          Lovely and clean room, good position, kind staff, a great piano artist performing live....

        • Group of friends
          8.0

          It had a fantastic location in Yosemite Park and was also full of character.

          They only seemed to have double rooms but not twin ones. With our room we had to go through the lounge/lobby to get to the toilets and showers.

        • Group of friends
          5.8

          We enjoyed the ambience of the hotel and Tom Bopp who performed on the piano Tuesday evening and presented a slide show. Buffet breakfast was good.

          We were not able to upgrade from one room/one bed and our bathroom/shower was down 20 flights of stairs - not good for someone with bursitus and her 90 year old friend. The desk clerk did what they could for us but were not able to offer a bathroom on the same floor that would work for us.

          I liked the proximity to Yosemite sightseeing and I loved the piano player -- he was incredible.

          the room was stuffy

        • Single

          Superb location (but still 1h drive from Yosemite village), very friendly staff, beautiful building

        • Older travelers
          5.8

          The staff was upbeat, friendly and aimed to please.

          I was not told about the sharing of restrooms, which is a problem due to a medical condition. I found it abhorrent to omit that information. The free breakfast was nice, but poor quality of food; though, again, the service was great. There was no heat control in the room, walls were paper thin and you could hear everything, so light sleepers should not apply. Also, the fact that towels are not in the restrooms would be helpful to know prior to going there- it should be stated clearly at check-in.

          The area was great. Breakfast good.

          It was lacking in some amenities such as internet access however they do say this. When I arrived they did not have a copy of my booking or could find it any where. In the end I had to get a more expensive room as that was all that was available.

          Great breakfast. Room was tiny for the price but hey, we had fun.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          I loved the fireplace in the lobby. We enjoyed the pianist as well.

          I wish there was another restaurant that wasn't as expensive

        • Older travelers

          The setting and the staff ensured a wonderful holiday for our family.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          The historical aspect of the hotel and the charm it possesses. The staff were friendly and very helpful.

          The shared toilet and shower facilities and the fact that you had to walk outside in the bitter cold to go the bathroom and restrooms especially since it snowed heavily and rained while we were there so this was a little uncomfortable.

        • Family with children

          The location of the Wawona in Yosemiti is great!

          Rooms are very simple without toilet and bathroom in your room.

          My husband and I loved the quiet location of Wawona Hotel compaired to the busy environment of the other accommodation options located in Yosemite Valley. The old world charm of Wawona and friendly staff made it perfect. It was our 1st time ever in Yosemite and being Australian we had travelled a long way to see it. We certainly could have stayed longer at Wawona. Our room was clean and comfortable and all the meals we had at the resturant were very satisfying. It will remain a lovely memory for us and we hope one day to visit again.

        • Older travelers

          I liked the feeling of the hotel. It is over 100 years old, but that comes with problems. I enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. It was outstanding.

          It is what it is- you choose to stay at Wawona, you know you will be sharing a bathroom/shower situation and that old rooms mean no airconditioning, no internet connectivity- okey dokey. But the staff was my complaint- why rev up our room by telling us we have a private balcony only to find we share it with 4 rollaways covered in a sheet? Why leave earplugs in the room without a warning- "at Yosemite National Park, the garbage man comes at 5:30". While waiting for the breakfast to open at 7 am, because we were surely wide awake- staff complained openly to waiting customers that they had a huge party coming in for lunch and they were delayed on breakfast as they tried to reach extra help on the phone. Unprofessional to have them tell us that if someone didn't show up because they were needed, they would be fired. We're just hoping you'll put the grits on the table and let us in. Finally, the fellow who took our keys on checkout acted like it was a criminal offence to ask for a souvenier from the glass case. He did not want to sell it to me, couldn't be bothered. I waffled and asked when the gift shop opened, and he said seven. As we drove out, the gift shop was closed, not to open until 8. Beautiful hotel that left me with a sad experience. Sorry Wawona.

          Lovely verandah, overlooking Yosemite National Park

          Despite having the window open overnight, the room was very warm (and quite small). Didn't sleep well.
