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.
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.
Kitchenette was nice.
Located just outside Yosemite entrance. Clean and comfortable, if a bit dated.
Location Very old sheets, old Capet old everything
river view room was great needs a little sprucing up-ice machines inoperative-general room conditions could stand some improvements
We were originally given a room that already had someone in it.
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.
Room was unique with a loft area. Good location very close to Yosemite. Room was facing the highway with a lot of noise. No view at all.
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.
perfect location, nice to have the kitchenette, fine view, comfortable room room needs updating. one stove burner did not work.
The location is the best for exploring Yosemite, about 10 minutes from the valley. We have had good experiences with this property in the past. This is the second time in a row we have been stuck in the front building next to the highway instead of one of the many buildings overlooking the Merced river. The worst part however was that the power went out around 9:30 PM and there was no phones or generator to operate safety lights. Of course everything is electric powered including the kitchenette, heater and phone. No way to heat food, no way to heat the room in the sub-freezing temperature and no way to call the front desk or for help in an emergency. I dont know what time the power came back on because we fell asleep about 2 hours into the outage since there was nothing to do but lay in the total darkness!
Nice hotel in a beautifull environment. A little overpriced.
We thoroughly enjoyed the organised trip with bus driver/guide Marsha to Yosemite National Park. Marsha was extremely well informed and very knowledgeable about the park Finding our way about the hotel is very confusing and it would be very beneficial for visitors to have more maps/guidance along coridors as to which direction to turn for the main lobby, restaurants etc. We ,and many other visitors we saw, frequently lost our way!!
Wonderful family lodge, with plenty to do for the whole family. Hotel could not deal with a lack of available hot water to the sink/shower, due to the number of guests staying at the hotel.
We liked EVERYTHING - staff that would go an extra mile, rooms, food, friendly, totally enjoyable 3 days! None
Perfect for exploring Yosemite National Park
Accommodations No room service door hanger, so Room Service did not arrive until 3 p.m. when we were already back from our visit to Yosemite Park, taking a nap. My wife had to decline the service.
The facilities were excellent and the upkeep of the property was first rate. I would stay here again if the circumstances dictated. Nothing
Proximity to Yosemite, roomy room, gift shop was reasonably priced, Difficult to navigate hotel, food selection was meager and over-priced, wine list fair, atmosphere good
enjoyed the hotel very much just wish it was closer to yosemite valley
The romantic atmosphere. The toilet seat was so low to the water that my husband's private parts dangle into the water when he sat down. It bothered me also.
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.
Had everything we needed in one place
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 .
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.
$1.80 for a cup of crappy coffee in the lobby. Why not complimentary?
Food at restaurant was so so
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.
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.
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.
Close to highway 41 and Yosemite. The heater was very loud. Several times woke up to turn it off due to rattling and clicking sounds. Otherwise nice hotel, HOWEVER......woke up in the morning to our gas cap on the ground. Someone had syphoned over half a tank of gas outfoxed our expedition! That's ALOT of gas. We called the office, no security cameras and their 1 security guard happened to be off that night. Worst part is...they were aware. Staff response was "ugh! Again?! Havened to 5cars yesterday! It's a problem we have". Really? No notification to your patrons? No extra effort for increased security. Not ONE SIGN of "park at your own risk. Not responsible for loss or damage". No notice on any paper or receipt and no verbal communication. Spoke with manager who blew it off. Complete lack of customer service or even sense of responsibility. At least make patrons aware. We will not be back.
close to yosemite NP and close to businesses in Oakhurst. Rooms need updating, layout of rooms is tricky.
The staff were very accommodating. Room was spacious and had all the amenities. Great location! The only negative - pillows were not comfy.
homemade breakfast was awesome. better than 3 star hotel breakfast. i believe i had made a great decision to stay this place cus I couldnt see any better place while I was driving the area. The Inn was located very close to the south entrance means you dont need to drive extra 25 to 30 miles. The room was very clean and quiet. I hope other people also enjoy their stay at this place. It is my first writing review after the trip. nothing.
This place COULD be cool in the summer, when things are actually open. Still nothing special, though. I booked the place since they advertised a hot tub and a cool-looking bar and restaurant. When we got there we were told all of those things were closed for the season. We tried to get a partial refund because of the false advertising but they were uncooperative.
Less than 5 minutes away from South Entrance to Yosemite
There was nothing we did not like. We enjoyed our stay.
good stop over before Yosemite. Very clean and the people are very nice.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
right downtown in walking distance to everything
Had a Bed and breakfast feel but still had the privacy of a hotel room. Walking distance to great food and quaint shops. It was still about an hour drive to Yosemite but the nicest on the outskirtsz
Location. Size of the room. Walk in shower. My overall experience was affected primarily by the noisy tenants above! It wasn't the room itself. Very impressed. Our unfortunate experience was upstairs noisy neighbors up most of the night. I was awakened several times!

Location from town. Would not like some of the front rooms, we were in the back.
They had breakfast included, free parking, and free movie rentals. Our room door was left ajar for hours after the room was cleaned, and there were dead bugs squished on the walls of the bathroom and bedroom.
It is a family inn managed by his owner. Very nice place. Kind of being at home. Very close to south entrance of Yosemite national park.
The hosts are wonderful, with great advice on places to see when you don't have a lot of time. Our room was extremely comfortable and spacious, with a sitting area and fireplace. This is a great place to stay if you're going to explore the Yosemite area.
Charming, beautiful, and such wonderful service. We will definitely come back again and again. Nothing. I couldn't come up with one complaint. It was a perfect stay.
Comfortable beds ( two queens that we were looking for) and location, close to south entrance to Yosemite NO. Worn- potholed parking lot, worn furnishings, some cat box smells from the lovely 3 cats.
The friendly staff are happy to share the colorful past of this historical hotel and its conversions from cattle ranch to post-WWII military hospital to Hollywood getaway to the family retreat and special occation hotel it has become today. All the rooms have character and special touches to achieve the overall Western feel of what was originally a ranch. The resident cats are friendly and fun to see around the hotel: Hunter greeted us at the reception desk along with Moo; Valentine (or Valley Girl) was usually curled up somewhere; and if you're lucky, you'll see John Wayne sauntering around the grounds. Our corner room (Sarah's Room) was wonderful! We loved being there and hearing the stories of the ranch. Our only disappointment was the restaurant is only open Thursday- Saturday and our stay began on Sunday. Next year we will plan better so we can invite our family to join us there for dinner.
Really lovely B&B -- the proprietors are exceedingly friendly and helpful, the breakfast is excellent and the rooms are very cozy. It's a bit far from Yosemite valley (about an hour and a half to Half Dome Village without traffic) but if you're okay with staying a bit further out I highly recommend it. Close to Oakhurst as well, which has some nice restaurants and grocery stores.
Restaurant was very nice for a small town and extremely friendly waitress. Air conditioner in the room did not work at check in. When I told them about it they jumped right on it and got it fixed right away, great job.
good value no time for breakfast
We paid extra for an in-room spa that did not work and I am still trying to get a refund.
