Cozy historical hotel

Posted Jan 7, 2015
Pros: Online
Cons: N/A
Location: south of Yosemite National Park, several hiking trails around hotel, 15 min to Mariposa grove, 30 min to Yosemite Valley
I love everything about this hotel. The room I got is very small with no bathroom but it is not a problem at all. It looks really cozy/classy inside with all winter decoration. Location is great. This hotel is a bit pricey but to think about the experience I had it's worth the money. One thing I was surprised about it is that all the bathrooms are outside of the building. It was a winter time when I was there and it was very cold outside. I just had to wrap myself up every time I want to go there; it was a fun experience though.

Beautiful historic hotel

Posted Dec 31, 2014
There were no sound prove between rooms at all. For the reason, we heard enough children's cry, scream most of our staying at the room. It wasn't good comfortable experience at all.

Cozy Couple get away

This hotel is a must do. We enjoyed the Christmas activities. The room was lovely. For a quiet couple get away it is tops.

Great location. Great staff.

We went up for a quick weekend to see the snow. The Wawona was more than we expected. Quaint, but everything was in good condition. It was definitely worth the price. The check-in staff was friendly. Especially Stacey! Thank you Wawona. We'll be back!

Holiday Magic

Posted Dec 22, 2014
Pros: This was our 5th or 6th stay spanning twenty years' time, always in winter. Pluses: quiet outdoor setting; popular cross-country skiing area nearby.
Cons: Not sure. I've briefly visited here in other seasons, but its appeal is not as magical as during the winter season.
Location: Near the south entrance to Yosemite NP, there's downhill and X-country skiing nearby at Badger Pass, snow-shoeing, hiking, etc.
Beautifully decorated in unique, hand-made window swags, mantelpiece display, tree ornaments, etc, the Wawona proudly wears its historical past. Come here to marvel at the tasteful artistry, and to relax in the cozy, intimate fireplace setting with vintage piano tunes each evening in the adjacent parlor. If you're chained to your tech devices, better look elsewhere for lodging. Otherwise, the Wawona Hotel provides a restful, peaceful experience that will help you make memories that last.

Magnificent historic hotel in a beautiful setting. Great service. Casual atmosphere. It's at the entrance to Yosemite away from crowds and traffic.

Good accomdoation, welll worth the stay

Posted Nov 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
Room number 1 at the end of the block was great. Provided a baby cot for toddler and worked well. No tv or internet in room (wifi zone in selected block) but so tired form exploring it did not make a difference. Dinner pricey but great setting and very welcoming. Would recommend for stay as its in the park and close to other accomodation to try different dinner if needs be.

Great hotel and location. Something important though, the standard rooms don't have bathrooms. You have common showers and toilets and they are perfectly clean and warm. Customer just need to know about this.

Great Setting

Posted Nov 25, 2014
We have been to the Wawona Hotel a number of times over the years. This was a stop on the way home after 2 weeks of driving up the coast. The staff was helpful. We love the fact that there is no TV and limited wifi. We are forced to relax and enjoy nature.
