Great location, close to both Twain Harte and Pinecrest Lake. Nice clean property and very friendly staff. Rooms are perfect, everything you need, nice pool and spa also. I was towing a boat and they reserved a spot suitable for me. We loved our stay and will keep coming back. Great value as well!!
Nothing fancy, but it's charming, clean & convenient. The owner is very friendly, and is always accommodating (early or late check-ins). There's even a mini-refrigerator & microwave if you have leftovers from the nearby restaurants.
Nice little place to stay. The room was very clean and comfortable. I would stay there again.The management was super nice.The heater worked great. Plenty to do in the area. We stayed there because we were going to a concert at Black Oaks Casino
It was clean and the management was really nice but across the street is a really good coffee house. For the price it beat expectations and would definitely stay here again. Long barn is just up the road 3 miles with a ice-skating rink and then just 3 miles down at Twain Harte plenty of places to eat in a grocery store. Short distance to Dodge Ridge ski resort and Pinecrest.
We had to make alternate plans after fire in Yosemite closed the park. We stayed here for 2 nights. I can’t say enough nice things about the owner. He was so helpful and amenable. Room was ready early, he gave us helpful tips for every meal and things to do within an hour of the location. Don’t expect luxury, but the rooms were spotless, shower was fine and bed was comfortable. There is a swimming pool. We were there in July, but assume the location is also beautiful in the winter. Definitely check out Alisha’s bakery in Sugar Pines for takeaway breakfast. Loads of places in nearby Twain Harte for dinner.
We returned this year for a snow trip with our dog. It completely meets our needs with space & cleanliness. ( & dog friendly) The friendly owner is a hard worker who does a great job keeping it up. It is not 5 star luxury but it’s worthy of high marks- that’s why an excellent TripAdvisor rating... The snow was perfect this year. When we arrived Saturday morning, there was fresh snow & a blue sky. It started snowing again just before the 2 pm check in. It snowed most of the night. This morning we had fresh snow & sunshine again before heading back to Modesto. The beds were comfortable. The bedspreads were just fine & the towels were great. We enjoyed the coffee maker but we did not use the microwave or refrigerator. On this trip, we also enjoyed Zoe’s coffee shop across the street for breakfast & light lunch. …
My husband & I wanted to get away for a weekend so our dog could experience snow for the first time. We found the dog friendly Christmas tree inn online for a reasonable price. We were very impressed with the owner/ manager Tim. His pride of ownership really shows . What a nice guy! We felt like it could have been a B & B if breakfast were provided! He gave us perfect suggestions for dining. This is not a 5 star hotel but I'm giving it 5 stars because we were so pleased with the hospitality & setting. Our room was clean & spacious & met all of our needs. The towels were nice & the bed was comfortable. The small refrigerator & microwave was a nice addition. When we ran out of coffee packets, Tim gave us more. We look forward to returning to this beautiful area & to see our new friend Tim! …
Owner was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and spacious. A great value for an overnight stay in the area. Having had some bad experiences in the past with locally owned roadside inn's, I was very wary. This place, however, was well run, well maintained, and held no unpleasant surprises.
We were in Yosemite National Park and we needed a room for one night. We found the Christmas Tree Inn listed on Priceline outside the park. The listing said the inn had a rating of 8.8 out of 10 and there was one room left. The price was $115, but we were charged $119 plus $12 tax. I assumed the hotel would be quaint, but pleasant from the picture and review score. Quaint and pleasant no, beat yes. The bedspread is at least 30 years old with holes. The sink was cracked. Stains were on walls, lampshades, chairs and rugs. Cigarette burns on blankets. The furniture was in my college dorm during the last century.
Honestly, I was a bit worried when I booked this motel. It was not on my intended travel route, located in the mountains, in an area that doesn't seem to see lots of tourists, and is not operated by any chain. Who knows how bad could it be. It turned out to be one of my best motel experiences in US. The old gentleman at the front desk (maybe the owner?) was the kindest motel staff I have met. Without asking he told me how to reach my room, how to find the hot pool, and a few other things. The motel was pretty small, about 20 rooms only. But somehow it was managed more professionally than most motel chains. The room was not new or luxurious, but very clean, and has a pleasant smell that belongs to a hotel that costs twice as much. A number of information can be found in the room, including a regional tourist guide paper which I found interested, a TV channel guide which I believe every hotel and motel should have, but rarely seen, and wifi passwords. The room size was OK and they had everything l need - microwave, refrigerator, coffee machine, and hair dryer. The room size was just fine. And while it's located next to a highway like other motels, there's little traffic at night so it was pretty quiet. I didn't use the hot pool since it closed pretty early but it looked good. Actually the whole motel ground was maintained very well, they even managed to place multiple garbage bins around the area in case you suddenly want to throw something away. Being surround by pretty trees, you certainly won't call it a "resort" but it's almost as good as a motel can be. Usually in my review, I like to list a few things I don' like about it. But for this one, the only downside I can think of is there's no McDonald's within ten minutes drive, and who cares.…
