We had a Emotional Support dog and wanted to call them to see if it was appropriate. We called 10 times. No response. This was 24 hours in advanced to our stay. That evening, it was heavily raining and the road was closed. We couldn't get there. We wanted another day credited to us and they refused only via email....

The property is right next to the highway so there is limited, not onerous noise. The view out of my room was wonderful: Lake Mono. The room was a little small and old, but well-maintained and clean. The wi-fi was okay. Parking was adequate but tight in their lot.

Nice room with distant views of lake. Clean with comfortable and good value. A number of eating places short walk. We planned to go to Yosemite following day but due to an early storm the pass was closed due to snow. I am sure many visitors have same plans but to be fair motel do mention this. If pass is...

We ended up randomly at this Motel since the roads were closed because of snow and ice and we were stuck in Lee Vining. The place is not bad. The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. The receptionist surprised us a bit though. Maybe she just had a bad day but seriously, a tiny smile when people come into...

The woman who runs the place was very nice and welcoming. The room was clean, beds were comfortable. The bathroom was in a bit of disrepair as the bathroom heater and vent didn't seem to be working tile rolling up on the edges a bit. Easy to find, no issue with parking though the lot was almost full. First night...

Three old guys on a road trip. Surprise, no doubling up - 3 queen size beds, 2 in room A, and 1 in adjacent room X (2 connecting doors and a big step up). All slept well, followed by a good shower in the morning.

Hmmmm...it pains me to write a negative review and I really was torn between a poor v. average rating. I decided to go with a "poor" because the combination of price, ambiance, and customer service made that the honest way to go for my experience. First off, if you aren't familiar with this location, please be aware that your lodging...

Overpriced. Needs renovating as everything is dated and worn out. Not clean. Very thin walls, next to busy road, small and cramped. Unfriendly person checked us in - very frosty. Took money out if account as soon as we booked. Only good thing is the view. Would not recommend.

Stayed for a night, to our Surprise the hotel location is apt for Sunrise view and the management as well have taken care to provide with good infra to enjoy the view. Well kept rooms, has good outlook and overall good one for the price and the location.

We stayed here for one night which was lucky us! The motel is run down and the ruling in the bathroom is extremely poor. The plaster and cracks in the bedroom is poor and looks really unkempt. The walls are paper thin and the road noise could be heard as well as people talking next door. If anyone walked on...
