This was a last minute choice as most places in the park booked out. But it's a bit of a gem really, and we ended up staying for 2 nights. Just been taken over and refurbishment underway so our room very fresh and clean. Right on edge of park too. Breakfast waffles yummy-the rest a little uninteresting. Staff friendly and... More

We spend long weekend in Yosemite, and stayed in the White Chief Lodge. Price wise it was much better deal than staying inside Yosemite, the rooms were good and staff was friendly. The lodge is within 4 miles from the entrance to the park. If there is anything we'd like to be improved, that would be room TVs that have... More

We stayed two couples in a double double two nights in early July. We booked our lodging around Yosemite very late, and it was very difficult to find any good lodging. We stumbled on a recommendation for White Chief Mountain Lodge on a website, and they had vacancies. I think one of the reasons is that they don't have Internet... More

If a hotel was available in Oakhurst I would have chosen that. I came here because my friends had booked a hotel here. It's a family business. Run on the CHEAP. They've invested as little as they can in time and money in keeping the hotel up to date and in your comfort. Cheap coffee, run-down rooms, barely working water...... More

Pros: In real estate, they say: Location, location, location. In this case, location is 2 miles from Yosemite South Entrance, and a hop to the Mariposa Grove of Sequoias (including the Tunnel Tree that you can walk thru - they stopped allowing driving thru it years ago). Clean basic motel-type rooms with mini-fridge, microwave and comfortable bed. With nighttime temperatures... More

I stayed here for two nights in early June, based on TripAdvisor reviews from other folks. Yosemite is a busy place all year, but this place is like an oasis from the hustle and bustle, 300 yards off the main road into the park. It is clean and comfortable, meets basic needs very well, and is a good deal for... More

As stated by others, basic room facilities, but excellent beds and extremely clean facilities. A little old on the outside but the front rooms are all double glazed. Free Wi-Fi. More than enough breakfast, friendly owners and an excellent price for Yosemite. Basically just motel rooms, but hey Yosemite in the day - sleep at night.

The bedroom included a small dining table with two chairs, small refrigerator and microwave. The bed was firm but comfortable The bathroom was roomy enough. Didn't like the shower because it didn't spray out hard enough and I couldn't get it hot, just warm. We had trouble adjusting the heater. It was a little too warm throughout the night. It... More

We had a hard time finding a decent price in expensive Hotels of Yosemite area. This hotel was one of the few that didnt have crazy rates, plus it is close to the park entrance (giant sequoia area). The location is great, the cottage was really in the forest, sorrounded by super tall trees. Inside, though, the carpet was smelly,... More
