The Yosemite Lodge at the Falls (formerly "Yosemite Lodge", often known colloquially in Yosemite as simply "The Lodge") is a lodging accommodation, in western Yosemite Village, Yosemite Valley, Yosemite National Park, Mariposa County, California, located at 9006 Yosemite Lodge Drive.[1]

The Lodge is one of only two lodging options in the valley that encompasses only hotel rooms. The other is the Ahwahnee Hotel, and the two establishments compete for the large patronage that visitors to the park offer. While the Ahwahnee is the more high-scale of the two hotels, Yosemite Lodge is much less expensive and has a cozy, ski-lodge type atmosphere. Yosemite Lodge was renamed "Yosemite Lodge at the Falls" in the mid-2000s due to its location very close to Yosemite Falls.

Delaware North Parks and Resorts' 1992 winning bid for primary concessions led to the company's eventual acquisition of the management of Yosemite Lodge.

The Lodge has a total of 249 rooms. It is composed of 226 "lodge rooms", 19 "standard rooms", and 4 "family rooms."[2]

Instead of having every room in a single building, the rooms are spread out over a total of 15 separate buildings, each with anywhere from nine to thirty-six rooms. The Cedar Building is the only one of these buildings to contain the standard and family rooms. Each building has different decor and a different layout; some have exterior corridors, some have interior ones. The buildings are named after species of flowers or trees.

189 cabins and 108 hotel rooms were destroyed or badly damaged by the January 1997 flooding of the Merced River, which runs near the Lodge, meaning the Lodge had 546 rooms/cabins before the flooding and that 54% of lodging was ravaged.[3][4]
