“Pleasant time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2011

I stayed at this place when I was visiting Yosemite national park in Sep 2011. Really liked the place. Was staying with my wife and kid. The room was spacious enough to accomodate the three of us + it had a refrigerator and microwave, quite useful. The place is surrounded by pine trees, The owners are very friendly. They checked to ensure we were comfortable and if we needed any thing additional. Pity I could not try the pool/ spa, will try that next time. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting Twain Heart/ Yosemite.

bed was nice & firm/ rooms are only adequate but fine for our needs/ have microwave & mini-fridge/ put pool & spa on for us (they were just re-opened so were a little dirty, but spa was hot quickly)/ quiet area -located in the pines rather than the foothills, so slightly cooler temperatures than the lower elevations. short walk to all twain harte eateries, etc.

I've be coming to Twain Harte for over 30 years, stayed here alot, The Gables, The Lodge etc. They need to renovate badly, upgrade it, the only thing going up is the price. Next door is gravel and junk always a nice surrounding whilst on vacation. I stay here as a last resort if I can't possibly get a room elsewhere.

In the motel smell wasn't nice, the carpet really disgusting with black, white stains on it. Bedding was clean, just a big wholes on the coverlet... It wasn't my best night there.

The people were nice at check in, but that is the end of the positive review...it went straight off the cliff from there. Overpriced, Noisy, dirty...FREEZING COLD and after an hour of 51deg. in the room, we requested a plug in heater! Not very clean. Very Noisy with road noise and thin walls. Too bad these nice people didn't have a better facility...I won't be back. I can stay in a Day's Inn or LaQuinta way cheaper!

Need a place to stay for last minute ski trip. No frill, fair value. This is an older motel with fresh paint and clean carpet.. Warm room even in cold winter. No problem with room and staff.
