Dirty towels. Dirty bloodstained bedspread
Location, close to Yosemite
Old, dumpy hotel. Needs a serious upgrade.
We were traveling as a family with 3 children and the room was roomy and appropriate to our needs. Parking is free and available close to the rooms. our room was faced to the river and the landscape is beautiful.
The room are not that modern.
This hotel exceeded our expectations. We had a lovely large room with a balcony looking out over the river running by. ( request this if you can when booking) we also had a hot tub bath in the bedroom - not expecting that !! Restaurant was ok and take away pizzas were very nice ... But best to be prepared with your own food for breakfast and picnic for your visit to the park. ( we used the remains if the pizza we couldn't eat the night before! ) quite expensive but it is one if the few hotels near to the entrance of the national park .... Would stay there again.
The location close to Yosemite National Park was very helpful and the rooms were spacious. It was nice to have kitchenette facilities.
The beds were hard and the pillows were awful, hard and flat old foam. Our bathroom door would not open or close properly because it scraped along the carpet. Also there were mouse droppings along our balcony rail. For over $200 a night, I expected considered much better.
Furnishings were dated and worn
Good location great rooms river view.clean and comfortable.
Kitchen utensils and kitchen, pricey wifi.
Great location, just outside Yosemite gate. Great view from room onto river, mountain, rocks restaurant on premises worth the money parking right outside rooms
waiters in restaurant could use some training mattresses need to be replaced, pretty soft
The Lodge is located about 2 miles from the entrance. You still need to drive about 15 miles (at 35) to get to Yosemite Valley. The room was ok, not great. I guess I was expecting a lot more for the $ ( I paid $230). There are 2 restaurants on the grounds. One is Pizza the other a little of everything. We didnt try the pizza but the restaurant was really good, but REALLY expensive!
The rooms are very outdated, which is fine. After the first night, I didnt care anymore because we were so tired from hiking all day. It started to take on a more rustic feel. The beds are hard, the towels are too!There is no internet. I had to pay $25 for internet access for 3 days from an outside party. There is no cell service. Not that this is the fault of the hotel, youre in Yosemite! Also, gas up at the gas station a mile down the road in El Portal! There are no gas stations in Yosemite.
Location at the entrance to the park......
Cost; age of the facility...
Our room had a river view which was lovely. We had a night visitor on our balcony (a ring-tailed cat) - very cool! Coffee out there the next morning was also nice. The restaurant and gift shops were also very nice.
Our room had a king-sized bed, when we had asked for two beds, and there were several light bulbs missing in our room. Otherwise we were pleased.
Staff was unhelpful, first saying tat they would change our room (at> $200/nigh) if it was noisy and then when we asked them for the change to a room in the building set back further away from the Freeway they said it would cost extra... Would not recommend.
Excellent location with a river view right outside our room. We saw the sky full of stars at night. The room was fully equipped with microwave oven, coffee maker and a stove. We enjoyed our dinner by heating up the stuffs we bought from their mart.
They only gave me only one key for two person. The air condition doesn't work. Remote control on the T.V. didn't work.
close to the gate of the park
room is not very clean, no breakfast
It's convenient for the park
The buildings are ugly and look dated. Our room only had a view of the road, and no natural light. The air-con and the fridge were very noisy. The staff were brusque. The restaurants limited.The TV remote didn't work.
- Relatively short drive to the valley compared to other hotels - On-site restaurant and store that's open late - River view rooms with balconies are great if you can get them
- Expensive for the quality of room provided. You're paying a premium for the close proximity to the park - Pillows suck - Bathroom needs updating - "mountain view" room was looking past exterior walkway across a parking lot (no privacy with windows open)
Very close to Yosemite, booked late so nothing in the park was available but this was very good in terms of location, about 2 miles from the entrance on highway 140. Clean but basic rooms. Microwave, sink, dishes, fridge all available. Bathroom spacious and clean. Good night's sleep. Restaurants on sight. Indoor and outdoor pools
No kettle. Minimal toiletries. Toilet had some problems flushing.
Big, comfortable rooms. The swimming pools were an unexpected surprise, and much used by us in the evenings. LOVED the balcony over the river, however didn't realise it would cost more than original quote.
Due to the fires and road closure to park on arrival we were upgraded which worked to our advantage especially as they opened the road at 10am next morning.
Comfortable, spacious room. Excellent views from balcony (overlooking the river). A couple of good options for dinner - restaurant and pizza place. Only 20-30 minutes drive from Yosemite Village.
No free wifi
Maintenance and cleanliness
The location and the size of the room and bath.
The upholstery on the furniture needed cleaning as well as the rug but then we were there at the end of a busy season. The restaurant staff for breakfast could be a bit friendlier.
position, big bed, very big room and bathroom, very nice
