We stayed at this Comfort Inn September 2013. The hotel is older, park at the door spread across a couple of buildings. The staff was friendly. The rooms had a flat screen TV, but no refrigerator. The town was in walking distance, as were a few small local restaurants. The town is located about an hour from Yosemite, and although... More

Thank you for your comments. Yes, lodging at Comfort Inn Yosemite Valley Gateway is more economical than properties within and directly outside Yosemite National Park. We offer value --just 32 beautiful miles from the West Park Entrance, clean, comfortable rooms, deluxe breakfast buffet and WiFi included. Now you know that Mariposa is a great place! Come on back!!

I was there with couple of my friends visiting Yosemite. Staff was very friendly, and the rooms were excellent. Nice location as well, on top of the hill overlooking the town of mariposa. Lots of nice restuarants to eat around. The breakfast had lot of variety and is excellent. Great Value for money.

Location is convenient and interesting drive to Yosemite. Staff was very helpful in finding local eating establishments and were knowledgeable about park. Rooms were clean but older design with limited parking. Breakfast was good.

This motel is located at the top of a hill overlooking the quaint town of Mariposa. The management is very helpful and welcoming upon our arrival. It is a two block walk to town but is pretty steep for the elderly. Best to take the car if you have physical handicaps. We would return for a night away from the... More

Stayed for one night only upon exiting Yosemite National Park. Jo on reception was very welcoming and suggestive with places in the local area to go out for a drink and decent meal. The room was comfortable with fast wifi and string heater. Couldn't use it during the night though as it was extremely loud! One suggestion would be to... More

Had a last minute reschedule at Yosemite Park because of the wildfires and was lucky to come across this hotel. Very accommodating staff that went out of their way to make arrangements for our group. Suites were clean and well maintained, and throwing in breakfast was great.

If you haven't booked anything around Yosemity, you can still find a room in this place! Very clean and friendly stuff, not expensive although you pay for what you get (one night only to get some sleep before entering Yosemity)
