I read so many differing reviews on TripAdvisor that I was not sure what to expect. We rented two rooms and they both had had updates. There WAS a refrigerator and a microwave. The bathroom had new tile floors, new counter top, etc. there was a new flat screen TV. WIFI in our room was acceptable, not the strongest of... More

We chose the town Lee Vining because of its proximity to the Western Gate into Yosemite Park and settled on this motel after reading Trip Advisor reports. We weren't disappointed. Room was clean, well equipped and decorated with free wifi. We paid £47 (sterling equivalent) for one night in a queen size bed. What a bargain. Would we stay here... More

We arrived in Lee Vining quite late after travelling from Las Vegas through Death Valley for most of the day and found the town about to shut down for the evening for a power outage. This meant that we had to dash out for food before the restaurant closed and pretty much left us with little time to research for... More

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
