This is the closest motel to the Westgate of Yosemite and we chose it to get an early start at the park. We were very pleasantly surprised by this exceptionally clean and very well maintained establishment. The cleanest hotel we experienced in our 2 week stay in California. The restaurant next door served good food and great pies at reasonable...

The rooms here are nice enough and the onsite diner/bar is pretty good too. The downside is there is nothing else within walking distance and the lack of wifi was a drawback for us as we like to keep in touch with our family when travelling (there's no mobile signal either). Not a bad place by any means but we'd...

We stayed at Yosemite Lodge during the Memorial Day weekend this year. We booked this as we could not find any place inside the National park for the busy weekend. We were very happy that the wifi was not available and also no AT&T coverage - it was exactly what we needed. A good break from internet & work emails!!...

My husband and I stayed at the Westgate 6/9 and 6/10. It is an older hotel but kept up really nice. It is not a 5 star but we had no complaints with the exception of no Wi-Fi. That was rather disappointing as that was one of the reasons we chose to stay there. However, we were near a National...

We recently spent 3 weeks on a fly drive holiday covering 4 US states. The welcome everywhere was great. Our pre paid vouchers were always accepted without question. We did our home work and all accomodation was high end. The one we got wrong was the Westgate Lodge. This is not luxuary, it is a basic road side motel. On...

We stayed here for two nights while on honeymoon. The one downside was that their wifi was not working and they didn't know when it would be fixed, but we viewed that as a risk you take when you stay so close to a national park. The room was clean and comfortable and the couple of issues we had on...

Fine place in Stanislaus National Forest well east of Groveland. We were a prior night reservation and found a comfortable, clean spacious room. Also lucky in that we could stay a 2nd night when the high pass through Yosemite was blocked by late May snowstorm (only rain at Yosemite and Groveland. While we went off to dinner in the Park...

Dear Guest: High five! And a fist bump! Thanks for the Five Circle Perfect Review! We love getting those.

We booked at the last minute when visiting Yosemite, this isn't far from the western exit from the park. Large room, comfy beds, TV, fridge, coffee machine and nice bathroom. No wifi but we were knackered from travelling all day so didn't need it. They have a nice little pool and hot tub but we never got around to using...

I visit Yosemite often and I usually prefer staying in this hotel. The rooms are comfortable, clean and it is very close to the park. Once in a while, somehow their rates are high, then I chose other options in Mariposa. I *love* the restaurant next door! Buck Meadows. Food is delicious, staff is friendly and price is great!
