No elevator! No cancellation within 7 days.

Posted 17-Sep-2017
Pros: Close to Yosemite.
Cons: Get an elevator. They should be able to afford it with the rates they charge.
Location: Yosemite is the only thing nearby.
I wanted to cancel due to smoke from a fire, but was unable to do so without paying full price anyway. I couldn't cancel earlier because I didn't now there would be a fire. After checking in I was told I would be on the second floor and there is no elevator.

Could be better

Posted 15-Sep-2017
King size bed with sheets that don't fit isn't good enough. My wife (nurse) remade the bed each night so it would stay together. Very noisy air conditioner. Convenient location for exploring Yosemite.

Good hotel close to Yosemite

Posted 13-Sep-2017
Pros: Location Facilities room size good restaurant
Cons: room decoration and lighting pricing policy wifi
Location: close to yosemite park
This is a great option if the hotels and camping in Yosemite are full; the location is just a 1/2 hour drive from the park, and is also a registered YARTS bus stop. The hotel has good facilities and a very good restaurant with reasonable prices, plus gift shop and general store. The rooms could perhaps use a bit of sprucing up in places, but are large and have good facilities such as mini kitchen and small balcony. My only real complaint is the pricing which is very high for what you get. They should also really include wifi which costs $10 extra per day.

Comfortable Lodge close to Yosemite

Posted 09-Sep-2017
This is a comfortable, clean, well-maintained lodge just a mile or two from the main gate to Yosemite National Park. The Merced River tumbles down rocks in the back. Great Pines climb a steep ledge across the river. This is the view from the decks. There is a decent, full menu restaurant and a pizza place on site. Breakfast food, snacks, beer and wine, and travel necessities are available in a shop off the lobby.

Wifi charge

Posted 05-Sep-2017
ONE night for 230 and they try to charge you 10$ a day for wifi? Seriously? These people will try to bleed you dry with extra charges and fees. Also they need to label their building better. It shouldn't take 20 minutes and 5 trips around the parking lot to find a tiny sign.
