This was our first time to visit Yosemite – 3 nights in all – and we decided to use Wawona for 1 night as a base for the southern half of the park. We have rarely been so disappointed in one of our choices. The logic was good but were relieved that we had only stayed for one night and... More

September is a lovely time to stay at the Wawona Hotel because of the warm days, cool evenings and cool mornings. Sleeping was pleasant with the windows open and it wasn't difficult to go to the rest room or take a shower knowing that you would not be freezing on your return back to your room. Wifi was only present... More

Beautiful grounds bear a meadow trail and only 6 miles from Mariposa Grove! About 45 minutes to Glacier Point but such a beautiful drive. Felt like you were back where times were simpler. Wifi not in rooms, had to walk to a lovely sunroom/patio, but that allowed you to meet new people from all over the globe. Wonderful porch set... More

This hotel is very much a mixed bag, which is a shame, since it could be great if more money was invested in it. The hotel itself is quite tired and worn looking, and it is obvious that not a lot of money is invested in it. The green public spaces are exceptional however, and it is a great place... More

This is THE most relaxing and beautiful spot on earth...it even has the greatest 9-hole golf course thrown in! I've been coming here for years and it NEVER disappoints. It's great for family or couples.

The Wawona is a lovely hotel, with a beautiful old-world feel. Although the lodge has been extended over the years, it is difficult to tell as it has been done so sympathetically - the wing we were in was 50 years newer that the original part, but it was almost identical externally. Similarly the public areas are in keeping with... More

Located on the "quiet" side of Yosemite, this spot is a gem. Lovely old hotel with lots of character and caring staff. Sharing a bathroom isn't everyone's idea of fun, but they were very clean each and every time we entered them. Looking forward to returning!

A beautiful and gracious hotel. It's a peaceful location set in the woods away from the bustle of the Valley. You can golf with deer - don't worry about lugging your clubs; you can rent them there. It has convenient shuttles to the Valley all day long and is only a 10 minute drive to the Mariposa Sequoia Grove. I... More

Stopped along the way as we were taking a road trip. Breakfast and coffee was great. Service a little slow at first but once we got it it was great. Beautiful old hotel, the grounds are really relaxing. Didn't get to stay this time maybe next time.

For a fairly high price, we had to share a bathroom, one tiny room, and deal with $24 fettucini Alfredo. Their service is fine. The location is actually 45 minutes from yosemite valley, but if you want to see the sequoias and wawona point, they are easily accessible. The sequoias are majestic, and Panorama Trail is absolutely amazing, a must... More
