We were passing through and have stayed here before, and this motel the job: clean, quiet rooms with parking outside your door. Not fancy by any means, but for the price you can't beat it! Location is great--a block or so from Main St!

Comfortable and clean. Enough hot water for showers in the morning and night for both me and my partner. Would recommend! Great place for climbers to escape from the cold while still being relatively cheap.

We stay here several times a year. We love the location. Our car is parked right in front of our window which is great. We book a double room for comfort. It is so quiet we usually sleep longer than we should.. and wifi no charge. Very pleased. Great staff! JanM

Very simple room, clean, car easely parked close to the room. It is possible to walk in the town from the hotel to find place for dinner. Many activities to do around : rock art, climbing, skying at Mammoth lakes, trecking and fishing. The Keough's Hot Springs near the town are also very pleasant. Very hot and very vintage. Go...

This motel is very basic. It is reasonably priced and the bed was comfortable. However, it did smell a bit old. Our room only had a shower, no bathtub. The continental breakfast had very limited choices all of which were unhealthy.

Very outdated room & it didn't feel clean. Duct tape on floor for transition between carpet & tile. Online it looks much better than in real life. Free breakfast was very basic; coffee was terrible. Free wi-fi was nice. Location is convenient.

I chose Elms Motel because it looked like it might be quieter and more personal than the multi-room building style hotels in the area. The manager doesn't smile or greet you in any way. It seems that each guest is more of a bother than a welcome guest, which made me feel uncomfortable. Amenities are just enough to sleep. No...

Small clean room abutting town park. Quiet street but centrally located to walk to shops and restaurants. Comfortable bed. Very friendly, family run hotel. (wonderful smell of Indian food when checking in from their home!) We stayed one night after hiking the John Muir trail and it accommodated repacking to fly home and a hot shower.

Amenities are limited, but include a fish cleaning station. The rooms have no refrigerator. Cable TV and free Wi-Fi are provided. The prices are competitive with other...

Motel interior is old and worn. Therefore a little dusty. But after long drive heading to Yosemite, all we needed was a good night sleep. Price is reasonable, with breakfast in morning. In general room is basic, but good enough. Friendly place.

Thank Lian A
