TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

I just got back from MLK weekend in Yosemite, staying at Tenaya. This was a getaway with my girlfriend, as we were hoping for some snow in the valley. Unfortunately we didn't get any, but Yosemite is Yosemite - it doesn't need snow to be breathtaking. To add to the experience, I wanted to stay somewhere nice. The Ahwahnee (now The Majestic Yosemite hotel, or something like that) was fully booked, so the next best full service option that was on the nicer side was Tenaya. I was skeptical about staying here, as I stayed here in 2014 and it had a bit of a motel feel to it. However, i did my research, reading recent reviews, and seeing on their website that there had been many renovations. Just to be safe, I booked their Garden Suite, the third-highest tier of room available. New and contemporary, it seemed it would be luxurious and worth the premium rate. Now, let me get into my review of our stay: I'll start by saying that everyone we encountered at the hotel was very pleasant and the service was excellent. It definitely made our stay comfortable that the staff was great. However, that is pretty much it for the good part. Our room was beautiful, with luxury finishes, design, and decor as photographed online. Unfortunately, the "private patio area" as described on their website, is not private at all. It is a tiny little cement patio about 20 feet from the street where people walk by and cars drive by throughout the day. I found it rather disappointing that the luxury adult-only suites with a separate, private entrance, offered this little privacy. The room had an electric fireplace, about 2-3 feet long, that offered little heat. We wanted to eat a dessert by the warmth of the fire one night, and had to sit on the floor right in front of it to feel any heat. The TV is nice and large, and good quality, but we had to turn the volume up to about 80% to remotely hear the movie we were watching - good selection of movies, though. The bed was comfortable as were the pillows, and most of the furniture. The bathroom is very nicely done, though the soaking tub is very small. It is deep and fits a lot of water, but for my 5'10" girlfriend, and my 6'3" self, it was not the most convenient. The shower is nice and large, with a great showerhead, but the systems seem like they are ancient. When I turned on the shower, there was a very high-pitched squeal that did not stop, and when I switched to the handheld showerhead, the wall started rumbling and shaking like an old car engine. We asked to see another room upon arrival, and we were taken one floor up to the spa suite. The room is large, but the burgundy/maroon carpet and old finished still felt like a motel like it did back in 2014. The bathroom had a larger soaking tub, but a large scratch along the side of it, and the rest of the finishes like the plastic shower door from the '90s felt cheap. The food at Jackalope's Bar & Grill is average, at best. I'm sure it would be great for kids, as they offer good sandwiches and burgers, though without much flavor to them. My girlfriend ordered the lettuce wraps, and we sent them back. I don't know if the chef wanted to get creative, but a layer of butter lettuce on a plate topped with a salad of cubed chicken and more lettuce and other ingredients are not the iceberg minced ingredient lettuce wraps I am used to.... she then ordered the seared ahi tuna sandwich, which tasted straight out of the ocean. Fortunately, the breakfast was great, except when someone orders an omelete, shouldn't it be the extra ingredients mixed into the egg? This omelette was more like an egg taco, as the egg was simply folded in half with the ingredients stuffed into the fold. Our dinner at the Sierra Restaurant was delicious, though. And dessert at both places was great. As for the spa, we were excited for this. We didn't book any treatments, but went to use the common services like the steam/sauna (no jacuzzi or special relaxation/mist shower room). Both disappointing. The steam room is gross. Barely any steam, and done with a white bathroom tile that generously demonstrates all the dirt and hair of users past with a bright ugly white light, as well as the puddles of water. It wasn't even steamy, simply slightly humid. Oh well, perhaps the sauna would be good - how can you mess that up? Well, I was in there for about 10-15 minutes, and I didn't work up a sweat. It felt like a slightly hot room, and also had that blinding white light - not the best for relaxing. Maybe the services would have been great, but the free stuff certainly was not - hard to believe its such a great and luxurious spa. So there you have it. Unfortunately the limited supply in and around Yosemite make this one of the better options for a full-service hotel, but it really only ranks 4 stars because it HAS the amenities. The service is 4-5 star, but the quality of everything else is 3 star at best. You have to pay up to feel like you're in a motel, and even then the expensive premium for the adult-only luxury suites in the OFF SEASON is not worth it. Especially considering the hotel is still a 50 minute drive from the valley.

Spent two nights at Tenaya Lodge with a group tour over the Christmas holiday. It was beautiful! The rooms are large and the beds are awesome! Food was great and plentiful. Gift shop had a great selection and variety, and various food venues were outstanding as well. Pool was large, two hot tubs available - one for adults only, which was nice. Arcade for kids had a wide variety of activities. Trails around the property were fun to hike, horse drawn carriage ride was nice, ice skating rink was huge! The spa looked amazing, and the work-out area was reasonably large and well-equipped in my opinion. Loved the breakfast buffet, and my seat in front of a fire and at the window with a great view outside couldn't have been better! Also enjoyed the outdoor seating areas with heat lamps and fires, so we could be outside even in December! The setting in the forest is gorgeous. The resort recently had a multi-million dollar remodeling and it showed! The entrance lounge with the huge Christmas tree and the large fireplace were stunning and a comfortable place to relax. Lounge areas on the second floor looking down on this area were also pleasant.

Attended a wedding of a co workers daughter. The place is beautifully set at the mouth of Yosemite National park. Being January the outdoor pools and spas were shut down and there were limited activities due to the lack of snow. Summertime offers much more. The price was a bit high for the room as the walls and ceilings are very thin and you can here your next door newborns as well as people walking above ( ask for 4th floor) The food was very good for a wedding buffet. The service at the front is good and the location is great. May go back in the Summer to see how it goes

The location is 2 miles from the entrance to Yosemite, so that can’t be beat. The hotel blends into its surroundings, which is very nice. It gives you the woodsy feel without being exposed to the elements outdoors. The hotel customer service is very good and attentive. The Ascent Spa is excellent. They have great couples massage sessions and individual massage sessions. They are full service and the staff is very attentive. The restaurants on the resort property are okay but VERY overpriced. Their menus never change and a family of four can expect to pay approximately $100 per meal at EVERY restaurant on property. A good recommendation would be to bring your own snacks and drinks for your room. Each room has a fridge and microwaves are available upon request. The other way to save significant money on food is to drive 15 minutes to Oakhurst and dine at their much more reasonably priced restaurants or go to Raley’s or Von’s for groceries. Overall, the Tanaya Lodge is very family friendly and the location can’t be beat, but your wallet will take a beating because you’ll be charged for everything.

This is a great Lodge to stay if you are visiting the southern part of Yosemite National Park. It is 5 minutes to the southern entry to the park. The Lodge is fairly large but well spread out with fairly good facilities. Food in the main restaurants is expensive but they have a very good Pizza place on the facility that is reasonable charged. One may need to wait long for a table at peak breakfast times, so better to reserve in advance.
