The property is a 5 minute drive from the gate at Yosemite, which is excellent. The motel itself does exactly what it is suppose to do in providing you a place to relax after a day of exploring.

This hotel is about 2 miles from the west entrance into Yosemite. Great location and a very large property. It has a small market inside and an onsite restaurant and pizza joint that are both open. The property is right on the Merced river and if you get a river facing room, it's well worth it for the serenity of it. The staff is super nice, friendly, and helpful. The rooms were a bit dated, but clean and I think all of them have kitchenettes so we went shopping before heading to the hotel and had food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that made things easier to prepare for all day hiking in Yosemite Valley.

I liked the proximity to the park, and the hotel general store and restaurant were life savers, given that there were no other options in the vicinity.
