That's it's only saving grace for the price. My wife and I stayed at the lodge for three nights in June of last year. Yosemite was all that we had been lead to believe and more. The lodge on the other hand. It's not that it is that bad, the facilities are not bad and the outdoor pool is very... More

We spend 2 nights at Yosemite View Lodge as part of our visit to Yosemite. The location is great with only a short drive to the park. We had a very big room which was needed with two teenage girls and lots of luggage. The room had a kitchenette (refrigerator, stove, sink etc.) and a large bathroom. It was in... More

Let's face it, you're paying for being 20 mins drive away from Yosemite Valley. Without that this place would be 50 bucks a night, and I'd probably pay that and be ok with it. It's not been kept well and could do with some of the exorbitant prices being charged fed back into the upkeep and maintenance of the hotel,... More

Incredibly expensive for what you get but what other choice do we have? I'm afraid to say that it really is 'location, location, location' at this motel. It would be nice to see freshed bathrooms, air conditioning installed and the choice of food improved. It really is difficult to eat well here! Yosemite blew us away, I can't say the... More

The last time I came to this property was twenty years ago. It was considerably smaller. It's very large now so can accommodate many more Yosemite visitors, which is good. You can get a reservation relatively later than most Yosemite properties, which is great for last minute travel plans. We booked in April for July visit. Happy to get a... More

The low point in our 4 week trip to USA. On arrival sheets were dirty from previous occupants. We requested new sheets and received a bundle of smelly replacement bedding. Unbelievable!! Carpets were stained and filthy. Staff did not give a damn. Luckily we were only booked in for 2 nights. By far the worst excuse for a hotel we... More

We stayed at Yosemite View Lodge for three nights during July, 2015. Situated just outside Yosemite, next to the river, we could not stay more perfect for tours into the park. The hotel is a bit outdated, but the cleaning was spotless and we enjoyed our big room with a kitchenette and a big bathroom. And best of all: the... More

We had a wonderful stay at Yosemite View Lodge - the lodge is very well located for the beautiful Yosemite national park. Unfortunately our room was very warm upon arrival and there were ants in the bedroom and bathroom. The room was slightly dated and we were disappointed that the jacuzzi in our accommodation block did not work. We were,... More

Our room in Maple was plenty big enough for our family of four. The swimming pool beside the river was still in the sun past 6pm and was a nice spot to unwind after a long drive. The kitchenette was clean and tidy and had everything we needed to cook a simple meal. I wished I didn't check under the... More

Awful... Worst hotel I have ever stayed in. We arrived late and really had no choice other than to stay but checked out first thing next day cancelling the next 2 nights. The room was dark, dirty, had ants, stove didn't work and the patio was bleak. Advertises free wifi but you need to pay at $10 per night, hotel... More
