The good - quick responses to emails; generally clean and attractive facilities; well maintained grounds; good ice machine; reasonably quick check-in; adequate parking; reasonable price given the location. The bad - little hot water, and what there was alternated between scalding hot and very...

Close to Mono Lake, Yosemite and in reasonable distance to Bodie. Okay for a night or two - but do do not expect to see the lake from your room. Our room was huge, bed comfortable and everything was very clean. The information in the booklet in the room is outdated - we ended up being one hour prior to...

Breakfast isn't provided, but there is a coffee shop and bakery on the premises and a few restaurants within walking distance. We had a small kitchenette in our room and the...

The lodge is centrally located in Lee Vining, within walking distance to restaurants, shops, and city parks. (The Mono Lake Visitor Center is a bit farther away.) We had a cabin behind the main motel building; be advised that not all rooms actually have a lake view, but a few steps outside will bring it in sight. Our cottage (16A)...

We booked this place last minute as we drove through the Tioga Pass. Room is spacious, friendly check in. Lee Vining is a cute little town with beautiful surroundings. Lake Mono is very close. We enjoyed our stay.

We checked-in late in a Saturday after a long drive from Las Vegas. Upon arrival, we were welcomed to the hotel by a comfortable lobby and very friendly staff member.
