Recently remodeled rooms are very very clean. Bed mattress is standard hotel model and could use an upgrade. But, the room price was the lowest in the area. So, I still can not complain. The American style diner next door was super good with a friendly staff and high quality diner food. The location to the Yosemite north gate is almost the best in the area.

Room Tip: All the rooms are about equal. But, the rooms on the east side are the quietest.

We stayed here the night before our sunrise engagement photo shoot in Yosemite. We needed an iron/ironing board as that was listed as an amenity on their website. When we arrived, I couldn't find it anywhere in the room. When I called the front desk, all I got was "It should be there, I don't know what to tell you". Ok?? I asked if I can get a replacement from another room as they own both Buck Meadows Lodge and Yosemite Westgate Lodge. All I got was "I can't help you". Very disappointed as I thought this was a great location outside of the park! We ended up having to change our outfits because of this and it was such a bummer.

Escape405091: We want to extend our sincerest apologies concerning all the issues that you have faced during your stay. Please note, this is not the kind of experience we want to offer to our guests. I will personally talk to our housekeeping staff regarding this incident and will get back to you. We do have ironing boards and irons that the front desk can provide for these rooms--they are smaller rooms so unfortunately we have no place to have them installed the room.  I hope you give us the opportunity to host you again on your next visit to Groveland.  Sincerely, Buck Meadows Lodge Management

Honestly covered all our needs for our family of four, rooms and bathroom were clean, adequate water pressure from the shower, microwave and fridge more than enough for our needs! The Lucky Buck Cafe next to our room had great food and charming service, while the amenities from the Westgate Lodge were available for use (pool, ice, play area). Check in is at the Westgate Lobby, that’s slightly confusing but easy to figure out. Overall super awesome property close to Yosemite entrance!

We had the cabin and it was so nice to be removed from the main hotel crowd, especially during this Covid time. It's small but enough room for 2 adults easily. Great staff and very attentive to any concerns we had. We appreciated that responsiveness very much! Perfect location to visit many spots in the Yosemite area. Hetch Hetchy, Yosemite valley, hiking and water spots! And the on-site restaurant is very good with great staff as well. Everyone's working very hard during this Covid time to keep us all safe and taken care of.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two day stay. We loved the room and location near Yosemite and Hetch Hetchy hiking areas. You can also catch YARTS right there. The restaurant onsite was great also, we just called from our room and walked over and picked it up. During this covid there is only outdoor dining, but we had a private table outside of our room that was great. Staff was very kind and helpful. There is also a nice pool but we did not use it.
