The location is good - about a 15 minute drive from the Mariposa Sequoia grove and about an hour from Yosemite valley, and the surrounding area is nice. The rooms were a good size and clean, but bathrooms were further from the room than we expected, and you have to walk along a veranda. The "continental" breakfast was disappointing so... More

Grand, elegant, majestic hotel existing to provide guests with excellent food, beverage and comfortable rooms in the area that started the entire national parks system. Fantastic, friendly staff, beautiful location, located in the park but outside the valley (which is so crowded now during the summer). The perfect place to stay and enjoy a romantic getaway or a stay with... More

Wawona is located in the southern end of the park, about an hour to Yosemite valley. I found the continental breakfast adequate. Hotel space is comfortable and bathrooms are clean. Beautiful hotel and a comfortable stay.

This is a great time for the hole family. There is a great old village behind the hotel and there is also a golf course across the street. There is a small river next to a general store so you can lunch.

We stayed at Wawona for one night. The hotel was quite expensive but definitely worth of seeing. The surroundings of the property were beautiful. Food was really good - I really loved the root bear float! There's no modern amenities in the room and I didn't enjoy the public bathroom but I would still recommend the hotel for a short... More

Our family stayed at the Wawona for the first time this summer and had a great time. It was more expensive then I planned as there are only two options for food (all of which were terrific). Next time we will be better prepared. We are looking forward to visiting it again.

Classic old hotel in wonderful location. Don't expect all modern amenities such as TV or in-room Wi-Fi but enjoy the ambience. Food was excellent. Great pianist playing in lounge way more entertaining than television. We usually see more deer and wildlife but there was a large buck grazing one morning on the hotel lawn.

Excellent choice if you wish to stay in Yosemite. It is a very old building but is well maintained while still retaining its historic features. The setting is great and very quiet. Would definitely recommend!

We've been to Yosemite several times but always stayed in the valley. Coming from the south, this time we stayed one night at the Wawona. Busy place in the summer, although nothing the crowds in the valley. The highlights: We had the room for five people with two queens and a single and it was both quaint and spacious, which... More

We stayed at Wawona Hotel for 3 nights in Mid-May. This lodge is in the park, but is not in the Valley. They say to give yourself an hour to get down to the valley…in mid-May the traffic was light and it only took us 35 minutes to the valley floor and 20 to Glacier Point road. There are lots... More
