With the millions of visitors heading for Yosemite Valley during the spring and summer months lodging can be extremely hard to find unless you made reservations months in advance. Yosemite View Lodge would be the first place I would try if the park is full. The first big plus is that it is the nearest hotel from the valley. For... More

Overall, this hotel has clearly seen better days: the furniture still looks like it's from the seventies, and the bathroom appears to date from the same period without some well-deserved maintenance meanwhile. See pictures for the faucet in the bath, mould on the bathroom walls, and the hairdryer which came off the wall when simply trying to pull it from... More

My wife and I just completed a visit to Yosemite National Park and this was the hotel we used to access the park. Our room, which was in the Sequoia building was large and very clean. It had a small kitchen and a jacuzzi tub in the room. The shower was huge... able to accommodate 2 adults. The room was... More

Very dated and dark accommodation, but being right next to the river was lovely. We hadn't realised that it would take us about twenty minutes to actually get into the park. The little kitchenette was useful, allowing us to prepare breakfast and a picnic lunch. Great little pizzeria on site, which we used when the restaurant had too many coach... More

The only thing this place has going for it is the location. The lodge is very old and average, rooms nothing to write about, totally not worth the amount you pay for it. Only good thing in the room was that it had a basic cooking range and some utensils so you could at least fix breakfast. I guess because... More

The hotel is as you would expect: a bit dated, a bit scruffy and clean 'enough' and it is close to the park if you are booking too late to get a room in Yosemite Village. But, it is over-priced for what it is and there is nothing around so you are stuck eating at one of their two restaurants... More

The Yosemite View lodge was a great option for our recent family stay in the Yosemite area. We had planned to camp as we do every year but the freezing temps took us to the lodge. The lodge had spacious rooms with kitchenettes, small fridge and microwave. Some balconies over look a mountain view with a rushing river. The restaurant... More

We checked in at 7.30 pm. Although it was very busy the staff was most helpful. Very convenient location for Yosemite national,park. Has laundry facilities. You need 5 twenty five cents coins for the washer and 3 twenty five cents coins for the dryer. We had two queen size beds so we slept in luxury as we decided we should... More

For visiting Yosemite this location is perfect, and there is very beatyfull surroundings. We arrived very late 11 pm, and it may have been the reason that the staff was very fast and not a lot of information was given. The were no free parking space near the room. The room was very old like the rest of the facilities... More
