River right outside

Busy but convenient

Location outside the Park was good. The property needs some serious upgrades to make it satisfactory. Beds and pillows lumpy and cheap, floors grubby and stained. The location has a lot going for it and perhaps thats why no effort is made to improve the facility.. Would not stay here again

They were accommodating. Helped us change rooms when the other room was not as we expected and it was quick.

The hotel is very old.. they charge for the WiFi 10US and for the breakfast 18US (and is very basic, 5US could be fair) No celular/data signal, be aware that if you want internet, you must pay extra 10US

Found this Lodge on Orbitz and fell in love with the pictures so decided to book. The hotel was just outside of Yosemite Park and the view was amazing. We got the view to the river which was awesome but walking around the property, you can’t go wrong with any room as its surrounded by mountains! The carpet in our room was a bit dirty but I’ve seen worse. Wish the lodge offered free wifi. We did end up paying for it which was $10 for 24 hours and it was a decent speed. We went to the restaurant to eat and decided to stay at the bar, the bartended was nice but seemed like he was didn’t want tk be there. We ordered pizzas for dinner which were decent. Overall very satisfied with our stay and would definitely stay here again because of the view and price!

Very close to the Yosemite Entrance. Beautiful view of the bridge from rooms w/ river-facing balcony. Spacious. Convenient store and gift shop at the lobby. Highly recommended!

The room is just next to a mountain creek with water running. The view from balcony is very beautiful. The room is big and clean. AC is loud and not very cold. The TV program has not many channels and is not HD. Too bad there is no free WIFI.

Great location just minutes from Yosemite. Overpriced for what you get. The rooms could use some updating. Missing basic features like a trash can in the bathroom, toilet paper holder, towel hook. Internet access should not be an extra charge given the high price of the room.

Place was fine. Very close to park and that is what we wanted. Not very clean. No early check in. No ovens in kitchenette. Beds were very comfortable. Had to pay for wifi and only 2 device were allowed to use it. Pizza place was good.

Right off of Merced River. Property charges for Wi-Fi connection as well as additional adm. and fire fees per night

I love the place because Is soooo close Yosemite entrance.... behind the hotel we have a close encounter with the beautiful river! ..... Also one of the things that for us worked perfect is the little kitchenette.... awesome place!!!

Very cool place with the river running by. Also very convenient with a small kitchen, good for family with baby.

RIver view and patio

I love the River view rooms!
