Room was very good. No facilities available though, for breakfast or dinner, so needed to travel to find both of these - not an issue. Quiet environment, despite a fair number of people staying (in the off season).

Dear Guest: I wanted to thank you for staying with us and taking the time to leave a review. Another thanks for the perfect score review. We are sorry, but when you stayed with us during the Winter, our on-site restaurant was closed for the season and our pool/spa was closed. We are not open for the Spring and all... More

Location is the best. Only 12 miles from Yosemite western gate. As a hotel itself, it is just Okay. Regular american standard motel. We did not try the next door restaurant. The room had a coffee maker, microwave oven and a small refrigerator. Bring some food and you will be just fine. There is a gas station next door and... More

It is conveniently close to the park and the rooms were clean. It is 20 min to get back to town for food. We were counting on the restaurant advertised as being next door. The website doesn't tell you that it is closed in the "off season". We also brought swimsuits for the advertised heated pool and jacuzzi, thinking that... More

Kris: Thank you for taking the time to leave a review about your stay at Westgate. I wanted to apologize for your experience and any miscommunication that our pool and on-site restaurant is seasonal. Our facilities are now all open and we'd love to get a second chance to show you all that Yosemite Westgate Lodge has to offer. We... More

Stayed there 2/20-22. Very friendly hotel staff. Very nice, large (King bed) clean room. A nicer room that one might expect in a remote place. Restaurant next door is seasonal, so know that (we already did). You have to go 12 miles to Groveland for restaurants, or do what we did and bring some food. Our room had a good... More

We spent two nights at this hotel, given its close proximity to the west entrance of the Yosemite National Park, it is extremely convenient. The hotel is newly remodeled, and very quiet. Hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We are completely satisfied, and will definitely come back again. It is the best value for the dollar. Highly recommended.

Stayed here on the way to Yosemite National park. We booked in advance. It was winter, so only a few rooms were rented. The place was very tidy outside, the room was clean, the bed comfortable. There is a pool outside. They are not pet friendly-my small dog had to sleep in the car with below freezing temperatures at night.... More

Dear Guest: I wanted to take the time to thank you for your review and address a couple of points. Yes, we are remotely located, which makes us a wonderful excursion. We have set up our property almost like a resort which is a getaway from the hustle and bustle of The City. While we offer a very modern facility... More

This is essentially a spiffed up motel. Would have been ok if the foreign receptionist-owners weren't so rude. Despite the address the motel is in the middle of nowhere - 12 miles from town (Groveland) and an hour from Yosemite. Consequently there's no where to eat nearby, especially in the off season and it become a pain to drive close... More

Perfect location for your visit to Yosemite. 30mins and your in the park. Hotel is simple but costs are reasonable. I would recommend for a night or 2 when visiting the park..... Hotel was quiet in December but was perfect.

We stayed here for 1 night in late January 2015. The room was kept very clean and the beds are very comfortable. There is no wifi provided and no cellular signals, so we were completely cut off from internet. To get to the gate of the park, it is about a 15 minutes drive. But once you cross the gate,... More

I purchased a groupon deal for 2-nights, and stayed here in January 2015. The room was a king-standard and very clean. It included a television with Direct-Tv. It was an overall pleasant stay. It's also very not crowded in January. It was a little disappointing that the connected restaurant was closed, so we had to go out to Groveland to... More
