Finding comfortable, reasonably priced accommodations around Yosemite has always been challenging for us. It's the law of supply and demand around the park. The River Rock Inn was clean, the bed was comfortable and they provide guests with great white chocolate chip/cranberry cookies. On the downside, we considered the price a bit high and its location is about an hour...

Stayed here over Memorial Day weekend with husband and 6mo old baby. We booked this relatively last minute for a trip to Yosemite, it was only about an hour from the park in a cute little one-horse town that made for a great weekend getaway. We weren't expecting a high end hotel and were completely satisfied with the accommodations -...

Every year we travel to Mariposa for the BMW Motorcycle 49er Rally. We usually stay our last night at one of the chain hotels in town. This year while browsing hotels I came across the River Rock Inn. It looked so quaint and cute I decided we would give it a try. We weren't disappointed. The room was great and...

We were pleased overall with our visit. We arrived late but our key was in the door of our room (we checked a chalkboard outside the office for the location). We had 2 rooms and wished we had put our elderly parents in #7 instead of #6. It seemed a bit larger and the shower is easier to get into...

Stayed here at the beginning of the April. We are a family of four with young children (10 and 5) and had Suite A, the first room behind the welcome sign. Nice big room with comfortable beds and the whole place seems an excellent fit for Mariposa itself - laid back, relaxed and charming. It's in a good location just...

Located slightly off the Main Street, the motel is the oldest. The rooms are quaint but a bit old - I felt the pillows were uncomfortable but it didn't seem to bother my husband. The breakfast was the best we experienced and included toasters granola, fresh fruit salad, yogurt, bagels and muffins. It took over an hour drive to get...

I have reviewed this accommodation in the context of a middle aged couple travelling on a limited budget. We use Tripadvisor reviews to help with the selection of our hotel, disregarding the very best or very worst if they are inconsistent with other reviews. We were happy with our stay here; it was equal to our expectations. The location was...

My sister and I recently stayed here while visiting our father in the local hospital. I grew up in this cute little town- so already knew how quaint the town is. Our room was perfect for us - two adjacent bedrooms to mitigate a snoring issue . The beds were comfortable and everything was clean. The owner - Jill was...

We stayed one night on our way to Yosemite. Our room had no coffee machine, refrigerator, or even a couple of water glasses! It was rather scruffy and dilapidated and poor value for money. We got the impression other rooms were better. So don't get fobbed off with room 8.

What a great place to hang your hat while visiting Yosemite! Jill and the team are friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The rooms are spacious and clean, and for those who travel a lot...you will be happy to know that the HVAC system is VERY quiet and works well.
