Is located in in Yosemite park close to the famous redwood forest. Very cosy hotel and surroundings. Swimmingpool. Very small rooms. Friendly staff. The complimentay breakfast was very unhealthy (all sugar), so you should count on spending USD10-15 for ubreakfast if you want a decent meal.

My wife and I loved our stay at the Wawona. Great vintage charm, beautiful hotel, many visitors from all over the world, and location inside Yosemite. Cannot be beat, and the price was very reasonable.

Restaurant hours are really limited. You might want to bring some food with you or you may go hungry. We arrived late Friday night to find the restaurant closed at 8:30p on a Friday night! Luckily, there were 4 menu items available in the bar/lounge until 9:30p - so we did get some dinner. Next day, the restaurant closed 3-5p... More

I enjoyed this hotel and the location was nice in terms of scenery. It's a little too far from the valley for me but we chose this hotel as it was cheaper than the other 2 choices which are situated In the valley so you get what you pay for there. I couldn't really complain about anything at this hotel... More

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.
