Apple Blossom Inn Yosemite

Apple Blossom Inn Yosemite


I WARN YOU! Don't ever sleep at this place. The lady called ''Candy'' isn't so sweet as her name is saying. We called before c'oclock in the evening the day that we would arrive. To tell her that we would arrive between 9 and 9:30. Candy informed us that it was not a problem at all. Because her B&B is located in the middle of nowhere and there were no signs at all we had a hard time finding it. We arrived 9:45 that evening. (15 minutes later!) There was no one there and she left a note that we had to call her. When I called her she was REALLY mad and she was extremely rude. Calling us things and saying that we did what we wanted to make her awake. She hang up in my ear. 3 minutes later I hear someone curing loudly and out of a sudden she was standing right in front of us. She was MAD and looked very aggresive towards us and while she was speaking to us she was shouting like we were sort of animals. Me and my boyfriend were honestly afraid of her. Finally she left. And we only slept for 3 hours because we were so afraid and felt so uncomfortable. The next morning Candy was nowhere to be found. No apologies. Nothing at all! We went to Yosemite Park and were there for only 3,5 hours because we had no energy to do hikes and felt really bad about the whole situation. When we headed home to the B&B Candy didn't even make up the bed or anything. I gave her a call to talk about the situation and she find it strange that we decided to go to another B&B. Later she hang up AGAIN in my ear for the second time. Don't go to this place. She ruined the last part of our holiday and we will never get this experience back of Yosemite.
We had an unbelievably abusive stay at this so-called B&B last summer. My sister-in-law submitted a detailed and accurate review of our stay. Her honest account was inexplicably filtered into Yelp's "not recommended reviews". Her review ("Diana B) is still posted in the filtered reviews and is well worth the read. The Innkeeper of this B&B ("Candy") defies Yelp rules and solicits good reviews by holding an ongoing "review contest". She hands out cards promising rewards for good reviews and reminds guests of this verbally. We have posted a photo of her offer in the pics. This would account for her numerous 5 star reviews. What contest would reward an honest 3,2 or 1 star review? Her contest card speaks volumes. Breakfasts were sporadic. Candy only bothered to cook on mornings of full occupancy. She's running a B&B. Time to actually include a daily fresh breakfast. We were paying for it. Her cookies are store bought from Vons. We watched her cut their package open. Our morning coffee was simply reheated in the microwave. Candy complained throughout our 6 night stay that she hadn't "had a day off in four months!" I stayed behind one day to complete work online. Candy was just hanging out at her own house most of that day---popping in once in a while to just toss linens into the dryer. This is a one woman show. There is no housekeeper and our two rooms and bathroom were on the dingy side of clean. She lectured our girls to reuse their same one towel each throughout our one week stay. She did so sternly and loudly so as to give the adults the same message. We should have taken the hint when Candy launched into detailed complaint filled stories about her previous guests. I stood right behind Diana as we checked out on our final morning. I hereby corroborate every word Diana wrote. Candy informed us that we had enjoyed "an amazing stay!" She then challenged us to "tell me even one thing that wasn't amazing!" As my sister-in-law softly recanted numerous aspects that fell short Candy screamed at her saying (and I kid you not) "You're a F-in B!" She screamed the full words not just cutesy abbreviations. I actually worried Candy would stab us as we left. Candy refused to give us any ------- Wow. I just read Candy's deceitful response to our reviews. Oh yes, having both worked for years in hotels and restaurants we were very kind to her throughout our stay. She never ran a credit card of mine at all. My sister-in-law (who wrote the other very honest review on here) paid for the entirety of our stay. Neither of our cards were ever denied. We did though, discuss between ourselves how Candy could improve her B&B. Rather than soliciting fake reviews via the review "contest" she promotes on the card we've photoed and uploaded here and rather than generate fake five star reviews for her we believed it better to be honest with her. In a kind tone we suggested she hire someone to help her clean the units, cook and help her do the many jobs needed in running an inn. Even just someone part-time. She exploded. Started screaming at us both an called my sister-in-law an "fuc-ing bi--ch" right in front of our daughter's. We have posted multiple photos that substantiate every word here. Including our credit card receipt. Sadly, this woman who disparaged her other clients and boasted of a plan to cut her own sister out of their mother's will...stoops to no level of lies to paint the picture she wants. Our photos speak volumes. Finally, within the not recommended reviews of this property please note the one from "Mary" who was apparently accosted by this odd woman in town.

Yosemite Phenomenon!
This is beautiful.
Fascinating story!
I have never seen a creek come to a complete stop like this before and start up again someplace else. It's like a lava flow.
