“For the area, it's relatively good”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

You can't expect too much when you get a place outside of Yosemite. Tourists come here for a night or two and move on--there isn't a need to foster repeat business.

So we weren't surprised that the room was basic but clean. That's pretty much all we needed.
Yes, they could add some more photos to the room or put a new coffee maker inside, but because this is just a place for spending the night before or after a day of hiking, it deserves four stars (relatively speaking).

Breakfast is filling too.

Stayed May 2014, travelled as a couple

Hotel staff was great from start to finish, clean room and good breakfast. Location for visiting Yosemite Park was great and able to walk into town for meals and shopping. Room rate was a little pricey.

There were bed bugs in the room! I got more than 10 rashes on my hands, legs, waist, neck and etc. Earlier I thought it's from the mosquito in Yosemite Park. Then on the day of check out, I found bed bug on my bed and two blood spots on the sheet. Now I'm really worried that I may bring bed bug home!

The hotel was nice, rooms were clean, staff was nice and gave ideas for what to do in town. There was no tub in the room which was a bit disappointing. They said we would have had to request it when we made the reservation. Breakfast was about average--not really good, but it was included in the price. Compared to the other hotels in the area the Best Western seems to be newer and of better quality.

I stayed in a room with a King sized bed and everything was very good with the exception of the light from the vanity/bathroom area spilled directly onto the bed resulting in waking up my girlfriend when the light was turned on. If you or your partner are light sleepers this may be an issue. The location is walking distance to shops and restaurants and an scenic one hour drive to Yosemite Valley.

It's a good place to stay outside of the park as it's about 40 minutes or so from the Arch Rock entrance. It's a beautiful drive to and from Mariposa. I wouldn't stay here if you plan to go in and out each day you would waste a lot of time driving. Just bite the bullet and stay in the park. If you're doing a day trip it's perfect. The facilities are average, but adequate.

We liked this hotel a lot, the people on the front desk where very nice and helpful regarding all the topics about Yosemite Valley. Mariposa is a nice town to stay, not much to do, but a very comfortable place. The breakfast at this hotel was awesome, everything was fresh and delicious. The rooms are very nice and comfortable along with the bathroom inside the room.
