This hotel has comfy bed and a spacious room, with small fridge and microwave, TV and AC. The bathroom is standard, bathtub and necessary amenities but not more than standard for a 1 star hotel. Bizarre was having only two old hangers for my clothes where normally you would expect at least 5-8 [ especially considering that for the Winter...

Really disappointed with this place, it wasn't cheap but really poor. The staff were unfriendly and unhelpful, felt more like an intruder than a guest, room not clean, tiles on the bathroom floor broken. The town is delightful and Yosemite is truly amazing.

The room was clean and it was a 1.5 hour drive from Yosemite, a lot cheaper than motels closer to the park. Breakfast was ok, standard motel. Cleaning of the rooms everyday. Good restaurants nearby (happy hamburger had vegetarian/vegan choices!)!

We needed a hotel for our trip to Yosemite after Christmas. I was pleased with the $99 price tag and the friendliness of the staff. The room was basic with two queen beds, mini fridge, microwave, coffee pot and free WiFi (too slow to stream movies). The coat-rack was falling out of the wall and not use able. The bath...

After going out for a lovely meal, we came back to the Monarch to go to sleep. I pulled back the covers of the bed, to find big clumps of hair in the bed!!! I should have taken photos, but I was so shocked, I called front desk straight away. I have never had this experience before and if it...

Apart from no maintainence on the pool , this accommodation was lovely. Rooms were a decent size and beds comfortable. Big bathroom with bath! Solid doors blocked out most hallway noise. Breakfast was complimentary even though its basic. Able to use laundry at their sister motel down the road just two minutes. Would stay there again.

The Monarch hotel is conveniently situated for Yosemite, being an hour's drive (as long as you don't get stuck behind a stubborn bus driver who won't move over to let you pass). The welcome wasn't particularly friendly but the room was adequate and comfortable. The bathroom needs to be replaced as it is really out-dated. The fridge was noisy and...

Go back to service desk, rang the bell once this...

Our room was large and comfortably spacious, but the bed was just ok at this spartan place on the main drag through Mariposa. Ample parking around back. If you just need a place to crash, this works, but if you're looking for charm, you won't find it. The free "breakfast" was so basic and yucky looking that we skipped it....

I had to pay a premium price to get a last minute booking for a place reasonably close to Yosemite park. Still, the room was clean and that was the main thing. The continental breakfast was adequate only.
