This is an older motel that could do with updating. The room had lots of space and was in good condition except for the carpeting which looked dirty and was stained. The bathroom was spacious and clean. Our room had a small shared porch on the back with a couple of chairs overlooking a small wooded area. The property has... More

The BEST WESTERN PLUS Yosemite Gateway Inn is quite a dated property which is most definitely showing its age. Rooms look old and quite tired and old. We opted out of eating there since the restaurant smelled old and very unwelcoming (there is a Denny's just down the road). The only thing which his hotel going for it is the... More

This hotel, while in a beautiful setting close to Yosemite's South Gate, is only average in every other way. The front desk staff didn't really know much about Yosemite, and seemed reluctant to answer questions. The on-site restaurant was WAY overpriced for what you got; the food was not very good and the portions were tiny. A plus was that... More

The room was clean but the bedsheet was not a fitted sheet so when you wake up no bedsheet underneath you. Bedsheet was so old not sure if it was clean. Can't these people afford new sheets without holes in it?

We found this property to be average in just about all categories. Close to the park, clean and appears to be well managed, but nothing special. Had breakfast here a couple of times, food and service good. Used the on site self service laundry, all OK.

This motel is located in Oakhurst which is about 8 miles from Bass Lake and about 1.5 hours from Yosemite Valley. The reception is cute but that is about it. The room we had transported us back to 1970. It smelled a bit but otherwise did the trick. It was a one night layover for our Half Dome hike in... More

We were told at check-in "Your using Best Western points?" Yes, we were. That's how I made the reservation, using points. We did not find out that we were 5,000 short of the points we needed until I received my credit card bill. Since we were short, they charged us the full room rate, without telling us!!! If I would...

The hotel is located outsided of Oakhurst, no chance to go downtown without car. Check-in was very busy, and for the receptionist, incoming phone calls seemed to be more important than the people who were waiting in front of her, which was annoying after the long drive we had that day. However, the suite we finally got was spacious and... More
