The location is great. Its just outside Yosemite Valley. It makes it convenient to drive into the park. We had a room adjacent to the road. For some reason, it was loud whenever a car drove by. Id recommend getting one of the rooms on the inside towards the river. The small kitchen was nice. We cooked breakfast and dinner whenever we could not find another option.

Had a lovely view of the Merced river. Room was spacious. The carpets are looking drab and definitely bring slippers to walk around. The store had misc grocery items you would need. We did not use the pools, but will be nice to come back and use them when the pandemic is over.

Loved our room on the river, got lots of use out of our kitchenette, and our 8-year old loved the spa jacuzzi tub. Will plan on staying here again on our next Yosemite road trip.
