“Warning!!!!!”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

The mattress pads were filthy with hair and cigarette burns obviously not washed between guests,, there was no guide in the room to figure out the tv or the WiFi access, the dead bolt did not lock it was 10 pm and the owner said she would get her husband but it would have to wait until after he did his nightime prayers. Seriously....that's customer service???? She could not understand why we were frustrated. The heat did not work but the air worked really well like freezing. In the summer the pool closed by 9:30..special time for me because I questioned. Wouldn't you think in the summer it would be open like most motels to accomodate their guests . The rug was shredded by the bathroom door and the final straw was she made it sound like she was renting us the room....doing us a favor as it was her last room available... NOT.... the parking lot was no way full at 12 midnight. The business folks in town all lifted their eyes when we said where we were staying and warned us not to stay at the WildWood (old name) across from pee wee golf because their son ran it and it is just as bad.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms!!!!!!!!!!!!The only place to stay in Twain Harte is the Gables. They have b...

The heating problem has been resolved -- I had three heaters in my room. The room itself was clean, and the place was very nice and quiet, we had a good sleep. The only problem is the strong smell of "air fresheners" is actually typical for 1-2-star hotels/motels, but if the managers can address that, this would improve the quality of stay. The managers were very nice and friendly, so I recommend this place for families.

This is the first time my wife and I have stayed at the Eldorado Motel. The accomodations were nice, the beds firm, the rooms clean with a micowave and small fridge, and the hospitality of the owners, Veena and Chhater Jain, was especially sweet. The motel is nestled in the pines where the air is quite clean and crisp every morning. I recommend this motel to anyone as it is quiet, not being in the middle of town, yet only 20 seconds to downtown for restaurants and shops.

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.
