Shower was taped to the wall. Water smells like a sewer. Although fairly clean it was very tiny and the worst hotel we have ever stayed in our 45 years of travel. Orbitz charged us $119 plus taxes. Later we discovered the hotel only charges $49 if reservation is made directly with them.

We stayed here for Easter Sunday and Monday nights and were pleased with the accommodations. They are pet-friendly and the main reason why we chose this motel. It parallels Highway 41 so there's street noise. Very friendly staff and reasonable prices. The only negative thing I can say about it is that they didn't have an ice machine.

Adequate lodging right beside Highway 41 into Yosemite. Very reasonable price. Gill and the staff seem to want to do the right thing. The rooms are private, each sharing one wall with adjacent room. Very basic; cinder block construction and Motel 6-type decoration. We had two beds, fridge and microwave. Bathroom is quite small. The second night, some lovely guest...

Have literally never seen a room this small. A double bed in a tiny tiled space with a bunk bed over it. Lucky the three of us have low BMIs. The only place to sit was the bed. No table. No shelves, wardrobe or drawers of any description so probably best to leave your luggage in the car. Not sure...

Rooms were very comfortable and cute. The staff was welcoming and the views from the property of the sunset we incredible. I wish I had my phone to take a picture of it but honestly this place was well worth the money. We'd love to come back when its warmer to take a dip in the pool.

We came to the room at the end of each day for shower and sleep but the place more to offer. The room has everything you need and even more. The staff is very helpful and welcoming, they provided all the information and some additional stuff that we were missing. The only thing that we didn't like was the smell...

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst exploring Yosemite. On check in we were warned that the room was small but we were both pleasantly surprised! Spacious room, very clean, bathroom lovely. The only thing is that the air con is very loud - but we both agree we'd rather have loud air con than no air con! We would...

The best at this hotel was the view. It overlooks the mountains and it was lovely to get up to in the morning. We were on a roadtrip for three weeks and this was the most expensive hotel we satyed at and we were very dissapointed. Nothing good to say about the rooms. The clerk was friendly but in the...

My family stayed at this motel a couple of times or three times since the location is close to where we have a job. They have upgraded some of the rooms recently and they are always comfortable and clean. Most recently we stayed in the large wooden room with the kitchenette and fireplace. I had been looking forward for a...

Very dirty place (see pictures). Uncomfortable arrangement of furniture in the room - short and uncomfortable bed, no desk, light switches and power plugs hard to reach. Noisy and stinky AC. I only met two bored women from the staff, not really friendly nor welcoming. 20 USD for a load of laundry. Quiet surroundings, close to Yosemite, nice area.
