The Wawona Hotel is an amazing historic structure for which the Park Service deserves much credit for maintaining so beautifully and in the spirit of its original builders in the 1870s. The broad verandah at the front of the hotel is filled with wicker chairs that creak pleasantly when sitting down with a glass of wine or iced tea. There are puzzles to put together by the fireplace in the evening. There are no televisions or telephones in the rooms, and wifi connectivity is minimal, which is a plus when you are a low-key low-tech sort of a person. My only caution is that the lighting in the room where we stayed was extremely dim...too dim to read a book in the evening. We had to take the shades off the bedside lamps in order to read in bed, and the general lighting in the room was provided by a single candle bulb. Lighting is something we don't usually pay much attention to...until it isn't there. So if you go to the Wawona and reading is important to you, then pack a reading lamp of your own and you will have a very satisfying and peaceful stay and at the same time a fine taste of old Sierra history.
My wife and I were travelling around Calafornia from the UK and had three nights booked at the Tin Lizzie Inn, are room was a small suite complete with outside space to sit and relax in, which was more than we were expecting!, the hospitality was very good and nothing was any trouble (some people may find this too intense, but just the kind nature of the owners). Breakfasts were amazing and set you up for the day.

I quite liked the wrap-around porches with places to sit, the named rooms and the amenities within the room. Delightful breakfast; we each received "coupons" and could order from the menu. I loved the proximity of the "oldest saloon in California." Groveland was a small mountain town with a large park area - children's playground, picnicing, toilets. The next morning we really liked the book sale that the library was having. We liked the reading room in the hotel; it had a lot of atmosphere. If we happened to be passing through Groveland, CA again, we would stay at the Groveland Hotel.

We had a wonderful stay. Front desk staff was excellent, very friendly and accommodating. The room was spacious with a great balcony. The bed was super comfy. At times we could hear the people upstairs moving around but this was not a big problem. The pool area was nice. The gym was small but sufficient. The hotel location is great, close to the south gate, easy access for exploring yosemite. We would love to come back here some day.
They have thought of everything to make the satay enjoyable. The rooms are spacious and beautiful. The gardens are a treat. The amenities add to the enjoyment. The breakfast was gourmet and catered to our requirements as vegetarians while being fully satisfactory for all
