Cedar Lodge, El Portal
Excellent4.0 / 5
We were a bit wary of the hotel as it had some poor reviews, but we found it clean, comfortable, and fairly convenient to Yosemite at a significantly better rate than others in Yosemite. The pools were great. Lovely to return from hot day hiking and wind down with a few relaxing lengths of the pool, and then the hot tub. The one significant annoyance was the lack of a free internet facility. There was also a significant premium on the price of gas at the nearest filling stations, so would advice topping up your tank at the likes of Merced, or other towns not so close to the park.

Good location for Yosemite
Hotel is ok but the location is good as its about 10 mins to the Yosemite park entrance. Great whitewater rafting, Zephyr, next door. Wifi is slow and you have to pay.

A good place for a couple of nights.
Hotel a little pricey for what you get and a little tired round the edges. But that is the price for the location next to Yosemite and great value compared to in-park (and fully booked months ago) hotels. Very happy with the choice.

Not good.
Quite depressing really. Lots of tourists crammed into rooms with no free wifi and no mobile reception. Glad to leave.
