Surprisingly Noisy due to proximity to the road and shabby rooms. Reasonably priced , patchy wifi. My wife really disliked it but I would'nt be so harsh! Food was not good, however pleasant little gazebo in the grounds

We really enjoyed our stay in a rustic cabin at the Tioga Lodge. We stayed in unit 4- the Rosa Mae room. The lack of TV, radio, and phone was refreshing. So was a dip in the antique tub and having a cocktail on the bench on our private front porch- couldn't quite see the lake, but most rooms can.... More

We stayed in Lee Vining only one night to view Mono Lake. The Tioga Lodge is located right across the street from the lake with a partial view of the lake depending which cabin you're in. We had a nice view and sunrise from our "Kit Carson" room. Kit Carson room is a duplexed cabin with the other side being... More

As my husband and I were driving past Mono lake it was sunset. We were hungry, tired, and knew that soon we would be in total darkness with 3 hours of driving still to do that night. Then we passed by Tioga Lodge, with it's cute cabins, lovely gardens, and sign declaring "Food, lodging, wine and beer". In about a... More

We stayed two nights at the lodge. We enjoyed the location and many things about the place. It was clean and adequate, especially given the small number of choices in the area. It's noisy being directly on the main road through the area. I was not expecting a luxury facility, but $244 for a two night stay is not an... More

Tioga Lodge is very accessible if you are planning to visit Monolake or Yosemite NP. The price was a bit higher than expected. We were 5 of them so paying $180 was ok, but might be higher if there are not many in the group. One can have a very good view of mono lake from the room's windows, but... More

We stayed here one night on a road trip from Colorado to California. We wanted to be close to Yosemite for a drive over Tioga Pass the next morning. It was a good location for us and after a long day of driving, it was nice to be able to just walk to the hotel restaurant without having to get... More

The room was adequate but expensive. There is a view of Mono Lake but the room is right on the highway so I didn't feel like sitting outside and looking at the lake from the room. The highway is loud. The person who checked us in was more interested in making sure we would pay for any damages than in... More

The lodge has a great location for those who leave Yosemite at the Eastern Entrance/Exit. Room and food prices are reasonable. They have a family-style, cozy restaurant. Staff is nice and supportive. Our room was simple, but clean and spacious.

We stayed here for a night and the stay was very pleasant. We had the cottage to ourselves, which was quite compact and cozy. All the stuff inside the cottage were very antique. The air condition didn't work and the bath was really un-comfy to get in and out. Yeah, the bed was extremely small for 2 people. This place... More
