We appreciate the cleanliness of the rooms and comfortable beds. The owners were accommodating even during stressful Covid times. The Lucky Buck restaurant was a nice surprise.... expected a "meat and 3" place but it has a very nice menu with healthy choices and friendly staff. Folks should know the nearest grocery store is in Groveland if you want snacks or drinks in the room. Refrigerator was a nice amenity. The drive to Yosemite was not bad and the difference in price for park hotels was significant.

Room seems was recently updated, modern finishes. Bed ok, not a foam top though. Clean, quiet, all you can hope for. Restaurant next door very convenient and super friendly staff, great service, good food. Big breakfast for a busy day and dinner in the evening. Did not use the pool. Nice modern TV, remote doesn't really work since the satellite box is hidden behind tv, so have to stand directly under tv for it to work. But wasn't that big of a deal. We were so tired from our exploring that we just fell asleep early. I would recommend this hotel. Easy access to Yosemite.

We stayed at this place for its close proximity to Yosemite. It’s located fairly isolated but with access to a cafe adjacent to the hotel. It has a surprisingly clean and nice swimming pool and playground. Staff were friendly. Room is clean and updated, too! The USB ports for charging devices definitely came handy.

Someone really loves this property, it is sparkling clean and comfortable! The rooms are modern, and equipped with a microwave and fridge. The pool and hottub were clean and refereshing. I loved the lounge chairs, kids play set, and cornhole game area. 10/10 would recommend and were well rested each evening for hiking. The Lucky Buck cafe was incredible with fresh and huge portions and is located right next door. Don't miss out on the homemade apple pie!
