Stay at the lodge, such a great price, wonderful rooms and immediate access to the trails. Yosemite Point above the upper falls was the highlight trail, went at sunrise and saw no people and lots of wild life. November is a great time to have the place to yourself.

Great experience to get away and experience the great outdoors yet the amenities at The Yosemite Lodge at the Falls. I almost wish it were a secret. We had a super time whether we were hiking or relaxing, it was great!

Comfortable lodge walking distance from Yosemite Falls. Nicely landscaped with room to park, close to restaurants and shops, quiet with emphasis on nature. Comfortable, clean room with ground floor patios, walking distance to river, fields, close up views of the cliffs and falls, the great meadow and wildlife. Friendly staff, good food, comfortable bar with fire pit and casual menu....

I'm at the age when camping doesn't seem as much fun as it once did. the Lodge at the Falls is a great alternative, with comfy beds, rooms with views of the valley and its wildlife, and with easy access to food, without having to worry about bears/racoons getting to one's food stash. The location is lovely; near the shuttles...

This November was my 2nd trip in the park this year and every time I go the experience seems to get better. The staff at Yosemite Lodge was very accommodating and very helpful. We were there with a wedding and had lots of friends and family gathering at the bar, rooms and restaurant. They were so wonderful and took great...

The facilities at Yosemite Lodge were good and clean. The only negative was that our back patio was facing the road and was noisy with traffic much of the time. We enjoyed the proximity of the Lodge to either venture out for hikes around the valley floor or catching the shuttle to access other areas of the valley.

We have been visiting Yosemite for over 40 years, camping early on but now staying at the Lodge. Our room accommodations were excellent. We saw deer right outside our room on three different occasions.

Yosemite Lodge has a great location, but be prepared for marginal housing and food. I don't know where all the money they have collected over the past 50 years or more has gone --but someone needs to put $ back into the property. We were sent to our first room and it was soooo dark and dreary on a sunny...

The is the best place to stay in the park location wise. The rooms are pricey, but nice and clean. Even though this is a big place, the check-in and check-out were quick and efficient. Not many food options and internet is very slow. I am glad I chose this place.
