Nice room bad bed

Posted 17-Apr-2014
Pros: Great location, close to the entrance to the park and well laid out.
Cons: Like I said they have to improve on the beds, I'm sure I am not the only one to feel this way.
Location: Locations great, lots of things to do in the park.
Great place to stay, the rooms are very generous and roomy. My only problem is that the bed was so firm and the pillow was about the size of a throw pillow. Improve these and you have a great hotel.

Wholly recommend Yosemite View Lodge.

Posted 16-Apr-2014
Pros: Well equipped kitchenettes. Great views. Great location.
Cons: Better mattresses.
Great location near Yosemite. You can be into the park in just a few minutes. And you cannot be the view. We enjoyed soaking in the outdoor hot tub while listening to the Merced river flowing right behind us. As well as dinners on our balcony watching the sunset change the view on the canyon walls. Only negative was that the mattresses weren't great- but everything else was perfect.

Great location

Posted 16-Apr-2014
Very close to the western entrance of Yosemite. Big rooms at a decent value for the location. Decent food in the restaurant. Excellent pizza! Beds and pillows were not very comfortable

Reasonable hotel

Posted 11-Apr-2014
Reasonable location, Reasonable price, Reasonable facility, and so on. If you can reserve "Lodge at the Fall", it would be the best choice. But if you missed it, "View Lodge" is one of the greatest second option for you.

Good alternative to stay close to Yosemite Valley

Posted 08-Apr-2014
But, the hotel condition is not close to the value of the price you pay.

Spring time visit

Posted 04-Apr-2014
The room was okay for the price. The facilities are getting a bit long in the tooth. Also, restaurants and bars on site close early during the spring months. Decent place to stay because it's cheaper than staying in the valley but the drive isn't too far.

Will come here again!

Posted 31-Mar-2014
Pros: location, cleanliness, friendly staff
Location: Great location, 20 mins drive from West gate, Lovely view of Merced river and good restaurants and pizza place around. Also they have a gift shop etc.
We had a great time staying at Yosemite view lodge. Had beautiful room, lovely view and sound of Merced river flowing just outside. Great restaurant and Pizza place just downstairs. 20 some minutes from West gate i..e Valleys, Awahanee, Curry village etc.

Yosemite get away

Posted 24-Mar-2014
Pros: It was right on the river and very close to Yosemite., Indoor pool, kitchen Great to have the option to fix something quick for breakfast or dinner
Cons: I would recommend replacing microwave, toaster, add wine opener.
Location: Hiking, walking, site seeing at Yosemite, visiting the falls. It was breath taking!
The trip was fantastic, even with the visit from a raccoon in the middle of the night.

Awesome view of the river behind the Hotel.

Posted 24-Mar-2014
The hotel was a little dated but very nice and clean. The view on the back patio of the river was awesome. It was very relaxing to sit out there and listen to the water rushing by. The resturant had excellent food and the pizza was fantastic. Other than it being a little dated, I do not have any complaints.
