This hotel is aptly named, as there is indeed a fantastic view from your individual balcony. The room itself was spacious and I liked having a fridge and microwave. The bed was satisfactory, but not excellent. Although the room appeared clean, it is quite rustic so it doesn't feel pristine. Our room was missing a remote for the TV and when I phoned the office they said they did not have any extra and to look under the bed. No luck.
There was a fireplace in the room, which we did not use and a jacuzzi in the bathroom, which we also did not use, but both are nice touches.
We ordered pizza from the restaurant on site and it was mostly tasty, but the crust was burned. The breakfast buffet in the morning was standard fare, and as typical for these, most selections were high in sugar, carbs and fat. I ate fruit and special K cereal (although my husband had a feast).
Overall, this lodge is a great location with a fantastic view. It was satisfactory for one night, but would not have wanted an extended stay. It is also noteworthy that due to it's proximity to Yosemite National park, there is not internet or cell service.
