The principal attraction of Yosemite View Hotel is the proximity to Yosemite National Park. The accommodations inside the park are This has become a rather sad and shabby property, kept in business only by the nearby Yosemite National Park. The accommodations inside the park are booked far in advance and this hotel gets many of the overflow. We have stayed here several times over the past 15 years and have noticed a definite lack of maintenance and upgrades. The bedding is a bit old and room furnishings are dated and worn. In the immediate vicinity of our room, we saw several items in dire need of maintenance. The gutter outside the room was falling down and the railing and stairs were attached to wood with severe dry rot. It looked like the dry rot was painted over and not properly repaired. This hotel has become a rather sad and shabby property, kept in business only by the nearby park. We have eaten in the restaurants previously but avoided them this trip. I think it is unlikely that I will return.

Moderate stay

Had an ok stay in this hotel. If you stay here make sure to book a room that has a river view, otherwise you will be looking out over a parking lot or the road. Personally I think it’s worth to ‘upgrade’ to that for a more holiday feeling. Rooms are clean but a little bit dated. Could use an upgrade of colors and bathroom. We had dinner in the river view restaurant of the hotel that was nice. Overall a nice stay in this hotel.

Not recommended- poor services

We booked for a night at this hotel and the price is steep but that’s was Ok ; because of the location and the river view the room had kind of smell and bedding had stains , the too much chlorine in the water , TV - ah, it never worked , cable connection is very poor , Mind you they will charge you $10 for 2 devices for 24 Hrs ; I checked with fellow travelers the connection speed is terrible .

Perfect location

This hotel is situated in the most wonderful position, directly on the Merced river and so close to Yosemite National Park. Our room was in a superb spot close to the river which we loved. The room itself was ok, the bathroom was spacious and clean, the kitchen area is basic, no kettle and a coffee machine that didn’t work, carpets are in need of good clean. The bed was large and comfortable but the pillows and blankets need replacing desperately! The shop has basic provisions. Pizzas from the takeaway are good and appeared popular. If the rooms were up to standard this Hotel would be 5 stars. We would love to return but please make the changes needed.

I was very surprised with this lodge. Only a couple things bothered me, but the back of the rooms have terraces that face the Merced River, and WOW!! We couldn't believe how close we were to the rapids and man was it loud. You really didn't hear it with the back door closed and tv on. Sleeping was great, like white noise. Also, it's so close to the Yosemite National Park entrance. My biggest issue was the rugs, they look old and dirty and the smell of cleaning products was strong. The furniture is dated, but you have a mini suite with a fireplace, jet tub, stove, refrig, sink and dishware. For the amount you spend on a room, wifi should be free but it is not. If they gave this lodge a makeover, I would definitely come back to stay longer.
