We stayed here on our trip around America and honestly it was wonderful. The rooms are small but very clean and cosy. We had a room up stairs over the reception which looked over the front where the water fountain is. The bathroom facilities were just round the corner and were very very very clean. We read one or two... More

History, hiking, great food and Yosemite all around us. What could be better? The staff was friendly and welcoming. Guests from all over the world. Favorite activities had to be the barn dance and the presentation on Wawona history and music in the lobby.

This survey kept stalling out and I had to repeat parts of it. Fix it. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. I heard that the Yosemite Lodge accommodations aren't nearly as nice. We made sure to get a private bathroom.

Yosemite is a very big park and the location of the hotel can influence your stay. Wawona Hotel is located near the south entrance,near Mariposa Grove and Chilnualna Falls. It is fascinating and romantic but not so easy to handle. I had a room with restroom in common, the room was very nice but very very small and too near... More

After the bright lights of Las Vegas a stay at the relaxing Wawona Hotel was just what we needed. After a long drive we were warmly greeted by the reception staff and very quickly checked into our rooms. These rooms can best be described as quaint but we found them spacious enough for our needs with a comfortable bed and... More

It's like staying at a grand hotel in a rustic mountain setting. Unforgettable and worth a splurge. Very professional and courteous staff, completely relaxing - whether on your own balcony porch or on the verandah in the main building. I took my first steps as a child in Yosemite, went there on the family vacation every summer, and have always... More

I did a lot of research before choosing Wawona. I chose Wawona for our stay because there are no telephones or televisions in the rooms. I loved that I got up each morning and walking to the main building for coffee. The air was cool and crisp and the grounds were clean. The staff was professional without being stiff...they were...

Yosemite is a very big park and the location of the hotel can influence your stay. The wawona is located near the south entrance, on the ruote 41, 30 miles far from the Yosemite valley and about 1.30 hours from the Tioga Road. It is fascinating and romantic but not so easy to handle. We only found a room with... More

We did a lot of research, and mind you we're tent campers, so we knew what to expect at the Wawona. One reviewer said it's like "staying at a museum" -- well, that's the whole point of staying here. The rooms were small but cozy, and the luxurious bathrobes provided were a lovely touch. The dorm-like bathrooms were pristine with... More

Great place, relaxing, beautiful and peaceful. It was my first time there but I will be back for sure. The food is good and the people working there are very nice and kind. You are in a real historical place and you can feeling it. The rooms was so cute and it was much better than other accomodation in the... More
