We stayed one night, if we had the time I would have stayed one more...Was very comfortable and the staff very friendly and accommodating. Very clean, the rooms are built into the hillside giving you a very nice view of the valley. If you are passing thru I would higly recommend this Hotel and their resaurant for you and your family.

The hotel is just 15 miles aways from the South Entrance of Yosemite National Park. It is situated along the Highway 41. It is very cozy and the price is reasonable. The room has a flat screen TV with several channels. They have a lot of outlets in the room which is very convenient for those who have a lot of devices to charge. Breakfast is not included in the package. The lobby is full of decorations and the staff are very accommodating. There are a lot of spaces to park in this hotel. I would recommend this hotel for people who are budget conscious.

Appreciate the artistry and naturalness of this motel. The pool experience was sweet. Dinner at the restaurant excellent. Staff responsive to needs. Close to Yosemite. Winter prices excellent. Looking forward to next stay.

The rooms are dark but very comfortable! Would stay there again. The desk personnel on the morning we left was a bit aloof - I was asking about information on a local route and she couldn't even stand up to look at the map I was showing her. Nonetheless, great value - beds were very comfortable! We didn't use any of the amenities (exercise room and hot tub) but they did offer discounts for eating in the restaurant next door. We would stay there again if we're ever in that area. The rate was reasonable at $71.99 before taxes.

This is a very nice hotel located about 30 minutes driving from one of the entrances to Yosemite park. It's ideal for those visiting Yosemite or those who do skiing over winter.
Rooms are comfortable and clean. One thing I liked it a lot is that there were plenty of power plugs. If you are like me, carrying many devices like smartphones, digital cameras, laptop, etc, you'll appreciate this.
It's a very nice hotel to stay either if you travel alone, for business or with family.
The hotel has a restaurant and our room included breakfast that was OK, but not excellent. The service and people at the restaurant were nice and helpful.
The hotel is located in a main road, just a few blocks away from everything, from supermarket/pharmacies, to restaurant and fast food.

Why the 2 stars only then? Because the people at the front desk.
There is a middle age woman who seems to be the one in charge at the front desk during the day with the name "Ellen" who is very rude and nasty. I thought it was just us, but I saw the same behavior with other customers. She is incapable of smile or being helpful and it's clearly to me she doesn't like her job. Why on earth a company like Best Western would allow someone like her to represent the company is out of my understanding.
The hotel is not close to big cities (Fresno is the closest one, about 45 minutes away driving) or airports, that means, if you get there, you'll be probably tired after a long driving and the last thing you want is to be treated poorly. If it wasn't because of this, I would rate the hotel 4.5 stairs instead of two.
In other hand, the people at the front desk at night was super nice and helpful, they certainly do not deserve to be cataloged the same way as their coworkers from the daytime.

Room Tip: The hotel doesn't have elevators, if you have a lot of luggage, ask for a room at main floor, ot...

She must have been having a bad day, as she is normally very cordial to our guests. I am sorry that you had a bad impression.

Although the rooms seemed a bit brown/dull, the beds were very comfortable with plenty of pillows and warm. The complimentary wifi was easy to logon to and the TV was easy to use. The only annoyance was the heater which sounded like an aeroplane starting up every time it turned on - not fun when you're trying to get to sleep!

The sign is easy to notice. The lobby is clean and the hotel staff is very nice. Our room is a little bit small however it's clean. This hotel looks beautiful than other Best Western, more space, more trees and locate on the slope of the hills. There are many restaurant around, not far from the hotel.
