“Affordable elegance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

This was my first trip to Yosemite. The hotel is located only minutes from the South entrance so it is convenient. I was impressed with the decor, the wonderful spa, and the cleanliness. Best of all was the superior service. Not only was the breakfast buffet the best I ever had, but the wait staff were so attentive. I'd go back in a heartbeat!

My husband and I have just spent 3 nights here whilst visiting nearby Yosemite and mariposa grove.
From start to finish I cannot fault this hotel and I am generally quite difficult to please!
The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was decent size, clean and comfortable. We went out of season but still I was amazed at how quiet the hotel was at night - a great nights sleep!
The pool and hot tubs were always empty and very relaxing after long walks during the day. Only downside is that the steam rooms and saunas are unisex so had to use those separately from my husband.
Breakfast buffet was $14 each which initially I thought was a bit steep but there was so much food and it was delicious. Bar staff were friendly and chatty. Evening meals were fine.
One tip, the hotel rent out snow chains for $15 so don't get them anyway else. Also, there are washing and drying facilities for $2 each, v useful.
Yosemite village is an hour away and mariposa grove about 10 minutes. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed 5 nights in one of the cottages. Lovely location, just a short drive to the park entrance and the Mariposa Grove. Friendly staff. Pretty quiet in the evening, not much to do other than go to the sports bar or watch TV. On that issue, they need more variety. The lodge in need of an interior makeover to a degree, but still very cosy and hospitable.

We just loved this place. A good drive from Yosemite National Park but the Lodge is just beautiful, just like a lodge should be. Staff were fabulous, and so helpful. If you have time to go horse back riding, do it. The hotel booked it for us and its just about 2 miles away, you can walk there is a lovely walk through the forest. We can't wait to return in the winter with the log fires roaring and stunning snowy views.

Thank you -- we're glad you took advantage of our horseback riding tour! Please do come back this winter and enjoy the Tenaya Lodge sleigh ride -- and, yes, roaring fires and snowy scenery!

We couldn't believe how nice, cheerful and super-competent the staff is -- except at the Spa, where I had the worst facial of my life, and my friend had a mediocre massage. Stick to the Lodge and ignore the Ascent Spa, for good value, good food. Fabulous concierge.

The Lodge was "Stupendous" finest service I have ever had. I have been traveling since 1946, and Tenaya was undoubtedly the finest service ever. Room was spotless, wait staff were extremely helpful, meals were served extremely hot and flavor of the food was unbeatibul. Went to the Awanhe Lodge for lunch, great food but room was very cold temp wise. Aloha Ellis

Room Tip: Located 1 mile from the entrance to Yosemite, great location , no traffic problems as one will find...

Our stay at the beautiful Tenaya Lodge was great. From the moment we drove up we knew we were in for a nice stay at a classy place. All the staff made us feel welcome and comfortable. Our room was quiet and the perfect place to rest after a long day exploring Yosemite's many beautiful sites. My wife loved the Eggs Benedict and my steak was cooked perfectly and served by a very knowledgeable and attentive server. What can I say, great service, location, room and food.
