Cheap hotel services and luxury prices

This hotel is totally overpriced. Sorrounding are great and the rooms lack maintenance but the sevices are extremely poor. When you arrive, there is no one to receive you or guide you to the front desk. Forget about help with your luggage. The restaurant is overcrowded and the food has no relation with what they charge you. The same situation at the pool bar where there is even a rude bartender who treats people like dogs. No one would tell you what the ammenities of the hotel are or what activities you can do. Theres no hospitality at all. You are by yourself. The price for that disappointing experience is at least $ 450 a night.

Expensive for nothing special

I get it - you're close to the Wawona entrance and Mariposa Grove of sequoias. Probably all the other accommodations in the area are also expensive. Just be aware that you get nothing special at Tenaya Lodge. Our cottage unit was one of 3 in a single building, and pretty cramped. The lodge pool is very crowded and noisy with kids; the separate adult pool is barely 20 feet away, and thus just as noisy. Next time, I"ll stay in Oakhurst - 20 minutes down the hill, but much better value. do NOT eat at the Tenaya Lodge's Timberloft pizzeria - frozen pizza served with a scowl.

Decrepit and Outdated Hotel Rooms!

We had stayed at the Tenaya lodge in their explorer cabins a few months ago which were spartan from the outside (think army barracks) but very nice on the interior with updated furnishings and amenities. We returned to Yosemite last week and since it was for only one night, decided to stay in the main hotel. What a mistake! Our "deluxe" room did not have working a/c. The fans kept going on but the room never went below 82 degrees! Finally I opened the window and then it got very cold. So I spent the night opening and closing the window as the temperature alternated between very hot and very cold. But wait, there's more! The mattresses were probably at least 10 years past their throwaway date as they sank and squeaked loudly with the slightest movement. It was so ridiculous that at one point we just burst out laughing...especially as we remembered that the room was around $350 per night. There was a giant tree right outside the single window so there was zero view of any kind but we didn't care as we couldn't wait to leave the place. I can tolerate the very limited dining and menu options due to Covid but to not maintain your over priced hotel rooms is inexcusable. Shame on you Tenaya Lodge, for the entirely sleepless night we endured thanks to your callous disregard for your paying guests.

Lovely hotel with poor service

The lodge buildings are in a beautiful setting, would be wonderful except for the price and very poor service. We paid over $450 a night for a run of the mill motel room. The food in the one opened restaurant was mediocre and extremely overpriced. A glass of house red wine was $12! The food was of poor quality.. frozen and reheated. We were told there was a pizzaria on the premises, we walked to it to find a shuttered building that hadn’t been open in years! Save your money, stay elsewhere, anywhere but here.
