“Needs a lot of TLC...”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Very disappointed with the overall appearance of the hotel, the colour chosen for the outside was drab and shabby. The approaches to the rooms were filthy, if you are going to carpet outside areas they must be kept clean, these areas had never seen a vacuum cleaner! The room itself was large and very clean but definitely in need of some TLC. The breakfast was poor, we decamped to the nearest diner for the remainder of our stay. The hotel is definitely in need of a full and complete make-over to reflect the prices charged.

Room Tip: Try Best Western or one of the other hotels, this is a last resort hotel!

It was clean and true to what we expected. The location was nice, about twenty minutes from the entrance to the park and close to many food joints. The three things we didnt really expect and didnt like were that the breakfast was all carbs, the wifi was super slow and the towels are hard like sand paper.

First we went to check in and were told we couldn't check in until after 3pm, which really changed our whole schedule for the day. When we finally did check in and went to the room, and the room appeared to be clean. It was a pretty basic room, but extremely over priced. I imagine this because of the location, it is a beautiful area, and really close to everything. However, when we went to sleep my linen had black hair all over it. I had brought my own bedding as I always do and used it willingly! The air conditioner was very loud all night, and the cable in the room was a complete joke. Check out isn't until 11am, but the housekeeper tried barging into the room before 9am and woke us up. When I took a shower that morning I was disgusted to see black pubic hair all over the shower walls, and around the tub. It was obvious that the shower had not been cleaned. The shower curtain had was pink and moldy at the inside bottom. We went to the free breakfast that was offered that consisted of make your own waffles, cereal and raisin bread. Not satisfied at all, we check out and ate somewhere else. But not before I returned the key, and informed the front desk of the dirty shower. The man just shook his head and said okay....
I paid over $140 for that room for one night through Priceline, and expected to have a clean room free of little black public hairs!
Will not be returning, and do not recommend to anyone!

The price of this hotel is fair and the location is very good. Even i did not make reservation, this is really a nice place to stay when i got there. Also, peoples are friendly and the town is very quiet when you want to relax during your trip to Yosemite.
