The hotel

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.

On a road trip out from San Francisco we stumbled into this town while making our way towards Yosemite. Skye did a fantastic job checking us to some ideal rooms for our family. We then bugged her multiple times over 2 days with questions and requests which she always helped with a never ending friendly smile and attitude! For breakfast the lady on duty was also super helpful showing us Aussies the correct way to make waffles! Rooms were clean and warm and the service was great. Plenty of good spots to walk up to for dinner each night so 5 stars for this stay! Read less

Nice place, clean throughout, comfy beds, quiet night's sleep. Breakfast starts 6:30 and typical. Clean and comfortable, plenty of pillows. Motel style with all entry doors outside, not internal hallways. Good location to downtown Mariposa.

Great hotel and super friendly staff. Everything was super clean and quiet. We did not take advantage of the breakfast or pool though. Short walk to a super cute downtown with shops and restaurants. Would fully recommend.

We had entered from the south and spent a day in the park, and this was the perfect place to drive out at the end of the day. Great restaurants in town and a good breakfast. From here we were able to easily explore the gold rush towns in sonora, Columbia and Jamestown before heading on to SFO.
