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

Have stayed at the historic Wawona Hotel in Yosemite NP many times over past 40+ years. Never have been disappointed. The hotel is old, consisting of several buildings. Some rooms are with shared bath, mostly private bath. The Hotel is in need of substantial restoration but I personally doubt this will ever happen due to our Federal Gov't posture on... More

Beautiful place to relax for a few nights in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Enjoy a cocktail by the fireside while listening to live piano music. Sit on the veranda and breath in the fantastic mountain air.

My husband and I have stayed in numerous NP hotels/lodges. We've never been awed by the experience.. but the parks are so worth it. We were pleasantly surprised by our brief stay at the Wawona. We had just spent 3 days in a cabin with friends at Hetch-Hetchy..and wanted a night to ourselves before heading home to the bay area.... More

An under-the-staircase toilet in a closet with no wash-basin; the wash-basin in our room (108) was clogged and wouldn't drain, the food was ordinary and far over-priced, the walls so thin we were kept awake by the squalling baby along the walk and then woken to the gastro-intestinal evacuations of the guests in their toilet in the room next door...

This is our third visit to Wawona. We stayed for 3 nights in the Moore Cottage. We like the old-fashioned flavor of the Wawona, and we prefer to be away from the madness of Yosemite Valley. Our room and bed were comfortable, though we didn't spend much time there except to sleep. I wish that the dining room had more... More
