Excellent location for exploring Yosemite Valley. Service was very good and likes the hotel very much. Note: we always found a parking spot however it sometimes took a little time. We used the shuttle, which stops near the hotel, whenever we could. Would deifinitely stay here again. Reservce as early as you can because rooms get very scarce in season.

Yosemite is a perfect place! It’s wonderfull! The hotel is very simple but we can see the Falls. There are three restaurants and people are very kind. It’s not easy to rent a room because it’s very crowded.

Well Located, Pricey Option

We stayed here for a winter trip to Yosemite. The rooms were simple, but clean. I think the hotel's photos accurately represent the room to expect. You are really paying for the location, not the room. It is great to be able to wake up and head straight to the valley shuttle or the bus to the ski area at Badger Pass. One key recommendation, make dinner reservations if you plan to eat anywhere besides the food court. We were here during January (not peak season), and were quoted long wait times for tables at the restaurant. Because you're deep in the park, your options are limited as far as dining.

I was a little worried about our stay here given the reviews but was pleasantly surprised by the room and staff and surroundings at this hotel. Room was warm in the wintertime and they provided a pack and play for our baby. The location is amazing, very close to lower Yosemite falls and the surrounding sights, we could walk everywhere which was great for a trip with a baby and my older father. Shuttle was also convenient. I was very impressed with the basecamp restaurant, which was very affordable and decent food, not at all what I was expecting from a tourist hotspot. The power went out one of the nights but they had generators hooked up to all the rooms so as a guest you didn’t really feel it, just the restaurants had to be closed early. I appreciated that they put the guest rooms as first priority. The bathroom was clean and general scenery just gorgeous. It was a wonderful place to be our base as we exploring Yosemite over 3 days.

Great place to stay in Winter

Winter is special in Yosemite after a snow storm. There are so few people there compared to summer which I avoid if at all possible due to the crowds. It snowed 6-8 inches the night we arrived. The next morning was breathtakingly beautiful. The lodge is the ideal place to stay. You're paying for "location, location, location". The rooms are pretty basic but worth every cent because you are in the valley, the heart of sightseeing in Yosemite. We paid $240 per night total with taxes. In winter weather, don't stay an hour away at a cheaper hotel outside of the valley. It just isn't worth the trouble, especially if you're having to have tire chains on. My favorite time to come to Yosemite is mid May when the waterfalls are incredible..
