We stumbled on this hotel purely by chance as we had intended to stay in Yosemite but it happened to be the week before 4 July and it was really crowded in there. We drove out of the south gate and stumbled across the unlikely named hamlet of Fish Camp (population 200) which has 2 hotels. We called into the Tenaya Lodge and we just hit lucky as they were wanting to fill their last few rooms. They gave us the honeymoon suite for a walk in price that was still at the top end of our budget, but we had the most magnificent room. Huge bedroom with huge bed, you could lose your groom/bride in that. Bathroom nearly as big again with spa bath, wall to wall walk in shower, separate room in the bathroom with toilet. The hotel itself has 3 restaurants to suit all pockets, and outside terraces where you can take your drink and sit and listen to the silence. We just could not fault the whole place, it was just superb. It is probably very expensive but if you want to spoil yourselves, that is the place to stay. You may even get lucky with a walk in rate.

The picture of the lobby is great, and it looks great in real life, but the great part ends there. We were locked out of our room twice. Imagine standing there waiting to get items from your cabin to leave for the day, being delayed a long time while the staff makes several attempts to get you in your own cabin, only to be told the entire lock needs replacement, and we were eventually told the cabin would not be locked while we were away (my computer, etc. inside). No compensation for our delay was offered. The breakfast food was okay, but dishes and silverware had a lot of standing water on them. Yanni-like music was played fairly loudly during breakfast (CDs or cassettes are on sale in the lobby). Everyone was looking around at each other wondering if the music was supposed to put us in some sort of nature-lover mood for a day at Yosemite, it was annoying. Lobby landscaping was appreciated, until it was realized that the very noisy gardening tractors start zipping by our windows at 6:30 AM. Cabins were in poor condition. From the look of the baseboards, no painting had been done in the last 20 years. Carpets were highly stained and bathrooms were old and dirty. Screen was missing from bathroom window. The location says 2 miles from Yosemite, but this is the south entrance. Please realize it is a 1 hour drive along a very curvey road to the Yosemite Valley, which is where most tourists want to go. I will not return and hope that you make a better choice than I did!

Spent one night at the apple tree in fish camp ca the first week of august. Everything from check in to check out was great. This inn is a small place with quaint cottages. We had a bottom level, which is actaully ground level, room with a great deck overlooking great scenery. It is located right next door to the tenaya lodge and there is a walking path to the tenaya from the apple tree. It is about a 7-10 min walk door to door. We walked over for dinner and i also went over for a latte inthe morning. The buffett breakfast was very pleasant with bagels and cereal, etc. The Inn is about a 40 min drive into the south entrance of yosemite park. Wished i'd had more time to enjoy this inn.

My husband and I and our two daughters aged 18 and 16 stayed at the Tenaya for 4 nights on the 25th of July. First impressions were the rooms need to be re decorated. carpets were stained and worn. Back door into corridor was not locked ever. Pool is lovely but is very crowded with small children at times. I could not get over how many children were allowed to scream and jump into the pool, whilst their parents sat and watched. No thought for the adults trying to get some peace and quiet. Ok, it was high season...at times the pool was quiet and this was fantastic. Pool does not open till 9 am which is strange. Ate at the Jackelopes restaurant every night. Not great food, service bad at times. were given free drinks twice to make up for it. Expensive !! Ate at 8.30 pm to try and avoid families with small kids. Location of hotel is perfect tho, just outside the south entrance, but go into the park early, we went in at 9am and there was little or no traffic..great. My husband had stayed at the hotel 7 years ago and he reckons it has not been decorated since so it needs to be done. We paid $300 a night. If they upgraded the pool area, and made a separate pool for adults it would be even better. By the way there is a little grocery store in Fish camp just minutes away, but when I went to buy some stuff, the guy who served me was the grumpiest man I have ever come across. We still talk about his attitude. Never went back. his loss.

Fantastic Hotel! The rooms were a reasonable size, but the beds were incrediable - such a good nights sleep.

At the southern entrance to the park, a bit of a drive to the valley floor, but great views along the way.

The pool was fantastic, and the facilities were top notch.

I read reviews saying the food was overpriced and not that good, we ate in the bar restaraunt and had the opposite experience, reasonably priced, and very good.

Lovely atmosphere, great location, would definatly stay again, probably for longer!
