We stayed in a somewhat dingy room above the office, not a lovely, spacious cottage. I almost never use indoor lights during the day, but needed them to see within the room. The office is cheerful and bright, and staff were pleasant. The bed was comfortable enough, and hot water was immediate and plentiful. No mini fridge in our room.... More

We stayed here after a day at Yosemite with plans to see Mono lake. Rooms were clean with a nice coffee shop for breakfast on the site and pretty gardens with tables. The only down side is the lack of a pool. As we checked out the next day the receptionist gave us a map and clear directions to the... More

We stayed one night after Yosemite and I wish I could have stayed a little more to enjoy this peaceful little town. The staff was very friendly. I stayed in a cottage in the back so no new of the lake which for me it was k. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and just beautiful . However, despite having... More

We loved our little cottage in the back of the property (#14), but be advised that there are very view rooms in the place that actually have a view of Mono Lake. The location was very convenient and the setting was very relaxing. A bit pricey for Lee Vining, but overall very nice.

Our room was on the ground floor. It was very clean and the beds were comfortable. It included a microwave oven and small refrigerator, both of which were in good working order. The lighting and electrical plugs were somewhat deficient. My husband uses a breathing machine and when we went to plug it in next to the bed, we never... More

Good location, good experience overall during two nights at this lodge. We had a casita, or cabin, or whatever it's called (#18A) and it was fine, if a little cramped. Bed mattresses need to be replaced. Staff is decent. They should not say "high speed internet!" as they do on the signs outside; we could not get on the wifi... More

A great place to stop for the night by Tioga Pass entrance to Yosemite. There is a great market next door, a self service laundromat and a couple of places to eat. We stayed in one of the cabins behind the hotel, so no lake view, just birds singing. It's perfect for a night of non restaurant food as the... More

After spending the day in Yosemite I choose this motel to reboot. Amenities were nice. You receive an actual key to the room. I can't remember the last time I got a key. It was nice to sit outside the door and watch the sunset. I would definitely stay here again.

My son and I stayed in Cabin 14 the night before entering YNP through the Tioga Pass. The cabin was comfortable, clean and quiet. The front desk service was excellent and the Wi-Fi free. (I enjoyed waking up the next morning, traipsing out to the courtyard in the morning sun, and catching up on my e-mails before getting going on... More
