Reserved a "deluxe room" for 170.00 a night. I was told that the rooms had been recently refurbished so I was expecting a newer and fresher room. We were very disappointed. We were placed in the Eldeberry building and although it was clean, the room is dark and in disrepair. The furniture is beaten up, the floors are carpet tiles, the windows don't open and the patio is just "yuk". The parking is open to all visitors so if you can't get a spot near your building, you have to park across a street.
I found out that the lodge took hand me down furniture from the Tenaya Hotel outside the park after the Tenaya refurbished. (I knew the furniture looked familiar) I also learned that two buildings at the lodge have been remodeled and are clean and bright, so if you stay there ask for either the Willow building or Manzanita buildings. I understand that Yosemite is about the outdoors but who wants to feel creepy at night in a room?
On a brighter note, everything else was great. The restaurants were good, there's internet access in the bar and in the lobby and the front desk people were very nice. However, I still feel like I was burned for the price and will never stay at the Yosemite Lodge again.
