Best Western Plus Yosemite Gateway Inn

Reviewed March 2, 2013

We stayed here one time in February.

Pulled in at 10PM on a Monday night with the parking lots pretty full. We needed a room for the night and walking into the lodge/front desk I was expecting to pay at least a hundred $. Wrong! we were quoted a rate of $58.xx plus tax, SOLD! We requested a ground floor room and unsure of the area wanted to leave the packed SUV in sight of the front desk window.

The room was perfect with 2 queens, clean comfortable and large.

We didn't have time to experience any of the amenities like free breakfast but the Wi-Fi worked great. Will definitely star here again of the need arises.

I reserved a room online here at the last minute, as we had to pick up a vehicle in the area. I went to check in and discovered I reserved that room for the NEXT month, not the day I wanted to check in. They were very accommodating, and fortunately for me, that night I was there, a King room was available.(Saturday night) but the next night was booked up, we were thinking of maybe staying another night, but since it was booked for Sunday night, we just made the trip back home to the coast. The room was simple, but very clean. Had a microwave, mini fridge, and coffee maker. Large flatscreen TV. Walking distance to a few restaurants nearby. I did request a room that had upgrading, and they accommidated me there as well. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: The King sized rooms were the most recent upgrades, I was told. Rooms that backed up to pool area (w...

We made our reservations really early so we still got the free breakfasts. The hotel and restaurant staffs were friendly and helpful. Being mobility impaired, parking in front of the room was a big plus. The hotel is built on the side of the mountain with several different buildings so even though the hotel was sold out, there was a nice feel of isolation. Our room was clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable but as we always take our own pillows, we can't address the pillow issue. We had one slight issue and the manager was on scene at our room within 5 minutes, and we were well satisfied with his disposition of the matter. Due to an injury at the park, we had to cut our visit short by one day. Our refund was handled in a friendly and timely manner. Having stayed both here and at several of the lodges inside the park, we will be staying here for our future visits to Yosemite.

My girlfriend and I stayed here in Feb 2013 for 2 night. This place is located right in Oakhurst, about 30 mins drive away from the south entrance to Yosemite. The room was a good size, but the decor needs updating (for example the room had a peach bathroom suite). There is an indoor heated pool and spa, which was a nice touch. Breakfast was included in the room rate and included cooked items, my only criticism was the speed of service, and their highlighting of the fact that service was not included for your 'free' breakfast. If travelling to yosemite in the winter you will need snow chains definitely, I would recommend O'Sullivans tyre shop in Oakhurst, who charged $50, but accept returns (50%) if unused. Oakhurst itself was a strange town, with little going on entertainment wise. There is an excellent BBQ restaurant opposite the Hotel, which is also relatively inexpensive (an order at the counter place). If travelling to this part of the world again (which I hope to do) I would stay somewhere in Mariposa.

NO MORE FREE BREAKFAST. OLDER building with plumbing issues.
Shower water pressure was like that from a 99 cent water toy. It took 20min just to wash the soap off. Visible cracks in every wall. My previous stay made me come back, but now I will find another for my "go to" stay at Yosemite.

We spent 2 nights here. Overall our stay was fine, and we probably would stay here again.
Issus:
Front desk staff not friendly or welcoming at all
Restaurant staf. Was very helpful and nice.
The bed is very comfortable, but the pillows are terrible! They look nice on the bed, bit very firm and very puffy. We were so glad we had brought our own.
There were sunflower seeds on the carpet and on the bathroom floor.
While we were there they made our bed. They did not empty the ice bucket or the coffee pot, caused us to wonder about the cleanliness standards.
We were in a room that faced the main highway. It was not too loud. There was a lot of traffic in the room right next door. Cars would pull up for a few minutes and then leave. In the matter of an hour, this happened about 5-6 times. We thought maybe they were selling drugs!
We later saw that it is the room they use for the hotel maids. It would have been good to know this.
They give a 25% discount in the hotel restaurant for breakfast only, which was great. The food was good. We ate there both mornings. On the second morning they had run out of ham and sausage which was disappointing. Beautiful area. Good place Toste if you want to go to Yosemite.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main highway

We arrived just as it was starting to snow. We got to our warm room and watched the snow come down.
The room was large and good size bathroom. Clean, comfortable beds.
When the snow stopped we were able to use their laundry facilities.
We also went to the onsite bar/restaurant. It was good hearty food with nice service. The fireplace in the bar was great with a red wine in hand!
All staff we came across were nice and helpful.
Only stayed one night, couldn't get in to Yosemite due to weather but doesn't seem too far away.
