The hotel was nicely organized with a nice exterior area. The furniture was a little dated but the bed was very comfortable and the room itself did not suffer from the dated furniture. However, we were surprised when we opened the patio slider to find that the patio doors to all rooms opened onto a common balcony. It was interesting,... More

This hotel is tired but clean enough. My only complaint is that the coffee is not complementary. It should be. The coffee at the restaurant on site sucks. Should have had the crappy room coffee instead. Recommend the cute Southgate brewing Co for dinner. Small atmosphere with good burgers and upscale other foods.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Yosemite. It was perfect for us! The room was clean and spacious and we especially enjoyed hanging out on the balcony just outside the room. The grounds are full of beautiful trees and plants that are well maintained providing a natural relaxing setting. We highly recommend this hotel and... More

Spent 4 days here to see the park and surrounding area sights. Staff was very accomodating and helpful. We had a room with 3 queen beds and a nice view in building 4, room 409. The room could use some touch up but given the location and price was hard to beat.

The hotel rooms are spread out over a large hill so if you have trouble walking ask for a room closer to the main street. Be prepared to PAY for breakfast at this BW PLUS unit. OK, you get 25% off the food total but I expect a PLUS hotel to include breakfast.

Great hotel for the money outside of Yosemite. This is a good place to stay because it's close to the park and this entrance is quite as popular, so traffic is less. The room was nice and much bigger than expected with a microwave, fridge and sink. It's great for families and a good base camp for the park. There... More

This is the second time we’ve stayed at this hotel and we weren’t disappointed. Our room was spacious, clean and despite what some of the other reviews say we found the decor and furnishings to be excellent. Wi-fi was quick and dependable too. As it’s name suggests it’s an ideal location as a Gateway to Yosemite but it’s a 1.5hr... More

We chose this motel as it was accessible to Yosemite National Park, without the very high rates in and very near the park. The accommodations were very nice. The motel appears to have been maybe been badged with another name originally? The art work painted on the wall above the bed was way upscale for a Best Western. Mini fridge,... More

Often difficult to decide on a hotel when visiting a US National park. Our experience of the "official" provider's at other parks hasn't been great and you often have to book a year in advance for something that puts a new slant on the word "authentic". So an official provider was out. . . Looking around we read the reviews... More

This was a wonderful place to stay, looks like it totally belongs in the mountains. People are friendly and gives you plenty of space. they have a restaurant on property and it has a nice selection of food to choose from. The breakfast you receive a discount if staying at the hotel. Wonderful place to stay.
