Although it's a good hour from Yosemite village/valley "action" this hotel has enough character, peaceful relaxation and charm to make anybody a convert. Half the rooms have share baths, this fact can spoil some people's idea of fun, but for me it just adds to the historical ambience. It's the real deal. The wooden floors on the wrap around balcony...

When we planned our trip to CA (Yosemite National Park, San Francisco, Sonoma, Napa), we were late in finding accommodations in the Yosemite park area, not realizing how popular (and expensive) this destination can be. Hence we booked at the historic Wawona Hotel, and were pleasantly surprised. The history of the hotel, it's quiet location and grounds, and the casual... More

The price per room is not cheap when you compare it to other hotels and the amenities you would get for the same price. But at The Wawona Hotel what you are paying for it's an experience - what that experience ends being, is up to you. I enjoyed my experience, but I did my research so I knew what... More

We stayed here for three nights on the ground floor at Washburn Cottage, room 5. It was built in 1900 and there is a veranda all along the ground floor, with chairs outside. We had our own bathroom. The woodwork was painted cream. It was a big enough room with a King size bed. We had booked twin beds, but... More

The Wawona takes you back in time. High ceilings, Victorian furnishings and beautiful scenery keeps me coming back. Close to the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias in the south-west part of the park. Also away from the crowds in the valley. A wonderful visit as usual.

What a wonderful experience we had on our first visit to the beautiful Wawona. The hotel was beautiful, with pictures of the original owners. A roaring fire in the beautiful fireplace. Sitting in the parlor listening to Tom Bopp sing and play the piano was a treat beyond measure. Just loved it.

Overall a very good experience. Staff was friendly. Food was good. Hotel room and common bath house was clean. Atmosphere was relaxed. WiFi was good when working. The only major drawback was that we could hear our neighbors next door as if they were in our room. We did know this might be a problem from other friends who recently... More

Wonderful historic hotel. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Enjoyed sitting on the large porch sipping wine in the evening and watching the sunset. Stayed in the Annex, with shared bath and shower room on lower level.

We had a marvelous time. We felt well cared for. Beautiful facility and grounds! The food was excellent. My husband has celiac disease and it was no problem at all for him to get gluten-free food options. I recommend staying in a ground floor room if you are carrying any food - especially an ice chest - with you, as... More
