The environment is peaceful and the entire place is calm. Lee Vining is a census-designated place in Mono County, California, United States. It is located 21 miles south-southeast of... More

The cozy cabin was perfect for the two of us. Early June visit and very littlectraffic. Bird house on a tree next to the front deck was awesome. The amenities are basic. Slightly small shower, but plenty of hot water. There is a smll tv, and homestly with all the beauty atound us, we never even turned it on. Plenty... More

With all that I have already mentioned above, there is more. They were doing construction right behind our unit, digging holes, moving dirt, etc. Also, not enough towels for everyone especially where kids are concerned, kids always need more. This may be the best hotel in the area, for me they will NOT get my repeat business. Customer service is... More

If you're staying in Lee Vining you're likely en route to Yosemite and Lee Vining is conveniently close. The town itself is odd yet charming. It's fun to explore and mingle with the locals. Lake View Lodge is clean and well kept. It has a mix of motel style accommodation options and cabins. Despite what the signs say the wifi... More

Stayed there one night. Great location if you want easy access to the east side of Yosemite. In twenty minutes we went from the hotel room to climbing up to Gaylor lakes in the park. The rooms are large and clean although they were dated. As for the Lake view I never saw it. But for the price and what... More

We rented a cabin for one night and it was very nice, 3 beds in 2 bedrooms with a living room and kitchenette. It was clean and well kept. All the appliances worked. There was a nice yard with lawn chairs and a picnic table. I would stay here again. We had no plans for the next night so we... More

We absolutely loved the cute cabin. Although the "neighborhood" included some mobile homes, sheds, etc., the cabin was quaint and comfortable. Almost needed a 4wd to get to our cabin a ways back in the property cuz the driveway was pretty darn rough. But walking distance to laundromat, restaurants, and convenient store. We really enjoyed the cabin and wish we... More

The Lake view lodge in Lee Vining is trule the best hotel there is in Lee Vining. That says more about the other places than over The Lake view lodge. Everything is basic, the rooms ( clean by the way ) but small and dark. Besides the average the rooms are really expensive for what they offer. Negotiation makes no... More

We booked this hotel very early due to the reviews on trip advisor to receive a room on second floor. While arriving the stuff was friendly and we received the room as mentionned. We then went to see the sundown at the Mono Lake. When we got back to the room we wanted to cook something in the microwave. The... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights there over memorial weekend. Only really noisy in the early A.M. By the birds! I can't complain about that. Stayed in a cabin one night and a room the next. Both were very clean and comfortable. Very nice and helpful. I may have just had a bad experience with the hot water, but... More
