The accomadations were perfect. Pools, hot tubs, river view, resturant on site and little store with everything you could need as well as gifts. Yosemite was 2 miles away!
especially loved the view, remodled & very clean. We would visit this place again.
price could be a little more accomidating to the economy crisis.
Perfect location for acccess to Yosemite National Park. The dinner salad bar and breakfast buffet were excellent.
I arrived at night. There were no directions to the lodge office. My mattress was not firm.
Location and scene
Need for new or acceptable clean bed sheets and towels
Fantastic location. The room was noticeably clean. Loved the river behind it.
Come on-- the facility can have wi-fi for the entire facility, not just the front desk. For goodness sakes, it's 2012. Apple is the richest company one earth. That means everyone has apple products and apple products require web connection. i figure in good months, the lodge grosses nearly 4 million dollars. Come Mr. Republican owner, throw a bone with free wi-fi-- and for the entire faciltiy!!!! Also, there's no night life, dig deeper for more channels on the television!!!!!!
Every thing we needed was on sit, great staff, great room with a view.
location , natural view ,
towels not replaced regularly. calling hotel restaurant from hotel room not free (through receiption).
|Location is excellent!!! nice kitchenette and View was great!!
pretty clean- the sheets had a bit of a weird smell.. the garbage outside the door room was full..
riverside view & location.
no lunch service at restaurant. dog hairs everywhere at patio area.
Great location, ideal for access to the park.
The wifi wasn't free at all, $9 for your room and it didn't even work with no refunds. No flexibility for check in, 3pm is late seeing as check out is 11am!
The roar of the river and view of it from our balcony! It was the best part for me. Slept the best there over the other 12 places we stayed on our vacation. Liked the kitchenette, too! It was a wonderful place, just wish it did not feel so much like a time-share or large crowd place, but it was fine.
The location, close to Yosemite, was great. The patio overlooking the Merced River was a nice place to enjoy our morning coffee.
This is probably a better place for a family to stay. The complex was huge, with several pools, etc.; we prefer something more personal. The price was more than what we used the facilities for. We would not stay there again, but in the right circumstances and people, it would likely be a good deal.
Relaxing in a slice of Heaven!
The late check-in is not practical with many people traveling from far away. Early check-out makes matter worse, regarding the late check-in. Food for thought!
We loved our room's location (River Side). The temperature and comfort of sleeping with the Sliding Door open and hearing the River, all added to our Yosemite Experience. We appreciated being right outside the Park for easy access, yet the added privacy of being away from the activity of the visitors and Campers during dinner & at night. We also enjoyed the selection and setting for our dinner & breakfast at the on site restaurant. The staff was very friendly and were very efficient in servicing us (water, removing plates, dinner & drinks), without being intrusive. Lastly, we enjoyed the convenience of having the on site store for snacks, wine & ammenities.
Wished we could have gotten a newspaper by check out time for the ride home the next day. Didn't think that there would be no cell phone service. Didn't mind missing it, but just wanted to note it so others are aware & can plan for it accordingly.
Had a equipped kitchen and large double spa bath
The ceiling fan didnt do anything but make noise and the spa bath controls didnt work
