We stayed in one of the cottages at Tenaya Lodge for 4 nights. The cottage was very nice. It was quiet being away from the main lodge, but yet not too far away to enjoy the lodge amenities. The beds and pillows were comfy and we loved having our own little deck overlooking the forest. Unfortunately the weather was freezing cold and rainy and we did not get to use the deck. The hot tub at the cottages was out of order and so was one of the hot tubs at the main pool. There were other hot tubs inside by the indoor pool but they were always people in them. The indoor pool didnt look very clean and people said it was very cold. The hotel was very nice and compensated us for not being able to use the hot tub in the cottage area. We didn't eat at any of the restaurants because our dog was with us and and all of the outdoor seating was closed due to the rain and bad weather. We were able to enjoy the large outdoor fire pit at Jackalopes one evening which was very nice, as well as the fireplace outside the entrance. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, but would have enjoyed it much more if we had nice weather. I highly recommend the cottages. We were in the dogwood cottage which is very close to the lodge.

This was one of the places we had planned to stay at and it didn’t disappoint. Lovely large room if a bit dark, plus good USB charging points. The staff all very helpful, great breakfast, and both restaurants are pretty good. With perfect access to Yosemite this is one of the best places to stay.

Comfort, style and location.

Hotel was very comfortable. Appreciated having laundry on site. The concierge was so kind. I got scammed on my reservation through an online booking that went out of business and had to make extra effort to get my stay rebooked direct. She sent us a wonderful fruit and cheese plate. Breakfasts were great. We also enjoyed flashlight guided night hike. Great stay overall.

Disappointing, noisy and tired

Not much good to say about this place unfortunately except for the ok facilities and the proximity to Yosemite park. The noise issue is unbearable- don’t book here if you want a good nights sleep- you can literally hear toilets flushing, word for word conversations, coughing sneezing, walking around upstairs, you name it. I’ve read similar comments from other guests on here and it seems the management doesn’t have any intentions of addressing it. This was the worst part about staying here, I got about 4 hours sleep I would say. Additionally our water pressure in the shower completely went by our first morning here- it was literally dripping when it had been really powerful the night before. I thought it might be because of a busy showering period in the hotel but the same happened again in the evening. Not what you want after a long day hiking in the mountains.... the room is outdated and I really disagree with having bedspreads as the main cover on a bed- I hope they’re washed each time a new guest arrives!! The restaurants are ok, overpriced for the food you do get which is just average. We didn’t go in the swimming pool as it looked like it hadn’t been cleaned In ages and was littered with kids toys. Sadly would not recommend this place at all- wish we had spent a bit more for a nicer place.

My new favourite place

We stayed in Tenaya for 2 nights in May 2019 and did not want to leave. I love the resort feel to it rather than a high build hotel and the cosy, feel good feeling that comes with it. Everything felt personal. We used the Jackalopes Bar and Grill twice during our stay, faultless both times with lovely food including the pasta which was one my favourite meals during a 2 week California road trip. Followed by sitting outside with the fire pit, it was unbeatable. After a long day in Yosemite Valley, we used the pool and Jacuzzi which was nice and quiet. Spacious rooms with a lovely bathroom, however, we did find the noise at various hours a bit annoying. Two things which really stood out for us whilst we stayed at Tenaya: - The free drinks voucher if we did not have housekeeping. What a great idea! - Lynn at the Concierge. We came to Lynn with one day to plan in Yosemite for 2 of us and unsure what we should do and what we could afford to miss. Without Lynn we would have been really stuck and probably spent the wrong amount of time at the wrong things and missed incredible sites. She was invaluable. We really hope to return to Tenaya and Yosemite some day. It was by far one of the best experiences' and hotels we've ever had.
