“Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Stayed for one night at this big hotel.
Before our Yosemite tour we checked on MANY hotels near and far from the park entrances, but this one was by far the most reasonably priced compared to nearness to entrance.
The hotel itself is OK - nothing special, nice big room, colors and interiors maybe a little outdated, but absolutely in good shape and clean and quiet.
Breakfast in a separate building was OK - again - nothing special, but OK.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

Enjoyed the comfortable foam mattress and close location to Yosemite, Mariposa Grove. The room furnishing was kinda outdated and tacky looking. Parking was free and there were microwave and mini fridge in the room. In room wifi Internet was good and working well, which was great for me. However, we were not aware nor informed that the complementary breakfast was only till 9.30am, even though it stated that breakfast was served till 11am. From 9.30am onwards, they served a menu breakfast which u need to pay. We ended up ordering some pancakes, sausages, eggs and cereals. The pancakes were soggy. Not impressed with the food and not worth the money even though there was a 20% discount.

This hotel is nice. Staff is friendly. Breakfast was good. This is a small town and restruants close early in October. Yosemite was well worth seeing. Take the tram to see the trees ($26) in Mariposa and well worth the money. The tempature changes alot wear layed clothing.

Room Tip: No elevator. Ask for 1st floor if you have troubling with steps. Had coffee pot & frig.

The hotel is divided into buildings and not concentrated under one structure. The room we got was huge, 2 bedrooms with a clip in between. Balcony facing the beautiful garden and breakfast minimal but sufficient.

we stayed here for 2 nights in a room overlooking the swimming pool. The room was large, 2 very comfortable beds, spotlessly clean and everything worked. Hi Speed internet throughout the hotel was great, especially for skype.

We ate in the restaurant one night, the food was pretty good, service was a bit amateurish but it was entertaining. Decor in the dining room was dated and a bit shabby but OK.

Room Tip: the laundry was busy and noisy, avoid rooms near to the laundry

This best western was big with lots of amenities. The rooms were clean with somewhat dated decor, but everything worked fine and there was a fridge and microwave as well. The desk staff were not particularly friendly, but not rude, ether. The location is great for going to Yosemite, and we also went to Kings Canyon one day of our three there. I would recommend staying at the hotel - but skip the restaurant. Our first night we had dinner there, it took forever to get a simple sandwich and salad. The waitress was nice, but unapologetic, saying that the hotel was full so they were busy. We tried the breakfast the next day. Food was ice cold, very little selection - just awful. Oakhurst is a bit of an odd town. There are very few restaurants open after nine, and there don't seem to be any other than chains or pizza joints. As one other reviewer noted - hit thte grocery store for supplies and you'll be fine. the value for the price was good.

On a recent trip to yosemite we stayed two nights at the Gateway Inn. The hotel is older, but is well maintained. The rooms are huge. The bathroom vanity was very long, easily accomodating all of the "stuff" my wife brings along, plus all of mine too. The hotel is a bit different in that you check in a very nicely appointed lobby building, then you are assigned a room in one of the many buildings spread randomly across the forested hillside. Because of this design, the hotel blends easily into the beautiful landscape. The attached restaurant lunch and dinner food was very good and the breakfast buffet included eggs and a breakfast meat, plus all of the other things you would expect on a breakfast buffet. Your pool choice includes an indoor and an outdoor pool. We had arranged an all day tour with Discover Yosemite and they promptly picked us up at the front door and returned us to the hotel lobby at the end of the tour. This is an easy way to see yosemite if you only have one day. If you drive it, you are about 20 minutes from the park entrance. That makes this hotel one of the closest to the park. In short, if I'm ever again in this area, I will stay at the Gateway Inn and would not hesitate to recommend that you do the same.
