Nice hotel in center of town on way to Yosemite. All the restaurants and shops are within walking distance. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful. The room was fine for a family of 4 - two adults & two teenagers. Overall, it was a good value. Although , the refrigerator was not working. The staff fixed the problem while... More

It is about an hour drive to the park, but the prices are good and the staff are friendly. We needed two double beds and our room was in the back corner near the gazebo. It was great for the two nights we were there.

Great place to stay It was clean and staff was really friendly. They helped us with places to eat and the rooms were really big and clean. The office is open 24/7 which was great when you come late from yosemite. A bit expensive though

Mariposa is approximately 4 hours drive East of San Francisco and approx 40 miles outside the main Yosemite Village. The town itself is very quaint with a great selection of diners and restaurants for its size. Everyone we met was very polite and it was a real pleasure to stay in Mariposa on our two day trip to Yosemite. The... More

Pleasant, cosy place, not too far from Yosemite. We used the pool late in the evening, very nice too. Nice, clean room. Besides that, we had a great dinner and a superb brunch in Mariposa! Check out the restaurants!

This is a basic but clean mom and pop style roadside motel from the 1950s. The rooms are basic. The parking lot is small. You can walk to restaurants and stores. For a night or two this will do but if you plan to stay and explore Yosemite for a longer period, you may want to find a place closer... More

We liked this little motel very much. We wanted someplace close to the Sequoia forest and Yosemite, without the cost of staying in the park. We stayed the first week of July just before the 4th and it was high season. The room was large, clean and private. It had lots of places to put away clothes and a large... More

After trying to get reservations at the hotel in the Park for months, we chose this as an alternative sue to the TA reviews - we stayed 2 nights. When I first checked in and saw the room, I was a bit taken aback. Air was off and it had a stale smell. Door was not completely closed, or locked,... More

One of those places where you can't complain. Of course, at $180+ per night during high season, this isn't exactly great value but the beds were comfortable, check in/ out were a breeze, and the AC was powerful. The amenities were more like a motel but the location to Yosemite is great (especially if you're booking a last minute trip... More
