A good sized room with Fridge and Microwave. Be warned though there is no lift but only one flight of stairs. There is a pool and breakfast is included not a bad spread and the staff were really bubbly. The best thing about this hotel is its location just at tbe end of the Old Town Mariposa....Would recommend Bettes Golden... More

Am a loyal priority club member for another chain, but they weren't located near the Yosemite entrance. Booked this Best Western and was pleasantly surprised at how clean, and nicely situated on a hill it was. Loved that the indoor pool was right downstairs from our room. Will definitely stay at a Best Western again. I loved that the indoor... More

I was surprised by this hotel, the rooms are huge! It's about 30 minutes from Yosemite Valley, but be prepared for super curves/windy roads! We never got to check out the pool or restaurant. The rooms do have shared balconies which was nice.

We ate several times at the Yosemite Gateway Restaurant for Breakfast several days, we went to happy hour and dinner one night. The food was fantastic, out of this world! Very fresh, with a wonderful menu. We would highly recommend it. We spent most of our time in Yosemite Park and had limited time to spend looking for restaurants, it... More

Situated on a hillside in Oakhurst, one of the 'gateways' to Yosemite, this hotel is in a delightful setting on a hillside with many separate buildings. Clean, quiet, a wonderful indoor pool, much vegetation around, the lobby is fantastic and the desk clerks were most helpful. The shuttle bus for Yosemite stops here, a nominal fee is charged, but if... More

The 1st room we checked into the carpet was filthy. The front desk upgraded us to a room on the back part of the property that allowed more quiet and privacy with a personal deck overlooking pine trees.
