          Sweet little place, simple and charming. Décor in retro style, no TV, evokes mountain cabin ambience. Enjoyed the coffee and cakes. Friendly atmosphere. Great place to stay in Sierra Nevada area. Liked it a lot.

          Do the two rooms upstairs share a bathroom only with each other? I'd like to book both those rooms for our family of 5, and I'm OK sharing a bathroom with my family members, but not with the other motel guests. I can't find any information on the website and no one is answering the phones.

          this is a very rural quaint town and you will be okay. family of five, well. you will all have to share. this is the cutest place to stay in town and i say do it. just be mindful that you all have to share the bathroom.

          I think this question is meant for the motel staff...not the Trip Advisor members. I reserved this motel online: google 'El Mono motel".

          Hi, I know swimming is okay, but how many people actually do take to the water to feel the floating power. :) And, would my kiddos need water shoes for the entry? Thanks!
