Location,location, location This hotel is very close to the park & the the room had a rushing river outside But - the room was dark & dank. Fridge door would not stay closed & the bathroom had chipped tiles The staff were polite. The shop was over priced and poorly stocked

Very basic, but good location

This is a very basic hotel, no air con, rooms which don't appear to have been renovated since the 1970s and a cafe that feels a bit like school dinners. However the location is amazing as are the views. The pool is incredible with views of the mountains and a waterfall and there is a shuttle stop at the lodge allowing you to get around the Parl for free if you don't fancy driving. We had a great trip, but don't expect luxury.

Room was decent but food was bad

We had two different rooms. One was a king size room, with a bathroom that only had a shower. The other was a bunk room and had a bathtub. The king had more space to move around, as the bunk and queen bed took up the bulk of the other room. The rooms were as expected for a National Park. They were clean, but the pillows were terrible. Where this location really suffered was the food. They had a cafeteria style eatery and most of that food wasn’t very good and was a poor value for the money. Breakfast was decent, and the salads we had were fine. The hot food options were not good. It was no wonder so many of the grab and go options in the store were sold out. They really need better food, considering the sit down restaurant was not open when we were there. I did see several families preparing this own food on the patio. That might be a good plan of the resources to do so are available to you.

Don’t leave your room to chance

Staff is super friendly but was given rm 3921-don’t take it! It overlooks the pool, so super noisy, no privacy and top corner of the building, so never cools down. I’ve been sitting here 2hrs with the door open, no relief. Get a rm with a balcony

Spirit of the Park

This hotel, while not the most luxurious nor up to the minute, does capture the spirit of the park itself. It is close to the cluster of facilities -- restaurant, cafeteria, bar, post office, fire pit, patios, gift shop and main lobby to make one feel connected to other visitors. This made it easy to strike up conversations with others similarly awed by the park's majesty. It offered easy access to the bus stops and hiking trails. And perhaps the best part: we had a view of Yosemite Falls from our balcony. It imparted an intimate feel to an awesome locale.
