I love the El Mono, it has a vibe that is the essence of Lee Vining and Mono Lake. Coffee shop Latte Da is fabulous with great coffees and baked goods, and the breakfast sandwiches on house-made focaccia are delicious (favorite: Stellar Blue). The rooms are generally pretty basic, but they've upgraded one queen room and it was delightful. The upgrades are tasteful, homey, and just perfect. Bed comfy, towels new, shower design reminds me of a spa, even a little electric fireplace for those chilly mornings. Sipping coffee under their red umbrellas in front looking toward the lake or in the garden in back are peaceful moments to treasure.

Very convenient stop after a couple of days visiting Yosemite and before traveling on to Lake Tahoe. Not luxurious but clean and with a very comfortable bed and good shower. We were in number 6 which was one of the self contained rooms. It was to the back of the property so no problem with road noise. It also seemed to have been fairly recently redecorated. No tv which was no problem at all for us. Also no fridge and that would have been nice to have but we managed. No air con but again we were able to open the windows and although hot during the day it was cool at night so no problem. Good value and would recommend

Best value accommodation around. Not super luxurious but clean, warm and comfy. Near the Tioga pass Yosemite entrance, this was a great one night stop over.

Great cafe on site. I would thoroughly recommend.

This was the perfect stop for those traveling the Sierra Nevadas and entering into Yosemite Park we enjoyed coffee in the morning and one of the best breakfast sandwiches ever and enjoyed the view of Mono Lake I highly recommend this place to anyone traveling through the area looking for a simple comfortable place to stay.

We stayed one night while travelling from Death Valley to Yosemite via Tioga road. It's a cute little Motel right in the city center of Lee Vining and close to Mono Lake. Everything was as described, quiet and clean. Beds are comfy as well. Of course there is not much luxury but the prices were great. We can really recommend El Mono Motel!
