Convenience to Yosemite Valley
Only 2 mi to Yosemite entrance, Nice Balcony Riverside,beautiful scenery, Clean,Fresh Air!!!
1. Moldy shower curtain. 2. Dirty carpet. 3. No bath matt. 4. Malfunctioning shower head 5. Limited eating venues and options
1. Proximity to the Park. 2. Availability of rooms.
The customer service or front desk people should be more courteous, friendly and enthusiastic. Most of them are always in a rush and not very accommodating.
The Location is excellent (very close to the Yosemite entrance, Kitchenette was a great help and a bonus! And finally the VIEW is amazing!
The staff appeared to care less that we were there and were bordering on rude when we had question or suggestions for them. The elevator carpet was filthy and was not vacuumed in the 2 days of our visit. Room cleanliness was marginal
The location - the relaxing babbling of the Merced River
Didn't like having to pay for Wi fi. Thought it should be included with price of the room. No cell service. Wish there was a better grocery store closer.q
Beautiful location and really close to the entrance of Yosemite. The lodge is right next to the river and very peaceful. Excellent pizza at the restaurant. Nice pool and jacuzzi. Loved having a little kitchen room.
Our first room was a little problematic but the staff was willing to move us we enjoyed the remainder of our stay immensely
Extortionate WiFi charges
Hot tub with a beer after a long hike in Yosemite
merced river view access to the Park
lack of working hairdryer
Room was fine apart from the hairdryer not working and someone trying to get in early in the morning. Lovely bar area overlooking a stream. Good food in the restaurant at night
Not enough parking close to the buildings, becomes noisy at morning when guests leave, spotted couple of ants in the kitchenette (I didn't bring any food, so they must be local), facets in the bathroom are very used and look like should be replaced.
Very close to the park, laundry services, dining lounge (not too fancy, but tasty and generous plates), helpful staff, good views on the river.
Towels - need to be replaced. Old, frayed..
Location, location...rooms dated but clean, spacious. Good servicee. Convenience of a dining room and the pizza place was excellent.
The carpeting and wall paper needs to be replaced. They looked a bit dingy.
The room was clean, and the beds were comfortable. The on-site restaurant was convenient, and the food was good.
Everything! The dinner in the restaurant was great!
Got a room close to the road with the "mountain view". Didn't know to ask for a River view. Bed and pillow not very comfortable.
Great value for being so close to Yosemite. The property has pools, a gift shop and groceries. The room has a mini kitchen.
Like for location and practical facility
We could hear every noise of the people in the room right next door. Paper thin walls. The shower over bath wouldnt drain the water, it would build up, very unhygenic therefore we couldn't use the shower. I also left my visa debit card on the bed and called the hotel to check and they didn't offer to go up to the room to collect it. Resulting in just cancelling my card. Still havent heard from them and it's been 4 weeks. I'd rather stay inside the village at Yosemite National Park
The proximity to the entry of Yosemite park was perfect. Restaurant on site was handy.
had to pay for wifi; plumbing not great (sinks)
everyone friendly and helpful. nice, clean place
Restaurant- all around, just awful. Uuggghh!

The rooms could use better maintenance and an update for the price we ended up paying. Would it kill them to give free wifi? Tub did not work.
We liked the location and pet friendly. Restaurants at location were pretty good considering there is not much choice in the area. Beds were comfortable, better than average comfort for hotel bed. Property was kept clean.
The hot tubs were either not working or luke warm. Not a deal breaker by any means. Breakfast closes early!
We loved the stream view and the calming sound of the roaring stream. The room was comfortable as were the beds. Room was quiet.
3 of 4 pillows were hard. Absolutely no internet connection. Should come with the price of the room.
Beautiful accomodation (patio & river). Very clean and nicely furnished.
"Mountain view" room booked didn't really offer all that much of a mountain view; internet relatively slow.
Large room; facilities for cooking; reduced price was good (full price would be a bit much though).
