Maybe a 15 min drive from the village, this hotel is a good alternative if you don't mind staying a bit outside. We had a BIG room with fake fireplace and a jacuzzi - chaiselongue and a big bathroom with shower. And a kitchenette! Lots of space! Loved the quietness and the bar (great bartender) and friendly staff all over. We had a good pizza, drinks and cold beer in the bar one night, and a proper dinner in the restaurants the next. Perfect! Can only recommend.

We stayed here for 2 nights, i booked it through booking.com and it was told WIFI is free. We reached this hotel too late and found that no signals, hotel said wifi is a paid service on top of it that they there was no even paid wifi. I had to travel 12 miles to get signals and to call my family. Rooms were good, the place is very near to valley and again you have better options inside the valley.

DISCRIMINATORY and a cheating lying Staff

Completely DEFRAUDED us. We were some of the first to check-in (there were just a couple cars in entire hotel at that time, it was wednesday mid-week) - yet they found the worst possible room at rate of 300$ a night. we had paid for a room with a view and yet they somehow found a reason to give us the corner most room with a namesake view. We had to fight with them to get a decent room. We also noted that Reception and Front-desk Staff was EXTREMELY discriminatory to us but welcoming to people of other racial origin. Perhaps all their "good rooms" are reserved for people with special racial origins. Also the receptionist was making sarcastic hints and taunts toward us for purchasing groupon, even though I explained her the voucher had expired - so it was not a groupon but rather a pre-paid amount that I had already paid to them. They charged us a 300$ deep cleaning fee based on fraudulen allegations that our dogs left the room smelly and full of fur??? (they are charging dog fee for not having to deal with fur , REALLY!!!!????) - our dogs have been potty trained for 4 years now, and this place claims they magically got "potty untrained" ?? The room was left in EXACT condition as when entered. My dogs have been on a 5 week cross-country trip this year itself and stayed in 35 hotels for 35 consecutive nights - and not one accident , not one charge for cleaning in those stays!!! The hotel runs its business by thieving people - misusing its commercial license by making false claims.

The lodge is one of the few large accommodation on the way to Yosemite National Park with a good restaurant. Breakfast and dinner were good. Rooms are big and comfortable. The property looks old and news upgrading,

Proximity to the Yosemite Gate is all they have going for them

First off, the location is fantastic. The hotel is located about 15-20 minutes from the Yosemite park entrance. However, that's about all it has going for it. The customer service is terrible. Hotel staff are rude, unhelpful, and seem very bothered during the check-in, check-out process. The rooms were very outdated. There were many large stains on the carpets. The bathrooms seemed to have been recently but the rooms were far behind. We paid for an "apartment" because we needed two bedrooms. Based on the room name and description I was expecting a living room, and two separate bedrooms. Instead, it was simply two hotel rooms (the door between the two rooms was unlocked). We were traveling with infants that go to bed much easier than us and our older child. The plan to put them to bed and then watch some tv and hang out for a while. The lack of living space made that impossible to do. We would have been better served in booking to joint hotel rooms and would have saved over $100 by doing that. We were disappointed in the rooms and felt misled. My overall sense is that they know that their draw is the proximity to the park and don't care much about maintaining customer service or the quality of the rooms.
