So, at the last minute I wanted to get a room for two nights inside Yosemite, for my 25th anniversary. The Yosemite reservations system was able to get me a room for the actual anniversary date at the park Yosemite Falls View lodge (a major surprise to us), but for the next night, the reservations agent said I'd have to...

Hotels within the National park are just too pricey. This hotel is just a short drive away from the entrance to the park for 25% of the hotels inside of the park. Hotel has many amenities including a restaurant, internet, indoor pool, outdoor pool.

Very close to yosemite national park entrance, so I could national park very easily. Also, Its location is surrounded by mountains, so that night is quiet night - I saw a lot of stars with sound of nature. It was Beautiful.

Nice views, room was nice, quiet, and clean. They had a store on the property that was very well stocked and the prices were reasonable. We had a 3rd floor room on the river and that was great. The bar was nice and the pizza was really great. I'll stay there again.

I enjoy the outdoors but prefer a bed for sleeping and a hot shower. Yosemite View provides both of both of these items. The hotel is clean and well maintained. Maid service was efficient. The hotel has an indoor and outdoor pool and hottub. Don't look for amenities, you are there to visit the National Park. This hotel is outside... More

We stayed here Memorial Day Weekend. I had read a lot of reviews and was a bit concerned about this place based on some of them. Not sure where the reviewers stayed, but it must not have been here. We were in the Sequoia building, which one reviewer said was the best. Did not see the others, but the place... More

While I agree that the view is spectacular and the location is ideal, the hotel is way overpriced for what you get. I've had better stays in bargain motels--room is very outdated, carpet and mattress stained, ants all over bathroom and kitchen, jacuzzi tub stopper doesn't work, 2 hot tubs had cold water one night, and one hot tub the...

My cousin and I stayed at Yosemite View Lodge for our trip to Yosemite because everything in the park was already booked. The only great thing this place has is location, being located right by the river and being only 5 min away from the park entrance and 20 mins away from Yosemite Village. The rooms need renovation and were... More

We chose this hotel as it was next to the entrance from Highway 140. We had earlier driven using the scenic route from Sonora, Ca (Highway 49). We booked three months in advance and after reading Trip Advisor reviews, I also requested a room overlooking the Merced River. Our room had a jacuzzi, twin showers, king bed, fireplace, mini-fridge, patio... More

What is good about this place is its proximity to the Park . The room we had served our purpose well - it was somewhere that we could return to having been out and about all day . The room was large - equipped with coffee maker , microwave and cooker rings . The room was clean and quiet even... More
