We liked how close it was to Yosemite and the beautiful mountain views. The room was adequate, but we were very displeased that there was no free WiFi. What hotel still charges for internet??? Also the restaurant had a very limited menu, was pricy and closed at 8:30.

Our reservations in the park were cancelled and this actually worked out almost as good for us and much more affordable for a big family. This lodge seemed to be in the middle of nowhere however its a large place with a bar and grill (food was okay) and a small store inside the office with general goods and food. The beds are so comfortable and the view of the green hills across the street with a charming path along the river won me over. Also pleased with the spacious bathroom. Its a lively inn until around 10 then gets perfectly quiet. My only issue was porch light leaking into the room at night I recommend a sleep mask. Very welcoming staff as well, would return.

We stopped here to get a room for a shower and comfy bed after two day visits to Yosemite while boondocking in our campervan alongside the Merced River. Staff were doing their best with little notice to reopen after the Civid-19 closure. Food was scarce but available. Was a nice change after camping.

Nice and clean rooms with a lot of convenience makes this place so unique. Customer service is very user friendly. Ideally located. You can go for a nice walk in this very scenic environment. Nice small grocery store nearby just in case.

This is an OK place to sleep when visiting Yosemite. prices are high due to low offer and high demand. Wifi is expensive and doesn't work properly due to location. Room are clean but are due for some renos. Staff are OK but not necessarily the most helpful.
