There is not much open in April, and we slept well- although my husband kept telling me that the room smelled like an old woman's house. WiFi was spotty at best. Staff were adequate. Not far from Mono lake, and the only restaurant that was open in this town...

i have stayed here many times over the years. Off season the rates are good and accommodation is pleasant and uncomfortable. But I think it's beginning to show its age and requires some updating and investment. I don't think the rooms and carpets have been changed for many years and they would benefit from this. But otherwise, friendly and helpful... More

It was a one night stay over the weekend with friends. Great price for slow time of the year. January since the tioga pass is closed for the winter. Town was very quiet. Staff not so friendly and a little demanding on the way they wanted certain things handled. I don't know about you. But if I'm paying to stay... More

My family and I just stayed at this lovely little place this past Saturday night. The Lake View Lodge, was so clean and tidy. The town is pretty much shut down for the season but we were very pleased with the accommodations. Will stay here again.

During the first weekend of January, we rented 5 rooms at the Lake View Lodge. We found the rooms to be clean, kept up well and warm. The WiFi worked well. However, the Lodge stated that they have to use satellite internet because there is no DSL in Lee Vining. It is a short walk to the market and to... More

The rooms are like from back in the 50's. One of the last hotels seemingly to be using old keys. Everything inside is dated. The room is clean and the bed is comfortable. They claim they have high speed internet, but because of the location Wi-Fi is marginal at best. Parking is easy and usually near your room. The hotel... More

We stayed for just one night on our return from Yosemite. The booking in process was easy and was nice and welcoming. Good size clean room and comfy bed. Great shower with lots of power to help the waking process in the morning. Nothing to fault and all at a budget price. WE had no problems with the free internet.

Internet very flaky and variable, but free. Clean, limited number of TV stations. Very quiet. Be sure to see the tufa towers on nearby Mono Lake; drive up Tioga Pass to see the mountains. No refrigerator or microwave, but did have a coffee service in the room. To eat, try Nicely's down the street, or head over to June Lake.

My wife and I recently stayed here for 1 night on the way from Yosemite to Death Valley. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and were given a downstairs room which was a bit basic, but spacious and reasonably furnished. Sound insulation was an issue as we could hear people in adjoining rooms and, especially, from outside where the car... More
