This hotel had a great location as it's the first hotel to the south of the park. The rooms were a bit dated, but clean and comfortable. We were in a f

The on site dining was very good and nice to come back to after a day in Yosemite.

The hotel is near the entrance to Yosemite and some great hiking. It's still about an hour into the central point/ visitor centre as the roads require some concentration as there are lots of twists and turns. The drive is stunning!

The room was really nice, comfy beds and a good sized bathroom. There was a heating/ air con system but it was noisy, luckily we did not need it much.

The hotel has an indoor pool which was something we were looking forward too ( there is also an outdoor one in the summer). Sadly it was a real let down as it was far to cold, the room it was in was cold as well so you could not sit and dry off. The two hot tubs were good.

There are a couple of restaurants, there was always a long queue and they had a strange system of seating, we found tables were empty or they would sit you on one far larger than you party size. The food was good but pricey and the service was fairly slow. The nearest restaurants/ shops outside of the hotel are about 20 mins away again on some bendy roads.

The hotel is on high ground, it snowed when we were there so be prepared with snow chains!

Choices are limited in this area. This lodge has a lot to offer but it comes at a price. Beautiful pool and nice restaurant. The concierge helped us pick a tour for the next day which was convenient and a nice choice. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was clean and comfortable.

We stayed in the cottages, two couples and one child. We had a great time fire place in the cottage in main bedroom. Walking distance to main hotel and a pizza place located near the cottages. Close to Yosemite entrance makes this an idea place to stay when visiting the park.

I had no reservation (and no juice in my cell phone), so I walked in at 6 pm and got a great room at a very good price ($129 with breakfast buffet included). The room was immaculate and nicely decorated. Wonderful toiletries. The staff was exceptionally helpful and pleasant. The person who checked me in really went above and beyond to make sure I was aware of the amenities and restaurant hours. (This place is pretty far from everywhere, so you should plan on eating all meals here.) I’d love to go back when I have the time to appreciate the spa facilities and outdoor activities. The breakfast buffet was served in a lovely room with a fireplace and a great view. It was a big spread and was quite scrumptious. The warm bread pudding with apples was terrific. One thing they could definitely improve—the coffee—weak and wimpy. The server was very cheery and left a carafe which unfortunately did not keep it piping hot.

We recently stayed one night in a cottage and one night in a lodge room at Tenaya Lodge. The cottage room was nice but not great. The room in the Lodge was very nice and clean. The lobby was decorated with a huge Christmas tree and lots of holiday decorations. It has a nice atmosphere including seating around a large fireplace. The Lodge has numerous restaurants to select from so dining is not an issue. We also signed up for the Discover Yosemite Tour. Our guide, Steve, did a great job touring the park and providing very interesting stories and pictures as we drove thru the park. It is a lengthy day since the tour starts at 8:30 and ends at 5 but the scenery is awesome. If you have children the lodge includes an indoor pool and ice skating. You will definitely like your stay at Tenaya Lodge.

Room Tip: If you like rooms a little more isolated the cottages are ok but the rooms in the Lodge are very nic...

Like so many others we can't say enough for this place. We were there for our 40th Wedding Anniversary for 2 nights. The staff, to a person, make our stay one of the best ever. Can't say enough about Embers Restaurant on premises. The wait staff, the food, the ambiance all were perfect for our anniversary dinner. Suggest the Spa Suite if it's a special occasion! Lot's of options at the hotel for activity ~ especially love the outdoor fire pit next to the ice skating rink. Great place for roasting marshmallows - saw lot's of families enjoying this. This was an incredibly romantic stay ~ if it's such an occasion for you arrange for the turn down service. With this room breakfast was complementary. We'd come back in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Spa suite with view! Lot's of extra room, jacuzzi tub. Only drawback was very audible sound fr...
