“Yo The View in Central Valley, Truely Amazing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Located in Yosemite's Central Valley The Lodge has motel style buildings and rooms that are exceptional for national park lodging. The unit we stayed in was in very good condition, had superior décor, and was very clean with a private bath. As a second floor (upper level) room it as had a slanted room line and balcony that added to the atmosphere. I would definitely stay here again. In addition, the location was ideal for activities in the central Valley including a 5 mile hike back down from the glacier ridge outlook some 3,300 feet above the valley floor.

This was a first visit to yosemite and we loved it! The lodge is perfect for exploring. The rooms were clean and cute. I found the room to be perfect for the time we were in there. The food court was adequate. The restaurant was very nice for dinner. Madison and Tessa in the food court were so sweet and funny. Keep up the good work. I would stay here again if we are ever lucky enough to return. Amazing place.

The Lodge has improved by leaps & bounds since our last mildew ridden visit. The rooms have been refurbished in a downmarket way. The handicap bar in the shower is a towel rack with a couple of screws in it and the finish is coming off. The towels are really rough and grey. I would definitely bring my own shampoo/conditioner and shower gel.
That being said, it had enough lighting and a custom headboard and 5 foam pillows. (Bring your own if you like feather). There was a small table for two and a refrigerator (mini). The bed wasn't the best/worst we've ever slept in.
The proximity to the office, store, Mountain View Restaurant, & the cafeteria was great,
as was the shuttle stop.
All in all it was great for the $99.00 rate we enjoyed. The park was ablaze in fall colors and we felt
blessed with Mother Nature.

Just spent a few days staying in an upstairs "Willow" cabin in Yosemite Lodge at the Falls. The Lodge is in a great part of the Valley and is mid range in price. The grounds have a café/restaurant (average), a more upmarket restaurant (good food), bar, shop/convenience store, pool and bike hire. The free shuttle bus that takes you around the park stops at the main entrance to the Lodge which is ultra convenient. The rooms were big and clean with heat or air-conditioning. The Lodge Is a great place to stay, for couples or families, if you want to experience the Valley at it's best without a huge price tag.

Room Tip: Upstairs are better and anything to the right of reception is closer to Yosemite Falls and may have...

So you a few places you could stay in the park- this seems like it will be value for money comfort - but it is not!
It has high prices but room quality does not reflect this...

Location is good, you don't have to drive in so can enjoy more time in park... But next time I would spend the extra and stay in the top end hotel which is basically the same location.

It was cold, damp and the room was next to the bins... Yuk!

This is definitely the best location within Yosemite village. It's within walking distance to Yosemite falls, some meadows, dining, and several bus tours are run right out front the lobby. It can't be beat for location. The rooms are very old and basic with very small tvs. We ate most of our dinners in the Mountain Room, the food is much better there than the food court. There is a gift shop in the complex that also has has some groceries for hiking trips. I didn't find the people who worked at the concierge desk in the mornings very friendly or helpful.
