Emilee in reception is helpful and nice. Breakfast is good. Hotel is easy to locate, just off I 140.I will stay here when visiting Yosemite again.

The staff is super friendly. Once we went to our room I open the fridge to store some items and there was and old pint of ice cream who knows how long it was there for cause it was dripping. The room smelled musty, the carpet looked old and the night stand was peeling off from one corner. Other than that the hotel serve is purpose since we just used it to go to sleep at night after spending long days of hiking in Yosemite.

Dirty & smelly ground. Uncomfortable bed. Noisy AC. We came to prepare for our Half Dome hike. However, we only fell asleep for less than 2 hours because of poor condition of the room. It ruined our hike next morning (we felt dizzy at the sub-dome and gave up, even though we had luck to win the permit lottery.)

Everything was very good, and we'll certainly return on a way to Yosemite.

This is a comfortable hotel and close to everything. The breakfast is great also!

The only nice thing about this hotel is that its close to Yosemite. Luckily i got a good discount with Orbitz and glad i didn't pay full price. The room has a musky smell to it, and it has the old school AC's not the in-wall vents so it was tough having the AC on with kids because it was either stuffy and musky or freezing cold. Another downside is the beds, they're sooo uncomfortable, hard and no padding. The continental breakfast was semi edible. The scrambled eggs were watery, potatoes were rubbery, the only edible thing was the waffles. It's Best Western, I wasn't expecting much, but overall just not a pleasant experience especially with two little ones with us.

Best thing about it was the awesome pizza place just up the road. Dated furniture and décor. Had difficulty with tv and was offered no assistance.

Great little town. Very good full breakfast at the hotel. Try the 1850 restaurant for a great meal especially the venison and micro brews

We had a pleasant stay here. Front desk was courteous and accommodated our request for room location. Room was clean but old looking. Included breakfast was the best part. Lots to choose from and well kept.

Very (extremely) cranky and unfriendly lady at check-in. Room was way under par for the typical Best Western room and especially at the prices at this particular hotel.

Great location, good breakfast, super friendly staff.

We loved the hotel. Staff accommodated our request for connecting rooms. Rooms were both very clean, including the bathrooms. Beds were clean, very comfortable. Breakfast was very good with lots of options. I highly recommend this hotel on your way to or from Yosemite. Exactly 1 hour drive from here to Yosemite village.

NICE LOCATION AND EASY TO FIND. THE ROOM IS OLD BUT VERY CLEAN. I RECOMMAND.

Convenient for us. Benefit of fridge and microwave inside room. No hotel services but free breakfast was not bad-yet at other Best Westerns there was more food choices for breakfast. I would stay there again. Restaurants in town-we particularly liked 1851 and a burger place nearby.

Friendly staff and great location near Yosemite. I highly recommend stopping by the town Visitor Center as they can tell you which paths are closed etc and are a great resource, especially if it is your first visit.

The hotel was pretty quiet. The walking distance to the Pizza Factory has very good foods. The hotel is conveniently located close to the 140 hwy, which has a very nice view going to the Yosemite National Park.
