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.

We were very pleased with our stay at this hotel. The beds could be upgraded but overall we had a positive experience. It is in a great location to visit Yosemite. We recommend you consider staying here.

Expensive for the basic style of hotel but obviously not for its location. Large room fridge microwave large vanity area coffee facilities. It provides everything needed but not value for money. I guess that’s due to it’s convenient location to Yosemite. Across the road are a few eateries and liquor store. Walking distance are a few local stores.… Read more

I guess that’s due to it’s convenient location to Yosemite. Across the road are a few eateries and liquor store. Walking distance are a few local stores. Great for a stop over for Yosemite although a little too far to use as a base as it’s over an hour. It’s very expensive compared with a hotel the night before that was more modern and this hotel was four times the price for a more dated hotel. Whilst comfortable it’s quite dated and the sheets are well worn. The staff were very friendly. Breakfast was scrambled eggs sausages gravy biscuits waffles porridge cereals fruit toast pastries. WiFi ok not brilliant. Loads of parking. Read less

Easy check in with very helpful friendly staff very clean and everything you would need. Very good choice at self service breakfast in an excellent location for Yosemite. This Hotel is in a lovely town which is full of character and well worth a visit.

This hotel has everything you need- good spacious rooms, clean and tidy. The pool is a nice extra, especially in the intense heat. Staff friendly, washing facilities, and a good breakfast included in the price of the room.

I would say this is the nicest place to stay in Mariposa. Rooms are simple but very clean. The blinds block out all sun. Our room was on the backside of the building. Was very quiet there. Nice little walking trail takes you right into town so no need to drive. The complimentary breakfast had a large selection and was wonderful. Has a work… Read more
