Location, room size, view from the balcony.
Price, self-catering facilities.
Restaurant wait time after seated was long just for attention & then very long to receive the food. Price was too high for room, however may have been fair in all honesty because of the tourist location.
Location and spaciousness. Beds comfy
Grubby towels and kitchen equipment. All very tired and shabby decor. Booking stated balcony but we didn't get one
The stream behind our room!

Very much enjoyed stay at Yosemite View Lodge. Ideal place to stay when visiting Yosemite. Facilities excellent, breakfast excellent and dinner at night very good.
Great location! Nearest location to Yosemite without being in the park itself.
Rooms were a bit small but overall okay.
The comfortable rooms with spa bath
The on-site restaurant which cannot cope with the number of people straying at the hotel for both evening meal and breakfast. The management claimed it was operated by a separate company and they did not want to know
The location is excellent. The staff was helpful fixing things that were broken in the room but there was simply too many for them to handle.
The facility is run down and there were numerous broken items in the room (bathroom light, fan, drain, furniture, cabinets, shower wouldn't shut off, etc.)
Love that is close to Yosemite. Large rooms w/kitchenette. Love rooms w/ River view and Jacuzzi. Pizzas and salad are good as is restaurant.
Bathroom faucet was almost impossible to turn on and off. This hadn't happened before in other rooms. One of our rooms had NO hot water one evening and next morning.
Great location,good layout.. Lovely pizzas!
Rooms dated. Ants in kitchen area. Disorganised take away. It was very busy & as nowhere else to eat most guests eating at hotel at take away which wasn't big enough to handle the volumes. It's a shame because the hotel had a great location & with a but of money & organisation they could have an excellent hotel.
Dated facilities and charging for internet services
Good for travel to Yosemite Valley
A convenient place to set off too visit the Park
That when we booked we were not told that payment was only taken for the first night...bit of a surprise having to pay again when booking out.
the location was lovely --on the river and right outside Yosemite Park. The pool facilities and access to a convenience market and good restaurant were great.
The room was poorly appointed for the extremely high price. For 360 per night, I would have expected nicer accommodations. The cleaning staff did not provide basics like creamer and sugar. flimsy plastic cups. Best Western hotel style for very high prices. Paying for location.
location restaurant near the river
Closeness to the park. Nice rooms, just way, way overpriced because you are close to the park. Love listening to the Merced River from our room. Nice clean rooms. Closeness of pool to the rooms. Lots of choices. I've been staying at your Lodge for over a decade.
Lighting outside was very poor. Walking to the restaurants at night with little or no lights. Trying to ignore looking at your front desk employee with no teeth. I feel bad, but very difficult view as the first contact with your lodge. Kitchen lacked a paring knife.
Room and the location. Kitchen was an added bonus.
Room was a decent size and had a kitchen with fridge.
Cleanliness could have been better - the carpet was dirty and the sheets were stained. In the restaurant a mouse ran out in front of us. The staff did not seem that surprised to be told about it. They have a monopoly on food at the site and on the evening we were there the pizza restaurant was closed, causing chaos in the main restaurant.
Proximity to Yosemite entrance
Blood on the sheets
After the complaint they gave us a first rate room with working air an the room was clean an bright
First room was dirty, outside temp was over 100 deg's and the air condition system was broke, no air, dirty silverware in drawer, bathroom was not cleaned! Dirt on floor, then I complained
Stayed here for 2 nights with our teenage sons in between Death Valley and Monterey. Had read some negative reviews beforehand but had a positive experience. Wasn't anything luxurious but was clean, comfy and suited our needs perfectly. Great access for the park. Pizza Restaurant served very tasty pizza although seating area pretty average. Meal in the Restaurant very nice with rustic decor.
