Overall the room we stayed in was clean, comfortable, and actually a little nicer than I thought it would be. We got a King room, which came with a small fridge and our's had a little balcony. Everything in the Valley is overpriced, (especially lodging and food), But it's worth the experience by far. The lodge is the best overall...

We visit Yosemite every year, and have never been disappointed with our stay. This was our twenty seventh consecutive President's Day weekend stay at the Yosemite Lodge, and aside from no snow, we had a wonderful adventure.

We stayed at the lodge for 2 nights over winter. We requested to move our room twice as we weren't satisfied with the view and got a fantastic view of the falls from the balcony on our last switch. The staff were great and very accommodating to our wishes. The location of the lodge is about 5 minutes from the...

The lodge is directly beneath Yosemite falls which you see from the main parking lot. The lodge is in the middle of things in Yosemite which facilitates in doing any number of activities available. The hotel has 240 rooms and 5 -6 buildings so it is spread out. We stayed in Maple which was close to the parking lot with...

Stopped over at Yosemite and stayed here for one night - the room was tad old and traditional however it was still in good condition and very clean. Location was perfect as it was only a few minutes drive to all major attractions. Good enough if you're planning to stay for only couple of nights!

We stayed for one night on a roadtrip. This place is great in terms of location, the rooms are nice however there are a few things letting it down. We had a lovely room with a view of the fall and the room was a good size however I slept poorly as the heater made a ridiculous amount of noise...

We had a room on the very end, room 4600. We could see the falls if we walked out of our room. There is a shuttle that will take you to various locations in the park. We only had a day and a half there so we only scratched the surface of all that surrounded us. We did the Valley...

this is a good option if you want accommodation in the park itself. the room is comfortable but some areas, such as Elderberry, are quite far from the front desk so you'll have to drag your luggage quite a distance away after check in. during the low season, it's possible to try asking for a late checkout. the rooms are...

The arrival at Yosemite Lodge at the Falls was a awesome experience, mainly because of the place where the hotel is installed. See the huge cascade through the treetops and listen to your bang is something I will never forget . The warmth of the room was also surprising because we arrived at a lower temperature.

If you haven't been, go. A must place to visit for landscape photography. The lodge has all the amenities one needs. Food is reasonable, rooms are clean and quiet, except for the roar of the falls! Go in the winter or early spring when it is not crowded.
