Yosemite National Park, USA
Gold Country? Yosemite? Cutesy Mariposa itself? Whatever your excuse for visiting the region, Best Western Yosemite Way Station acts as an ‘access all areas’ base. Right on Highway 140, it’s beside a playground, near Mariposa’s dining and shopping, and within 2 miles of California Mining and Mineral Museum and the History Center’s gold panning, a throwback to the gold rush days. Keep driving and you’ll arrive in Yosemite National Park, with its entrance 32 miles from the hotel, or Sierra National Forest, 37 miles away. Before you head off, you can fill up with hot breakfast treats, waffles, muffins, and naughty pastries at the breakfast bar. And, when you get back, you can make the most of the tennis courts, complimentary WiFi, and seasonal pool and hot tub.
Breakfast bar (complimentary hot breakfast and pastries). Outdoor swimming pool (seasonal). Hot tub (seasonal). Tennis courts. WiFi available*.
