The walls were thin. I had a second floor room and could hear people walking upstairs.
I found the lodge over priced for what is offered. The food was overly expensive, but decent fare. I believe all restaurants use the same kitchen. Menus are similar in all their restaurants. The plank salmon and rainbow trout were very good. Their specialty bloody Mary had everything in it except the kitchen sink. Asparagus spear, onions, sweet pickle and carrot sticks. Different but distracting to say the very least.
The indoor swimming pool was overly chlorinated.
A $40.00 fee for early check in or late check out was more than a little tacky.
The website implies a four or five store experience. The actual Lodge does not. It's old rustic with a lot of unused meeting rooms. Might be great for kids, large groups and or dogs but not for a romantic getaway.
But remember you're going to Yosemite and there's not a lot of options in the area. Comparatively it's probably one of the best accommodations.
