"Comfortable and in the woods"
We did love this place once we got to it. The lodge is remotely located down a paved road. Unfortunately, fires from last year have scarred the landscape and made the scenery in some places littered with burned out trees being removed. But the conditions at the lodge are beautiful and full of life. We had deer right outside our balcony. The room is […] nice with a comfortable bed. There is no AC, no phone, no cell service and no TV in the rooms. You are in the woods people, get over it. AC was not needed and we were there in the hottest part of the summer. There is one TV at the site, in the Tavern, but that was all we saw. Internet is only available in the recreation area, but not reliable and slow. To me it was a blessing because I am one of those who is constantly looking at my phone and there was no need for this up in Yosemite. The lodge has many activities and tours. The pool is fantastic to jump in after a day of discovering. There is also a large hot tub and more importantly a pool bar. The service throughout was great. Not sure if or when we will go back to Yosemite, but we will definitely recommend the Evergreen Lodge. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing Location to stay!"
Apart from being so close to the Yosemite national park, the stay at the hotel itself is an experience. The wooden cabins are very spacious. They have plenty activities for kids and for adults. The tavern is super fun and has some activity going on throughout the year!.. super fun...Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best part of our 9 day California trip was here!"
Since we were only staying one night in Yosemite, we thought it would be okay to spend a little more for our hotel/lodge. However, Evergreen Lodge surpassed all of our expectations and then some. It was a very special place to stay. We could have never stepped one foot in Yosemite and this still would have been the best part of our 9 day Northern California […] trip. The pool was so resort-like and pristine, they had a ton of events such as campfire smores, nature trails, live entertainment, zip lining, and a delicious restaurant. The one room cabin was charming, cozy, and clean. Their staff felt like family as well. We have decided that we will have to come back to California in a few years and spend an entire week at this resort. Our kids kept talking about the Evergreen Lodge and asking when they could return. Wonderful for the kids AND the adults!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"great location, great hotel"
We very much enjoyed our stay at Evergreen. Comfortable, beautiful, clean room, peaceful place, beautiful pool and hot tub, fun, great food, great staff and service. Thank for providing a wonderful place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay while visiting Yosemite!"
Best option for us - 2 adults, 3 teens and a 9 year old. We thought it was better than awahanee if you want a less"hotel" feel, more rustic. A bit off the beaten track but certainly not distance prohibitive. The food is fantastic and the facilities are well above average. Very homey feel and great staff - everyone remembers your name. Ask for a cabin […] away from the pool and rec areas. Be warned... no AC in cabins but it was not a problem for us even in July. Guides/tours available... not cheap but we enjoyed our High Country guided tour very much and we learned so much more than is in the books. Do yourself a favor and take at least 4 days in Yosemite and at Evergreen - wow! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Room was comfortable and staff very pleasant. Noah in the restaurant was especially attentive. Clean and well maintained property. Wish internet was better. Tough to get connected in the evening.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice cabins excellent location!"
The cabins were very nice and clean. The location was perfect! Only problem was that the cabins didn't have a kitchen and the restaurant was over priced for the quality of the food!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"A wonderful getaway! Rustic but inviting!"
The Evergreen Lodge is very romantic. It would be a great place to bring kids as well. That is saying a lot because the two rarely go together. The cabins were very quaint and in very good condition. Everything was as clean as you can want. Most cabins are in pairs--two cabins to one building. Bring a flashlight for each guest. At night the lighting […] is adequate, but you will want a flashlight. The staff were very friendly and engaging. Really fine people! There is a nice pool and jacuzzi, billiards, and ping pong and bocce ball. The restaurant is really great although a bit pricey. Still, it is worth it. There is a lovely general store which is reasonably priced considering they are the only game in town. They can make you espresso drinks and soft served frozen yogurt. They have sandwiches and other foods to bring with you into Yosemite Valley. They have a lot of activities for adults and children. There are guided tours of the grounds and planned activities in Yosemite Valley that you can join them for. The 2013 Yosemite Wildfire burned around the lodge and even scorched a few trees on the premises. Credit the heroic firefighters for saving the lodge! Still, this is a beautiful place in an amazing setting. One mile west of the entrance/exit to Yosemite National Park along the CA Hwy 120 and 108, you take Evergreen Rd north for 5.6 miles to the lodge. Watch out for cows on the road. We loved this lodge and can't wait to return for a longer stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and pleasant, but isolated and rundown"
We (myself, spouse and my parents) stayed in a cabin with a king size bed and sofa bed for two nights in the summer. Free WiFi and internet were advertised, but when we got there we were told that the coverage was only available in the lobby areas and was rather "spotty". A more honest assessment would be "non-existent". We tried several times in the […] lobby to access the internet, but failed each time to make a connection. Cell phone coverage was also unavailable. The room was clean and spacious and equipped with a fan, but had no air-conditioning, making the hot summer nights a bit uncomfortable. The shower knob in our room was broken, and since there was no intercom system or phone connection to the front desk, we walked to the front desk to inform them of any problems. We had to do this three separate times during the day before the management finally sent a maintenance man to our room. The man tried to fix the shower knob, even claiming to replace the knob. But when we tried to use the shower the next morning, we encountered the same problem with the shower knob. Since the room was rather expensive, we expected to get a functioning shower, or at least have the problem fixed in a timely manner once we informed the front desk. This combined with the non-existent internet and cell phone coverage, made for a rather disappointing experience. I would not recommend this lodge to a friend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"not many options on that side on Yosemite"
I was told when i booked the room that the cabin was recently renovated, however the bathroom was terrible. It was in terrible condition, sub par with an very small sink that was heavily caulked to wall, a toilet for little people, and a shower with a shower head that is prefect if you are 5 ft tall. The shower stall was stained and the floor was black. […] I expected much more judging from the photos on the website and the recent renovation which I guess did not include the bathroom. For over $ 250/night, it is the only game around, so they can do whatever they want. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good if you are sta.ying at Yosemite"
Restaurant was great. Servers were friendly, and food was excellent. Once you get past the room not having a/c its a great place to stay. Proximity to Yosemite was perfect. Only a short drive to Hetch Hetchy Reservoir(where we saw a bear 10 mins into our hike).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A place to be out of electronic world."
It was great. We enjoyed the bonfire and sunset viewing. Wished it was a bit closer to Yosemite Village park and town limit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My family really enjoyed this lodge. Food was excellent and facilities were great.Genuine Expedia guest review
We just returned from a stay at Evergreen lodge over the long weekend. The lodge cabin was great and well equipped. The pool and hot tub were well kept. The pool area gets a little overrun by kids so dont expect to get laps in on a busy weekend. There were lots of actitivties for kids. Smores every evening! Activity center and more. The staff was fun […] and friendly. The onsite restaurant was very good. We will be back again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great facilities, location and staff"
We had a really nice time at Evergreen lodge. Since the moment we arrived staff were very friendly and helpful. The food is very good and the common areas are nice. Our cabin was nice and very clean. The kids enjoyed being able to walk around and "explore" by themselves. It's close enough to Yosemite and there are plenty of activities and tours to choose […] from. We didn't want to leave and are now planning our next trip to the same place. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic! Highly recommend if visiting Yosemite"
We spent a couple of nights at Evergreen Lodge. It was too short a stay. It is just outside the entrance to Yosemite National park and feels miles and miles away from the hustle and bustle of the lodging inside the park. This is THE place to stay, unless you like to be surrounded by a multitude of people, The staff was accomodating, very helpful and […] extremely nice even when they were refusing us a late check out. They offered us to remain on the property as long as we wished for the day, using their facilities and would provide us towels to shower prior to leaving. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Upscale Camplike Setting."
Great hotel in a camp setting. Dining was pricey but delicious. Beautiful grounds and pool area. Fun activities for grand children. Relatively close to the park.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very happy with Evergreen! We will return!"
I had stopped at the Evergreen Lodge for lunch a few years back and logged it in my memory bank as a place to return to on a vacation. It did not disappoint. Close to Hetch Hetchy and Yosemite it was ideal location. The staff was over the top helpful, and our cabin was adorable. Clean, comfortable and quiet. The lodge food was amazing- one night we […] had burgers at the bar watching baseball, the next night filet mignon on the outdoor patio. Lots of activities that appealed to ALL ages. The grounds were like walking around a movie set of an old 1950's style lodge. Very well maintained and so charming. We loved this place and even though the price tag was a tiny bit rough - it was worth every penny. We will recommend to friends and we will return! There is only one comment we would make- you should know ahead of time no cell phone service and their internet is spotty and only in the lodge. I loved that- my friend didn't love that. You really are given an opportunity to unplug and enjoy the woods, good food/wine and each other. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Isolated summer camp paradise"
The cabin was very nice and the location was isolated in the woods. Lots of nice touches such as board games in the room, rec room with activities, games and hammocks spread around the area, lighted pathways, beautiful pool with full bar and a quality resturant with great service and very comfortable mattress. Only downsides for me, charging to play […] the rec room games... Quarters for fooseball, pool, and ping pong balls when I am paying the rates of this place plus meals... Really? Table shuffleboard was missing the "sand" that is supposed to be there, probably because of the mess. All the games should be no charge in the rec room. Room was also insufficiently stocked for my family. Two towels for a family of four, with no way to call the desk to ask for more? They knew how many we're coming... But in all honesty, I would come back here in a heartbeat. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Convenient access to Hetch Hetchy and Yosemite"
The food in the restaurant was excellent! The elk chili was the best chili I've ever had. Would feel better about the whole experience had the room not been backed up to the play area. They have this zip line that the kids love. Problem is they ride the thing all day, even past sundown. Forget about a late afternoon nap or reading in your room over […] the nonstop clanging of the zip line. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Problem with cancellation policy, otherwise nice"
The lodge charged me an extra night after changing my booking even though I was still within the limit specified cancellation policy (they claimed to have a special cancellation policy which is only on their website). Luckily hotels.com helped me to straighten this out. Otherwise the lodge is very nice and very conveniently located. The cabins are comfortable […] and clean. Unfortunately, the surrounding area was burnt in a fire last year. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Closest place from Yosemite entrance"
Very cozy and peaceful place. closest lodge from Yosemite entrance except lodges inside. However, there's no cell phone signal so that you cannot use your mobile at all in this place. Plus, if you arrive late night, you should be careful because there's no outdoor lighting. Other than this, I really enjoyed staying there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A wonderful setting in the wilderness"
The cabins were comfortable and the staff was great. We took a great tour of the major sights and the guide was knowledgeable but he talked constantly the entire day! The restaurant was amazingly good -- like a restaurant you would find in a major city.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The perfect Yosemite experience"
If you are looking for the real Yosemite experience, you have to book at the Evergreen Lodge. A personal bungalow in direct contact with nature. The personnel is careful and helpful, the rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel has a heated pool and jacuzzi in open air, where you can loose yourself in the sunset. The only cons (if you can call it […] like this) is the absence of mobile signal and the internet connection works (when it does due to the satellite connection) in the main room only. But the unforgettable experience that this hotel grants worth these little lacks. The hotel organizes excursions (on one or more days), rafting and others plein air activities. It also offers a bicycle rent service. We will definitely book at Evergreen Lodge next time. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place in the woods."
I loved meeting so many people from many countries, and also seeing all these young couples with their little kids (it was early May). It was casual -- and when you went to your room it was quiet, warm and comfortable. the bathrooms are quite large. Liked sitting by the fireplace in the main building - small groups conversing, a couple finishing a jig […] saw puzzle someone else had started. Very enjoyable all around.

We had a wonderful visit at evergreen lodge. The setting is beautiful and the cabins are clean and well kept. Lots of activities for kids/families. The only negative was that it was a little hot at night while sleeping. Our kids ages 10 and 13 didn't want to leave! Everything is on sight which made it event te relaxing(dining, general store,pool,etc). […] We would definitely return. Think of it as high end camping! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Awesome Wilderness Paradise!"
I went here for an overnight stay after hiking Half Dome with my boyfriend. It was just the place to be after a strenuous hike. We had a late check in but I called ahead and there was an envelope waiting in a mailbox outside reception with directions to our beautiful Deluxe Cabin. Everything was clean and we had our own deck off the cabin. We slept […] well and the next day we had a delicious breakfast at the lodge restaurant with Peet's coffee. We soaked our sore limbs in the hot tub and pool. Everything was perfect and I can't wait to book a longer stay for our next trip to Yosemite. This place is perfect for couples, families or retreats. You can relax on the grounds after an active day of hiking or biking. I can see elderly people having a good time here too. Everything appears to be accessible even for wheelchair users. Love it!

"WE LOVED THE EVERGREEN LODGE"
We stayed at the Evergreen Lodge on our recent trip to Yosemite. We stayed We stayed in a cabin and were very pleased with the size, cleanliness and comfort.

Nice to get away from the very crowded Yosemite.They […] have a very nice pool and hot tub which is nice after a day of hiking. They have a recreation area with many fun things to do for kids.

"Roughing it without roughing it"
For a city boy who has never camped or anything, Evergreen Lodge was great. The accommodations were ample and clean. My girlfriend and I had a little cabin for two and it was "cute".

"Best Bet Near Yosemite"
Spectacular location; superb service; guided recreation with great kids; great facilities ... and, in a big surprise, a gourmet chef at the rustic tavern/restaurant. Only "gripe" (not really, this is an out of the way, off-the-grid sort of place with no telephones or TV but does have satellite radio) is intermittent internet by satellite; no cell service […] either (hooray). Lovely staff; quick to help. "Hotel" is scattered private or duplex cabins with decks ... way wonderful getaway. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Lodge is very nice. We had a half cabin with large bedroom with balcony, couch, fridge, Sirsus radio and large bath. Room was clean and very comfortable. The restaurant was surprisingly good, with more interesting food than one would expect for a hotel near a national park (e.g., roast duck with figs, pasta with mushrooms, home-cured lox, and local […] fresh fruit for breakfast). Even the hamburger was excellent. The staff in the rec center, who gave advice about hiking and viewing spots in Yosemite, in the restaurant and at reception, were all helpful. The downside is the length of the trip to Yosemite. I think the Evergreen Lodge is the closest hotel to the Yosemite valley that is not actually in the park. The Lodge is about a 15 minute drive to the route 120 Yosemite Park , with another 45 minute drive to parking in Yosemite valley. The trip to Hetch Hetchy is somewhat shorter.

"PERFECT FOR FAMILY VACATIONS"
This was our 2nd time staying at Evergreen Lodge when visiting Yosemite area and we absolutley love it. The staff is friendly and helpful and everything you need and want to do after a long day of hiking is right there. We love the firepit and s'mores, friendly games of bocce ball or shuffle board are always a great hit too. The new pool and sunset […] decks they have installed since our last visit are amazing - you can't ask for a better place to spend your day and/or evening hours! It has become our place to gather with our family on a yearly basis! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not what we expected"
For the price of the hotel, we expected better bedding, mattress, bathroom fixtures, and more convenient parking. We ordered a dinner plate from the restaurant, and the meat was well undercooked. The nightly family activities need to be better developed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall an excellent stay, breakfast was slow, if you are after an early start, maybe think of self catering for breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet and Secluded Comfort"
This place is in the middle of nowhere, but quite comfortable. It is not far from Yosemite Valley -- about a 40 minute drive, so it's convenient for visiting the Park, and is about as close as you can get to without staying in the Park itself. It has a public deck oriented toward the daily sunset, and when we were there, did see a spectacular one. The […] restaurant had great food, but it's essentially your only choice ... there is nothing else within 45 minutes. It's a great place if you want to get away from it all - there is also no cell reception no in room WiFi/Internet, and no in room television. They do provide free long distance telephone and very slow Satellite based WiFi in a public recreation room if you need to connect with someone. The cabins are very comfortable, and it is very quiet! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great stay at the Evergreen Lodge. The restaurant was excellent & fairly priced which was important as the distance from other options for dinner was very far. Only disadvantage was no Internet connection/wifi/cell or tv, but that was the case for most of the Yosemite area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great, only problem for me was the bed mattress - too soft.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Ambience, limited internet"
We stayed three nights at the Lodge and very much enjoyed the wooded location, property amenities and the chance to be away from the crowed Yosemite area for relaxing evenings. Our cabin was very nicely appointed with a private balcony looking into the woods. The general store on site had reasonable prices on snacks, wine and such so we were able to […] enjoy evenings on the deck over a glass of wine and music from the terrific Sirius satellite radio provided. Some may find the drive into Yosemite (about an hour) to be too much and there are no other convenient restaurant options except for the Lodge. Internet connection was pretty limited, so anyone hoping to work online while in residence may be disappointed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Yosemite's Hidden Gem"
Although the Evergreen Lodge is about 45 minutes from the Yosemite Valley, it is worth the drive! On the other hand, it is only about a 5 minute drive from the Hetch Hetchy entrance of the park. The Evergreen Lodge was wonderful!! The staff were nice and the cabin we had was fabulous--spacious and clean! There is a nature trail, the John Muir house, […] recreation area, pool and hot tub, gift shop/grocery store, and a full service restaurant. The restaurant provides wonderful food and service but can be a bit pricey. The main entrees ranged from $25 to about $32. If you want a side salad, it is an additional $7. Burgers and sandwiches range from $15-20. There are sandwiches for about $7 in the grocery store, along with gelato, snacks, cereal, milk, and drinks, etc, etc.. Activities are available in the afternoon and evening, and they offer s'more making every evening. There are plenty of games, books, and other activities available in lieu of a t.v. in your room (not to mention movies in the rec hall and a night of bingo--with prizes). They do have some computers in the recreational area that have internet via satellite. Satellite goes in and out and internet is somewhat slow, but still available. Rooms have Sirius radio available at no charge. I would definitely stay here again. It was relaxing and fun and well worth the money! Great for couples or families! Lots to do for everyone! It's like being at a resort but at a much more affordable price. 5 star---hands down! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
