Location Very old sheets, old Capet old everything
Room was unique with a loft area. Good location very close to Yosemite. Room was facing the highway with a lot of noise. No view at all.
Great location. Rooms have a small fridge with freezer, two burner stove, toaster, coffee maker, dishes and some pots and pans. Large rooms and large balcony. We had a "mountain view" which was cheaper and looked towards the river, but with a parking lot and pool in between, but still lots of mountain to be seen! Heat pump fan could not be set to stay on all the time so it woke us up over and over again throughout the night. Room became far too warm to sleep if we turned it off. Carpets, walls, bathroom grout, etc. need scrubbing, but counters, sheets etc seemed clean.
We were originally given a room that already had someone in it.
I called to change my reservation from 2 nights to 1 and the person on the phone told me I had to cancel the whole reservation and re-reserve. When she went to re-reserve a room for the one night there were no rooms available. Odd because I just cancelled the resrvation. Too bad the system doesn't update quickly enough to show the available room. Too bad I did not get to stay there at all. Very bummed.
The location is the best for exploring Yosemite, about 10 minutes from the valley. We have had good experiences with this property in the past. This is the second time in a row we have been stuck in the front building next to the highway instead of one of the many buildings overlooking the Merced river. The worst part however was that the power went out around 9:30 PM and there was no phones or generator to operate safety lights. Of course everything is electric powered including the kitchenette, heater and phone. No way to heat food, no way to heat the room in the sub-freezing temperature and no way to call the front desk or for help in an emergency. I dont know what time the power came back on because we fell asleep about 2 hours into the outage since there was nothing to do but lay in the total darkness!
Great location right outside the park. Rooms are clean and enjoyed having the kitchenette during our stay. The restaurant is also surprisingly decent and convenient. Biggest downside is the Internet situation. Internet is not included but can be purchased for $9.99 for a 24 hour period. Fine, we paid but only to realize only one device at a time was allowed to connect and you have to go through a process to disconnect one and than connect another. Super lame.
Kitchenette was nice.
It is a beautiful setting. Our sliding doors opened up to the river. The pizza restauraunt was good. The breakfast buffet at the other restaurant was ok. We did not try more on the menu. The place was in bad repair. One of the electric burners in the kitchenette didn't heat, and when I moved the pan, it sent out sparks. The people above us overflowed their tub. When I called to report the water coming through our bathroom ceiling, the said they knew about it, and were dealing with it. They never came by or called back to check the status of our room. I found a clothing article from a previous guest on the floor, making me wonder how thorougly they had cleaned. I found out that the washing of the dishes in the kitchenette was our responsibility, and that there was no professional sanitizing of the dishes between guests. This place looks like it was nice when it was first built, but now it is not properly cared for, and has sunk below the level of a motel 6 stay. The natural setting on the river is the only thing it has going for it.
Located just outside Yosemite entrance. Clean and comfortable, if a bit dated.
perfect location, nice to have the kitchenette, fine view, comfortable room room needs updating. one stove burner did not work.
river view room was great needs a little sprucing up-ice machines inoperative-general room conditions could stand some improvements
Room was clean and confortable There was an extra charge for WiFi which was not disclosed until after you booked the reservation. The restaurant did not open for breakfast until 7:30 and lacked variety in the choices.
Food at restaurant was so so
$1.80 for a cup of crappy coffee in the lobby. Why not complimentary?
Spacious and clean room No cellular service and wifi is not free after you pay $200 per night or more. After paying $10 for 24hrs wifi still it doesn't work well.
Had everything we needed in one place
I like the fact that it was close to Yosemite National Park and that it was about a 15 minute drive there. I enjoyed the look of the whole place especially with all the bears around. I enjoyed all of the surroundings view. The food there was GREAT!!! From the buffet to the bar and grill. Fast service and well worth the costs. The staff was great and gave out great information and did not sugar coat anything. Very helpful when it came to information. My wife and I really enjoyed the picnic are across the street we really enjoyed the river and the picnic table there. Very romantic and very quiet area. I did not like the fact of paying for a king size room and getting a room with 2 queen beds and over the top of the banquet area where my wife and I had to hear the music and the actual party. They should have taken that in consideration when they gave us the room. i did like the fact of no cell phone signal let alone wifi that is as slow as dial up, but that has nothing to do with the lodge, that's just the location. I did not like that they did not have Coke to drink. A little more variety to drink would have been nice.
Great location close to Yosemite park entrance. Nicely located across from the river. Pleasant outdoor areas, including the area on the river. The restaurant was just 'okay'. Our delux room with 2 queen beds and a sofa had only one chair. We would have liked an option with one queen or king bed, a sofa , and a table with 2 chairs. We are a mature couple no children traveling with us. Also, the refrigerator was nice to have but very noisy. We ended up unplugging it.
You could tell that the room was cleaned regularly, but everything (bed, chairs, shower, etc) was well traveled. Quiet location with close proximity to the valley. Onsite dining isn't great, but the convenience is nice.
Cheap price compared to the other accommodation. Pretty close to Yosemite. Easy check in /check out . No phone reception . No wifi . The room is pretty old , but everything is working . The fans and the heaters are really loud . Even if your neighbors turn them on . But I would stay there again anyways .
The service at the front desk, store, bar, restaurant was all around excellent. Everyone was very friendly and super accommodating. The room was clean and quiet. Not too far from Yosemite Nat'l Park. We go to Yosemite every year and I'll definitely stay at Cedar Lodge again.
Clean, well maintained, friendly staff, continental breakfast well done, and multiple restaurants and cute stores within a few blocks walking distance.
The check in staff was great, the lady who oversees the breakfast was amazing..... So super helpful!!! I would go back and stay again!!!! Hot tub was closed becuase of winter : (
Tidy overall. polyester bedding is not very comfortable. Hotel has good amenities just not high quality ones. Water pressure was not good. Breakfast was sufficient but definitely not exceptional. Reasonable price. Plenty of family friendly amenities. Clean. Tolerable driving distance to Yosemite Valley. Free breakfast.
The hotel is located at the end of Mariposa and within walking distance from shops and restaurants. The hotel staff was fantastic. The ladies at the front desk were friendly and helpful when needed. At breakfast, although the room was packed, the crew kept the place clean and well stocked. Will stay again and recommend to others.
Nasty carpet. Bad products. Bad breakfast. Not worth the money
Fantastic experience, great hosts, visiting deer every morning. mariposa was very nice area also.
Wow. This was our first B&B and we were wowed. Joy indeed lives up to her name and made sure that all the guests felt right at home. It showed as the guests mingled beautifully. Ah, to wake up to the sound of wild turkeys and incredible breakfasts. Hope to meet Clay next time.
This was such a wonderful experience that I must begin with the owner's comment when my wife and I arrived late after a very trying journey through the high Sierras. He said 'hello, you must be tired from your travels, let me show you to your room' I have travelled around the United States and have had the pleasure of staying in some very fine establishments but I never had anyone say that to me . The room was wonderfully appointed with way more than we could ever use, splendidly clean and famously comfortable and deliciously quiet. Then came breakfast, so wonderful with so many home made side dishes, fresh fruit, great company in their kitchen looking out the bay window to the Sierras that I could have remained there all day. At night we sat out on their expansive deck looking at the stars in our universe in the quiet, then we went to bed,then we hated to leave. I felt like I was leaving my own home . Don't wonder what this will be like, just enjoy it.
The place is fantastic! Awsome, friendly people, out of the way, and quite. Its about 45 min. to inside the park, but very nice to get away from the business of the valley, at Yosmite.. Great morning breakfast too! this place goes great with the overall experience of the National Park. it s just beatiful!! they make you feel right at home. Thanks Joy and Clay, we hope to be back in the future!'
Love the wonderful breakfast. They also give me lots of helpful information and the snacks and bottle water really make me feel like stay at home.
Hotel Employee were phenomenal. The breakfasts were so delicious. And the room was quiet, clean, private. LOVED the quiet and birds on the back deck. We SO enjoyed this place!
Can't believe how lucky I was to find and spend 3 days at Joy and Clay's lovely B&B, Yosemite Bed and Breakfast. Our room, The Sierra Room, was both private and well stocked. All the rooms have private entrances and bathrooms. The rooms are also air-conditioned, which is an important option when it really heats up. High speed internet, helps you keep in touch, if you'd like, ot the outside world. And, if you choose, you can watch satellite tv or a dvd, in your room. The grounds are well kept with plenty of seating options to enjoy the outdoors setting, including a Barbecue grill for evening cooking. I absolutely loved having my morning coffee outside while watching the little territorial humming birds zip around the feeders. The cottage has a full kitchen and a lovely view of the canyon below. The pool was a fun option for my sons for cooling off in the warm summer weather. Breakfasts were a full American style, delicious breakfast served on fine china. What a trea...
