You wouldn't think that this small village would have such nice accommodations, but the proximity to the Mammoth, Mono Lake and Yosemite area has undoubtedly raised the level of service -- and the prices. I stayed here one lonely, freezing winter night and was perfectly happy with my clean, modern room, working Internet, and the proximity to a decent market... More

We did a road trip in March and drove to see Mono Lake at sunset - breathtaking colors! This hotel was conveniently located right next to the market and the only restaurant that was open - Nicely's. The room was fairly large - 2 queen beds and two sinks. Water was nice and hot and plentiful when showering. Coffee maker,... More

The Lakeview Lodge in Lee Vining on the eastern side of the Sierras provides beautiful views of Mono Lake, and though it is an older establishment, the rooms are clean and cozy. This time I stayed during a snow storm as I was driving home from southern California and my room was toasty, expansive, and well equipped. with a microwave... More

Since this was an inexpensive motel in the middle of nowhere, we were bracing for the worst, but were pleasantly surprised with our room. It must have been recently remodeled because the carpet, bed spread and bathroom all seemed brand new. The pillows were flimsy, but not that big of a deal. It appears that the owners take great pride... More

My husband and I stayed here while driving up Highway 395 and it was a great place for the value. We stayed in the main part of the lodge. We weren't expecting much considering the slim pickings but it was a pleasant place to stay for the evening. The rooms are a little dated but overall comfortable. The heater worked... More

As we did a tour through California this was a comfortable place to stay nearby Yosemite park and mono lake. We had a charming little cabin nicely decorated and small but even had a little kitchen area with cooking possibility's. It was clean but as the floor was of the ground the cold wind blew under the floor and it... More

You will need quite good eye sight to see the Lake (Mono) from here, but then again, I am not entirely sure that is why one would visit Lee Vining. I am also not entirely sure why one would visit Lee Vining, but that's another story ........ When we came down out of Yosemite NP, across Tioga Pass (Hwy 120),... More

Given the options for lodging in Lee Vining, I would recommend Lake View Lodge. It has everything you need, even if things are getting a little dated. For this reason it is overpriced but I guess that's down to the location. If the price had been more reasonable this would have been a 4 Star review. However, we enjoyed our... More

This looks like your typical, small town motel, but in the back they have several cabins you can rent for the price of a standard room. Some come with a full kitchen, living room and separate bedroom with full bath. They could have used a hide-a-bed sofa instead of two recliners in the living room though. Someone traveling with children... More
