Best Western Plus Yosemite Way Station

Yosemite National Park, USA

The hotel

Gold Country? Yosemite? Cutesy Mariposa itself? Whatever your excuse for visiting the region, Best Western Plus Yosemite Way Station acts as an ‘access all areas’ base. Right on Highway 140, it’s near Mariposa’s dining and shopping, and within two 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, just over 30 miles from the hotel, or Sierra National Forest, a little further away. Before you head out each day, fill up with hot breakfast treats, waffles, muffins, and naughty pastries. And, when you get back, you can make the most of the tennis courts, complimentary WiFi and seasonal swimming pool and hot tub.

The staff was very friendly and courteous. The was nice, clean and comfortable. The internet for TV was less than stellar but considering you are in the mountain it is to be expected. Otherwise a very please stay and I would recommend to family and friends.

We were extremely satisfied with our stay at BW at Mariposa. It went above our expectations when we found the nice hot breakfast to start our day. The hotel was clean throughout and amenities were in good shape. The hotel looked well maintained.

The room was about what I expected from the pictures. I would love to stay here again... if... The hot breakfast was meh.. (do not get the burrito the bagel topper is so much better) After a day of hiking and moving it would have been nice to be able to use the spa/hot tub since the room tubs weren't nearly as deep to rest sore bodies in... And add on top of that the beds, as others have mentioned, are not the most comfortable it was even more doubly wished to have a hot soak. Besides that the location is great! Read less

Beds were horrible - hard and very uncomfortable. We didn't sleep well at all. I felt like the carpets could be replaced. There was one night with a questionable couple fighting in the parking lot.

Other than that, the people were pleasant and we liked the location. Mariposa is a cute town. It was a good value. If the beds were better, we would definitely stay there again. Read less

A nice place to take your family for a quick get away. Great access to Yosemite (40 minutes). The entire hotel staff was friendly and professional. Large TV's in the rooms for your nighttime enjoyment. Comfortable beds and an excellent shower.
