Motel is set on a large property including pools and a gym. Rooms are extremely dated - we had a 'family unit' which consisted of a double bed in one room, and another room with two doubles. Rooms were separated by an equally-dated bathroom. Rooms have old TVs, but come with free wi-fi. The decor and linens within the room... More

We just stayed there 2 nights for Memorial Day Weekend. The Tall Trees, and Deer roaming the upper end of property in the early mornings are special effects no other hotel nearby can match. After a long day in Yosemite, the Indoor Hot Tub, and Pool were very comforting to my feet. My aches and pains went away, and help... More

Stayed here overnite so we could finish up our tour of Yosemite. Oakhurst is probably the best location outside the park for a return trip. Took us about 35 minutes to get back the next morning. Even though it's right on the main highway, didn't really hear any noise. The hotel rooms are secluded amongst trees so it's buffered somewhat.... More

We stayed in Oakhurst for two nights because of the proximity to Mariposa Grove and the Yosemite N.P. The Gateway Inn is located in the middle of town, so you can walk to the restaurants if you don't want to eat in the hotel's own dig. This is good for the hot breakfast there which offers enough space even for... More

We had a wonderful stay hear while visiting Yosemite NP. We spent 5 nights here and would recommend it to anyone who's going to be in the area. Yosemite's south entrance is 16 miles. There is a Von's and Raley's grocery store within a mile along with a CVS and Rite-Aid drug stores. Fast food and a few restaurants in... More

We love to stay here anytime we are near. On historic hwy 49 & near the south entrance to Yosemite. Rooms are large & are spread on a small hill giving character to the rooms. Situated among oak trees & other thick vegetation. Its rustic but could use a little updating.

After a day walking in Yosemite, we arrived at this hotel. Excellent to rest, Nice place in the mountains, with plenty of facilities and very peaceful. The rooms are big and clean and have a very nice balcony to see the sunrise. The breakfast could be better. I would definitely repeat.

The Best western Yosemite Gateway Inn is located a few miles outside the southern entrance to Yosemite National Park. Location is its best feature, with easy access to Yosemite and the Sierra National Forest. The grounds are interesting, as is the layout of the hotel itself. The staff was helpful and let me store my luggage for a week without... More

I think Best Western has a certain reputation and it's not always fair. Some properties actually are quite good. I was pretty disappointed in this location, especially after reading the positive reviews. Check in was fine. Good service. The room was so-so but we had a spider issue. I'm assuming it is the climate, but couldn't the cleaning staff take... More

We booked this room months ago and upon arrival realized that we were on the second floor and had to lug our huge suitcases up the outside steps.. Okay, no big deal but I didn't see any photos of this or any sort of description of this on the website, only the beautiful lobby and some of the updated rooms..... More
