“Really enjoyed my stay here.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Whilst on a Fly-Drive holiday in the States, after setting off from Las Vegas and driving through Death Valley heading onto Yosemite, we run out off daylight and needed a place to stay, we stumpled over this travel lodge in Lee Vinning and stopped for one night.

Really enjoyed my stay here, the staff were friendly, the setting was great, especially at night with all the stars visable due to the altitude, and the village itself was really nice.

Theres a good place to eat just down the road from here and a nice coffee shop next door overlooking the lake, the next day we drove into Yosemite National Park and all I can say is wow over the scenary.

One piece off advise though...reserve a room beforehand and dont just turn up looking for vacancy like I did, this is a popular lodge.

Not bad for the price. Beds were only OK; the room, towels, cleanliness were just fine. Had a problem with the heater under the window - couldn't keep the room a comfortable temperature (too hot or too cold) but it was below freezing outside.

The restaurant, Nicely's, is a 1 minute walk away and just fine too.

I remember this motel from a stay 10 years ago when it was a Best Western. It is still a good motel with pleasant surroundings, clean and comfortable. The rooms are reasonable, spacious and have all the usual facilities. It is less than 5 minutes from shops, a market, and restaurants. It is back from the road and so quiet and peaceful. The man at reception, forgot his name, is very welcoming and knows and loves the area.

Coming over the Tioga out of Yosemite we looked for a place to spend the night and chose Lake View Lodge. The staff was very friendly. The price was reasonable. The room was large, very clean with updated furnishings. Not much of a "lake view" but everything else was great. Highly recommended.

Stayed here in early Oct, so it was chilly at dawn and in evening, eastern Sierras live in the shadow of Yosemite, not much unless you appreciate beautiful quiet spaces! We had a queen room, not a cabin, likely renovated/refreshed probably within last 5-10 yrs., bathroom clean, excellent shower pressure, bed comfy, heater worked well. The hotel rooms though facing the road, are set back from the street so we didn't hear road noise.This hotel landscapes the property, so its charming and quaint walk to its coffee shop and not just concrete and cars. The latte was decent. We visited Mono Lake-for photos, Bodie, Devils Pipe, and admired the autumn-colored aspens along the way. I'd stay here again.

Room Tip: Take a room that's above the parking lot, lest you get headlights shining into the room

The room has a bed smile when we open it , there was no view as we ask in advance
The room look old very use , second floor , no elevator or assistance as been offer to carry the bags up into the room .

We call the front desk and one of the guys came in and admitted that the rooms is smiles but the alternative room that has been offer was Bed then the first one
I ask that the manger will come over but the guy forgot it

Bottom line it was bed experience and the rate that I has been charge was not Worth it .

it is samlllllll town , nothing to do , bed food -
better to continue to Mammoth Lakes - much better

We are here again
and have always had a nice warm and cozy feeling
Cabins are comfortable with a kitchen and all needed to
prepare a meal if you wish
Tonight we have a large room and surprise for us, a complete kitchen
for a very reasonable price...
You are a turn away from the road leading to Yosemite
We look from our room onto Mono Lake
which has a beautiful sunset
Front office help was refreshing
Enjoy it is lovely
