"I highly recommend it to any hiker on the JMT"

"My brother and I stayed here for two nights on our hike of the John Muir Trail. It was a super experience. … The motel caters to backpackers with specialty services like a shuttle to/from the nearby (Onion Valley) trailhead, laundry and food resupply. I highly recommend it to any through hiker passing by on the JMT. Even for non-hikers, the motel offers great accommodations, a friendly, family-like atmosphere and highly competent and efficient staff. I especially liked the motel's breakfast, served at a family-style table and loaded with great conversation and stories about the wilderness! Finally, the scenery in back of the motel is not to be believed. A range of 14,000-foot peaks (highlighted by the eponymous Mount Williamson) sits just a few miles away, extending north-south as far as the eye can see.
