Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite

Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Tenaya Lodge at Yosemite is a 294-room, four-pearl hotel surrounded by Sierra National Forest, about two miles from the South Gate entrance of Yosemite National Park. It’s a comfortable enough place with a homey ambiance, and simple decor inspired by Native American and Southwestern patterns as well as the great wilderness just beyond its walls. It's a bit like a fancy hunting club’s headquarters -- the large, rustic reception area has high ceilings with dark wooden beams, and many cozy chairs and couches for relaxing. The rooms are modern and covered in rich autumn colors, though some of the furniture could use some sprucing up. The quaint cottages are a short walk from the main lodge and come with fireplaces and private balconies. With five on-site restaurants, an abundance of outdoor recreational activities, two pools, and a wonderful fitness center and spa, this is a nice place to feel a bit pampered in Yosemite -- but keep in mind that many of these "perks" (such as Wi-Fi and the activities) come with extra fees.
The Ahwahnee

The Ahwahnee Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Nestled deep amongst the pine trees, cliffs, and canyons of Yosemite Valley is the 123-room Ahwahnee Hotel. The impressive stone and wood structure, built in 1927, is considered a National Historic Landmark. Rooms with views of the Half Dome and El Captain summits are filled with wood and rich tapestries of Native American design. Highlights here include the Great Lounge with 24-foot-high ceilings and a large stone fireplace along with the light-flooded dining room. This hotel is on the expensive side -- and parking is limited -- but the prime location and views are worth the price tag.
Evergreen Lodge at Yosemite

Evergreen Lodge at Yosemite Rating: 3.0 Pearls

Evergreen Lodge is a 22-acre cabin resort surrounded by Stanislaus National Forest, about one mile from Yosemite National Park’s western border. The 90 cabins come in different sizes -- some perfect for newlyweds, others great for a large family -- and are rustic, cozy, and comfortable with large private decks. Techies beware: There are no phones or TVs in the cabins, and the Wi-Fi service in the recreation halls is less than reliable. It's a great spot for nature lovers, though, who want to be disconnected from the world for a bit and enjoy the serenity of the surrounding pine trees instead. Guests looking for something active to do will find it too -- there's some equipment for rent on-site, such as mountain bikes and snowshoes, plus fly fishing, bocce ball, rafting, horseback riding, and two recreational halls filled with games, books, and arts & crafts materials. And the outdoor pool opened in Spring 2012, making the Evergreen an even better spot for families. However, due to the raging Rim Fire, several acres of the surrounding forest are burned. The hotel's website details the extent of the damage but fortunately the property was virtually unscathed.
Wawona Hotel

Wawona Hotel Rating: 2.0 Pearls

Yosemite's Wawona Hotel is not only one of the oldest mountain resorts in California, but is also a National Historic Landmark. Located between the Mariposa Groves and tourist hot spot Yosemite Valley, the hotel occupies its own patch of secluded property of streams and forest. This Victorian-style property was built in 1876 and is filled with classic period pieces, portraits, patterned walllpaper, and genuine antiques. Rooms are cozy and charming, though 50 of the hotel's 104 rooms lack private baths. Staying true to its roots, the hotel has no phones or TVs, but it does offer Wi-Fi in a few common areas. There is just one dining option on-site -- where evenings include live piano music -- and Yosemite Valley is a 45-minute drive away.
Yosemite Lodge at the Falls

Yosemite Lodge at the Falls Rating: 2.0 Pearls

This 249-room budget hotel sits right in the heart of Yosemite Valley and within walking distance of the beautiful Yosemite Falls -- so guests going for location over charm might consider this option. It is significantly cheaper than the one other hotel right in the area, the more upscale Ahwahnee -- and the property reflects the lower rates. The room decor is probably going for "rustic," but it comes off as more outdated and just plain old, with cracked walls and loose screws. The two dining options on-site leave much to be desired -- one operates like a high school cafeteria and the other serves average food at fine dining prices. It's safe to say the location and low cost is about all that Yosemite Lodge at the Falls has going for it (plus a pool).
Curry Village

Curry Village Rating: 1.0 Pearls

Curry Village is a community of cabins, tent cabins, and motel rooms along with some retail and dining establishments. The 48-acre property is located in the heart of Yosemite Valley right below Glacier Point and near Half Dome and Yosemite Village. The 499 accommodations are ideal for campers and visitors who want to experience the park and its attractions on a more rugged and communal level. Private bathrooms, heaters, electrical outlets, and phones are hard to come by, except in pricier units. Bigger motel rooms and cabins are outfitted with rustic decor, while the tent cabins are basically just for sleeping and getting dressed. There are no cooking facilities or campfire rings, but there’s a buffet-style cafeteria and spots to get pizza, coffee, and ice cream.
