Overall, the hotel is quite nice. Location and environment can't be beat. We had a problem with a soiled bed cover that needed replacing. Once reported, it was immediately replaced. Some of the rooms are beginning to look a little shabby. Restaurants were excellent for our purposes. We stayed in a cottage. Very quiet and private. Outdoor pool was closed […] for the Winter. Hotel location is just outside the south gate of Yosemite. I wouldn't recommend upstairs cottages to families with toddlers - open staircase could be dangerous.

We spent three nights at the lodge, and drove into Yosemite Valley each day. The lodge was outstanding. Very comfortable, although a little noisy in the rooms from people in the hallways. We ate once each at the Pizza Parlor, Jackalopes, and Embers. Never had less than a great meal. The plates were well thought out, presentation was excellent, and the […] food was way above average. The night we ate at Embers was one of the best meals we've ever had. At least as good as anything we've had at the Awahnee hotel, and saved an hour drive each way. One surprise was the 8PM flashlight nature hike. Very much worth the $15. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place to relax."
The weather was beautiful. It was wonderful to look out the window and see the trees. It was a very relaxing stay. I had the apple burger in the grill and it tasted great.Genuine Expedia guest review
We arrived after dark to a sofly glowing entrance. The staff members were welcoming as was the well-appointed room. A very good breakfast was served in a quiet dinner room overlooking the forest. Our food took a bit too long to arrive and the waitress informed the host who apologized and then quite suprisingly stated that our meal was gratis. We then […] drove 2.5 miles to the park entrance and, of course, had a remarkable touring day as was the day following. This was the perfect hotel for us - absolutely beautiful with an extremely pleasant and accommodating staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"No "Roughing It" at Tenaya Lodge"
Comfortable, even though we had to stay in a room with two double beds (no single queens available, which we would have preferred). Restaurant facilities nice and food good but expensive. Unfortunately, there's not much else available in Fish Camp. Many amenities available to guests. Responsive and friendly staff. Picturesque 1 hour's drive to Yose […] mite.

"Extremely disappointed in Fish Camp!"
The room itself was adequate, however, the bathroom left much to be desired. The shower faucet was broken and the temperature fluctuated dramatically while in use from cold to extremely hot without touching it. The outdoor pool was not in use so our kids used the indoor pool which was ice cold. We were also extremely disappointed with the quality of […] service and food at the restaurants in the hotel. Very little to choose from and the prices were outlandish for what was ordered. $8 for a cup of chicken soup! My own children, 5 and 8, commented on how awful their spaghetti and meatballs tasted from the "family style" restaurant. It all tasted like cafeteria food. Beautiful views, but my family will never go there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Family Resort Just A Few Miles from Yosemite"
We truly enjoyed staying at Tenaya Lodge. The lodge caters to families by offering a wide variety of activities and amenities including: ice skating, mountain bike rentals, rock wall climbing, nature hikes, indoor swimming pool, (outdoor pools are open during the summer months), an arcade and a kids' club. We were there over spring break and the resort […] held an egg hunt complete with Easter Bunny. The concierge is always happy to help with any additional travel plans or suggestions. There is also a gift shop and a spa. One other nice amenity for families is the onsite laundromat. Tenaya Lodge has three different restaurants offering a variety of options, plus fire pits for s'more making, "Family Night" buffets, a pizza parlor and gourmet coffee stand (featuring boxed lunches to go).The service in the restaurants was great and the food was delicious. Across the board, we found the staff to be friendly, helpful and welcoming. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for families!"
Great for families- lots of great help from the concierge too! Long hours for the indoor pool- a big plus! Kids galore!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nightmare at Tenaya!"
I checked in at the Tenaya for nights, but didn't even complete a full night stay. The reason being I woke up at 11:30 p.m. needing to use the bathroom. This was my first use only to discover that the water in the bowel was near overflow level. I immediately contacted the night clerk and his absurd suggestion was to bail out water - if you bail out […] water any toilet will quickly refill automatically. I was in such a need that I decided to give bailing (see sentence above). The end results, an upset stomach,sleeplessness and early departure toward home at 3:30 a.m. as I would be too tired to enjoy Yosemite National Park. However, my room issues didn't start there. Upon arrival I took a shower only to discover the plumbing in the shower was very sensitive. If I barely turned the hot and cold water one direction or the other it resulted in drastic temperature swings from scalding hot to cold. Lastly intended to eat at Embers as I wanted a fine dining experience without leaving the lodge, but it was closed - the quality of the Steak and Shrimp at the bar and grill was such that my excellent meal was my only positive experience. Nevertheless, I was made to wait for the server longer than reasonable and the appetizer I ordered arrived at the same time as the main course. Instead of the 5 star experiences I read about... I have had better overall experiences in low budget motels. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Stayed in a cottage and it was perfect.lots of room, nice furnishings. The lodge restaurant was good and nicely presented.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a nice, comfortable and clean room. I would recommend it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect getaway for families and dog"
This was the perfect choice for our family and small dog. The room had a door that backed up to a grassy area and there were plenty of common areas that we could relax with our dog. We also enjoyed the pool and the ice skating rink with our daughter.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great accommodations but expected more for thcost"
The lodge and resort were fine with clean accommodations. Staff was very courteous. They appear to have activities for kids that we would have enjoyed but they only operated within two hour windows and were fully booked even before our mid afternoon check-in. The resort has three restaurants that I presume share the same kitchen and staff. The menus […] looked a lot alike. For the cost however, if I should have occasion to travel to Yosimite again I will likely book earlier and stay at Alawanee Hotel in the park. That decision is really based on value for the price and not because the Tenaya should be regarded as deficient. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Disappointed with a few of the accommodations, but overall an okay visit.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, not great."
A nice facility, not great. Shower head didn't work well. Floor in second floor room creaked as you walked across the room shaking the furniture. Toilet seat was awfully low. Restaurant was nice, not great. Staff worked hard to make you comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"lots of family activities"
Tanaya Lodge is one of the most beautifully stunning places that I have ever stayed at. The staff is excellent, and the concierge is the most helpful that I have ever seen, able to help with the many family activities at the lodge, or with trips to Yosemite. The ice skating rink at the lodge was a blast. There are so many lodge sponsored activities, […] my only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Had a great experience."
Wonderful hotel. It is about 2 miles outside the park entrance which is convenient, although it does take 1 hour and 5 minutes to drive to Tunnel View near the main part of the park.Genuine Expedia guest review
What a beautiful lodge. We stayed in the cottages which were quint and cozy. Don't expect a big room and bathroom, they are small and comfortable cabins. The living room area was nice with a fireplace. Cottages had there own indoor heated pool and spa. This place is about as close to Yosemite as you can get without being in the park. Only 2 miles from […] the south entrance. Disregard the bad reviews about having to drive a ways to get into the Yosemite Valley, no other place is any closer. It is a beautiful 30 mile drive through the park. Restaurants at the logde were wonderful and the food was fantastic! You can go for a casual dinner or more fancy depending on wat you want to spend. Highly reccomend this place, you will not be disappointed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"very good hotel"
the hotel was outstanding: the room, the staff, the restaurant. The location was good as well, but it usually takes about 45 minutes to reach the yosemite valley. Anyway, perfect experienceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Tenaya Lodge provided a great stopping point for us during our visit to Yosemite. It was a refreshing change of pace from the other run of the mill hotels we had stayed at previously. The restaurants were nice (breakfast buffet was a highlight), and the room was comfortable. Had I realized there was a pool and hot-tub, I would have brought the appropriate […] attire - it would have been great to soak after a couple of days of intense hiking through the park. Overall, teriffic hotel and I would definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel to get away"
The staff of the hotel always responded politely and found a way to say yes when we needed some assistance. Food is excellent, as the wait staff, and even the front door staff outside made us feel welcome.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Certainly a family environment"
My husband and I went as a couple for his 30th birthday... everything was fabulous: the restaurants were fabulous, the facilities, the pool/hot tub, the location, the room service, EVERYTHING! We especially loved the espresso/coffee bar in the deli before we headed out to the mountain to ski. The only downside we found, which we probably would have […] known had we done more research, were the massive amounts of kids. Granted, there are kids all throughout the park, so we shouldn't have been surprised, but it was definitely a family atmosphere. Still, we would definitely stay there again and will recommend it to friends! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel stay experience"
The hotel is beautiful and classy. The staff is extremely nice and courteous. The location is very near Yosemite gate so that is convenient. Their is only one major problem is the hot water system in every room. We had to change to three different rooms to find one with hot water working. And still, it takes a while for the water to become hot. Ironically […] in every room they have sign saying "Water is vital. Please reserve water." But in our case, we have to let the water run for a good several minutes before it is warming up. So much for conserving water! Other than that, everything else is great! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Tired at the Tenaya"
The location, and facility probably worth the price; however the bed proved to be very stiff/hard and the pillows very soft. Made for a rather sleepless night which did not support a great trip to Yosemite the next day! The staff also seemed a little pushy at the bar and restaurant in terms of trying to get you to purchase more-more drinks, more food […] items, etc. This is my third visit and possibly my last which is too bad. Just not the way I remembered it and the cost given a night of uncomfortable sleep did this experience in. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good destination hotel"
Concierge staff was very helpful; when we arrived, our room wasn't ready and we waited for about 45 minutes before asking that they switch us to another room. We were on the 2nd floor and heard some noise from the top (3rd floor). Restaurant service was excellent the first day and not as good the 2nd day when the hotel was more crowded. Indoor pool […] was very nice and the outdoor ice rink was well maintained and staffed. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"There is nothing much better around... so be it."
Staff's very kind and helpful Hotel conditions, beside old, very worn out. Restaurant has a very poor menu and the chef "cook" perhaps was his day(s) off when we were there, since the food was really low notch...Genuine Expedia guest review
The front line staff were very polite and efficient. However, the customer service from the desk and deli was poor for the first 1-2 days but got better.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for kids."
Stayed here with our three kids over Martin Luther King weekend. This is a great place to take kids. There is the indoor pool, sledding, ice skating, horse sled rides and more. We will definitely come back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect start to my Cali vacation"
I did not have a single bad interaction with any staff member: front desk, room service, waiters/waitresses and host/hostesses. Service was impeccable. Everyone was incredibly friendly with a lot of advice to offer about what to see, how to get there, and anything else you could possibly ask. The rooms and every other part of the hotel are clean. If […] youre travelling with children, there is a small arcade, indoor and outdoor pool, as well as an ice skating rink in the winter months. The only negative would be the location, about an hour drive (due to the road conditions in winter) to the main park attractions. Im sure it would have been a shorter drive had i visited in any other season. Overall the place is a 5/5 on all aspects. And i almost forgot to mention that the food was AMAZING.

"Family winter vacation at Yosemite"
Room is not properly insulated. Shower hot water not working properly. We arrived before 3 pm but the room was not ready until 4:15. Breakfast buffet was expensive but nice; kids liked it a lot. Dinner at Sierra restaurant was also pricy but the food was ok. Location is very convenient. Staff was helpful with snow chains.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything was excellent. We were disappointed to pay a surcharge for wi-fi considering the price of the cottage room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel bell boy and parking attendants were excellent. However, restaurant service were NOT favorable. Food was good, but poor services and price we had to pay were not good enough to stay to dining in hotel. We rather drive 15 miles to eat else where.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had to wait quite awhile for the room and since it was not ready first time thru check in line, had to wait a 2nd time with one person at desk so another 20 minute line. However, property is nice and convenient to Yosemite entrance. Ordered room service but many items on menu are not available, and not updated on the room menu. They didn't offer […] much help there so one of us skipped dinner entirely. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"perfect cozy getaway"
The hotel and grounds are gorgeous and perfect for a yosemite getaway. They had plenty of activities onsite in case you want to stay in rather than go to the park. The food at the Jackalope Grill and Bar was AMAZING and the service was great. I thought the spa was a bit pricy so I didn't get a chance to enjoy that. The lodge was easy to find, however […] the road to and from was VERY windy so I got a bit carsick. Other than that it was a great weekend getaway and i would definitely stay again! This time of year is great....no crowds at all. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Weekend in Yosemite"
An hour’s drive from Yosemite Valley. Need snow cables one night. Food in hotel was reasonably priced, had to wait to be seated. Enjoyed the pool. Fairly long and convoluted walk from room to lobby and restaurants. Reasonably priced, would return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
There were 7 families in our group and we got the requested proximity to each other's rooms - that made our socializing so much more fun! The only negative was our "birthday celebration dinner" on Sunday - there were 24 of us (just like there was on Saturday night) - it took 2 HOURS for them to get our food served and we had a reservation - by the time […] food appeared 3 of our 8 kids in the group were asleep!!! It was a total "buzz kill" for all of us! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Staff was amazingly nice. Service in bar was generally quite good, but the sit-down restaurant had a very slow kitchen and confused staff. Not too many other food choices in the area. Wonderful place; very romantic.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Drive the Distance, save the Money"
When I made the reservation, I told them that I would be bringing a dog as well. I called the day before to make sure that the dog was accounted for during my stay and found out the room I had planned to stay in was not for dogs and they would have to change my room. Reservations change the room to a dog friendly room and I was glad that I called to […] check. When I got to the hotel, I went in to register everything was going fine until I looked at the reservation form. It did not say anything about a dog. Again I had to tell them that I had a dog and again they changed my room to a dog friendly room. The room itself was nice and comfortable. However, when it came time to shower, there was little water pressure and the water was not very hot. Breakfast did not fair much better. We order off the menu instead of the buffet. The service was slow and the server did not bring my toast with my meal. At the mid-point of the meal I asked him to check on my toast. About 10 minutes later he came back and he had forgotten all about the toast. Over all the place was way over price for the level service we received. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We stayed overnight after visiting Yosemite. Very nice hotel hidden in the mountains. Rooms were nice and we had a great nachos and burger at the bar and grill. Would be good if they included wifi for free and also breakfast. Apart from that a nice place that reminded me of staging at a ski resort hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel-maid service wasn't good"
The hotel was beautiful. Had great service at check in and in the restaurant and bar. We were really disappointed that the maid never came to straighten our room or give us clean towels. We left early in the morning and came back at 2pm to find our room still not straightened. Left again at 3:30 pm only to come back at 10 pm that night to find our room […] still not cleaned. By that time it was late and we just wanted to sleep after along day. We left the next morning to go back home. To say the least there maid service has something to bbe desired. I wasn't happy at all. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I had a great stay at Tenaya Lodge. We traveled daily to Yosemite park, so it was a little bit of a drive getting to the valley, but the scenery was beautiful. I had several people comment that the hotels inside the park were not what they expected, so I am glad we chose Tenaya Lodge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
