Best Western Plus Yosemite Gateway Inn
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Oakhurst
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 May 2012

Overall, no problems were encountered at my lodging at this Best Western motel. The check in and check out went smoothly. The staff were all pleasant and friendly. Glad I had made a reservation since this place was sold out when I arrived. The room was clean and had an electric fireplace, the bed was comfortable, and it was a quiet night's stay. The exercise facility was closed for renovation, so I cannot comment on the quality of the exercise equipment. The free breakfast buffet had a huge selection of food at the on-site restaurant. The only thing "negative" about the food was the dried out potatoes. On a scale of one to ten (ten being the top rating), I would score the Best Western Plus Yosemite Gateway Inn a "9". Indeed, this establishment comes highly recommended.

The grounds here are lovely! The building are set apart with spaces between that include flowers, bushes, and lots of green grass. Even the pool is set apart in a garden-like setting. The room was quiet and comfortable with a microwave and a refrigerator. Even thought they were short-staffed on the night I was there, the folks at reception were helpful and considerate. The hot breakfast buffet is located in the restaurant building next door. All in all, a good choice for a couple of nights.

This is an average Best Western hotel. Nothing over the top. We stayed in nicer, but for the money...you get what you pay for. Our room was facing the road which did not afford us beautiful grounds as other posters have stated. It could have been better if the room had a door that opened up to the balcony so you could sit outside in the evenings. I don't know why you would have a balcony and not put a door in to enjoy it. Breakfast was adequate to start your day. All the employees were very friendly and accomodating except for the front desk people. They were there to just do their job. Plenty of places to get a bite to eat in the area. The Starbucks was an added surprise down the road. The steak house "Sweetwater" just minutes toward the park was great! Excellent food and service. If we visit the area again we will definitey stay in the Bass Lake area. It was beautiful.

I live in hotels several months out of the year due to my job. We had some days off so decided to head to yosemite. This hotel was a perfect option and great value for the area. The room was clean and spacious, the property was amazing and kept up really nice. The breakfast is at the restraunt that shares the property and was a nice buffet with more options than most hotels. (Also very yummy) The maids were friendly and very thourough (always tip maids, they work hard!) We enjoyed the outdoor pool and secluded outdoor jaccuzi. It is 15 miles from the south gate of yosemite. I would for sure stay here again.

Stopped in Oakhurst on our way to a 4 night stay in Yosemite. The value of the room for the money was excellent. The tranquil forest like grounds are fabulous. The staff was very helpful. The rooms are large and clean. The buffet breakfast was very good too.
We will definitely stay there again...

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel. The room was large and the location good. The breakfast included was pretty good. The service was great. Excellent value for our stay so close to Yosemite. The only complaint I could make is the pillows were pretty thick so we wound up using a folded blanket instead. That may be just personal preference though.
