“awesome view of bass lake and nice room!”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

I recommend to visit this place if you have a plan to go Yosemite!
I'm a visitor from SF. Few weeks ago, I used a sweet room which is located just infront of the bass lake and pine forest. and I had great time in here. the reasons why I like this place are first, I really impressed by wonderful view of pine forest and bass lake. it was just awesome!! second, I love small spa and fireplace inside of my room. the spa made my body to relax and fireplace made my room to keep warm, so I could have a deep and sweet sleep during I used the room. third, breakfast of the hotel restaurant which one just near by sweet room was really delicious! you can eat great food with great price. (I remember that every food on the menu were around 10 bucks.)
+ I wanna come this place again in summer because I heard that the view of bass lake is more beautiful in summer than winter.and also can enjoy water sports on the bass lake.

Room Tip: room which has a good view

The Pines resort is located right next to the bass lake. So we were able to enjoy the great view at our room and we were truly amazed by the beautiful view. We spent two nights. The service was grate. I especially like the size of the bathroom. Bed and carpet were really clean and also the other stuffs. The restaurant served grate food. Everything was grate but the best part of this resort was the wonderful view that we could saw at our own room. We weren't able to use the swimming pool this time because of the snow. But we are planning to stay at The Pines resort this summer again and looking forward to use it. It was such a grate time and give a big thanks to The Pines resort for serving the grate service to us.

Held our annual company Holiday Party at The Pines Resort and had a wonderful experience. The staff was very helpful in organizing a block of rooms to accomodate all in the group,even with last minute changes. The catering staff prepared a very delicious meal and the ball room was beautifully decorated and the flow of the room worked with our entertainment (DJ, Casio Night and Photo Booth). Will definatly hold future company events at this beautiful resort.

Located at a beautiful location, we loved everything except the room. The Lake facilities were wonderful. The room was average overall but the TV wire was broken as was the alarm clock. Parking is limited and we did not have a spot near the room. Also, the room was not available at check-in time and the front desk was not overly concerned that we had driven about 4 hours to get here and had to wait an additional hour before getting in to the room.

The cabin is bedroom down stairs and living room / kitchen up stairs. The bedroom was cold and in serious need of updating, the bedding felt like plastic. The bathroom was small and freezing and made me feel like I needed another wash after showering in there. The living room / kitchen was fine but the balcony could have done with some nicer furniture. We ate at Duceys and the food and view were lovely.

Room Tip: Avoid the cabins

The honeymoon suite is spacious, well kept and quiet. And the off-season rates can't be beat! Great view, great food, friendly staff. Looking forward to going back!
