Ok so bottom line: this is like a 50's motel that has not been updated. However, given the alternatives (Camp Curry in a tent? Awahnee Hotel with those extreme prices? Or outside the park to spend ages driving in?) No way! This is the best deal ever!
We had two adjacent ground floor rooms for one week. One room was incredibly dark due to a tree outside on the patio. The shower water temperature kept fluctuating. That was horrible, and did make me wish for the Awahnee. However an employee at the Awahnee said the same thing happens at their hotel! I found that if you just take a shower during "off-times" (really early in the morning, during the day, or at night, as opposed to peak hours of 7am) it was fine.
The truth is assuming you are not in Yosemite for the room, but to get outside, it's an acceptable place to be. There's a fridge and a TV in the room (no room service or anything like that; this is a motel)
There is a cafeteria, a restaurant, a lounge, a gift store and a small market all in the complex. The shuttle stops right here so it's all very easy to get around the Valley.

We stayed here for two nights and it was perfect. While the hotel has certainly seen better days, it's in the best location. It's less then a 5 minute walk to the waterfall, right next to the large fields and river, and you can access a lot of different trails right from the hotel, without moving your car or shuttle. There are also a lot of dining options at the hotel (in various price ranges), making things easy in the evenings. From many of the rooms you can see the falls as well, which is a spectacular view.

Stay at the Ahwanee if you possibly can, but if that's not possible the Lodge is alright for a night or two. Our room was very outdated and had mildew in the shower, but the bed was reasonably comfortable and the location is stellar. They should tear it down and build something fantastic with a dining room looking right at the Falls. Right now the Restaurants and Bar are on the far side of the parking lot and don't face the Falls.

Upon arrival, we were surprised at the age of the Lodge and noticed some of the dilapidated structures when driving in. It concerned us some, but we kept an open mind. My husband and I much prefer the old lodges than the new anyway. At check-in (no complaints) we were informed that our room was one of the newly remodeled rooms with a view of the falls. Bingo! Entering our room we were awestruck at the forethought that went into the remodeling of the room. Very warm cabin like feeling with beamed vaulted ceilings, comfy bed, wonderful bathroom and the furnishings on the balcony looking at the falls was new and very accommodating. The food in the cafeteria area was delicious and the staff very helpful. Our purchases at the two gift shops on the grounds were flawless and the sales team was helpful. I am a Pastor and performing a wedding ceremony over the weekend at another more upscale lodge nearby. While the wedding facility was grand and lovely it did not have the same "Old Yosemite" feel we experienced our Lodge. We both agree that the buildings on the grounds need some TLC but understand it all takes time, money and the cooperation of Mother Nature.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the newly updated rooms

My review is strictly for the hotel and not the park , which I dearly love. This place needed to be rebuilt 30 years ago and things have only gone downhill since. Our room had big stains on the carpet , handles missing off one of the drawers, window not working properly, paint chipped and peeling in the bathroom, and the tv was an antique. The walls are so thin that you could not only hear your neighbors talking , you could understand what they were saying! For this we paid $270 per night. Highway robbery! The accommodations in the valley are really an embarrassment with the exception of the Awahnee Hotel. So sad to see the neglect of such a natural treasure by not replacing all the aging and sub standard visitor facilities.
