Most of the hotels in Clovis are located along Mabry Drive(highway 60/84). The Hampton Inn is technically the closest at 2 long blocks away, but all of the others are close also.

The hours are 9:30 to 3:30 and closed on Monday. Everyone must be out of the park (zoo) by 5:00. There may some adjustment of hours for summer months. JT
