The beds were comfortable, but the staff was rude about letting us use the WiFi to get directions and had to drive 3 miles to CHECK IN THE ROOM.

A little on the old side but the best option for the price. We knew in advance that the property was a little away from the main lodge and check-in. One of the closest hotels to Yosemite.

There was something wrong with Red Bud Lodge, so we ended up staying at Cedar Lodge. My children loved the indoor pool, and we took advantage of the kitchenette. The property is dated and the cleanliness could have been improved.

There is no on site checkin. We had to travel another 2 miles from the hotel for checkin. But the room is spacious.

What am I missing? This place is SO close to Yosemite, is clean, has standard accommodations and wonderful customer service! I don't understand the low ratings!

Close to Yosemite and it was just what I need for mi trip to Yosemite

We were told that the room we booked online was sold out so we got an upgrade for free. The upgraded room was terrible. The appliances in the room were broken down even the phone was dead. Blanket has stains. There were bugs in the hot tub. We had a rough night. It's not worth the money. Wouldn't recommend to friends. Horrible experience.

The water pressure in this place is extremely low. Don't even think about taking a shower cause you would be in there forever. The problem with this place is that check-in is at the cedar lodge 2 miles down the road. No pool.

1. There is no staff at the Redbud lodge. Check-in is at another hotel 3 miles away. 2. There are no amenities you expect by default for a room that costs $150. Internet is 10 bucks per device per day, coffee is extra, no free breakfast. 3. They did not have my room set up. Imagine a hard day of hike at the park and then having to deal with an unorganized set up which is 3 miles away from your original place.

No wifi, no telephone Tried to cancel one day out of 5 day stay told manager not here and to come back. I came back twice but could not get hold of the manger. Check in is 2 miles away. After I paid $10 for 24hrs of wifi-told the Redbud lodge I am staying at does not support wifi. Has full kitchen with utensil and wine glass
