Where do I start? Comparing the place with a dump is an understatement. I booked it through hotels.com and I was supposed to have a suite with a kitchenette. The clerk did not honor my reservation. The room smelled like green onions. The towels were white but every thing else (linens, etc) were gray color and the comforter had severe...

This reminds me of the motels I stayed in in the 60's as a kid. Rooms are worn, dingy and small, but the bed was newer and very clean. No bugs!! The walls are thick, couldn't hear the family next door, and they had a child. It could use a good cleaning and replace the carpet, but not bad. There...

We had the "presidential suite" and it was a nightmare. The place is old and smelly, Their carpet is old. The tv screen was green and impossible to watch. There was mold. This place needs a lot of help. Maybe a remodeling would help. We were very disappointed. We should have stayed at the campground for that price. Warning- STAY...

We were not getting any hotel for the long weekend in Yosemite. We got El Dorado for a very good rate. We were 2 families & we got 2 separate rooms which were so neat & clean. The room had every comfort & was quite comfortable with 2 queen beds. An excellent beautiful location with a golf course across the...

The owners are an Indian family, very sweet, helpful and friendly. They would call you after you check in to ensure you are fine.. And suggest nice breakfast places around. The rooms were very clean for a motel. Prices are Ok considering its California and peak tourist season. Much better than other motels around.

The owners were very helpful and accommodating. The facility was quiet and restful. The pool and the spa were an added factor that made the stay so pleasant; The price was very good for two people and a small dog. It is a nice walk to travel on a serene pathway into the main part of Twain Heart. I am...

The heating problem has been resolved -- I had three heaters in my room. The room itself was clean, and the place was very nice and quiet, we had a good sleep. The only problem is the strong smell of "air fresheners" is actually typical for 1-2-star hotels/motels, but if the managers can address that, this would improve the quality...

This is the first time my wife and I have stayed at the Eldorado Motel. The accomodations were nice, the beds firm, the rooms clean with a micowave and small fridge, and the hospitality of the owners, Veena and Chhater Jain, was especially sweet. The motel is nestled in the pines where the air is quite clean and crisp every...
