Stayed in Cabin 19 - June 22-30, 2021. Cabin is behind hotel area, away from road and associated noise. Pleasant location. Cabin with full kitchen, separate bedroom and bath. Lots of hot water and good water pressure. We had a problem with the refrigerator the first couple of days and it was immediately replaced with a brand new unit. Cabin was very clean. We were there an entire week and enjoyed every day. Tioga entrance to Yosemite was 12 miles away, the Bodie Hills a short jaunt north on US-395. This was a great base for hiking in both locales. Highly recommended., and would re-book if visiting area again.
The Lake View Lodge turned out to be a great place to stay after our extended Yosemite trip. Lee Vining is a tiny town outside the east entrance to the park, and you never know what you will get in the gateway communities. The rooms were a decent size and clean, although could use additional inside lighting. It is clear that the proprietor invested a lot on outside landscaping. There are some nice areas on the property with tables and chairs to enjoy the high desert evenings. The onsite restaurant had a good menu with tables set up outside in a grassy area with tall trees. While it was probably set up for the pandemic I hope they keep the outside seating available. They are strict about their 4pm check-in time. We showed up a couple of hours early and had to come back later, which was a bummer because it was too hot outside to do much. We ended up driving the June Lake Loop a few miles down the road and found a nice brew pub to enjoy the time.…
Needed a place that was convenient to both Tenaya Lake & Mammoth so this town fit the bill. Room had everything you need….microwave, little refrigerator, hair dryer, steamer, ice, WiFi, basic toiletries, etc. Mattresses were comfortable, didn’t hear the neighbors, kept windows shut and didn’t hear any traffic of which you are very close to & slightly above 395. There is a new restaurant, The Basin, on the grounds that has very good food. Lots of outdoor sitting areas under the trees in the afternoon was pleasant. Right next door is a small grocery store. Several restaurants and coffee shops are a 5-10 minute walk. Walk 10-15 minutes to Mono Cone and get a soft serve swirl ice cream! 10 minute drive to Whoa Nellie Cafe which is attached to the Mobil gas station. Many people told us to stop there so we did. BIG and delicious burgers. Seared tuna sashimi was good not great as it was cooked a little too long. Lots of other choices. But you sure surprise people when you tell them you are at the Mobil station! Ha! Lake views were a little limited from our room. We were on the 2nd floor of the last building. We walked to the end of the building and could see some of the lake. Just a quick note. If you’re checking out motels in the area, the Lee Vining Motel, located very close by, was a victim of arson and won’t be operating for quite a while. So sad as it’s a historic building, tourist season was just starting after our crazy pandemic too. If you have time, walk around the area and check out some cute homes, churches, etc behind the motel. I needed some help from the front desk and each time I went they were friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.…
We knew going in that this was a dated motel and that was ok. I like to give pros and cons on a stay. Cons: Very very poor lighting in the room- husband had to use flashlight sitting and working at the table. Sink in the bathroom was ridiculously to hi. No extra bedding - only the sheet and one blanket. Pros: It looked pretty clean. The grounds was nice.
We stayed here for a long weekend of fishing, sightseeing and hiking over Summer 2020. This was our second stay in the last few years and have always been pleased with the rooms, staff and grounds. We had reserved room 50, the "Family Unit", for our most recent stay. At some point, the hotel combined two rooms to make one large unit that includes room for three queen-sized beds, two full baths, a kitchen and dining room. Plenty of room for six to eight people and more than enough for our family of four. We made good use of the kitchen and dining room and the room size gave us plenty of space to spread out and relax. The mattresses were great - I like them on the firm side - and there were plenty of pillows and blankets. Mattresses are very subjective so your results will vary. Housekeeping was only between guests rentals, not every day, but that wasn't a problem as a.) we knew about the policy and preferred less contact, and b.) we brought our own cleaning supplies. Lee Vining is a small town so be prepared for very few services. Using a room such as this or room 48-T (3-bed, 2-bath, modular home) is a good way to good. We bring our own groceries and kitchen supplies. I might recommend rooms away from the Office/Northside of the property as the north side has a common driveway with Mono Market and you will get a lot of vehicle noise.…
