Stayed at this lodge instead of Ahwahnee hotel as that was full. The lodge is not in the park and it takes an hour to drive to Curry Village. The property you can see was purpose built and caters to the family crowd principally. It is trying to be a lodge but does not have the history.
The rooms are spacious but dated with popcorn ceilings as are the bathrooms. The fitness room is small, but the spa must be a newer addition as it is quite good. The restaurants cater to families principally with that style of food. They have one decent upscale restaurant in Embers. The swimming pools are good.
The prices they charge to stay here are very high for the quality of accommodations. Next time spend the money at stay at Ahwahnee.
