Went to the valley for a valentine's day getaway and stay the lodge. We had a queen bed room with bunk for the three of us which was more than adequate. Clean, warm room, only down side ws the view was of the parking lot---would have been nice to look toward the valley itself. The mini-fridge was very efficient ,...

I love Yosemite and visit there at least twice a year. More if I get anywhere near! So this week (2/12-15) I spent 3 nights at the Lodge near the Yosemite Falls. There is water everywhere and snow stacked around all the parking lots. This year there are more water falls than I have ever seen in all my years...

We stayed here in mid-December with a three year old. The Dogwood is located at the far end of the property - near a couple other buildings just like it. There were only two other families staying here, so it was very quiet. We were just across the street from Yosemite Falls and the flat walk was perfect for our...

We arrived after dark because our bus had to take a 3 hour detour because of flooding! So we were pooped and a little discouraged to see that our window looked our over the parking lot. Woke up in the morning and opened the curtain. OMG there was Yosemite Falls and giant pine trees towering over us. The room had...

We happened to go right after the park reopened from a rare winter closure. We were lucky enough one of the only two rooms at the lodge that have views of the falls from the patios. The rooms were clean, hospitable and the staff very friendly.

We had a room with the bunk-bed for our kids, and a connecting room with a king size bed. The room was very appropriate, but the best thing -by far- are the views. We were in a second room floor on the corner, so we had an amazing unobstructed views. The place is "motel like" so it feels expensive, but...

The lodge has everything, from ample parking, fine dining restaurant, snacks, bar and a swimming pool. For the dine dining restaurant do make an booking as soon as you can because it does get busy.

We stayed here about 8 years ago with our grandchildren. What a horrible experience, worn out furniture, terrible food, and poor service. Realizing that we needed a vacation for our New Year's anniversary, we thought we would try it again after hearing that there was a new concessionaire. Are we happy we did! The rooms have been renovated and are...

We checked rooms online the week before (its winter!) and they seemed to have many rooms available so we decided to just walk in and ended getting a better rate then online! Rooms nicer then comparable lodge in Grand Canyon. Rooms are large, have frig, fan, extra heater, and nice bathroom. Note that many rooms are far from parking, but...

Yes, the walls are paper thin, so get out of your room. Yes, it's expensive for the quality of hotel, but the location and views are what you're really paying for. Yes, the views are stunning. Yes, the food at the food court is passable, but know it is what it is and if you're not trying to be too...
