You will find a variety of accommodations here. There are motel-style rooms with either a queen bed or two double beds for $89 per night; cabins along the river for $99 per night; and suites, which include a microwave and wet bar, for $125 per night. The delightful location has lots of trees, and the sounds of the river are audible as well. In your leisure time, you can fish for trout, pan for gold or enjoy a walk in the snow in winter. A continental breakfast is included, and every room has satellite television.
Strong, offensive sulphur smell from the water in the shower. Room heater and air conditioner would not operate. When I asked the owner about these items, he smugly replied, "it's well water. It's summer - we turn off the heaters." But its still cold in the morning, and we were uncomfortable. The owner was rude. The smelly water is offensive. I know from experience that the well water can be treated to eliminate offensive odors. This place appears cute and neat on the surface, but its a nightmare. Stay at a AAA-rated hotel. A one-star outshines this place, which is way way over-priced.
Wow, in the forest with a large creak going though the side of it that you can fish and swim in. My son pulled out an 18 inch trout, almost 2 pounds. Grassy picnic areas, relaxing, pease and quite you can't get at home. It made a wonderfull memory with a suite to stay in. This place is just a good as visiting Yosemite National Park. Split your vacation if you can and just relax at the Inn. Its well worth it.
Don't let those hate mongrols deture your chance at a wonderful stay like they almost did me. I talked to the managers about those who write a bad review and they said they just can't do anything about it. He said that if you count the numbers of those that stay and had a good time and those that just write on Tripadvisory you can see its in the range of 10,000 to 1.
Where do I begin. Despite our email confirmation of our two day stay at the Inn, they said we did not have a reservation for the second night and we would have to find another place to stay. We paid ahead for a cabin, but they gave us a room to stay in that was half the price and didn't give us a partial refund of our money. There were no sheets on the sofa bed and the office was closed, so my son had to sleep on the floor. Our phones did not work in Yosemite so we were unable to find other accomodations. Rude service and very poor customer service. I would never recommend this Inn to anyone.
When I called to make a reservation, they did not tell me they have a punitive cancellation policy. Additionally, without my knowledge, they charged my credit card for the stay on the date I made the reservation. I called to cancel several days before the arrival date and they told me they had already charged my credit card for the full amount and there would be no refund. They told me: "Everyone has a cancellation policy, you just didn't ask for it"
it's just a motel really, but the setting is so beautiful you're almost inclined to believe otherwise... with the large trees surrounding it, the river running in the back and the swings and barbeques on the lawns, it looks really charming.
just off road 120, 10 minutes or so from the northern entrance to the park, it's the perfect location for a Yosemite vacation (outside the valley, that is).
the room was a plain old motel room, but with the most comfortable bed and pillows i've ever met in any hotel! that was a really nice surprize.
the continental breakfast was as expected - not a large selection, but all the basics were there.
as for the price - well, $135 a night on Labor Day Weekend when most all rooms in the Yosemite greater area are taken is not too bad i guess... there are also family cabins/suites for a little more money.
overall, nice experience, i'd definitly consider going back there next time i'm around.
Built by an Italian immigrant in 1918, this small hotel is full of antiques including red velvet covered furnishings. The
rooms are quaint and basic; some have connecting bathrooms, which can be a perfect setup for traveling families or ...
