Room was clean and odor free with a fairly nice, updated bathroom (new tile and no mildew or stains). Bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows. We found it difficult to get the air conditioner adjusted to maintain a comfortable temp -- old standard dial type controls instead of a thermostat. Breakfast is not good -- you'll find enough to...

I was a bit unsure of this place prior to our trip because of some of the comments on trip advisor but there was no need to worry. This place is really OK. It is a motel but we had a room to the rear on the second floor which gave us enough privacy and also we did not hear...

Staff was wonderful. Room was above average but still very comfortable and clean. Easy access in and out, front desk helpful with local information on locations to find certain stores, etc. Check out was very easy and again the staff was very helpful and accommodating to us. We will be staying here at this location again in October for daughters...

we stayed almost a week at this hotel. it was good enough for convenience, price, free breakfast, close enough to yosemite where we were married. other than a few minor things: slow drain when showering, slow internet, it was fine. However, one simple thing that appeared to not be done-breakfast room, PLEASE WIPE DOWN THE DIRTY TRASH DISPENSERS!! the eggs...

The kitchen staff, Lisa and Ashley were absolutely fantastic -- made you feel like you were at a B & B!! Otherwise very clean and well kept property. Under slight construction, but was not invasive at all.

Very nice hotel. Clean. Breakfast good with very nice staff. A little far from Yosemite but there are not a lot of places near there. Great country atmosphere. Quaint little town that it is located in. Whirlpool was great and just the right temperature.

This place gives Best Western a black eye. Rooms were decent enough, although toilet seat was loose, shower leaked, and heat/air was noisy. The problem came when a huge tour bus arrived, parked directly outside our room right next to our ventilation system, and ran the engine for almost 45 minutes, pumping foul-smelling fumes into our room and that of...

We stayed 3 nights while visiting Yosemite National Park. The motel is located on a hillside so there is an added benefit in having room level parking on the first two floors! We were on the second floor so we parked in back and walked to our room on the same level. We were in a king room which was...
