First of all, please note that this lodge is a solid hour+ drive (on winding roads) to Yosemite. That said, I think this hotel is best considered as a place for the kids to enjoy themselves (in the pools) for a day or so before the Yosemite adventure starts. (You won't want to commute to the Park from here.)
This hotel is fairly expensive but the feel of the place is... a bit tacky. The dark rooms in this otherwise-decent place need updating. The carpet in ours was frayed and pulling up in places, the wooden doors warped and needing refinishing, the tile and trim in the bathroom were moldy and becoming detached, and so on. Time for maintenance and a little remodeling, IMHO....
My pet peeve: it would appear that the hot water in the bathroom is on a timer. (Good luck getting any warm water with which to wash your face after midnight!) What a cheap way to treat your guests!!
The arcade area is crummy but might keep your ten-year-old happy for a while. The pools (swimming, indoors, outdoors, hit and cold) are diverting.
The buffet is good, but the restaurant staff is (to be tactful) "uneven".
