Yosemite Lodge at The Falls was a wonderful place to stay in Yosemite Valley. The only thing missing was air conditioning in the rooms but a fan was provided. However a air conditioner would have provided much needed relief from the heat. Temps during the day were 102.

While it can be difficult to get a reservation, the Yosemite Lodge is a must for any trip to Yosemite National Park. Located on the Valley floor, the Lodge offers excellent access to see the park. Buses run every 20 minutes from outside the main building and take you on a loop of the valley floor. Rooms are simple but what you need. We have twice stayed at Yosemite Lodge. The bunk bed room adequately accommodated our family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids, ages 18 mo, 4 and 6). The room had a nice balcony (ours looked towards the parking lot but the back side of the building had spectacular views), a small mini-fridge, a small table, and a nice clean bathroom. The room was small and did not offer a lot of storage but we spent very little time in the room. We have also stayed in a family room. It was VERY spacious, had a full-size table, pull-out couch, king bed, and two twin beds. Definitely reserve a family room if available. The hotel has a nice on-site cafeteria style restaurant, a fancier restaurant and bar, and a small store. Nightly presentations by the rangers (a program called Wee Wild Ones) were a hit with our kids. The staff was friendly and accommodating and the rooms were clean.

The lodge may not be up to standard in a few aspects (and none of them a deal breaker). However it is the perfect place to stay and explore the park, because of it's location. If you plan to stay outside all day and come to the hotel for a place to eat and sleep then it cannot be beaten, no matter what high quality amenities other places offer....

An breathtaking experience to share with the whole family. Take as much time as possible, things are a distance apart, but so worth it. I am from the east coast, and it was such a contrast to our ocean and mountains. It was incredible.

Fantastic proximity to the Falls, great customer service and recent upgrades to the rooms made for an enjoyable visit. We rented bicycles right at the Lodge which was great for taking our little ones out.

Worth every penny! I would definitely suggest this lodge to everyone. Kid friendly yet elegant and charming! The staff is so kind and helpful and the optional tours are well worth the additional cost.
