I travel often so I learned to read trip advisor before booking anywhere. You must not expect resort quality in this town, it has only a few lodgings and dining establishments and one store. You can walk the entire town in under 20 minutes. It is a fairly remote location, yet very near Yosemite Park, right on Mono lake, so... More

We stayed in cozy cabin15 which had a kitchenette with the necessary cooking supplies & dinnerware. The bathroom was roomy, but the shower was quite small. We kept bumping into the water valve changing the temperature (careful hot is very hot). The mattress was sunken in the middle, very uncomfy. But the place was cute. A nice porch with chairs... More

Basic motel right on 395, but room was quiet. Overpriced for an average place, but it was middle of summer so I didn't expect a "deal". Staff was very friendly. Room was typical small motel type. No view of Mono Lake, but just had to walk around for that. Appeared to be the best in LV.

Location is great, room was clean and Ok. We had no problems here. Maybe the price could be lower. Accommodation was without breakfast. Lee Vining is very nice place to stay, next to Mono Lake. Internet was Ok.

This hotel is well positioned on the shores of Lake Mono, near to Bodie and Yosemite. It is quite expensive but that is probably because of the limited accommodation in the area and it was disappointing that the wifi coverage was poor and limited to the reception. The room was good and clean. There is a coffee shop in the... More

Arrived late in the afternoon on our way between Death Valley and Yosemite. Helpful and friendly reception staff who were aware we were coming. Very down to earth place. Nothing fancy but we liked it all the more for this. The site overall is a little spread out and a bit like a back yard bit we found out barebones... More

Coming from Reno and wanting to visit Yosemite, spending the night in Lee Vining is the best option. Be sure to check out Mono Lake as well. The Lodge is fairly expensive for what they offer but the location is rather remote and not a lot of competition I guess. The property is nicely maintained with a garden at different... More

Spent a night here en route to Yosemite from Death Valley. We just wanted somewhere to spend the night before an early start into the park. For this Lakeview Lodge was fine. We had a standard room which was reasonably priced. It was clean enough. Maybe a bit outdated. Th fridge made the most awful buzzing sound which was remedied... More

On a recent trip to the Eastern Sierras, we stayed three nights at the Lake View Lodge in Lee Vining. The location was great as we went to many nearby sights: Bodie, Devil's Postpile, Tuolomne Meadows, etc. The grounds of the hotel are lovely, flowers everywhere. The staff was kind and friendly. The rooms need work. We knew not to... More
