We enjoyed our recent stay for two nights at the Tenaya Lodge. The room was nice, bed was comfortable. I didn't like the (barn door) on the bathroom - it slid but didn't really close off the bathroom - I like privacy in the bathroom. The pool area was clean and we enjoyed the jacuzzi after a day of hiking. The weak link at this property is the restaurant service. I thought the food was very good - but the service was not even average. Long wait to even be acknowledged when the restaurant had few full tables. The bar wasn't any better. We sat outside one afternoon and had to track down a server. As our tour guide told us - it is a view with a room...not really much a view from hotel - but you are very close to the beauty of the Park!

We stayed here for 2 nights to allow us to visit the park and were not disappointed. Having driven further than I have done in one swoop for a long time, with a particularly tortuous last 15 miles, it was lovely to get out of the car and check in to our spacious and comfortable room in the main lodge.
We opted to forego maid service for our stay, and were rewarded with complimentary drinks vouchers, which was nice.
One of the highlights of our stay was the guided bus tour of the park which left at 7.30 the next morning, and allowed us to fully appreciate the views while our guide Andrea von Raeder ably managed the roads and entertained us with her very personal knowledge of the area (she had been born and raised in Yosemite Valley). She was full of interesting facts, and had a delightfully slightly irreverent attitude which was very refreshing! She was a fabulous mimic, too, of a variety of tourists! We returned to the hotel at 5.30pm, tired but well-satisfied. Had we not still been jet-lagged, we'd have considered the torchlight walk to see the night-sky in better detail, but instead just watched it from the seating outside our room.
Food was your average American fare (burgers, chicken, fries) which was the only real disappointment, (by this time in our trip we were craving fresh fruit and vegetables) although the breakfast buffet was a lot better than many.

We stayed just outside of Yosemite National Park at the Tenaya Lodge for 2 nights in one of there cottages. Room was great, coffee making facilities, powerful shower and good essentials toiletries. Set in beautiful scenery and so quiet you could hear a pin drop - total peace.

The only thing that let it down was the organisation of the restaurants. Everyone wants to eat around the same time, but they have the most ridiculous systems where you can’t book, you need to put your name down and then wait with a buzzer. Sounds simple enough, but on both nights it was a bit chaotic !! Guests were clearly in impressed but they have a captured market and I suppose it suits them...

Food is pretty tasty once you are seated, but it just could have been much better.

WOW!!!
Wish we had signed up for more time here! This place is beautiful and captures everything we wanted for our trip to Yosemite.
It's at the start of the park and an ideal starting point for any adventure in the area. The lodge was beautfil, nicely decorated and the rooms were really homely.
The staff were also really friendly and helpful, making everything easy and to our liking.
We ate at the Jackalopes bar, which had a great atmosphere, lots of choice and didn't really hurt the wallet!
The views and location were stunning and we couldn't catch our breath with everything there was to see and do!
What a place and one you could spend more time at, we didn't even get chance to see the indoor our outdoor pool/sunbathing area - yes, it's was beautifully warm!!
Thank you

Room tip: Anywhere!!
