4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Good place for an overnight stay. Small, very dated room but clean. Good location near restaurants, Mono Lake and entrance to Yosemite NP. Very friendly staff. Pretty gardens by the outside seating area was lovely. Staff cleaned room while we were at breakfast before we checked out. Was not happy about that!

We were put in cottage 8 and had the view of the main lodge and the back of the Lee Vining market. I didn't see one room or cottage that would have a "lake view" but maybe it exists. Additionally, the curtains in the cottage didn't cover the entire windows so we were paranoid that the place behind us could... More

We have been here only for 2 nights, but we are pretty satisfied with the service. The room is clean and the reception staff is very kind! It is situated on the main street, but not far away from the Mono Lake. Very nice!

This was our second stay at the Lake View Lodge this year, and the first in one of the cottages. While the cottage was cute and roomy, it had some flaws. The metal blinds on all 3 windows were bent, but did close. The shower floor seemed to be permanently stained. Wi-fi doesn't reach to the cabins, so you have... More

This place is nothing special but there isn't much choice... The fellow in the reception was really not helpful, but one can't judge a whole motel based on one person. Overall we were quite happy with the Lake View Lodge.

Nice location and grounds, but don't let them put you in room 15. No view, the door is in a dark unlit hallway! The front window looks into the water heater/utility room, and the broken side window looks into an alley and into the garage for the store next door! Beware, there are other hallway rooms of this type.

This hotel is a very convenient stay on the way to/from Yosemite from the east. While rather old-style, it is in a very good state of repair, with clean, large and comfortable accommodations, a comfortable bed and friendly staff. There's a café on site, and a couple of restaurants in the village, but not much is going on here.

We stayed in this hotel last week after stopping by a couple other hotels in Lee Vining. It's probably the largest hotel in town and there aren't many options so it is a bit more than other places in town but worth it for the lovely landscaped property alone. We spent the evening in their well manicured gardens where there... More

It's the first motel in Lee Vining when leaving Yosemite. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was average size, big bed - had a peaceful sleep, could hear owls during the night (which was a nice change from streetlife in the city). WiFi ain't the fastest nor is it always available. But who needs it with Mono... More

There is not much choice, so this is probably one of the best places to stay. It is clean and the rooms are large with 2 sinks one outside the bathroom. Lovely gardens. It is an old hotel but well maintained. Not much supply so prices are quite high for the property. It is very close to the Tioga Pass... More
