I was a bit concerned when I read some negative reviews just before we left for Lee Vining. However, our experience was very positive. Our teenaged grandson was joining us for a photo trip to Mono Lake and Bodie so we opted for one of the large cabins. At 3 bedrooms/2 baths, it may be the largest one. Friends stayed... More

This motel is OK. A decent place to stay in Lee Vining. Nice big rooms. Pleasant places to sit outdoors. It doesn't really have much of a view of Mono Lake. It's in town. Easy walking to other facilities in town. What's with this 200 word minimum? I don't have more to add. It's just a decent place to stay.

Lodge was mostly ok except for the musty smell in the room. The room was good size but ran out of the hot water early morning or evening. There is a coffee place next door with limited bakeries in the morning. There is also a market and restaurant next door. We stayed there for 2 nights to visit Yosemite park.... More

We didn't have high expectations for this 1 night stop on our way from Vegas to Yosemite and so we weren't really disappointed. We had a room in the motel - it was dated and old-fashioned but we were't there for very long and we managed to have a decent nights sleep so can't really complain. The biggest issue we... More

Now this motel was a pleasant surprise ! After a long day in Yosemite, we were very pleased to discover this nice lodge, with good bedding, very clean and above all in a quiet environment. Only negative point was perhaps the quality of the Wifi, but then Wifi was not the reason for us coming to Lee Vining ...

The location is the reason we stay there. It is fifteen minutes from the East gate entrance to Yosemite national park. The worst thing about this place is their reservation system. They do not use computers and you don't get a confirmation when you make Reservation by phone. They do give you a confirmation number so when you call back... More

My friend and I were on a road trip to Mammoth. It was pretty late at night and all the rooms in Lee Vining were booked. We got the last room at the Lake View Lodge and were very surprised by how big it was and how comfortable it was for an overnight. The people at the front desk were... More

The name of the Lake View Lodge should be changed to “Propane Tank View Lodge” since the propane tanks pretty much obscure that pristine view of Mono Lake that you were looking forward to. Luckily the window still opens so you can get some fresh air to clear out the smell of decades of pot smoke. The room surprisingly has... More

Be careful, the people who run this place are dishonest! I tried to book a room there, but never got a confirmation email. I then tried to reach the hotel on the phone and even sent a fax (which was costly, as I don't live in the US), and didn't get any answer. I booked another hotel in Lee Vining,... More

My vehicle lost a water pump at 11:30 pm just south of Lee Vining CA. driving to Sparks NV.. After being towed into town, the tow person gave me a ride to Lake View Lodge a little after 1:00 am 6-5-2015. The night person gave me cabin 19 for $150.08 .at 1:25 am. About 2:15 am I had the night... More
