We stayed for one night on the way to Yosemite--nice comfortable room.Beware if you stay on second floor there is no elevator. Breakfast was very good at restaurant on property. Coffee in the lobby is excellent! Location is very private and quiet,,,,not within walking distance to town shops and restaurants.

Great news! An elevator is coming this year ! At the moment we offer complimentary baggage handling to all our guests. Our in-lobby coffee is a local roasting company, we are happy you enjoy it. Thank you for noted the quiet location near but not bothered by nearby shopping centers, great restaurants and attractions like Yosemite National Park. Christopher Link...

The staff were friendly as were the other people staying there. The hotel was clean and comfy and the onsite restaurant with the included breakfast was yummy! The surroundings were pleasant and relaxing and I was able to find my way around easily. Overall, the experience was very satisfying!

Room was nicer than I expected. However walls and ceiling are thin. Was on the ground floor and people above were walking around quite a bit and it was very noisy. Hallway noise also noticeable. Bed was pretty comfortable. Didn't particularly like my dealing with desk person a few days before arrival with a change I needed to make. Weren't...

We are pleased that you enjoyed the full served complimentary breakfast and comfy bed. If noise is a concern, I always suggest the upper floors. Same as other hotels, too. We provide complimentary luggage service and our new elevator is coming soon. Christopher Link General Manager

We were treated by some very friendly clerks at check in who were fast and efficient checking in a long line of guests. We were upgraded to a very nice large room that was considered a suite as it included a sitting area and a large whirlpool tub. The bathroom included a double sink and a large vanity for holding...

Thank you for your detailed review of our hotel. We appreciate your nice compliments on breakfast, amenities, and our friendly service. In reply to the elevator question, we are adding a elevator this year, probably this summer.

We picked this hotel for its location relatively close (2.5 hours drive) to Yosemite and based on the strength of the reviews from other tripadvisors. We weren't disappointed. Our room was spacious and warm, with a good sized bed, and there was also very little traffic noise from the nearby autoroute. The nearby town of Sonora also offers some great...

Great review! The only small note would be that the Yosemite National Park Gate is 1.25 hours from the hotel and the Yosemite Valley is another 25-30 minutes along a beautiful treed access. I am glad you stopped to buy a lunch to take into the valley. The valley has restaurants, but an alfresco lunch under the waterfalls, trees, mountains...

Close to touristy areas, easy to get in and out of. Nice, friendly staff. I enjoyed the breakfast in the restaurant next door, that was part of the room price. Lots to do in the surrounding area, will definitely stay there again.

The facility was in good condition and the room was excellent. We enjoyed the fireplace, that made it very cozy for us in the room. The staff was efficient and helpful. The internet and T.V. worked great. The breakfast was good and the food service area was well stocked. The bed was very firm, just the way we like it....
