Cedar lodge We stayed 2 nights. The room was decent and reasonably clean. On the second night after visiting Yosemite, we arrived back at the lodge after dark with our 2 young kids (5&8 years). It was very dark outside our room and difficult to see the front door and lock. After fumbling about in the dark, I simply could...

For the three nights my wife and I stayed, we appreciated the large room with two queen beds, although used only one for sleeping, the other for our bags. There was a small table that was useful. The room, number 446, was at the very back of the large property, and thus was quiet, and was close to several pleasant...

Based on other reviews, I was prepared to be unimpressed with this place. But I found Cedar Lodge to be an excellent value, in terms of accommodations, amenities and distance to Yosemite. We choose a Junior Suite. It had one bedroom with two extremely comfortable queen beds, plus a separate living room with a Murphy bed. The kitchen is situated...

Room comfortable and spacious. Very close to the park entrance. The cons are mainly the price of the room for the quality you receive, and specially the high price and poor quality of the breakfast. We only spent one night and did not enjoy the indoor swimming pool.

My wife and I stayed two nights in Cedar Lodge during our visit to Yosemite National Park. The location was convenient, our room was quiet and comfortable and both outdoor and indoor pools were available, though we did not use them.

We stayed here as part of an Astronomical Bus Tour to Yosemite National Park. We stayed over night here as part of the tour. There are wooden bears all around the hotel which would be cute, but most of them have had their noses ripped off. The 60's style diner was obviously just a diner built in the 60s that...

The Cedar lodge is close to the Yosemite national park. The people of the lodge are very friendly. The room of the lodge was large enough, however the bathroom should be renovated. The toilet as well as the shower worked very poor.

We stayed in the master suite "The Cabin" It was plenty large for two families of four, a little dated but having the kitchen and extra room was awesome! We cooked most of our meals. (In case you didn't know eating in Yosemite can be expensive.) We took full advantage of our personal hot tub but were unable to use...

Only 20 minutes to the park, but much less for huge family friendly rooms. Junior suite under $200 a night sleeps 8 easily. 2 double beds in separate bedroom, Murphy double bed in living area plus fold out couch. Full kitchen with cooktop and microwave pots pans utensils plates glasses. Older place but very clean. Bring your own food no...

“Go for the Junior Suite, even if you only have 2 people. Having a kitchen and separate rooms give you a lot of space and meal options.”
