At $191/night, this was below average. I understand it was a last minute booking and close to yosemite, but for what they offer you still can’t justify the price. Parking is tight. However i will say the owners are very nice and the grounds with the river and fountains tables/chairs set up nearby are beautiful. It’s 20 minutes to big flat oaks entrance to yosemite park and a total of 1 hr drive to yosemite valley, where all the major sights are. Its also very close to hetch hetchy entrance. Also be sure if you’re going before end of Sept you get a peak hours reservation at to enter into yosemite otherwise you cannot enter between 6am-4pm unless you have lodging/campgrounds booked within the park itself. We had a room with two double beds. Pretty much NO toiletries. You have hand soap&dish soap then 2 PACKETS of a combo shampoo/conditioner and 2 PACKETS of body lotion. No body gel/bar soap for shower. Room was decently clean at least it did have A/C and there’s wifi….but room had thick carpet and quilt like bedding….looks like you’re in your grandmas apartment. A couple chairs that were worn. No fridge or microwave. There’s a common fridge OUTSIDE sitting next to the building…. Like the one you would find in your house lol. It was FULL of food so no room. The bathroom was huge, yet the shower is TINY, standing shower can barley fit 1 person. Towels had stains. Overall good enough for last minute booking but wouldn’t recommend for the $,try elsewhere

The property is right by the river. From the glider outside our door, we could see and hear the river--or we could walk down the the bank and sit in the Adirondack chairs situated there. The setting was wooded and quiet, inviting a peaceful, serene visit.

The Yosemite Riverside Inn was picturesque, and very pleasant. It was close to the branch of the local river, had air conditioning that was a lifesaver in 97 degree heat, and provided silverware and dishes so that we could easily snack while in the room. Everything was very nice, plus some adorable dogs to pet while we walked around! :)
