“Great Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Second time staying at this resort and both experiences were great. What I like best about it is the activities that the resort has to offer. We were there at Christmas and it was magical. Great for Children. Took our grandson for a truly magical holiday experience and it was wonderful. He went sledding had dinner with Santa, decorated cookies and Mrs. Clause read a bedtime story to the children before they went to bed Christmas Eve. The resort also distributed Christmas stocking to all the rooms Christmas eve full of goodies. In the summer they also have similar activities for the quests such as hay rides, etc. Rooms were clean and nice, The restaurant food was a bit pricey but Oh Well, We had a great time!

We just got back from the Tenaya. It was only about a quarter filled, which was perfect. Though there weren't that many people - we could easily see how difficult it must be when the hotel is more filled. The walls are paper thin, we could hear clear conversations from the next rooms. Had to sleep with earplugs. It really seems like the hotel is catered towards kids. Who were LOUD. Running the halls, screaming, crying. If you're not into kid noise (we're not) this would not be the hotel for you. It worked for us ONLY because it was off season, cannot imagine when it's full. The restaurant told us that when it's full the wait for dinner is 2-3 hours.

That being said, we had a really nice time. The food was delicious and we are vegetarians. As soon as we got ear plugs, it improved. I would go back, NEVER when it's crowded. It's clean, new and really nice employees.

Room Tip: Best to be on upper floor, downstairs floors can hear people stomping around upstairs. Sounded like...

Hello, and thank you for your thoughts. You've touched on something that we want to highlight -- Yosemite National Park a four-season destination, but the highest levels of visitation occur during the summer months. Experiencing Yosemite in the fall and winter can offer a deeper level of engagement with its wonders; highly recommended! And, we're pleased that you found our vegetarian dining options were delicious. And, we're sorry if you encountered a few little guests who could have used a bit more parental supervision. Thanks again!

This rather expansive property is about a mile from the South entrance to Yosemite. That means it is still a good 40 minutes drive to the Yosemite Valley Floor. Fortunately, the hotel has lots to do - at least it did in January when we were there. There are sledding hills, archery classes, guided hikes, and an ice rink. There are a total of four restaurants on property as well as a coffee shop. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The new cottage rooms are spacious and homey with a gas fireplace and a balcony. The walls were a little thin, however, and the noise from people in the unit above and next to ours was distracting and lessened the homey cabin-in-the-woods feel.

We stayed at Tenaya Lodge in September 2012. We stayed here as it was a perfect location to go into Yosemite national park and explore the beautiful landscape this hotel is set in. We didn't stay in the main hotel, we stayed in the cottages surrounding. They were set in stunning grounds, were extremely clean and tidy and spacious. We used the pool every day after exploring to wind down and chill out. We even walked to the pool in our dressing gowns that were provided. It has an extremely relaxed environment. We ate in the restaurant that is attached to the bar on the 2nd night and the food was lovely. The staff were attentive and could not do enough for you. The pizza parlour was also great, we had pizza in our room on the 1st night and relaxed on the balcony, the pizza was lovely. So nice we went back on the 3rd night. Again the staff were brilliant, I had salad and pasta which was lovely whilst the rest of our party had pizza. I don't think there was a scrap of food left. If you are planning on visiting Yosemite, then I would highly recommend this hotel.

I've just spent some wonderful days visiting Yosemite National Park during winter and staying at this place was part of that. It is a simple hotel with fireplace, friendly staff members and pet friendly. The restaurants were nice, as well as the indoor pool. Intersting to take the horse drawn sleigh ride, with a stop for hot cider and marshmallow.

We opted to stop here for a few days between San Francisco and relatives in Auburn during the Thanksgiving break. Close to the park, and the conceirge helped us figure out everything to do during our brief stay there. The day trip to the park was awesome! They had recently put in the full spa, which was wonderful. We treated ourselves to massages and the masseur did put me to sleep.
The fact that they have an adult only restaurant is special. One of the other restaurants that is more of a sports bar, has a separate area for children so that adults can enjoy more of a relaxed atmosphere. The convenience store had all of the essential items needed for a quick breakfast before hitting the road.
They lodge was getting ready for Christmas and they were in the midst of decorating it while we were there. Can't wait to return next year!

The buffet breakfast is incredible with something for everyone. Fresh fruit, yogurt, eggs, bacon, you name it, it is there!! I highly recommend it. For a fun afternoon, be sure to do the romantic picnic. It includes snow shoes for two, a beautiful picnic lunch in a great backpack that you get to keep. The walk is amazing! Go down by the little creek and soak in the beauty around you while enjoying your picnic together. A great adventure! Then come back and enjoy a good book by the roaring fire in the lobby. Sipping a warm latte. Life can not get any better! Enjoy!
