Great location for access to Mono Lake & June Lake, and a great little town (village in UK standards) for food and incidentals etc. Rooms ok & service friendly but we mark this down due to the location of our room being under the stairs & facing a wall with no natural light, we were here 2 nights due to...

I think this a simple, but cosy motel and convenient to reach Yosemite quite fast. It gives the feeling that we are just next to the wild life! :) At check-in we asked some stupid and maybe obvious questions, like 'Do you have bears here?' (yes, we came from the city) so the guy - instead of saying something boring... More

I don't expect much from lower priced accommodation near national parks so I can't say I was disappointed. This is just a place to sleep - clean enough and bed was ok but room was dark and gloomy. Judging from some of the reviews of other hotels I guess this is the best of a bad lot.

Lakeview lodge is our favorite place to stay when we go up for June Mountain trips. Lee vining is a dead town with nothing open past 8pm which kinda sucks, but lake view lodge provides large sized rooms, standard amenities all at a relatively low price.

As a former resident of Lee Vining and Mono City I have a pretty good sense of the local lodging options and the Lake View was my first choice when we found ourselves in the Yosemite backcountry on the last morning of a five-day backpacking trip and realized we did not want to drive any farther than the foot of...

We are familiar with the area and looked at several properties before deciding on this one. We wanted to stay in Yosemite National Park and our favourite there is the Yosemite View Lodge, but the Lake View Lodge fitted our budget and travel plans better. Just as well, Tioga Pass was snowed in the following morning! We stayed the first... More

We stayed in a room across the street from the main motel. It was a warm night and we opened the windows for fresh air. Before we new it, there were gnats swarming behind the valance and around the lamps. We called the office, but would not do anything about it. They would only offer us some spray bug killer... More

Rooms IN Yosemite are very high, and iffy. Approaching Yosemite from Lee Vining is perfect to get a reasonable rate and a good start on a multiday visit. We are in a cabin #10. Check in is good. Parking is good. there is a store on the property that has groceries and cooked food. the cabin has a couple chairs... More

as other reviewers say, this is a good location for Tioga pass to Yosemite and visiting Mono Lake. No special character to this motel, but was comfortable for the foursome sharing a room. As it was set back from the main road of this small place, it was not noisy but within easy access of local amenities.

An older but well maintained hotel. Spacious, clean & comfortable rooms. Two quirks - in the morning you ran water about 5 minutes before hot water reached your sink/shower. Once we got hot water we couldn't seem to get cold water to brush our teeth. Maybe it because we were on the 2nd floor. Wi-Fi in rooms was sporadic &... More
