Good hotel but few amenities
Posted Dec 16, 2016
The hotel is pretty nice. It is on the main road into Yosemite and in the river canyon. It has a "cute" bear theme throughout that is fairly well done. The rooms are clean and the place is well maintained.
Internet and meals are NOT included in the price. It is in the river canyon, so there is no cell service. The charged internet is supposedly 1Mbit max and charged per device, so we didn't bother. Plan to be "off the grid" while you're here.
There are no other restaurants near by, so plan on eating some of your meals at the adjacent restaurant and bar.
The restaurant has among the most bland food I've experienced in years. For breakfast, think buttermilk pancakes with log cabin syrup or bacon, eggs and toast with whatever salt and pepper you put on it. Dinner at the bar was similarly generic.
We stayed in December, so can't comment on the pool or any outdoor aspects. The pool looked pretty nice.
The location is the reason to stay here, so plan on enjoying your time in Yosemite. It is one of the closer hotels to Yosemite, so enjoy the park.
