Great location. Rooms have a small fridge with freezer, two burner stove, toaster, coffee maker, dishes and some pots and pans. Large rooms and large balcony. We had a "mountain view" which was cheaper and looked towards the river, but with a parking lot and pool in between, but still lots of mountain to be seen! Heat pump fan could not be set to stay on all the time so it woke us up over and over again throughout the night. Room became far too warm to sleep if we turned it off. Carpets, walls, bathroom grout, etc. need scrubbing, but counters, sheets etc seemed clean.
Located just outside Yosemite entrance. Clean and comfortable, if a bit dated.
It is a beautiful setting. Our sliding doors opened up to the river. The pizza restauraunt was good. The breakfast buffet at the other restaurant was ok. We did not try more on the menu. The place was in bad repair. One of the electric burners in the kitchenette didn't heat, and when I moved the pan, it sent out sparks. The people above us overflowed their tub. When I called to report the water coming through our bathroom ceiling, the said they knew about it, and were dealing with it. They never came by or called back to check the status of our room. I found a clothing article from a previous guest on the floor, making me wonder how thorougly they had cleaned. I found out that the washing of the dishes in the kitchenette was our responsibility, and that there was no professional sanitizing of the dishes between guests. This place looks like it was nice when it was first built, but now it is not properly cared for, and has sunk below the level of a motel 6 stay. The natural setting on the river is the only thing it has going for it.
Location Very old sheets, old Capet old everything
Pretty locations and easy access to Yosemite. Rooms are well appointed to make food. Liked large sitting room outside bedroom. Carpet could use cleaning.
Great location right outside the park. Rooms are clean and enjoyed having the kitchenette during our stay. The restaurant is also surprisingly decent and convenient. Biggest downside is the Internet situation. Internet is not included but can be purchased for $9.99 for a 24 hour period. Fine, we paid but only to realize only one device at a time was allowed to connect and you have to go through a process to disconnect one and than connect another. Super lame.
river view room was great needs a little sprucing up-ice machines inoperative-general room conditions could stand some improvements
Location, next to the gate of Yosemite. Staff was friendly and helpful. Upon arrival the rooms were clean. Quality of maid service. Dishes were not clean. Did nothing much more than make beds and replace towels. Lock was loose and hard to open. They only provided one key because they were booked full and did not have enough key blanks.
I called to change my reservation from 2 nights to 1 and the person on the phone told me I had to cancel the whole reservation and re-reserve. When she went to re-reserve a room for the one night there were no rooms available. Odd because I just cancelled the resrvation. Too bad the system doesn't update quickly enough to show the available room. Too bad I did not get to stay there at all. Very bummed.
We were originally given a room that already had someone in it.
The river, the coziness of the room with a fireplace and a little kitchenette.
Considering the lack of lodging options both and out of Yosemite in the high tourist season, Yosemite View Lodge fit the bill. We had a Riverview room and the river was indeed spectacular. The room was clean, beds were comfortable,the kitchenette well stocked, and the hotel is as close to Yosemite as you can get without being in the park. (It wasn't the hotel's fault of course, but the June landslide on Highway 140 did force us to take a two-hour detour through the park to get back one day, so that was unfortunate). We were there for a family reunion and would have liked to have had our rooms closer together. We also didn't find a convenient place to gather our troops for our potluck dinner, but resolved that by commandeering a couple of tables at poolside one evening and it worked out just fine.
Spacious and clean room No cellular service and wifi is not free after you pay $200 per night or more. After paying $10 for 24hrs wifi still it doesn't work well.
Room was clean and confortable There was an extra charge for WiFi which was not disclosed until after you booked the reservation. The restaurant did not open for breakfast until 7:30 and lacked variety in the choices.
You could tell that the room was cleaned regularly, but everything (bed, chairs, shower, etc) was well traveled. Quiet location with close proximity to the valley. Onsite dining isn't great, but the convenience is nice.
I liked the overall comfort of all amenities hotel offers. And how inexpensive the hotel costs. I did not like how staff did not inform me of restaurant hours and not very welcoming . Needs better staff attitude and more ways to inform public of their hotel amenities. Also there is no wifi and no cell phone coverage.
$1.80 for a cup of crappy coffee in the lobby. Why not complimentary?
I like the fact that it was close to Yosemite National Park and that it was about a 15 minute drive there. I enjoyed the look of the whole place especially with all the bears around. I enjoyed all of the surroundings view. The food there was GREAT!!! From the buffet to the bar and grill. Fast service and well worth the costs. The staff was great and gave out great information and did not sugar coat anything. Very helpful when it came to information. My wife and I really enjoyed the picnic are across the street we really enjoyed the river and the picnic table there. Very romantic and very quiet area. I did not like the fact of paying for a king size room and getting a room with 2 queen beds and over the top of the banquet area where my wife and I had to hear the music and the actual party. They should have taken that in consideration when they gave us the room. i did like the fact of no cell phone signal let alone wifi that is as slow as dial up, but that has nothing to do with the lodge, that's just the location. I did not like that they did not have Coke to drink. A little more variety to drink would have been nice.
The service at the front desk, store, bar, restaurant was all around excellent. Everyone was very friendly and super accommodating. The room was clean and quiet. Not too far from Yosemite Nat'l Park. We go to Yosemite every year and I'll definitely stay at Cedar Lodge again.
Food at restaurant was so so
Cheap price compared to the other accommodation. Pretty close to Yosemite. Easy check in /check out . No phone reception . No wifi . The room is pretty old , but everything is working . The fans and the heaters are really loud . Even if your neighbors turn them on . But I would stay there again anyways .
Had everything we needed in one place
Great location close to Yosemite park entrance. Nicely located across from the river. Pleasant outdoor areas, including the area on the river. The restaurant was just 'okay'. Our delux room with 2 queen beds and a sofa had only one chair. We would have liked an option with one queen or king bed, a sofa , and a table with 2 chairs. We are a mature couple no children traveling with us. Also, the refrigerator was nice to have but very noisy. We ended up unplugging it.
Family atmosphere, very close to Yosemite Park
very friendly people, small but very clean room, great bathroom!
It is a homie feel. Beds needs replacememts.
lovely hotel, great stmosphere, staff are lovely - only concern we booked it as it stated 10 mins from yosemite. it is actually 35 minute drive to the yosemite park -
Friendly staff offering personal attention; old-fashioned, comfortable room. Quiet. Ample, satisfying breakfast included.
The motel had free wifi, an excellent location, it was very clean and had a great shower. There was complimentary coffee and tea as well as a microwave and fridge. The motel is relatively close to the Yosemite park (drive) and there is a diner next door. There is a 24/7 laundry place that works with 25cents pieces. There might have been some more blankets as it got really cold and I prefer to sleep without the heating on.
It took more than an hour to drive to the valley.
The hotel is in a great location right near the entrance for the park. Te staff were very helpful. The room was clean and the wi fi worked well. There is also a great diner within walking distance where we ate every night.
good place to stay before entering the national park.Restaurant near by where good breakfast could be bought before starting out.Rooms better than expected.
Wifi wasn't working at some points, late at night worked pretty good
The Staff was very helpful when I needed information to get to Yosemite and told me I did not even need to purchase maps as they would be provided at the gate of the park.
There aren't many hotels near Yosemite Village. This hotel was at an acceptable distance for us (1h to 1h30 driving), so we took it altough the price was rather high. Room was big and clean. There is only possibility for breakfast in a typically American restaurant nearby. It serves only unhealty and fat food, so make sure to have some food reserve with you when arriving at the hotel.
Free Wi-Fi, and parking, and quaint town and building Rooms were small and run down, beds were lumpy, too many stuffed animals around, no place to put luggage. All and all, too expensive for what you get. Also, we found a bug between the mattress that caused us concern about the possibility of bed bugs. While not sure if it was one, we'd never stay again.
My room was quiet and easy to access. The office staff was helpful and friendly. It was a beautiful location. My room smelled like cigarette smoke, the shower curtain had moderate amount or mildew and staining, I had a lot of spiders in my room, the room was drafty, the bed was not comfortable, and I had no cell reception.

Kitchen to store and cook food, location from Yosemite, the place was quiet. Cafe had rude staff, one of the showers, Wifi doesn't work in rooms and isn't great in the cafe area
The computer system was down for check-in and when trying to order meals, Kitchen staff were a bit disorganized. Rooms were clean and nice to have shampoo, conditioner, lotion and hand soap readily available. Overall, nice stay. The kitchen staff were disorganized and had trouble getting meals completed on time. Kitchen helpers were distracted with each other. Otherwise, Chef was hard working, and food was exceptionally good.
Beautiful, with great energies! Proximity to Yosemite National Park, a gorgeous one hour drive away... The ambiance in general. The CafÃ© serves delicious breakfast and all kinds of food. They will even pack your lunch to go for the trails!! I loved everything. I got a non-heated tent and I couldn't exactly bring my own heating device because I traveled from out of state; but if you do travel from in-state in a car and you can bring your own portable heating device, I advice you to do so!:)
Beds were comfortable. Room was clean. Cafe food was excellent. Spa nice addition. Staff very helpful. Loved being able to take a bus to Yosemite. Exceeded our expectations.
The food was amazing, which was unexpected. It truly looks like a small campground with cabins on it. I did not expect a 'food experience.' I also loved the rustic feel, the spa and closeness to Mariposa, for a lil day shopping. I loved it here! It was great-its definitely rustic and quiet, so if thats not your thing, this is not for you. However, our room w 3 beds was charming, great water pressure. And again...the food, cheap and delicious!

Everything! Beautiful surroundings, amazing cafe food, friendly staff, and cleanliness all around. Gave us the wrong keys twice for one tent cabin. They were very quick to fix the issue.
