Our family stayed in an adjoining cabin with a shared covered deck. Our view was GREAT, overlooking a redwood and sequoia forest. Trails led to a creek for us all to play in. It was a great experience for us! No, this is not in any way upscale lodging! Beds were passable, everything was pretty clean, & and needs were...

The location right at the entrance of the park is a great plus point. Mariposa grove was also short drive away. We got a cabin facing the wooded area. Cabins as such, are are not too big, but come with the standard mini fridge, microwave and coffee kettle. Sheets were clean and there was wi-fi access in the room. Breakfast...

This property is found at the top of White Chief Mountain Road which is well marked from Hwy 41. It reminds me of an old time mountain place from the 50's. Amenities (coffee make and supplies, microwave, mini fridge, water bottles, large flat screen TV) are in the cabins. Our cabin was clean and everything we needed was there. It...

This lodge is very close to the Yosemite Park entrance and located in a forest-like environment . It is also far enough from the road to avoid hearing the traffic . Considering this location the price is very good . Breakfast is not included but the lodge has a restaurant that has a good selection for breakfast and dinner ....

My friend booked this hotel and after reading the TripAdvisor reviews I thought she had made a big mistake. However, the lodge was not nearly as bad as some of the reviews indicated it would be. We stayed in cabin #3 which has a porch and overlooks a woodsy area. The room had just been painted and new carpet installed....

We book this loocation for two reasons: location( 5 min drive to South gate of Yosemite) and price. So expectation were to fair level, altough we arrive late we've been welcomed by the owner. We spend 2 nights there and we got a back side room with 2 beds, room was clean and beds Ok. Breakfast is not spectacular and...

Clean rooms, shower and basic equipment - that's more than enough to spend the night and move on. Place is located apart from the main road so it's peaceful and quiet but it may be hard to find. If you think hot water isn't really hot just wait a minute or two. They have cafeteria where you can make waffles...

Its very basic accommodation but its clean & comfortable. The staff are just lovely & helpful - its in a very quiet secluded location. Obviously this isnt to everyone's liking Its probably the closest place to Mariposa Grove

First, this place is a little hard to find, the sign is on the main highway, but as you turn off and go up the hill, you think you are driving into a neighborhood, doesn't look as if there is a lodge up there, then boom, you round a corner, and there it is. Small place and a little strange....
