at the Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite
First trip to Yosemite
Feb 11th, 2020
Yosemite was definitely worth the visit! It was absolutely breathtaking. What made the trip better was Tenaya lodge, the location was ideal! Beautiful atmosphere! I used the spa here and had a massage it was so so lovely! Food in the hotel was nice and the service was great too! Staff dropped us up a bottle of wine and chocolate when we arrived as it was my birthday, such a nice touch! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
Third time we've stayed here, can't wait to go back.

Tenaya Lodge is so well done. We stayed in the main lodge in a king room. The dining rooms and bar had been renovated since our last visit and they were better than before. The staff is welcoming and always helpful. The location is a short drive to the south entrance of Yosemite. We've visited in spring, summer and fall. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
Hidden "Resort Fee"
Feb 5th, 2020
Be careful when booking this property. The quoted price does not include the substantial taxes and there is also a "Resort Fee" of $30 per day. The "Resort Fee" actually is a way for the property to appear much cheaper than the advertised daily rate. Due to the false advertising that I discovered after booking the room, I was lucky to still be in the applicable cancelation period and I cancelled my reservation. I do not want to patronize a company that engages in this unfair business practice. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
Wonderful Stay at Tenaya
Feb 4th, 2020
We had a great stay at Tenaya Lodge. Check-in was friendly, quick, efficient and informative. This is important to me, after traveling for 12 plus hours, all I want is to get into my room without hassles and delay. Lobby was exactly what you would want for your Visit to Yosemite. There was always a roaring fire going at the entrance and several more throughout, which gave it a warm lodge feel. The room was spacious and clean. Rustic decor for its mountain feel. Beds were comfortable and linens were soft. Bathroom water pressure was good and towels were thick. We received excellent value for our money. Breakfast was included with our stay as well as daily activities. We took advantage of it all, and they welcomed it. What made this hotel stand out was the young staffs and their willingness to help. Breakfast buffet was average/good and off the menu breakfast items were excellent. We had burgers, drinks and apps at the only open onsite restaurant Jackalopes on several occasions and although a bit pricey, the food was good and the convenience can’t be beat. We participated in both the evening and daytime walking tours and archery and they were a lot of fun and the guides were informative and friendly. My only complaint was the paperthin walls. I could hear people talking and walking through the Corridors. They provide you with earplugs in the nightstand drawer. It is not a five star resort, but that was not what we were looking for. It is an excellent, well run property with beautiful grounds. It more than met our needs for this particular trip. We look forward to someday coming back with our adult children and family.

Another great retreat at my favorite resort!
Jan 27th, 2020
I just returned from our annual Christian Women's Retreat, and was just as impressed as ever with both the facilities and the service. As one of the only exhibitors, my allocated space is in the huge foyer between the ballroom and other meeting rooms. The staff had my tables all set up well before I arrived, and were very prompt and cheerful about providing anything else I needed. Personally, I have never met any employee at Tenaya Lodge who was anything less than very pleasant, from the bellhops and cleaning staff to the check-in staff to the banquet coordinator, food service staff, and concierge. The rooms I have stayed in over the past 10-15 years have always been clean, comfortable, and nicely furnished. This year was no exception. When an extra cot was needed, the staff have done their best to provide it (sometimes they may have a shortage if our group grows to 400-500 women!). The entire resort has a High Sierra mountain cabin feel, from the cozy fire burning in the huge fireplace to the beautiful photographs of Yosemite, to the gift shop, and beyond. Though I've never had time to use the indoor or outdoor pool, hot tub or spa, I have spent an enjoyable hour or two in the exercise room. One of the maintenance crew even taught me how to play pool! Fun. :) A few months ago I accompanied my husband to Tenaya for meetings he was attending. Our group spent an enjoyable evening at the Summerdale BBQ. There were age-appropriate activities for the children (face painting, coloring activities, and more), live music, smores packets for everyone to toast their marshmallows over the campfire, and a delicious meal. After dark, they had arranged for an amateur astronomer to be available up on the hotel deck, and among other planets or constellations, he was able to point out the international space station and even Saturn with its rings! My only regret is that Tenaya Lodge apparently no longer offers sleigh rides. The year my daughter treated our family to sleigh rides to and from a campfire with hot cocoa, we all had a great time. Maybe they no longer get enough snow consistently in the winter to justify keeping the sleigh rides going. Sad. The concierge can make a variety of special arrangements. On my previous visit I went on a guided hike through the forest. I happened to be the only "customer" and had both a regular guide and a trainee guide. Both were very friendly, and I had a great hike. I learned a few things about nature in the Sierras, and even taught my guides a couple things they didn't know from my years out in nature. Since Tenaya Lodge is quite close to the entrance to Yosemite National Park, it is a good destination on its own or a stopping-off place on your way into the park. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
