We recently stayed at Yosemite Lodge for the first time. In the past, we've stayed at the Curry Village cabins, which I prefer. The Lodge rooms are decent sized with ugly decor. The room had a fridge, but it froze our food. The room did have a great shower with good water pressure - we were in a one-story building.... More

The DNC reservations site does a poor job of describing this motel as I did not see any mention of there being no AC! It was 102 degrees each day we were in the park and there was no relief at the Inn following a full day of taking in the park's offerings. Plus, this motel cost $250 per night... More

Our room was GROSS. Bathroom Not clean. Exhaust fan had hanging junk from it. Poor service, asked for housekeeping to clean bath and fan on day 1. When we checked out on day 3, still there. Needs major redo. No low-flow anything. Major waste of resources. Very Hot in room. We brought our own fan, but didn't help much with... More

We stayed at the Yosemite Lodge at the Falls in June of this year and have to give a mixed review. The location cannot be beaten for access to the park, programs and amenities and we had a spectacular view of the Falls from our room. The room was one of the newer, updated rooms and there is a major... More

You cannot beat the location, which is why, despite the poor condition of the building (Hemlock) and room, I would probably stay here again. The carpet in the hallway is quite worn and in need of vacuuming. The entry door to the building is in need of cleaning and is not secure. The floors and steps in the stairwell are... More

Like most other reviewers, I made reservations 1 year in advance. As I could not get a room on Monday, we stayed 2 nights in the Evergreen Lodge (fabulous) before arriving in the Valley on Wed. Check in is 5pm, but if you arrive early, it will give you a chance to scope out your room location and switch rooms.... More

The only thing going for The Lodge is the location. You can't check in until 5PM, or at least that's what they say. You might get in early. Even the worst hotels let you check in at 3PM. This way they sell more tours when you are forced to wait around with kids. There is no water! No drinking fountains... More

We planned this vacation 1 year in advance. This was our last long road trip with our grandchildren (our oldest is 17) We tried 5 years ago but fire in the park prevented us going and we were planning on staying outside the valley. This time we decided to stay in the park and we are glad we did! We... More

First, you need know that you should book a year in advance (which I did) because this is a very popular location and a much better rate than the Ahwahnee. We stayed four nights in the Hemlock building which was a "green room" like another reviewer described. We had a queen-size very comfortable bed, padded sitting chair, small table with... More

Spend four nights there with a Road Scholar tour. Room was good. Facilities near by. Free shuttle stops in front. Heard that it is hard to get a room. Not many choices in the park.. Surprisingly they had tv and Internet. No AC. warm in the afternoon. Food choices limited, but survivable. Enjoy the park. It is great.
