Best Western Plus Yosemite Way Station Motel
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Mariposa
Reviewed March 26, 2014

This was a great little hotel very conveniently located in relation to Yosemite. The rooms were VERY nice and didn't look like your typical exterior-corridor rooms at all. The little town of Mariposa is cute and had plenty of restaurants and little shops. If I had one complaint, it would be about the breakfast offerings. The breakfast room was nice and large and well-attended. I just didn't understand why they had cream cheese, but no bagels. Also, either offer packs of oatmeal with stuff (raisins, nuts, etc.) already in them, or offer at least brown sugar and raisins for packs of plain oatmeal. Everything else was great, though. We'd definitely stay there again!

We chose this hotel because we wanted to tour Yosemite and we traveled with our small dogs. The room was nice. We were on the second floor on the end facing the pool. There was a light outside that was quite bright and the curtains were not adequate to block that light. Fortunately for us ... we travel with eye sleep shades. Although the hotel is dog friendly they do not have a designated pet area but, the hotel is adjacent to a walking path that leads into the quaint town. This path is not lit at night ... but was quite nice during the day. Because we were tired and just wanted to have a quick meal ... we made the mistake of eating food from the Chinese/Thai restaurant across the street from the hotel. The included breakfast was nice.

Room Tip: All the rooms that we saw appeared to be OK ... no real difference between the back of the building...

My wife had to do some work in Mariposa and we stayed @ the Best Western. The rooms were nice sized and very confortable. My only complaint was not enough outlets for using computers as we travel w/ 2 computers and work on out trips a lot.
The breakfast was very adequate and what we normally get @ most Best Western's.

Mariposa is a cute mountain town in Central California. The Best Western Plus Yosemite Way Station is a nice base camp for exploring the foothills and Yosemite National Park. The drive coming from north is a little winding but beautiful in the spring with many wildflowers blooming. If you want a sleepy little town this is it. Bring the camera the scenery is beautiful.

Not "high class" by any standards but a good, affordable motel for a family to stay at for time at Yosemite. Located in the quaint town of Mariposa, right off Highway 140 on the way to the west entrance to Yosemite National Park, it was an easy 45 min drive to the park. Motel staff very helpful, very friendly, very knowledgable about Yosemite. Great tip from Donna at front desk to stop at Pioneer Market in Mariposa on way into Yosemite to get fresh deli sandwiches for picnic lunch in park! Motel had clean, updated, large rooms. Good free wifi. Free Breakfast in huge room adjacent to motel, plenty of room and variety. Would stay there again if traveling to Yosemite.

Although we only stayed two nights at this hotel, and we were 15 people, it was amazing the service and the hotel itself. Spite of being located by the road we had no noise, the rooms were big, clean and comfortable. The staff were very attentive, Bob guided us how to go to Yosemite Valley with great enthusiasm and the lady at breakfast was super helpful. I recommend this hotel to anyone who does not need luxury and want good price!
