After 6 weeks in South America & 6 weeks in USA this was possibly the least friendly place we stayed. Despite signage stating the restaurant is open, it’s not on Monday or Tuesday nights (same for bar). The rooms appeared to be heavily booked. Guests are not permitted to use the seating/open fire areas on these evenings (there’s a huge resort - Tenaya - closer in to Fish Camp). Rooms are clean but dated. Beds are comfortable but bedding not overly warm. There’s a heater in room which was required during the night. Despite there being a large restaurant only one section is open for breakfast. Each morning we were there guests were unable to find table/seating. Breakfast supplied is modest. They were short of bowls, cups & sugar. We couldn’t assess the bar/dinner restaurant (per above) but, based on our experience, are surprised it rates #1 on TripAdvisor for Fish Camp restaurants. Lady at checkout (4/17) was abrupt and quite unfriendly.

Not worth 4 stars and price

Clean yes - but dark and cold room - we were disappointed that the room was not preheat Ed when we came so the bed and Linien was very cold ! we booked also this place due to pool and hot top but closed due to maintenance- we stayed 3 days - one day we had no cleaning . Restaurant next door the buffalo- overpricing for the quality of the food.

Perfect base for the hiker who wants to travel about Yosemite Valley and Oakhurst. Rustic and homely room with a great balcony and fantastic views. Refrigerator in room, working heater, cable TV, ok wifi and free parking. It states free breakfast but it's actually 9.99. As of time of writing, there is no working pool or hot tub. There are snacks and drinks on site however, it is highly advisable to bring your own supplies; food, coffee, quick meal sources etc. As their offerings are limited. It is with a heavy heart that I write the restaurant is awful given how lovely and quaint this place is. Horrid prices, under pre-pared menu and less than satisfactory tastes. I also was terribly ill hours after eating. Overall, it was a great home away from home. They allow pets and have big enough beds for you to share with them;) Given a good day and no construction, you can get to the main Yosemite park in about an hour!

Cozy and romantic!

My husband and I stayed in room 40 which has to be the best room because it has a private balcony with a gorgeous view of the forest and creek. We kept the window open all night and the tranquil sound of the water out us to sleep! Everyone was so very kind as well especially Maylene. She found out it was our honeymoon and made sure we had a very special stay. I hope to visit again one day!

Rustic/Soothing Feel

My spouse had booked a quick getaway to Yosemite to recharge and the NGI was our place. It's fairly close to the park, and Coarsegold was close by so we had some meal options. Our room was # 51 at the end of the second level for this lodge. The wooden floors and the rustic charm had a soothing feel. The nightly price was listed as $ 94 so it was very reasonable. The queen bed was a bit hard, but the bathroom was clean, the balcony had an excellent view of the trees and snow, there was even snow on the balcony. There were two wooden rockers on the balcony and the nearby stream under the lodge provides a relaxing feel. We are contemplating a return in the summer and looking at our options. The inn is pet-friendly and for an extra deposit you can bring your fur family along.
