Well, if I think of it as a "lodge" then it should receive a good review. But, we were on a much awaited family reunion and it was "hotel with spa" and thus our expectations were heightened. The bedding was stinky as was the carpet, wreaking of human sweat. They changed the bedding out when requested, including the underlying mattress... More

The hotel is very well located and the rooms are nice. The quality/price balance is good regarding the overpriced resort in the valley however if you consider them overpriced...the concierge was very helpful. One weard thing happend during our stay , there was a cut of electrical power for "upgrading" during the day (10-5) during full season...and the management didn't... More

Thanks for your four-star review - and just wanted to thank you for bearing with us through the day we were performing required maintenance on our hotel's electrical transformer and thus had a scheduled interruption of power. More

The restaurants on the property are mediocre at best-just slight better than hospital cafeteria food. In addition the process they seat you is disorganized and ineffective. The hotel charges an outrageous $9.95 per day for Internet use. The staff was overwhelmed with people at all times to get a hold of a staff required at least a 15-20 min wait.... More

Eceptional value compared to similar level accommodation in the valley. All round everything here seemed to run smoothly, be well organised and staff seemed happy and helpful. Great base for a trip to the sequoia forest.

Whoever designed this website did a good job of making this hotel look attractive. It was the first place we booked on a tour around Califirnia, but we were very disappointed. The ourdoor pool has been remodled since the photo on the web page. It is smaller, with a childrens playground which makes it feel like a Disneyland pool. The... More

We are sorry that Tenaya Lodge did not meet your expectations based on our website. August is high season at Yosemite National Park, and I believe some of your issues would not have been as acute had you visited off-peak-season. As a point of clarification, Tenaya Lodge is less than 2 miles or approximately 5 minutes from Yosemite National Park... More

The hotel is located within 20 minutes of the Mariposa Grove and 45 minutes from Yosemite Valley. Besides the Wanona and Awahnee hotels, the Tenaya Lodge is the only other 4 diamond hotel withinn Yosemite. The hotel has various restaurants that allow you to dine in different atmospheres. Whether you are dining with kids or just as a couple, you... More

I don't get the negative reviews of the Tenaya Lodge. Based on the reviews I was expecting the rooms to be barely adequate, but was pleasantly surprised by the Tenaya Lodge. The location is excellent, so close to the Mariposa Grove we were able to do a quick hike there before our checkout after spending the previous day at Yosemite... More

Superb hotel with excellent facilities And food and fantastic location nr park. Only issue is the cost of wifi which in this day and age is unacceptable. Concierge staff are excellent and very helpful. probably not best for a quick stop over - you won't get best value.

We stayed at the Tenaya Lodge at the end of May 2011, arriving in the snow, a magical and unexpected experience. The Lodge was about as American as one could imagine, huge log fire in the lobby, smell of wood everywhere, gloriously comfortable beds, great food (divine pancakes for breakfast) and a wonderful day in Yosemite Park organised by the...

We just returned from a 3 night stay at the Tenaya Lodge and after reading several negative reviews, I wanted to reassure anyone staying here that it is perfect!!!! Yes, everything is overpriced.....BUT I would much rather spend $10 on a sandwich then camp outside in Yosemite. I would however recommend bringing your own snacks, water, alcoholic beverages and anything... More
