“Excellent stay, relatively close to Yosemite”
Reviewed 14 September 2011

Everything you are expecting from the Courtyard hotels. Very pleasant reception desk, beautiful decor, Having a boarding pass printing station is a big plus also/computer access in the lobby.
Many food options very close by.
Room was very quiet and had very many electric outlets to charge our various phones, computers ect. Good lighting too.
It was about 2 hrs drive to Yosemite Park, what allowed us early and not crowded entrance to the park.
I would stay there again.

We stopped after a visit to Yosemite at an easy distance to SFO for our noon flights the next day. We arrived for a wine and cheese reception, picked up an assortment of national newspapers, then adjourned to our spacious room. The room was quiet (facing away from Interstate), modern and very new. We walked to a nearby restuarant for dinner. The hot breakfast buffet was sumptious and extensive - something for every taste. Front desk staff
were friendly, helpful and really on the ball. We would definitely return if we were anywhere
nearby.

Reviewed 20 August 2011

Stayed here for 3 nights when I went for my Yosemite trip, "paid" with points so it was dirt cheap (e.g. whatever you spend in the bar). National Park is about 1-1.5 hours drive away, so not perfect but there's really no other chain hotel (that I have points with) any closer. Hotel is places just next to a highway so if you're unlucky you might hear it (I got the room facing other way).

Room is spacious (probably typically for US), big bed, flat TV (few HD channels), bathroom is also big - although bathtub is very shallow (to stand in only), and there's this curtain preventing flooding. Why not glass, why, why? Curtains are so disgusting.
Free WiFi is available, although very slow. If you get 60 kb/s - you're really lucky.
There's a small fridge but too small for, say, a big bottle of water. No microwave in the room, there is one available in the lobby.

There's a bistro bar next to the reception, you can order some small food orders there (from soup to sandwiches to pizza, but don't expect steak or fish), also bottled beer and wine. Staff is friendly and nice. Prices? Well, it's a hotel. If you want to keep the price down, there's a restaurant on the corner, about 3-4 minutes walk.
Oh yeah, elevators are SLOW. Use the stairs.

Overall - not a bad hotel, but nothing special either. HD was nice (pity only ESPN and some news channels, not movie ones), WiFi was not so nice (way too slow). Location - good for my needs. Would stay again if I'd happen to be in the area.

Room Tip: ask for room facing opposite the highway

the hotel is new and clean and staff members are friendly and professional. however the location is too close to the nearby highway (closest point might be less then 100 yards), so the noise and vibration could be too much for some.

Room Tip: need a room away from the highway

Stayed here traveling from Yosemite to Big Sur. Hotel was nice but wondered about the area even though there were quiet a few hotels along the interstate right there together. Room was nice and front desk was friendly.
