Fodor's Review

Two miles outside Yosemite's Arch Rock entrance, this modern property is the most convenient place to spend the night if you are unable to secure lodgings in the valley. All rooms have good views, but the ones with balconies that overlook the Merced River are the best. You have your choice of four pools here, one of which is indoors. The restaurant cooks up an impressive breakfast buffet, and there are both a restaurant and a pizza joint on-site (the latter open only from April through October). Many of the rooms, however, come with kitchenettes.
