I was somewhat pleasantly surprised by this place. We booked at the last minute for a trip to Yosemite, and I was worried this place was going to be a complete dump. It wasn't
It's a basic hotel with friendly front desk people at check-in/out. The room was decent size and clean. Beds aren't real comfortable.
TV channels were limited. Not that it mattered much, some basic news and weather were good enough. Didn't try the Internet connection.
Breakfast is nothing exceptional, but it's alright if you can get by on some danishs, toast, cereal and apples.
The pool is pretty small, again not something we used.
My only complaint about this place was the distance to Yosemite was quite long. Approx 1 hr drive. Especially when we stayed at the park into the evening. Driving the long trip on Hwy 140 (winding, mountainous road) in the dark is a big downer.
My next visit I'll be trying to stay somewhere in the park or closer to the park. In a pinch though this place was alright.
