These rooms are all alike, same architect. Spacious, with large windows. Near to Lower Yosemite Falls. Only two beds, king, or ADA available (not one Queen) if trying to book these rooms. Hairdryer, one pot coffee maker, extra pillow, blanket, space heater, air fan, iron included. Parking is an issue from 9am-6pm, because of day use visitors. Recommend park it...

The location is fabulous, right next to Yosemite Falls as for the rest there is room for improvement. The rooms are so gloomy and dated, by changing the brown walls to something lighter would make it feel like you weren't living in a cave. The food court was chaotic and staff really couldn't have cared either way, it was hard...

First, do not visit Yosemite on a weekend. The traffic in Yosemite valley just to get to the hotel can take 1 to 3 hours just to go a few miles. All cars are pushed into 1 of the two lanes going into the valley. The other lane is saved for the park shuttle. So, one lane is standing traffic...

We had a wonderful stay here. The room was nice and cozy and we could sit out on our patio and see Yosemite falls (we asked for the view room and booked a year in advance!). Absolutely spectacular location right in the heart of the park. It is very busy here and parking your car next to your room can...

Unspectacular room, but outstanding location. The accommodations are just OK, but access to the Park is amazing. Bring a bike if you can, for each person in your party if possible. It's absolutely the best way to explore Yosemite Valley where traffic can be a nightmare. Plan a trip to Tunnel View, or Glacier point on your last day, sfter...

We frequent national parks a lot. And we prefer to stay in the park at the concessionaire lodges and hotels. Yosemite Valley Lodge is okay. It provides a convenient location in the valley with easy access to shuttle buses. The food was surprisingly good, compared to the previous concessionnaire who ran the lodges and dining options. In regards to accommodations,...

Expect rustic room decor and you won't be disappointed. Our room was always clean after we left in the morning and came back later. We stayed in Laurel and had a corner room, so it was pretty quiet once things settled down for the night. The bathroom was very tiny but the shower was nice. I liked having a sink...

The park itself is what people come to see here. The lodging is decent but you pay dearly due to contract arrangements with service providers. Check in was slow and finding our room was not as easy as portrayed but the little village is nice and close to the Falls. The food however leaves a lot to be desired along...

It's all about the location - less than 1/2 mile from the fabulous Lower Yosemite Fall, with a view of the Upper Fall from the parking lot and some of the rooms. Few amenities in the rooms, but the comfort and decor have been updated in recent years. I found the mattress to be quite comfortable. All rooms have a...

This is an incredibly easy place to stay within the Park. It is very close to casual and finer dining and to the Park's tram and bus service. This clean and rustically designed and furnished lodge is nestled in the beginning of woods and offers one a great spot from which to enjoy bird song. If you are looking for...
