Ideal for Yosemite with great rooms at reasonable prices. Tame dear roam the grounds. Adjoining restaurant serves good food and offers 25% discount on breakfast menu. Delightful staff at the desk and around the hotel.

Walked into the lobby and immediately loved this place. Wonderful service, large clean rooms comfy beds and perfect location.

Passed this Best Western on way to the National Park and made a reservation over the phone with a very kind young lady. After... More

Stayed at this BW for two nights as our base for visiting Yosemite. While it is about an hour from the Southern entrance to the Park, it is a pretty drive. Bass Lake is nearby too. This is a fairly large property with over 122 rooms including two bedroom family suites, an indoor pool and spa and an outdoor pool,... More

We stayed here in August 2013 while visiting Yosemite. It was the only place we could find that would fit us all in one room with enough beds for everyone. Our family room was all the way in the back at the top of the hill. It was literally the last building at the top right next to the playground.... More

Very nice place and a great rate too! Very friendly staff. We had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant and the food excellent. The pool and spa were in a very cool location with lots of trees. Relaxing I hope we get a chance to visit again!

What a beautiful hotel this was! The rooms were clean and well appointed, the staff was helpful, the property was lovely, the amenities were excellent and all for less than $100. We requested a room toward the back on the second floor. It had a balcony overlooking a quiet, wooded area. The staff was very helpful considering it was the... More

This was a modern hotel with a beautiful lobby, very large,spotless rooms with extremely comfortable beds, kitchenette, and large bathroom. The staff could not more friendly or helpful providing precise information for our entry and exploration of Yosemite Natl Park the next... More

Spent two nights at this property. We had a King room with a view of the pool outside our sliding glass door. There were chairs and a table outside our room, which we enjoyed with a glass of wine after a long day in the park. The room was nice (could use a little updating) but was adequate for our... More
