Little gem just outside Yosemite's North Park Entrance

4.4 on April 21, 2014

Stayed at the Groveland Hotel April 16-18, 2014 and it was PERFECT!! Just what we were looking for! Only 26 miles from the North entrance to Yosemite National Park and about 35-40 miles from Yosemite Valley! Staff was absolutely lovely, rooms so quaint and clean, bed SO comfortable, AND they allowed my dog for a reasonable fee (the place does NOT smell as if animals have been there at all)!!! Would definitely stay here again!!


Weekend getaway.

The inn keepers showed us around and told us all about Groveland hotel. Room was very nice and cozy as we also enjoyed the the included breakfasts. We will be back.


Great time near Yosemite

4.2 on February 03, 2014

We enjoyed our stay here and the staff went out of their way to take care of us and our dogs! The room was great and so was the food. Be aware that when they have Saturday night dinner shows the service may be slower than normal


Groveland's Treasure

5 on January 03, 2014

During the Rim Fire, the Groveland Hotel was my safe and secure island. Peggy Mosley remained attentive and friendly in spite of the recent family loss. 4 months later I returned to photograph the recovery and resilience of Groveland's citizens. My room, meals at the restaurant and bar and the congeniality of the staff once again served as a reward at the end of my day. I believe Groveland will rise again and I hope to return for the spring wildflower bloom. - Don Bartletti

Loved this place. Very small and quaint. Super personalized service. Low key, cool, and out of this world wine list--bought 4 bottles of a hard to find bordeaux to take home! For a quiet get away, this is the place!
