Pillows were hard Long drive to Curry Village
Appearance Room style flexibility, ie: shared bathroom, private cottage, etc Amazing lounge with house pianist and cocktail hour. Fabulous continental breakfast Great linens / robes for shared bathroom use Friendly staff (remembered my name!) Awesome decks Great seasonal decorations Warm rooms despite 5 degrees outside!
Poor breakfast. Cold dinning room
The place is awesome, houses of 18th Century are cool
Walls in between rooms are a little thin. Unfortunately the man in the room next to mine was a loud snorer which kept me up a bit.
Friendly and accommodating staff Warm and cozy feel Dinner in the restaurant was very good
We spent 4 nights at the Wawona including Christmas with our family of 6. The staff gave misinformation on a number of occasions, there were problems with our bill, the rooms were fairly clean but worn. The double bed was made up with a single sized top sheet so it didn't cover the sides of the bed. I pulled an extra blanket off the shelf to discover a large hole in it. Safety was also an issue. The paths to the different cottages were not lit at night. Although grit had been laid on the steep stairwells, the hand rails were covered with ice so not useable. I am well travelled and try to see the positives of any situation but given what they charge and the staff's attitude, I was deeply disappointed and would not stay there again.
The location - its Yosemite, one of the most beautiful places on the planet.
Plenty of character, comfortable rooms, brilliant staff, great location.
It's getting a little run down and food service needs to rethink their holiday set up. Need a bar area to wait for tables in evening. Sitting rooms fill up.
The historic building is beautiful and common spaces are wonderful. Everything is clean an comfortable.
WiFi, you need it. Not suitable just to have right down in one part of the hotel as phone signal in area is really bad or non-existent. Sometimes people really do need to have a comms connection. WiFi even in the part where I was broke for 2 days.
Location, old historical feel
had to queue for breakfast; the all inclusive breakfast was all too sweet, could have included a savoury item; restaurant menu quite expensive.
LOVED the building, so beautiful, in daylight and when lamp-lit by night; Very glad that the style of the building had been maintained rather than modernised; Peacefulness of the location; Staff - courteous, efficient, friendly, helpful.
Great old style setting. Ideal for touring yosemite vally. Great atmosphere.
Staff weren't very helpful at check in or when asking for information about hikes. To access shared bathrooms had to walk outside in the cold. Breakfast included didn't include any hot meals, hot meals were extra. Bedroom was very small and noisy. Could hear all the noise from the lobby.
Location and buildings. Building was picture perfect and only a short drive to Mariposa Grove for the redwood trees.
location atmosphere helpful staff
Stayed in Little White and could hear everything people in next room said. Not an issue for us but something to be aware of. Other buildings are newer and may have thicker walls.
Location was excellent, staff friendly, beautiful buildings and room. Comfy bed, delicious food. Shared bathroom and shower facilities were spotless.
Extremely limited wireless access. Unnecessarily so. Be aware some rooms are shared bathroom facilities. Which are spotless, just shared.
Like going back in time, charming and cozy. Great food. Piano and fun in the parlor downstairs is reminiscent of days gone by. I'll definitely go back.
If your daily activities will largely be in Yosemite Valley, then this isn't as ideally located as other places, but it is only a 20-30 car ride to the valley. Most rooms are shared bathroom situations, with the cottages having a little bit more competition for the facilities. The Annex seemed to have more resources. Not a dislike as we had no problem with the shared bathrooms (they were well stocked and very clean), but sometimes we had to make several attempts to take a shower. Wifi is only available in one section of the hotel, but the whole point of getting away is to disconnect a bit.
The hotel fits perfectly in to the scenery and does not pull you out of your park experience (it adds to it). Very close to Mariposa Grove. Food was very good. There is also a gas station and market a short walk away. Tennis, golf, and a pool (seasonal) all onsite. Cocktails in the lodge with a fire burning and live music can't be beat. We would definitely stay here again.
Loved the attempt to keep the place original. A real experience.
You could hear other guests in the other room though.
After a not-too-long drive from the bottom of Yosemete Valley, on a winding mountain road, you turn one more corner to be surprised with the ellegance and beauty of this place. We arrived there in the evening tired after long hike, and walked into an atmospheric world of historic interiors, life piano music, working fire place, very friendly stuff, delicious food etc. The room was very well eqiupped, with antique pieces. In the morning we discovered a picturesque surrounding, deck chairs scattered within huge pine trees - great experience
Rooms look out onto the walkway around the hotel with creaky floor boars, As the bathrooms are communal this means that people who need to use the bathroom during the night are creaking around outside your door! Rooms are small and basic. no aircon, no tea making no ensuite.
The position gives this hotel its advantage, but by normal standards there are some problems.
Very outdated. Hotel and room decor not for young couples. If you don't have a private bathroom, facilities are poor, not even a sink, shared bathroom is outside of room accommodation so can be very cold. WiFi spot is not in main building but in a completely separate building, ironically where the private bathroom users are. This facility seems to be catered for these people only. No TV in room or lounge. Rooms are not double glazed so you can hear everyone and everything. Breakfast was very poor unless you pay for the extras. Not really a place for young couples. With all this in mind, not very good value for money.
Ideal location. Shirt drive from the main attraction points, or failing that there is a shuttle.
Wawona Hotel provides a charming historic hotel for seeing the Mariposa Grove in southwest Yosemite. The rooms might be a shock for modern travelers, as they are small (typical for the era). Also the hotel was built before indoor plumbing was common so bathrooms are shared in an attached unit at the back of the building. We enjoyed the dining experience, the nightly piano playing and the views from our room.
Room was very dirty, old and tatty, very dusty. There's a difference between 'Old Colonial' and just plain old and tatty. We knew the bathroom would be 'shared', but we didn't expect to share it with 20+ rooms on the same floor!! If that had been highlighted on the website, then we would not have booked. We feel that in this regard the hotel is not representing itself accurately. We had dinner in the restaurant, it was cold and we had to send it back. We thought the menu was over-priced. Same comment about the hotel cost. We didn't use the night robes as they looked like they hadn't been laundered in a long time.
Relaxing atmosphere. Swimming pool was warm enough to swim in. Comfortable grounds to relax in.
there are no other restaurants nearby so our only option after 6pm when we arrived was the dinning room with the cheapest entree at 27$. The bathrooms are shared so when I had to use the restroom at 3am I had to bundle up and put shoes on to walk to the other side of the hotel.
It was nice to be staying in the park. The hotel has a cute rustic charm to it.
No a/c, but there was a fan in the room so that helped. It is an old building, so you expect it to be somewhat rustic.
It is everything one would expect, no surprises. Very nice stay. No issues. Very nice staff.
No a/c, shared bath.
Large porches, spacious grounds.
rooms are very old, I know it was an expensive location but 250.00 is kinda high for such an old Hotel. The couple next to us talked so loud you would think they were in our room with us.
Staff was great Breakfast was ok
No air conditioning in the room which made it a little hot.
The period nature of the hotel, we booked a room with shared facilities but the bathrooms and showers were very clean and also quite. We were happy not having an en suite next to the room. the room was small but was in keeping with its period features.
