River view is great with a big spacious patio
Size of rooms, kitchenette
While the prices are low and the accommodation ok, the feeling you get from visiting this place is that the owners have given up caring. There are no nice touches to make guests feel welcome, just lots of grumpy signs around the place telling you what you shouldn't do. Wifi is $10 for 24 hrs and there's no reception otherwise. This is one of those places that trades on its location and the fact that you'll probably only visit once.
The honeymoon suite, The view from our room. Very conveinient location inside the park.
The price. The restaurant is open limited hours.
Closest hotel to the Yosemite valley. Spa tub, indoor pool and spa, great (and affordable) restaurant. Very friendly staff.
Looks and feels like a motel.
We arrived at the Lodge one day early due to my calendar mistake, they cleared a room for us anyway; the staff was great as was the food and restaurant facilities! The view from our room was fabulous.
-Really good location -Pool&spa
-cleanliness (covert with a lot of spot, bath not cleaned) -maintenance (shower evacuation, humidity, etc)
Staff needs to be more personable and friendly. Grocery store was poorly stocked for being so big. No first aid products.
The view of the river is soothing.
I like free coffee in the lobby.
The check in process was quick, the room was ready on time, and th elocation was perfect for our trip to Yosemite national park.
The balcony outside the room with the river flowing past
Toilet leaking so we had to move rooms. New room ok, but very expensive for what was a pretty basic facility. You pay for the location.
CLOSE TO YOSEMITE..JUST A FEW MILES OUTSIDE PARK AND THE JUNCTION TO TIOGA, GLACIER PT/WAWONA AND MARIPOSA.
NO ACCESS TO WIFI WITHOUT PAYING EXTRA ESPECIALLY SINCE UNABLE TO GET CELL PHONE RECEPTION IN THE AREA. 2 BURNER STOVE BUT ONLY 1 BURNER WORKED. CARPET SHOULD BE REPLACED....LOTS OF SPOTS.
We enjoyed the hot tub and pool. We also enjoyed our view of the Merced River.
The staff was very helpful - upon checking in, the front desk staff found a better room for us, without us even asking. The kitchen amenities were just fine for a kitchenette. The location was great. The staff at the restaurant were very friendly and the food was quite good. The hotel also has several hot tubs and pools throughout the property, which were nice to soak in following a day of hiking.
The hotel is definitely old, so it could use an upgrade, but overall it was clean. The price is a bit high, but it is literally right outside the park, so that helped compensate a bit.
We have stayed here several time over the past 20 years. It is very convenient to Yosemite Valley and great to have a kitchenette.
The rooms are showing signs of age and neglect. Stained grout, a bit of mold in the shower, electrical tape on exposed wires on a lamp, peeling wallpaper, dirty carpets, broken chain on ceiling fans, heater worked intermittently. Very sad that there is no longer attention to detail in this once lovely hotel.
River view awesome. Housekeeping very accomodating
No towels or shower at pool. some construction noise early sat. a.m.
I like the location and the fact that it was really close to the Yosemite main entrance. The price was fair for the room we paid, specially since it was really close to our destination.
The room seemed to be taken out of a 1970's show. The printed wall paper along with ugly comforters and poor lighting makes you wonder what else is leaving in your room. The walls are super thin and you can hear your neighbor's every move.
We were given a free upgrade upon our arrival to King Bed, flat screen TV, fireplace, third floor w/balcony, water view, jetted xtra lge tub. We had only paid for a 2 Queen bed, mountain view room. What a pleasant stay.
Burners on stove couldn't heat enough to cook pancakes correctly. We needed (and were given upon request) a page list of TV Channel identification. Everything else was perfect.
Location, view of river, room and balcony on river, cleanliness
dinner at restaurant was poor; kitchen apparently unable to cope with medium number of customers, slow and mediocre food (rubbery chicken) altho waiter did his best.
good for watching the heron in the stream well equipped laundry restaurant and take aways available quiet location 400 yards from entrance sign for Yosemite NP El Portal was open when other entrances were closed by snow
only a basic supermarket
There is a great pizza restaurant on site.
The rooms were dirty and tired but in a great spot. We could have forgiven the stray 'personal hairs' in the shower and the blocked toilet but when we urgently needed to see a doctor the staff sent us to the medical centre in the park. The centre's website said it was closed but the staff assured us that the site was old and incorrect this misdirection added 3 hrs onto our journey to a doctor in an emergency situation.
would have been a good position in the park but a forest fire closed the road to yosemite village which meant we had to do a 2 1/2 hour detour. Room was lovely, spacious with excellent facilities.
Restaurant was expensive,poor quality & not very clean.
For a hotel outside the park, it is as close as one can get (it still takes half an hour to drive from hotel to Yosemite Village).
The high prices of the rooms.
location is good, not far away from west gate
no plate in kitchen, the room is small
