We paid a premium of staying here over other hotels which were cheaper and better. The rooms are at least 30 years old and the air con was dreadful. They seemed dark and almost scary. We paid for this hotel because from the pictures it looked good and a lot better than the other in the area however that was not the case. In future we know to prioritise location over hotel , the drive was horrific each morning and made us tired before we even got to the park. The hotel pool was small however is you can find a chair it’s okay to sit by. I wouldn’t recommend this hotel was it’s far from the park and just outdated. However they have 3 great waffle machines.

While the amenities and exterior were nice the room was not and that is the main reason for a hotel. The room was on the smallish side for having two beds. The bottom of the bathtub had a blackish tinge to it. The picture on the flat screen tv looked like it was coming in over rabbit ears on a tv from 1985. my biggest complaint is the beds. we booked a room that was said to have two queen size beds. The mattresses were clearly not queen sized. A queen bed is traditionally 60 inches wide. these beds were 55 inches which is a full size bed using standard mattress size standards. I personally have a queen size bed at home in which my young daughter, her mother and myself can fit into so we assumed the same would be true for the "queen size" bed at the hotel. When I brought it up to the front desk they brushed aside my complaint telling me that the beds are what's considered "hotel queen" mattresses. I feel it is deceptive to advertise a full size mattress as a queen size mattress. If I ever go back to Yosemite I will not be staying here.

Hello Steve,

Thank you for sharing your experience of your stay with us. When ordering beds, we do order queen sized beds based on Best Western Premier standards. We also only order queen sized sheets, and the sheets fit tightly on the bed. I apologize that our beds are not the same size beds that you have at home.

Sincerely,
Curtis

We arrived, checked in and issued room, once at room we found it was occupied by someone else. Thank goodness no one was in there.
Was given a new room next to outdoor pool.
Room was average, very old and tired and the air conditioner was very noisy, could not sleep with it on. Ceiling fan was ok but again noisy.
Room was clean, bed comfortable, it was nice to be able to sit outside and have a beer overlooking the pool.
Breakfast was served in the restaurant and that was good but the dinner was very average.
Easy access to Yosemite but leave early in morning as it can get busy on the road.
Staff friendly and helpful.

Hello Tshelll2016,

Thank you for the feedback. My apologies for being issued a room key for the wrong room. We have re-trained all of our front desk associates to ensure this does not happen to other valued guests.

At your service,

We stayed when we were returning from Yosemite National park. All suroundings met our expectations - there was quiet environment, comfortable rooms, pool and very good breakfast in the morning. It seems that hotel is older, but it is clean.
