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

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.

We booked a room at this hotel at the last minute and I am glad we did. We have a small family of four and got room 48T a three bedroom, two bath unit with a kitchen, living and eating area. Kitchen was nicely furnished and the living room had a 50inch(?) flat screen TV. Check out the hotel website... More

We checked-in late in a Saturday after a long drive from Las Vegas. Upon arrival, we were welcomed to the hotel by a comfortable lobby and very friendly staff member. The room we were assigned was #44 and it was HUGE!! There were 5 in our group (Me, my wife and 3 smallish children) and I am not exaggerating when... More

The room was.clean and cool. (It was hot.and smoky outside.) The desk staff was.helpful. And I found a great piece of pottery for sale.in the lobby. Conveniently located to Mono Lake.... More

Staff was friendly, room décor was outdated but fit the old-fashioned look and feel of the rest of the Lodge and Lee Vining in general. Location is great - right across street from Mono Lake, amazing views, and situated in portal town of Lee Vining, just outside Inyo N.F. and eastern entrance to Yosemite. No continental breakfast - there is... More

You don't have too many lodging choices in Lee Vining, and after checking Trip Advisor, we chose the Lake View Lodge. We really wanted to stay in one of the cottages, but on a busy weekend, all were booked, and we reserved a king bed room. After semi-camping experiences in and near Yosemite, it was a relief to open the... More

Very good Budget hotel. Rooms clean and comfortable with good facilities, Fridge Coffee etc. Well placed in Lee Vining with restaurants close by. Only criticism is no breakfast, which we got at all other hotels on our trip for same price or less. But this would not stop me staying again or recommending for a short stay.
