We loved staying here! Beautiful view out onto the river. Spa pool and swimming pool were great after a days hiking. Couldn't have door open at night as river was way too loud, but with doors shut it was fine.

My daughter and I (from the UK) stayed here for 2 nights at the end of March travelling from San Fran to Vegas. Having read previous reports I was rather concerned at what we would find. I have to say we were very happy with it all. The location is excellent, only a short drive into the stunning park. We... More

You are paying for the location. I had a river view room which I booked after reading traveler reviews here and on Expedia. I traveled with my 13 year old and my daughter joined us for a night. I was glad to be on the river, however, know that in April, the river is LOUD. The noise is sufficiently dimmed... More

There are a lot of great things about Yosemite View Lodge - location to Yosemite Natl Park, located on Merced River...but they fell short on bathroom cleanliness. The lobby area is a shared art gallery and country store setting which is great for this type of facility. All the employees my wife and I met were friendly. The River Restaurant... More

This hotel has beautiful views of the Merced River. The rooms are large and comfortable. Our Room had a terrace overlooking the river, it was lovely. There is a small indoor pool, which was very warm, a little too warm, if anything.
