We had a family room which had a Queen sized bed and a bunk bed which was a double at the bottom with a single at the top. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was very clean and had the most beautiful view.We were only there for 2 nights and unfortunately, the weather wasn't very good,...

Yosemite Valley Lodge was an excellent choice for our brief stay in Yosemite. It is a wonderful location, quite central to all of Yosemite's sites. It is a quick walk to Yosemite Walls, wake up early and experience the falls to yourself as I did - you might even get lucky enough to catch a rainbow over Yosemite Falls. Our...

As other reviewers have expressed, the location is amazing, and the views stunning. Yes the rooms are not 5 star, but we had a queen bedroom and it was warm, big enough and clean. We stayed upstairs in the cedar block and had no issues with noise and were close to the shops, restaurants etc. Yosemite is amazing and we...

We were lucky enough to stay for 5 nights but in 2 different rooms. Check in was friendly and helpful. Both had a great view from balcony so was nice to sit outside in the evening to watch the sunset. Rooms had a nice rustic but clean feel and were spacious, good showers and toiletries dispensed, dressing area and a...

I've stayed in national park lodges before and wasn't expecting much. This place was great. The location is great - right by the falls with plenty of food options close by. What surprised me is the charming mid-century vibe of the hotel rooms. My family of 4 was totally happy with our two bedroom room. Heads up that parking is...

Unless you are willing to shell out for the Majestic Hotel (formerly the Ahwanee) this is really the place to stay in Yosemite. From our room we could hear the roaring falls, and what a better sound to fall asleep to! The room is an average motel room. Could use more outlets, more hooks for hanging jackets, and more racks...

The cabins could use some TLC. But were clean & comfortable. We had a full bed with a twin & they brought in a cot to accommodate 4 people.we had a bath with shower & it was heated. The immediate area had shops, groceries & restaurants. Plenty to do, bike rental & shuttle buses.

With the limited hotel facilities in Yosemite, the Yosemite Lodge is one of our favorite places to stay since it is near Yosemite Falls and Yosemite Village. And with multiple dining options, everyone can find something to eat. Having stayed at the Lodge for over 50 years, it is apparent that Aramark, the current concessionaire, has renovated some of the...

The location is unrivaled, but the hotel itself is quite old and need a face lift. The family rooms are quite small to accommodate five people, and the beds are very uncomfortable. Although understood as being in a national park, some more details and refurbishing will be very helpful for the travelers.
