Bizzare experience. We made a reservation about 2 hours in advance of our arrival. When we arrived at 10:15, exactly when we said, after a 7 hour drive in the rain and cold, there was no one there to check us in. We called several times and could hear the phone ring through the window to the office. No one was there to pick it up. The emergency number we found on line was no better. Banging on the door and window to the office proved equally fruitless. Despiteg several voicemail message, we never got a return call or text. No key was left in the late night check in box to which we didn't have access anyway. There were only two cars in the lot. Ryan, the one who took our reservation, said he was getting off at 10 but that Ben would be there when we got there. Maybe Ryan left and Ben never showed. Who knows but it's no way to treat guests. Don't waste your time on this place. We're happily ensconced in the Tenaya Lodge up the road and still haven't gotten a call back.

I had such an amazing experience at Narrow Gauge Inn, which is only 4 miles away from National Yosemite Park. Very cozy & comfortable, although rooms does need an update on appliances but other than that a very great place to stay in

It is an authentic and charming inn. However, the beds are creaky and the heater was noisy. Maybe we should’ve booked a bigger room. There was no dinning options within proximity to the inn. The staff isn

Comfy hotel, not far from the Camp Fish entrance of Yosemite. Their restaurant was not open when we arrived after driving through Yosemite, so we had dinner at Tenaya Lodge (awesome burgers) as the town is about 12 miles from the hotel and we didn’t feel like driving into town. The rooms at Gauge Inn is very small but comfortable and clean, the staff were friendly and helpful. Overall not a bad experience.

Great Value for Location

My best friend and I stayed here for three nights after hiking Yosemite each day. Beds were super comfortable, bathrooms ample sized, and we slept very well, which was most important to us. Cost was also very reasonable. On the downside, you had to pay extra for a hot breakfast, which was of average quality (eggs tasted burned one morning); WiFi in the rooms was weak but better in the Reception area. Cellular signal is strong, however. Strangely, the lodge ran out of things during our stay: regular coffee grounds for the in-room coffeemaker; milk for breakfast cereal; and facial tissue paper in the bathroom. Happy that they provided free bottled water on demand - perfect for our hikes. Though not perfect, we’d certainly return.
