4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Hotel was right outside the park gates so easy to come and go. Rooms were defiantly dated and could use a little freshening up. We had a river view and it was beautiful but a little noise. On site restaurant was so so but you don't have much to choose from.

My wife and I stayed here for a few nights shortly before Christmas 2015. First, the good points: The location was excellent - very close to the entrance of Yosemite Valley, less than 10 minutes drive away. The room had a small kitchen area so, if you wished, you could prepare and have breakfast or any other meal in your... More

Very pleased this time after being sorely disappointed last trip! Friendly check in. Good sized rooms. So close to the park, if park accommodations are booked! Only downsides the paltry blankets and very thin towels. But, the shower was great! Pretty clean too! I could have done without the ridiculously gross piece of sponge to wash dishes with..ugh. But, rest... More

My husband and I stayed here in January 2016, but have stayed here on numerous occasions in the past. The reason why we like Yosemite View Lodge is it is so convenient to the entrance of Yosemite National Park. It's about a 25 minute drive from the hotel, to Yosemite Valley. The rooms are very clean and include a kitchen... More

I booked through their website and encountered no problems. Stayed two nights in January with my hubby and our little Yorkie in the Maple building. Pros: five minutes to the park entrance, 15 minutes to the Valley. Our dog was an extra $10 a night. A kitchenette allowed us to cook and save on meals. Front desk staff were helpful.... More

Convenient place to stay to visit Yosemite, less than 2 miles from park entrance. Although the lodge has two places to eat - River Restaurant and Parkside Pizza, we had to wait a long time to get a table and get some food. Either they are short staffed or restaurants are too small for the lodge. All room come with... More

Front desk staff was friendly and welcoming; as was the dining room staff. The hotel looks like it would be modern; but furniture and bedding needs some updating. But all I needed was a place to shower and warm bed to sleep in for the night. So this was a great place to stay for a last minute need.

Stayed here as part of a tour. The location is fantastic - just outside the entrance of the park. The accomodations; however, were disappointing. The carpet was filthy (my socks were black just from walking across the carpet), and two of the four towels I was provided with were soiled. Unfortunately others in the tour group had similar experiences. Would... More

My husband bought a Groupon for two nights, so our expenses may have been lower than others experienced. Our room faced the river which raged by our patio just steps away. We knew our room would have a kitchenette and we brought all of our own food, so we didn't eat at the restaurant and I can't comment on the... More

We stayed at Yosemite View Lodge over Thanksgiving (2015). Our room was old and dusty but it was spacious and I was very happy that it had a stove, cooking utensils, microwave, and mini fridge. Not all of the rooms have the jacuzzi tubs- ours just had a shower. It was very close to the Yosemite park entrance. There is... More
