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

We stayed for an overnight at the Tioga Lodge on 9/14/14 after driving 500 miles to find they had no record of our reservation at the Lake View Lodge. This lodge only had 5 rooms left and we stayed in the #5 Paiute Room. The website does advise you of the lack of amenities of this property but in case... More

We stayed in the cabin 13 which could easily accomodate the 5 of us. Of course it is a bit rustic but you are not taken by surprise as it is clearly anniunced on the website. Room was clean, bed very comfortable and we had a delicious diner at the restaurant.

We stayed here for a night between Yosemite and Death Valley, we arrived late but were still greeted enthusiastically by staff and offered a home cooked dinner. We drank ice cold beers on the porch with a view of the lake. The lodge was clean with comfortable beds and a good hot shower. Although the road does pass by the... More

We stayed here three nights in the Piute Room. Our room was very clean, the bed was comfortable. Not a luxury hotel by any stretch of the imagination. Amenities were few; tiny slivers of soap, thin little towels and two little envelopes of shampoo, no coffee maker, two wire hangers in the closet, no tv, no phone and spotty internet.... More

With friends travelling from France, we booked this lodge in late October 2013. Unfortunatelly it was during the shutdown, so we were not able to make our journey to Yosemite nor Death Valley. We faced 2 different reactions : 1 - the Death valley lodge we had booked has anticipated and refund our deposit. 2 - Tioga lodge which kept... More

The Tioga Lodge was a nice surprise for us. It is directly across from Mono Lake and has motel rooms and individual little house-type rooms. We stayed a couple of nights in a little house called the Prospector. It was charming, one large room, nicely furnished, including a refrigerator, a large bathroom with a big tub and tiled sink counter.... More

Stayed one night here. I booked just the day before, the lady on the phone said there was just one room left, so I took it and paid the highest price. When I checked in, the sign said there was still a vacancy.... Did I get the most expensive room when there might have been a less expensive room available??... More
