Spendy to stay here but so worth it. Room was small but cozy. Was very grateful they let us check in early so we could spend our day exploring. Staff is very helpful and friendly. We will definitely be back.

Went here with the wife and really enjoyed the stay. March 11th and spent the night, the views were awesome and sounds were serene. Our room was small quaint and clean and comfortable. They have a nice restaurant and gift shop convenient to rooms. If I could do over again I would try to go to the park in April...

This hotel is at the bottom of the great Yosemite Falls. How can you beat that for location. The room is very comfortable and has a small fridge, coffee maker and a flat screen TV. Our ground level room also had a patio with table and chairs to enjoy the park. It was too cold at this time to sit...

The lodge is right across from the path to the base of the falls. The reason to stay in at the lodge is that it is the best value place to stay in Yosemite Valley and the other alternatives are outside the park about 20 miles away or within the park down at Wawona, which is a long way away....

We were there from 2/26 to 3/1/2017. Got an excellent rate since I booked a month and a half in advance. The chain requirement was lifted that weekend. The room was very nice. Had all the things you needed. Plenty of heat and hot water! The food places connect with the lodge were all top notch. We even got to...

If you only considered by price alone, the convenience of being inside the park outweighed the price premium of being on location. Since we specifically asked for and got one of the rooms near the main road, it was even more convenient. It's a standard hotel room with a king bed but it was fairly large with lots of room...

Our family visited Yosemite in February 2017. Hotel is centrally located in Yosemite Valley. Easy hike to the lower falls. Due to weather and floods many of the hikes we would have done were inaccessible. We were lucky we had a one hour delay on hwy 120 getting into the park, but then the road closed the next day. Only...

We stayed for two nights in the beginning of January 2017. Whilst the hotel is in an unbelievably beautiful part of the world and we loved the area, we did find this hotel a bit overpriced. Unfortunately our room was also only half cleaned while we were there and our coffee etc., that we had used was not replaced or...

Stayed here the weekend before Valentine's day and it a nice place to stay. You may find more modern accommodations further away but being in the valley and not having to drive in is the better way to go. You can tell the buildings are older but the bathroom, bed and television are updated. Rooms are good size and you...
