The owner is a very nice lady who informed us that their well went dry a week ago because of the drought. She offered us a discounted rate, provided bottled water in the room and a 5-gallon bucket of water to refill the tank after flushing the toilet. It's adorable place and the owners have done a lot to fix... More

The Lodge is very close to the road and the lodge we stayed in was basic but comfortable. The lodge did have a restaurant on site which offered Breakfast and evening meals cooked locally,. though we only stayed one night so we did not taste the delights. The rooms were clean and I thought they were okay, my daughter thought... More

We have the stayed here 3 times because we feel for the price it is a reasonable value. So here are the pluses and minuses. Pluses: most rooms are a bit cheaper than other rooms in Lee Vining with easy access to mono lake and going into the Saddlebag and Tuolome Meadows for fishing. It has gorgeous Mono Lake views....

This is a pretentious, awful place. We were told the price was high because the rooms are "historic." We had to sign a lengthy contract and expected to find a cozy, comfortable room. Instead, we discovered that the room was noisy, right next to highway 395, and the beds are uncomfortable. The furnishing is cheap and fairly tasteless.

We were tired after traveling through the Yosemite meadow and Tiogo Pass and this and another motel were rated the same in Trip Advisor. The rustic cabins would not be bad if the beds were more comfortable and the noise from the highway were abated with some sound proofing. I like a firm bed, but the bed in our room... More

We stayed here one night. The motel consists of a number of "cabins", some of which are interconnected. The rooms were clean and the furnishings are rustic, seemingly hand-made from local logs and wood. The bed was reasonably comfortable, although the mattress squeaked loudly whenever anyone moved on it. The motel is right beside rt. 395 and can be noisy,... More

We stayed there because we wanted to see some of the local sights the next day, after leaving Yosemite. It was late, we were tired/it was the only room in the area. While there is something to be said for historic locations, that's the best we can say. It got down to 40 degrees, there was no heat, no blankets... More

Driving back from the Bay area to Denver, for some reason my in-dash GPS took me through Yosemite National Park. I got a late start that day and found myself after dark in Lee Vining and decided to spend the night. All the other hotels in Lee Vining were booked. I was happy when I drove out of town and...

Beware of the cancellation fee which is NOT fully disclosed on their website! I looked on the website for the room cancellation policy before booking a room and only found the "room cancellation request" link which does not disclose a penalty for room cancellation. I booked a room for two nights about 1 month in advance expecting free cancellation as... More

Their photos are accurate, some rooms have a great view of Mono Lake especially # 1 & 2. Nice flowers and a little creek. It is clean and the furniture is rustic pine. We had to wait to check in and then the sprinklers would not allow us to enter our room for some time. The porches are nice but... More
