Yosemite Valley is one of the premiere nature sights in the United States. Drive down into the valley and a special experience awaits. The vistas are absolutely gorgeous, surrounded by high cliffs of granite rock, and one very long and beautiful waterfall. Wherever you go, either by car, valley bus, or hike, there are exceptional vistas. Trails range from the...

A last minute booking anywhere is a gamble, even more so at a year-round popular destination like Yosemite. An overnight trip warranted staying in the valley floor so we booked the Lodge as a cost-effective option in early January '15. Yosemite takes your breath away - what an amazing place! Especially in the cold, hard winter light. The Lodge itself...

We spent two nights here while exploring the park. Our room had everything we needed plus a lovely patio to enjoy. We stayed in the Maple lodge building which was conveniently located across the street from the food court and had an awesome view of the falls!

I went to stay in lodge in the winter and was glad i did. The rooms weren't too expensive and they were walking distance to a great many trail heads. The food court was nice for a cheap-ish meal and the mountain lounge was super. There is a big fireplace in the center of the room that is warm and...

Had only one night to spend at Yosemite with a family member.Booked the room two days in advance, I think it was a good value. We had two double beds, could choose downstairs or upstairs. The best thing is that it is within a short walking distance from the Yosemite falls, so you park your car next to your room...

The accommodations are nothing fancy, but the area is completely beautiful. This puts you at the middle of Yosemite, and by bike you can hit everywhere in the valley pretty quickly. Beautiful views, and a good food court to keep you fed without much hassle.

Beautiful, clean, helpful and confident staff. The food court offered good and basic choices and the family style dining was enjoyable. The dining room was spacious and clean and the bathrooms were always clean. An overall enjoyable trip!
