“Satisfied Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

We stayed in the Double Queen Deluxe room. The room was spacious and mostly clean but showed its age. There was hair left the bed sheet the first night, but we didn't bother changing room after a long day of flying and driving through a big storm. Kids enjoyed the swimming pool. Ground was well kept and gives a "resort" feel. Loved the trees around the property. Convenient access to the Yosemite (south?) entrance. After seeing the Ahwahnee we weren't sure if it's really worth the extra $$$ to stay there, giving that it's so dry and dusty around the Ahwahnee in August (when we visited). Plus the way the park is, there's still a long drive to the other site from where Ahwahnee is anyways (because you have to drive back out to turn into the other side of the loop). Good value overall, but we'll probably try another lodge the next time however, unless the hotel is renovated. Food and service in the main restaurant was good and price reasonable.

Pros: good value; comfortable room and bed; outdoor/indoor pools with jacuzzi; arcade; archery & rock wall climbing available; bike rentals; good service; variety of restaurants on the property; good location for exploring Wawona and the Mariposa Grove; complimentary coffee/tea in lobby; great concierge service.

Cons: inattentative and rather inconsistent service from Front Desk; showers with low water pressure; hour to Glacier Point and hour and half to Yosemite Valley by car.

Score: 8.5/10

I attended a conference at the Tenaya Lodge and brought my family as well. We stayed here for three nights. The amenities at this Lodge were very good and its proximity to the Park entrance makes it ideal if you want to explore the Mariposa Grove and Wawona. My children were never bored with all the activities to choose from - they particularly enjoyed the pool, arcade and the different restaurants from pizza to pub fare to more expensive meals. They wished they had climbed the rock wall and archery but did not have the time after hiking and fishing while visiting the Giant Sequoias and Wawona. We also ran out of time to rent bikes to ride the nearby bike paths and hike to a nearby waterfall. The Concierge, Valet, and restaurant servers were knowledgeable and friendly. Overall, the Tenaya Lodge was ideal for our family and I would recommend the it without hesitation. The only negative was the front desk where service was inconsistent (some did not want to make eye contact with you or were too busy to; some of the women could have put their hair up and look more presentable as would be expected in a Lodge of this stature), shower water pressure was low and a long drive if you wanted to reach Yosemite Valley.

Room Tip: Our room was fairly quiet - it was on the second floor of the East Wing. Parking was close by -

Green Features: Eco friendly Lodge as you would expect with its proximity to a National Park.

We appreciate you sharing your thoughts, marcusaurelius. We’re pleased to hear that you and your family had a great stay using both professional and recreational offerings at Tenaya. As a family-friendly resort, it’s wonderful to know your kids had fun and found plenty (maybe too much!) to do. While it sounds as though you received excellent service for the majority of your stay, we are sorry you felt as though the front desk staff was inattentive and inconsistent. As a Four Diamond resort, we want guests to have an exceptional experience across the board. Thanks for your recommendation and we hope to see you again.

We stayed in one of the cottage rooms. The first night had its challenges - the cottage rooms area is separate from the main lodge and dark dark dark, especially as several of the lights (including over our cottage door) were out. The main lodge had a boisterous convention going and service was overwhelmed when we sought assistance. All that said when we raised a few concerns the next morning, the staff absolutely did right by us - moved us to a more accessible (and brighter!) cottage location plus other consdierations. This was not a frugal option, but I'm not sure where else this close to Yosemite would be. We ended up having a lovely time. Thank you to Dean, Hillary our server, and the rest of the team.

Room Tip: The cottage rooms are more expensive than the main lodge, but totally worth it. Quiet and dark, it...

Where to begin? A great hotel situated amidst pinewoods and amazing scenery. The room was spacious, comfortable and peaceful. Reception area warm and welcoming with comfortable seating and decor in keeping with the surroundings.
Sierra restaurant provided one of the best meals of my three week visit to California. Breakfast provided a huge selection of delicious food.

Staff were helpful, efficient and friendly.

Loved the gift store, so many beautiful things.

Given the opportunity, would return again.

Stayed in a cotrage room. Excellent privacy. Just enough room for 3 adults. My wife used the Spa and recommends it. Gym is great. Outdoor pool is excellent. Drive to Yosemite valley is aporox 35 minutes. Revommend ordering breakfast versus buffet.

Room Tip: Cottage rooms give a little more room and privacy. Located amongst the sugar pines.

This was recommended to me by a friend.

Stayed in Tenaya Lodge 6/2014. The lodging was nice, but the cost was on the high side. For lodgings this distant, the cost should not be as high.

The lodge is about 1.25 hours away from Yosemite Village, so be sure to factor the drive time into your daily plans.

The basic wifi service is adequate for phone browsing needs.

The pools over there are really nice.

The room was very clean and comfortable. The shower and tub had issues, which was a little surprising considering the cost of the room; for the cost, this should be inspected beforehand.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The gift shop could stay open a little later, and the restaurant could open a little earlier for those who have early plans in Yosemite village.

I plan to return here again someday.

Room Tip: 3rd floor setup was nice.
