Clean room, comfortable bed, soft towels, friendly staff. They have a pool. Nice restaurant near by. Price is affordable. We've paid around $130 for Saturday night. Next time we will stay there again.

We got a last minute room on expedia and it turned out great. We had snow the night we stayed there. Very cozy place, helpful staff. Great location, very close to the entrance of the park. I would stay there again.

Picked this place for our recent stay in Yosemite based on positive TripAdvisor reviews and am glad we did. Yes, it's a bit of a drive into the Valley (12 miles to west entrance of the park and then maybe another 20 or so to the valley floor) - might be about 45 minutes to an hour but wow, so... More

The hotel was perfect for us after hiking all day in Yosemite National Park. The price was right and the location was not too far from the park. The rooms were large and had a nice big fridge for our water/snacks that we brought to the park with us each day. They do have free wi-fi, however the signal was... More

This place was just the right spot for us,12 miles outside the park. It was easy to access and a comfortable place to relax after a day of hiking and exploring. The restaurant next door had good affordable food and a family atmosphere for those traveling with children. The room was clean and spacious.

This hotel in the Stanislaus Forest is excellent for visiting Yosemite National Park if you don't want to be in the pricey or primitive hotels in the park itself. The rooms are large and so is the bathroom. Beds are OK with a good mattress. Fridge and microwave. The open pool is heated also in the spring (probably also winter).... More

With its price, the location is quite good. It only takes one hour to drive to Yosemite Valley. The room is modern and comfortable, but I hope they could provide better coffee. You can order a pizza from the hotel and they would deliver it to your door. It's very convenient after an all-day long hike.

Dear Tai, We’re glad you appreciated that Yosemite Westgate Lodge is the most modern lodging facility on Highway 120. I myself can’t start my day without a few good cups of coffee, and admit I have not tried the packages here. I think I will brew a cup today, so I can know exactly what you mean. The Pizza Factory...

My wife and I stayed here in March, and...well, she's generally a prissy-pants about hotels---really fussy about cleanliness and such---and she and I were pleasantly surprised by the top quality room. It was clean, the interior decoration was tasteful. And, since we stayed during the off-season, the rates were very reasonable. We would definitely stay here again!

We stayed at this lodge for two nights, when visiting Yosemite national park. The room was great and it looked like it was just recently renovated. Since it was February, the place was quite empty which was nice. You can get groceries and find a place for dinner at the 15 min drive Groveland near by. From the lodge you... More
