This was a great hotel stay, The room was very clean and confortable and the staff was gracious and accomodating. The hot complimentary breakfast was a nice touch - no buffet lines with questionable eggs!

We had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. We wanted to get to Leland snow park first thing in the morning the next day, so we stayed at this hotel the Sunday before MLK (jan 16). Check in was a breeze, and best of all they had a check in amenity for our 2 kids. It was a mug...

Even without a pet, this hotel is excellent for this category of hotel. Very comfortable, excellent staff, very clean and maintained rooms and property. If you have a pet, they don't seem to shove you in a dingy room in the back and it is one of the best Pet friendly hotels I have tried. The room was very comfortable...

Some of the rooms are right next door to the breakfast and restaurant. If you need a closer placement, please ask front desk We also deep...

After a long day from Yosemite with car troubles, it was a pleasure to check in. We were allocated a double double room overlooking the pool. It was clean, well appointed, with comfortable beds. The staff at reception were pleasant and the booking was in order, and the complex easily explained. The pool was slightly warm, but the spa was...

We are sorry that some other guests, disturbed your sleep. Normally this is a very quiet hotel nestled in the woods. A call to our 24 hours desk might have helped, but we understand your concerns.

Location is close by to ski resorts and Yosemite. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The front desk was courteous. For breakfast they serve at the restaurant in front which is quite good. Wish they would have more options.

The room was basic and OK. The air con was good. Dinner was OK/average. The dessert of tapioca was not really appetisiing. The Menued breakfast was OK with the usual omelettes. Don't forget to ask for your 'fresh fruits', or you won't be given.

Thank you for your feedback. Although we think that it is unusual for a hotel to offer a complimentary hot served breakfast with daily omelets specials and popular items, we do appreciate your comments. We hope your next stay is similar to most of our other guests; we want everyone happy. I agree with you about the complimentary tapioca desert;...

Very clean hotel, with very friendly staff. Food at the resturant was good. No elevator for my wife who is partially disabled. Overall for the price that we paid this is a great choice for anyone coming or going to Yosemite. In the summer months they have a bus stop to take you to yosemite.

We had great service and a good time! The only issue was the refrigerator wasn't working. We discovered in the morning, that it had been unplugged!! They offer breakfast with your stay and have a full service restaurant and bar/lounge.
