Rush Creek Lodge at Yosemite

Yosemite National Park, USA

The hotel

In a hillside woodland setting close to the entrance to Yosemite National Park, Rush Creek Lodge offers warm, friendly service and a wealth of activities. You can hire a bike, enjoy a yoga class, relax by the pool or play a game of bumper pool! Enjoy the fresh California cuisine at the lodge’s two restaurants — both with al fresco seating for the warmer days. Choose between the rustic yet stylish Restaurant with its wood-burning oven and open kitchen, or the more casual Tavern with its big screen TVs, signature cocktails and evening music. There's also daily activities, from wildlife talks and kids crafts to beer tasting - and the lodge's nightly tradition of complimentary s'mores by the fire pit.

We loved our stay at Rush Creek Lodge. The room was cozy and clean, but also laid out very nicely for a family of four. We had one of the family suites and it was worth the extra $$$. The store was cute and convenient. The restaurant was delicious with very nice cocktails and a great menu. The kids loved the play area and zip line. The pool and jacuzzi area was also nice. The best part were the nightly s'mores and the kids activities onsite. Very cute place to stay and very close to the Yosemite entrance to the park. Read less

Absolutely beautiful hotel. Worth the price. Everything about the location and the lodge was perfect. It was a great place to stay for sight seeing and adventures around Yosemite. It had everything right there too. Customer support was fantastic.

Spa was a retreat within this retreat. I spent 5 hours lounging and savoring the waterfalls and warmth of “nature.” Suite was beautifully decorated and very large. Cute retro fireplace. Alexa played nice background music to start and end our day. Limited Food choices was my only issue.
