GreenLeaders Silver level
Yosemite Valley Lodge is a favorite choice for families and large groups. Its close proximity to Yosemite Falls makes it the perfect base camp for exploring Yosemite National Park. Its glass and wood architecture work in unity with the surroundings and the ample windows allow in the bright mountain sunshine while providing remarkable views.

Since Aramark has taken over, the Park concessionaire service has seriously declined. Honestly I used to get frustrated from time to time with Delaware North (the past concessionaire) but Aramark has set a new low bar with even higher prices. AND it will be this way for 10 years. I'm glad to have so many other Natl Parks to visit. The food is low quality and tasteless for high $, the rooms may or may not be clean, the internet service is poor, and the desk personnel know little about the Park. I have been coming to Yosemite 2-3/yr for the past 20 yrs. I have never experienced the Park in such disarray. I have hesitated writing this review for a number of years (new contract, fires, Covid...) but the poor service and quality have continued long enough. Aramark has the contract until 2031, I would encourage folks to find other destinations until then. I know, Delaware North was a villain in kidnapping the lodging names, I'm with you! But Aramark is pathetic at providing the services Yosemite deserves.

If you are going to Yosemite for a few days this is it. Is it a 5-star hotel? NO , but it gets a 5-star rating because of where it is. Incredibly convenient location , just park the car and start walking. Restaurants/bar/shop within 200 yards of your room , view of Yosemite Falls right outside your door , sit on your balcony /patio and watch bears walk by. Rooms are basic but have what you need; Fridge , good TV with cable , functional internet speed ( no , you can't stream videos etc ) and fast wireless reception ( at least with Verizon ). This is the only place we would ever stay while in Yosemite.

We were in room 3601 from 11/23/21 till 11/26/21. I went to the front desk to let them know the hair conditioner was off, the fridge was frosted up and the curtain was unhooked. I was told very curtly: “Anything else?” I was taken aback and I was leaving but I came back and told him: “I am not asking for anything that would not be in the standards of a Motel 6” They changed the hair conditioner, changed the fridge and fixed the curtain. I was waiting for the fridge to get cold, it did not, the light turned on when opening the door. On day afterwards, I decided to call the front desk and let them know about the fridge. It took two calls for them to come. They had not turned the fridge on. It is an Avanti model and the knob is on the back. They took no responsibilily. The wooden slats on one of the windows did not work either. There was no WiFi. The customer service would say it is spotty, that it is limited, that it is best at the Front Desk, and when pressed, they recognized that there is not WiFi in the rooms. I said they should say so in their webpage and they told me lightly they should. It is not spotty, it is not limited, it is not best. The Front Desk told me there is no WiFi in the rooms, it is not limited as they advertise. Perhaps they have a few rooms that get some of the Front Desk WiFi and that is all. The customer service is trained to deflect the issues and probably by habit they do not empathize with the experience the customer is having. I believe customers tend to overlook that they have been taken advantage of because there is nothing they can do once they are there and the location is magical.

$315 a night for a Saturday night sets the bar for disappointment. You are paying for location, location, location ! Check in is a 5:00 pm and check out at 10:00 am. 4:30 pm we were able to get one room but the other wasn’t ready until 5:00. Now at 4:30 pm in November it is cold and getting dark. You are ready for your room before 5 pm. The bar doesn’t open until 5 and you have to go to the bar to order food and drink. Tables were completely full By 6pm when we went in and a long line to order food or drinks . The cafeteria food area had a line of probably 40 plus people. Our teen kids ordered some food but it was all hard and not great. Luckily we had packed some items that filled the gaps. Plan to bring food and drinks . Not great food options here at this hotel with tons of tired people trying to get something to eat and drink. No fireplaces lit or outside heaters to accommodate people. The beds and pillows were old and hard . The blankets are old gross things that are hidden between two sheets. This place has some charm but it really needs a modernization at this price. Many services are closed for Covid all throughout the park and things aren’t being maintained. The location of this hotel puts you right in the middle of the valley floor which gives you a early advantage to your day before the crowds descend into the valley floor. This would be the reason to stay here for the location . Bring your own food and drinks to filled the gaps and doesn’t expect luxury at the $300 price tag and you will be ok.

Run down 1950s country $2/night roadside motel but at $315 per night in a spectacular national park in 2021. Lights have 40 W bulbs( too dim to read with when more than a foot away), half the bathroom has no ceiling, yellowing wall paint, etc. etc. A national embarrassment run by/for the national park service. Disgraceful ripoff by the park service. The restaurant/food hall looks make shift and badly in need of a refresh - worn carpets, tired cafeteria tables, shabby rest rooms, etc and serving what looks and tastes like prison food. AVOID.
