Although a little rustic looking from the outside, our room was updated, fairly large, and most importantly clean. We stayed three nights in a first floor room. Parking was available right outside our door. The front desk personnel were friendly and efficient. It’s about a 20-minute drive to the west entrance of Yosemite and another 40 minutes or so to...

We arrived late and had called beforehand to make sure that we could get a late check-in.The owner told us to just ring the phone at the front but she was actually waiting for us when we arrived at 11pm. The room was clean with 2 queen beds. Very comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the bathroom!...

We booked a Deluxe Queen Room directly from the lodge’s website, which was easy and they were quick to confirm our booking via a confirmation email. We had flown in from the UK to San Francisco and after getting our rented car and braving the heavy traffic, we arrived at the Lodge at around 11pm. We had tried to call...

Hannis: I wanted to take the time to personally apologize to you for your bad experience, or more namely, your bad first impression. You are absolutely right--first impressions are very important and clearly your late check in was not handled with grace. We have addressed this situation with management. We do clearly have a Late Check in process and it...

We booked this hotel for 3 nights but due to the fire evacuation we only got to stay one night. On our first morning outing we left the hotel early for our first day in Yosemite. The road was closed/evacuations in place before we returned. Unfortunately for us, that meant all of our belongings were left behind in the hotel....

I found it hard to find a good hotel for us to stay which is relatively close to Yosemite. We initially wanted to stay in a hotel in Yosemite but the prices are quite steep and the hotels in the park look very dated. We opted to stay at Yosemite Gateway Lodge after reading the reviews and looking at the...

This place was perfect for us as we spent the 2 1/2 days at Yosemite - It is 12 miles from the Highway 120 entrance to the park which is still another 1/2 hr to Yosemite Valley - and the Hetch Hetchy entrance road (Evergreen rd) is about 11 miles away but to get to the park it is about...
