The lodge looks to have been built in the 50s, with the room size and solid construction standards of that time, thus you are presented with large rooms with thick walls which keep out any extraneous noise. The furniture is dated but functional and it has a real BATH (I can’t remember the last time I saw one in a US hotel) The bar and grill have… Read more

The furniture is dated but functional and it has a real BATH (I can’t remember the last time I saw one in a US hotel) The bar and grill have been slated in previous reviews, but appear to have been taken over and now provide a perfectly satisfactory eating option.

Didnt get there until late. Would have liked to use the hot tub for sore muscles. Bar was the other option which was very busy and welcoming. It is about 30-40 minutes from the falls and if I had known I would have stayed closer

The rooms are noisy at the front and between rooms, take ear plugs. Ask for a room on the first floor and you get a balcony. Rooms are a good size but dates. If arriving by YART the bus you arrive on is the last one until late afternoon to the park. The hotel will hold your luggage until check in. We went and had a swim and relax by the river… Read more

If arriving by YART the bus you arrive on is the last one until late afternoon to the park. The hotel will hold your luggage until check in. We went and had a swim and relax by the river over the road from the hotel. There is an indoor and outdoor pool at the hotel you can get towels from the indoor pool. There is a shop, a diner and a restaurant. We ate at the diner and we were happy with our dinner. There is little choice in this area and this hotel is expensive to what it is. The scenery is stunning and we loved having a swim in the river at the end of the day Read less

Stayed 2 nights and couldn’t fault any aspect of our stay. Our room was very spacious and well equipped with all that you’d need and every member of staff we met was charming and helpful.

We also enjoyed the bar/restaurant in the evening and had great food and service both nights we were there. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this lodge and would definitely stay again. Read less

Had to book here as had very few options for Yosemite trip and surprisingly this was cheapest despite being VERY overpriced for 2 nights!! Staff were not very clear about deposit/payment etc. Very confusing and we were under the impression we had to pay again on checkout.

Had to book here as had very few options for Yosemite trip and surprisingly this was cheapest despite being VERY overpriced for 2 nights!! Staff were not very clear about deposit/payment etc. Very confusing and we were under the impression we had to pay again on checkout. At least 30 min drive out of Yosemite but rooms were clean and spacious with toiletries. We ate at Parkside pizza up the road both nights as unfortunately not much choice in this area nor in Yosemite after 8/9pm. Can’t believe had to pay for WiFi and breakfast - we didn’t pay for either but had no phone signal either so was hard to research for our holiday. Overall would only book again if we had no other choice/was cheapest for using as a base for Yosemite hiking Read less
