Room was well lit, comfortable, great view( one wall nearly all glass), nicely furnished . Very happy with room. Comfortable temperature
Bottom of shower curtain musty. Otherwise very clean
Incredible location so close to Yosemite Falls and we could see half dome from our back deck! The room was rustic, which was perfect for the location, and very clean.
A little pricey, but so worth the location!
It's not very sound-proof. Every sound from the rooms around me (top and sides) was heard, making it hard to sleep or relax while in the room. Every morning I was woken up by screaming children at 6am or kept awake by loud, booming voices at night.
Amazing location, really nice facilities, very cute and quaint
Nothing, was perfect.
