  • We noticed this charming lodge on our way to Yosemite Valley Lodge, and although it isn't in the heart of Yosemite Valley, it has a lot of history and Southern style charm. We intended to have lunch h...  more »

  • The location is great! But having to share a bathroom is really a pain... If we could at least have a toilet and sink in the room, that would have made the stay much more enjoyable. The bed was not comfortable... And the pillows were terrible. I did ask for an extra pillow, and the one they brought was great, which tells me that they have better linens (same issue with the towels), but only provide them when you ask for them. There were only two stories, but we ended up on the second, and the showers are also on the second floor, ice is on the first floor... But there is no elevator... So a lot of stair climbing is absolutely going to occur. The room was completely basic... Not even a phone! Cell service is not available at all... And the WiFi is about the same speed as dial-up... So expect to stay unplugged! Overall, we enjoyed our stay because of the gorgeous views and simple living... But were ready to get back home to the conveniences of modern day life after our stay.
  • We stopped in for a visit here on our way into Yosemite. The lodge grounds are beautiful, and stepping into the lobby is like stepping back in time. All three meals are served in their pretty dining room, and they also have an outdoor swimming pool. There is also a NPS visitor center on site - a great place to pick up hiking maps, Junior Ranger activity books, and souvenirs in the gift shop.
  • Absolutely beautiful lodge. The desk clerk was incredibly hospitable and kind. The place was very clean and cozy. I would rate higher if I could. Definitely recommend.
  • One of the most beautiful hotels you will ever see. It's tucked into the trees like it was meant to be there, has a rustic upscale feel to it, and has the best view of the stars you can get. The price was great for the quality, clean, spacious, cozy, fresh forest air smells amazing. When I got there at 3am the front desk guy (James W) set up a personal coffee bar for me and my girlfriend just to help my 3 hour journey home after delivering some luggage to a guest. We talked and I found out all about the place, including free Wi-Fi, breakfast, and a pool. I'm staying there sometime this summer just because of his hospitality, and the amazing surroundings.
  • Beautiful hotel in Yosemite National Park. I felt like I stepped back in time at this establishment, and I loved it! Great piano player for entertainment at night, wonderful restaurant, and I loved the Adirondack chairs on our porch that looked out onto the complex. The only negative I can think of is the lacking WiFi and it takes about 40 minutes to get to the center of the park.

Where to stay in Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park offers something for everyone. Choose from upscale or historic hotels, a well-appointed lodge, motel rooms, rustic cabins, canvas tent cabins, and developed campgrounds. Yosemite Village in the heart of the valley is the most convenient place to stay, but other accommodations line the roads leading to the village. If you can't secure a place inside the park, try the various lodges, inns, bed and breakfasts, cabins, cottages, and motels on the roads leading in from the west. Staying any further out can cost you valuable time that you could be spending hiking, biking, and sightseeing. To escape from the crowds in the valley, reserve a campsite at Crane Flat or Hodgdon Meadow, which are far enough out to provide solitude but close enough to reach major valley attractions in less than half an hour. Campgrounds along Tioga Road see even fewer crowds. If you plan to visit in summer, you must reserve accommodations (even campsites) well in advance, as Yosemite remains extremely popular with both visitors from afar and those based in California.
