The gentleman at the front desk was very nice, as well as the gentleman I briefly spoke with in the morning. They were kind people who were very helpful when asked about grub and Yosemite.
The price was pretty decent per night. We had a mountain view room, which essentially means you have this window that just faces the highway 41 and the mountains across it. I thought it might face Yosemite, but I realize Yosemite is a bit further away than that and not really within eyeshot!
Parking wasn't a problem. Our room was on the 4th floor. We were instructed to park behind the hotel and up a hill, so you can basically walk out of your 4th floor room and right to your car. Very convenient!
It's about an hour and a half drive to Yosemite. The drive can be windy and has a few steep dropoffs on the side, but as long as you don't think about it you'll be fine!
Breakfast in the morning is mainly cereal and toast. Toasted raisin bread with butter was enough to keep me happy! Though some protein would be good, especially if we plan to hike that day.
My only complaint is that the room was a bit chilly. I wonder if you could request another blanket from the front desk. Or maybe we needed to play around with the heater or something. In any case, brrrr.
