We just got back from a 2 night stay from Feb 8 -10 th and loved our time there. We lucked out because it had recently snowed and the scenery at the lodge and Yosemite was beautiful. We did the sleigh ride this morning and recommend it. There was a kiddie sledding area on premises and a short walk away had another great sledding area.
This lodge is a family-friendly haven. You won't find a better place for kids anywhere in the Yosemite area. There are 2 pools (one outdoor seasonal and one indoor, which was very warmly heated), an arcade, a kids club, an ice skating rink, and a variety of family-friendly activities scheduled. For adults, photography classes/tours are an option and there is an elegant spa where my husband received a great foot massage.
We stayed in the Spa Suite and defintely recommend this upgrade as the rooms are in a quieter location, have a balcony, are bigger and there is a jacuzzi tub for after long days of hiking, etc. Our room was clean and seemed to have new carpet. After reading some prior reviews I was worried that there would not be enough hot water to shower or fill a bath, however we never had a problem. Perhaps because it was low season?
I don't know how I would rate this facility if it was during a busier time. We never had a problem with getting seated or served quickly at the restaurants. It wasn't very loud, although it is true the walls don't seem too thick and some parents let their kids run amok with no restraints. I did sleep with ear plugs because the people next to us had a noisy kid. I can imagine it being far more noisier during Holidays or the Summer.
This didn't bother me, but the Tenaya seems to be a pet-friendly hotel, so please let reception know if you have any allergies before you book a certain room.
Overall, we would definitely return! For the Winter months, it's a great location to Badger Pass.
