“Great value...amazing view of Yosemite Falls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Yosemite Lodge is a value during the Fall and Winter months. The Lodge's rooms are very spacious and up-to-date. Second floor rooms have decks that allow you to have a great vantage point to possibly see wildlife early in the morning, before the crack of dawn. Later in the day you will be able to see the evening stars.

The Food Court, restaurant and lounge are within the facility. The food is a little pricey and okay. Mini fridges is all rooms. A grocery store and laundry on site.

Park your car and enjoy the free shuttle that stops by every 20 minutes to take you to attractions around the Valley. If you have a few hours, either take the Yosemite Valley bus tour (2 hours) from the Lodge.

Great way to have a relaxing trip and enjoy Nature's beauty.

Stayed November 2012, traveled with friends

Yes, the Lodge is expensive. But the location was so perfect, the room surprisingly clean, and the bed so very comfortable, that I would stay here again! The staff was also very helpful and polite. And you can't beat the setting!

Room Tip: Book far in advance. But if you don't, do not give up. We got in with a last minute cancellati...

My sister and I spent 3 nights in early November in the newly renovated room 4404 in the Cottonwood building at the Lodge at the Falls. The receptionist at the front desk went out of way to provide a renovated room since we were not initially assigned to one. Actually she said it was partially renovated. Cottonwood is a one story building with probably 8 or 10 rooms . It is somewhat close to the street but there was no problem with noise. I liked the location since it was close to the central dining and reception area and close to the exit out of the lodging complex. The room was very large, 2 queen sized comfortable beds , table and chairs, fridge, good shower flat screen TV- well it was exactly what we needed ! I wouldn't stay anywhere else because of the location, location location AND the amenities of the room. check out my pics ! We can't wait to return in the spring to check out the waterfalls

Room Tip: Fall is a wonderful time to visit - the foliage was amazing !

One look at our room showed that it was an older decor, but it was clean and spacious (for two people). Since this was our first time in the park, we didn't know what to expect. The matress needs to be replaced, but other than that, no complaints. We visited in October, with sunset about 7:30, so we spent more time in the room than we would have in summer. The front desk people were very patient and helpful, even with long lines of bus tourists. In the food court some of the staff treated us like a part on an assembly line, but most of them were friendly and courteous. Overall, our experience at the Lodge gets a B+ and we'll definitely come back.

The hotel was in need of a major make over, the rooms are very dark, the decor is extremely dated and the beds too soft. I visited Yosemite 20 years ago and the hotel appears as if it has not had any investment in that time. On the positive side it was clean and warm (the nights were a little chilli). Catering facilities were mixed, the main canteen at the hotel was average to poor; the bar food was very good as was the service. The other hotel staff attitudes are mixed from polite and helpful to surly and rude; the later being demonstrated by staff at the visitors information desk. Considering the price was representative of a four or five star hotel, but in reality it is only a two or three star, the value was very poor.

The national park itself is beautiful, with various trails some suitable to to the novice ranging to some that will challenge the more experienced hiker. If your in to rock climbing you will be spoilt for choice. Due to the time of year we were able to visit there was not a lot of water about, with the some of the streams and the falls being dry,

Back to Yosemite Lodge for our annual visit, we were delighted with the renovations done to our room. New furniture was in good taste and moving the refridgerator to the closet and substituting a flat screen TV (unused by us) made for much more space in the room. We liked the curtains, carpets, bathroom sink and bathroom floor. All was clean and service was much better than usual (though telephone was broken). The park was beautiful and almost empty. We had more autumn color than in years though still are concerned about global warming. We had an excellent dinner (with not great service) in the Mountain Room, a wonderful breakfast in the Ahwahnee and adequate pizza twice in our room from the cafeteria. We think the change makes the Lodge above average and combined with the spectacular beauty and peace of Yosemite, a wonderful place to stay (the Ahwahnee is now about $500 a night). We try to catch the low season rates which begin in November.

Room Tip: We prefer quiet rooms far from the central area of the Lodge.

We stayed 3 nights here this past week. Great location for valley hiking and sight seeing. Our room was looking quite worn out. Carpets need replacing, beds were uncomfortable, blankets had tears, chair wasn't worth sitting in, bathroom grout wasn't clean and found a cockroach in the bathroom. When there is little competition I guess you can let the place go and stil get $200 a night.
