I'd driven to Yosemite from the Portland (Oregon) area, resting briefly at a rest stop on Interstate 5 before turning east on Hwy 140 toward the National Park. By the time I arrived, I was very tired and clearly in need of a good night's sleep. The visitor quickly learns that there are few bargains in accommodations in the Yosemite... More

I don't mean to be harsh but the hotel was poor. The decor was early 80's at best and in total need of a complete refresh. The fridge in my room made so much noise I had to wake up in the middle of the night and unplug it. The room was big and had all that I needed but... More

This lodge is about five minutes from the entrance to Yosemite: the resulting value for money alone rates it a five. Having read previous reviews, we requested an updated room (still available the day we arrived in late April) and brought our own pillows. Yes, the towels are thin, but they do the job. Yes, the TV is old-style, but... More

I was shocked to see how much nicer it is in person than people are saying here. I think they're referring to the furnishings in the room, which are really old, dusty and need replacing, including the carpeting and fixtures. But the view from the balcony in each room cannot be beat. Bring back your food, eat on the balcony... More

Staff was friendly but they are behind on maintenance. Two lamps in our room were wobbly, we had to reattach bulb assembly, one failed to work anyway; Room phone did not work, required hotel operator assistance; mediocre mattress, poor pillows; many cigarette butts on the ground outside our door. Phone details: The hotel is out of cell range- needed room... More

This hotel is in a great location. High price, outdated room with dirty carpet and worn furniture. Hard beds, terrible pillows, thin towels. Laundry room was a joke as none of the machines work. 10.00 per day charge for internet. With a little work this could be a really nice place. I would book earlier next time and stay in... More

Motel complex with several buildings, heated outdoor and indoor pool. Good location 10 min outside Yosemite, get to gates before 9.30 to skip car lines. Great pizza at hotel and nice restaurant for breakfast (pay extra) and dinner. Worked well with out kids 4+6 yrs. Rooms ok. Clean, but a bit dated.

The lodge was good. Kind of busy,very close to the yosemite west entrance , tge river view is nice. The lobby was being renovated so it was messy. The receptionists were all young people, not friendly at all. Liked the restaurant tho it is under different management. The room was ok, the shower head was not working probably. The two... More

Location is unbeatable. Room is as dirty/dingy as possible. $10 for WiFi after overpriced room. Pillow is as thick as a piece of white bread. Ants crawling around the room. They are redoing the lobby to create a store/gift shop. They seem to only be interested in ways to get more money out of you. Pit some money back into... More

The Yosemite Lodge at The Falls was full, (where we have stayed before), so we booked a room at the Yosemite View Lodge in El Portal. We had a room on the river....pricey, but the view and sound of water rushing was awesome. The bed was adequate and the room was clean. With a few upgrades, it could have been... More
