Linens were scratchy and not comfortable. Beds were not comfortable. Gas fire stove created extremely dry air. The two bedroom villa with sofa bed lacked area for gathering setting how need was in common area.

Great property with lots of on-site activities for the whole family. Our kids loved the pool and the top-notch playground with the super-long slide, disk swing and zip lines. Fun crafts & activities available every day. We all enjoyed the rec room and played pool and shuffle board as a family. The staff was hit or miss. Some staff members were ultra-friendly while others were downright grumpy and/or seemed very inexperienced. I was surprised for the price of the room that it didn't get cleaned each day. Instead it was a "refresh" which entailed taking out the garbage and changing out towels. I felt like they could have made the bed. I'm not sure if it was due to Covid, but there was only one menu for the two restaurants and the food was waaaaay overpriced and mediocre at best. Even with these negatives, the overall experience was positive. Great property and facilities, and good location close to the park entrance. We would likely stay again but opt not to eat on site.

Rush Creek Lodge is in a great location which provides access not only to Yosemite Valley but to Hetch Hetchy and Tuolomne Meadow. I don't have any young kids anymore but it seems like it's a great place for families. Only two complaints - masks are not being required indoors and because the Lodge is remote the restaurant there is pretty much the only game in town - and it's pricey.

The room is clean. It would be great if they have a microwave in the room.
