This is a lovely old hotel with charming hosts. The rooms we stayed in were in the old adobe part of the hotel and opened directly onto the balcony. The rooms were well furnished but were decked out with classic old furniture that was very appropriate for this old gem. An excellent place to stay prior to entering Yosemite National... More

The staff was super friendly,the room was clean and comfortable. We brought our dog on this vacation, and as advertised, the hotel is very dog-friendly. However, when we arrived in the afternoon, we were very hungry and unfortunately, the only 2 dog-friendly places to eat were closed (a Tea Room and the restaurant at The Hotel Charlotte).

The Hotel was friendly and comfortable with great verandas on all sides and floors. Really felt like going back in time and with California's longest serving Saloon next door, this was a great experience.

We arrived very late around midnight, but they were informed, and had sent us information about key and room. We had a very nice room, maybe not as big as you-re used to in the USA, but it was very nice, and had an great atmosphere. The Continental breakfast which was included was very good. It's a nice place if... More

Absolutely loved it. A great job of preserving the past. Very comfortable bed. Great breakfast. And nothing better than sitting on the porch and watching time go by. We look forward to our next visit.

We stayed here for an October trip to Yosemite. It's a great old hotel, comfortable bed and nice outdoor space. It has a small bar where you can have a beer and get informed by the evening caretaker, Joellen. Not far from the park. I would recommend it.

Always wanted to stay at this historic hotel on our way home thru Yosemite... Finally my husband agreed, begrudgingly. We stayed in "Lyles" room... noted for being haunted! The room was wonderful! Felt like we were in the Gold Rush days.... But wonderful amenities...Keurig, great tv... And spectacular and comfy bed. Enjoyed wine on the veranda overlooking Main Street. The... More

I hesitated to give a good or an average rating for a reason. The hotel is very charming and just perfect for this place. The location is good if you travel to the Yosemite Park, however I think just a bit far away to be a base for multiple days. But for 1 night it is a good location when... More

This is a really old, and really beautiful hotel. Service from the two ladies at the front desk was amazing both on check in and check out. We had planned on staying another night, but due to over booking it was not possible. The team sourced another place to stay very quickly, and we could not be more thankful. Greta... More
