This very large, busy, and crowded Best Western Inn exists to serve visitors to Yosemite National Park. Rooms are decent-sized and as clean as a large 100% occupancy hotel can be - they try hard. Be prepared for breakfast lines to the full buffet breakfast, and long waits for the crowded dining room - nevertheless, food at the dining room was surprisingly decent. The hotel is relatively expensive during high season for what you get and is probably better value during low seasons.

FYI the outdoor pool is closed and doesn't look like it will be open anytime soon. They do have an indoor pool. Otherwise, the room was nice, and the restaurant on site is pretty good. But for us, the pool was a deal breaker.

Hello bstarit,

I deeply apologize that the outdoor pool was not available during your stay with us. We have been working hard with many upgrades this year, such as expanding the outdoor pool deck, replacing the pool liner, adding a new 10-foot hot tub, adding RFID guest room locks, upgrading the restaurant with new flooring, blinds, and rock walls. We’re also upgrading our Wi-Fi and access points.

We had a challenge getting concrete poured for the pool and spa due to being in the mountains, and most contractors not wanting to leave 3 jobs just to do one. Luckily, we finally completed that challenging step. The only thing left to do is finish the new pool lining and tile work. We hope to have the new pool open within 2 weeks. Fortunately, we have a great indoor pool and spa available in the in the meantime.

At your service,
Curtis

We had a great stay at the Best Western Gateway. Lovely clean hotel with beautiful grounds. Room was well appointed and very clean. We loved having the wet sink area with fridge and microwave. Great for families. Nice, friendly staff and close to Yosemite. Would highly recommend.

A really great place to stay when visiting the Yosemite area. The hotel grounds are beautiful, has more of a resort charm and it is peaceful. Did I mention the breakfast, it is the best you can get anywhere, and with bonus of great views while having your meal. The rooms are comfortable but can be better with a little renovation. If I am back in the area, I will surely stay here

We were delighted with this classy hotel-- beautiful landscaping, with small, separate buildings that are set attractively into the hillside and make it feel more like a group of townhouses than a hotel. Very nice indoor pool. Everything has been thought of in the room for comfort, including great beds and pillows and areas for storing suitcases. The room was large and had a BALCONY-- with a comfortable seating area looking out on the trees.

The only thing I would change is that the French doors don't allow for screens, which meant the only real source of outside air (other than the small bathroom window) should be closed at night. We were on the second floor so we kept the balcony door open anyway. All in all, a really comfortable place to stay that doesn't have that commercial hotel feel and has been very intelligently and attractively thought out to be the equivalent of a resort.

We thought it offered quite good value for the price.
