Cabin was small, but cozy with bathroom and kitchenette. Location is right in the small town of Lee Vining and walkable to the mono lakes visitor center. Onsite cafe closed, but Latte Da is only a couple of blocks away with good breakfast sandwich and coffee. Close to hikes around June Lake loop and Tioga pass which had great Autumn... More

This is an older property which seems to have recently been remodeled. The paint, carpets and furniture are new, the beds are comfortable and the bathrooms have new fixtures. Rooms are very spacious. No breakfast, but a restaurant and also a grocery store are next door. Three caveats: they still have bedspreads (no duvets) and use keys and WiFi is... More

I stayed at this hotel because it is located at the East entrance to Yosemite National Park. Basic room, clean, TV all the necessary amenities. Free wifi IF you can get it. This is located in the mountains (7,000 ft) so I don't blame the hotel. The town is small with a great little restaurant a half block away. There... More

We arrived without reservations, so only had a choice of 3 single-story attached rooms across the highway from the main hotel. Since restaurants were within walking distance, this seemed OK. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean, and backed to a field, with a view of mountains to the east and the propane tank outside. Although... More

After a long drive from Vegas, and unable to follow our given route because of snow, we came across Lake View Lodge and booked in. It was comfortable, clean and spacious, with a lovely rural location and a peaceful atmosphere. The village is very quaint and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, with good food at the nearby diner and breakfast... More

We stayed here for two nights in September 2015 prior to backpacking in Yosemite. This is not a fancy place, but it is a very peasant lodging in the small town of Lee Vining CA, near Yosemite, and on the shore of Mono Lake. The motel room we had was spacious and clean. They also have a variety of other... More

The room is larger than most motel rooms - has an extra alcove where it's easy to leave suitcases open and hang up clothes. It was clean, quiet and comfortable, and right next door to a food market, which was helpful to us. There's a fridge, hair dryer and other expected amenities. The desk clerks were friendly, and I'd definitely... More

It was the best place for relax after a long hard and wonderful day in Yosemite National Park and before a long trip to Las Vegas via the Death Valley. Two bedrooms, living room connected with kitchen, bathroom -- the house fully furnished for tired travelers. And with the help of supermarket, close to the hotel, we've made very good... More

As some other reviewers have pointed out, it's not a flashy hotel. The rooms are a bit old. I was in 27, which had a kitchenette attached, and was above the reception area. Both staff members I dealt with were charming and friendly. The room had no view - I'm sure others do have a view of the lake or... More

The place is adorable! We stayed here one night on our way from Lake Tahoe to Yosemite. They offer hotel rooms, cabins, and cozy cottages, we stayed in a cottage and it was just perfect. Parking right out front, and enclosed private patio, bbq amenities, front porch with a couple of chairs. Inside was almost just as spacious as some... More
