“The rate might just change”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We booked the hotel online and the full payment was taken. However upon check-out we were told to pay a few dollars more. (not much money but seems odd) So i was asking the reason for it, was told ohh sometimes its more sometimes its less. (What?! -- but why?! -- was it other tax we were not aware of or something else?) Anyway, we ended up pay the extra in cash as i did not want my card to be charged again as i did not want to attract another lot of international transaction fee.
Other than that incident, our stay was pretty good. Yosemite was absolutely beautiful, and this lodge was in a great location, walking distance to lots tracks, had a restaurant and a cafe with descent food. The room was quite comfortable.

We have stayed at the Lodge many times. It's not fancy, but comfortable, reasonably priced, and with friendly service. We come in Winter. Like an earlier poster said, we prefer the Azalea building, but haven't always gotten it. It is the most conveniently located and updated. Second floor rooms are best. Birch has thin walls but is also close to the lobby and restaurants. The Mountain Room restaurant is good and reasonably priced. Service can be slow, and it's annoying that they don't take reservations for parties of fewer than 8. Why? The food court is fine for breakfast, but I don't like the atmosphere. Bright lights and noisy families. The Mountain Lounge is cozy for a snack and drinks. I love the free coffee. I love the free bus to Badger Pass in winter. Mostly, I love the location and the quietude of Yosemite in Winter.

Stayed two nights at the Yosemite Lodge at the Falls. Travelled with very dear friends. The Lodge is situated at the base of two waterfalls. Gorgeous views of El Captain peak (even on a rainy cloudy day!) The room was spacious, with high ceilings and big window and little balcony. Room a bit worn and in need of a bit of re-model. King bed quite good. Cafeteria type food court restaurant across the way. Decent food/reasonable prices. Four Free coupons for coffee, teas or cocoa given to each couple at check in. Excellent strong coffee (Peet's). We walked to the very nice Historic Ahwanee Lodge- too pricy for us to stay at. But we were able to have happy hour beers/wine in the lounge in front of the massive fireplace and had an excellent Sunday Brunch in their magnificent restaurant- $25 + p.p. but well worth it.. amazing food and choices and the waiter did not rush us. Did not need lunch that day. Because of the rain, my friend and I booked massages in our rooms with a professional masseuse who has been travelling to the Lodge for years- came with their own massage table- very professional and very well worth it. We split an hour and a half massage. The guys hiked in the rain.

Room was fine- location was the biggest plus. Being in the park made it easier to explore and do our own thing.

Unfortunately the level of Hotel service was dependant on who was at the front desk. Some were great, others not so. That said we'd still come back & stay!

Stayed there for two nights in early December. We asked for a renovated room and was given one. It is spacious and cosy. No problem with the parking as we stayed in the Dogwood building. Though it is a busy place, it has all the convenience like food, shuttle bus stop and within walking distance to the fall. At night, there are talks held at the lodge. Will definitely stay here again.

The room we had was updated, clean, with comfortable beds and a nice bathroom with a great shower. We even got to see wild life just outside our door. The staff was friendly and very helpful. If you stay here, remember to look up. Be amazed by all the beauty that surrounds you.

Our room was clean, modern and tastefully furnished with vey comfortable bed, mod cons including flat screen tv, nice bathroom/vanity area and good heating. Free shuttle bus runs from the lodge and it is short easy walk to Yosemite Village and oh so close to the Yosemite Falls. Location really can overcome lots of negatives but this place, in terms of accommodation didn't have any negs to overcome. There was a small mix up with our room allocation as a result of a computer outage earlier in the day and a manual check-in that wasn't recorded properly but it was fixed quickly and new room allocated in 5 mins. We were there in Winter so had no problems with queues. The food court was ok for a good feed after a day out hiking and doesn't pretend to be any more than that. Didn't try the restaurant as wanted to get out to the ice rink so no time for a lingering meal. We were expecting very basic accommodation given what we paid and how close it is to all of the sights. We were VERY pleasantly surprised.

Room Tip: Try for a room in Tamarak or Dogwood. They are away from the madding crowd and very quiet. Especial...
