This was a good hotel. We stayed for two nights. We did a trip with Discover Yosemite as the hotel’s trip was fully booked. Great trip and we saw a bear. Guide was great. Nice outdoor pool to relax in when we got back. It was our 25th Wedding Anniversary and the hotel sent us champagne, fruit, cheese and biscuits as a surprise. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

On the positive side —- beds comfortable, rooms clean and well equipped.

Housekeeping and exterior staff and wait staff very good.

Negatives— charging a resort for a non resort facility.

It’s close to Yosemite but obvious it is not in the park. There are few trails but there isn’t a hiking map, just a handout with approximates. No true trail markings. Not best way to enjoy the natural wonders that they advertise.

Cottages as pictured online not at as is. Ours looked out to parked cars and sitting area next to cars and road — not in wooded section. Tried to find better. Would have been happy to change after one night as well.

Cottages noisy. Could hear all steps and bathroom use from upstairs unit.

Front desk needs more training. Not friendly. Not best way to start.

Currently, I think The Tenaya is overpriced. Some very nice staff, but not consistent. My husband agreed.

I understand they are building more cottage units. I think they need to get consistent with what they have first. Insulate and improve areas of existing cottages. And need better training and follow through of front desk staff.

I don’t very often give 5 stars for hotel reviews but Tenaya Lodge was a very special stay for us. It had everything we were looking for - friendly staff, very good room with comfy bed, great pool complete with adults only hot tub, a choice of three restaurants and a very relaxing ambience.
We also managed to buy a few birthday and Christmas presents in the very good gift shop which was a bonus!
We came for Yosemite but left with wonderful memories of a great two day stay - as well as the awesome Yosemite National Park of course.

We stayed for four nights in mid May, not the cheapest of hotels but most aren’t around Yosemite. It has two restaurants, one you need to book, the other one Sierra restaurant is used for breakfast and evening, they also have jackalopes bar and grill, which we used a couple of times, drinks quite expensive though.
There is also a shop and a souvenir shop, and a concierge room who will help with any queries about the area.
They have and indoor and outdoor pool ( the outdoor is heated). We never used the indoor one, too many kids in it.
The view from our room was crap, all we saw was a small roof with satellite dishes on, and that was a deluxe king room, we queried the view, maybe get a better room, and we were told the deluxe kings have restricted views( not good)
It takes about an hour to drive to tunnel view, so you need to get up early if you want to get to a car park at the valley ( they get really busy, the entrances were closed a few times while we were there due to the amount of cars) go early to glacier point as well, that car park gets crowded. The hotel was ok, but we found everything too expensive

Hello and thank you for your review of Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite! Yosemite Valley can get very busy in the summertime. We encourage guests to either book our Yosemite Tour and leave the driving to us or to utilize the YARTS bus and the free shuttle on the valley floor. Getting up and starting your adventures early is another great way to beat the traffic! We hope that you thoroughly enjoyed your vacation and hope to see you back again soon!

We visited the week before Memorial Day to avoid crowds and it was worth it! Good location, friendly staff, nice indoor and outdoor pools, hiking trails, close to the park and Tesla charging station!
I especially enjoyed outdoor hot tub after all day visit to the park.
Jackalopes Bar and Grill serves tasty food and we highly recommend it!
The only ‘complaint ‘ I have is that I would recommend hotel puts people with small kids on the ground floor because it gets pretty noisy in the room below from kids running around in the morning.
Overall, it was a good trip!
