    Good value for money
    Great value for money. The Lodge is very close to Yosemite valley. When I asked for a map of the area / park - I was given a very very minimal black&white map printed on a simple A4 page. I actually needed a decent map since there was no signal for at&t at the place and the visitor center of the park was closed due to the government shutdown (Jan 2019). I wasn't offered to buy one.

    Nice and cozy
    Perfect place to be super close to Yosemite gate, only 10 minutes from entrance!! We loved swimming at the indoor pool! Cute little train and bear statues too

    Wi-Fi has to be included.
    No Wi-Fi. It’s a mountain location, no cellphone has area on that place, and they charge for Wi-Fi. It should be included.
