I stayed at this place when I was visiting Yosemite national park in Sep 2011. Really liked the place. Was staying with my wife and kid. The room was spacious enough to accomodate the three of us + it had a refrigerator and microwave, quite useful. The place is surrounded by pine trees, The owners are very friendly. They checked...

bed was nice & firm/ rooms are only adequate but fine for our needs/ have microwave & mini-fridge/ put pool & spa on for us (they were just re-opened so were a little dirty, but spa was hot quickly)/ quiet area -located in the pines rather than the foothills, so slightly cooler temperatures than the lower elevations. short walk to...

I've be coming to Twain Harte for over 30 years, stayed here alot, The Gables, The Lodge etc. They need to renovate badly, upgrade it, the only thing going up is the price. Next door is gravel and junk always a nice surrounding whilst on vacation. I stay here as a last resort if I can't possibly get a room...

The people were nice at check in, but that is the end of the positive review...it went straight off the cliff from there. Overpriced, Noisy, dirty...FREEZING COLD and after an hour of 51deg. in the room, we requested a plug in heater! Not very clean. Very Noisy with road noise and thin walls. Too bad these nice people didn't have...

Need a place to stay for last minute ski trip. No frill, fair value. This is an older motel with fresh paint and clean carpet.. Warm room even in cold winter. No problem with room and staff.

This is a simple hotel quite well positioned for visiting Yosemite, though the park is well over 50 miles from the motel. The room had good facilities with tea or coffee maker, a fridge and micro-wave oven. Of course the village of Twain Harte is just a short distance away where there are bars and restaurants. Twain Harte is a...

We stayed in Room 5. If this was to be judged on service and willingness to do well, it would rate 5 stars. Unfortunately the new owners have inherited run-down accommodation which needs lots of money spending on it AND attention to small details. Recommendation to stay is based on expectation that the willingness is translated into actual improvements, starting...
