Lodge at the Falls provides basic accommodation (no frills room, no frills food hall, no frills service), but at a not-so-basic price. My family (2 adults and 3 young kids) and I have just completed a month's travel through California & Las Vegas, and our 2 bed room was the most basic, yet most expensive accommodation we stayed in during our trip.
Location, location, location. In the middle of Yosemite Valley, the sounds of nature surround you. You don’t have to look very hard to be struck by the beauty of the place. Our (small) balcony looked straight out onto a majestic view of a snow-capped cliff. A short walk to Yosemite Falls and various other hiking tracks.
Our room provided 2 double beds (extra cost for a roll-away that required 2 phone calls to get it delivered to the room) and space for not much else.
All in all, 2 star accommodation at a 4 star price - but hey, we didn't visit Yosemite for its plush hotels. The scenery is breathtaking (the view from our small balcony was amazing), the air feels fresh, and if coming from the city, the clear night time skies filled with millions of stars is a welcome sight. However, other than what Mother nature provided for free, I was disappointed with what I got for my money.
