Toilet didn't work. We fixed ourselves. Room strange layout. Bed hard. But it was a room - (view of Mono Lake pretty hard to find ). Restaurant only open on weekends. It close to eastern Yosemite. So...

This is one of the better motels my husband and I have stayed at on our recent road trip. We checked in around dusk without reservations so we were happy to find an available room. Our room had a kitchenette which came in handy. Our room was decorated nicely and clean. Our beds were very comfortable. Our heater seemed to...

The Lake View Lodge is our go to place when staying in Lee Vining. Whereas we have not had a lake view room, we still like the location, clean rooms, friendly people and proximity to our destination. The prices are reasonable and the grounds are beautiful.

We stayed here for two nights as a base for Yosemite National Park. The room was very clean with a very comfortable bed, coffee facilities, microwave and fridge. The staff were very friendly giving lots of information of where to eat including the Epic Cafe on the grounds. The hotel is right next to the Tioga Pass so very convenient...

We stopped here on our way to Yosemite. It's very close to Tioga Road and close to Mono Lake. Room was clean. Had to go outside to get wifi to work. Walking distance to the restaurants in town. Great coffee shop with very good breakfast sandwiches just a block from the Lodge. It is a rustic motel and there weren't...

Nice. Quiet. Convenient. Reasonable. No WiFi. Great seasonal cafe on the property. Epic Cafe. Easy access to Mono Lake. I don't like having to put in 200 two hundred words. I'm on a frickin vacation! I still can't get out of review jail. This is stupid! I'm about to write a bad review of Trip Advisor. I am writing a...

My father, sisters and I liked the idea of staying in a place that had so much space, and that was indeed a positive for Cottage 51T. The living room and kitchen/dining room were quite large, and the master bedroom was a very nice size, too. I can also say that the staff was very kind. That's about as far...

We stayed here after a wonderful visit of Mono Lake and before our vacation in Yosemite. There isn't much to choose from in Lee Vining and while the Lake View Lodge is one of the highest rated, don't expect much. It's an old motel with overpriced rooms. The floor creaks, you can hear everything happening outside, and the spring mattress...

we rented one of the cabins in the rear of the facility as we were fishing for 4 days and needed a kitchen and a refrigerator to store the catch. The Lodge manager helped by storing some of them in the freezer in the back office refrigerator. There is a community cleaning sink by the central garden area for preparing...

My husband and I stayed at Lake View Lodge for 2 nights late September before we traveled into Yosemite N.P. Our room was so comfortable with an excellent small restaurant on site called Epic Cafe. Right next door to the lodge is a well-stocked small market with plenty of wines to select from. Lee Vining is the perfect place to...

“Corner rooms 44 and 43 are sizeable and have best view. Avoid room 16 as it is in a first floor breezeway and cave-like”
