Nice hotel but overpricedPosted Aug 18, 2014
Very nice lobby, nice desk staff, nice room (except for lack of dusting and slightly moldy tiles in shower), but overpriced. Food was good but very overpriced. Limited food options. Very near south entrance to Yosemite but long drive to Yosemite Valley.

Paying mainly for locationPosted Aug 14, 2014
Pros: view, cleanliness of room
Cons: easy to find exits, more rapid elevator service, better lighting in restaurant area
Location: Absolutely wonderful location for entering Yosemite from the south entrance. Just a mile or two away.
The Tenaya lodge was adequate for a stay close to Yosemite. The staff was polite and effective, though the valet attendants are a bit over-solicitous. The rooms, though comfortable and clean, especially the bathrooms, need a bit of updating. We found the exits from the hotel to the pool area and restaurant to be very confusing to get to, and the elevator is incredibly slow, with stairs not easy to find. The outdoor seating for the restaurant is very pleasant, and the food is good. We were trying to sign the bill in the dark, however. Needed my phone light. There should be candles placed on the table, or help with light offered by the wait staff. But...the layout and view is very pretty. Overall, a nice stay, but overpriced for what you get.

Over PricedPosted Aug 12, 2014
Nice place, but very over priced. I stayed in a number of Holiday Inn Express hotels that were just as nice, and included a free breakfast, which Tenaya does not. $16 for a hamburger and fries is outrageous!

Teneya LodgePosted Aug 9, 2014
Good lodge - great pool - full of Brits so it must be well marketed in the UK. Just what we needed for a 3 day break. Jackalopes menu is a bit limited.

A nice hotel close to Yosemitie VillagePosted Aug 6, 2014
We had left The huge well appointed rooms of The Bellagio in Las Vegas on the morning and after travelling the 6hrs to Tenaya Lodge I felt rather underwhelmed with the room. Don't get me wrong the beds were very comfotable the food was good and the staff great, but the room was dark and general corridor areas need to be updated as soon as possible as they felt really tired. As I said these were minor points and we had a really great 4 days at Tenaya Lodge despite the above criticisms. I would still recommend it to my friends but it could be a fantastic place with a little more TLC.

Wonderful facilities in a fabulous locationPosted Aug 2, 2014
Pros: Great amenities, lovely pools, hot tubs, sun beds with fun activities like archery & wall climbing. The launderette was much appreciated too.
Location: Next to the wonderful giant sequoias, which we visited by horseback. The national park is beautiful.
Yosemite is a beautiful place & it was lovely to be able to enjoy such wonderful facilities closeby. We particularly enjoyed the salt water pool with the underwater music plus eating outside overlooking the pool in the morning or by the fire pit in the evening. All the staff were very friendly & helpful. We would recommend this highly to anyone.

Stay at Tenaya LodgePosted Jul 26, 2014
Pros: They had good live music in the lobby every evening. The staff was friendly for the most part.
Cons: Housekeeping repeatedly did not replenish soap, shampoo etc. The rooms were so dark and the lighting was so poor that it was difficult to see things.
Location: We were right by the kiddie pool so things got pretty noisy during the day but at least it was the noise of children.
The lobby and eating areas are fine. The rooms feel cramped and are extremely dark.
