This review is like no other I have done before. It appears from many of the other reviews that people either love this hotel or hate it. Well we loved it. Do not consider this hotel if you like your conveniences and comforts. The hotel does not pretend to provide them, so if you want them go elsewhere!
So why did we like it. This was our first visit to the Yosemite National Park and we were blown away with the beauty and grandeur. Frankly the last thing in the world I wanted to do was communicate by phone or surf the internet. This hotel transported me to another time, with walls covered in history and stories of the park. It was exactly what I was looking for. I passed a number of hotels on the way in to the park that would have been perfect BUT not for our Yosemite trip..for that we needed something different which is exactly what we got.
The staff were very helpful and provided excellent service. We found the restaurant food and service to be very good and better than we had expected. We did have a room with an en suite bath but as other reviews have stated that is not always the case.
When visiting the valley (with all the other tourists) it can spoil the serenity of the location but returning to the tranquility of the hotel brings you back to where you want to be. Silence and stars ...lots of them!
So it’s simple:
Silence , stars, history, something different or
wi-fi, fridge, comfy beds, AC, equipped bathrooms
Make your choice!
