Our stay at the Yosemite Lodge was affordable, valley was quiet and quaint. Some things are closed in winter, but enough is open to stay comfortable. Cabin room was warm and comfortable. Falls we're running with ice formed around them every morning. Buses and hikes were not crowded. All staff were great, very helpful. Food was a bit pricy at... More

Comfy room, hiking trails just a few steps or shuttle ride away, fantastic view of the falls. Many food options and great people watching. We avoid the spring-break and summer time, Yosemite is at it's best very early spring, winter and after Labor Day. We've been visiting for years, usually staying in Housekeeping but now prefer a little comfort after... More

We had an outstanding experience at the Yosemite Lodge last weekend. The staff and service was friendly and professional and the newly updated rooms comfortable, clean, and attractive. The Mountain Room restaurant dining experience also was great -- the food is very good and well priced, and the service is excellent.

The angles of the units make it hard for neighbors to intrude. It is all about quiet solitude and peace even though the walls are thin. I saw deer grazing in the early morning right from my second floor window. Parking was plentiful and going on hikes was easy. The refrigerator was a big help. Missed a microwave and could... More

Such a wonderful destination. Was very relaxing stay at the Lodge, great dinner options for families or for couples wanting an nice evening out, and as always, the sights and scenery are beautiful at any time of the year.

Arts & Crafts meets National Park efficiency and utility with rustic charm and thoughtful touches. We enjoyed the room and the property overall. We managed our food budget by bringing our own breakfast and lunch. You can't cook in the rooms though, so if you are trying to be frugal, you must make do with what you can concoct with... More

After long days of hiking, the Lodge provided a great place to relax and stay warm in the Yosemite winter time. The Mountain Room was a nice place to dine for dinner (salmon cakes were delicious). Only issue was that the walls are thin. Neighbor told us they can hear our whispers.

Have stayed at the Ahwahnee several times. Beautiful yes, but way over-priced for the small rooms and a national park venue. The Yosemite Lodge, after its recent room overhaul, is a much better value. Currently, the Lodge's Mountain Restaurant is certainly the equal to, and often better than the Ahwhanee's Dining Room. Stay at the Lodge, dine at its restaurant,... More

We stayed in the lodges and they were very tired. We couldnt get the heating right and the towels were old and thin beyond belief. the carpet was a sludgy brown and it all felt very 'ordinary' and therefore overpriced. i appreciate people staying in yosemite were there to walk and otherwise be outdoors, and thats exactly what it felt...
