“Ok”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Location is great, room was clean and Ok. We had no problems here. Maybe the price could be lower. Accommodation was without breakfast. Lee Vining is very nice place to stay, next to Mono Lake. Internet was Ok.

Clean, good value and friendly staff ... Stayed one night coming from Yosemite, and wanted to see Mono Lake..great location and well run .. Very good price and the staff was very friendly and helpful... Nice setting, beautiful landscaping and room was spacious with good free wi-fi service... Worth the price

This hotel is well positioned on the shores of Lake Mono, near to Bodie and Yosemite. It is quite expensive but that is probably because of the limited accommodation in the area and it was disappointing that the wifi coverage was poor and limited to the reception.
The room was good and clean. There is a coffee shop in the grounds for breakfast but we didn't try it, instead we ate locally - there are severla options.

Arrived late in the afternoon on our way between Death Valley and Yosemite.
Helpful and friendly reception staff who were aware we were coming. Very down to earth place. Nothing fancy but we liked it all the more for this. The site overall is a little spread out and a bit like a back yard bit we found out barebones cabin easy enough. These cabins are really basic but clean, tidy and comfortable and offer a refreshingly simple alternative to motels. There's no TV, fridge or coffee maker, just a cabin with a bed in it - and that's about it. Outside, there's a small yard area with a BBQ pit and a picnic table that we made use of later in the evening in a break from eating out.
The bathrooms are separate and shared with other cabins. This is more of a campground than a hotel/motel don't forget, so the bathrooms are very functional but, like the rest of Lake View, entirely adequate.
The on-site cafe was ok for breakfast next morning. Not a huge selection but good enough.

Coming from Reno and wanting to visit Yosemite, spending the night in Lee Vining is the best option. Be sure to check out Mono Lake as well. The Lodge is fairly expensive for what they offer but the location is rather remote and not a lot of competition I guess. The property is nicely maintained with a garden at different levels and benches in the shade. Coffee sold in the adjacent shop at the third level pretty good. Room spacious enough but very dark, worst of it all is the noise from the other rooms. Walls are super thin and the ceiling seems to be made of cardboard. You can hear everything from your neighbours. Wifi did not work, not even in the reception. Staff very friendly.

Spent a night here en route to Yosemite from Death Valley. We just wanted somewhere to spend the night before an early start into the park. For this Lakeview Lodge was fine. We had a standard room which was reasonably priced. It was clean enough. Maybe a bit outdated. Th fridge made the most awful buzzing sound which was remedied only by unplugging it. But overall it was fine. Comfy bed, quiet, ok bathroom & shower & a decent sized room.
The room notes said that wifi was available but would only be accessible in the foyer but we found we could access it in our room as we were reasonably near the lobby.

Room Tip: Get a downstairs room near reception - wifi works in room & you don't have to haul luggage u...

On a recent trip to the Eastern Sierras, we stayed three nights at the Lake View Lodge in Lee Vining. The location was great as we went to many nearby sights: Bodie, Devil's Postpile, Tuolomne Meadows, etc. The grounds of the hotel are lovely, flowers everywhere. The staff was kind and friendly. The rooms need work. We knew not to expect luxury, but the room we stayed in had the bedroom behind the sitting area WITH NO WINDOW. We had to devise a fan to blow some air into the sleeping area. The Wi-Fi was intermittent, at best. If you stay, do not accept room 22!!

Room Tip: Do not rent room 22
