Being able to sleep inside the park was incredible. The rooms are comfortable, however the walls are too thin, so they are a bit noisy (depending on your neighbours, of course). The hotel is expensive and so is the food in the Food Court, but we knew it in advance. The park and the views are stunning!

All of the comforts of home, refrigerator, big bed, wifi and several food option right out your door. And best of all the park is unbelievably beautiful. We were only there for 2 days and can't wait to go back.

We stayed here for 4 nights just before Easter. The location is second to none . We booked 7 months in advance, and I think we paid Over $1600 for the stay. The hotel itself is a little basic for the money, but if you go with this mind, you will be ok. It sure beats the other option, of...

We needed a place close to Yosemite and El Portal . We came for a wedding and this was where the best location was for all the activities. Our wedding group rate of $170.00 a night gave us a sorta updated room ( Somethings were new, most just covered up problems) Which brings me to my title. Every faucet dripped,...

We should have been staying at the Wawona but could not get there because of snow falls... (apparently this is often the case that the Wawona cannot be reached) so we were lucky to get a room at the Yosemite Lodge. The staff were helpful in getting us our money from the Wawona transferred (not sure this has happened but...

Made reservation five months in advance, and called the Lodge directly multiple times before arrival to confirm accommodation room types (Kings). Upon arrival, they said they did not have any of that room type! When I protested, the guy behind the counter (AJ) said it was my fault because we requested rooms close or adjoining and no King rooms are...

This is by far the best place to stay if you plan to visit Yosemite National Park. Friendly staff, good customer service, and you can't beat the location. You pay for the location, not the room so don't expect luxury accommodations.

The accommodations were pretty rustic, but it's in a really great location. The walls are super thin. We could hear everything in the room next door, including the guys' burping and throwing beer cans across the room. Most disappointing was that we paid for balcony which turned out to be a small patio that mostly fenced because it was up...

We were pleasantly surprised to be in our own little quad building unit, nestled in the forest and right across the road from the waterfall. We had a private patio table and chairs just outside our door where we could sit and enjoy nature. The staff was very helpful in getting us upgraded to a king-size bed which really helped...
