We stayed here for a girls weekend in June. Having stayed in national park lodges before, I didn't want that old park "rustic" experience so chose this spot just outside the Wawona entrance. Staff are friendly and helpful. Restaurant food (as a captive audience) was good but VERY expensive, even for breakfast. There's a coffee bar (like Starbucks) for grabbing quick snacks, which worked well for breakfast on the go.
Rooms were comfortable (including bathtubs) but showed signs of wear, especially in the bath. Rooms overlooking the pool will have noise which is even louder when you open the window to get fresh air.
They do multiple weddings here every weekend in summer on the beautifully kept grounds, so be prepared for that (parking, restaurants, lobby, etc.). The spa was very nice - great service with prices that rival the most expensive places at resorts in other parts of the country. They no longer accept SpaFinder gift cards which was a surprise to me, after receiving one as a gift that I couldn't use.
Gift shop had Aventura shorts, dresses and tops in stock - nice find! And other decent souvenirs mixed in with the usual tourist items.
Room rates were the biggest shock - nearly $400 per night for a basic room that we booked 6 months in advance. It's high season and there are few decent options so just be prepared. In all, I spent as much on a weekend here as I did on international travel earlier in the year.
