We've stayed at another hotel in Mariposa last year and this hotel is FAR Superior. We were very impressed by the staff, the hotel was fully booked, but the rooms were comfortable and quiet. The complementary breakfast is worth the money alone: hot eggs and bacon, make you're own waffles, fresh fruit, and TONS of pastries. A lot of local shops are just a walk away. If you're wanting to go to the "downtown" area, you're going to want to drive down. I couldn't find anything that we didn't like. The thing I can see people might not like is the "age" of the rooms and furniture, but you're nitpicking, in my opinion.
good value no time for breakfast
The staff was upbeat, informative and fun to interact with. The free breakfast was great with lots of selections and good hot food. The Miners Restaurant across the parking lot was very good as well. Full menu with salad bar and quality made-to-order entrees.
Restaurant was very nice for a small town and extremely friendly waitress. Air conditioner in the room did not work at check in. When I told them about it they jumped right on it and got it fixed right away, great job.
We paid extra for an in-room spa that did not work and I am still trying to get a refund.

good stop over before Yosemite. Very clean and the people are very nice.
Location. Size of the room. Walk in shower. My overall experience was affected primarily by the noisy tenants above! It wasn't the room itself. Very impressed. Our unfortunate experience was upstairs noisy neighbors up most of the night. I was awakened several times!
There was nothing we did not like. We enjoyed our stay.
right downtown in walking distance to everything
Location from town. Would not like some of the front rooms, we were in the back.

Had a Bed and breakfast feel but still had the privacy of a hotel room. Walking distance to great food and quaint shops. It was still about an hour drive to Yosemite but the nicest on the outskirtsz
Clean, well maintained, friendly staff, continental breakfast well done, and multiple restaurants and cute stores within a few blocks walking distance.
Nasty carpet. Bad products. Bad breakfast. Not worth the money
Close to Yosemite, bed was comfortable. Too expensive and the carpet needs to be replaced.
Tidy overall. polyester bedding is not very comfortable. Hotel has good amenities just not high quality ones. Water pressure was not good. Breakfast was sufficient but definitely not exceptional. Reasonable price. Plenty of family friendly amenities. Clean. Tolerable driving distance to Yosemite Valley. Free breakfast.
The hotel is located at the end of Mariposa and within walking distance from shops and restaurants. The hotel staff was fantastic. The ladies at the front desk were friendly and helpful when needed. At breakfast, although the room was packed, the crew kept the place clean and well stocked. Will stay again and recommend to others.
The check in staff was great, the lady who oversees the breakfast was amazing..... So super helpful!!! I would go back and stay again!!!! Hot tub was closed becuase of winter : (
Reasonably close to yosemite The room reeked of fresh paint fumes. It appeared that the hotel was managed / owned by a couple. The man was accommodating enough, but the woman was incredibly rude when I asked for an extra towel.
The staff was very nice and helpful. Located right in the heart of Mariposa so you can walk to shops and restaurants. Bed was very comfortable. It was a little pricey for room, but to be fair it was July.
A nice clean hotel. Great location, great value for the money.
Walkable distance to restaurants and shops. Not too far from Yosemite. Room was clean. Owner was nice and helpful. Smell of curry everywhere is a restaurant. Room was right next to the lobby and the elevator. Kinda noisy. When we asked for another room, we were taold all the other rooms were dirty. Windows were facing the sidewalk. Vending machines are not working, had to ask the owner for assistance. Didn't have a microwave in the room, although it was supposed to be there.
Location, towels and bed. Overpriced for what it is.
Awesom little motel in the heart of Yosemite Country. Accross the street from dining, (some expensive, but worth it). Clean, comfortable and CHEAP rooms in a beautiful setting compared to most regular motels.Ask for the corner room in the courtyard by the gazebo, especially if you have a dog with you. Burger King and mini mart a block away, 30 minutes from Yosemite entrance.
The Queen size bed was too hard. Otherwise everything else was satisfactory.
Great place to stay, very close to Park. Staff was very helpful and friendly, as they guided us to Happy burger. would recommend this place to anyone headed to Yosemite.
Mariposa is a delightful, small community in the wooded foothills of the Sierras. The hotel is middle aged but clean and really quite pleasant. While the rooms exit into the parking area, the hotel consists of two courtyards, both of which are removed from the street and have trees and shrubs. It is a beautiful, 30 minute drive from the Yosemite Valley. We would definately stay there again.
Old hotel with lots of problems. It needs updating and renovation. TV really didnt work at all and when we told them, the front dest woman just smiled at us and said they were in the process of updating all of the TV's and this room would be at the top of the list. Well I guess we should have asked what that means cuz we never received a replacement. The plumbing is old and leaky and They forgot to stock our room with coffee one day and the building is so old and dilapidated that when the people next door walked in their room or shut their door, it sounded like a construction crew was demolishing the hotel! I suggest staying eslewhere. Most other hotels will respond to their guests needs better. The only good thing about this hotel is their proximity to Yosemite and that is still an hour drive to Yosemite valley. We wont be staying here again.
Comfortable, and simple accomodations. We were happy.
I know my title seems a little overboard, but I'll tell you why. The neighborhood, is soooo freaking cute and in this freaking cute neighborhood is an even cuter hotel with the smallest freaking pool imaginable, but its okay, because everything else is just so... FREAKIN' CUTE! Rooms were clean, front desk was nice, humming birds... doing humming bird things, everything was great.
The beds were great, just like they said. They lived up to my expectations. I had to book for work and would consider bringing my family here. The only concern is that the walls a thin and you might hear a little from the next room. I have a big truck and it's hard to park and this was easy for me.
Recommend this place to anyone. Cheaper than the chain motels in town and has really nice rooms.
Close to great places to eat. No need to drive around once their.
The lodge is perfect for a trip to Yosemite. Very clean and well kept. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Grounds are like a professional garden, rooms are very cozy & quiet. A great get-away or stop-over. town of Mariposa is very nice.'

Bed was great breakfast one of the best walk to everything in town Didn't have time to stay longer
Room was generally clean and in good shape. Complimentary breakfast was good and convenient.
The beds , cleanliness , breakfast I do not have any thing I did not like
Fantastic experience, great hosts, visiting deer every morning. mariposa was very nice area also.
Wow. This was our first B&B and we were wowed. Joy indeed lives up to her name and made sure that all the guests felt right at home. It showed as the guests mingled beautifully. Ah, to wake up to the sound of wild turkeys and incredible breakfasts. Hope to meet Clay next time.
Hotel Employee were phenomenal. The breakfasts were so delicious. And the room was quiet, clean, private. LOVED the quiet and birds on the back deck. We SO enjoyed this place!
This was such a wonderful experience that I must begin with the owner's comment when my wife and I arrived late after a very trying journey through the high Sierras. He said 'hello, you must be tired from your travels, let me show you to your room' I have travelled around the United States and have had the pleasure of staying in some very fine establishments but I never had anyone say that to me . The room was wonderfully appointed with way more than we could ever use, splendidly clean and famously comfortable and deliciously quiet. Then came breakfast, so wonderful with so many home made side dishes, fresh fruit, great company in their kitchen looking out the bay window to the Sierras that I could have remained there all day. At night we sat out on their expansive deck looking at the stars in our universe in the quiet, then we went to bed,then we hated to leave. I felt like I was leaving my own home . Don't wonder what this will be like, just enjoy it.
Can't believe how lucky I was to find and spend 3 days at Joy and Clay's lovely B&B, Yosemite Bed and Breakfast. Our room, The Sierra Room, was both private and well stocked. All the rooms have private entrances and bathrooms. The rooms are also air-conditioned, which is an important option when it really heats up. High speed internet, helps you keep in touch, if you'd like, ot the outside world. And, if you choose, you can watch satellite tv or a dvd, in your room. The grounds are well kept with plenty of seating options to enjoy the outdoors setting, including a Barbecue grill for evening cooking. I absolutely loved having my morning coffee outside while watching the little territorial humming birds zip around the feeders. The cottage has a full kitchen and a lovely view of the canyon below. The pool was a fun option for my sons for cooling off in the warm summer weather. Breakfasts were a full American style, delicious breakfast served on fine china. What a treat. You are about 40 minutes from Yosemite Nat'l Park and after spending a day in an , although lovely, yet tourist filled, park, I can't imagine a better place to rest-up for each new days adventure. It's obvious, once you've spent a night there, that ABC and XYZ have thought of everything that you'd need to feel welcome and relaxed at their B&B. Can't wait to come back. Even my 10 and 12 year old sons are wondering when we will come back again. Soon I hope.
The place is fantastic! Awsome, friendly people, out of the way, and quite. Its about 45 min. to inside the park, but very nice to get away from the business of the valley, at Yosmite.. Great morning breakfast too! this place goes great with the overall experience of the National Park. it s just beatiful!! they make you feel right at home. Thanks Joy and Clay, we hope to be back in the future!'
Love the wonderful breakfast. They also give me lots of helpful information and the snacks and bottle water really make me feel like stay at home.
Very good deal for the cost. Rooms generously large with multiple beds. Pool on premises. Breakfast included. Great location. Large screen TV with multiple channels. A/C. Staff were very helpful when I called to let them know I had left a pair of shoes behind. Nothing.
clean rooms,comfortable bed,parking close to rooms the lot is well lite at night.hotel is next to the 140 hwy that leeds into yosemiite park.the hotel is half the price as the hotels in the park,its well worth the extra beautiful drive. the continetial breakfast,not alot to choose from but it was the middle of the week with few rooms occupid then.
This is one of the most affordable hotels you can find for staying near Yosemite National Park. If you're headed into the valley, it's a 45-60 minute drive. The room was clean, the sheets and towels were fresh, and there was a good amount of floor space. It's directly across the street from a gas station and there is plenty of food options within walking distance. The staff were all very friendly. While not the greatest hotel, it's a convenient spot to drop your bags and take a shower at the end of a long day in the park. Unfortunately, there were some downsides. The refrigerator was unplugged upon arrival. The microwave was plugged in but didn't work. The alarm clock was broken. Using the tv required some very specific instruction as to how to turn it on. There was an $8 charge each day for the WiFi. There was a small new congregation of deceased insects in the sink each day. Again, not a place I'd want to spend a whole day in, but a fine place to sleep before heading out.
My husband and I stayed one night at this lovely little inn. We loved it - the room was comfortable and clean. It was right in the middle of this little town and we enjoyed walking around and exploring Mariposa. This may seem like a strange thing to mention, but the towels were extremely soft, which is rare in my experience with hotels/inns. When you're washing your face, it makes a difference to not feel a scratchy towel on your skin...little things go a long way. The women who run the inn were fantastic - super friendly and gave us great advice about visiting Yosemite. I would definitely stay here again. The shower was very snug, which wasn't a problem for me, but I could see that it might be a problem if I were older and/or required more room to maneuver. It didn't detract for my overall experience though.
The manager was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel was a good value for high season at Yosemite
prch and hot water The whole area was trashy and unkeptSinking feeling driving into the oroperty.. outside looked like a cabin, inside a cheap motel, furnishing and decor was from a motel, A space heater for warmth.
