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.

... calcium carbonate towers or formations called Tufas and heavy concentration of salt in the lake. This was near a small town called Lee Vining at the turn-off for Yosemite.
Our drive into Yosemite was another spectacular drive with views at every turn even before we got into the Yosemite Valley. Arrived into Curry Village around 6pm and had a big meal at the Village restaurant before calling it a night.
... scenery at the many viewpoints along the way as we made our way along the pass and eventually down into the valley. Yosemite was certainly beautiful, but it was very crowded and busy which detracted a bit from the enjoyment. At the information center we also learnt that the majority of the falls, including the iconic Yosemite Falls, were dry, which was a bit disappointing. We had planned to hire bikes and cycle around the valley, but the girls decided that they had had enough ...
... causing mild whiplash to us both and send our heads perilously close to the windscreen. Fortunately, after a few "sorry"s we managed to make our way out of the steep streets of the city and onto the gleaming Bay Bridge, and out towards our final destination, Yosemite National Park.
Switching the car stereo to all-American radio, we were treated to country music as we navigated and negotiated the highways of California. It was not a particularly scenic drive initially, ...
... hours so we were left with very little option! I also then had to frantically find a hotel in Fresno close to the Ford Garage and after our very friendly tow truck driver Brad had dropped us at our 'Quality Inn' it was 9.00 pm (10 hours after we had set off) and we were well and truly shattered! Lily then informs us that she left her iPhone in the tow truck - cue, frantic phone call to her mobile in the hope that somebody would answer alas to no ...
... just fine with very little car action involved :-) Along the way we've woken up in; a dirty carpark, a regular campground by the sea, nestled between the beach and the train line, in a desert and in a beautiful RV resort amongst red landscapes. The variety is pretty awesome! Highlights from this leg are: Mariposa Gold Mining Museum - quaint little old style museum about the gold mining days. Monterey Aquarium - a brilliant place for everyone ...
