A surprisingly comfortable and affordable stay. The staff member at reception was exceedingly helpful to us especially with regard to offering assistance with booking us on a Yosemite tour as well as providing general advice on the area. Quite close to Yosemite and certainly worth a stay if you are visiting the national park

All went well. The room was spacious and clean. The pool was nearby and the water was a good temperature. Breakfast was good and complete. The drive to Yosemite Village was about 70 minutes. Check-in and check-out were quick. The motel is close to downtown Mariposa with several restaurant choices. We went to Miner's Inn and enjoyed that.

Awesome place to crash after a long day. The internet basically didn't work but everything else was great. The breakfast was surprisingly good (and Lisa was VERY helpful). If you're getting back late from Yosemite, there's only a few options, so be prepared!

We have stayed here twice when doing road trips around the national parks and had no problem on either occasion. Good sized rooms with 2 queen size beds, decent enough breakfast included within our room rate and a lovely location within the quaint village of Mariposa and easy driving access to nearby Yosemite! Would stay here again.

If you're planning on going to Yosemite, plan early as many if not all the hotels and lodging near Yosemite book up quickly. One of the next best alternatives is staying at Mariposa which is about 40 minutes away. I've stayed in a few Best Westerns and the one in Mariposa is actually quite good compared to the rest. It...

A nice hotel in a cute town 45 minutes from Yosemite. It is a convenient location with nice shops and restaurants. The hotel provided everything we needed and is pet friendly. We enjoyed being able to take our dog on the walking path through the park and into town.

If you are going to Yosemite book your hotel early at the lovely resorts at the park or suffer with the lowly and still expensive remaining accommodations elsewhere, (granted the minuscule bathroom was upgraded with marble)

The check in process was easy, the room was on the second floor but you could enter from the rear and not have to do the stairs. Fairly quite. Pool is small and water was hot. Breakfast was good. If you have to leave early there is no box breakfast available. We went to Yosemite and it was about 80...

We checked in late at night for a 2 nights stay. This hotel is conveniently located by the centre of the Mariposa village. The Breakfast was below expectations if 'plus' has any meaning. Narrow choice, plastic cutlery and worn furnishing. The pool is small but ok for a hot day. Our family room had two queen beds and was ok...

We stayed for a couple of nights while exploring Yosemite. Good location, about a 45 min -1 hour scenic drive to the park. The hotel was clean, quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was average but set you up for a day of hiking around the park very well. All the staff were friendly as well which helped make it a...
