We were welcomed by a very friendly receptionist who went out of her way to make us feel welcome after a very long drive and a last minute booking. The lodge was very comfortable and the balcony offered great views to watch the sunset over the park. There is a very useful general store and the breakfast and dinner were excellent. It was very near the Hetch Hetchy entrance to the Park.

Great time in Yosemite at Evergreen Lodge

Our group of 5 ladies had a fantastic time at Evergreen Lodge. We were in a family cabin and it was very comfy, even with 1 bathroom for 5 women! 😆 Our favorite adventure was the tour of gorgeous Yosemite Valley with our wonderful guide Tyler. He was so knowledgeable, fun, and enthusiastic! We had a great time with him. Thanks Tyler!

Book the extra night! You won't regret it!

The seclusion of the resort while being so close to Yosemite was everything we'd hoped for and more. The food was amazing and the service was superb. We were so sad to leave but are already booking our next trip! Our stay was in a king cabin near the sunset overlook which made for amazing views of the park. We did two nights which was not enough time to fully enjoy the resort. Our next visit will be longer so we can take part in the many amenities on site!

We stayed in a single, 1 bedroom cabin W5 for 3 nights in late April. The cabin was clean & spacious. There is no ability to cook or even heat up leftovers in these cabins. There is very small fridge. There is a restaurant/tavern in easy walking distance, however the restaurant staff was less than enthusiastic & even though the restaurant was never 1/2 full, the amount of time needed to take our order & prepare the food was excessive. I will say the food was always hot & tasted good. My biggest annoyance, which is mostly my fault for not researching their location better, was it takes over an hour to get to Yosemite Valley, which is only 27 mi away, and the 6.5 mi road leading to & away from the lodge is very bumpy & curved. Im sure some people love the location & the isolation, but, Im not one of them.

Great Place, Outside the Park

Great place. Beautiful cabins, with excellent Wifi and - bless them! - plenty of electrical outlets and USB plugs. My brother and I shared a 2-bedroom cabin, and our friends had a 1-bedroom. All very clean, and beautifully sited, surrounded by trees. We ate in the restaurant both nights we were there, and the food was excellent, the staff friendly. So, as for the facility itself, it's an easy 5 stars. What brings it down is the location - a long windy road, and rather than being 'just outside the park' - it is a good 45 minutes or more to the park entrance from there. If you're going to the Yosemite Valley Lodge, allow more than an hour. We had booked the Valley Floor Tour - we left Evergreen at 8.35 for a 10am start; managed to miss the turn for the Lodge the first time and had to go around the 1-way loop again: the sad result is we missed our tour by 2 minutes. My friend and I were already in the bus, my brother and my friend's husband were just crossing the parking lot; it was 10.02, and the driver wouldn't wait for the men to get there. We had to get off the bus and missed our tour. No refund, of course; they had said they're strict about timeliness, and boy, did they mean it. The kick in the teeth was that TripAdvisor wouldn't let me leave a review for the tour, presumably because we had missed it. The lady at Yosemite Lodge was unhelpful - she could have told us about the shuttle bus. The shuttle bus was great, once we found it, and we still managed to see the sites in the park. All in all, it was a good day. Back to England!
