Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Located just 2 miles from Yosemite’s South Gate entrance
  • Rooms have warm, rustic ambiance with Native American, Southwestern decor
  • Suites and cottages available with private balconies, fireplaces, and deep tubs
  • 5 restaurants, from a pizzeria to fine dining
  • Indoor and outdoor 18-meter pools; 4 Jacuzzis
  • 10,000-square-foot full-service Ascent Spa
  • 2,900-square-foot fitness center is very modern
  • On-site gift shop sells souvenirs and supplies
  • Lots of meeting space, and wedding facilities
  • Pet-friendly: doggie treats, water bowl, and beds available

Cons

  • Some furniture looks run-down
  • Room walls are thin
  • Standard room bathrooms are a bit small
  • Fee for most activities and for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

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.

Some of the breathtaking main attracts are El Capitan, Half Dome, Mariposa Grove and Tuolumne Meadows. Additionally, the park offers a wide range of outdoor activities, such as hiking, biking, skiing, horseback riding and rock climbing.
