“Good but Pricey”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Tenaya Lodge is just outside Yosemite at the south entrance and is a beautiful place in a great location. A variety of activities and services are available - at additional cost - and it would be an OK place to stay for a multi-day visit to Yosemite though it does take an hour to get to Yosemite Valley. Rooms in the main hotel are very comfortable though a bit noisy. Cottages are also available. Service is very good but restaurant food is only so-so. And the rate, with a very good buffet breakfast, is about $300 a night.

Room Tip: In the main hotel get a room away from the lobby.

Very comfortable accommodations with "go out of their way" friendly staff. Location near Yosemite a plus...great place to rest up between hikes! Ate here once during our three day stay and the food was good-well presented and reasonably priced.

Very comfortable and quiet with amenities like spa services that I don't often take advantage of. In this case, I'm glad I did! The Embers Restaurant was a wonderful fine dining experience. Other restaurants on the premises were family friendly, including lovely outdoor places to gather in good weather.

Green Features: Very pleased that the seafood offered is from the Monterey Bay Aquarium approved list.

Lovely scenic setting, overlooking pine forest and only a very short drive into Yosemite national park. We stayed in the cottages which were very clean and quiet, however decor appeared quite dated and could do with a decorative overhaul, as could the main building and restaurants. Two of the four restaurants were closed during our stay, we were only there three nights but due to limited food choice if you were there longer you could easily get bored as it is a good 20 min drive to the nearest town. Excellent concierge to book trips and tours, we did a flashlight hike which was great.

We arrived at the lodge to be greeted by an indifferent and rude duet of front sea attendants. The rooms a are dated and dirty. Concierge is tired and offered basic and less than enthusiastic advice. The restaurant staff was courteous and polite but the food was disappointing. This is a poorly maintained corporate enterprise.

I loved the experience. I found the staff helpful and the location unmatched. The rooms were a bit dated but it is an historic landmark. Breakfast menu was fantastic, fresh and reasonably priced. I will return here.

Archery, swimming indoor and out, arcade, etc. nice restaurants on premises. Just right outside Yosemite. East wing easily accessible for wheelchairs, as is entire building. Quiet and restful! Beautiful setting.

Room Tip: East wing is right next to indoor pool and has guest laundry
