Unless you are willing to shell out for the Majestic Hotel (formerly the Ahwanee) this is really the place to stay in Yosemite. From our room we could hear the roaring falls, and what a better sound to fall asleep to! The room is an average motel room. Could use more outlets, more hooks for hanging jackets, and more racks...

My biggest complaint..parking. There are NO designated spaces for overnight guests. So if you arrive in the afternoon, and everyone and...

The cabins could use some TLC. But were clean & comfortable. We had a full bed with a twin & they brought in a cot to accommodate 4 people.we had a bath with shower & it was heated. The immediate area had shops, groceries & restaurants. Plenty to do, bike rental & shuttle buses.

With the limited hotel facilities in Yosemite, the Yosemite Lodge is one of our favorite places to stay since it is near Yosemite Falls and Yosemite Village. And with multiple dining options, everyone can find something to eat. Having stayed at the Lodge for over 50 years, it is apparent that Aramark, the current concessionaire, has renovated some of the...

The location is unrivaled, but the hotel itself is quite old and need a face lift. The family rooms are quite small to accommodate five people, and the beds are very uncomfortable. Although understood as being in a national park, some more details and refurbishing will be very helpful for the travelers.

This seems to be the best place to stay if visiting Yosemite (and if the Majestic hotel is too pricey). Large sized rooms and the Yosemite Falls literally just outside. There is a large cafeteria, a dining room, gift shop as part of the premises. Very family friendly. Only gripe is that they use 'real' keys and sometimes, those keys...

The lodge is locate very close to Yosemite Falls in fact each morning as we walked out of the room is was not far for us to look over our shoulder and watch the falls. The room was nice and clean and very functional for our small family of three. You do get a small refrigerator. The maid service came...

The Yosemite Valley Lodge was very comfortable and quiet! My daughter and I enjoyed the accommodations and the excellent location. The beds were very comfortable, and the sink outside of the toilet/shower room was very convenient for 2 girls to get ready. I usually request a top floor location to avoid any noise above, but since no rooms were available...

Few people, if any, stay here for reasons other than the amazing location in the truly amazing Yosemite valley. Yosemite is only second to Yellowstone in hierarchy of lower 48 national parks, when it comes to readily accessible natural beauty. For this reason, many people give this hotel ratings that reflect this and ignore the hotel's other aspects. Frankly speaking,...

We stayed two nights here at the Yosemite Valley Lodge. Our Aspen room was well appointed. It is located in close proximity to the lower falls' trailhead, also to the Yosemite Free shuttle stop #8 which is across from where the checkin is located. Room has a coffee maker, small fridge, heater, fan, and a very comfy bed. It also...

“Second floor would be quieter since first floor would hear footsteps from above. If you want a view of the falls, need to request it.”
