This was a nice place to stay. The motel is close proximity to Yosemite roughly 45 mile drive in to the park from here. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The ladies that worked in the breakfast room were awesome! Convenient walking distance to places for food and shopping.

This is an extremely overpriced hotel, all due to its proximity to Yosemite (though it's actually quite far - a good hour drive to the valley, if you're lucky!) And this shouldn't be a Best Western Plus - this is most definitely not a "Plus" - it's a regular Best Western - not sure how it got its "Plus" designation....

Bit embarassed...just realised I popped this hotel's review for a different best western! We were tired after a day in Yosemite and this was not the hotel recommended at the information centre. We came here because the staff at reception were more courteous and helpful. They even gave us a downstairs room because they heard me say we were tired!...

We stayed here for three nights. Beverly checked us into the hotel & was very accommodating. She was very helpful. The room was clean & plenty of towels. The room was made up every day. The lighting in the room, bathroom & vanity area is great! The colors of the walls are on the darker side so the BRIGHT lighting...

Vacation rental selected randomly. We found the accommodations excellent, very clean and everything functional. As noted, the beds were absolutely the best hotel beds I have ever slept upon. Breakfast was well done with good variety. Nice pool and hot tub. Try to book a room around the back side to cut down on the road noise.

We enjoyed the newly remodeled rooms, and the accessible features in the room, especially the bathroom. The staff was superb and had good suggestions for us. This was a nice distance from Yosemite, and we enjoyed the rides to and from the park very much. The breakfast room was large, light and airy, with B&W photos taken in Yosemite. The...

The place was more than we expected and very pleased with where we were placed which was and end unit. It had a ceiling fan and that was all we needed. Also had a TV of which we did not expect as we stayed at other places in parks that did not supply same.

Well situated 'Austrian-chalet-style' hotel. Comfortable, clean, and has a great atmosphere, The restaurant is very good and the fixed price menu for hotel guests is very good value. Would definitely stay again.

We booked this hotel as part of our labor day weekend road trip to yosemite. We are staying here today and both interactions we had with the front desk were horrible. The front desk staff starts shouting at you for no fault of yours. We booked a night with two queen bed room two week in advance. But when we...

This hotel was good for if you just need a place to sleep after visiting Yosemite each day. The pool was nice and it's got a typical continental breakfast. Nice staff. The rooms aren't laid out perfectly, but adequate for spending time at Yosemite. Good views. Right on the highway as well.
