January 2009. We got in around 1PM and asked for a falls facing room on the 2nd floor. Room was good and updated enough. However you have to check back periodically to see if the room is ready yet. They really only guarantee 5PM. Ours wasn't ready until 5:45 so they kicked us a 10% discount. We tried to get... More

I am writing in response to a suggestion from one of your employees at the Food Court of the Yosemite Lodge. On 24 Dec 2008 at approximately 0800, I was in line for breakfast. When I was next, the cashier (light brown hair worn up, glasses, middle-aged) said in an angry tone, “Looks like we’ve got another one” and she... More

These are basic rooms in a pretty fantastic setting, which is all you really need if you're at Yosemite to hike. If you think you're going to have a cozy getaway, this place will probably disappoint and I wouldn't recommend it. Anyway, the beds are comfortable, the room was warm even when the night was cold, the shower was great.... More

If you're expecting basic motel type accommodation then you won't be disappointed. We checked in at 1100am on a weekday and were given a corner ground floor room which looked out onto a clearing surrounded by trees. The room was basic and quite dark but it was clean. A big bonus was that we saw deer and had direct eye... More

You are paying for the location here. I'd say the hotel is a little above a Motel 6. The towels are those hard, scratchy ones that are thin and cheap. The bed was not that comfortable. The furniture/decorations are outdated. That being said, the location is all that matters in Yosemite. By the end of the day, you are so... More

As most other contributors have said , this place is all about the location and that is excellent . The place itself is functional but the cabins have all the facilities you would expect. Ask for a first floor room for a better view. The main buffet restaurant to fine - reasonably priced although quite busy at peak times .... More

The Lodge provides motel style accommodation (not particularly well equipped) but charges a premium price because of the superb location - you can see the Falls from the car park. Having said that, our room was OK and all the staff we encountered were helpful and friendly. It might be worth knowing that although there are no coffee-making facilities in... More

As many other reviewers have said the Lodge is in a great location. This was my first time to Yosemite and I am so glad I stayed in the Valley otherwise we would have wasted so much time driving in and out. Yes it is overpriced and the accommodation is pretty basic but there aren't many other options in the... More

My wife and I booked 4 nights in the Yosemite Lodge. We have visited 5 national parks now and always stay inside the park if there are in-park accommodations and I can easily say the Yosemite Lodge at the Falls is the worst hotel inside a national park we have experienced... and I would stay there again given the chance....

The hotel markets itself as being "at the falls", but unless a team of lumberjacks starts chopping down a few thousand trees, nobody is going to catch a glimpse of the Yosemite Falls from their hotel room here, although they are only 10 minutes walk away. The location is great, at the entrance to Yosemite Valley and in the middle... More
