The hotel parking is poor. You can't park close to your room. The parking lot was blocked off for tour buses. The parking lot is very dark. The room was out dated. It was hard to believe this was a Best Western Plus.

My family stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Yosemite.. We had a suite, which was very clean and had tons of room for my 3 teenagers. Beds were comfortable, but the AC would go on and off during the night. The parking was easy and the on site restaurant was great for breakfast (free)! Used the workout room several... More

Great place! Not close to Yosemite but certainly a much better value than a park hotel. The suite is huge, apartment huge! Onsite restaurant is convenient. Parking is easy. Pool is nice but jets were broken on hot tub. Stuff happens though... Family loved coming back here after a day of adventure. Pretty quiet here but some rooms are next... More

Clean, and comfortable. The room is large, and also has a surprising balcony. The service people are nice and professional. They even provide a free pass for yosemite visitors. The restaurant provides good breakfast, though the dinner is so-so.

The hotel is standard Best Western - if you see one, you see all of them. As I heard at the reception, many people choose it for their Yosemite trip. DO NOT! It is too far - if you want to go to Yosemite Valley, it will take you 2 hours one way, to Glacier Point it will be 3... More

Our 3.5 Diamond hotel is 1 hour from Yosemite National park and 1.5 hours from Yosemite Valley. These facts are available of many travel sites. Yosemite National Park is part of our county. Thousands of guests every year stay at our hotel to enjoy the park and valley. You can stay in the valley; feel free to review those accommodations... More

Great location, exceptional service from the staff, vastly exceeded our expectations. Restaurant service was quick and friendly. Toni at the front desk gave us directions to local attractions and local events. Melissa in the maintenance det went well beyond her job to help us with a disabled car. The staff treats you like family!

Large, clean room nicely equipped. Friendly staff on check-in. Made-to-order breakfast at the cafe next door. Very pleased with my choice. We used the hotel as a waypoint on route to Yosemite. It worked well. The motel is also served by YARTS which is regional transit system that would take you into Yosemite and is greener option.

We are happy that you enjoyed the served full breakfast at the popular on-site restaurant, The Pine Tree. A nice change of the ordinary “buffet breakfast”. The YARTS bus stops right in front of the hotel. I just brought by family on that bus to Yosemite Valley. It takes about 45 minutes longer, but you do not have to drive,... More

Big room with all usual facilities. Nice pool. Hotel is a several miles from town, and there is not much in the immediate location. However, the on-site Diner proved to be very good for both breakfast (complimentary) and evening meals.

After reading your review, I felt like taking a night off and staying in my own hotel! A great review!

We stayed in the 'fireplace' suite. The room was large and cozy. The sliding back door opened onto a small patio with a table and chairs with a partial view of the wooded area and a cobblestone walkway. The room had a large sitting area with full size sofa facing a lovely stone fireplace. In the evening we turned on... More
