We stayed here for one night and really like it. The lodge is 15' from groveland and an hour to the valley. The room is nice and clean with fridge and microwave. The restaurant is next door and thier breakfast is very decent. Overall it was a pleasant stay.

We booked a room for two nights in order to visit Yosemite National Park in early April. The hotel is about 15 minutes from the Park entrance. We arrived in the evening and check-in was a breeze since we booked online. The room was well maintained and clean, with lots of space

The hotel is only 15 min from Yosemite's gate and about 10 min from Groveland on Hwy 120. The adjacent restaurant does not open before April, so this was a little disappointment. Other than that, we don't regret our choice. The staff is very friendly and helpful; we were offered

When planning a visit to Yosemite from the Bay Area (so arriving via Hwy 120), we researched accommodation options thoroughly and decided that Buck Meadows Lodge looked like the best value based on a combination of quality, price, and proximity to the park. We booked through

Nice and quiet place with good and clean rooms in the reasonable driving distance from the park entrance. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a comfortable stay in Yosemite and doesn't want to spend a small fortune for renting rooms in Yosemite Village. Restaurant nearby is

I do not recall any public transportation being available at or near the Westgate Lodge. If I were you - I'd call the lodge directly and ask them what's available. Good Luck. - Ed

I don't think you will be able to work properly. The hotel where we stayed, did not have an internet connection. They will allow you to use their PC in the lobby but only for checking flights and email but can't surf. Hope this helps

what's the best way to see Yosemite in 1-2 day?
If you have only 1 day. drive the valley loop. short hike to lower Yosemite falls, short hike to mirror lake on the north side of the creek, visit Ahwahnee hotel. If you have 2 days, there are a number of other hikes that are excellent. If Tioga Pass road is open, it's a must see drive. Avoid July and August if you ca. It is a spectacular place to visit, no matter what time of the year.

what's the best way to see a lot of Yosemite during a 1-2 day visit?
To get the most on a short visit is to stay in the valley. The guided tour of the valley loop is fabulous. We also loved the bus service to hop around to several different stops in the valley.
