We stayed in cabin 5 (directly behind main building) for two nights in late June 2013. Gorgeous scenery! We loved the stream separating our cabin from the main building. It was hard to get our two kids out of it. Cabin was nothing fancy. Two double beds, kitchen, bathroom with stall shower. Coffeemaker provided upon request. No living area, per...

We stayed at Tioga Pass Resort June 7-9,2013, the first day that they accepted advance reservations for the 2013 season.

We stayed for 2 nights (July 4th and 5th) in cabin 9 and totally loved it. It is located in a beautiful setting amidst mountains, tall trees, meadows with a creek flowing nearby. A short hike to the top of the hill behind our cabin gave the best possible view of the entire location and it truly represented the Yosemite...

I read ALL of these reviews before staying at Tioga Pass Resort so I wanted to be sure and leave mine! We stayed here June 20-22, 2013. I wish we could have stayed longer. I emailed the address on the website and got a fast response for reservations (within one day). I was beyond excited! We all had an amazing...

We stayed there because it was closest to Yosemite. We didn't have plans to go there, but it was early in the season, so we decided to take a chance. We stayed in cabin 4 with a tiny electric radiator type heater that did next to nothing-asked for an extra heater but was told "no". Too cold to even take...

Only 5 minutes from park entrance. We stayed in Cabin 5 for 3 nights and found they had everything we needed. Full kitchen, tiny bath. Portable electric heater, windows that open. Listened to the stream at night; no road noise. Unfortunately price had gone up $10/night from the time I booked the reservation. Restaurant serves fantastic meals. Large dinner portions...

The management is self-satisfied and self-focused. The front desk staff will volonteer how tired all the work makes them.. They have their way, and that's it. Such basics as answering e mailed requests for reservations is an exampe of what doesn't fit their priorities. ( I sent a series of requests and never got an answer. Not even the courtesy...

Stayed for 5 nights in cabin 1. Loved it. Perfect location for getting out early on some of the longer day hikes. Cabin has a great shower with nice hot water and a good bed. We did not use the kitchen. Note the pots and pans are limited. Ate breakfast every morning at the cafe. Food was great and reasonable....

My friend and I stayed there August 2012. I made the reservation via e mail (no phone communication is possible) and therefore was not aware of the full details of what was included (or rather, not included...) For $140 a night we got a room (cabin 2) with one bed, a toilet and sink. As we were checking out we...

“The "rooms" are close together; we had some noise from a child in the next room (singing until well past 11pm); next time we will opt for a cabin so we have a bit more privacy.”
