Tenaya Lodge has all the conveniences you could wish for; pool, good sized rooms, good room service, facilities for families etc. However, it is let down by the poor management of the restaurants. I could see free and clean tables but still had to wait 30-40 mins at a non busy time. It would've been perfect if not for this... More

The lodge was gorgeous and in a perfect setting in the forest. The rooms were comfortable, and well appointed and fairly clean. Most importantly they are VERY pet friendly, so take your pooch. The reason I do not give them a 5 star rating is that the maintenance is not what it could be. I had to put the screen... More

Tis hotel is excellent in a lovely area and only 10 minutes from Yosemite, staff were good, rooms very large and comfortable and the swimming pool area is really nice. Restaurant is very expensive as are the coffees but the setting of the hotel makes up for it.

This hotel is in a great location, surrounded by forest and only two miles from the Yosemite park entrance, definitely a good base for going to the park. It had a real resort feel to the place, lots of space and a really nice pool area. Our room was ok, but the bed was a bit small (everywhere else we... More

Great location for visiting Yosemite, first impressions were good, valet parking, efficient check in. We had a double room, good size, good bathroom all very clean and in good condition. There were 3 place to eat but you could only reserve a table at one of them. This would not have been a problem if the capacity of the other... More

Stayed at Tenaya for 3 days while touring Yosemite. Stayed in one of the cabins which I preferred to a hotel room. Private and very nice. It was 1st of May so not too busy, but because they were not busy, the service in the dining area was poor to nonexistent. Other than that it was clean and comfortable. Probably... More

There's no doubt that staying within Yosemite park itself means less driving and easier access to the park trails. However, if you've ever stayed in park lodging, you know the rooms are usually very old, run down (although clean) and have little or no amenities and usually no air conditioning. Tenaya Lodge is just a few miles outside the south... More
