Overpriced, but the hotel is clean, and has great staff. Plus is 45min from Yosemite which makes it convenient place to stay. There is also public transportation ( YARTS ) that takes you to the national park, if you don’t feel like driving you could take the bus. mariposa town had a nice old town which makes this hotel perfect stay since it is walking distance to the town and transportation to Yosemite.

Very comfortable room. Quiet, considering it was full. The pool is outdoors. The breakfast room is across the parking lot from the main hotel but very close and the food was great. Mariposa is a neat town with good food and drink.

My friends and I stayed at this location while visiting Yosemite. I liked the close proximity and the town of Mariposa. The hotel was well maintained and so were the rooms. The beds and pillows were average for a "budget" hotel. Beverly was very helpful and friendly regarding our check-in and allowed us to get into our rooms early. The breakfast spread was actually pretty impressive and offered many different options. The gym equipment needed to be serviced and there were no cleaning towels or regular towels, which was very unsanitary. The biggest issue I experienced was the huge mosquito and gnat problem in my room. They were on the ceiling, the wall, and the bed. Being in a wilderness area, I expected there to be a few but not that many and especially not in the room. What I really disliked was how the Front Desk and Housekeeping Managers handled the situation when I talked to them. First i was told, well they are just gnats and that they get into the room every time the door is opened. I explained that having one or two in the room would make sense but not that many. Next I was told that it was my fault for leaving the door open and that I should close it immediately after I enter the room. Although we were visiting Yosemite, that doesn't mean we are outdoors people. We had no reason to keep the door open for any longer than walking in or out of the room, which we kept to a minimum anyway. Next they had the Housekeeping Manager walk me up to my room to examine the bugs (I guess the pictures I took of the room weren't enough). She then tried to use the same spiel of the bugs entering the room when I opened the door. It wasn't until I mentioned bug just don't bum rush an open door that she finally admitted to the housekeepers leaving the doors open the entire time the rooms are being serviced. We then had to walk back to the front desk for them to rectify the situation. I felt the situation could have been handled better and not just brushed off as a minimal problem because we were in the wilderness.

Clean, friendly staff, nice rooms, full breakfast. Gotta say that this felt more like a slightly better Best Western, not quite a Best Western Plus. We had just stayed at a Best Western Plus in Vegas a few nights before and that one seemed a little more extra, if that makes sense. However, you are in Mariposa about an hour through the Arch Rock entrance to Yosemite.
