It was actually a few years since we have stayed there but we will be back before too long. The lodge is beautiful and the rooms are nice, just no balcony and we were there in the winter so the rooms that had a patio had snow up to the roof...no way to get out onto the patio. They had a horse drawn carriage ride that was a hug plus, really fun, I even got to feed one of the horses snow. They have a hill for the kids to slide down in their sleds, great for families. And the adults have a nice bar to warm up with kicked up coffee. We had a power outage when we were there that seemed not very organized, it was so dark we couldn't see anything and there wasn't any emergency lights that came on, not even in the hallways, but we survived. Overall it was a fun trip and it was a great winter vacation.

Great place - unfortunately overpriced
Most of the staff were fantastic and friendly. We booked into the cabins which were nice and great to refresh ourselves for the walk to the lodge. The lodge was great and the food offerings and leisure options fantastic, however most definitely soured by the rudeness of the younger concierge. I was also expecting a lot more, particularly what we paid for.
The outdoor fireplaces were nice and good way to meet people. The general store down the road is a must visit, even if for just a chat.

Winter New Year Fun at Tenaya Lodge!
Originally when we booked the hotel, we went through a reservation center. The reservation center didn’t communicate thoroughly and left out some important details that could have determined the outcome of our New Year’s eve. Because of all the lodge has to offer we chose this hotel. I try to remedy the situation by calling the hotel prior to but didn’t receive a call back until three days later which did not help since we were already checked in. Fortunately, upon arrival Lyndsey at the front desk made it all better! Her customer service was excellent and she was really compassionate to our situation. She more than made up for our initial frustration. Monte, the concierge, also took charge and provided a good solution in order for our children to partake in all the festivities Tanaya Lodge has to offer for their fantastic New Year’s party. Much gratitude goes out to the staff for making our stay a memorable one. The beds could have been more comfortable, and the walls more sound proof to have a better nights sleep, but we are spoiled at home with those comforts, so those are just a couple things the lodge can improve on if I had to point out improvements. There is plenty to do for the whole family and great overall service if you want an excellent place to stay while visiting the beautiful Yosemite National park

Annual East Central California Prayer Conference
For many years the ECC has hosted its prayer conference at Tenaya Lodge. I am thankful, as it allowed us the experience to see Yosemite for the first time.
The lodge and it’s entire staff( from parking to turn down service) was par excellance.
The excursion we booked through concierge was exactly what they promoted ( which isn’t always the case at some hotels and resorts) we had a small group and an amazing guide who told us of the history and stories about Yosemite and the lodge.
The food in the hotel restaurant was prepared and served with care. Super fun and friendly staff but also respected your privacy and so romantic meals were easy to enjoy.
I want to go back! There is still so much to experience in Yosemite and Tenaya Lodge is the best place to make Base Camp( in style )

Family friendly and enjoyable
We stayed at Tenaya Lodge for a few nights just before Christmas.
Upon check-in the bell staff were very friendly and helpful. Check-In staff weren’t quite as warm and fuzzy.
Our room was well sized and comfortable. We had asked for a room upstairs and away from everyone, which they accommodated, however the WiFi didn’t work at all up there. When I asked them about it, they said there were probably a lot of people on it bc of the wedding taking place. 2 days later, they told me it was probably because of the storm.
Our heater stopped working a couple of times, but they promptly sent someone to repair it.
The room also had a strong deodorizer scent- not sure if they use that because dogs are allowed on property?
The bathroom was also freezing. It would have been nice if they put a heat register in there or a heat lamp.
They had a lot of fun family friendly activities- gingerbread house making, ornament decorating, live music in the lobby. Ice skating, etc.
The Xboxes in the game room didn’t work.
The hotel food is very expensive- super over priced for what it is. I’d suggest getting some items to keep in your room for breakfast and lunch.
It’s a nicely done hotel, and we would stay here again due to its proximity to Badger Pass and Yosemite.
