“Worst bed ever!”
Reviewed 5 October 2011

I made reservations to stay at Yosemite Pines based on places to stay near Yosemite that accepted dogs. Check in time was at 3:00 and we arrived a little after 6 to find EVERYTHING closed down. There was a map posted with our cabin (Premium) number on the door of the general store. We arrived to a lovely cabin, impeccably clean, but there was no information available at all as to how to turn on the heat, who to call in case there were problems, check out time, etc. We were 3 adults, so I was left to the pull out sofa. This sofa bed was the worst bed I have ever slept in any where in the world. My dog bed would have been better. I had to place the mattress on the floor because the frame of the sofa bed itself was wobbly and bent. The mattress springs were popping up all over the place & it was terrible! The TV in the living room sometimes worked and, even though we put on the heat, there was none (and it got chilly last night). It looks like it's probably a good place to stay with kids or if you're camping. The property is nice & the cabins are very well maintained. It was a pretty expensive night at $200, considering the Best Western a little further down offered a full breakfast, took dogs and was about $100 less.

The site itself is very nice, probably one of the nicest layouts that we stayed in. The owners have clearly made an effort on some stuff, for example petting zoo, hay rides, kids films etc but then the pool was just so disgusting, it was a germ soup. The whole family ended up with itchy eyes and the kids ended up on antibiotic drops. Another frustration was that the pool and shop closed officially at 8pm but because the site wasn't busy and apparently takings were down in the shop without warning they decided to start closing at 7pm

Overall position was good, approximately 1hr 15 from the valley

The park is in a beautiful setting and a short drive to the national park. Nice folks and the petting zoo is fun, especially early in the morning during feeding time.

We enjoyed Groveland. We visited the museum, Iron Door tavern and came back in the evening to attend a community theater performance.

All the facilities were clean and well-maintained.

We camped in a motorhome, on the way home from Arizona.

Very nice resort. Clean, modern cabin. Very comfortable. Staff was very nice. This is one of the closest spots to stay outside of Yosemite, but even so, it was a good 90 minutes to the valley floor. This is a great place to stay if you are coming in or leaving the park, but a little too far to use as a spot to drive in and out of the park every day. Still, very nice resort and close to the center of Groveland.
