Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Charlotte Groveland
Unpretentious, 5 star cuisine & European style
A little bit of European B&B style right outside Yosemite! Love it! The common spaces: upstairs porch overlooking Main Street, and the 'family room', complete with computer, piano & comfy furniture, are great for getting that homey feeling away from home and meeting some people you wouldn't meet at impersonal hotels & motels. And the food! I'm still thinking about Victor's special dinner dishes, as well as the morning pancakes!
Lots to do nearby. I'll be back for a raft trip!
Reasonably priced for Yosemite area, but some problems
The hotel is casual and comfortable, and located within walking distance of several restaurant, although all close early. They also offer free internet access and a tv room full of games and puzzles. There is a second story front porch facing on to the street, but it was furnished with old outdoor furniture and benches, and littered with full ashtrays, so it wasn't very inviting. Our room was extremly small, but sunny. It was decorated with antiques, and the sheets were nice. Our bathroom was fairly sizeable but the door to it didn't shut all the way, and it was not very clean. Breakfast, which includes cereal, bread for toasting, juice, coffee and pancakes (which were not fully cooked during our stay), is fair. The staff, though generally available, seemed uninterested in dealing with guests.
What a gem
The Hotel Charolette is a gem. The 3 of us women, part of the "Extravaganzas", shared a comfortable room downstairs.
It was a great respite before and after our full day off rafting the Tuolumne River. My favorite part, besides the humor and good care we received from owner Lynn, was sitting upstairs on the veranda, sipping a beverage and watching the world go by. I can't wait to visit again and don a straw hat for an evening in Groveland.
Crab Cakes & Bob
In May 2004, our daughter married a local, and my wife and I and another family member, spent 5 days, at "The Charlotte." The hosts, Lynn & Victor let us into their lives, and even awarded me the prized position of honorary quadruped. The call him "Bob, the Hotel Dog, but he and I both know that he is human. He and I kissed each morning, and discussed the previous day's activities. Lynn, Victor, are consummate hosts; they let you, the guest, define the relationship. They (including Bob) are never intrusive, but answer your every need. Victor is an excellent chef. With som reservation, I ordered Crab Cakes one evening. In wandering the globe, I have never eaten finer Crab Cakes. The best hotel experience of my 74 years.
The Hotel Charlotte is the friendliest place we have ever stayed.
Dinner rated up there with the finest French Chefs. I had the blackend salmon with cucumber salsa and it was out of this world! My wife had a delicious veal imperial. Our room was small, but warm and bright, just right. Our bathroom on the other hand was very large. Highly recommend.
The Hotel Charlotte was a terrific find on our way to Yosemite. Much cheaper than the Groveland hotel, the Charlotte has clean, comfortable rooms and a delicious breakfast included in the rate. The restaurant is out of this world!
This was our 2nd time at the Hotel Charlotte in 5 years. The hotel is under new management, and it looks and feels like a new place. The management is friendly, the rooms are clean, and the restaurant next to it is terrific. It's a great buy for the money! D & D
A small hotel managed by owner, the Charlotte has very small rooms and is not well maintained. The continental breakfast is good, though. The bathtubs may have a charming old-fashioned look but they're not convenient for seniors.
Cute and Convenient
The hotel Charlotte broke our trip up nicely when we were going to Yosemite. We got to Groveland at noon, then spent the rest of the day in Groveland, and got into Yosemite the next morning by 8:00 after a quick breakfast at the hotel. Rooms are simple and clean. Ruth was very pleasant.

... lovely looking spot with a reasonable waterfall and overhanging rocks ideal for jumping off. They were really high, but after watching some guys jumping off I decided to give it a go. Not being too comfortable with heights it was quite a challenge for me to get out there on the ledge and jump in...but I did it! The girls then wanted to try it so up we all went and, whilst Annick took photos from below, they bravely climbed out to the end and with a whoop they both jumped in, one ...
... His use of light and shade to capture the ethereal beauty of the park is astounding. We were tempted to buy a print, to remind us of our incredible time here, but with originals selling for $30,000 un framed and prints retailing at $200 un framed, we decided to become our own Ansells and frame prints of our own photography of the scenery.
We returned to Curry Village, and once again found a sot on the old veranda with a few glasses of wine. We were joined by a Swiss couple, ...
Thursday night - we arrived for our quick stop over in the small town of Lone Pine, California at the Dow Villa Motel. The kids went to sleep, I worked on my blog and Adam was on the phone with Alamo rental car company till 2:00 in the morning. The car was doing something funny when we made sharp turns (or U turns) and we needed to get to Yosemite for Shabbat. We woke up by 7am to call them back so that they can send us a new car. Nothing was working out in that regard. Finally, ...
... up in Tuolumne after we climbed Lost Arrow Spire. Regardless, wanting to make our meet-up time, Michael trudged in the 7 or so miles to the rim, often times running. He was still panting.

... was quite surreal. It was exactly like Sequoia Lodge Hotel at Disneyland Paris, which is of course themed around national parks like Yosemite and hotels exactly like Tenaya Lodge. Even some of the architecture was the same. Of course, Disneyland’s Sequoia Lodge is simply theming – this is the real thing!
We ate in the lovely, Western-style Jackalopes restaurant and all had pretty lush burgers with bacon and mushrooms. Service was excellent. Lucy ...
