We stayed here for 1 night, the rooms are big but a bit too expensive. It’s only a couple of miles from the entrance of Yosemite park. That is a big plus. Also is there a restaurant, and swimming pool.

We had a long drive home so we knew we needed to get in one night of rest before heading home and this is where we stayed. It was a basic room with 2 queen beds. It had a funny bathroom counter that followed the curvature of the wall. The Bathroom door was often a problem because it opened wide...

We stayed here for 1 night while visiting Yosemite. We had a 'Luxury King Spa' only because it was the only room available. The room was OK but the dark furniture was quite gloomy. We were disappointed to find that you had to pay $9 for internet access (we only wanted to send a couple of emails). The customer service...

We were assigned a non-smoking room in building 500 with two queen beds. The room was OK but very cheaply furnished. An hour after going to bed I woke up to find both beds covered in bedbugs and spots of blood. I scoped up several bugs in a cup, packed up, and gave the cup to the front desk. We...

After a night in Motel Hell we were very excited to stay at this motel. There was a restaraunt on site - albeit overpriced - a pool, the river across the street and a bar/snack bar type place. Our kids loved the room - it was a Jr suite with a "wall bed". The room was clean and neat -...

Cedar Lodge was the only hotel available during our 2 day visit to Yosemite. I booked the room 4 months in advance and was hoping for the best. After reading other reviews I didn't expect much but, was surprised.... we were comfortable. There isn't alot to choose from in Yosmite, the other hotels (perhpas 2 or 3) were already booked...

We stayed here for two nights and found the room fine. I noticed that the cleaners had missed a few things (an old sweet on the floor, for example, a number of cobwebs), but other than that it was clean and I wasn't really expecting much better anyway. The room was quiet, but tired. Think it might be time to...

The only good thing about this hotel was the location! Everything about the hotel itself was a disappointment. The staff were not friendly or helpful, the room was very basic which I could live with if the appliances worked but they were faulty. Hairdryer didn't work, fridge didn't work, fridge was so old it should have been thrown out when...

Stayed for one night at Cedar Lodge, right on the main road leading from Yosemite, but you felt as if you were still in the park, surrounded by trees and by the side of the river. Lovely sitting out on the balcony watching the world go by. Yosemite is a stunning park, with breathtaking views, i enjoyed every minute we...

They only have wireless at the lobby and they charge you $9/hour for that! Ridiculous for the price we have paid. Plus, the guy at the lobby was holding a cold face. Will not recommend to others.
