Came here to stay while we hiked the eastern side of Yosemite. Within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Easy check-in/out and room was clean. No frills, but well priced. As many people are departing early to get into the park, expect that there will be car noise in the early hours. We had a first level room, which was... More

A good halfway stop between Yosemite National Park.and Death Valley. A short drive from Mono Lake with its interesting history and all the usual small town facilities. Comfortable room despite having now 'view' at all.

Most of this can be summed up with 3 phrases: "captive audience," "small town," and "remote." The good - quick responses to emails; generally clean and attractive facilities; well maintained grounds; good ice machine; reasonably quick check-in; adequate parking; reasonable price given the location. The bad - little hot water, and what there was alternated between scalding hot and very... More

Close to Mono Lake, Yosemite and in reasonable distance to Bodie. Okay for a night or two - but do do not expect to see the lake from your room. Our room was huge, bed comfortable and everything was very clean. The information in the booklet in the room is outdated - we ended up being one hour prior to... More

the epic fail i find here is that , beside the tired lodging, the owners block the driveways with heavy machinery or things or signs so that the renters cannot possibly use the drive through to the local market or post office. epic fail to what could be a good time. inconvenient and difficult to navigate around blockades. i recommend...

We stayed one night at the Lake View Lodge on our way to Yosemite from Nevada. We enjoyed the beautiful view and the spacious rooms. Friendly staff, clean rooms. Breakfast isn't provided, but there is a coffee shop and bakery on the premises and a few restaurants within walking distance. We had a small kitchenette in our room and the... More

The lodge is centrally located in Lee Vining, within walking distance to restaurants, shops, and city parks. (The Mono Lake Visitor Center is a bit farther away.) We had a cabin behind the main motel building; be advised that not all rooms actually have a lake view, but a few steps outside will bring it in sight. Our cottage (16A)... More

The room was big enough and clean. There is no breakfast but we get a discount voucher for the nearby café. Good starting point for the Yosemite N.P.... More

We booked this place last minute as we drove through the Tioga Pass. Room is spacious, friendly check in. Lee Vining is a cute little town with beautiful surroundings. Lake Mono is very close. We enjoyed our stay.
