Let's start with "Friendly staff". We received a real welcome, not the standard "can we get your data and credit card" but the staff welcomed us, had a talk about our home and reason for visit and gave us some advice on a nice place to eat based on our wishes. The room itself (we had one with a king... More

Having come over from San Francisco we loved this place in comparison! Lovely spacious rooms, nicely decorated in a Yosemite theme, friendly staff and a pool to cool off in. It's about a 2 hour drive to Yosemite valley village but the drive itself is beautiful with plenty of places to stop and take in the scenery on the way... More

Loved this hotel. It was laid out like a resort. My room had a little patio with table & chairs. Enjoyed sitting out there with my glass of wine. Room was spacious & very well laid out. Had a frig & microwave. Everything was clean & the bed was great. The only downside was no breakfast like all BW I... More

We stayed here for one night as a pass-trough from San Francisco to Yosemite Park. This Inn is exactly as depicted on the website. A very stylisch lobby, completely in the spirit of Yosemite park. The room was very nice (although not really our style) with nice classic wooden furniture and beds. It had microwave, coffee, fridge and good free... More

We enjoyed the nice resort-like layout of the facility and our room had a ground level entry but on the hiss had an upstairs balcony overlooking well kept grounds. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed. Instead of an included breakfast, we received a 25% discount at the adjacent on-grounds restaurant.

We stayed at this facility for one night, and found the accommodation comfortable, and pleasant. The front desk service was excellent and helped us out with a few of our questions regarding nearby restaurants. You can tell they took pride in their establishment. Enjoyable visit.

The hotel is in need of renovations. The rooms are a bit dark and could use new soft goods. The area is just beautiful. The woman that checked us in was so very kind and friendly. When we went to the indoor pool in the evening, there weren't any towels, we called the front desk and they brought towels within... More

We needed a pet friendly hotel near the south entrance to Yosemite and the Best Western Gateway Inn popped up during our on line search. While a bit dated, after a full day of exploring Yosemite this hotel was just the thing. The hotel has a great location with relation to the south entrance to Yosemite and is clean and... More

Recently stayed here as it was freezing in San Francisco so left the city a little ahead of our schedule to find some sun and spend more time in Yosemite. So key things are the hotel is 14 miles from the south entrance to the park, and around 1 and a half hours from Yosemite Valley. We knew this so... More
