This place was newly renovated and felt so clean and safe. Exterior doors and outside checkin also made us feel comfortable. Attractive rooms (nothing fancy) with easy to clean surfaces and clean bedding so we felt very safe. We appreciated the microwave and refrigerator that even had a small freezer. With some food from home and some bowls and utensils we were able to enjoy eating out on the picnic tables. We also find thew if connection perfectly adequate. A couple things to note- you can hear your neighbors but everyone went to bed by 10 as I think we all were tired from our days out. Observing quiet hours would be important here. It is a 40 minute drive to Yosemite Valley and like almost all the roads around here, a curvy drive. However, this place felt worth the drive to us.

We stayed a night during a trip to Yosemite. Very clean, very comfortable, staff were very accommodating during check-in and the lodge has a great open area to chill out in the evening, with lights, a pool, swings, corn-hole, and plenty of tables and chairs to relax and enjoy the evening. Rooms have a mini fridge, microwave and a Keurig. Location to Yosemite was great, 20 minutes closer than Groveland, and the closet accommodation outside Yosemite’s west entrance, other than Rush Creek Lodge, which is more upmarket and double the cost. Thoroughly recommend this lodge.

Room was clean and comfortable. I really liked that there was no carpeting in the room, hard floor. Bed was relatively comfortable. Parking was convenient. Wifi was very slow. Restaurant next door was quite good.

We stayed here for three nights and had a very nice time. The room was quite modern and nice, I read in some other reviews they have had renovations done and I think they’ve done a really good job. Good location, not far from park entrance but did take us about 1 hour to drive to most places we wanted to go to (eg half dome area). There is a gas station with small convenience store about five mins away towards the park. Usually there would be another town about 15 mins west but it was evacuated due to fires. This also meant that the restaurant onsite was closed as it’s power was out due to the fire I think but obviously that’s no ones fault and I hope no one in the nearby fire loses homes! It was a nice pool area for relaxing, hot tub closed due to covid, and also nice areas to sit outside and eat (although I wish the pretty fairy lights turned on a bit earlier!) My only complaint would be that the floors of our room were quite dirty (room 304). If you walked around for 5 mins the bottoms of your feet would be black and covered in bits of dirt. I don’t think it had been vacuumed which I would assume would be standard. But they probably also need a good mop due to the amount of dirt on the ground. We had to have a towel to clean our feet before getting onto the bed etc. But overall a great spot!

Akkapo: Thank you for leaving us such a candid review of your stay at Yosemite Westgate Lodge. I am happy that you enjoyed your three nights stay here at Yosemite. It makes us happy to know that you liked our recently modeled rooms. Our staff works hard to offer clean and comfortable rooms for guests. Also, our hotel location keeps close to the top attractions and we’re located only 12 miles from the west entrance of the park. However, I am very sorry if you encountered floors that may have needed some additional cleaning--we just installed new floors and have been testing new cleaning supplies and mops so I am sorry that you ran into these issues. We will look into the feedback you provided regarding the floors. Otherwise, I’m glad to know that you felt our accommodations were great. We are looking forward to hosting you again on your next visit to Yosemite. Remember to book your stay directly on YosemiteWestgate.com where you will find the lowest rates anywhere online. Thank you for staying at Yosemite Westgate Lodge! Best Regards, General Manager Yosemite Westgate Lodge

It’s always nice to find a gem. The location is really close to Yosemite National Park. Our room was super clean and spacious! My family loved this place. I asked the lady at the front desk if we can get a bottom floor for my Mom- she was very accommodating. The Lucky Buck Cafe next door offers a variety of good food.. only steps away from Yosemite Westgate. A few tips: Buy everything you need before checking in. Mar-Val Store is pretty much their Safeway. This is at Main St. Groveland which is about 15 minutes BEFORE YOSEMITE WESTGATE. There is also a General Store near the Lodge but they close early. Restaurant closes @ 9PM. You need to come early so you don’t have to wait longer to be seated. Rooms are cold. If cold is not your best friend- I suggest you bring a hoodie. The Lodge is about 20 minutes to the entrance. MAKE SURE YOU PURCHASE YOUR YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK TICKETS 48 hours prior to your visit. Tickets go on sale @7am and will literally be sold out at 7:10am. Make sure you register @ recreation.org ahead of time. Enjoy your time!!!!
