We stayed here 1 night so we could get to Yosemite relatively quickly the next day and the TA reviews were ok. This isn't the sort of place we usually stay at - too big and impersonal - however this fit the bill for our purposes on this occasion. The pluses: Room was big and well appointed. Grounds are nicely... More

We stayed here during our visit to California. It was ideally situation being just 1 hour from Yosemite National Park. The room was fine, but quite dark and with some painting that looked like they came straight from the 1980's. We ate at the restaurant once for dinner, and had breakfast there because it was part of the package. Have... More

My wife and I stayed here during our honeymoon tour of California. The hotel is a great location for Yosemite. The rooms are a good size with good amenities and very quick free wifi. Food was also good at the restaurant. The only downside was we had a very noisy family above us. This made us realise how echoey the... More

We spend here two night on September when we visited Yosemite. Yosemite Valley is one hour drive away from hotel. Hotel was clean, pool area was nice and breakfast was ok. There was three computers and printer in lobby for use without any timelimits.

This BW+ is one the nicest that we’ve stayed at, and we’ve been to several across the country! Located outside of the South entrance to Yosemite NP, in the tiny town of Oakhurst California. The property is set up in different buildings of two and three stories each. The rooms are very spacious with a desk and great chair, lots... More

This summer I visited Central CA with my husband and we stopped in 4 different BW PLUS hotels. While the first were really PLUS and more, the other 2 weren’t. In particular YOSEMITE GATEWAY INN is a big anonymous inn. Also if the lobby is very nice, large, bright and well decor, our room was dark, with an old furniture... More

We stayed here at end of August on the last day of our Yosemite trip. The previous 2 nights we had stayed at the Blue Butterfly in El Portal (please see my review of their wonderful B'n'B!) as we found it much more convenient for accessing Yosemite Village (15 min v 1 hour from Oakhurst) and Tuolumne Meadows (45 min...

Beautifully designed grounds and use of the site. Breakfast was very good. Rooms were large quiet and the beds were comfortable. The lobby was very impressive. We don't stay at many Best Westerns, but this one is exceptional. Nice people at the desk. A good buy.

We stayed as a family of four in September. The room was adequate without being outstanding and the location is fine. The Reception was very helpful and we decided to go with Discover Yosemite tour rather than drive and it was excellent. The onsite restaurant was average and we used the Ol kettle Restaurant up the street for breakfast which... More
