Nice woodland view and in a good position for visiting Yosemite park. Laundrette useful, near pool area too. 2nd floor room, without lifts, may be tricky for older people with suitcases. Meal in hotel disappointing - my husbands wasnt hot enough so he sent it back.Called at Tenaya Lodge for brunch on way to park. Good value 20 dollars, nice... More

Location - about a 20 minute drive to Yosemite park entrance. Loads of eateries and bars in the vicinity of hotel Room - spacious with a balcony. Had a fridge, coffee maker and microwave. Decent shower. Comfy bed. Amenities - the launderette was a god send as this was a stop half way through trip. Cheap to use and you... More

Nice hotel with rustic feel to rooms. Clean and super friendly staff. The only complaint is that both pools were so full of chlorine it was unbearable to go in the water. The indoor pool was especially pungent, practically smacking you in the face when you open the door.

On the east coast, we only stay in Marriott and Hilton hotels. However, those are limited on the west coast in select areas. We were pleasantly surprised. There were indoor and outdoor pools. The room was recently decorated and very large. There was a small fridge with a sink. There wasn't any breakfast though. There was even a private balcony.... More

We stayed here on our way to Yosemite Because we couldn't find another option. And that's exactly the recommendation: don't go if you find something better. Just an average, with poor, unfriendly service, rather old rooms and few additional ammenities. And rather expensive for what you get.

We stayed her for a night en route to Yosemite and were not disappointed. The lobby was friendly and inviting, had quite a lodge feel. Our room was a good size and had a nice view. Staff were friendly upon check and check out. We went to breakfast at the restaurant where our experience was not as wonderful, the staff... More

Room wasn't ready until 1.5 hours after check in. Carpets were really dirty and worn. Booked through BW, 2 queen beds turned out to be 2 doubles. Beds, pillows were uncomfortable. Towels were rough and clearly very old. Aside from carpets, room was clean, but very dated.

The Gateway Inn is more of a motel than hotel. Rooms are in three or four blocks behind the lobby/reception, up quite a slope - ours was the furthest away! Basic rooms come complete with microwave and fridge, but no cutlery or crockery! Air con works well, which is good as it was boiling outside. It's not the most expensive... More

Make no mistake you are staying in this hotel/motel for location(Yosemite). The hotel is actually several buildings set into a fairly scenic hillside. We stayed one night in the 3 queen bed, family "suite". 2 queen beds are on one side, divided by a single bathroom, and the third queen bed on the other side. Mini fridge, coffee maker, cable...

This is such a great hotel. The appearance alone is enough to make you want to go back again and again. The grounds are immaculate and richly landscaped. Indoor and Outdoor pool, both immaculate! Rooms are amazing. They are big, there are hand painted murals on the walls and the beds are so comfortable. Convenient to drive into Yosemite for... More
