We decided to leave for our Yosemite trip a day earlier and staying overnight in El Portal so that we could get into the park and start doing park activities as early as possible the next day when our week in the park began. The Yosemite View Lodge has 4 pools, plenty of hot tubs, 2 restaurants and is a great location for getting in to the national park. It was around 100F outside and having so many pool options was great in terms of nothing being overcrowded.
The rooms were kind of standard motel rooms, but I guess they all have decks/patios and great views of something scenic. The A/C blasted out cold air and it would have been useful to have the kitchenette if we'd been staying over a couple of days. The restaurant was decent and the only complaint was that the shelves of the store were pretty barren as we were trying to buy a few things before getting into the park.
I'd definitely stay there again.
