We were passing thru the area and decided it was time to get off the road. We booked the hotel and found it easily. Check-in is at the convenience store in front of the motel property. The gentleman was very kind and directed us to our room. It was large with 2dbl beds and a twin, galley kitchen, dining table, full bath. It was dated but cozy. The town was small and had limited eating establishments so we hopped back in the car and drive 7 miles to the next town which had more options. This is a great place to fish and the hotel caters to that clientele. It is also in the middle of mountaineering heaven.

All you need for a comfortable overnight no frills
It's just a roadside motel. Great for a quick overnight on a long road trip. Rooms are spacious and they have refrigerator and microwave and a small kitchen/counter area and a small dining area in the room. They have AC and heat but both are very noisy. It's connected to a convenience store and a gas station but it's not to noisy outside.. Furnishing are old and worn but clean and well taken care of.. They a lovely 50s country diner steps away and a few other places to eat nearby. Great shower and sufficient bathroom. Lots of storage. I will return on my next road trip.

Good value the money.
This hotel, out in the middle of nowheresville, is perfectly fine. Quiet enough. The rooms are dated, old, not modern. Clean, you got the basics. I recommend. I would however like to note that along the route there, 395, which is really beautiful, the mountains and the lakes and whatnot, I noticed many hotels not listed on this website that looked like they had much more character. Little cabins on hillsides overlooking sparkling lakes. The town of Lee Vining in particular looked like a beautiful unique little town with interesting looking hotels and restaurants and stuff. Doing that drive again I would look for a hotel by driving through and inquiring in person the old fashioned way. P9

All in all, satisfactory. The room was clean and the establishment quiet and friendly. The rooms are a bit dated and maintenance details appear to be deferred
