Got Buck Meadows after I couldn’t find anything closer to the Park. It pleasantly surprised me in how well kept and maintained it is. Their local restaurant Lucky Buck had amazing food, which was what we needed after a strenuous mist trail hike. Highly recommended.
Buck Meadows was exactly- even better- than pictured. Perfect location, added amenities, huge space, clean, quiet. Not sure why some other reviews complained about noise but we didn’t experience any. We would definitely stay again and recommend.
I was looking for basic accommodation before a backpacking trip in Yosemite and this fit the bill. However, I was pleasantly surprised that it was a cut above what I was expecting when I booked and when I got my initial view of the place. It looks very rustic from the outside but the furnishings have been updated and everything looked really nice. The furniture and builtins have a coodinated look and everything was clean and fresh. It had a small fridge but the taller size, not the square mini-fridge. Wifi was decent, perhaps a little slow in the evening, but adequate. We swam in the pool at their adjacent property and it was lovely in the heat of the afternoon. It was very convenient to have the Lucky Buck restaurant on site and they were open early for breakfast, as well as serving lunch and dinner. I would stay there again.…
The room was very nice. plenty of towels. Nice and quite room. The Hotel staff was excellent. My daughter enjoyed the pool . Plenty of lounge chairs for the guests. Parking in front of room a plus. Great restaurant next door.
Plenty of clean towels and comfortable bed. Refrigerator and Microwave in room with Direct TV. The heater and air conditioning are a little loud. I stayed in the single story unit. Next time I will try the two story.
We actually ended up staying at the property next door due to an issue with a power outage (both properties were the same owners). The room was clean and very large. The hotel was very nice, with great amenities. Having a laundry room was handy and the pool was nice. It was a beautiful location and so close to the park.
This hotel was surprisingly affordable being so close to the park entrance. The rooms are clean and up to date. Hotel staff is extremely helpful and all have a positive attitude. The hotel is very close to Yosemite Park entrance so you can sleep a little longer in the morning.
Power went out for over 4 hours in early evening on our second night, while the adjacent sister hotel had a generator and full power. Room had mildew odor. Asked for reduced price for night, manager said if you leave now, you get credit, but no discount for not having power. Restaurant also lost power, just as we were served. Had at least 50 cars stop and leave over the next few hours. Bummer for the employees since food was great. Step it up owner!
Recently remodeled rooms are very very clean. Bed mattress is standard hotel model and could use an upgrade. But, the room price was the lowest in the area. So, I still can not complain. The American style diner next door was super good with a friendly staff and high quality diner food. The location to the Yosemite north gate is almost the best in the area.
We stayed here the night before our sunrise engagement photo shoot in Yosemite. We needed an iron/ironing board as that was listed as an amenity on their website. When we arrived, I couldn't find it anywhere in the room. When I called the front desk, all I got was "It should be there, I don't know what to tell you". Ok?? I asked if I can get a replacement from another room as they own both Buck Meadows Lodge and Yosemite Westgate Lodge. All I got was "I can't help you". Very disappointed as I thought this was a great location outside of the park! We ended up having to change our outfits because of this and it was such a bummer.
