Every summer we travel West to camp in Yosemite with family. We have younger ones with us that enjoy exploring the Park and hike and photograph as much as we can that Muir and Adams did with camera and pen so long ago. We always enjoy this beautiful place. This winter someone suggested taking some winter photos in Yosemite. I...

Yosemite has always been a "religious" experience, seeing God's wonders in such a time worn crucible. We think the appeal for Yosemite is ageless. If I were to recommend additional marketing, it would be to see more school kids. This could be in the form of trips won for environmental projects like planting seedlings in areas that could use a...

I'd recommend staying here. The Yosmiite Lodge has clean and nice rooms, good amendities, very friendly staff offering great service, delicious food. We rented bikes to ride around the valley and really enjoyed the wonderful scenery.

The Yosemite Lodge provided a perfect location for our family to enjoy the Yosemite Valley. We were hoping to stay at the Ahwanee, however they did not have any accommodations that worked for our family. We were completely pleased with the staff, facility, cafeteria, shops, and most importantly our rooms. We always travel with 4 children...and everyone was happy. We...

Close to the bike path yet a little away from the bustle of the center of the village. There are restaurant options which are OK. We like to bring BBQ stuff in and bike over to the park and have a cook out. Breath taking view of Yosemite Falls. It's clean and there are family room options which we try...

Expect a "spartan, small cabin" type of experience. It's overpriced for the quality of the room but, other than camping, Yosemite Lodge At The Falls is the most economical, convenient lodging for an overnight in the park to gain the benefit of being able to fully enjoy Yosemite's natural beauty.

I'd recommend this as the best value in the valley. Rooms are clean and recently updated and the amenities and location of the lodge are hard to beat. Be sure to get your name in early at the restaurant and enjoy a cocktail beside the huge fire pit in the lodge.

Would definitely recommend staying here. Great service, comfortable rooms and lots of helpful staff to assist with planning activities in Yosemite NP. We stayed in February, expecting snow at Badger Pass - first time in 25 years there has been this little snow at this time of year. We switched snow activities we had planned for long hikes on trails...

The lodge itself was clean and well-provisioned - though obviously the best thing by far is it's superb location within the park. However, I also received the best customer service here that I did during my entire 3 week trip to America. The older gentleman at the help/tourist info desk had an incredible knowledge of the area, and spent a...

After consulting with the folks on the accommodations line for the Park we settled on a family room at the Lodge.We are a family of five with three teenage girls. It was more of a studio than a mutli room suite. We had a very spacious king bed. In the corner was a bunk setup with a double on the...
