we really enjoy our stay, staff was great property was in good shape. pool was heated we got toenjoy some time there with my kid and wife. very good place to stay for the price and not far away from the valley.

Phone does not work. Sheets are not clean - dirty. Check out is terrible. Overall, worst hotel ever.

Didn't like Staff, Room, Cleanliness. Staff lied about room not being ready to everyone who arrived even 10 mins before 3pm Room has broken shower head, bathroom receptacle doesn't work, furniture and carpet old and dirty.

The room is pretty roomy. I like the kitchen that come with some cookware. The can opener in my room is broken though.

Very close to Yosemite Valley, in the nature, love it

Was disappointed at no free WiFi, and minimal amenities except coffee in the lobby. Shower temp was hard to keep consistent. No towels were ever available in the pool room. Pull out couch was too uncomfortable to sleep on. TV screen quality was poor. Only microwave is in the lobby. Beds were comfortable

I liked the spa tub with the jets but the room had a weird chemical smell in it, maybe from the cleaning products? Also when I arrived for check in the restaurant was closed so I had to drive to Marisposa for something to eat. Breakfast the next morning was great and the staff were very friendly.

Good proximity to yosemite. Hot tub and pool are nice. My biggest complaint is the wifi. If you need it, its only 1 mb/sec and they charge $10 per day. Also, breakfast is not included. There is a restaurant next door for $17 buffet breakfast.

Great for our overnight stay, close to Yosemite. Clean and very nice staff.

Although quite expensive, it was a good deal for the location. The room was fine, just dated. It could use a renovation.

The room was large enough for the family of 6 people. (2 queen beds and a sofa bed). The bathroom was very large. They had nice size bottles of shampoo and body wash, however their was no conditioner. They had a decent size store next to the lobby area, where we purchased milk and paper plates and bowls to use for our meals. (I brought a box of cereal for breakfast) The only microwave available is in the Lobby, so it took a while for us to each heat our bowls of chili for dinner. The food at the restaurant smelled really good, and would be good for a date night, but the prices were really high, if you are looking at feeding 4 children at $10.00 each. The location saved us over an hour drive to get in and out of the park. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Room was clean. Only one ice-maker that I could find. 2 swimming pools looked clean. I felt like our luggage was safe, and I would stay here again.

Seemed kind of like a Bates Motel. Stayed here in the winter as it was close and easy to get to the park. Water stains on the walls, bubbling wallpaper, pilled sheets. It was cheap, so have to give them a point for that, but I'd rather spend a little more to have a little nicer/cleaner place. They are due for an update. Maybe it is different in the other seasons??

Location of the property is very close to the park.

Good location. Swimming pool was very good. My grandchildren were delighted.

I was pleasantly surprised at how close the lodge was to Yosemite. I like that it had a restaurant onsite and the food was good. I did not like that WiFi was down. I was not able to check on my family back home.
