Stayed here for four nights while hiking Yosemite and have absolutely no complaints! Clean, comfortable accommodations and some nice perks, too (fridge and microwave in the room)! Wifi worked great for us from our room, which is good because there is only a very faint Verizon signal and only in the parking lot. Staff is friendly, housekeeping is thorough, and...

While staying in San Francisco we decided on a trip to Yosemite. All the hotels in Yosemite were booked. We enjoyed staying at Americas Best Value Inn. It was very clean and comfortable. The grounds were well kept. Dinner at the restaurant next door was fair but there are not many places close by to eat. Only 30 minutes to...

The Westgate Lodge is a good place to stay, good sized rooms, very nice bathroom, helpful friendly staff, we had a problem wth the fridge but it was fixed in no time with no inconvenience, it's just a shame that it's some 40 mies from the valley centre and that the restaurant serving it next door is not good. That...

We traveled from San Francisco to Yosemite in June, and stayed at this hotel. It was a little over 3 hours from San Francisco, and then from the hotel, a 15-20 minute ride to the Yosemite gate (but plan on another 30+minutes to get to the canyon floor). It was a perfect spot for us to check-in, drop-off our stuff...

At first, I was hesitant to stay outside the park, but alas we waited too long to book our trip. We ended up at the Americas Best Value Inn and LOVED it. The amenities were nice, the pool was a great way to relax after a long day of walking, the location was about as close to the park as...

We stayed here for 5 nights on our recent road trip to the US. Everything in Yosemite is expensive so the cost is relative and yes, is expensive than other places in the US. The accommodation is clean, spacious and comfortable. Whilst you are quite a long way from the Yosemite Valley floor, the Valley floor is only a very...

Disappointed with our accommodation, we checked here for availability for the rest of our stay. We were told they had a beautiful room for us and it didn't disappoint. Clean, plenty of room, comfortable beds and bathroom and great service. And free wifi. Great place if you don't want to pay the in-park prices!

We stayed here in order to visit Yosemite Valley and surrounding areas. The accommodation was comfortable, two large queen beds in our room. The en-suite was well appointed, clean fluffy white towels every day. Pool and hot tub close by. Parking outside our room. Close enough to the valley for our daily trips, the views on the way there and...

I'll start out by saying that we were late to arrive -- pretty much everything in Yosemite takes a significant amount of time to get to -- but! When arriving at 11:45 pm, I basically had to fight my way into my room for my reservation, and the innkeepers would have been happy to send my daughter and I on...

A very spacious, comfortable room, clean, convenient, and efficient laundry facilities, an affordable restaurant next door with lots of tasty comfort food choices, and innkeepers who go out of their way to make your stay memorable make this a great almost-in-Yosemite choice! We arrived late with everything sold out on the first night of summer. Sharad and Bharti were so...
