Amazing amenities for families. Like a big camp, enjoyed by the whole family. Awesome game rooms, playgrounds and zip lines, fantastic pool and hot tubs for under the night sky... the list goes on. This place is a dream for families going to Yosemite.

Hotel's Favourite
My partner and I stayed here 2 nights and wish we had stayed more! The hotel and grounds are incredible with great detail put in to everything. Our room was spacious and incredibly clean. The restaurant food was delicious and they catered to my allergies so I had no worries eating there which was appreciated. The s’mores and free games were also great. As part of our package we did the Wonders of Yosemite Tour, our guide, Loretta was fantastic and it was the highlight of our whole trip! We got to see some amazing places and would highly recommend Rush Creek Lodge and the tour to anyone!

Spend 3 nights at the Rush Creek Lodge while visiting Yosemite. Prior to arriving the recreation team was kind and answered all my questions through email. The hotel feels new and clean (which is nice when compared to other Yosemite hotels we visited). The vibe I got was "a luxury ski resort meets camp" given the "do it yourself vibe". No bellboys to receive your luggage, and even though we got new towels, our beds were never made. (This was not clear to us upon check-in). Rooms are spacious, have a private terrace and have a nice bathroom. Cozy decoration, nice heating, coffee machine in rooms. The ones facing the pool have a nicer view. We had breakfast and dinner there every night and did not get bored. Staff was friendly, and food was delicious. Our group enjoyed the free s'mores, and loved the Convenience store to buy gourmet goodies for our hikes. We also visited the nearby sister hotel property Evergreen for lunch one day, and it was outstanding. The lodge is just outside one of the gates to the park, and a 45 minute drive to the parks main attractions. Would return again!

No masks required. 99% of the staff don’t have mask on, restaurant (indoor), reception, playrooms. Some guests are self aware enough to put one on (us)! As for the room, I understand that the hotel is trying to get us to unplug and the no TV thing in the room was a welcoming change. People spending time with their kids playing board games. Now housekeeping, we had the bed made up one day and the next day, our bed wasn’t made. Called the front desk and they said “yeah we don’t do that anymore.”Some inconsistencies in the service for sure. The WiFi, was just so bad. If you are thinking about working from the hotel and then go to the park? Forget about it. I couldn’t even post a single photo to my Instagram in the room. I feel like in a hotel that cost $440 a night, the least of everything is to have some sort of WiFi signal. Again, I understand why it was but for me, I was disappointed. I got better signal inside Yosemite than in the hotel. All in all, still much room to improve and this review will also go on my Chinese social media.

we enjoyed a fantastic stay at the hotel. the rooms and facilities are phenomenal and the views and proximity to the forest make the hotel the perfect gateway to yosemite. friendly staff, plenty of amenities for the kids and free s’mores every night…everything you need for a perfect family vacation. only call out are the long waits in the restaurant and the need to book your table in advance
