Think vistas. This is the only motel on the east side of the highway, and the views from some of the rooms are phenomenal. Its somewhat tired rooms have comfortable beds with thick duvets and big bathrooms.

Important information

Please note: Property cancellation policy remains the same in the event of extreme weather, Yosemite Park road closures, fires, rock slides, or other unforeseen events as long as there are roads that provide access to our motel.

When the Tioga Pass Road is closed, it is not possible to drive to Tuolumne Meadows or enter Yosemite National Park from the east. All other park entrances, including those along Highway 120 from the west, Highway 140, and Highway 41, remain open all year. Guests are required to show a photo identification and credit card upon check-in. Please note that all Special Requests are subject to availability and additional charges may apply.
