Positive Reviews

An old-world classic

This hotel is a charming, old-world classic with lots of personality. Most rooms open onto a stunning scenic view. While the lodge is set far off the beaten path, it is still quite close to Yosemite Park's main entrance for those who want to enjoy the beauty of nature.

Peaceful and serene

The lodge is far from any other type of civilization. For those looking to get back to nature and enjoy some peace and quiet, this lodge provides just that. The only amenities are those provided by the land and through physical exertion.

Bonding time with family and friends

There are no distractions at this hotel, including no televisions in the room and no WiFi on most of the property. Instead, family and friends can focus on each other. At night, listen to the piano player in the dining area, play games, look at the stars, and enjoy a lingering dinner.

Negative Reviews

Old-world means old-fashioned

The hotel is old. While that aspect is part of the charm, it also brings its own share of issues. There are areas that are runned down and could use updating, as well as areas that need refurbished for creature comforts. Some areas, and rooms, are just poorly-equipped and outfitted.

Expensive with no other options

The hotel, and dining options, are expensive, especially when considering there are no other options and amenities that come with the cost. The free breakfast is a light meal, and not hardy enough for those taking a day of hiking or some other sport. With few other nearby options for food and entertainment, be prepared to pay the cost.

Sharing a bath with strangers

The shared baths can be unpleasant, especially if your shared bath mates have unpleasant bath habits. Also, be prepared to wait turns for showers, which can be a problem for early birds needing to travel.
