First time taking the wife and kids to Yosemite. While I had been to Yosemite before, I camped so I wasn’t familiar with the accommodations in the area. Initially, I was blown away at the prices for the accommodations in or surrounding the park. They were going for $300-$500 per night. Even hotels in El Portal were going for over $200. Wawona was $300 per night. So, when I saw the price for Yosemite Westgate Lodge, I was skeptical. $120 per night? Something HAS to be up. Turns out I was absolutely wrong. This place was excellent. It’s a charming lodge with bear statues throughout the property (which the kids loved), a nice pool area (which we didn’t get to use because it’s fall), a small playground which my kids didn't want to leave, and some well-lit outdoor seating areas, perfect for kicking back after a day of exploring the park. It’s located in Buck Meadows about a 20-25 minute drive from the Big Oak Flat park entrance and 10-15 minutes from “downtown” Groveland. Keep in mind that even after entering the park, there’s still another 20-30 minute drive to reach the valley floor. I’m from Hawaii, where driving more than 20 miles is considered a road trip. So, if the drive didn’t bother me, it shouldn’t bother you. Admittedly, it’s not the most convenient option if you need easy access to your hotel room. But what’s the fun of going back to your hotel room when you’re in Yosemite? The rooms were simple, but clean and appear to have been recently updated. Loved the microwave, mini-fridge, and Keurig. I was also pleasantly surprised by the number of electrical outlets and USB ports. Also, it was nice to have the Lucky Buck Restaurant right next door. Loved the service and the excellent food. Great hours too. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice lodge. The room was spacious and very clean and modernized. I woke up in the middle of the night to some noise outside and got to see a black bear tearing into the trash cans, so exciting to see.

We appreciate the cleanliness of the rooms and comfortable beds. The owners were accommodating even during stressful Covid times. The Lucky Buck restaurant was a nice surprise.... expected a "meat and 3" place but it has a very nice menu with healthy choices and friendly staff. Folks should know the nearest grocery store is in Groveland if you want snacks or drinks in the room. Refrigerator was a nice amenity. The drive to Yosemite was not bad and the difference in price for park hotels was significant.

Room seems was recently updated, modern finishes. Bed ok, not a foam top though. Clean, quiet, all you can hope for. Restaurant next door very convenient and super friendly staff, great service, good food. Big breakfast for a busy day and dinner in the evening. Did not use the pool. Nice modern TV, remote doesn't really work since the satellite box is hidden behind tv, so have to stand directly under tv for it to work. But wasn't that big of a deal. We were so tired from our exploring that we just fell asleep early. I would recommend this hotel. Easy access to Yosemite.

We stayed at this place for its close proximity to Yosemite. It’s located fairly isolated but with access to a cafe adjacent to the hotel. It has a surprisingly clean and nice swimming pool and playground. Staff were friendly. Room is clean and updated, too! The USB ports for charging devices definitely came handy.
