The lady that helped us was nice and I think it's a good concept, but it's just not that enjoyable of a stay at this place. First off, it's right next to a highway, so you hear big rigs driving past throughout the night. The second problem for me was that there was no air conditioning, which seems important in... More

Quaint little hotel right on 395. Yes, it is noisy, but the location is great and the rooms are nicely decorated and clean. We stayed in #13 and #14 and were pleased with the accomodations. The staff was very friendly. We did however run out of hot water, but the people were so friendly, we didn't complain. Did not eat... More

This is a historic lodge located just across Highway 120 from Mono Lake, just outside of Lee Vining. It has a wonderful view of the lake. We arrived early in the season and the hotel had just opened. The rooms are decorated with various themes. When booking your reservation, you can select which room you want. We were a little... More

We have stayed in several Lee Vining motels over the years and this is the first time we've booked Tioga Lodge. It is very basic but clean, tile floors with only 1 throw rug, bed, a couple tables and a bathroom. The porch is nice and you can see Mono Lake but you are 20 feet from the Hwy with... More

The boat tour was wonderful but I had a couple of complaints about the inn. The room we stayed in (#2) needs a paint job (marks on the walls) and some fixing up of the walls in the tiny bathroom. When I booked I was told that the restaurant would be open while we were there. They closed a week... More

After discovering this hotel on the internet, we were a little apprehensive and not sure what to expect. However this hotel was great!! It is just outside Lee Vinning and is on a main road however the views and scenery of Mono Lake were fantastic. We had Room 2, which was quite basic with a small bathroom and no TV... More

We had a comfortable, relaxing stay in room #3, what appeared to be a 19th century house converted to a cabin accomodation, complete with front porch overlooking Mono Lake. Dinner was great, ribs and shrimp, innovative and inspired, with a nice Shiraz. Breakfast was also exceptional; their chef seemed to truly care that we were enjoying our meals and the... More

The Tioga Lodge has been restored to as close to the 1800s as comfort and convenience allows by the historian-owner-craftsman. We sat on the veranda in comfortable wood chairs and watched Mono Lake glow with sunset colors. Inside our cottage, we found hand-crafted branch furnishings and a gleaming wooden bathroom floor. It was like time travel with modern conveniences! We... More

Tioga Lodge is the only lodging available next to Mono Lake. Unfortunatly HWY 395 is between the Lodge and the Lake. However access to the shoreline is just a 5 minute walk. It seems that all the lodging in Lee Vining area is right on Hwy 395 and I think the traffic noise problem is bad everywhere. Our room was... More

We stayed at Tioga Lodge during our recent holiday in California. It is a slightly quirky place - all the cabins have different names and decorating styles, so you don't know quite what you are getting. Having said that, our room was perfectly comfortable, although the bathroom could do with freshening up (new seal on the bath, mouldy shower curtain... More
