We spent two nights there in September 2011. We liked the place very much. The best, the nice and friendly owner, who wakes up very early in the morning to bake fresh cakes. She was very kind to us. Good soap at the bathroom! :-) The AC was a bit noisy, so we switch it off during the night, but...

It is a shame that we arrived so late at the River Rock Inn - we underestimate the driving time. The person in charge (I am sorry I can't remember his name) had hanged the key for us so we can find them. So even-though we missed the checking time, we managed to get some rest for the remaining of...

We stayed here for two nights in May 2011. We used Mariposa as a base for visiting Yosemite national park which is a scenic hours drive away- there are hotel closer to the national park, but Mariposa itself was fun. The Inn itself is nice, if very basic- the member of staff at check in wasn't as clued up as...

We were told our A.C. unit was broke and they were trying to replace it. We went to dinner and came back it was done . But the room was 100 degrees! and the tiny...

We stayed here on the way out of our Yosemite trip in November. As this is obviously the low season there weren't many people. However, the owner was very friendly and the room was great. Loved the ambiance of this place. Recommended to stay the night before you head into Yosemite or the night after, as rates outside the park...

The owner Vicky Lorenzi is a terrible person. She treats her employees and customer horribly. I would not reccomend anyone go anywhere near her or her establishment. I forund a long hair in one of the cookies I ate. Also found hair in the soup. There was moldy fruit in her deli case, coffee was very watered down. DO NOT...

This place has an aging hippie feel to it. The room was cramped and stuffy. The staff tried to be helpful but the management could use some educating in customer relations. My son made the mistake of leaving a pair of ski goggles, which were found but took months of pleading to get them sent out. They never came. While...

This is a wonderful place to stay within close proximity of Yosemite. Mariposa is a cute little town with only a few restaurants etc. This is the best place to stay. The manager & employees are very nice, provide a wonderful breakfast & offer a great selection of deli foods throughout the day.

This was the one of the highlights of our vacation. The people were wonderful and went out of their way to make sure our stay was what we were looking for. We were close to Yosimite, and had a wonderful time there, and hope to go back again next year. The park is so Beautiful. We could have not asked...

We absolutely loved the river rock inn: so charming, cute and quiet and the people who work there are funny and very helpful. However, we're a young couple who are always in for some fun and the people who run the place are mostly our age (20-25) so it was perfect for us. But don't expect the cleanest or the...
