Our room at Best Western Way Station was booked by my AAA travel agent. While on our trip i realized we could get there a day earlier and called the hotel. I was given a higher room rate than on my reservation for the same date. I could understand the higher room rate for the Sunday night, but why change what I already had. The manager insisted that my AAA rate was wrong, despite my having the print out. He suggested I call my travel agent and tell her. I could not reach her due to time difference and when I called back to the hotel I was given a different rate. The person did honor my AAA rate for one night ( not the night I had originally booked) and gave me the higher rate for 2nd night. At this point I took it. The hotel is located near Yosemite, about a 1 hour drive. However, there are other hotels closer which we saw on the way to the park. WiFi reception was okay, phone was roaming/extended service. Room had not been remodeled in ages. Air conditioner was very noisy, but did work. Some staff were helpful, others not so much. Breakfast was very poor. Sign said scrambled eggs, but they were yellow circles of something that tasted like eggs. Waffle machine had loose screws on one and broken timer on other. Very poor selection. On second morning my husband went to get orange juice and palely colored water came out. Restaurant is in a separate building, near pool. The restaurant staff were very nice and helpful. Our room was in the front and noise from road was not a problem.
