothing special so don't expect 5 stars hotel. Everything about this place was dated. The TV, bed, sink, etc. But the best thing was the scenic view and the river...so beautiful. We needed a place to stay, shower, and sleep. This place more than meet our needs and the price was right. Plus there was a decent breakfast as well. I will definitely stay here again for sure.

This camping style B&B is located 20 mins to the Yosemite west gate. Rooms quite old and bath very, but all is clean and low budget. I would have preferred a location in the park, definitely less cheap.

Worst stay of our trip across America. My husband and I chose this place as it was close to the Yosemite national park. It wasn't worth the money at all. There was no privacy for starters anybody could see right through the window in the front door (bedroom) and also through the bathroom window. When we first got there I couldn't even use the bathroom because there were a group of maintenance guys working right outside the window. I eventually used one of their old towels to block out the window. Another problem was the bathroom sink and shower weren't cleaned there was hair and shavings in both. The airconditioner stopped working after an hour and the maintenance guys started banging away at 6:45 the next morning right outside our cabin.
Another thing watch that you don't leave any dirty dishes or they'll charge you an extra cleaning fee.
Don't bother staying here there are a few motels and a lodge just down the road, check them out instead, oh and watch for the broken glass in the picture frame above the bed head.
