Clean rooms, comfortable beds and friendly staff but restuarant was closed. Lucky we called ahead (after reading reviews) and brought in our own food. No silverware, plates or bowls were available in the rooms so we had to ask for them. Great location very close to Yosemite entrance, makes it easy to get to the park early. This could be...

You don't expect luxury in a wood cabin but it had all we needed - a huge bed, coffee & tea making facilities, tv, separate shower/wc and above all it was very warm whilst temperatures outdoors were sub zero. Breakfast (not included) was chunky and cheerful. The big attraction is its close vicinity to Yosemite National Park (South Entrance) Access...

The location is great, very close to the park. The room was clean, there was a fridge and microwave. There wasn't a closet. The bathroom was small but clean, if you shower in the morning low pressure. Wifi worked well. When I booked the room the breakfast was included, but when I got there the lady said that it wasn't...

We had a great stay at White Chief Mountain. The staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating. The room is big and comfy. The bathroom was ok - it might need a little work. But it was certainly clean. The location is perfect, close to the Park entrance, and beautiful surroundings. Definitely recommend it!

My friend and I stayed at the White Chief Mountain Lodge for 3 nights in August and were pleasantly surprised! (The photos on booking.com leave a lot to be desired!) We found that the rooms, although dated, were spotlessly clean, a good size and very comfortable. Each room had its own parking space which was very handy indeed. The lady...

The location is beautiful and has great potential. We stayed in a lodge at the edge of the forest. All accommodation in the area is expensive, this was amongst the cheapest but that doesn't excuse a room that hasn't been cleaned properly, I checked under the bed on leaving as we had dropped some makeup and it was filthy -...

We stayed one night, before entering Yosemite. It is conveniently located outside the park, so it enjoys a nice price, and quick groceries, as opposed to lodging inside the park. The staff is very friendly and nice, and the place is a hotel that feels like a real canin lodge. There is dinner and breakfast, and nearby great food options....

Really basic lodging. Motel is in serious need of updating. Needs new shower. No air conditioning.Walls paper thin, can hear guests in adjacent rooms. Poor experience. Only positive it was close to Yosemite entrance.

My family and I booked a two-night stay at White Chief Mountain Lodge a couple of weeks ago. We had read the reviews on TripAdvisor prior to our visit, and were expecting the worst. But we were pleasantly surprised. The staff was extremely kind and helpful to us, the room was spacious for four people and the balcony pointed right...
